A somewhat mysterious strain, Guava Kush is found in Los Angeles and Oregon in the United States. It is a hybrid strain, slightly indica-dominant, with wide-ranging effects including a feeling of relaxation and creativity, sociability and sometimes even sleepiness. The overwhelming flavour is reminiscent of the guava fruit, with citrusy, sweet and tropical notes.
The bud of this strain has high levels of THC, in excess of 23%. The strain is good for treating anxiety, chronic pain and insomnia, however, it is said to be helpful for managing anorexia, arthritis and fatigue too. Guava Kush has a physical and cerebral high, though side effects include dry eyes and dry mouth. With negligible amounts of CBD (less than 1%), it is unsuitable for treatment of conditions such as epilepsy.
