“A King may only be King so long as you trust in his power and choose to let him keep it.” An appropriate quote for a powerful bud fit to its name and its duty. King Kush by Green House Seeds is bred of two royal houses, OG Kush and the ever elusive Grape Ape strains. This strong bud builds over time, gaining your trust before hitting like a ton of bricks and having you completely stoned and relaxed for hours on end.
As is expected with the Kush family, this hybrid packs a punch of THC that averages around 18% and boasts of a 70/30 indica-dominant blend. These tangy nugs smell of sweet grape and lavender and taste both sweet and sour, with hints of grapefruit and earthy tones – the perfect flavor contrasts to match its deceptive appearance. With dark green, leafy buds rich in purple undertones and frosty white trichomes, they give the illusion that they will be a soft and airy high, but as we know with this strain’s lineage, soft and airy is not likely.
There are some immediate happy and upbeat feelings that come with King Kush. After the first couple of hits, users will be left with a euphoria absent of body buzzes. This creeper body high comes on slowly, often leaving you to believe that you need more to ‘really feel it,’ but like a true Kush when it hits it hits hard. Be cautious of overdoing it as the effects are mighty and will have you silly stoned in just a short time. Your body will let go fully and the relaxation, bordering full on sleepiness, will sweep away any residual motivation.
King Kush is a top-notch sedative and is highly recommended for experienced users needing to find relief from insomnia, aches and pains, headaches, or muscle spasms. As it has the ability to uplift the mood and stimulate good feelings, it’s also beneficial to those suffering from mood disorders such as depression, stress, or anxiety. Though it is an all around great weed, it is not recommended for brand new or novice consumers.
The flowering time for this plant is around 9 weeks and will produce an above average yield if grown in the right conditions. This plant loves cool climates and will flourish in either indoor systems or outdoor gardens. When the strain has fully matured, purple and blue veins will appear on the stem of the plant.
Whether you are a medicinal or recreational user, this is an extremely enjoyable high for anyone with the experience to love a Kush of this strength. With flavors so perfect you’ll want to smear them on your breakfast toast and a fully relaxing high that takes you to dream town and beyond, you’ll be chanting “Long live the King!” before you even know it.
