Love the peppery taste, but the pungent smoke always makes me cough. I took a couple of tokes and made me very dreamy. I also felt quite warm and I recommend it to pair with a nice movie - what a sensation!

This is a knockout cannabis. Any stoner who knows what is what, will not pass by the opportunity to experience the stars while on their beds. The flowers have a silvery appearance and the trichomes are sticky to touch. The flowers are in small clusters with olive green leaves. It may be too strong to take in public. I like to sit in my room and enjoy my smoke without interference.

In my opinion, Royal Kush is far better than pure kush. It hits differently in a more potent way. It takes care of pains in the body and in the joint. It helps with eating disorders and reduces nausea . It is like an all in one strain for me. The kush works well with my body unlike pure kush.

Quite potent even though the smoke is thick. I guess the potency makes up for the thickness.

lub dub, lub dub, that is the sound that follows after vaping this weed. It takes away the stress of the day, any aches related to tiredness and causes me to sleep like a baby who listened to a lullaby. I sleep well which ensures I am energized and ready to roll out of bed in a great shape.

No place for sleepless nights in my life when I roll up some leaves before retiring to bed.

I had an accident with my car, the car was condemned due to impact. I had to undergo several surgeries. After I came home, I could not sleep. I did not know if it was the reoccurring pain or the nightmares. Since I was still taking some medications, I opted to have the leaves added to cookies or simple meals. The effect comes on slowly that it does not get overwhelming and cause panic like I heard some say it can. My body is relaxed, my mind follows in a little while. I am able to sleep well without nightmares and pains.

whenever I have movie night with my friends, we pass the joint around before the movie and during the movie to put everyone in a relaxed mood.

Grinding this bud reveals the hash notes in it. The smoke is quite heavy and chocking. I dont like the harshness and thickness of the smoke. It causes my eyes to water and even my nose starts running. It eventually makes me feel relaxed but I think I can get a better strain.

Exact genetics is unknown. But some sources say, that a well-balanced hybrid, Pure Kush (PK) weed is thought to be the cross between Strawberry Kush and another unidentified parent. Others say that parent strain is OG Kush, or pure Afghani Indica strain.
