The sedating high from this indica is perfect for a night of anxiety-free relaxation. Platinum Kush gets its name from its frosty appearance, a result of the dense trichomes that grow on the bud. THC levels vary, but are usually in the 16%-18% range. That makes this a moderately strong choice, though poor growing can lead to very low THC levels. An indica, Platinum Kush has more CBD than most strains available in America. This chemical is used to treat severe seizures and other conditions. The combination of THC and CBD makes this a good strain for anxiety, depression, and pain, as the body high is deeply relaxing. This strain has a sweet, pungent smell reminiscent of fruit and a sweet, earthy taste. Platinum Kush, aka Platinum OG Kush and Platinum OG, is probably the result of crossbreeding between Master Kush and an original Afghani strain. Platinum Kush produces a mellow, easy feeling; the high doesn’t last very long, but it’s usually enough to put an insomniac to sleep. Dry mouth and red eyes are the only likely adverse effects, though paranoia is also possible. Platinum Kush is most popular in Denver and the West Coast, but it’s harder to find in other parts of the country.
Rockstar, not to be confused with its cousin “Rockstar OG” strains, is a indica dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% sativa) strain created through a cross of the popular Rock Bud X Sensi Star strains. The Rockstar high is characterized by strong-hitting effects powered by a 14-19% average THC level without the sedation that typically comes with an indica parent. The Rockstar high starts with a cerebral head rush a few minutes after toking that leaves you uplifted and extremely happy with active tendencies and motivation. As this powerful head high builds, you’ll slowly feel a creeping body buzz wash over you that leaves you completely relaxed in every single muscle, leaving you helplessly couch-locked and in a state of pure bliss. Despite these powerful muscle-relaxing effects, Rockstar surprisingly won’t leave you sedated in the least bit. Because of these powerful effects, Rockstar is said to be perfect for treating chronic pain, muscle spasms or tremors, inflammation, and mild to moderate cases of depression. This bud has an aroma of spicy grapey earth with a hint of skunky pungent herbs and a taste of spiced mulled wine with a pungent slightly skunky exhale. Rockstar buds have medium-sized dense and lumpy dark olive green spade-shaped nugs with rich purple undertones, fiery orange hairs, and frosty trichome covered purple leaves.
