Gushers, or the strain commonly known as White Gushers, is fairly fresh to the scene but is already making its mark. The hybrid comes to us from a cross of Gelato #41 x Triangle Kush, a lineage that’s known for its soothing effects and punch of flavors. Its uniquely shaped buds glimmer with a heavy coating of trichomes which lends to its high levels of THC (around 20-24%), and likeability for extracts, too. From seed to harvest, this strain is definitely a delight to see, smell, and experience once it’s ready to puff, puff, pass. Although nearly equal in indica to sativa traits, Gushers is preferred for nighttime use due to its relaxing buzz that’s soothing for the body and mind.
Remember that feeling when your mom re-upped on the fruit snacks as a kid? That’s the type of euphoric rush you’ll experience from the dreamy, uplifting, and satisfying effects of Gusher weed. The strain’s gaining notoriety as one of the best ‘Netflix and Chill’ types of strains that mellows the mind while relaxing your body with soothing tingles. In fact, it’s even said to heighten arousal and enhance pleasure for special date nights at home. Medically, patients seek out Gushers to help relieve pain, nausea, insomnia, stress, and chronic inflammation.
With so many favorable traits, it figures that Gushers is somewhat difficult to grow - especially for beginners. The strain prefers a warm, Mediterranean-like climate which can be hard to dial in for indoor environments. But luckily, the Gushers strain does stick to medium heights at 100cm-180cm (3-6 ft), for outdoor privacy concerns or low indoor ceilings. When providing optimal levels of nutrients and light, you can expect to harvest yields of 400-500gr/m² in 8-10 weeks. If you are growing outdoors, plan for an early October harvest to ensure you keep up with the strain's preferred climate.
Don’t be fooled, Gushers gets its name from its flavors that are reminiscent of the fruit snack we all know and love.
