Katyusha is a magnificent creation by Kalashnikov Seeds. Oozing with 80% indica genes and 20% sativa genes, the strain was made by combining Hindu Kush and Kubanskiy Ubiyza. It produces dark green nugs with profuse trichome production. Its dense structure is also complete with the smell of sweetness and sandalwood. It can be grown indoors and outdoors.
The strain was named after a famous Russian rocket launcher which reflects the high it offers. Katyusha hits strong and fast. The relaxing euphoric high manifests right away after the first hit. Through its sweet, woody and earthy flavors, it launches the user to space. It erases any traces of negativities from head to toe, from negative thoughts, down to body aches. Best for night time use, it increases mental relaxation. Dopamine is also increased so it is easier to solve problems with organized thoughts.
The strain can treat a variety of mental and physical conditions, such as anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue and stress, including alleviating of bipolar disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Physical pains include muscle spasms, inflammation, headache, back pain and neck pain. It can also soothe nausea, and induce appetite for people with anorexia experiencing appetite loss.
The strain’s medical benefits may be promising, but if you smoke beyond tolerance, it can be overshadowed by negative effects. It can cause dry mouth, dry eyes and nausea. It can also make the throat dry. Even though the high it can give becomes higher as intake is increased, it is still not advisable to overindulge. The strain can trigger anxiety and paranoia.
The weed is perfect for Sea of Green (SOG) growing. The lighting switch will allow fast growing while still retaining indica structure and height. Normally, this method does not require training anymore. It is best to emulate the Hindu Kush temperature at night. Air ventilation should be increased. You can do this by simply trimming the leaves carefully.
