THC: 16% – 24% CBD: <1% CBN: <0.1%
Mango and marijuana go together. The fruit is known to enhance the high for many people, and some cannabis strains are bred to evoke the fruit. The taste of Mango Kush, not surprisingly, is similar to mangos and Kush, with notes of pine. It smells of the tropics, sweet mangos, and bananas. THC can make up as much as 16% of this strain, while CBD is much lower, about 0.3%. That makes this a poor choice for treating conditions that respond to CBD, such as severe seizure disorders. Mango Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid (35:65 sativa/indica ratio) that can be used to treat nausea and vomiting, pain, insomnia, lack of appetite, and depression. The high is centered on the body, with deep relaxation, strong euphoria, and a general sedated feeling. Many patients find themselves talking and giggling more than usual while high on this strain. Dry mouth is a common concern, as are bloodshot eyes, but most other adverse effects are limited. While it’s most popular on the West Coast, Mango Kush can also be found on the legal medical markets in Arizona and Michigan.
The exact origins of Mango Kush are shrouded in mystery, though online sources believe the cultivar to be a combination of Mango, a strain by KC Brains, and the infamous Hindu Kush.
Regardless of its lineage, Mango Kush is loved by consumers for its strong tropical flavors and body effects, most likely due to its high levels of myrcene.
