King Kush, also known as King’s Kush strain, is a hybrid cannabis strain with strong Indica-dominance and an Indica/Sativa ratio of about 80/20. Although the original breeder is unknown, its lineage is known to be a cross between the famous OG Kush and Grape strains. Among its primary cannabinoids, it carries around 19-21% THC and about 0.12-0.74% CBD. Even if the THC content may look pretty average, one shouldn't take this kush lightly due to the potent effects that gradually show themselves. So it’s better to be prepared and careful with the dosages, while novice smokers are recommended to choose something lighter. Besides those facts, King Kush strain is ready to impress connoisseurs with its unique flavors, the appearance of which is possible only thanks to the following terpenes:

King Kush Strain Flavor Profile

Almost as a true Indica, its majesty meets the consumer with the pungent, skunky, and earthy aromas inherent to kush mixed with appealing sweetness. Worth mentioning that the fragrance may be pretty noticeable, making it a matter of concern for tokers consuming it discreetly. The King Kush strain taste can be rather intriguing, mixing diesel-like flavor inherited from OG Kush with a sweet and flowery presence reminiscent of lavender, as well as a slight vanilla note. Regarding the influence of terpenes, the highlighted pungency appears due to a cooperative work of camphene and terpineol. At the same time, terpineol is also responsible for flowery and vanilla presence, while ocimene provides sweetness.

Common Effects

Another interesting fact about this cannabis is its ability to cause cough, so better be prepared. Staying loyal to its genetics, the high builds up as gradually as it elevates the smoker into euphoric bliss. It starts with slight tingles, then relaxes and erases all thoughts that can be considered unpleasant. Afterward comes the sedation that combines with sharpened concentration and constant uplift, leaving one in a hazy state without any place for racy thoughts. Besides providing a first-rate Indica experience and a powerful couch-lock, this cannabis stimulates hunger and drowsiness. However, some reviewers state that instead of a couch-lock, they felt an improvement in focus and creativity, maintaining the possibility to move freely. The best time for consuming King Kush weed strain is during the nighttime.

Naturally, such a potent indica-dominant kush has many medical benefits that are perfect for alleviating:

  • Insomnia
  • Lack of appetite
  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • PMS
  • Epilepsy

On the other hand, the side effects are also present, making it possible to face:
