The experience is made fuller with the addition of OG Kush, perhaps the most well-known cannabis of all time, and the cerebral kick it adds. Apart from the focused head high that sparks creativity, it is also recognized for its relaxing touch. Indeed, it is the true definition of dank.
Together, it creates a hybrid to be reckoned with. The best part is that Kushberry, while just as heavy-hitting as its parents, is not one to induce crippling euphoria or couch-lock when taken in moderate doses. Potent and profound, this herb can be enjoyed at one’s preferred pace.
Odors and Flavors
Kushberry fills the room with a bright aroma that blends a refreshing mix of pulpy fruits – from the subtle sweetness of blueberries to even some undertones of sourness from lemon. Hints of skunkiness give its smoke it quite an invigorating buzz to the senses while its citric flavors are just as tangy and zesty despite the fact that it leaves an earthy aftertaste on the exhale.
Kushberry’s Indica properties perfectly complement the bracing character of a sativa. During the onset, it induces a euphoric high that clears the mind of self-depreciating thoughts. Replacing it is a sense of well-being and an innate sense of optimism
In moderate doses, it inspires thoughts to flow freely, provoking the mind to be creative rather than racy. It replenishes lost energy throughout the day so one can pursue passion projects after work with a can-do attitude. Still, there are many who prefer to use the added zing to converse with friends. After all, the bursts of laughter from other people’s stories is equally refreshing
Gradually, the physically soothing body buzz starts to creep in. Starting from the temples, it soothes aching muscles while slipping users into a state of relaxation. Making its way towards the extremities is a heaviness that plants itself in the limbs. At the height of which, it can make people feel lazy.
In all likelihood, a higher dose will glue one onto the couch in either bliss as one loses their way in introspection or in an anxiety-inducing mind race.
Using a potent strain like Kushberry beyond one’s personal limitation can be overwhelming. Apart from the usual dry eyes and mouth, individuals also experience bouts of dizziness that can potentially develop into a subtle feeling of paranoia as it heightens sensations further. And, although it is mostly restricted to a headache, it is still best to practice moderation by starting with lower doses. Moreover, these symptoms gradually fade away as the body flushes out the psychoactive THC compound.
Medical Use and Benefits
Possessing holistic abilities that appease both psychological and physical ailments, the string of therapeutic benefits that Kushberry brings with its fruit-flavored smokes makes it an enjoyable alternative to synthetic drugs. It is efficient too, acting within minutes after the first few puffs.
Also great as a daytime remedy, individuals struggling with chronic stress and depression find reprieve in its uplifting properties. It liberates pre-occupied minds from the troubling clutches of self-depreciating thoughts. Temporarily freed from the shackles of negativity, people feel compelled to engage in a myriad of laidback productivity throughout the day. Provided, of course, that the bud is used in low doses as it can be quite heavy-hitting.
A notable analgesic, its painkilling properties spreads through the body and obliterates symptoms of muscle spasms, arthritis, and cramps. Among its best uses, in fact, is soothing intraocular pressure which can develop into glaucoma if left unattended. Ironically, as much as it causes headaches, it can also soothe it too. Soon enough, the need to sleep takes over even the toughest insomniac.
