Indica Dominant Hybrid – 60% Indica / 40% Sativa
THC: 15% – 22%
Gushers is a slightly indica dominant hybrid strain (60% indica/40% sativa) created through crossing the classic Gelato #41 X Triangle Kush strains. Named for the delicious candy, Gushers brings on the flavors with a combination of sour tropical fruits and rich creamy cookies in each and every toke.
The aroma follows the same profile, although with a slightly herbal overtone and touches of spicy grape. The Gushers high isn’t quite as bright as the flavor, with super relaxing effects that are best suited for lazy nights spent at home with friends catching up on Netflix.
The high starts with an influx of tingly euphoria that fills the back of the head with lightly arousing tingles. This quickly spreads throughout the rest of your body, leaving you pretty aroused and incredibly relaxed through and through. You won’t be sleepy in this state, but rather totally at ease with anything and everything happening around you.
With these effects and its high 15-22% average THC level, Gushers is said to be perfect for treating chronic stress or anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. This bud has elongated olive green nugs with bright green leaves, lots of thin amber hairs, and a coating of tiny amber crystal trichomes.
