Katsu Kush, or just Katsu, is an indica cannabis strain that descends from the hardy Hindu Kushlandraces. This indica is named after the original breeder’s alias, and has garnered a reputation for its powerful, full-body effects that leave you blissfully stuck to the couch. Some phenotypes of Katsu Kush exhibit higher levels of CBD, so patients treating pain, inflammation, and anxiety should keep an eye out for this type. With a sweet earthy flavor, Katsu Kush offers a solution for stressful days and sleepless nights.
“One of my favorite strains, an Indica done right in AZ, I've seen rich purple hues and plenty of resin on their buds. I have always loved the sweet earthy scent of it, no doubt high in myrcene. I also know that in addition to high THC and strong showings of CBD, Katsu is naturally higher in CBN, prior to oxidation. A perfect strain for evenings and nights to relax the mind and sedate the body.”
“Highly recommended to anyone with a chronic illness suffering from insomnia. Also acts as an antispasmodic, working from inside to help knock you out and keep you down. Make sure to be ready for sleep before consuming this strain. Worth seeking out for any fellow MSer. Sleep well!”
