Four Star General Kush is a commanding strain. Its THC levels range between 22% to 30%, making it one of the most potent Indica-leaning hybrids in the cannabis industry. Not only that, it is an attractive bud too. It is laced with streaks of purple and green with subtle red hairs that add contrast to its hues. Meanwhile, a thick coat of trichomes and dripping resin allude to the power it holds within its density.
Of course, nothing short is to be expected of a plant like Four Star General. After all, it is the love child of two of Chemdawg’s standout varieties. First is Stardawg, which boasts a bright coat of sparkling trichomes that look like stars when shined upon. Apart from being recreational, it is renowned for its ability to ease the effects of stress.

Generally speaking, Four Star General Kush is a slow starter. Usually, it takes at least 15 minutes before the first sign of its effects begin. However, once it does, it ushers in a soothing euphoria that swarms users head first.

As such, it is best to have snacks prepared. Otherwise, getting up and going to the kitchen can be quite the hassle especially once the Indica effects begin.
Gradually, a light pressure erupts from the temples and travels down to the rest of the body. It intensifies over time until it develops into a soothing blanket of relaxation that removes tension from all over the body. It urges users to kick back, recline, and relax. In all likelihood, beginners unused to the side effects of its potent THC or seasoned users who go beyond the recommended amount might just end up in a couch-lock. After a few hours, a wave of sedation comes over users.
Because of its ability to induce sleep, the strain is best used at night as it can interfere with one’s productivity throughout the day.
The pungent aroma of spicy diesel indicates Four Star General’s presence from a distance. There is a distinct floral note that enhances its initial sharpness. When combusted, the sweet scent of wet soil fills the room.
