Cotton Candy is a high-yielding and potent hybrid. THC levels often exceed 20%, making this strain great for pain and stress-related conditions. You'll recognize Cotton Candy by its sweet candy-like aroma.

Cotton Candy Kush (Cotton Candy) is a well-balanced cross between Lavender and Power Plant. Named for its fluffy buds and sweet, fruity aroma, this strain is perfect for a warm summer day. Expect a calm, relaxed body high with some classic sativa uplift. Close to harvest time, Cotton Candy's buds will begin to show some distinct lavender hues. Though Cotton Candy may seem innocent, this strain packs some THC. It's not uncommon for levels to exceed 20%, meaning that new users should be careful. Patients tend to like this strain for pain, nausea, and stress. Migraine sufferers also tend to find relief with Cotton Candy. A less common variation of this strain comes from Vancouver, BC. This less popular version is an indica-dominant cross between Afghani and Blueberry strains. Similar to the traditional Cotton Candy, the Vancouver version has a distinct sweet berry aroma.
