AK Kush is an 85% indica strain that has therapeutic properties, in particular very highly recommended for pain relief. It was created by crossing Kuban (Crimean) Indica with Afghan Kush before crossing the result with AK 47. AK Kush produces spectacularly large resin crystals which cover the plant.
This strain has the rather unusual property of being able to not only withstand but flourish outdoors in high latitudes, such as northern Europe, as well as in Eastern Europe where it was tested. In fact outdoor specimens have recorded yields as high as 1400 gr/plant despite it remaining quite a short plant at around 1 meter tall. This is testament to its very bushy form with hundreds of budding sites. Indoors a very creditable 600 gr/m2 can be achieved although 450 - 550 gr/m2 is more common.
The effect of AK Kush is both narcotic and cerebral; this makes it beneficial in the treatment of chronic pain as well as insomnia. Its flavour/aroma profile is sweet with mint, eucalyptus and citrus notes.
