With the cult cannabis strains, you often have to look for effects caused (the hazy spirit familiar to the watchers of Haze), or even their breeder (Sam the Skunkman for Skunks) to understand what earned them their name. The kush family, on the contrary, quite simply derives its surname from its geographical origins, and especially of a massif of Afghan and Pakistani mountains: theHindu Kush, or Hindi Kush, depending on the spellings.
Well beyond their family tree, the Kush are therefore distinguished by primitive characteristics that they inherit from wild plants growing in the Himalayan regions. There the Kush grows naturally, which gives the plants a certain resistance to their environment, making them very often stronger and more stable than varieties created in the laboratory.
Physically, a Kush can be recognized by density of its buds and his bushy appearance. It is also not uncommon to find purple reflections on its leaves, as well as pistils that can alternate between brown, orange or bronze.
Kush CBD: 100% legal light cannabis
In the wild, a classic cannabis plant offers an impressive bunch of cannabinoids, molecules acting naturally on our bodies. Where the shoe pinch in the case of the legal market is that the most widely produced cannabinoid in nature is the THC. However, it is considered narcotic by European law, since it is responsible for psychotropic effects.
On the contrary, cannabidiol, or CBD, exhibits almost opposite effects in relaxing its consumers, while avoiding any hovering effect. Distressing and not presenting no known major side effects, therefore, CBD is perfectly legal and increasingly sought after, including cannabis enthusiasts, for some formerly followers of the original cult strains, including many Kush.
