There are various Marijuana strains, and choosing which one to use depends on your needs and preferences. You can select from Indica and Sativa strains, or you can have a mix of both. The Minnesota Medical Marijuana Dispensary offers plenty of medical products for their patients. One of the most well-known Indica dominant hybrid strains is the Cotton Candy Kush.

Origin of name

Cotton Candy Kush got its name from its soft, fluffy appearance. It also has an intense candied aroma.


This variant is a hybrid between Lavender, a descendant of Skunk and Afghan Hawaiian, and Power Plant, native to South Africa. Its THC level is around 17-20%, and it contains 1% of CBD. Cotton Candy Kush has a bit more mental-kick than others because of Power Plant. Medical marijuana patients prefer Cotton Candy Kush because of this.
