Special Kush 1
Special Kush 1 by Royal Queen Seeds is the “resurrection” of an old school Kush strain that loves to grow in the wild and then it fills all available space and reaches and exceeds 3m height. Indoors, this 50-50 Indica/Sativa hybrid requires 7-8 weeks of flowering to produce its small and tight nuggets. Expect an average yield of 400g/m² and a very hash-like taste.
The feminized Special Kush 1 by Royal Queen Seeds is a 50-50 Sativa/Indica, but it grows like an Indica and fills all the space she can get, so give her all you’ve got – especially when cultivated outdoors, where this “resurrection” of an old school Kush strain exceeds 3 meters in height, reaching full maturity in late September. The first ever Kush strains had been named by their origin as in Hindu Kush, a mountain region in between Afghanistan into Pakistan.
Special Kush 1 by Royal Queen Seeds is an easy to grow and novice friendly good yielder, you can expect an average yield of 400g/m² (under a 600W lamp)- and she requires only 7-8 weeks to finish the flowering period. The main umbel is large, while the buds are small and tight and the plant develops them all over her.
Special Kush 1 is to Indica varieties what Haze means to Sativa. Much like skunk, kush is a term which can be used to describe a whole lineage of cannabis plants. We use the term Indica today to describe a type of plant which is found naturally (indigenous to) in the India Region. At that time all plants were called Cannabis Sativa, but there was something very different about these varieties which required discrimination into another category, named Indica due to the region where they were first discovered.
Although we now know that Indicas are indigenous to more countries than just India, not only has the term remained, but the pattern of naming weeds after the locations of their discovery has remained also. The first ever Kush weeds that appeared were named in homage to the Hindu Kush, a mountain region which stretches across from Afghanistan into Pakistan.
Special Kush 1 likes to grow wild as if in the mountains of Afghanistan; this means it will fill up any space it can. Indoors, care should be taken that it doesn’t overgrow its space, but given enough space, like outdoors, it can grow to over 3 m tall.
It will be finished flowering in 7-8 weeks and can yield about 65-150 g per plant indoors, 475 g per square metre under a 600w light. Grown outdoors, it needs that warm environment such as can be found in Italy or North Africa. With enough sun, food and water, this tree can yield over 550 g per plant.
