Overview of Black Magic Kush

Just as the name suggests, Black Magic Kush is an enchanting strain that will lull you to sleep at the end of the day. Like most other indica strains, it will make you incredibly sleepy, so it's not the best option for a daytime smoke or daytime pain relief. However, if you want something fairly strong that will take away menstrual cramps, muscle spasms, joint pain, inflammation, anxiety, or insomnia, let this dazzling strain can take care of it all.

Black Magic Kush has a high terpene profile, with significant amounts of myrcene, limonene, beta caryophllene, and linalool (just to name a few). By far the highest presence terpene is myrcene, which is known for producing the "couch lock" that is common in most indica strains. It is also what reduces inflammation and provides analgesic properties to the plant. The linalool reduces anxiety similar to the way lavender plants do. Ultimately, you could say Black Magic Kush gets its magic from the terpenes!

Black Magic Kush has a mysterious lineage, with only one parent strain confirmed. It comes from Grape Ape, which is an equally amazing strain. Grape Ape looks and smells a whole lot like grape, and is also an indica that is recommended for nighttime use.

One toke of Grape Ape will send you into a mystical state of relaxation, and some say it even makes you feel as heavy as a big ol' ape. Medical cannabis patients use Grape Ape to treat serious, chronic pain and insomnia. It also induces appetite, which can be important in the healing process.
