aka White Gushers
Gushers Strain was developed by Cookie Fam Genetics in the United States. This amazing flower was made by crossing Gelato number 41 and Triangle Kush. The name was derived from a delicious candy. The strain has a sweet taste of blended cookies and tropical fruits.
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 is great for more than just recreational use, too. The moderate THC levels in many varieties make it ideal for therapeutic use. The even, hybrid qualities are useful for everything from chronic pain to anxiety. The euphoric head high combined with a relaxing body high eases worries while also easing aches and pains.

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.
Fragrance and Taste
Smell and aroma are both special and won’t be present in other cannabis strains. The smell is a mixture of candies and low traces of cinnamon and wet soil. Add the spicy herb smell and you can get an idea about the strain and its smell. The aroma is one of the main advantages of Gushers strain.
The flavor of the weed will depend on the process of how it was cut. Users can choose between sweet and creamy flavor, which is more popular, and also pick a spicy and earthy flavor.
Like its fruit snack namesake, sweet, fruity and tropical notes abound when you first crack a jar of fresh Gushers. The tangy aroma comes through strong with each inhale when you light a bowl too. This is one of those nugs of flower that looks so good you almost want to take a bite! The Gelato lineage shows up here as well with notes of cream and pastry.
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.

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.
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.
