The definition of Quantum is “a discrete quantity of energy, proportional in magnitude to the frequency of the radiation it represents.” Breeders have named the Quantum Kush marijuana strain perfectly, because effects felt from this strain match the definition spot on. A surge of energy radiates throughout the consumer’s body, leaving them ready to take on a day full of tasks. The THC content measures in at 30% or higher, making it one of the absolute top Sativa strains on the market to date.
There is a little bit of a hometown turf battle going on when asked who originally bred this strain. TGA Subcool Seeds and Homegrown Natural Wonders are commonly credited on being the creators of the original strain. Who is actually the first, remains unknown.
One thing that can be recognized, and is up for no debate by anyone, are the parent strains, which is a cross between the Sweet Irish Kush and Timewreck strains.
Sweet Irish Kush
Bred by TGA Subcool Seeds, this strain has a medium to high THC level, measuring between 16% – 27%, however, this is a prominently an Indica dominant strain. The buds give off a sour and sweet citrus order. Just one dose of this, and it hits users instantly, leaving a buzzy, lightheaded high. Enjoy the clarity while you can, because the high soon turns into a hazy high, that leaves people in a bit of a fog. Used medically for treating stress, migraines, and pain.
Bred by TGA genetics, TImewreck is a Sativa dominant hybrid with a 70/30 split. Known for its sour and citrus flavor, with undertones of earth, wood, sandalwood, and sweet tones. Timewreck won the High Times Cup – winning the THC Content Award, which is why it is named Timewreck. A bit of this will cause time dilation, and throw people into a world of lost time. In smaller amounts, it can give users a proper creative and energetic high. Used medically to treat depression, fatigue, and lack of appetite.
With the two-parent strains having notoriety for their THC content, its no wonder the Quantum is one of the worlds top THC strains.
The monstrous amount of THC in this, will without a doubt, leave users in a psychedelic state with a hardcore trip. Visions might appear to you that aren’t there, sounds will take on different frequencies, and things will even taste different. If you have ever seen Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, a hefty dose of this will leave you feeling just like Johnny Depp’s character. Haven’t seen this movie? Google it, and the images will explain it all.
Quantum is not recommended for first-time users, or seasoned users who don’t deal well with THC. A lovely cerebral high will instantly fill the mind with optimism, cheerful vibes, and erase any adverse thoughts. These feelings will soon turn into an extraordinary high that takes you into outer space. You might have trouble organizing thoughts, and putting proper ideas together.
While your mind is up in space, your body will be down on earth, sunken deep into the sea. Your body won’t just feel like it’s on the couch, but it will feel like it is inside the couch. An intense body high can keep users from losing their minds in the head high.
In smaller doses, this strain will provide a productive high, that mimics OCD behavior. People may start tasks, and won’t stop until they are completed.
Depending on the dose you take, and the activities you have planned, this can be used morning, afternoon, or night. Make sure you don’t have anything planned when you try this for the first time, or you might end up being the friend who bails and never shows up.
High THC levels are often sought-after by medical patients. The head high is excellent for mental ailments such as stress, depression, and anxiety.
Stress can come in the form of mental or physical tension which is brought on by thoughts, or particular situations. It is a response to when our brain thinks you are in a challenging environment. The Quantum marijuana strain works as a third party helper, that tells your mind everything is okay, and it doesn’t need to react.
Depression is a mental disorder that is typically possesses these symptoms:
- Loss of interest in activities
- Appetite or weight changes
- Reckless behavior
- Feelings of helplessness
Depression can be brought on by changes in the brain function and activity of individual neural circuits inside the brain. Quantum Kush also manipulates the brain receptors, leaving behind confidence, hope, dreams, and a light for the future. It can help a person put their life into perspective, and gives the brain a new sense of purpose.
Anxiety is a more common occurrence that affects almost all humans. The severity may be more prominent in others, but we have all felt it at least once or twice. It is the primary affliction we feel when we have intense, excessive persistent worry or fear, about daily situations. Public speaking, taking tests, meeting new people, or money changes can all be triggers for anxiety.
The Quantum Kush strain enters deep inside the brain, and whispers encouraging thoughts reminding people:
- Everything will be okay
- You are so much stronger than you think
- You prepared for this; you got it
- Forget plan B because plan A will work
This strain essentially combats anxiety by being your cheerleader.
This strain is further used to help treat pain, aches, strains of the muscle, and insomnia. Not recommended to be used as a therapeutic treatment for fatigue.
Quantum Kush is best paired with activities that don’t require much attention or movement. While you might not enter outer space, you still will have trouble piecing together coherent thoughts. Don’t use this before special life moments like significant birthday parties, weddings, work events, or anything where you have to operate motorized machines.
Instead, pair this with vegged out activities like binge-watching movies. The THC in this strain will leave you viewing movies in a totally new light. Movies you typically find un-amusing will leave you rethinking the meaning of life and its lessons, like what is really eating Gilbert’s grapes and where exactly did Nemo go?
Since your senses are heightened, pair it with a spa day to experience something you will never forget. Services like massages, manicures, and pedicures will feel intense.
These buds are ripe and give off some dank smells. It is not a marijuana strain you want to use if you are trying to be discrete. If you have nosey neighbors, they will come knocking on your door.
Wood, sweet, tropical, and citrus give the Quantum Kush strain an intoxicating scent and flavor, throughout the entire experience. The smoke is thick in density and will feel full inside the mouth. Don’t let the thick smoke fool you though, it tastes smooth, and won’t leave you with a coughing fit.
Buds are green in size and are covered in so many trichomes they look like Mr. Freeze blasted them.
Much like the creator is blanketed in mystery, so is the growing information. Through word of mouth, a few growing practices have been passed around.
This plant can be grown indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse. Conditions should mimic a Mediterranean climate for ample growth and production.
It will mimic a Sativa plant and can grow up to 6 feet in height with proper early topping. If you choose to grow indoors, you will need to stay on the topping, so branches don’t bend, snap, or break. Broken branches will kill or stunt the plant’s growth.
Topping the plant will force it to grow a bit bushier than tall, which seems to provide a better quality bud. Since this strain doesn’t have much growing information, it might be prudent to practice extra special growing practices such as:
- Using nutrient packed soil
- Extra ventilation tests
- Correct water (bottled, tap, and filtered all play into how your strain will grow and all affect the buds)
- Carbon Filter
- Grow tents
As always, consult forums and youtube videos if you have any questions about how your crop is growing.
If grown indoors, expect roughly 8 to 9 weeks for the Quantum plant to be ready for harvest. Growers should have an estimated yield of 16 to 20 ounces per square meter.
Outdoors, the best estimate growers have noted, would yield around 24 ounces per plant.
Once you try this strain, you are sure to want to dabble in other related strains. If you enjoy Quantum Kush you are going to love:
- Gorilla Girl
- Black Widow
- Night Terror OG
- Keester Kush
- The Doctor
- Black Diamond
- U.K. Cheese
- Blackberry Pie
- White Durban
- Mango Durban
A few of these strains will have similar effects, aromas, and even appearance. Do your research before you go to the dispensary, so you know which one you want, based off of what you are specifically looking for.
If you are debating between a few, ask the worker at your local dispensary, or just pick up a little bit of each.

Anytime you are putting something into your body, side effects may ensue. Two of the most basic negative effects almost all marijuana can have include dry eyes and a dry mouth. To combat this, simply drink plenty of water and have moisturizing eye drops on hand.
The high THC in this strain can come with its own set of side effects or adverse reactions. Increased anxiety or paranoia can ensue in large doses, due to the makeup of your brain. Small doses can help these feelings, and large doses can amplify those feelings, making them worse.
Hunger, commonly referred to as the munchies, will leave users reaching for every snack in their fridge or pantry. This can lead to increased weight, sluggish energy, and overall bloating. To combat this have plenty of healthy snacks on hand such as pretzels, fruit, veggie straws, and vegetables.
Much like other sleeping aids, this strain can leave you feeling sluggish and lethargic in the morning. You may want to nap more throughout the day, so set aside time, or it will disrupt your schedule.
Other side effects due to high THC may include dizziness, headaches, or impaired judgment. Hide your phone if you start to feel really high. Remember, drunk texting is a real thing, and so is high texting. Quantum Kush may make you text your ex due to the happy and forgiving feelings you have at the moment, but once you come off your high, you are going to regret it instantly!
