This weed burns with a skunky, earthy smell and the flavor is smooth and sweetish, with notes of pine, berries and citrus. The effects come on quickly after inhaling, and start with a heavy body hit that then gives way to a relaxing, almost narcotic high that can last for two hours and more. This is a powerful weed and more than a couple of hits often lead to couchlock. Medical dispensaries prescribe it for nausea, stress and insomnia.
Platinum Kush strain grows to a height of around one meter and it’s a bushy strain with shortish leaves that become quite dark as the plant matures. The medium-sized buds are dense and are covered in a sparkling layer of crystals and also have orange to brown hairs.

The sedating high from this indica is perfect for a night of anxiety-free relaxation. Platinum Kush gets its name from its frosty appearance, a result of the dense trichomes that grow on the bud. THC levels vary, but are usually in the 16%-18% range. That makes this a moderately strong choice, though poor growing can lead to very low THC levels. An indica, Platinum Kush has more CBD than most strains available in America. This chemical is used to treat severe seizures and other conditions. The combination of THC and CBD makes this a good strain for anxiety, depression, and pain, as the body high is deeply relaxing. This strain has a sweet, pungent smell reminiscent of fruit and a sweet, earthy taste. Platinum Kush, aka Platinum OG Kush and Platinum OG, is probably the result of crossbreeding between Master Kush and an original Afghani strain. Platinum Kush produces a mellow, easy feeling; the high doesn’t last very long, but it’s usually enough to put an insomniac to sleep. Dry mouth and red eyes are the only likely adverse effects, though paranoia is also possible. Platinum Kush is most popular in Denver and the West Coast, but it’s harder to find in other parts of the country.
