THC: 23% – 24%
WSU is a 100% pure indica hybrid strain that is a Washington grown version of the infamous Chemo strain. Like its parent, this bud is grown for the purpose of treating the great pains and unfortunate side effects of chemotherapy, although WSU packs a heavier level of THC than its sister strain, topping out at about 24% on average. The WSU high is very gentle and relaxing in nature, with slightly sedative effects that won’t knock you out but rather do wonders for easing away mental and physical pains. The most notable aspect of the WSU high is its hunger-inducing effects that can chump the worst nausea with ease. WSU also does wonders for relaxing aching muscles and bones, lulling the body into a state of calm. In combination with its powerful THC level, these effects give WSU an advantage in treating the effects of chemotherapy in addition to nausea, cramps and spasms, chronic pain, and depression. The taste of WSU is surprisingly mellow, with a sweet fruity flavor that has a touch of grapey earth. The aroma is just as mild, with a berry earthy overtone that’s accented by sweet fruits and grape. WSU buds have piecey leafy forest green nugs with sparse furry amber hairs and a thick frosty blanket of tiny amber crystal trichomes.
