Burmese Kush Strain

There are currently thousands of strains in the market today and hundreds are most likely added to that long list every now and then. Hence, it is almost impossible to track all of them and differentiate one from the other. However, there are certain strains that particularly make a mark due to certain reasons.

Having said that, most connoisseurs look into a strain’s lineage, strength and type of high, and cultivation information to decide on its overall quality. Hence, there are those that easily win the hearts of every cannabis fanatic and there are those that just do not make the cut.

Fortunately for this one strain called the Burmese Kush, it appears that the majority of the cannabis community have recognized and appreciated its potential. Although the strain has a partly shady lineage, its other parent, however, is a widely respected strain and Burmese Kush itself is just impressive on its own. Simply put, Burmese Kush has more than enough to offer than just a shady history.

On that note, below is a detailed information about Burmese Kush’s overall profile to give prospective users an idea of what to expect from this well-balanced hybrid.

Burmese Kush was initially bred to accurately express the mind and body buzz of both Sativa and Indica strains. The breeder responsible for its creation is the TH Seeds. The strain was created in The Netherlands where it is commonly referred to as Buku, for short, especially in Amsterdam coffee shops.

Buku is a cross between the popular medical marijuana OG Kush and an original Indica from Burma with an unknown genetic origin. Despite its rather vague lineage, Buku is actually an award-winning strain that was included in the HighTimes Top Ten Strains of 2007.
