Effects & Usage



King’s Kush, with its notable 17-20% THC content, stands as a bastion of relief for those seeking a powerful sedative effect from their cannabis. This Indica-dominant variety lives up to its name – the king of the Kush family – courtesy of its dense nugs, earthy scent, and of course, a potent body high.


King’s Kush is particularly lauded for its gradual onset that crescendos into a full-bodied relaxation, making it an excellent choice for evening or night use. The sense of euphoria that accompanies this relaxation can be a mood elevator, offering a respite from the mundane or the stressful, and setting the stage for a tranquil evening.

Its effects on the mind are just as significant, with many users reporting a gentle wave of euphoria that washes over them, bringing about a calm and content disposition. Some users also describe this experience as psychedelic; you will appreciate King’s Kush on a nice movie night or when you simply want to relax and take things easy.

Sleep does not elude the user who has smoked this royal flower, so you will want to ensure you have no pressing tasks before lighting this bud.


Medicinally, King Kush is utilized to alleviate a range of conditions. Its pain-relieving properties make it a go-to for patients suffering from chronic pain, whether it be due to illness or injury. The strain’s stress-relieving qualities are also notable, as it can provide a much-needed respite for those battling daily stressors. The strain’s ability to induce hunger makes it a valuable ally for those experiencing appetite loss.

Side effects

Due to its THC content, King Kush may induce side effects such as dry mouth, dry eyes, and in some cases, feelings of paranoia, especially in those new to cannabis or with a lower tolerance.

Taste & Smell


King Kush boasts a rich flavour profile that is tangy with grape notes and subtle undertones of lavender and earthiness. This strain is also known for its visually appealing nugs that come in shades of purple and blue, all covered in a dense layer of trichomes.

Its grapefruit scent adds to the complexity, making it a treat for both the palate and the nose.



King’s Kush’s majestic lineage results from a royal coupling between the formidable OG Kush and a sumptuously sweet Grape strain. Green House Seeds created the strain.

OG Kush, a strain celebrated for its robust genetic profile and complex aroma, brings a heavy-hitting influence to King Kush, contributing to its profound relaxing effects and its ability to combat stress and pain. The Grape strain, likely a descendant of Grape Ape or another grape-flavoured varietal, infuses King Kush with its signature tangy grape notes and vibrant colouration ranging from deep purples to rich blues.

Growing conditions

Cultivating King’s Kush requires a medium level of growing experience. It is well-suited for both Screen of Green (SCROG) and Low-Stress Training (LST) techniques, which can help manage its growth and maximize yield.

The flowering time for King Kush is around 9 weeks, and growers can expect potent, frosty nuggets – around 800 grams per metre square indoors and up to 1,000 grams per plant outdoors.
