Hybrid - 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 20%Kushashima, a Washington State original, came in No. 4 at the Los Angeles Cannabis Cup in 2014. It's an indica-dominant hybrid, but its exact parentage and sativa/indica ratio are unclear. This strain is quite potent, with THC levels measured above 20%. CBD levels are another story, though, rating no more than 0.5% in publicly available tests. That means patients shouldn't rely on Kushashima as the only source of marijuana treatment for seizure disorders such as epilepsy. This strain isn't terribly versatile as a medical tool; its only recommended use is as treatment for insomnia. That's because the indica body high is sleepy and spacey, perfect for nodding off late at night. Most strains are useful in treating anxiety and mood problems, and Kushashima may be good at that as well. This train has a pungent aroma of pine needles and wood, with a similar flavor. There are few widely reported side effects, but dry mouth, dry eyes, and paranoia are typically the most common. The bud is green with orange hairs. Look for this unique strain in the Pacific Northwest, but don't expect to find it elsewhere.
