Cannabis Corner: Jenny Kush
The popular hybrid strain of cannabis, Jenny Kush, is named in memory of a Colorado cannabis advocate, Jenny Monson, who died in 2013 when she was struck by a drunk driver. She was known in the marijuana activist community as Jenny Kush. The strain was created and grown by Rare Dankness Seeds. It was introduced and sold with all proceeds donated to the Jenny Kush Foundation, which was established to help support Monson’s children.
As popular as Monson was, the namesake strain of cannabis follows in popularity with many medicinal marijuana users. The hybrid strain has a nice balance between sativa and indica, and offers the benefits of both strains. The sweet earthy scent of the plant provides a dominant flavor of citrus with an underlying nutty taste. Bringing on relaxation with its indica parent, it is used for pain relief, anxiety reduction, stress management, controlling nausea and depression.
Along with the relaxing effects, Jenny Kush is also derived from the popular sativa strain, Amnesia Haze. This sativa side of Jenny Kush brings on a pleasant boost in mood and a feeling of happiness and mild euphoria. With its relaxing and uplifting effects, Jenny Kush is known as a whole-body medicine, which is being used for multiple illnesses and conditions. Because of its numerous benefits to the body, it’s a good strain for use throughout the day without feeling sluggish. The side effects are mild while using Jenny Kush. Dry mouth is the most predominant negative aspect, with dry eyes also being noted by some users.
One of the more popular strains, Jenny Kush can sometimes be difficult to find in dispensaries. A new supply has come into Tucson and can be found at Earth’s Healing Dispensary, conveniently located at 2075 E. Benson Hwy. and 78 W. River Rd. Connect at EarthsHealing.org. See ad, page 31.
Please keep in mind that the names of some of these strains, while appearing severe and possibly scary or offensive, are safe in every way.
