Keester Kush is a super rare strain by Kettle River Cannabis Co. (aka Hempire) out of Moses Lake, Washington. Its rich flavors and hearty effects make it one of those rarities that satisfies an array of users from concentrate lovers to flower purists. By crossing the infamous Ken's Kush and Skywalker OG, the breeders have created a high powered, yet smooth bud that has users wishing it could be found in more than just the rainy northern state it calls home.
The THC in Keester Kush varies from 16% to around 21% on average, making it a strong and heady high suitable for any user with a little experience under their belts. These dry, flaky buds give off a pungent odor that is rife with earthy, berry overtones. The flavors are very similar with berry notes that compliment the earthy and piney flavors that dance on your tongue long after the smoke has dissipated. The buds are small and olive toned with dark amber hairs and crystal white trichomes that are almost too small to really see.
This high is slow building, but not at all light. Keester Kush may take a while to actually hit the gas, but when it does, it really does. It builds from the back fo the head forward, relieving eye pressure and leaving you feeling tingly and a bit hazy. The tingles rush down your spine and into your limbs giving the user head to toe relaxation that ebbs and flows throughout the long lasting and centered high. Your mood will almost immediately lift, giving you a slight focus through the fogginess of the high. This is a good time to get creative projects started or finished because soon enough you'll be too relaxed to want to do much else.
For medicinal users, Keester Kush is most beneficial for those who struggle with pain in various forms. Some examples of this would be tension, muscle cramps, chronic pain, pain caused by injury, and headaches. This strain tends to be on the upbeat side, energetic and happy in most cases, so it is recommended for mood disorders such as depression, stress, and minor cases of bipolar, as well as mild fatigue. As for anxiety, some say that this is a great strain as it makes you spacey and relaxed, however, others say that in excess it exacerbated their symptoms.
Growing your own Keester Kush proves to be as difficult as it is finding it, so perhaps this is one strain that's best left to the experts.
Rare as it may be, if find yourself in the Kettle River area, you should definitely give this one a try. A perfect after dinner strain, Keester Kush offers a smooth calming effect paired with a generally easy-going vibe that is both slightly energetic and uplifting. Enjoy the buzzy effect as you seamlessly move from topic to topic whether it's in your own head or chatting with friends.
