LA Kush is a heavy-duty Indica-driven Hybrid marijuana. Although it’s almost certainly descended from the prestigious OG Kush, its exact genetics are unclear. Don’t let that stop you, though: this weed is popular among enthusiasts, specifically for the way it somehow produces a classically heavy Kush body high without being overly drowsy. At 19-26% THC, it’s got some great medicinal weed potential, as well as being a solid recreational choice for a lazy afternoon.
There are just so many Kush-based marijuana strains in the weed world that, at some point, the enthusiast has to ask, “why this one?”
Well, in the case of Indica-dominant Hybrid LA Kush, there’s actually a compelling reason: it offers that lulling Kush body high but won’t immediately knock you out, unlike many of its cousins, thanks to a slight Sativa influence. It’s also got suitably respectable power, at 19-26% THC.
Enthusiasts who are enjoying this marijuana will notice that it comes on fairly slowly, exuding a warmth that gradually encompasses the whole body. The feeling is tingly and faintly narcotic. This weed will slowly melt and dissolve pain, nausea, and stress, leaving behind a tranquil, floaty state of mind.
However, this state is not completely sedative. Instead, it offers a pleasant focus: it’s a slow, quiet burn. Of course, it can still cause a profound sleep. However, this plant is not heavy-hitting like many other indicas.
There’s one super confusing thing about this marijuana, though: it’s totally different from the similarly-named OG Los Angeles Kush. Weird, right?

It almost smells like cannabis chewing gum, or like a cannabis-based cleaning product. The weed’s smoke is refreshing and surprisingly smooth.
A breath of fresh air, or in this case, a breath of LA Kush will have you immersed in the strains appetizingly peppermint and pine flavor profiles. Powerful yet enjoyable with its aroma, the sour and earthy aromas combine to remind you of the great outdoors.
