Triangle Kush is an indica dominant hybrid strain (85% indica/15% sativa) strain that is believed to originate from the classic OG Kush. The “tri” in the name comes from the three marijuana capitals of Florida – Tampa, Jacksonville, and Miami where this strain was originally created.
Triangle Kush is an indica leaning cannabis strain with 85% indica and a mere 15% sativa. What this means is that this is the kind of strain that will “weigh heavily” on your body. In cannabis language it is referred to as a strain that causes a couch-lock effect. It is a powerful THC strain with an average of 20% THC. While super potent THC strains usually have as much as 30%, this strain produces equally powerful psychoactive effects.
The high produced by Triangle Kush hits you first with an uplifted rush of energy that starts from behind the eyes and slowly fills up your whole mind. A relaxing body high follows and washes over you in warming waves and causes you to feel like you are floating on air. This makes Triangle Kush an ideal strain for those suffering from conditions such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue, insomnia, and muscle spasms.
Triangle Kush is a sweet smelling strain with a spicy lemon citrus flavor with a woody aftertaste. The buds have a forest green color with long thin dark orange pistils and a coating of sugary white crystals.
The origins of this strain are believed to be somewhere in Florida; Tampa, Jacksonville, and Miami to be precise. It is also believed to originate from the classic OG Kush strain.
