Quantum Kush is an incredibly famous Sativa-leaning hybrid known for its incredibly high THC concentration. For much of modern cannabis history, Quantum Kush was known as and heralded as the strongest strain of modern cannabis. This is because the strain contains an incredibly high THC concentration which consistently tops out at near 30%. Today, that number is a bit consistent with a lot of top-shelf flower, but it is by no means the highest THC concentration in a professionally grown strain.
The original breeder of this strain is up for debate, with some accrediting its invention to Homegrown Natural Wonders, and others suggesting that TCA Subcool Seeds first grew the strain. Regardless of who the first breeder was, both camps agree that the strain is a cross between Sweet Irish Kush and Trainwreck. Quantum Kush is a daytime strain, as its effects are incredibly stimulating and not suited for the evening hours.
Quantum Kush nugs are medium-sized, dense, olive-green balls of chronic. These flowers smell quite strong, and are a bit offensive to the nose of unsuspecting passersby. Expect a skunky, earthy scent that grows stronger as the buds are broken and ground up. The flavors inherited by this strain’s parents are quite prominent in its flavor profile, as both the inhale and exhale will have you tasting a mix between skunky kush, tropical fruits, and a bit of musty earth.
To both the eyes and to touch, Quantum Kush nugs are quite Indica in nature. However, the majority of the effects could not be farther from Indica. In fact, Quantum Kush is often recommended by budtenders to those looking for the ultimate Sativa high. The high begins by launching your mood through the stratosphere out into the vast reaches of infinity and beyond. While your mind feels like its traveling at faster-than-light speeds, your body will be slightly relaxed and calmed down. Some will lose their focus on this journey, and will experience a spacey, heady, cerebral high. Others will become quite focused on whichever task they wish to accomplish and pursue it until its completion.
The slight bit of Indica in this strain helps users stay grounded during their head high, and keeps them from spiraling into recursive thinking. This strain has been utilized by recreational tokers looking for an insane high in addition to medical patients looking for symptom relief. Most commonly, the strain is recommended for those who suffer from stress, depression, pain, headaches, and physical ailments like arthritis.
