John Muir, while discussing the redwood forests of Northern California, remarked, “Going to the woods is going home.” The comforting, warming high of Redwood Kush is reminiscent of sitting by a campfire, surrounded by friends and the company of looming sugar pines. Cozy and satisfying, there is something familiar about this strain, like it’s taking you home.
While I wouldn’t classify these nuggets as popcorn, they are small, bite sized buds. Redwood Kush would be a deep forest green color if it weren’t absolutely drowning in pale amber trichromes. The buds look like a pair of dirty khakis after being worked into Sequoia National Forest for a hike. The aroma continues this theme. Much of the scent is pepper tree and cedar. However, the scent is so sweet in its woodiness, that there is even some over-ripe berry and musky earth, turning it sour in the end. I was pleased by how this indica smoked. It wasn’t harsh at all, and it had fine moments when it was like balsam or sandalwood incense. Everything about the aesthetic side of this weed reminded me of northern California.
The high of Redwood Kush is noticeably indica, meaning it exists mostly in the body. I prefer the cerebral effects of sativas and sativa hybrids, and don’t often donate for pure indicas. However, Redwood is a breezy body high that is perfect for minor aches and pains. It helped ease my arthritis and shoulder pain considerably, but did little for a migraine I came down with one night. I also enjoyed this strain because there is no couch lock, no laziness, and no drowsy yawning. This was the most dynamic indica I’ve smoked, since coming to Southern California, and it is perfect as a sunny daytime medication.
