About Sour Patch Kush
For some, “sour patch” may conjure images of the tart, sticky candy — but it also figures into the name of a powerhouse cannabis strain. Sour Patch Kush happy stick is a cross between Sour Kush and Exotic Genetic’s sweet, biscuity Kimbo Kush. It was developed by Elev8 Seeds, the same breeders who have stabilized popular strains like Gorilla Cookies. This happy stick flavor offers a balanced (but slightly sativa-dominant) high alongside a funky berry taste. Its potency has been measured at between 21% and a whopping 31% THC.
Sour Patch Kush happy stick cart is marked by medium-sized flowers that hold the relatively loose, fluffy bud structure often associated with sativa varieties. The small and wispy leaves are a bright shade of lime green and are threaded through with pale brown and yellow hairs (which are actually pistils, meant to catch pollen from would-be fertilizing male plants). Translucent, milky-white trichomes cover the buds, giving them a silver sheen and making them very difficult to break up by hand.
When properly cured, flowers of Sour Patch Kush give off the tangy aroma of fresh blueberries. Mixed with this burst of fruit is the mellow odor of pine and soil. A close inspection will also reveal some citrus sweetness, courtesy of Kimbo Kush. Breaking up or grinding the fluffy nugs yields the chemical stench of gasoline. When combusted, Sour Patch Kiss gives off a harsh, acrid smoke that can sting sinuses and cause eyes to water. On the exhale, this strain has the mouth-puckering taste of diesel fumes, leaving just a hint of sweet berry. This can be a pungent smoke; those looking to keep their toking discreet should take the necessary precautions.
