Royal Queens Candy Kush Express Description

Royal Queen Seeds Candy Kush Express These days, as more and more consumers are learning more and more about each particular strain of cannabis, there is an increasing amount of focus on the difference between Sativa and Indica strains. While some prefer one type of strain over the other, there are also quite a few Indica/Sativa hybrid strains.

Generally, even strains that combine a Sativa and an Indica background tend to lean heavily towards one side or the other in both genetic background and effect. ??However, Candy Kush Express FAST Version is unique even amongst Indica/Sativa hybrids: at 40 percent sativa and 60 percent Indica, this Kush strain is about as close to a true, evenly mixed hybrid that there is available. This translates to a unique blend of both Indica and Sativa effects.

The Sweet Special strain is part of Candy Kush’s direct genetic background. Among other things, this strain is known for a sweet taste and hearty, durable plants. These assets translate to Candy Kush, as the plants are physically sturdy for growing indoors or out, and the taste is always pleasingly sweet. The legendary Royal Kush is the other genetic parent of Candy Kush. Royal Kush is a famously Indica-heavy strain, being descended itself from the inexpressibly potent Afghani Kush. Both Afghani and Royal Kush are prized amongst insomniacs for their sedative effects, and more casual and/or recreational smokers note the heavy “couch-lock” present in these strains.

Since this strain does have slightly more Indica in its genetic background, a strong physical stoniness is present. However, the Sativa element of this strain shows itself in a heady, soaring euphoria. The Sativa aspects of Candy Kush help balance the effects, giving the soothing effects an unusual yet welcome energetic quality. This variety is gaining popularity for its unique blend of uplifting and deeply relaxing effects. The most effective medical uses of this strain are stress and pain relief. The low CBD content helps regulate the sedating effect, meaning that this strain has the capacity to relax without completely knocking users out.

It is notable that even with low CBD, the THC content of this strain weighs in at a very hefty 18 percent, making it one of the more potent varieties available. If grown outdoors, these plants yield at least 450 dried grams or up to 500 grams per plant if grown outdoors, or 475 to 525 dried grams when grown indoors. Since this is a Fast Version flowering takes only seven weeks. When growing outdoors it is best to schedule for an early September harvest. When fully grown, the plants will reach a height of up to 100 centimetres indoors, or up to 170 metres outdoors.

Like all Fast Versions, these Candy Kush plants make for an easy growing process. Even novice growers will find that it is surprisingly easy to quickly yield dense, high-quality buds with through a straightforward growing process. Candy Kush Express FAST Version is ideal for growers who are interested in an unusually balanced strain that is easy to grow quickly in either indoor or outdoor conditions.

5 seeds, 4 different phenotypes. 2 squat indica-type phenotypes, and 2 tall-sativa phenotypes. The sativa phenos tend to herm from weeks 3-5 of the flowering period. Buds structure lacking, fluffy. Potency is there, just not great bag appeal. Smells reminiscent of old-school cheese. For the amount of effort, issues and the pickiness of these plants vs. the potency/weight of the end product, I wouldn't recommend this strain. this comment

Easy to grow. I tipped mine early on so the plant was short and stocky. No chance for clones as it was all buds, got about 2 dried ounces off the 1 plant grown practically 100% organic under the sun with a little seasol as a booster. Lots of trichomes visible from early on and a obvious bubblegum smell when you disturb it. Very sticky. Buds still look good solid and hairy after drying. Seems to be a good reliable easy to grow strain. Good for beginners as you cant really go wrong with it. this comment

3/3 seeds germinated and ended up being auto flowering. vegged under 400w mh on 24 hours of light for 35-45 days then started flowering. was showing really good phenotype until flowering started. I have 7 more seeds and will be planting them this week will follow up hopefully 10/10 seeds aren't auto flower because if they are I have to give this strain a zero.

also if cross pollen contaminated all info on this seed would be wrong its not a a+b hybrid its a a+? hybrid. this comment
