Sour Kush is a potent THC producer, at its highest having been measured at a whopping 30%, making it a strain that should be approached with experience and caution. This strain was created by DNA Genetics and continues to be loved for its relaxing effects, without the brain haze.

A hybrid cross between legend strain OG Kush and Sour Diesel, Sour Kush is touted as an enjoyable citrus variant, that is uplifting and relaxing in nature, guaranteeing a good time. This slightly more indica strain is an ideal option for a wake and bake kind of day, but is also popular as a wind-down smoke.

Sour Kush is very pungent and citrus-flavored, adding to its appeal as a hybrid that is invigorating and fun. It is altogether a good choice for novice growers to cultivate, as it is relatively uncomplicated and easy to tend to, and can lead to yields that are on average quite high.
