Yo, what’s up? My name is Dan, and today we’re talking about the different types of cannabis. You probably heard people talk about Indica, Sativa, and Ruderalis, but did you know that there are strains that can be further categorized based on their culture? That’s right, we’re talking about Purple, Haze, and Kush.
Kush is one of the most famous strains in the world, and for a good reason. It has won multiple awards and is not to be trifled with. Some of its derivative strains include Bubba Kush, OG Kush, and Purple Kush, just to name a few.
But what is Kush exactly? Well, let me break it down for you. Kush originated from the Himalayan mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan. This cannabis grows naturally in these regions and is known to be an adaptable plant that can survive the most horrible circumstances.
Nowadays, most Kush strains are hybrids, with Indica Kush being the most popular breed compared to Sativa Kush. However, Sativa Kush can still be grown with the right conditions and some relentless breeding.
Kush strains are characterized by their appearance, effects, smell, and flavors. When growing a Kush strain, expect it to have dark green leaves and colas with little hints of purple. The pistils turn bronze or slightly brown as harvest time nears.
Kush strains are also popular for their distinct effects. They produce a strong sedative effect initially, followed by uplifting thoughts, positive vibes, and moments of giggles. However, these effects vary from strain to strain and depend on their genetics.
In terms of smell and flavor, Kush strains offer a variety of scents or odors depending on the strain’s genes. They can provide sweet, earthy, floral, pungent, fruity, tropical, gas, herbal, and pepper aromas.
For growers seeking a stabilized strain that gives a generous yield and manageable height that can be ideally grown indoors or outdoors go for strains with Kush genes. The Kush genes possess great resistance to common elements that are found in their origin like severe weather conditions and modest water intake.
There are hundreds of popular strains in the world that have Kush in their names like OG Kush and Bubba Kush. These strains offer great sedative effects that almost always leads to a couch-lock.
However, before you go to sleep or get too high always seek a doctor’s advice if it is for your medication because taking this may work for others but not for you.
Anyways that’s all folks! Now you know what Kush is all about and why it remains popular up to this very day.
