DescriptionRoyal Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid obtained from the cross of two classical cultivars. It was bred by G13 Labs, a European seed company responsible for many flavor-focused cultivars. Royal Kush is a cross of the hybrid Skunk #1 and an Afghani indica landrace. According to the cannabis testing lab Analytical 360, flowers of Royal Kush have been found to have THC levels of 15% to as much as 25%. Royal Kush has medium to large flowers that adhere in elongated buds. The buds have the tight and dense structure typical of many other indica varieties. The leaves are of a vibrant spring green color with yellowish pistils threaded throughout. Certain phenotypes also have shades of purple, a color that comes about when anthocyanin pigments in the plant are expressed by unusually cold temperatures during the growing process. The outer surfaces and inner crevices of the flowers are covered by milky white trichomes and give the buds a sticky, resinous texture that makes them difficult to break up by hand. Royal Kush has the full-bodied incense aroma of its parent Afghani cultivar, with notes of pine and sandalwood. On combustion, 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. Like Skunk #1, this is a very pungent variety. Royal Kush’s full-bodied physical relaxing effects slowly grow on the user. In the minutes following consumption, users may feel a tingle in the head and shoulders, that gradually spreads through the limbs and torso. Psychedelic effects like visual distortions or a sense of time dilation are common. Its strong sedative properties make Royal Kush a valuable strain for medical cannabis patients as well. Its suppression of stress and tension is considered a great temporary treatment for acute symptoms of stress, anxiety, and even PTSD. It’s also deemed useful in treating anything from muscle soreness to entrenched nerve pain as the result of conditions like fibromyalgia and Parkinson’s Disease. After increased consumption this cultivar can bring users into a restful sleep, providing relief from insomnia. Royal Kush is also known to be an effective appetite stimulant. Royal Kush is considerer a potent and long-lasting cultivar, even for experienced cannabis users. Consequently, beginner smokers should practice moderation. Royal Kush can be grown indoors or outdoors, although successful outdoor cultivation depends on a consistently warm, semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures in the 21°C range. Royal Kush is a manageable crop indoors, where it reaches maximum heights of 60 to 120 cm. Growers should trim any broad fan leaves in order to let light in and stimulate low-growing flowering nodes. Growers looking to bring out this strain’s colorful, eye-catching potential should also expose plants to colder than average temperatures late in the vegetative stage. Royal Kush flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and is ready for harvest in late September when grown outdoors. It offers growers a moderate to high yield of about 46 grams of flower per square meter of plant when grown indoors and 1000 grams of flower per single plant when grown outdoors.
