After a long summer day, shut down your brain with the trendy, minty indica hybrid Gush Mints. Surging into the top 200 strains across America in just three years—Gush Mints gets smokers cooked, and it’s a beast in the garden. That’s a winning recipe for becoming a Leafly HighLight. Let’s soak in it. (This Leafly HighLight is powered by ILGM+Phylos Seeds.)

“This smells exactly how I want my weed to smell. It has that durban poison/ cookies gassy sweetness with like a vanilla pine,” said one reviewer.

Gush Mints makes reviewers feel sleepy, tingly, and hungry.

“I swear this is a hard indica. Helps with my insomnia and chronic back pain,” said one reviewer.

It’s going to have 20% THC or more, making it very strong for newbies, who could get dizzy, nervous, and even a little headachey. Reviewers find it maximally calming, which we could all use in an election year.

“The effect really reminds me of Hindu Kush,” said one reviewer.

Gush Mints comes from the Oakland, CA breeder and cloner Purple City Genetics—which has been at it since before legalization. PCG made the strain with Seed Junky Genetics’ game-changing Kush Mints wedded to the rare F1 Durb, and the successful modern strain Gushers (aka TK41). Each strain added mint flavor, vigor, or sweetness—respectively. Gush Mints will take over your garden. 

Has been a pleasure growing. Strain is voracious and very thirsty.

Gush Mints terpenes

Gush Mints reeks of the essential oils that Cannabis produces—called terpenes. Chief among them: limonene, caryophyllene, and linalool. Those three help explain some of the sweetness and gassiness of Gush Mints, but we’re still learning more about what causes weed’s smells, tastes, and effects.

If you like heavy yielders in the garden like Gush Mints—look at Purple Punch crosses. Modified Grapes is GMO x Purple Punch for a grape, berry, honey taste, and relaxingly frisky effects. It shares two of three top terps with Gush Mints and grows plentiful across the country. 

And there’s your July 2024 Leafly HighLight. Go out and crush each day, then kick back and puff on something that’s tasty and restful. It’ll all go by quickly.
