About 3 Kings
3 Kings, a Sativa-dominant (70/30) tribrid made of Headband, OG Kush, and Sour Diesel, is a mid-difficult strain to grow but a simple one to use. Mendocino Farms, a California favorite, bred the strain to be a combination of three stellar heavy hitters. It’s the three staples of cannabis cuisine that went into its genetic lineage, and not the wise men from the Bible, that make up the kings of 3 Kings. For those who need a lax THC level that can still reduce pain and inflammation, this West Coast favorite should do the trick.
Daytime activities like creative hobbies, hanging out with friends, and getting some extra work done are a great fit for 3 Kings. The strain keeps you focused and happy while improving your ability to work by reducing depression and headaches. Its terpenes can reduce inflammation and treat chronic pain as well, making it a great post-work strain, especially for those who want to relax without completely zoning out. If you experience migraines or cramps, this strain can help you as well.
The flavor is unique. 3 Kings tastes of hash, pine, and earthy soil. The inhale is like fresh garden dirt, full of outdoor aromas and a pleasant sensation of fuel and earthiness. It’s not incredibly pronounced in terms of the harsh hashiness of some other strains, so it’s a little more forgiving if you’re a bit on the novice side. It’s a smooth smoke for sure, with even some sweetness at the end.
The strain looks like sugar because of its abundant, tiny trichomes and has a soily, pungent smell in your hand. It’s bright green with brown hairs and is a little temperamental to grow. Given the right treatment, however, each plant could produce up to 700 grams of usable cannabis, flowering in about 9 to 10 weeks. It can grow outdoors or indoors but tends to like more temperate climates.
The energetic, focused euphoria brought on by 3 Kings is perfect to dim an overactive mood or focus on less strenuous activities like studying, reading, fishing, and visiting a spa. Those who love yoga can use this strain to increase their calm, which increases the effectiveness of the stretch. Though many users report dry mouth and eyes on 3 Kings, far more describe it as a focused, calming strain that brings out their happy side.
