Need a new Kush strain to try? Best Bud Seeds has you covered. What is a Kush Strain? Kush is the reference to type of strain, typically Indica. But the story doesn't end here, Kush cannabis varieties actually have an ancient back story. In the Himalayan Mountain range, the environment was ideal for cultivating cannabis. The region has long grown some of the world’s most incredible cannabis to ever be consumed. Therefore, the first Kush strain was dubbed Hindu Kush, and was also the first landrace strain to ever exist. A landrace cannabis strain is pure, never crossed and always grown in its natural environment: this isolation and the resulting inbreeding means these varieties are highly stable and extremely vigorous. All popular Kush strains — like Bubba Kush, Purple Kush, and Cali Kush are all related to Hindu Kush in some way or another. Kush cannabis seed strains are extremely popular not just because of the hype, but because of the remarkable flavor and effect. Kush is predominantly Indica, but there are some hybrids that provide a 80/20 ratio of Sativa that include Kush strains. Real Hindu Kush cannabis should smell like lemon-pine-fuel with a high-THC kick, providing a mixed head and body effect. It's often enjoyed in the later part of the day after a good dinner or movie. Kush strains are a popular strain choice for experienced growers. Kush strain varieties can be grown indoors and outdoors, but usually do much better outdoors. This strain grows best when the plants are able to grow large and are not confined to pots. OG Kush has a flowering time of 56 days. If grown outdoors, this plant will finish in early October. Depending on which kind of crossed strain you get, Kush offers a medium to large yield for most grows.
