Hybrid - 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 17%This potent indica-dominant hybrid (sativa/indica ratio unclear) descends from Afghani Kush ancestors, though its exact parentage isn't widely known. It's not easy to find, but it's a very popular choice among those who have tried it. THC levels are quite high, topping 17% in at least one test. But CBD levels are low at best, so this strain shouldn't be used as the only form of medication for seizures or other conditions that require CBD. This strain has at least one good medical use, as a treatment for physical pain, but it may also be helpful with anxiety and other conditions. Despite the dominant indica genes, NY Kush delivers a focused, energized, and largely cerebral high. This makes it a good anytime-of-day selection. There are few reports of negative effects, but users can probably expect dry mouth and red eyes. The buds are light green with orange hairs, and the aroma is smooth, sweet, and pungent. As its name suggests, NY Kush is probably most popular on the East Coast black market, though it can also be found in California.
