Ketama Kush is a sativa dominant strain courtesy of Hindu Kush cross originating from the largely mountainous region running from Afghanistan to Pakistan, hence, the strain name. It produces small, compact buds covered in an abundant amount of resins. It can be grown indoors and outdoors.
The weed has a subtle, deliciously sweet and earthy sandalwood scent and tastes Its potency sends a calming and relaxing body high. As it clears the mind of unhelpful thoughts, it also clears the body of uncomfortable aches at the same time. The user is deliberately placed in a calm state but still able to complete existing tasks. Recommended for night time usage, it also helps the user to fall asleep effortlessly once the lights are out.
The strain can be an anti-anxiety and anti-depressant. It can regulate the mood, focus, racing thoughts, and productivity, which are usually the common problems people with anxiety and depression face in their everyday lives. It helps with the production of more serotonin, which is responsible for increasing appetite. Thus, the strain is also good for people with loss of appetite, such as patients with anorexia.
The negatives mostly manifest if Ketama Kush is taken beyond tolerance. These downsides include headache or migraine and nausea, conditions that are supposed to be erased by the strain with its effects. There are also reported cases of hallucinations and paranoia. If you are successful in smoking within your tolerance, you will only experience the lighter downsides of having a dry mouth, dry eyes, and a parched throat.
The strain adapts well in the Screen of Green (SCROG) setup. This works well, especially when done together with Low Stress Training (LST) with lots of light intensity. The more light intensity, the better the result, as long as the temperature is controlled, and the humidity is maintained at a low level. In between watering, make sure the soil has completely absorbed up all water before the next water.
