Aphria is in the process of releasing a few new high THC strains and for my Kusawa is the first of the bunch! Kusawa is a sativa dominant strain that is said to be good for depression, fatigue and appetite. I am normally not a sativa guy but since I have a few indcas kicking around to counteract any sativa rushiness with I’ll give Kusawa a spin.
Like most Aphria products, while well grown, Kusawa is unforgivably dry. At this point in the grow game, there should be no excuse for sending out such a bone dry product. It is such a shame because the marijuana itself is so good and then they just dry it until it crumbles to a powder. I’m really sorry to go off like that but it needed to be said.
On to the positives…. like I said above, very well grown! The trichomes looked great under magnification, bud formation was tight and the flavour quite good! When I vaped it up, the Kusawa started off with very minimal plumes but they grew over the session as the temperature went up. And the effects, while a little rushy (ahem, sativa) were quite nice.
For the most part, a good experience!
