Rainbow Kush seeds are fairly easy to grow and since they are feminized seeds, they are ready for harvesting in 8-9 weeks. Additionally, the plant can be grown both indoors and outdoors, and it’s best to do it in a Sea of Green (SOG) method to stimulate the flowering early on.
The best part of growing these marijuana seeds is the high yield. With yields of up to 3 ounces per square footage, it’s a favorite among growers. Furthermore, the plant is full of bright colors that resemble the rainbow, hence the name.
To get the most out of your plant, feed the soil a mixture of soft rock phosphate, sea kelp, bat guano, cottonseed meal, and natural potash. This specific mix of fertilizers works best for this specific strain, so make sure you can get them before you buy Rainbow Kush seeds from our store.
When planting Rainbow Kush seeds, you can expect to get buds with a wide range of colors and coated in sparkling crystals. Still, the best part is not the magnificent and psychedelic appearance. Famous for its strong pine smell with notes of coffee, it’s one of the most aromatic strains you can indulge in. To add to that, the flavor is also rich with pine and a slightly spicy aftertaste.
As for the effects, the indica dominance allows for deep relaxation when smoked, which is well balanced with uplifting cerebral effects. Best of all, this strain won’t leave you in a “weed coma”.
With THC levels ranging between 16% and 20%, Rainbow Kush seeds are suitable for medicinal use as well. Most people use this strain to help them ease their anxiety and improve their mood. It also has beneficial effects for medical patients that suffer from nausea or poor appetite.
The CBD content, on the other hand, is too low for treating seizures and other conditions that respond to CBD.
Other than the usual dry eyes and dry mouth, there are no negative side effects when consuming the Rainbow Kush strain. Both of these can be easily managed, and are to be expected when smoking any marijuana strain.
Unlike many other strains, however, this one won’t leave you in a “couch lock” and it can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
