Cali Kush must have been a no-brainer when it came time to name this strain given the popularity of Kush varieties in The Golden State. California Kush is a nice, well rounded hybrid strain which is Indica dominant. It has nice large compact buds with a large number of leaves. The flowers will appear with the color light green mixed with a light ice type blue, and as a bonus, has trichomes scattered throughout. The aroma of the buds themselves are a fruity and somewhat citrus smell, mixed with dark coffee undertones, all of which are present in the taste of the smoke. When smoking Cali Kush, spiciness replaces the fruity smell, and the coffee aroma is much more prominent. The side effects are nice and balanced, leaving you feeling happy, lazy, and sleepy but without giving you couch lock. While it is mostly used for stress medically, its seen a lot of use to treat insomnia, pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression.
