Kings Kush strain is an extremely popular variety of marijuana flower. The Kings Kush weed strain was originally bred by the world-renowned cannabis lab known as Green House Seeds. Legend has it that the Kings Kush cannabis strain was bred by crossing OG Kush with the rare Grape strain. The exact date when the strain was first developed isn’t public knowledge so far.
Kings Kush indica has strong effects that are well known and extremely well received. The strain is notorious for having a slow creeping effect that doesn’t hit you all at the same time. The bud of Kings Kush indica strain also stands out as well, as you can recognize them by the shiny and almost metallic sparkle that they give off during their final flowering state.
The strain typically carries a THC potency of around 20 percent or less. The dried buds smell fantastic, taking on a sweet and sour aroma that is very unique and unmistakable. Upon closer examination, you can even smell faint tints of grape, tangy oranges, and possibly even lavender. Once you smell this fantastic bud you’ll immediately want to light up and give it a try. Upon holding a lighter to it, you’ll soon be awash in a cloud of fragrant heaven that almost resembles that of burning incense. If you live near anyone not fond of the smell of smoked cannabis, then the lovely smell of this burning bud might just change their mind.
The flowering time for King’s Kush is typically around 9 or 9 and a half weeks. Upon reaching the flowering stage, the plant will start to develop purple and blue veins on the leaves and stems. Faint blues and purple colors will also be evident in the flowers and dried buds as well.

Other effects the strain is known for include feeling uplifted, creative, and joyous. Overall this is a fantastic strain if you are interested in cozying up to a good book, doing some low key creative work, or taking a peaceful and long-lasting nap.
Sample submitted: “King’s Kush” dried cannabis flowers.
Visual Inspection: Free from visible contamination and foreign matter.
Activated vs non-activated: activated cannabinoids are non-acidic (neutral) and are the form utilized by the human brain/ body. Activation occurs via heating (smoking, vaporizing, cooking). Cannabinoids in the natural plant are acidic (non-activated) and need to be converted to their neutral form in order to be utilized by the human body. Therefore one would expect fresh cannabis buds to contain mainly non-activated cannabinoids. Processed materials (baked goods, heated extracts) should be higher in the activated forms.
Absent Cannabinoids: if a cannabinoid or terpene is blank, it is not necessarily absent but below the limit of detection by the detector (usually less than 0.01%).
Cannabis Potency Summary Table:
Three tests of each sample were analysed and summarised below:

Δ8 THC (activated)
THC-Acid (not activated)
*THC total (THC-Acid THC)

Activated Cannabinoid Total:
•when reporting totals, acidic cannabinoids are multiplied by 0.877 to account for loss of mass from decarboxylation upon heating (activating)
