Chemo Kush stretches back to the 1970s in Canada where this heavy indica was allegedly developed to treat the side effects of chemotherapy. Chemo’s genetics is best known for its potent medicinal effects perfect for patients treating nausea, appetite loss, pain, and sleeplessness.
Chemo kush, also known more commonly as “UBC Chemo” to cannabis users, is a 100% pure indica hybrid with unknown genetics that was bred specifically to treat patients going through chemo treatments. This powerful bud offers extremely potent heavy indica effects characterized by a high level of pain relief in both mind and body. The high is definitely considered to be a creeper – you’ll suddenly be hit with a heavy feeling behind your eyes and in the back of your neck before falling into a complete sedative stupor with potent couch-lock and a strong case of the munchies. Because of these strong effects and its insane THC level that averages between 18-21%, Chemo is ideal for treating patients suffering from nausea, depression, insomnia, nightmares, and chronic pain due to chemo, cancer, and other conditions. These nugs have an aroma of fragrant pungent earthy pine and a taste of sweet floral pine that becomes pungent and harsh upon exhale. Chemo buds have dark purple spade-shaped rock hard resinous nugs that are covered in dark rich orange curly hairs. Each nug is caked with a layer of thick chunky white crystal trichomes and a fine layer of sticky sweet resin.
UBC Chemo of the clone only kind is said to look a little different from other strains, having an almost bonsai look to the plant as the leaves are often too large and wide. While the strain grows relatively easy both indoor and outdoor, the odd shape of the plant makes it harder to use in techniques like Sea of Green. Requiring about eleven weeks to finish flowering, UBC Chemo reportedly has large yields that have a THC count of up to 29 percent.
