KO Kush is a rare indica strain created by the respected Heavyweight Seeds, by crossing the dank Herijuana with the underground favourite, Killa Kush. Heavyweight Seeds is most well-known for creating some of the most potent genetics in the industry – and this strain is no exception to that. KO Kush is distinguished from most generic Kush strains by its intense and compelling effects. This strain is definitely not recommended for anyone looking for a subtle high, as it truly has the potential to knock out even the most experienced smokers.
KO Kush boasts a massive average THC level ranging from 20-25%. This strain is super dank and is associated with a heavily sedating high and pure healing properties. Like the name may suggest, KO Kush has extreme knock out potential. The high begins like most kush strains, with an intense, stoned body-buzz, followed by insatiable munchies and a giggly, cheerful mood. As the high lingers on, and with larger doses or heavier intake, the high of KO Kush transforms into a heightened indica high, molding you into the couch, and putting users into a deep, relaxed state. KO Kush is recommended for people looking to treat heavy chronic pain, lack of appetite and insomnia.
Very round, dense nugs are covered in a heavy, glue-like stickiness from the amount of THC crystals all over the plant. The frostiness of the THC contrasts with the bright, pine green hue of KO Kush to create a very appealing plant. The aroma of KO Kush is very copious in earthy tones – it is skunky and has a delightful spicey smell. The flavour is very similar to the smell, being equally earthy and spicy, with a Death Bubba-esque gas like after taste.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Barack Obama once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.

Indica strains originated from the mountain ranges of Asia and as a result, developed many features to protect itself from the harsh environments. Indica plants are known for being shorter, and bushier, with thicker layers of resinous THC. The high of indica strains are defined by the “couch-lock” effect they have on users. Indica strains serve well as relaxation strains, or to aid with pain and sleeping ailments. The calming, sedating effects of indica strains make it excellent for night-time usage or off-work hours.
