Royal Queens Special Kush #1 Description

Royal Queen Seeds Special Kush #1 Kush is to Indica varieties what Haze means to Sativa. Much like skunk, kush is a term which can be used to describe a whole lineage of cannabis plants. We use the term Indica today to describe a type of plant which is found naturally (indigenous to) in the India Region. At that time all plants were called Cannabis Sativa, but there was something very different about these varieties which required discrimination into another category, named Indica due to the region where they were first discovered.

Although we now know that Indicas are indigenous to more countries than just India, not only has the term remained, but the pattern of naming weeds after the locations of their discovery has remained also. The first ever Kush weeds that appeared were named in homage to the Hindu Kush, a mountain region which stretches across from Afghanistan into Pakistan.

We decided to resurrect one of these old school Kush strains by bringing it into the modern era with a feminized only seed. Special Kush is our lowest-price seed, perfect for the budget grower. If you’re looking for some decent smoke without the heavy price tag, Special Kush is perfect for you.

Special Kush likes to grow wild as if in the mountains of Afghanistan; this means it will fill up any space it can. Indoors, care should be taken that it doesn’t overgrow its space, but given enough space, like outdoors, it can grow to over 3 m tall.

It will be finished flowering in 7-8 weeks and can yield about 65-150 g per plant indoors, 400 g per square metre under a 600w light. Grown outdoors, it needs that warm environment such as can be found in Italy or North Africa. With enough sun, food and water, this tree can yield over 150 g per plant.

Generally, the buds from Special Kush are small and tight nuggets of frosty goodness which are spread all over the plant. The smoke carries a very hash-like taste with a full body stone present from its Indica background. This is a simple and basic plant, with good smoke, available in a feminized seed for a low price.

A quick germinating and vigorous, strong plant. needs height, topping or LST would be essential. Amazing amount of buds on the branches however its quite a challenge to trim them.

A very, earthy 'old school' Kush smell and flavour, and a very pleasant smooth hitter, and one I would certainly this grow again and am going to try a few more of their strains.

The seeds are good quality and at a bargain price.
