What’s the first thing when you hear about the three kings? Does it remind you of one dark night when three kings followed the brightest star in the sky to finally arrive and see you know who? The birth of Jesus was followed by the angels singing the hosanna. Obviously, there was a lot of joy there.

Speaking of joy, that is one thing that our version of the three kings would bring. But more than that, it is the cerebral high that gives makes you feel uplifted and body relaxation that makes the 3 King strain special.

Not much is known about the origin of the 3 Kings, except that it is a three-way cross between Headband, Sour Diesel, and OG Kush. Perhaps there is a truth to the divinity of this strain, huh? Regardless, it is available on the market, but so far, the growers have not released a lot of information about its lineage. As a matter of fact, no one could determine who the original breeder of this strain was.

The general sense of elation is also another effect of this strain, which results in a happier you. While it is Sativa-dominant, its Indica side also complements well by providing for physical body relaxation. It is its ability to put smokers in a relaxed state that makes this strain quite popular.

The 3 Kings may not be the kings of the ancient world who brought gifts to Jesus, but it surely is one that brings you the gift of glee. This is a strain that is excellent for daytime use and one that could also liven up a social gathering.


Some smokers, even the experienced ones who have tried different strains, may be taken aback initially by its smell. Not that it has a foul odor, far from that, this strain is actually pleasant enough with an earthy pine fragrance.


3 Kings is smooth and retains a sweet aftertaste of pine with an undertone of diesel. Perhaps it may be due to the quality of the buds, but some smokers have also described the taste as like being more of hash rather than Kush. Nevertheless, most smokers tend to like this strain.

Adverse Reaction

Okay, let’s see how well you know your cannabis strains and the effects of smoking it. If there is an adverse reaction, what symptoms would it be?

Dry mouth.

All cannabis strains cause one to feel dry in the mouth. So, it’s not really a big deal, is it?

But be careful. Once you are good, then you are good. Smoke too much and the very benefits it gives you might worsen. For instance, one of the reasons why a lot of people use cannabis is to relieve stress and relax. With the 3 Kings, smoke too much and you might experience heightened anxiousness and paranoia.


So, how does a strain that has qualities that lift your spirit and helps your body relax find medical use? Easy. Those suffering from too much stress and anxiety disorders including depression can benefit. Although consuming cannabis can calm you down, the reasons why you feel stressed or worse have root causes. Until you deal with those causes and take care of the root of the problem, they are not going away. Smoking 3 Kings only provides a couple of hours of relief for you to manage your emotion.

The other possible medical uses of 3 Kings also includes management of mild chronic pains and gastrointestinal problems such as nausea and even lack of appetite. It is quite common for many strains that once its effects start to fade away, consumers might feel hungry.

3 Kings is not recommended for nighttime use as it does have a stimulating effect, and most likely, it would be difficult to fall asleep. If you need a strain to help you sleep, or if you are dealing with insomnia, then look for another strain.


We know about the dark green buds with brown hairs and trichomes can be seen, but we do not have enough information on growing the 3 Kings. As such, we can make intelligent assumptions here. Due to the location of its availability, this strain most likely would thrive in warm or temperate climate. One tip we gathered is that the buds are quite heavy, hence there is a need to provide ample support as it grows.

Flowering Time

Grown indoors using the basic recommendations for taking care of cannabis plants, the yield is expected to be in the high range of 17 to 21 ounces per square meter with a flowering time of 9 to 10 weeks.

If in fact, the warmer or temperate climate proves to be suitable, then the 3 Kings should be ready sometime during mid to late-October and have a yield of around 24 ounces per plant.
