By now you have probably heard the slang term “Kush” used to refer to cannabis in general. Kush, however, is one of the original landrace strains deriving from the Hindu Kush mountain region of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Northwest India.
Kush has been a term heavily popularized in western culture, specifically in California. OG Kush as you may have heard in the past does not actually mean Original Gangster but rather, Original Kush to symbolize its landrace heritage.
This strain is said to have been perfected by legacy grower Josh Del Rosso and continues to be a legacy market favourite.
The reason many people enjoy Kush strains is partly because of the traditional and stereotypical effects that users report experiencing. IT will give you that relaxed and sedative high that is perfect to experience after a long day of hustle and bustle in the city.
Many users report that Kush strains help them fall asleep calmly. Another reason for its popularity is owed to the hip hop industry for the popularization of the Kush name in songs such as Dr.Dre’s Kush song featuring Akon and Snoop Dogg. Kush has become an absolutely adored staple of west coast hip hop and continues to reign supreme.
There are many variations of the Kush strain that are currently on market. Strains such as Pink Kush, Purple Kush, Master Kush, Hindu Kush, Afghan Kush, etc. are extremely common in the culture. Next week we will be covering the specifics of Purple Kush and its impact on stoner culture as a while.
The preferred method for smoking kush is typically through joints and blunts, mainly due to the popularity of kush in street culture in general and the lack of availability of pipes, bongs, and vaporizers at the time of its sudden rise and popularity.
We highly recommend trying a kush strain paired with a Kush Herbal Wrap to roll a perfect hemp-derived blunt that’s sure to get the whole party lit.
