Raspberry, also known as “Raspberry Kush” to most of the cannabis community, is an indica dominant hybrid (75% indica/25% sativa) strain created through crossing the infamous Hindu Kush with an unknown strain, although it is thought to be either Raspberry Cough or Cheese Kush. Even with its second parent not exactly confirmed, Raspberry is the perfect choice for any patient looking for a delicious bud with happy relaxing effects that hit both mind and body. Raspberry is said to have a sweet creamy flavor of raspberries and vanilla and an aroma to match. The Raspberry high starts with a euphoric lift that boosts your mood and leaves you feeling completely happy and at ease. You may experience a slight decrease in energy that’s very calming, pulling you down into slight buzzy sedation that numbs any physical or mental pains. With these effects and its powerful 16-20% average THC level, Raspberry is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic pain, muscle spasms, insomnia, depression, and chronic stress or anxiety. Raspberry buds have grape-shaped neon green nugs with rich purple undertones and hairs and a sticky coating of sweet syrupy resin topped with super tiny crystal clear trichomes.
Hashish is the moment at which the essence of cannabis (the trichomes) parts ways with the plant material itself. This is achieved when the ripe and resinous gland heads that line the surface of female cannabis plants are separated and collected. Processes to achieve resin separation have been practiced for centuries; however, the rapid rise of cannabis legalization in the western world has brought new methods in hash preparation that are sweeping legal markets by storm.
