About Royal Kush Strain
Royal Kush Strain is a mostly indica hybrid that carries on the prestigious genetics of two classic strains. Created by G13 Labs, a European seed company responsible for many flavor-focused strains, Royal Kush is a cross between staple hybrid Skunk #1 and an Afghani indica landrace. With soothing physical effects and a blissful, dreamy high, this is a variety well suited to mellow nighttime use. According to cannabis testing lab Analytical 360, flowers of Royal Kush have been found to have THC levels of 15% to as much as 25%
This impressive strain has medium to large flowers that ahdere in elongated, chunky buds. The buds have the tight and dense bud structure typical of many other indica varieties. The leaves are a vibrant spring green with yellowish pistils threaded throughout. Certain phenotypes also have shades of purple, a color that comes about when anthocyanin pigments in the plant are agitated by unusually cold temperatures during the growing process. Milky white trichomes cover the outer surfaces and inner crevices of the flowers and give the cured buds an extremely sticky, resinous texture that makes them difficult to break up by hand. Royal Kush has the full-bodied incense aroma of parent strain Afghani, with notes of pine and sandalwood. Underneath these scents is a sour, citrus-like tinge. When combusted, this strain gives off smoke that may seem remarkably smooth for an indica. On the exhale, users will detect a skunky-sweet taste with a little bit of fruit. Notably, Royal Kush has no discernible grape or berry flavors; the pigments that determine this strain’s purple hues do not have a similar effect on its taste. Like Skunk #1, this is a very pungent variety — smokers should double-bag their bud when transporting it and enjoy it in isolated locations.
Royal Kush is a strain that slowly creeps up on the user with full-bodied physical relaxation. In the minutes following consumption, users may feel a tingle in the head and shoulders and shoulders that gradually spreads through the limbs and torso like a wave. Smokers may find themselves breathing and moving more slowly and may feel inclined to veg out in comfortable surroundings. Although some may feel an alteration in their thinking or perception, this takes more of a hazy, rambling character. Psychedelic effects like visual distortions or a sense of time dilation are common.
