Apple Kush is a strain that enthusiasts can enjoy any time of the day. In low dosages, it could be a wake-and-bake companion that could hasten the completion of one’s To Do Lists. It clears the mind too, allowing for better alignment of goals and thought processes.
Complementing the initial head high, on the other hand, is its soothing body buzz. Although intense, it does not at all lock users to the couch. It provides a gentle flow of energy that complements the productivity. However, toking a bit more than the moderate amount will lead to a sedating comedown that tucks one in right to bed.
Its dreamy cerebral effects, as well as invigorating palate, hails from Sour Diesel. The Sativa-leaning bud energizes the mind and the body, mitigating stress, pain, and depression. Moreover, its long-lasting effects mean a temporary break from psychological distress.
Its sedating comedown and relaxing Indica effects, on the other hand, is likely linked to its other parent Pure Kush. It induces a light pressure that kneads the muscles free of the tiredness and stress. Moreover, it has an impressive growing profile and passes on it ssturdiness.

Apple Kush has an overwhelming scent of unripe apples. Adding to the sourness is a chemical aroma of diesel. Upon combustion, however, a sweet floral undertone counteracts the tangy profile.
The strain may induce some coughing at the first puff. It has sharp notes of diesel paired with sour overtones of apples. It later develops into a sweet floral flavor that intensifies on the exhale.
Apple Kush contains moisture-inhibiting cannabinoids that induce a dry spell. It is especially noticeable in the eyes and mouth although the offshoots are likely mild. Another condition that users may experience is greening out, a condition characterized by dizziness and anxiety as a result of stimulated senses. Most of the time, however, it is limited to a headache though one should still toke the strain in moderation.
One of the greatest adversaries to a happy life is psychological distress. Although the latter would need professional mental help, Apple Kush could provide temporary relief. It has an uplifting head high that momentarily subjugates the symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
It also has stress-relieving qualities. Its cerebral and physical effects work together to uplift the mood, calm the nerves, and soothe away tension. Meanwhile, its subtle invigoration removes fatigue and keeps tiredness at bay.
In high levels, the psychoactive compound also turns into a natural analgesic. It soothes all the aches and pains of each nook and cranny of the body. Its soothing effects bring relaxation to the muscles as well, preventing cramps, contractions, and spasms. Not to mention, compared to opioid-based drugs, there are lesser side effects that come with it.
People with sleep problems will find an unlikely reprieve in Apple Kush as well. It has sedating properties that not only quicken the onset of drowsiness but also enhances the quality and quantity of sleep. In all likelihood, patients dealing with insomnia among others will fall into a deep, unencumbered slumber.
Apple Kush is a remarkable Sativa-leaning strain. It is not only sturdy, but also highly resistant to many elements that would otherwise have toppled the plant. It thrives almost anywhere – in a dedicated tent, grow room, greenhouses, and gardens or farms.
An indoor growing environment has its advantages. Breeders have near-full control of growing factors such as lighting, temperature, and humidity. Moreover, provisions could be made to accommodate any additional needs the plant may have as well as installation optional but beneficial life support equipment such as a small fan that cast a light breeze or a 600-watt HID lights during the flowering period.
There is little to no deviation with regard growing Apple Kush either. But growers may supplement the feeding and nutrition practices such as boosters that will improve bud production. Growers with knowledge of advanced growing techniques like the Screen of Green which keep the plant short and reduce the vegetative period without sacrificing yields. One may also pair this with another method called Topping which removes the top budding sites early on so that multiple budding sites could grow from the area that has been topped.
Outdoor cultivation is also possible. Apple Kush thrives best in areas like the Mediterranean where it is sunny and slightly windy. However, it will grow equally well in the northern hemisphere despite the lower temperatures and short days due to its hardiness.
Indoors, Apple Kush has a flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks. It produces between 18 to 21 ounces of buds per square meter once ready for harvest.
Apple Kush usually flowers around the last few days of September to the early days of October. Although, growers could extend the flowering period up to the second or third week. Yields usually weigh around 14 to 18 ounces of buds per plant at chop down.
