Green Kush Marijuana Strain is an almost perfectly balanced hybrid; being considered slightly Indica-dominant, but only at about 1% increase in certain readings. Most cannabis consumers consider Green Kush a perfect 50/50 hybrid. With parent strains consisting of Green Crack and Purple Kush, it’s no wonder this hybrid is a well-balanced strain that offers both a body and head high, without being too powerful in one area.
Understanding Green Kush Marijuana means understanding its parent strains. On one end of the parent strain spectrum, you have Green Crack; known for its pure Sativa qualities including its sharp energy, and stimulating high focus. It’s other parent strain Purple Kush is known for the exact opposite and is praised for its pure Indica qualities. Purple Kush provides strong body relaxation with a blissful mind buzz.
When you mix two pure strains together, the leftover product is going to be a pure hybrid that is sought after by many for both recreational and medical purposes.
Recommended Time of Use
The dose consumers take is going to be a big factor in the effects felt. A heavier dose of this is going to be better for night-time or afternoon use, and a light dose can be good to use in the morning or early afternoon.
Those wanting a heavy body influence will want to take a higher dose, which can help them relax and unwind. A light dose can benefit those looking for a pick-me-up to help them get through a workout or give them the boost to finish work projects on time.
THC levels in this strain are lower and generally do not exceed 20%. With an average dose of this strain, users will notice a smooth head high followed closely by a quickly induced body high. Users will feel a slight body tingle, but with an overall clear head high, allowing the person to still function.
Most users typically experience the same high from the beginning to midway through, and the end of the high results in one of two ways. Either a person gets a final burst of energy or they fall into a deep sleep. It’s sort of like playing Russian roulette and users should be sure to account for either end when using Green Kush for the first time.

Growing Green Kush marijuana strain is medium to difficult. Bud nutrition is very important to this strain which means growers should take some time and do their research. The buds are dark green with a bit of mint in color, and have little tiny brown hairs found all over.
The average flowering time is 7-9 weeks and growers can expect a moderate yield of 14 oz per square meter indoor and 17 oz per plant outdoors.
The appearance of the plant includes a short and thick leaf structure with bushy branches. Since it is a smaller, more contained plant, it is very easy to grow inside.
Optimal growing will combine a warm, dry climate with overall large quantities of light.
Flavor and Aroma
Green Kush provides a pleasurable flavor from seed to bud and final consumption. A few flavors come to mind right off the bat which includes:
One flavor that doesn’t come to mind when describing the overall scent is skunk or wood. If the taste is not on the top of your marijuana checklist, then you should definitely try this one out.
Buds give off an almost pine-like scent followed by citrus and earth which gives the scent profile a bold, full smell. Smoke that is given off leaves the tongue with a fresh tic-tac taste, giving users a refreshing experience.
Being a pure hybrid means side effects from this strain are minimal. Unlike other hybrids, users don’t have to fret an onset of anxiety or paranoia from this strain. The only negative effects sometimes reported include cotton mouth and dry eyes.
Anytime marijuana is used it is smart to drink extra water to avoid cotton mouth and dehydration. Having a bottle of eye drops will not only help the dry eye problem, but will also help get rid of any red color. Even in states where weed is legal, it might not be the best idea to walk into your work meeting with eyes the color of your bosses red tie.
