It has a euphoric head high that will make you almost as giddy as a kid in a candy store. Luckily, the body buzz will relax you and keep you from feeling like you’re bouncing off the walls.

The Gushers weed strain (also known as Fruit Gushers) is a California Cookies Fam Genetics creation. They’ve crossed their famous Gelato #41 with a tropical treat known as Triangle Kush. The result is a tasty 60% indica/40% sativa hybrid with some of the best traits from both parents. THC content varies depending on the grower, but it averages about 15%. Some plants can reach all the way up to 25%, though. If you treat your plants well, you’ll be rewarded.

Gushers Strain Effects

The effects of the Gushers weed strain take a few minutes to build, but they’re worth it. The moderate to high THC content stimulates a buzzy, but laid-back head high that begins as a tingly bliss coming from the back of the scalp and moving forward. It never revs up into an anxious, energetic high. Instead, users find that their worries float away, and life just seems a little easier to handle.

The body
high kicks in with the head high, melting anxiety, worries, and muscle tension
away. It’s best described as low-stress, and many describe the entire
experience as ‘chill.’ The body-calming strain makes you loose, but not tired,
which helps keep the night going. The combination of the chill head high and
the mellow body buzz helps keep users awake and aware, but unstressed. It’s a
great complement to a night on the couch with friends and a good movie.

the candy, Gushers smells sweet and fruity. There’s a serious hint of creamy
cookies from the Gelato #41 heritage. Once you spend a little time with it, the
herby, spicy undertones start to come through.

Adverse reactions

Since the average THC level in Gushers is moderate, adverse reactions are minimal. In general, the most common responses are dry eye and cottonmouth. The indica heritage keeps anxiety down, but it can make you drowsy or slightly paranoid – especially with overconsumption. This means these effects can be minimized by pacing yourself and knowing your limits.

people sleepy, it eases the stress or focus that prevents sleep. The deep
relaxation of this strain helps people find a calm mental place. When the high

Growing the Gushers Strain

The Gushers strain is relatively new, and not many growers have reported their experiences yet. Early reports imply that it’s a pretty standard indica-dominant hybrid. It’s bushy and relatively easy to cultivate as long as there is enough light. Look for plants to reach three to four feet indoors and up to six feet outside.

Since it’s
a bushier strain, you don’t have to worry as much about high-stress training as
you would with a tall, slim strain. You can still use low-stress training to
help get the most out of your plants, though. The Screen of Green method can
help develop an even canopy and maximize the light at every bud site. You could
also try lollipopping to increase the yield.

Using the
lollipopping method is also a good idea because it can help Gusher plants with
airflow. Because this is a bushier strain, its dense foliage can harbor
diseases where you can’t see it. Things like powdery mildew and pests can
thrive in the calm, dark interior of a plant. Pruning using the lollipopping method
will keep airflow even throughout the plant and cut down on pest threats.

Flowering Time


If you’re
growing your Gushers plants inside, you should expect your harvest to take 10-11
weeks. Harvesting the indoor plants usually yields about 3-5 ounces of bud per
square meter.


In the northern hemisphere, Gushers strain plants grown outside should be ready to harvest around late October. Because of this, the strain is better suited to warmer climates where it won’t freeze before it’s ready to smoke. Look for 6-8 ounces of dank bud per plant when grown outside.
