About Melon Kush
Melon Kush is marked by large, chunky flowers that tend to maintain their shape when trimmed. These buds adhere in the relatively loose, loose structure usually associated with sativa varieties. The fluffy leaves, which can easily be torn away from their central stems, are a bright shade of yellowish green. These flowers are also filled with curly orange hairs (which are actually pistils, botanical structures meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants. Capping off the impressive buds is a thick blanket of trichomes that gives them a white sheen and a very sticky texture. Melon Kush’s flowers give off a fruity aroma that blends tart berries and grape.
While the strain has a watermelon scent, it’s not especially prominent and one may only detect it on a second or third inspection. Grinding up these buds yields some skunky notes, perhaps testifying to OG Kush in the strain’s lineage. When combusted, Watermelon burns with a smooth, fruity smoke that tastes like grape with some lingering sour traces on the exhale.
As with many predominantly indica strains, Melon Kush high has a slow onset. The effects may begin as a tingle around the eyes and forehead. The odd sensation transforms into a warm feeling, enveloping the entire body—a signal of the forthcoming physically relaxing experience.
Melon Kush is not without some mental stimulation, though. Although this is a heavy indica, it comes without the dopey, incapacitated mindset of some stronger, knockout indica strains. Smokers may experience free-flowing thoughts, finding certain concepts or stimuli unusually captivating.
Although Melon Kush is unlikely to facilitate any deep, cerebral thinking, it’s just the thing for creative brainstorming or for simple, idle daydreaming. While consumers typically remain lucid enough to carry on conversations, those with a busy schedule shouldn’t expect to accomplish any work under the influence of Melon Kush. This bud complements relaxing moments, ideal for unwinding with TV after a long day or week of work.
As the high passes or with an increased dosage, users should anticipate experiencing intractable couchlock. Under the right circumstances, the strain can even lull smokers into a deep, restful sleep. Due to its predominantly sedative vibes, it’s advisable to use this strain at night rather than during the day.
Melon Kush can also have several potential benefits for medical cannabis patients. Its physically soothing effects can treat aches and pains, whether they’re temporary or chronic. It may also soothe everyday irritations like headaches and nausea.
Meanwhile, the bud’s mood-elevating properties may temporarily take the edge off of mild to moderate cases of stress, depression, and anxiety. Finally, as noted, Watermelon can counteract insomnia with the force of its sedation. Because this strain is unlikely to trigger the kind of intense, recursive thinking that can lead to paranoia, it is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
