Not all Kush cannabis strains are highly popular, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have plenty to offer. One of them is Hindu Kush, with the parents being Master Kush and Lower Ryder. This is an Indica strain of cannabis. The leaves are lime green in color with bright orange hairs that develop in the weeks leading up to harvest time.
The amount of THC found in Hindu Kush is less than many other strains, but it is still high. It ranges from 18% to 20%. It is a good idea to use a small amount of it because the buzz will be powerful. It will also come on fast and make you very sleepy. As a result, it is a strain of cannabis best reserved for the time before bed or when you don’t have anything else you must take care of.

There are quite a few different reasons why consumers choose Hindu Kush over other strains of cannabis. Such uses can include:
None of the Kush strains are easy to grow, and this one is no exception. Yet it can be done with some practice and patience. You have to carefully follow the best practices for the soil, the water, and the lighting for the Hindu Kush plants to thrive. They should be grown indoors where you can manipulate and control their environment.
The plants are about 5 feet tall when they are fully mature. It can take between 8 and 10 weeks for them to be ready to harvest once the seeds have germinated.
