Chem Valley Kush Strain is a mostly sativa hybrid with a strong, stinging aroma. Lest you be fooled by its name, this strain doesn’t have any roots in an actual place called Chem Valley — rather, it’s a cross between the popular strains Chemdawg and San Fernando Valley OG Kush. Created by breeders Cali Connection, Chem Valley Kush has a long-lasting high thanks to THC levels ranging from 18% to an impressive 30%.
Flowers of Chem Valley Kush Strain are on the smaller side, clinging together in popcorn-like spheres. Despite their sativa genetics, these rounded buds have a more indica-influenced structure, with a solid center composed of tightly-coiled leaves. The leaves themselves are a dark shade of forest green and are shot through with curly orange and bright red pistils. Finally, sticky, cloudy trichomes cover all visible nooks and crannies of these little nuggets, making them difficult to break up by hand.
Even as Chem Valley Kush’s high wears on, users tend to be unaffected by burdensome physical effects. While some smokers may feel a subtle relief from any muscular tension, for the most part, the strain’s energy persists and can be put to use with activities ranging from exercise to (given the right company, of course) sex. Chem Valley Kush’s wide-eyed properties can also be a fun way to enjoy a hike or a long walk outside. Thanks to its mostly buzzy effects, this strain is recommended for daytime consumption.
Chem Valley Kush’s stimulating vibes can also have several benefits for medical cannabis patients. Its strong propensity for concentration can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders, helping them to work on one task at a time. Its emotional boost may also temporarily soothe the difficult symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Physical benefits mostly center on the strain’s anti-inflammatory properties, which can take the sting out of everyday afflictions like headaches, nausea, and cramps. Because its palpable mindrace can be uncomfortable or disorienting in the wrong set and setting, Chem Valley Kush Strain is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia.
