There are some varying opinions about the organs of Ancient Kush. Some believe it is a mystery while others say it is a cross between an Iranian landrace and Snow Lotus. Either way, it is a popular indica cannabis strain bred by Bodhi Seeds.
Ancient Kush has average THC levels of 15% to 21%, making it a moderately potent strain. The buds are small and green with dark orange hair and frosty trichomes. When smoked, there are flavors of an earthy sweetness, while the smell is like citrus fruit with hints of grass.
It is a highly uplifting strain that is intensely cerebral. It hits the head with hard waves of energy and excitement. This is accompanied by a mild body buzz that will eventually leave you feeling spacey on the couch. Furthermore, the munchies are very common, so keep snacks to hand.
Medicinally, Ancient Kush may be able to help with chronic pain, moderate depression and stress. Furthermore, some use it for nausea and lack of appetite. However, newcomers should be careful as a high dosage will quickly go from energetic to full couchlock.
Growers recommend the sea of green gardens technique for Ancient Kush. It can thrive both indoors and outdoors, but the yields will be different. In the right conditions though, it will produce a large yield in around 10 weeks.
It is a great choice for those looking for an evening high that will eventually leave them ready for bed. It is an ideal balance of energy and sedateness.
