About Mickey Kush
It’s nice when you get a reputation for being the best at something, but it’s even nicer when you’re the best at two things. In this case, Mickey Kush has gained a reputation for being highly potent and super psychoactive. A child of two celebrity strains, Sweet Irish Kush and Jack the Ripper, Mickey Kush was bound to make headlines and thanks to SubCool’s Dank, it has.
Her ultra-high THC, the guesstimate falling between 23% and 25%, makes this bud one for the hall of fame, and definitely one that novice users will want to steer clear of. With strong earthy flavors and potent lemon aromas, this Northern California kush often gets compared to the smell of cleaning products, but in a loving way of course. Those that like that a tart smell will love this tangy and woody flavor profile.
For recreational users, this is a sativa lover’s dream. This highly stimulating smoke wakes you up with an initial happy-go-lucky rush, leaving you feeling energetic and joyful. Almost immediately the tingles begin and a sharp focus overtakes your mind. This makes for a great time to zoom through your to-do list or to just take a brisk walk. Enjoy the social nature of this strain and share it with friends, though if any of them are newbies or are prone to anxiety, maybe skip them in the rotation. Be ready to giggle, tingle, then suddenly and without warning melt into utter relaxation.
As mentioned above, newer users and especially medicinal users, should proceed with extreme caution and know what ailments this strain is good and bad for. For those that suffer from anxiety, paranoia, or PTSD, you might want to leave Mickey Kush to others. Its energetic properties can sometimes get the heart racing and put your mind on overdrive, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and shaky. That being said, some other mental health disorders, such as depression and mild cases of stress, benefit greatly from this strain. It’s also helpful in the treatment of headaches, spasms, and fatigue.
Mickey Kush is considered an intermediate plant to grow with a flowering time of 7 to 8 weeks indoors, and a late October harvest outdoors. Anyone with a green thumb can make it happen, but this plant is typically recommended for those who have done this a time or two. Mickey Kush plants tend to grow tall so pruning is a must, and make sure you plan out your grow space accordingly before it’s too late.
This up and down psychoactive high can be very fun so long as you know what you are getting into. It tears in with sativa energy, then slowly flows into an indica type of relaxation period. If you find yourself in California, you might do yourself a favor and try some out.
