The Hindu Kush mountain ranges stretch from Pakistan to Afghanistan. Throughout history, the Hindu Kush has played a significant role in human history - and for the cannabis community it is considered the epicenter of all indica strains.
Thousands of years ago, hemp plants developed there that can withstand the tough, windswept mountain slopes and cold temperatures. Aside from their toughness and adaptability, they deliver an unmatched physical high that has set the standard for all Indica strains.
40-50 different pure indica land races have developed there and it is unclear how many of these strains found their way to Europe. However, one became particularly well known and named as a tribute to its home region, the Hindu Kush. Since its launch, Hindu Kush has not only built an enormous fan base, but has also passed its genetics on to numerous hybrid strains that have also become legends in their own right.
The Hindu Kush has pleasant "old-school THC levels" that make the physical high very pleasant. It also has good medical potential for treating pain and relieving tension and cramps.
Nowadays you no longer have to traverse the massive mountains of Pakistan and Afghanistan to find Hindu Kush seeds. These feminized seeds from Seeds66 will bring this fantastic plant right into your living room.
The growth of the Hindu Kush
The incredible adaptability of the Hindu Kush to windswept mountain slopes is evident in its structure. It remains quite compact and grows to a height of about three feet indoors, but shows a bushy lateral expansion. These properties make them ideal for indoor growing and also in small tents.
The yield can be increased to up to 650 grams per square meter with the "Sea of ??Green method" and a hydroponic setup. In normal growing, the yield is 450-550 grams per square meter. The flowering time is on average 8 - 9 weeks indoors.
Although it is very resistant to mold and mildew, a combination of light defoliation and good ventilation helps ensure disease-free growth with better air circulation. This also gives the lower branches access to the light source to develop more flowers. This is the key that growers should focus on as any hemp plant usually focuses its energy on the central cola.
The Hindu Kush from Seeds66 also cuts a fine figure outdoors. It is very robust and can withstand strong temperature fluctuations. The outdoor harvest takes place from the end of September to mid-October and the yield is around 550 - 650 grams per plant.
Smell and taste of Hindu Kush
The smell and taste are reminiscent of the good old days of the 80s from the Amsterdam coffee shops. Earthy, sweet with wonderful pine notes. Absolutely "old school".
The effect of the Hindu Kush
The effects of this strain are no different from the original Hindu Kush that smokers know and love. As soon as the effect sets in, it triggers a gentle cerebral euphoria, which then changes into a pleasant physical feeling. With increasing intensity, the mood begins to loosen up, when a feeling of happiness sets in and makes every smoker satisfied.
Hindu Kush has a calming physical effect, but does not tie you to the sofa, even though it makes most users feel lazy, calm and peaceful. The relaxing calming physical effect helps all users who suffer from insomnia. You should also have plenty of nibbles in stock as this strain can also increase appetite.
