Taste and Smell

Like other high-quality strains of cannabis, Cotton Candy consists of a unique profile of terpenes and flavonoids that work together to create a one-of-a-kind aroma and flavor.

Many patients who have been lucky enough to try Cotton Candy rave about its sweet, doughy smell and taste. With hints of floral and pepper behind its citrus-sweet front, Cotton Candy dances across a patient’s palate from the moment the aroma hits the nose to the last draw of smoke or vapor. 


It’s important to note that every strain of cannabis can produce varying effects on each person who uses them. Generally speaking, Cotton Candy tends to help patients feel calm, cool, and collected. Cotton Candy is a popular strain used to wind down at the end of a long day because it is capable of producing calming effects without the full body high many indicas boast.

Uplifting effects run throughout the strain, helping to lift your mood and keep you feeling more balanced. Cotton Candy leaves most users feeling happy, giggly, and relaxed.


Cotton Candy has a few distinct traits that make it a bit more identifiable than most other strains of cannabis. The strain is a deep, rich green with occasional pops of contrasting colors like orange and purple throughout the bud. The bud is covered in a thick frost of trichomes, often making it look like it has a bit of a white haze. The bud itself is fluffy and soft but can become sticky when you begin to grind it or pull it apart.

Cotton Candy Strain Reviews

This indica strainhas the power to help even the most anxious patients relax without fully pinning them to the couch. Whether you’re looking to wind down after a long day, you have chronic pain that needs to be addressed, or something in between, Cotton Candy could be the strain for you.

Here’s what real patients are saying about Cotton Candy:

“I got a half ounce of this, brought it home, and was taken aback by how beautiful this bud was. It's absolutely covered in trichomes, and some of these buds are the deepest purple I've seen... The smell is something ethereal.”
“The effects come on quickly yet smoothly. Relaxation starts in your temples and eyes and works its way down your back. My mind feels alert with no anxiety to speak of. Not much fatigue, grogginess, or couch lock. Nice daytime strain with great anxiety relieving qualities.”
“This is in the top 3 buds I've ever tasted. Sweet and flowery smoke, buds that smell almost like candy, and a delicate balance between a mellowed out body and a stimulated happy mind.”
“I love this strain SO much. It’s the perfect day time strain that keeps you functional but provides a wonderful body buzz. Sat around with friends and had great conversation - didn’t get sleepy or lazy, just mellow and the buzz slowly melts away without you really realizing it’s gone.”
“Probably one of the best Indicas I've had for night time sleep.”
“Wow. Impressive. Just about every aspect of this strain is dope, no pun intended. Creeps up on you and gradually keeps creepin'. Literally, CC relaxes you.” 
“This is my favorite strain by far, the kind of strain that I save for a rainy day. It really does taste and smell just like cotton candy, especially when it's fresh. The high for me is very clear headed and happy, no matter how bad my day gets if I just have a little bit of this I feel 100% better.”
“After one joint my problems, worries, strain, pain, and stress drifted away... Great mood lifter, stress relief, and pain relief. Wonderfully beautiful aromatic buds that [are] reminiscent of carnival stands.”
“Very Tasty!! Unique profile with sweetness to it, [and a] gassy undertone.”
“This gave me a very relaxing body high, as well as a pretty good head high. I found myself able to function very well also. All around, this is a great and favorite strain! Definitely recommended!”
“This was amazing for tendon pain! Just like lava over my tendons, they melted and I had no pain.”
“This is my go to strain for unwinding after work. It eases my anxiety and meets me where I’m at: relaxes me when I want to chill, and gives me energy when I want to move. It makes me happy and euphoric.”
“It tastes just as amazing as it smells. It's rare to find a strain that smells great, tastes great, and works for my headaches all at the same time. I could never get sick of it either... Worked swimmingly for my migraines as well and did make me hungry and a little sleepy.”
“I picked up a gram to try for my chronic pain. It is beautiful, very light green with thick white frosting that makes it really sticky, yum. It has a nice cerebral high and a great body hit but no couch lock. This is a happy, uplifting strain. My pain melted away and I could enjoy the rest of the afternoon. It is good for night time and sleeping problems.”
“Euphoric, creative, and happy? Check, check, and check. I wasn't expecting this strain to become my favorite but I was quickly corrected on the matter. Cotton Candy is amazing. It has a subtle, floral aroma and is super smooth... Even just lying down and relaxing feels better under its effects.”
Great classic indica! Reminds me of the old days, has that sweet smell that I love and remember. Extremely reliable.
