About Happy Kush
Happy Kush is an Indica hybrid from prolific seed bank Karma Genetics that won 2nd Place in the 2014 International Cannagraphic 420 Grow Cup in Amsterdam. A cross between San Fernando Valley OG Kush (not to be confused with San Fernando Valley OG) and the lesser-known Happy Brother, this is a strain with excellent therapeutic sedative properties. Happy Kush’s THC content is as yet undocumented.
Buds of Happy Kush are dense and very resinous. They appear covered in trichomes and are medium to dark green. Buds and plants have occasional undertones of blue and purple, although these qualities may be more due to circumstantial exposure to cold weather or low pH during the growing process in individual crops than to a consistent, intentional phenotype in the strain. Happy Kush smells intensely herbal with strong pine and lemon notes.
Happy Kush has a heavy full-body stone with great benefits for insomnia and relaxation, and enough of a Sativa high to impart a pleasant head buzz. A good recreational option for those with stress and anxiety, Happy Kush might also be useful in the treatment of PTSD (its parent strain Happy Brother was named a Top 5 Strain for Veterans by High Times). Some users also report stimulation of appetite. With more of a nighttime vibe, Happy Kush is often associated with sleepiness and couchlock.
Because of its shorter, indica-dominant plants, Happy Kush is a solid indoor grow, with flowering happening around 65 to 75 days. Yield can be average, with thick calyxes but a high volume of leaves.
Valuable for its deep properties of relaxation and its bright and long-lasting flavor, Happy Kush has been crossbred to create Sin City Seeds’ Happy Nightmare.
