Vanilla Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid, cultivated for the first time in an Amsterdam seed bank. Combining a stunning aroma and intense soothing effect, this strain won second place at the 2009 High Times Cannabis Cup. Not much is known about the exact genetics of these cannabis seeds; however, it is most likely a cross between Afghani and South Asian Indica.
Even though Vanilla Kush has an average-to-high THC content, it primarily affects the body. Users have reported a state of deep relaxation and mental clarity. As a result, Vanilla Kush is mostly used as a night-time strain or as a potent way to minimize chronic pain.
Vanilla Kush is an easy to grow strain, as it is naturally sturdy and disease-resistant. Like most indica-dominant plants, it grows bushy and short with dark-green leaves, reaching 2 feet in height max. Its plentiful branches make it an excellent choice for Sea of Green and Screen of Green training methods, to encourage even canopy distribution. Indoors, the plant will flower in 8-9 weeks, while outdoor growers can expect to harvest around late September.
In terms of yield, Vanilla Kush seeds will produce a respectable 1.5 oz./sq.ft. indoors, and about 9 oz. per plant outdoors. This strain grows equally well in both settings. Outdoor growers who buy Vanilla Kush seeds should note that the strain does best in warm and dry climates.
Character & Flavor
Vanilla Kush grows rapidly, providing you with healthy yields of dense green buds covered with a nice frosting of trichomes, topped off by beautiful red and gold pistils. The nugs are soft to the touch and break down easily, so you don’t necessarily need a grinder.
The taste profile and aroma of this fast-flowering Afghan strain are among its most attractive traits. The overpowering scent of wild vanilla and pine, as well as strong hints of lavender, translate into a creamy and pungent taste when vaped or smoked.
The potent effects of Vanilla Kush make it an excellent choice for various health issues, both physical and mental. The strain has been especially popular with people who suffer from chronic pain, as it can both soothe the body and relax the mind with its long-lasting and relaxing high effect. Growers suffering from insomnia also prefer to cultivate high-quality Vanilla Kush seeds, as the strain can make you sleepy in higher doses. The effects of Vanilla Kush resemble CBD strains, even though it has high THC.
Due to its high potency, this hybrid might induce some less pleasant side-effects to users, especially when ingested in high amounts. Classics such as dry mouth, thirst, and red eyes are to be expected, while newbies might also experience feelings of dizziness and anxiety.
