Apricot Kush Balanced Hybrid Cannabis Strain Information
Apricot Kush balanced hybrid cannabis strain is a delicious house-made cannabis cross-strain. Designed for and grown in outdoor greenhouses, this sun-grown Hybrid strain grows big thick buds. It has a sweet, ripened apricot, skunk and diesel aroma. This balanced Hybrid (50% Indica / 50% Sativa) demonstrates largely Sativa-dominant characteristics. With a slightly lower cannabinoid range of 12-18%, Apricot Kush can be a sweet, stone-fruit flavoured alternative to heavier Kush’s. It is ideal for novices or those more partial to indica-dominant cannabis strains. This sweet, deliciously scented bud delivers an immediate head-high. The cerebral effects are elevating and introspective, engaging creativity. Similarly, Indica lovers seeking daytime smoke for increased stimulation and focus will appreciate the Apricot Kush balanced hybrid’s body relaxation.
Apricot Kush Cannabis buds are large and fluffy. These bright green buds are covered in super-fine red hairs and decorated with dark green to light purple leaves. The buds are quite resinous and sticky to the touch. We highly recommend using a grinder for your Apricot Kush. The trichomes that cover the buds are easily lost using other methods. Breaking apart these fluffy buds releases earthy aromas followed by sweet stone fruit and light gas.
Effects of Apricot Kush Balanced Hybrid
Cannabinoid Range: up to 18% THC
The effect of Apricot Kush Balanced Hybrid fell somewhere between calm and energized, floating and focused. Apricot Kush strikes an almost perfect balance between indica and Sativa-heavy phenotypes. However, this cannabis strain resonates heavily with Sativa-lovers, and for a good reason. For instance, experienced Sativa smokers will find Apricot Kush is an easy-going, daytime smoke that’s ideal for a gentle wake and bake.
While the onset is almost immediate, the buzz builds gradually. Apricot Kush energizes the mind and slowly softens and dissolves into a full-body calm. Once the cerebral effects have taken hold, a wave of relaxation slowly rolls from the head to the feet. This non-sedating body relaxing effect helps to treat inflammatory issues like arthritis and headaches. Similarly, it provides relief for an array of other health problems. It is perfect if you’re looking for a unique tasting bud to propel you through a busy day happily. Above all, Apricot Kush will put a little bounce in your step.

What is a Hybrid Strain?
A Hybrid strain refers to any combination of Sativa or Indica Strains. These strains offer more balanced Cannabis effects. Additionally, they make it much easier for Cannabis users to customize their experience. As a result, they appeal to a much wider spectrum of Cannabis users. By combining the invigorating and energizing effects of a Sativa with the pain-relieving and muscle-relaxing effects of an Indica, these strains offer the best of both worlds.
The Science of it all
Although mother nature has done most of the work for us, modern-day strains are mostly a design project. The cross-breeding of any plant species involves the same basic processes, and Cannabis is no exception. To crossbreed plant strains, female plants must receive pollen from their male counterparts. However, out in the wild, this happens naturally, usually only between the same strains of Cannabis.
In creating new and exciting Hybrids, growers carefully select their cross strains and breed them in a controlled environment. They can dictate which traits from each strain will end up combined in the final product. The seeds from these plants will then become First Generation Hybrids. These new plants will then be bred over and over again to help increase these desired traits.
Choosing a Hybrid Strain
Indica dominant, Sativa dominant or true Hybrid, there are unlimited possibilities and combinations to chose from. So how are you supposed to know which strain is right for you? Consider what you’re using Cannabis for.
If you need pain relief but aren’t looking for heavy sedation, Sativa dominant Hybrids might be right for you. If you’re looking to relax without the added psychoactive effects, try using an Indica dominant strain. It is important to remember that not all strains affect all users the same way.
When choosing a Hybrid strain, look for the balance that is right for your individual Cannabis needs. We always recommend that you start low and go slow. In other words, start with a small dosage and increase slowly as needed until you find the balance that is right for your needs.
