Raspberry Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid of unknown origin, although some sources report its lineage as being a cross of Raspberry Cough and Cheese or Cheese Kush. Popular both medicinally and recreationally, this strain offers balanced effects which start off in the head then move to the body. The mellow high has been described as focused, euphoric, and creative, but also as relaxing and sleepy. Since Raspberry Kush is clone-only and unconfirmed in origin, effects may depend on who’s version you come across. Regardless, look for an aroma of sweet raspberries mixed with an underlying spicy earthiness. Due to its physically relaxing effects, it is recommended that you initially try Raspberry Kush in the evening when you can fully enjoy the experience.

Additional Information

Raspberry Kush is an indica dominant hybrid strain which borrows it’s genetics from Raspberry Cough (the American cousin of the European favourite, “Strawberry Cough”) and Cheese Kush. The buds are a dark green with hints of purple/pink at the leaf tips (if any) and literally frosted in trichomes and crystals, they are dense and tightly formed nugs and there are orange to brown hairs interlaced throughout. The buds exhibit a sweet yet spicy smell which only adds to the intricacy and complexity of this amazing specimen. Its indica dominance is obvious from the first few hits of a joint as it tickles the back of your throat and lungs momentarily but after this discomfort (or pleasure for the true connoisseur) it will open up your lungs and mind into a stoney eden. There is an initial heaviness around the back of the eyes and the pressure only seems to build as the sativa genetics break through and bring forth an uplifting body high and overwhelming sense of euphoria but don’t be fooled as this strain never seems to get you uncomfortably chonged, only relaxed, and the effects last no more than 2-3 hours. The only negative I’ve experienced while smoking this strain is that dry mouth seems to be worse than normal but this can be kept at bay by keeping a glass of your favourite beverage at hand.


The Raspberry Kush strain combines a typically Kush skunky aroma with sweet notes of summer fruits and eastern spices. The high starts off in the head and then spreads to the body so that you’ll feel a strong mental buzz combined with a relaxed physical stone. This is a great smoke for chilling out after a hard day. Medicinally, this works well for people who have trouble sleeping – smoke some as a nightcap and you should get a peaceful night’s sleep.


This versatile hybrid is a roughly even balance of sativa and indica genes, though the exact sativa/indica ratio isn’t widely reported. Neither are the typical amounts of THC or CBD in Red Raspberry Kush, though reviews and user reports suggest it’s a rather potent medical option. It’s a crossbreed of Raspberry Cough and Cheese, two very popular strains available on both the medical and recreational markets.


A dark green bud with hints of purple that is literally frosted with trichomes and crystals. It is an incredibly dense nug with brown stigmas interlaced throughout. The Raspberry Kush experience is a couch-lock, relaxed, and lazy experience. A great smoke for an after-work kick back, or a night cap that will put you soundly to bed. Also, bring out your best munchies because bland food will taste good and good food will taste great!


Raspberry Kush is known for its mouth watering raspberries and cream smell that keeps people wanting more and more. Famous for the upbeat feeling you get even though it’s an indica, but you still get the nice body melt as well. It may make newer timers a bit of time to get used to, and make them a tad lazy, but most people say it makes for a great creative high and does well in social settings too. I love the high off the Raspberry Kush because it’s very mellow and hazy. Many people actually claim it isn’t that strong at all, but that’s not really the case. The raspberry was designed to give you maximum pain relief without making you too tired, that’s why you feel different on this one, it’s got mostly indica in it with a small amount of sativa for the perfect mix.
