Bred by DutchBreed, Karakoram Kush is a strain dominated by indica genes that produce leaves with strong stems and rock hard buds. It was named after the large mountain range where it was first picked, which is situated around the borders of India, Pakistan, and China. It cannot be bought as feminized seeds and can be grown indoors and outdoors.
The strain presents a mouth-watering classic kush taste and aroma. It delivers an uplifting but calming effect. It makes the user-inspired the whole day, rendering a lot of tasks completed. The high is like ascending the mountain where it originated. The user feels more motivated and accomplished as he goes higher and higher. Once the peak of the mountain is reached, so does the rush of the high’s pinnacle. The user will feel happier than ever. He will even find himself talkative and in awe of the beautiful view atop the mountain.
As calming and relaxing it can be, Karakoram Kush is recommended for people experiencing insomnia. It is also smoked by people with loss of appetite as it can trigger the munchies. It can stabilize the emotions and mood of people with anxiety. Depression patients can be uplifted in just a few takes, as well as those who have been struggling with chronic stress and fatigue. It can also soothe any type of physical pain.
The medical benefits of Karakoram Kush are just relaxing calm before the storm. Like a true storm, you can prepare for it by keeping some water nearby before smoking so you can easily combat your dry mouth, dry eyes, and to rehydrate your parched throat right away. Also, make it a point to be mindful of your intake so you won’t experience more major effects, which are the medical conditions stated above.
Originating from the mountain ranges, Karakoram Kush has high resistance, but it does not mean you can just leave it to fend for itself. Topping the plant will increase air ventilation, as well as the ability of the light to reach all plant areas. You can also do LST or Low-Stress Training for better yields.
