Why such a bizarre name? it’s easy really – a few hits of Cataract Kush and you’ll be left feeling like your own eyes aren’t working properly. It’ll wear off soon enough of course so there’s no need to panic – it’s actually a pretty enjoyable experience.
With Cataract Kush, it’s all about potency. The maniacs that engineered it brought together LA Confidential and OG Kush, creating a leviathan that’s crossing eyes on both sides of the Atlantic. On the nose, Cataract Kush has a fruity fragrance with a strong overtone of spicy hash. As for the flavour profile, it has a herbal quality that blends with exotic sandalwood and spice.
Unless you’re a pretty hardcore toker, it’s largely inevitable that Cataract Kush will send you into deep couchlock. The smoke is extremely potent, though doesn’t hit quite as fast as you might expect. Instead, it has a habit of creeping up on you and taking you by surprise…which can be fun! In medical cannabis circles, Cataract Kush is routinely turned to for treating insomnia, muscular pain and poor appetite.
Growing Cataract Kush
Along with delivering the goods when smoked, Cataract Kush is also great for home growing. It’s an extremely tolerant strain, making it perfect for growing outdoors in cooler climates like the UK. Producing short, bushy and generous-yielding plants, it’s also perfect for growing indoors. If you give it all it needs for the whole growth cycle, you’ll be looking at around 400g for every square metre and THC concentrations as high as 17%-20%. It also has a nice and short flowering time of around 8 weeks.
Definitely a recommended strain for newcomers to growing, along with those that aren’t exactly reliable when it comes to providing optimum growing conditions. Just be sure to approach Cataract Kush for the first time with care – it’s guaranteed to send your eyes swiveling!
