More about the Cali Kush Strain

The Cali Kush (or California Kush) interestingly does not come from California. Despite the name, there are two strains which take on this name; one from Sumo Seeds (Netherlands) and Anesia Seeds (Spain). 

Sumo Seeds have famously crossed Mendocino Purps and LA Confidential to produce what we now know as Cali Kush. Anesia Seeds have crossed Strawberry and the legendary OG Kush. It is confusing, but thats cannabis for you. 


What does Zkittlez look Like? 

The Cali Kush produced by Sumo Seeds can be identified by its pale green leaves which are often tinted with blue and purples which are caused by cold cultivation and its Mendocino Purps genes. The buds are dense and tightly packed as you’d expect from any dominant indica strain. 

In contrast, the Anesia Seeds strain has a large bud with a tight structure but fluffy leaves. They are a very light-green (almost yellow) with rusty pistils. 



Aroma & Flavours

Both of the strains have a very similar flavour profile which is complex and addictive. The Sumo Cali Kush has strong floral notes with a fresh herby flavour (like mint, oregano or thyme). The smoke is really smooth which makes it ideal for a more high end joint (like a cannagar) and has a nice fruity aftertaste which custs through the hashy undertones. 

The Anesia california Kush is much more citrusy and has a deeper, funkier hash undertone that you come to expect from a Kush. The smoke is smooth but much more peppery and complex. We think that both are equally delicious but for different reasons. 


Cured flowers of this Cali Kush have mostly floral, herbal scents with some hints of mint. Smoke is smooth and has a fruity aftertaste.

This strain’s aroma is predominantly of citrus, with a sweet and somewhat dank base. When it is broken up or ground, some more peppery, Kush-like notes might be evident. This Cali Kush burns with a smooth smoke and when exhaled leaves behind a skunky and overall tropical impression.



The California Kush High!

While the strain is a dominant indica, there is certainly some really nice cerebral effects that are associated with the high of this strain. While some Indicas make the user feel drowsy and groggy, but the cali kush gives the user an instant feeling of sharpness. The initial feeling is thoughtfulness where colours seem brighter. This is quickly followed by a slow physical relaxation which brings the head high back down to a deep relaxation. It makes the strain a perfect strain for chatting with friends or being in a relaxed social setting. 

This strain has a well-rounded high despite its entirely indica genetics. Users may have initial feelings of thoughtfulness and sharpened perception. Instead of disorienting cerebral mindrace, though, smokers will experience a progressive physical relaxation to ground their thoughtfulness and bring them back down to earth. Cali Kush can serve as an accompaniment to socializing in familiar surroundings or unwinding alone.
