The sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain dubbed Guava Kush is a strain that competed in the 2014 L.A. Cannabis Cup. Its scent and taste are reminiscent of its name, being quite tropical and sweet. When harvest-ready, its buds are a faded mossy green due to the plethora of trichomes it harbors while having sparse vivid orange pistils.
THC levels average at around 21%, though this number can change depending on a crop's cultivation methods. Its high has been described by reviewers as allowing relaxation into the body for nearly any given situation, while sparking creativity that can be transformed into intriguing conversation.
A warm/tingling sensation may spread throughout the body while it relaxes as some have experienced, and both chronic pain and insomnia have been treated using this strain. For others, sleep was possible as the high wore down.
Negative side-effects that reviewers have noted include cottonmouth, dry eyes, and occasionally paranoia when consuming above tolerance levels.
