About Mr. X
Mr. X, who sometimes goes by the name Mr. X Kush, is a clear-headed companion. He has more than a whiff of Kush flavor and an aroma that goes down smooth and earthy like a breath of the outdoors. He’s a strong hybrid strain, super strong, evenly balanced between Indica and Sativa, bred from a cross between Durban Poison and Platinum OG by Plantformers, breeders based in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Continue reading if you want to know why Mr. X is quickly becoming a new favorite for fans of Kushy goodness.
The Mr. X strain takes about 7-10 weeks to flower (expect a mid-October harvest if you grow it outside). Mr. X spends around three weeks in the veg stage, showing off its hybrid growing structure. It’s like a Christmas tree tower of pure greenness, with sticky nugs and shiny resin between broad green leaves. The strain has an average yield and enough resistance to the elements to make it suitable for even novice growers. The aromas of pepper, earth, and pine will be evident as soon as you break the nugs apart. The strain’s parent, the South African landrace strain and stunning Sativa known as Durban Poison, passed down traits of pungent earthy aromas and dense, sticky buds to its classy son.
The taste of Kush washes over you as you begin smoking Mr. X, a sensation of smooth, herbal, earthen, smoky, flowery pine. Other tastes at the back of your palette can include a spicy kick like a bit of black pepper as well as a little funk, like a dash of cream. Astute noses will be able to pick up traces of other terpenes in the tastes of mint and pine. The high is clear-headed, with a feeling of focused mental energy that will help you get going and enjoy the rest of your day. It won’t knock you out like some other strains – Mr. X is best kept as a daytime companion when working out, picking up a hobby, or hanging out with friends are still possibilities.
Mr. X may be well-known as one of the parent strains of the high-powered punchy Sativa known as Miss X, but on its own merits, it has a lot to offer lovers of Kush and clear-headedness. The plant grows easily, producing average yields of shiny resinous buds regardless of your experience level, and delivers a breath of herbal fresh air every time you enjoy it. Just remember that the strain will pick you up and clear your head, leaving you ready to think and have fun with a smooth smell and tantalizing taste to keep you company. You’ll need a big afternoon to appreciate it fully, with enough time before bed to calm down after Mr. X finally leaves the room.
