Good for nausea, appetite loss, pain and sleeplessness.
We live in the age of legalized recreational marijuana. With the advancement of modern growing techniques and our vast knowledge of genetics, there are more strains of marijuana than imaginable. It is easy to be overwhelmed by all of the different available strains and it can be hard for medical patients to find a strain that is truly medicinal and provides symptom relief. If you are looking for true mmj in Canada, look no further than the very rare Chemo Kush. Chemo Kush is an Indica strain that was developed specifically for medicinal use over 30 years ago.
The Chemo Kush cannabis strain is a very rare, clone-only, original B.C. strain. This strain is a pure Indica. Also known as UBC Chemo, referring to its birthplace, the lineage of this strain can be directly traced back to researchers at the University of British Columbia where, in the late 60’s or early 70’s, it was developed by Dr. David Suzuki as a means to combat the effects of chemotherapy on cancer patients. The buds of this plant are sticky and dense and they are covered with tiny orange trichome hairs. The flowers have a pungent, earthy smell with hints of fragrant pine.
Known for its powerful medicinal effects, Chemo Kush Indica is good for combating a variety of ailments and is said to be the best for relieving pain, both physical and mental. Patients using Chemo Kush can expect relief from symptoms such as nausea, loss of appetite, chronic pain, anxiety and depression, and insomnia. Some effects of the Chemo Kush strain include cotton mouth, a feeling of euphoria and sleepiness.
Chemo Kush is a weed strain that can have a THC content of up to 29%. That being said, it is not for the inexperienced consumer. This is a great strain to smoke for pain relief or when you are ready to be glued to the couch with some munchies and nothing to do for the rest of the day.
Sample submitted: “Chemo Kush” dried cannabis flowers.
Visual Inspection: Free from visible contamination and foreign matter.
Moisture Content: 3.5%
Activated vs non-activated: activated cannabinoids are non-acidic (neutral) and are the form utilized by the human brain/ body. Activation occurs via heating (smoking, vaporizing, cooking). Cannabinoids in the natural plant are acidic (non-activated) and need to be converted to their neutral form in order to be utilized by the human body. Therefore one would expect fresh cannabis buds to contain mainly non-activated cannabinoids. Processed materials (baked goods, heated extracts) should be higher in the activated forms.
Absent Cannabinoids: if a cannabinoid or terpene is blank, it is not necessarily absent but below the limit of detection by the detector (usually less than 0.01%).
Cannabis Potency Summary Table:
Three tests of each sample were analysed and summarised below:
% by weight
THC-Acid (not activated)
*THC total (THC-Acid THC)
CBD-Acid (not activated)
*CBD total (CBD-Acid CBD)
CBG-Acid (not activated)
*CBG total (CBG-Acid CBG)
Activated Cannabinoid Total:
- when reporting totals, acidic cannabinoids are multiplied by 0.877 to account for loss of mass from decarboxylation upon heating (activating)
