Peppermint Kush Genetics
Barney’s Farm created Peppermint Kush by crossing Dutch coffeeshop favourite Stella Blue with a heavy-hitting Nepal Kush. This combination of Stella Blue’s blueberry flavours with sturdy Nepali genetics is what makes Peppermint Kush the aromatic, high-yielding strain it is.
Peppermint Kush Terpene Profile
The presence of myrcene can be detected in the herbal aroma offered up by most Kush strains. Complimented by peppery caryophyllene, Peppermint Kush has a robustly earthy, spicy aroma, which is mellowed out by a minty and berry undertone. While it might not have the vintage lemon kick of many other Kush strains, the earthy, minty flavours are uniquely refreshing.
Peppermint Kush Effects
A potent hybrid of two great indica plants, Peppermint Kush’s high THC content of 22% ensures impressively powerful effects. This strain brings a deeply relaxed feeling that is accompanied by a fast-hitting cerebral high. Indica-enthusiasts will appreciate this typically heavy body-stoned feeling and euphoric state of mind.
Peppermint Kush Medical Benefits
This strain may be recommended for medical patients who are seeking relief from inflammation, due to her high CBD levels. With Peppermint Kush you can expect a soothing and therapeutic effect which could help with muscle spasms and posture pains. Peppermint Kush is also a good aid for sleep which can help with resting and restore sleeping patterns.
How to Grow Peppermint Kush
As expected from an indica, Peppermint Kush feminised seeds will only reach a short height. The plant grows uniformly making it most suitable for Sea of Green and SCROG methods. Typically producing large, dense flowers, its heavy side branches are likely to require extra support. Meanwhile, its resistance to mould and disease means it can perform very well outdoors. Peppermint Kush has a short flowering time of around 8 weeks.
