Platinum Kush Marijuana Strain
Platinum Kush Marijuana Strain is an indica-dominant strain that takes on a platinum-silver shade due to its thick coat of crystal resin. With purple hues and bright orange hairs, its buds grow dense with a sweet fruity and hashy aroma. Its buzz has been described as strongly cerebral and body-numbing.
Platinum Kush Marijuana Strain is an indica that derives its name from the platinum/silver sparkle its buds produce when harvest-ready due to the many trichome crystals that form. Underneath these crystals, one can find leaves with hints of violet and bright orange pistils. It has also been called Platinum OG Kush and Platinum OG.
Platinum Kush Experience
With THC levels in the 16-18% range, this isn’t a particularly psychoactive Indica. Its real allure lies in the CBD content, which hovers around 1%, much higher than the average strain available in North America.
Fans of a mellow, easy going high will enjoy the effects of Platinum Kush. Some may wish the high lasted a little longer, but the sedative and relaxing effects are enjoyable while they last.
Just a few minutes after consuming, marijuana fans will feel the body stone start to sink in. Muscles will relax and tensions float away after just a couple of hits.
Those marijuana consumers looking for an anxiety-free high would do well to check out Platinum Kush.
Traits of Platinum Kush and PK Seeds
One look at the frosty shimmer of these buds and marijuana enthusiasts will know why they call it Platinum. Vibrant orange pistils and purple streaks complete the picture as if these nugs needed any more shelf appeal.
These nugs give off a pungent, sweet fruit scent which is especially strong. Some elements of spice linger in the background, almost like freshly ground pepper.
That earthy sweetness is reflected in the flavor. Marijuana enthusiasts will immediately detect the OG Kush lineage of this strain, also finding flavors of berries and grapes, as well as a blast of piney freshness on the inhale. This is a pretty pungent strain when combusted, so those looking to remain private should consider themselves warned.
