Cannabis, in general, is known to produce some of the most mind-altering sensations known to man. At the same time, the plant is capable of relaxing and calming even the most agitated person and can provide temporary yet effective symptom relief to various types of illnesses.

Hence, quite a number cannabis varieties are given aliases that relate to their specific effects. Although these are only figurative representations of how the strain temporarily affects the body, it is very effective in gaining a lot of attention especially from users who are especially fond of all the strong psychoactive and heavy body effects of certain strains.

Speaking of such varieties, one good example is the strain called Cataract Kush. Most of us have probably heard of a certain medical condition called cataract. Well, the strain’s name is obviously inspired on that for a reason. While the actual cataract can be a progressive condition that will ultimately blur one’s vision, the Cataract Kush strain can temporarily cause a wonky visual sense among smokers.

Although this might be a little disturbing or uncomfortable to some, the experience is actually tolerable to seasoned users. This leads us to the discussion on the overall profile of this strain. Unfortunately, beginners might have to take their time before they can start smoking on this one and the information below will prove that point.

DNA Genetics takes the credit for the creation of Cataract Kush. It was developed by crossing the well-respected California-born OG Kush and the award-winning LA Confidential. The latter has won numerous awards from the High Times Cannabis Cup and has continued to be one of the most highly regarded strains today.

Users of Cataract Kush would describe its smoking experience as like having cataracts on their eyes. Thus, it’s uncanny name. Nonetheless, there is no reason to panic since the cataract-like effect is only temporary.

    Cataract Kush has the reputation of being a creeper, but it is certainly not to be underestimated. The stain is equipped with a maximum of 24% THC level, making it one of the most highly potent strains available in the market. Consequently, it is not the best strain choice for novice users or practically those with low tolerance to high THC concentration.

    We don’t currently sell Cataract Kush seeds. Check out other indica dominant seeds in our marijuana seed bank.

    The strain is 99% Indica, so users should expect a type of high that is really heavy on the body. However, Cataract Kush still offers a significant head buzz that is characterized by an uplifting euphoria and a happy sensation.

    Once the dominating Indica concentration kicks in, users will feel a sense of deep relaxation that can effectively induce sedation and sleep. In higher doses, the strain can easily stimulate laziness, lethargy and even couch lock especially when users overindulge on the strain.

    Note that the effects of Cataract Kush may continue to build-up long after the user stops smoking it. Due to its strong sedative properties, Cataract Kush is an ideal evening strain for both recreational and medical use.


    The classic kush aroma of the strain is reflected in its strong skunky smell of pungent earth and pine accompanied by a tinge of floral and spicy notes, making its overall fragrance a delightful experience for veteran users.


    To complement its potent high and strong aroma, the strain offers its users with a delicious combination of skunky diesel coupled with hints of citrus, exotic spices, and sweet herbs. Cataract Kush’s strong flavors are especially pleasing for seasoned users who appreciate a classic kush taste.
