Platinum Kush is a strong mostly indica variant that has become more and more popular, especially along the warm West Coast of the United States. This potent plant is popular for recreational as well as medical use, and is a solid contender for a cure all, which is no surprise, considering its high THC and CBD levels.

A popular strain on the sunny Californian coast, Platinum Kush is widely revered by users in the medical cannabis scene. It is popular for its no-frills potency, and is a heavy-handed indica, that is almost guaranteed to inspire you to stay glued to your couch. This strong sedative effect is what makes it an ideal go-to strain for those who require a little help in finding true relaxation.

Platinum Kush has pocketed several respected awards, most notably scoring the first place prize for best hydro strain in the 1994 High Times Cup. Since then, this indica has amassed a steady fanbase, and continues to grow in popularity, not only because of its soothing effects, but also because of its high yielding potential.
