CBD Kush descends from the tasty medicinal cultivar Kandy Kush, which has been crossbred with an unnamed CBD-rich variant. With equal parts THC and CBD, the potential healing properties of cannabidiol accompanied by a mellow and relaxing euphoric high are the hallmarks of this herb.
Its appeal to consumers mainly lies in its reputation for soothing pain and anxiety. But it's also ideal for those with little smoking experience thanks to its bearable THC levels. Many of its characteristic traits – such as growth pattern, sweet floral aroma and earthy flavor – are reminiscent of its mother cultivar, Kandy Kush. She's a highly regarded Indica-dominant hybrid that combines the classic OG Kush and the resinous Trainwreck. Not only is she high-yielding, but she's also said to bear numerous therapeutic benefits and a pronounced terpene profile.
Growing your own CBD Kush crop from Homegrown Cannabis Co.'s feminized seeds allows you to harness the cultivars benefits at a much lower cost than buying it from dispensaries. It can be tackled by growers of all skill levels, as it's pretty much hassle-free. With feminized seeds, there's less cause for concern over accidental pollination because the batch is guaranteed to be almost 100% female.
Growing CBD Kush Feminized
CBD Kush, as is typical of Indica dominant varieties, sports a sturdy and low-profile structure. With short internodes, it reaches a height of just 3 to 4 feet which makes it perfect for indoor cultivation.
One of the main goals in developing this cultivar was to speed up the flowering time. Since the plant's genetics make it a naturally speedy grower, it takes only 7 – 9 weeks to bloom.
Growing this plant is not difficult, as long as the risk of contamination or disturbances in the environment is well managed. To maximize productivity, provide suitable growing conditions and make a habit of manicuring the fan leaves so the light can penetrate the lowest flowering nodes. Doing this also encourages better airflow in the dense foliage, which deters mold proliferation. If discreetness is a priority, installing carbon filters will be necessary to eliminate the pungent smell of the buds.
The Sea of Green technique is highly recommended for a plentiful harvest. When grown in optimal conditions, you can expect a yield of 1.47 to 1.63 ounces per square foot of dense, neon green nugs with vibrant amber pistils and a sticky coating of frosty trichomes.
CBD Kush can also thrive outdoors in a warm, Mediterranean climate. Abundant sunlight will enable it to reach its full potential by boosting growth and resin production to maximum levels. Outside, each plant can produce as much as 21 to 28 ounces by mid-October. It's best to choose a remote location as neighbors might not appreciate the robust scent of cannabis wafting in the air.
Fragrance and Flavor
CBD Kush gets its pungent and distinct aroma from the nuanced terpene profile it inherited from Kandy Kush. Breaking apart its buds reveals a sweet and musty scent reminiscent of pine, wood and earth. It also contains spicy notes of herbs and incense, courtesy of its Afghani landrace lineage.
Its rich flavors are a delight to the senses too. The potpourri of citrusy exotic fruits, sweet freshly baked pastries, and a tang of diesel leaves an unforgettable aftertaste on the palate.
With up to 8% of both tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol, CBD Kush offers well-balanced effects that cater to the needs of both medicinal and recreational users.
Thanks to its CBD content, the cultivar offers high therapeutic potential while simultaneously taming the effects of the THC, leading to a subtle psychedelic high. It's often sought by those with low THC tolerance because, despite its minimal psychoactive capacity, it brings about a relaxed, happy and euphoric high that enhances the mood. Its moderate body effect is soporific and profoundly relaxing, and may help ease you into a restful sleep without the couch-lock beforehand. These properties make CBD Kush a versatile cultivar that can be relished at any time of the day.
Just like most other cannabis cultivars, CBD Kush can cause adverse reactions such as dry eyes and cottonmouth, which can usually be mitigated with proper hydration. Mild headaches and dizziness may also occur, and they'll usually disappear on their own, but it's better to avoid them altogether by practicing proper dosing.
CBD Kush Feminized Seeds
Meticulous breeding practices have enriched CBD Kush's genetics with the trademark qualities of both its parent cultivars. This impressive descendant bears most of Kandy Kush's therapeutic qualities, which are further amplified by the infusion of a high-CBD cultivar. The result is a potential medicinal powerhouse that's highly coveted for its analgesic, anxiolytic, anti-depressant, antiemetic and anti-inflammatory properties. It's also sought by recreational users for its subtle yet satisfying cerebral high and relaxing physical effects. It's suitable for daytime and nighttime use as it's unlikely to get you very high or stop you getting tasks done.
Despite the long list of benefits, CBD Kush buds are hard to come by at dispensaries, so cultivating it at home is often a more viable choice. Obtaining feminized seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. is as easy as can be – and so is growing them in the comfort of your home. Not only is it a convenient and cost-effective process, but you can also rest assured that the flavorful and aromatic buds are free from pesticide residues and grown under the best conditions possible.
