Though not especially potent in terms of THC, Champagne Kush (aka Champagne) is an effective means of treating several medical conditions: chronic pain, depression, anxiety, loss of appetite, and nausea, among others. THC makes up no more than 15% of this strain in available tests. CBD content is much lower, less than 1%. In other words, this strain is not a good choice as a front-line treatment for epilepsy or other conditions that require that chemical. Champagne Kush is an even blend of sativa and indica (50:50 sativa/indica ratio), the offspring of Hash Plant, an indica-dominant strain, and the original Hindu Kush, an Afghani indica. The indica and sativa effects are balanced, creating a euphoric, tingling body buzz with increased sociability and happiness. This strain gets its name from its unique, champagne-like aroma and flavor, though there are additional notes of sweetness, flowers, and soil. The bud is bright green with long orange strands and a light frosting of crystals. Cottonmouth and bloodshot eyes are the only widely reported adverse effects, though dizziness, headaches, and paranoia are also possible. Champagne Kush is popular on the West Coast, in Arizona, and in New Mexico.
