Cotton Candy, also known as “Cotton Candy Kush”, is a hybrid marijuana strain made by crossing Lavender with Power Plant.
This Cotton Candy Kush’s bag appeal is immediately apparent: it boasts large buds that hold long, tapered shapes. The buds have a textbook sativa structure, with loose, fluffy leaves that can tear easily from their central stems, their texture is not unlike the wispy spun sugar of cotton candy itself.
Leaves are forest green and are shot through with pollen-collecting pistils that begin as small white hairs that turn pink as plants mature. Crystalline trichomes give the flowers a very sticky texture, again underscoring the strain’s similarity to carnival-bought cotton candy. When cured, these flowers smell sweet and fruity, almost bordering on saccharine. Floral and citrus notes hang out underneath.
The smell and flavor are reminiscent of cotton candy, with sweet, fruity notes and hints of other kinds of candy. Cotton Candy effects are euphoric and have relaxing powers that keep stress and pain to a minimum. Medical marijuana patients choose this strain to help manage chronic pain.
