King's Kush Marijuana Strain
Indica Dominant Hybrid
King’s Kush is an Indica-dominant hybrid that produces a desirable range of effects and a THC count of up to 20%.
For most users, the first effects of this strain begin with elevated mood. A full body melt, which can take up to 20 minutes to develop, follows. These body effects can cause users to feel lazy, tired, and sedated. In spite of this effect, some still find King’s Kush very stimulating for the mind, and a few even call it psychedelic. Those who experience cerebral stimulation often find that this strain imparts energy and creativity rather than “couch-lock” and/or sleep. Its downsides are common ones and include dry mouth and eyes and occasional dizziness.
For most, this strain is best used at nighttime. It is often prescribed for nighttime pain and inflammation relief. It is also regularly used to treat insomnia. The uplifting effects of King’s Kush make it good for unwinding, alleviating stress and anxiety, and regulating mood disorders. Some patients use it to ease the effects of Parkinsonís disease and multiple sclerosis, while others choose it to fight nausea, vomiting, and anorexia.
King’s Kush, created by Green House Seeds, is a cross between the much sought after OG Kush and Grape Ape. This 70% Indica hybrid can be grown successfully indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse. Not recommended for beginners, this strain produces a moderate yield after flowering in about nine weeks.
An indica dominant hybrid, King’s Kush is an extremely potent strain – about 70% indica and 30% sativa – that offers a variety of effects and is known for its high THC content, which is between 20-24% on average. The buds of this strain are extremely dense, and are often dark green with thick, curly orange hairs throughout and a thick coating of white crystals that make the bud appear fuzzy at first glance. The aroma of this strain is one that you simply cannot forget – nearly replicating a bottle of Pine-Sol according to most (which is a trait likely coming from it’s OG parent), while the taste tends to favor a mixture of pine and grape (which clearly comes from the Grape Ape parent).
The effects of this strain come on strong and quick – there is not much of a delay in the initial onset as you will almost immediately notice a cerebral buzz, a euphoric and relaxed feeling that is followed quickly (around 20 minutes) by a sedating couchlock. However, some veteran consumers are able to consume this strain and focus on the cerebral effects enough that they become energized. In most cases, the end of your buzz will result in a nap no matter which way the initial effects go. If you are new to cannabis, then you will want to take it slow with this strain because it will become intense quickly.
The cerebral effects of this strain make it a great choice for people who are suffering from depression and anxiety – it allows you to be at ease, and can calm the mind in moderate doses. It is also extremely beneficial to people living with conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, as well as chronic pain and PTSD. The sedating effects also come in handy for those who suffer from insomnia.
Side effects for this strain are to be expected – dry eyes and dry mouth being the most common. If newer consumers have too much, then it does have the potential to increase paranoia – but regular consumers should be able to use this strain for anxiety-related conditions without issue. This strain also has a tendency to increase appetite, making it an excellent choice for people with loss of appetite and wasting syndrome.
OG Kush & Grape
OG Kush Strain
Indica Dominant Hybrid – 75% Indica / 25% Sativa
THC: 19% – 24% / CBN: 1%
OG Kush is an American marijuana classic, a Southern California original with some of the highest THC levels in the world. With a 25:75 sativa/indica ratio, this strain pulls no punches. Expect a hard, mixed high with intense euphoria followed by serious couch-lock. The plant’s THC concentration can reach levels as high as 19-24%. That just 1 percentage point less than the current record-holder. The cerebral boost from OG Kush is ideal for depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety, while the heavy body high can help with pain and nausea. OG Kush is also used to treat Alzheimer’s disease. Dry mouth and eyes are the most common negative effects, though headaches and paranoia are also possible. This strain is a hybrid, probably a descendant of a female Chemdawg plant and a male Hindu Kush plant. OG Kush, which has given rise to countless West Coast strains, has an earthy, wood taste and a strong pine scent. It’s most popular in California, the Pacific Northwest, and Colorado.
Grape Kush Strain
Indica Dominant Hybrid – 60% Indica / 40% Sativa
THC: 13% – 18%
Grape Krush is an indica dominant hybrid strain and has a 60:40 indica/sativa ratio. The strain belongs to the Blueberry family which explains why it has an exquisite taste and flavor. The buds tend to be dark green in color with hues of purple. You will also notice larger calyxes which is high unusual considering its heritage. The nuggets are round and dense making it more visually appealing than it already is. On the other hand, the aroma is both musky and sweet. The taste is not that different but it is quite soothing and does not burn your throat during the inhale or exhale. Before giving Grape Krush a try, you need to keep in mind that it is a creeper. The strain is not to be taken lightly and should be consumed in smaller doses. Grape Krush is quite potent and will knock you out if you are not careful. The effects can make you feel sleepy and sedated but you will have a sense of clarity which is something to look forward to. But then again, you will not feel like doing anything else and will restrict yourself from moving even an inch. That being said, it is important for you to keep in mind that the strain is effective in terms of dealing with medical conditions like stress, anxiety, depression and muscle spasms.
