Platinum Kush is a premium, first-rate indica cannabis strain. This striking strain is the product of a cross between OG Kush and Afghani. Also commonly known as “Platinum Kush OG”, the strain has a uniquely colourful bud and an amazing, relaxing high. With a nice THC content of around 20%, this quality strain can easily be enjoyed by both recreational and medicinal users.
Appearance, Aroma, and Flavour
Platinum Kush’s aroma and flavour is a mixture between sweet and skunky. The flavour tends to first have a sweet, fruity taste before turning into a skunky, bold flavour upon exhale. The aroma is similar, although the lingering smell is primarily the classic skunky cannabis scent. The appearance of the bud certainly fits in with its name in that the medium-sized light green buds have an almost metallic appearance from their heavy coating of pure white crystal trichomes.
Effects and Medical Uses
Platinum Kush is notorious for its slow onset high. The high typically begins in the head with a heaviness that slowly seeps into the rest of the body. Relaxation is the primary effect, along with a spaciness that inspires creativity and even focus. Medical marijuana users often use Platinum Kush as a treatment for chronic pain, difficulties with focus, anxiety, and depression.
