Bred by Barney’s Farm, 8 Ball Kush is a pure indica variety descended from an Afghani landrace strain. Like many other cannabis varieties that come from the Hindu Kush region, this bud produces large amounts of crystal resin that blanket the buds. Its aroma is earthy and spicy, and you may find its effects to be more cerebrally stimulating than the average indica.
When it comes to the high, it is best described as mellow and blissful. The euphoric rush hits almost immediately and is uncharacteristically cerebral for an indica. This phase stimulates the creative energy and happy flightiness of the high and will have you feeling excited and happy. The body high sets in a few minutes later and is utterly relaxing, bordering therapeutic. Thankfully, users can enjoy this sedative state without the unwanted side effect of lost functionality.
The soothing and sedative properties of 8 Ball Kush make it a top choice for chronic pain due to injury or illness, inflammation, or muscle spasms. Expect a surge in energy and an uptick in mood which is useful for cases of mild depression and mild to moderate stress.
