American Kush packs quite a punch. As alluded to, it comes with a lot of THC. Tests show that it contains between 18% to as much as 27%. Because of that, it can be overwhelming especially for beginners and those with low tolerance level.
A fast-acting strain, its onset begins with a tingling sensation at the back of the head and the neck. In most hybrids, it takes a while for the Indica traits to manifest. However, that is not the case with American Kush. Almost as soon as a euphoric cerebral high set in, an electrifying sensation travels down the spine and spreads all over the body.
As the Indica traits take over the body, the mental stimulation and uplifting body high leaves users feeling quite happy. Not only that, it continues to intensify and induce deep relaxation. The strain is best used in the evening and is especially helpful to patients who need quality sleep.
The distinct aroma of this strain is unique from many Indica-dominant hybrids. It is neither stinky nor strong. Instead, it has a floral scent that is reminiscent of lavender with a citrusy and lemony note.
