Khalifa Kush is a heavily potent hybrid bred to the specification of famous rapper Wiz Khalifa. The strain produces an energetic, cerebral buzz without excessive fatigue - surprising based on its 80% indica dominance. Its exact genetics are unknown, yet it is known that Khalifa Kush is a descendant of the classic strain OG Kush.
Overview of Khalifa Kush
Khalifa Kush is an intense indica-dominant hybrid bred specifically to the taste of famous rapper/actor Wiz Khalifa. With THC< levels in the 24% to 26% range, and sometimes as high as 29%, Khalifa Kush is certainly among the strongest strains available to recreational.
Interestingly, there are rumors that Wiz Khalifa has an even stronger version of the strain produced for his own use, and it is not available to the public.
Despite its 80% indica dominance, Khalifa Kush (also known as Wiz Khalifa OG) produces a surprisingly energetic cerebral buzz without the onset of heavy sedation.
Potential Positive Effects of Khalifa Kush
Recreational cannabis consumers find that Khalifa Kush is a great any-time-of-day strain that gives them a serious buzz without prohibitive side effects. It's a great wake-and-bake, daytime or even late afternoon strain, the kind that makes the consumer more creative but still allows them to maintain focus on the task at hand.
Wiz Khalifa, some have positioned, had his breeders to cultivate a strain perfect for long days in the studio, working out lyrics and vocal phrasing for one hip hop verse after another.
Potential Negative Effects of Khalifa Kush
While Khalifa Kush thankfully does not regularly induce paranoia, users should certainly have a bottle of water or other beverage available for dry mouth. Khalifa Kush may dry up the eyes and, in some cases, can make the consumer dizzy.
The Lineage of Khalifa Kush
Musician and rapper Wiz Khalifa bred Khalifa Kush in conjunction with RiverRock, a Colorado-based grower. The strain first came to prominence at a San Francisco dispensary called Cookie Co. 415, and it later became popular throughout the large state of California.
From San Diego to Los Angeles and Oakland, to smaller cities like Downey and Huntington Park, Khalifa Kush has clearly captured the heart of many cannabis lovers in the Golden State. The strain even has its own website, complete with a map of where it can be purchased and a list of different smoking devices to employ when enjoying a bowl of Khalifa Kush.
It is a descendant of the popular OG Kush strain, though its exact genetics are not in the realm of public knowledge.
Growing Khalifa Kush
Growing details are - at the time of writing - highly elusive, much like the strain genetics.Judging by the growing details of the single parent strain, OG Kush, which has been made public, growing times will likely be between 7-10 weeks. OG Kush is known as a difficult strain to grow well, so Khalifa Kush likely requires a more experienced grower to achieve high-potency results.
Buds of Khalifa Kush are usually between small and medium-sized with orange hairs and enough resin to make it sticky to the touch. The flavors and aromas are similar to the classic OG Kush strain: a mix of citrus, lemon and pine with an earthy aftertaste on the exhale.
