Walker Kush likes to take its time before delivering its effects. However, once it begins, it hits users with a rush of euphoria that crushes stress. It swarms the mind and clears away negativity. In its place, there is an innate sense of happiness that both enhances the mood and uplifts the spirits.
30 minutes to an hour after the initial onset, a heaviness settles on the limbs. It relaxes users first, ironing out creases in the temples before eventually kneading the muscles. Its soothing properties eventually intensify until users feel the need to lie down on the bed or lounge on the couch. In all likelihood, one will end up falling into a deep, unencumbered slumber.
Although it has notable cerebral qualities, it is better used at night. Its sedating comedown can be counterproductive to the workday. Although, if it were a free day, then users may consume the strain by all means.

Users may need to be wary about some potential dizziness and anxiety. There is also the chance of a headache although, most of the time, it is superseded by the usual dry eyes and cottonmouth. it is mild and barely noticeable, but users may down a few glasses of water to stay hydrated.
Stress is an issue that users should address at its earliest stages. Otherwise, it could develop into a chronic condition that leads to the early development, onset, and exacerbation of other health issues that affect patients.

As such, people with insomnia will find relief in Walker Kush.
Walker Kush is an impressive plant that could grow virtually anywhere. However, it is best cultivated indoors where growers can easily manage the environment by adjusting factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity. Provisions for dispensable but beneficial life support equipment such as an extra small fan and carbon filter, could also be made.
The predominantly Indica plant itself is relatively easy to grow too. It does not require any deviation from the usual growing methods, feeding, and nutrition. However, it will benefit from a booster that will assist in bud production.
Growers could also place it under the Sea of Green setup. This method gently coaxes the main cola and shortens the vegetative phase without affecting yields. It also maximizes space. Pruning may be necessary though. After all, placing at least four plants in a single square meter could affect air circulation and light distribution. By removing certain branches and thinning out its foliage, one could improve aeration and illumination in the lower nodes.
The strain could also be cultivated outdoors. There is more space for the plants to grow and spread out. It also has access to natural sunlight, allowing it to grow and yield vigorously. If any, growers will only have to ensure that no pests ravage the designated growing area and that there are no obstructions that hinder the light.
It takes Walker Kush between 8 to 10 weeks of flowering to produce 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter. Yields could be higher, especially when using boosters and subjecting it to the advanced growing techniques.
Walker Kush fully matures around the last week of October although flowers could be harvested around the second or third week of the same month. Growers can expect at least 16 ounces of buds per plant under the right conditions.
