The 8 Ball Kush strain is Indica dominant and created by crossbreeding plants from the Hindu Kush Mountains on the borders between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Cannabis grows wild in that region although it is cultivated by local farmers, usually to make high-grade black hashish.
This weed has an earthy aroma that reminds you of quality hashish and the flavour is similar with a distinct aftertaste of exotic spices. It’s a heavy hitting weed and you’ll feel intensely stoned after smoking it. This is really a weed for evening smoking and for relaxing in front of the TV. In medical use, this cannabis can help with insomnia and muscular pain.
8 Ball Kush seeds produce short, bushy plants with robust side stems and broad, dark green leaves. The buds are heavy and round, and covered with sticky resin. THC content ranges from 15 to 18.5 percent.
Indoors, 8 Ball Kush seeds grow well with either the SOG or SCROG methods and it displays good resistance to both mildew and pests. It’s not a fussy strain and will tolerate variations in temperature, water supply and humidity within reason. Flowering time is seven to eight weeks and yields are around 450 grams per square metre.
Since it’s a hardy strain, growers in cooler northern areas can successfully raise crops in the open. Plant it in the sunniest spot in the garden, preferably somewhere it’s sheltered from the wind. Harvest in the northern hemisphere comes in mid to late September.
8 Ball Kush is one of the easier strains to grow so it’s a good option for new gardeners. This 8 Ball Kush review also recommends it for experienced growers who will appreciate the consistent harvests and the potency of the final product.
