CBD Kush

CBD Kush

Strength

There is up to 8% THC in CBD Kush and 8% CBD.  The reason we say “up to 8%” is because the THC:CBD ratio can be anything from 1:1 to 1:4, which, obviously varies the effect slightly although any of these combinations are likely to be acceptable to the medical cannabis community.  In short, at its lowest level, there is so little THC that you will hardly even notice it, whereas at its highest level, you will receive a small dose of fast-acting pain relief and a slight lift to your mood.  In either case, CBD Kush tends to make itself felt in the head at first.  Depending on the level of THC, this may mean anything from a slight tingling to a warm, happy feeling.  Then you will start to feel intense comfort and relaxation spread through your core body and then into your limbs.  Your mind will also clear and settle, which is why this cannabis strain is often recommended for people who need help to achieve calmness as well as for physical conditions.  We recommend keeping this strain for night-time use.

Yield

As an Indica dominant, CBD Kush is a conveniently short and bushy little plant. It has a growing range of about 0.9M (indoor minimum) and 1M (outdoor maximum). Indoors it will yield about 450g/m2 to 500g/m2 and outdoors it will yield about 600g to 800g per marijuana plant. The bad news for beginners is that they should expect to harvest the lower end of that range. The good news for beginners is that they should expect to be able to collect a decent harvest without too much difficulty. This strain is very vigorous and robust, with good resistance to mould – assuming you ensure decent air flow of course.

Speed

Indoors CBD Kush needs 9 to 10 weeks of flowering time and outdoors it will be ready around early to mid October. As is generally the case, if you want the biggest yields, you will need to allow for that extra week. If, however, you want to harvest as quickly as possible, for example, to ensure you get your crop before the weather does, then you should still get a decent result.
CBD Kush is equally suited to both indoor and outdoor growing as long as it can be kept warm, dry and well-lit. Indoor growers should be careful to resist the temptation to overcrowd their growing space and remember that each marijuana plant will need space to grow outwards as well as upwards. It is also recommended to have effective odour control in place, especially if you are planning to grow more than one or two plants. Similarly, outdoor growers will need to think about prevailing winds if they want to stay on good terms with their neighbours.

Taste

In terms of taste, CBD Kush is, understandably, very similar to Kandy Kush. The base is a combination of wood, earth and deep, rich spices. Moving upwards, you begin to experience the sweetness of both fruits and candy, or, perhaps, sweet baking. There’s also more than a hint of dankness. Top notes are of citrus, and more spice. The aroma itself is essentially typical Kush with slight undertones of diesel, a spicy body and, again, a touch of citrus, this time blended with menthol pine. One point to remember is that, as is common with Kush-based strains, the smoke can be pretty powerful, which could be an issue if you have a sensitive throat (or share a space with someone who does). The obvious solution would be to switch to vaping, for a much smoother experience, or to try edibles or topicals.

Bag Appeal

CBD Kush has a really bright, cheerful, appearance with emerald-green leaves and lots of bright orange hairs. One of the nice features of this strain is that even though the resin content is, obviously, fairly low, there’s enough of it to coat the plant with golden-coloured crystalst. Nugs are chunky and solid. They break open fairly easily, although we’d still recommend using a grinder for the very best results.

CBD Blue Shark

CBD Blue Shark

Strength

The headline figures are about 6.5% each THC and CBD but it’s worth looking a bit beyond these to get a better understanding of just why CBD Blue Shark has become so respected in the field of medical cannabis.At first glance you can see that 6.5% THC is enough to deliver some fast-acting painrelief and a noticeable lift to your mood, without being anywhere near enough to get you even remotely high. Essentially, it’s a good level to stave off chronic pain until the CBD gets to work. On that note, the 6.5% CBD is sufficient to treat a wide range of medical disorders, including pain, nausea and spasmodic conditions such as epilepsy.

What’s particularly interesting about CBD Blue Shark is that although you do get adeep stone, it isn’t as heavy as you would expect from the raw CBD figure because this strain is actually 40% Sativa, which makes everything just a little bit lighter. You’ll feel relaxed, comfortable tranquillity rather than being super-stoned. Having said that, however, we’d still keep this strain for night-time use if at all possible. If you do need CBD-rich medication for daytime use, then please remember to allow yourself sufficient recovery time before undertaking hazardous activities, such as driving.

Yield

CBD Blue Shark is a nice compact marijuana plant with a height range of about 0.9M (indoor minimum) and 1M (outdoor maximum). Indoors you can expect yields in the region of 400g/m2 to 550g/m2 and outdoors you can expect yields of between 500g and 700g per marijuana plant. Obviously, more experienced growers, who can provide their plants with the best growing conditions can expect the biggest harvests, but even novice growers should be able to collect a reasonable crop since this stain is very robust and low-maintenance. In particular it has good resistance to mould.

Speed

Another piece of good news about CBD Blue Shark is that it’s fairly quick. You’re looking at an indoor flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks and an outdoor harvest time of early/mid October. If you can give your plants that extra week, you’ll reap the benefits not only in terms of a bigger harvest but in terms of a slight improvement in the maturity of the flavour.

Having said that, if you do need to bring in your harvest quickly, to ensure that you beat the autumn frosts, for example, then you can still expect a decent harvest of high-quality buds. Speaking of autumn frosts, CBD Blue Shark will happily grow indoors or outdoors as long as you can keep it warm and dry and make sure it gets a suitable level of light. As always, remember the importance of both ventilation and odour control, especially later on in flowering, this strain has Skunk in its close background!

Taste

As you’d expect from the genetics, the base notes of CBD Blue Shark are definitely skunk/cheese and this is nicely balanced by the berry sweetness of the body. It’s not just blueberries although they are definitely there. There are definitely citrus top notes and a certain herbal edge, which is floral but slightly bitter-sweet. The aroma is quite fruity with a touch of fresh pine.

Bag Appeal

Although not, strictly speaking, bag appeal, we do rather like the appearance of CBD Blue Shark as it’s growing, this compact marijuana plant really does look like a little Christmas tree.  As it matures, it develops cheerful orange hairs and the THC content is enough for there to be a light dusting of frosty white trichomes. While these are less spectacular than on some other strains, the plus side is that the relatively low resin content makes this strain nicely straightforward to harvest.  You should be able to do it with just one pair of scissors and without having to stop to clean them all the time.

critical cbd marijuana seeds

Critical CBD

Strength

As the name implies, with Critical CBD, you can expect to get a lot of CBD from this marijuana plant. It does have a 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC. The effects are ideal for those that just want to chill and relax, without being super stoned or high. In fact, Critical CBD is mostly indica, so those who smoke, vape, or eat it can simply mellow out and unwind. While the CBD content may be off the charts, there is still a little THC in there for those that want to experience a little bit of a high. The relaxing effects of this cannabis strain, are also what makes it great for medicinal patients looking for a way to treat pain, stress, or stimulate the appetite.

Yield

Critical CBD cannabis

Critical CBD is fairly relaxed itself, growing well either indoors or outdoors and still producing a mighty yield. Harvests can bring anywhere from 500 to 600 grams of scrumptious buds per square meter. Yielding enough to keep one relaxing for a long time to come.

Speed

As an indica, CBD Critical will start off short and may even remain that way throughout the growth period. It’s something that worries a lot of growers as they watch the plants grow, but the plant will eventually start to flourish and thrive, even if it never gets to be tall. Even with the small height, this is one time when it will not affect the yield in any way and is also what makes it ideal for indoor growers.

Taste

Those looking to grow discreetly will be happy to know that Critical CBD does not give off a lot of aroma during its grow phase. But after harvest, the flavors will all come through. Those looking for a smoother smoke should know that they may not find it with this strain. At first it will give off a very pungent, gas-like taste. That diesel flavor will settle into an earthy taste that’s mixed with a little bit of pine. While some will love this flavor combination, those who are looking for a sweeter smoke won’t find it here.

Bag Appeal

Growers can expect dense, tightly packed buds that are quite hard when gently squeezed. Critical CBD may just be one of the best strains out there for medicinal users that want to feel calm and relaxed. But also don’t want to get knocked out or hyper energetic from their strain. While it’s important that those looking for a heavy psychoactive high know they won’t find it here, those looking for a way to unwind after a long day, and grow a plant that will provide huge yields, will.

michka marijuana seeds

Michka

Strength

With parents plants like Silver Pearl and Lemon Haze, Michka has between 18 and 22 percent THC, which is enough to make anyone happy.

Erring mostly on the sativa side of its lineage, one can expect to feel the classic sativa effects after consuming. You will feel happy, euphoric, energetic, and creative. Now is not the time for Netflix and chill but rather, to tend to errands that need doing, tasks around the house, or just to let your creative juices flow and guide you.

Yield

No matter how you look at it, Michka is one strain that’s going to produce the yields every grower is looking for. Those who have taken their grow setup outdoors will likely get the biggest yields, at 600 grams per square meter. That doesn’t mean that this marijuana plant can’t be taken inside. Indoors growers can expect to reap around 450 grams of beautiful beds per square meter.

Due to its sativa roots, these plants will grow very tall. However, those without the vertical space indoors can use a Screen of Green setup, which will not only help with the height, but can also increase the yield as well.

Speed

If Michka has any downside, it may just be that it takes a long time to produce the beautiful buds she’s capable of. This strain is really meant to be an indoor plant. The only exception may be those that live in a dry, hot, Mediterranean climate. This strain takes a longer time to flower, so those living in cooler climates may not have the time needed to fully grow outdoors.

As it is, this strain already takes longer to harvest than most. Those growing outdoors will find harvest times fall anywhere between the middle to the end of October. Indoors, it will take ten to twelve weeks before harvesting. Those who can wait another week or two after these timeframes will be rewarded with an even larger yield.

Taste

The taste of Michka is one of the most distinctive traits of the strain. It is very lemony and has many notes of grapefruit in there. This flavor will come through in its aroma throughout its growing period. After the curing process, buds will still keep all of those citrus flavors, but will be mixed with a hint of sweetness too.

Bag Appeal

As a sativa dominant strain, one would expect the buds to be light and airy, almost popcorn-like. However, this strain proves that it’s the exception. With this strain you’ll find that the buds are packed quite tightly and only once they’re broken open do they fully reveal their beauty.

original glue feminized by nirvana seeds

Original Glue

Strength

Original Glue isn’t for the faint of heart. It has a staggering average THC content of 18 to 25 percent. And in some cases, that could even reach up to 32 percent. While the CBD content doesn’t quite reach that amount, there is some in there, meaning that it could be a great strain for those who are thinking about trying it out for medicinal purposes.

Original Glue provides a high that may be somewhat euphoric, but quickly levels off into a happy and relaxed state of mind. The stone can become heavy, just as your body may be when you sink into the couch. Due to this effect, it’s best used for nighttime, although daytime use may also be possible, if there’s not too much to do that day.

The heavy, eyelid-drooping effects have many thinking of this cannabis strain as an indica, but it’s actually a hybrid including a mixture of both sativa and indica roots.

Yield

While this strain will do well in both indoor and outdoor settings. Those growing indoors do need to make sure that they have the room for a plant that reaches first. In these situations, a Sea of Green setup can be very useful, and will help to increase the overall yield. Indoors the strain can produce up to 18 ounces per meter squared. Outdoor growers will be delighted to find approximately 21 ounces per plant.

Speed

When grown outdoors, Original Glue is going to be ready for harvest in mid-October. Indoors however, the plants will be ready for harvest in just seven to nine weeks, which is an exceptionally fast-growing time. Clearly, those who want their Original Glue and want it fast should bring their setup inside.

Taste

Those who like a complex smoke will particularly like the flavor Original Glue has to offer. With its parents being Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel, this cannabis strain has a lot of different tastes to choose from. It’s a mix of diesel, rich pine and earthy notes, with flavors of coffee that also come through and give every flavor a slightly bitter edge. All of these are pungent and will tickle the nose at the same time you’re smacking your lips.

While Original Glue may cause a bit of coughing, particularly those who take multiple drags from it, or smoke a lot, it’s a relatively smooth smoke. This is particularly true when compared to other hybrid strains.

Bag Appeal

There is so much to love about this strain while it’s growing and being smoked, vaped, or eaten. But the thing many might love most is its sheer bag appeal. It’s a truly beautiful marijuana plant and that beauty shines through in its buds too. At first it may be difficult to take your eyes off the buds trichomes, which appear just about everyone on every single bud. Interspersed will be bright amber hairs to provide some contrast and get you even more excited.

That excitement will only grow as you cut into the buds and find that the resin is so sticky, it’ll stick to your hands.

There’s a reason Original Glue has made its name as not just a Cup winner, but also one of the best strains of marijuana out there. There’s so much to love about it, it can be a challenge to find anything bad to say about it. For those that want to just zone out and chill, or want to deal with issues such as anxiety, depression, or insomnia, this may just be the best strain to do it.
