The unusually named Cannalope Strain by DNA Genetics is a 70/30 Sativa-dominant hybrid strain. Being a cross between OG Kush #18 and Cannalope Haze — a crossbreed of a Mexican landrace strain with the Original Haze — the strain brings about the sativa-drive euphoria with the supplementary influence of its indica genetics as well. Northern Californians often refer to Cannalope as “Momma Kush”
Cannalope Kush has a nice bag appeal, with light green nuggets that are generously covered and frosted with orange hairs throughout the whole structure. Despite being a sativa-dominant hybrid, the Cannalope Kush strain comes with compact buds that are embraced by light green leaves.
As for the THC content of Cannalope Kush, it varies between 16.5% and 22%, which is slightly higher than an average sativa. Still, this strain offers a balanced high with a stimulating cerebral euphoria and creativity boost accompanied by the elevated mood and casual relaxation.
Cannalope Kush is invaluable for the times when you experience anxiety due to imminent danger. While the mental high is similar to the adrenaline rush you feel at that time, your muscles are completely tension-free thanks to the indica side of the strain.
This mental high stabilizes once the physical high sets in, so instead of going out of control, users remain elevated and relaxed without psychotic behavior.
The fragrance of Cannalope Kush is a unique mix of fresh-cut cantaloupe with hints of haze, which brings up the aroma of a delicate perfume. Upon exhale, the smoke tastes a bit woody, with noticeable fruit vibes indicative of berries. According to many users, this strain is both crisp and refreshing.
One of the reasons that make Cannalope Kush appealing to medical marijuana users in the range of conditions this strain can alleviate. Of course, stress relief is the telltale reason why people turn to its general buds; but on top of that, the sedative properties if its Indica nature can also help relieve pain, menstrual cramps, headaches and migraines, insomnia, and more.
If we were to point out one negative reaction to using Cannalope Kush, it would be dry mouth. When using this strain, hydrate yourself well beforehand and keep some drinks at hand. If you have orange juice or lemonade in the fridge, then you’re in the safe spot.
In some instances, the dry mouth may be accompanied by dry and red eyes, especially if you smoke too much of Cannalope Kush.
Other than that, some people may experience dizziness or confusion, but this happens mostly when the strain is used in large quantities. Finally, you can get a bit anxious, but if you keep the dosage in moderation, this won’t be your concern.
