Strain Review: Caramel Candy Kush

A Sweet and Sticky Strain


Finding a strain to medicate with that has a near perfect balance of THC and CBD can be difficult – but if you’re lucky enough to come across Caramel Candy Kush, you should jump on the opportunity to try it. This strain is an indica dominant hybrid whose parentage looks back to the pre- 1998 Bubba Kush clone (the indica) and Ms. Universe #10 (a sativa dominant hybrid).

There are two phenotypes of this strain floating around – the Bubba clone dominant, which leans more on the potent indica side and the Ms. Universe dominant, which leans a little more towards the sativa side, though still with many dominant indica traits.

What You Should Expect

As mentioned, this is a medicine that works great for people looking for a fair balance of THC and CBD – the THC content of this strain is generally higher, around 19-22% on average it seems. The balance is first noticed when you take a look at the buds themselves as they boast the compact density of an indica strain with the resinous crystal coating of a sativa (which makes this a great strain for producing hash and other concentrates).

The colors of the buds is quite a sight as well, with generally a darker forest green shade with orange hairs and purple leaves. The effects are described as instant pain and anxiety relief – thanks to the heavy hitting Bubba Kush clone no doubt. That, mixed with the longer lasting sativa body and mind euphoria, leave you with an all-day (or at least a couple of hours) medication that relieves a multitude of symptoms.  

The aroma of this strain is on the fruity and sweet side – with a hint of coffee and spices as well. This is a rather tasteful strain, leaving a sweet taste that lingers. The smoke from this strain is described as slightly harsh – which means for some individuals it may be better vaped than smoked.

Medical Benefits of Caramel Candy Kush

Due to the indica nature of this strain, it is most often used to medicate for pain among a wide variety of diseases and conditions including R.A., fibromyalgia, and more. It is also commonly used to medicate for depression and anxiety disorders due to the instant relaxing effect and the long-lasting nature of the strain. This strain is best used for medicating during the evening since it is such a heavy high that sets in almost instantaneously when smoked.

For those looking to grow their own, this strain doesn’t grow terribly tall from the sound of it, making it a good option for any living situation. The plants generally flower in 8-9 weeks, and even as little as 7 weeks on occasion. Caramel Candy Kush can be grown indoors and outdoors depending on what works best for you. If you choose to grow this strain, keep the flowers and stalks to harvest the crystals for kief or hash!
