American Kush Strain

For decades, the cannabis trade is a booming underground industry. Its medical benefits though is indisputable. For that reason, more territories and states worldwide have or will soon legalize its use. It is not surprising then to see more breeders entering the market with new hybrids. One such strain is the American Kush.

Alphakronik Genes (AKG) developed American Kush using two mostly Indica strains. First, the breeder used a hybrid they developed previously, the heavy hitting Sin City Kush. To tone it down a little bit, it was paired with the gentler Pre-98 Bubba Kush.

Like its predecessors, the Indica-dominant American Kush packs an insane amount of THC. Perfect for use at the end of a tiring day, American Kush can quickly put users in deep relaxation.

However, that is not the case with American Kush. Almost as soon as a euphoric cerebral high set in, an electrifying sensation travels down the spine and spreads all over the body.

      American Kush may not be the ideal strain for beginners in growing cannabis. One reason is that it requires a lot of attention and maintenance. With that said, it is also a sturdy plant in that it can tolerate changes in the temperature. Also, to ensure better light penetration and air circulation, pruning its leaves is necessary.

      AKG recommends feeding the plant with a higher than average amount of nitrogen in the first three weeks. Only then is phosphorous and potassium increased in preparation for its transition.

      Flowering Time


      American Kush grows like a typical Indica plant. It does have a somewhat quicker flowering period of 6 to 8 weeks. Once harvested, it should provide up to 12 ounces of buds per square meter.


      American Kush, grown in the backyard or the garden, thrives best in a dry and warm climate. In most cases, the flowering period should begin before the end of October. It is quite generous in that it can produce at least 12 ounces of buds or more per plant.
