King Kush is a 70 percent Indica, 30 percent Sativa hybrid which originated in California and is the result of crossbreeding the OG Kush and the Grape Ape strains. This weed remains a popular choice in both the USA West Coast and Canadian medical cannabis scenes.
The King Kush strain has a distinctive smell with earthy notes as well as hints of spice and incense. The flavor has a sweet grape taste with a noticeable citrus edge to it. The high comes on quite slowly, but once it hits, you’ll definitely know you’ve been smoking. You’ll notice a combination of euphoria and heavy body stone that may lead to the couchlock typical of Indica-dominant strains. Medically, this weed is useful to people who have appetite or sleep problems.
King Kush plants are medium-sized and grow bushy and thick, with lots of side stems and dark green, thick-fingered leaves which take on a purple hue as they mature, especially in cooler temperatures. The buds are quite dense and roundish, glistening with trichomes, and THC levels are as high as 20 percent.
This strain grows well indoors with the SOG method because of its bushy tendencies. It appreciates a healthy dose of nutrients during the growing cycle and the flowering period is around nine weeks. You may need to prune the plant to make sure that light penetrates to all parts.
This is quite a hardy strain, so you should be able to grow it successfully outdoors even in cooler climates as long as it gets enough sunshine. Plant it out after the last risk of frost has passed.
To conclude this King Kush review, if you’re looking for a strain that’s quite easy to grow and produces a potent crop, put this on your marijuana shortlist. With this alongside distinctive grape and citrus flavours, King Kush is an attractive proposition.
