The goal of the cross that made the Kandy Kush strain possible was to combine the flavor of OGs with the bud structure of the Trainwreck strain. Mother OG Kush brings medical benefits and a flavorful, pronounced terpene profile. Father Train Wreck brings high commercial yields, resin production and lemony scents. The sweetness of Kandy Kush is due to the female OG Kush and that’s where its name comes from.
Recommended for evening use, the Kandy Kush strain is most often prescribed to combat insomnia and induce relaxation. The strain’s Indica effects can relieve mild to severe chronic pain, and some find it useful for dealing with anxiety and mood disorders. The strain’s high begins with a powerful brain effect that almost instantly improves mood by producing dopamine. This euphoria is quickly followed by a heavy, lazy body high. Kandy Kush is an ideal strain for people with eating disorders and nausea, as it generally stimulates the appetite and makes you want to snack.

This strain can look very different depending on the specific phenotype. The shape can vary from more oblong like the Train Wreck to more circular like the OG; however, they are all dense – a characteristic of both parents. Given the sativa influence of Train Wreck, almost all phenotypes will have orange pistils, but the coverage density will vary. Kandy Kush produces a thick layer of resin, which gives the buds a “frosty” appearance.
