White Kush is a stunning indica hybrid that comes with some sublime genetics. The strain is a cross between notoriously resinous White Widow and an Afghani landrace indica.
White Kush carries a classic OG vibe and deeply relaxing effects, which makes it a perfect choice for an evening when you have no engaging activities planned. The THC content of White Kush can get anywhere between 11% and 29% depending on how it’s bred.
When cured by the right hands, this amazing hybrid produces a predominantly dank odor with hints of damp earth. While this initial basement-like aroma doesn’t sound like heaven, the sweet and sour edge balances the skunky aroma and adds some pizzazz to your sensory experience with a kick of spice.
When smoked, White Kush may sting the palate and make your eyes water after the first few hits, but as you exhale this smoke, it starts to taste sweet, with a bit woodsy feeling on the tongue.
The high from White Kush is a creeping one and may take up to 10 minutes to kick in, even for those who consume THC daily. At first, you’ll feel a cerebral rush that results in a boost of euphoria and a mild flush in the cheeks accompanied by increased salivation.
As the high sets in, users commonly report a wave of utter relaxation spreading throughout the body. This sensation rolls down the neck and radiates through the spine, leaving you entirely pain-free.
The mental effects of White Kush are generally limited to improved sensory perception such as closed-eye visualizations, as well as feelings of time dilation. These slightly psychedelic properties can stop you from accomplishing analytical, task-based work, not to mention that overindulging in its skunky buds will most likely result in a couch lock, or, at least, a long binge-watching session.
In the right setting, this sedative bud is a great remedy for sleep disorders because it dissolves any stresses or preoccupations of the day into the background. The strain can temporarily reduce acute stress, symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, nausea, and chronic pain. In addition, White Kush increases appetite like crazy, so as long as you keep your intake of this indica powerhouse in moderation, you’re going to be all good.
Speaking of potency, it’s important not to go overboard with White Kush, as the strain — especially those batches with higher THC content — may prove overwhelming for users who are particularly sensitive to its psychedelic effects.
Outdoor growers are advised to cultivate White Kush consistent daytime temperatures ranging between 70 and 80 F. The strain offers a yield of about 1.3 ounces of flower per plant. Indoor cultivation calls for 9 to 10 weeks of flowering before White Kush will be ready for harvest.
White Kush’s deep indica effects are fun for some solo introspection, but it also feels great when consumed among a group of friends. Whenever you feel the desire to unwind from a stressful day at work, or you’re up for some me-time on a lazy weekend, White Kush will become one of your best friends.
