About Khalifa Kush
History & Genetics
Khalifa Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid (80/20 indica) with THC levels that are off the charts - regularly testing between 26 and 29 percent. A child of OG Kush, its CBD content is about 2 percent.
Khalifa Kush is Wiz Khalifa’s brand of cannabis. The rapper and Colorado-based RiverRock company are marketing the strain as one with a relaxing but energizing effect. Khalifa sometimes shortens the strain name to KK.
Mr. Khalifa joins Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, Melissa Etheridge and others in marketing cannabis products and customized strains. The cannabis industry is expanding its partnerships with celebrities so consumers can expect more branded strains like Khalifa Kush in the near future.
San Francisco dispensary, the Cookie Co. 415, first made Khalifa Kush popular. Wiz Khalifa said it took years to develop the rare phenotype of OG Kush. They started from seed, with Khalifa personally testing the product, eventually giving his blessing. Genetics are still top secret, and legend has it that the real Khalifa Kush is much stronger than found at the dispensaries, and reserved just for Wiz.
Appearance, Aroma, & Flavor
The taste and smell are like OG Kush, but Khalifa wanted it bred for a lemony flavor and pine notes, not earthy traits, although the weed retains undertones of a pungent smell. They develop into very dense nugs that are deep green and dark orange hairs. Resin coats the buds with tiny trichomes that make them extremely sticky!
The strain is known for its stimulating effects, making it perfect for a wake-and-bake session or a midday session. Breeders designed the strain for uplifting cerebral effects accompanied by a relaxing body effect. The effect on the body is without heavy sedation, which should appeal to recreational users along with the high THC content. Lightweights and new users should use caution with this potent herb.
The lack of strong sedation makes the strain suitable for mild and moderate medical conditions such as fatigue, stress, anxiety, and depression while the high CBD is good for more serious conditions. Medical patients may also like the strain due to its reported smooth smoke that may irritate the throat less than other strains.
Khalifa Kush buds are small or medium-sized, green with orange hairs, dense, and full of resin. When seeds are available, because it is a phenotype of OG Kush, grow it indoors, outside, or in a greenhouse. The plant is bushy and produces a lot of buds. Prune the plant for maximum growth that may be ready for harvest in 60 days.
This is a great strain that all cannasuers should try. It helped me a ton with my muscle pain, anxiety, and fatigue during the day. This had a lighter feel to it then a lot of kush but it was still unique and nice. You can wake and bake with this strain but it’s not going to have you so relaxed and couch locked that it’s an ideal option for night. Overal, nice hybrid for the day time that can cover a lot of medicinal needs.
Currently medicating with some Khalifa kush from the actual company itself. Looks like it’s grown and produced by FloraCal farms out here in cali. This is a must try for all cannasuers out there! Overall this strain was really good for pain relief, inflammation, headaches, fatigue, etc. For me it didn’t feel like a normal kush that was more on the heavier body high indica but more on the hybrid side where I felt like going to the gym or working. This is a great wake n bake strain or a great day time strain. This strain for the day and then some top shelf gmo cookies at night will do the trick and cover a lot of your medicinal needs. Stay up!
not bad at all. i went out of town and made it a point to stop at a dispensary in the Phoenix area at Reef, Dispensary in Queens Creek, AZ to pick up my standard strain test size quarter of this pretty light green flower. smells potent and confirms after its smoked. i give Khalifa props on his brainchild.
Great for pain relief as suggested. I am currently healing from multiple lacerations and must admit this buds effectiveness is quite surprising. The pain is immediately subsided by the cerebral stimulation experienced from this strain.
