Rose Kush is the parent of several popular hybrids, but by itself it’s anything but common. Indeed, the THC content alone, topping 21% in some tests, is enough to set this sativa-dominant strain apart. That chemical intensity means a potent head high with limited cerebral effects; it’s clear-headed and energized, with a strong tingling sensation. This makes Rose Kush a good source of medication for migraine headaches, muscle spasms, physical pain, insomnia, and daily stress. CBD levels, meanwhile, are very low, less than 1%, and that’s too low to recommend this strain for patients who want to treat seizures or other medical problems that require CBD. Rose Kush smells like diesel fuel, with floral, sweet, and skunky notes, while the flavor is herbal and woody. This strain is coated in a thick layer of crystal trichomes, a promise of the potency that lies within. There’s little available data on adverse effects, but red eyes and cottonmouth are probably the most likely. This strain sells in limited parts of California, notably in San Diego, but elsewhere in America it’s fairly rare.
