Known for its stunning purple hues and high medicinal value, Purple Kush has earned the favor of connoisseurs and novices alike. This pure Indica hails from two influential landraces – Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani – and is famed for its resin-loaded purple buds that exude a rich, sweet berry aroma with a subtle earthiness. With up to 25% THC concentration, it induces an immensely sedating body high that could pave the way to a peaceful slumber, making it the perfect after-dinner cultivar.
The other parent cultivar is a multi-awarded Indica-dominant hybrid. With THC levels of up to 22%, it was once hailed as the most potent cultivar in the world. A stable cross of the coveted White Widow and AK-47, White Russian features dense and resinous buds with a notoriously pungent aroma of lemon, incense and exotic wood. Its euphoric head high dovetails into an immensely numbing body stone.
Together, these two epic cultivars created an offspring with stunning purple buds blanketed in thick layers of frosty trichomes. Each of these dense, THC-laden nugs exudes a citrus and pine aroma with a smooth undertone of spicy Kush. It delivers a potent mind and body high that lets the brain wander in a lucid, psychedelic trip. Apart from its recreational uses, it’s also said to have excellent medicinal value.
These feminized Cold War Kush seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. are easy to cultivate, having been subjected to quality control tests that guarantee almost 100% germination and female turnout.
Growing Cold War Kush is reasonably straightforward. Given the Hindu Kush genetics inherited from Purple Kush’s genes, it’s highly resistant to mould and can withstand harsh environmental conditions. It also tends to be more forgiving to minor mistakes when compared to other cultivars.
As it blooms, it commands attention, with deep purple buds snow-capped in frosty trichomes providing a stark contrast to the bright green leaves. This serves as a warning sign of the incredibly profound experience that is yet to come.
Like most Indica-dominant hybrids, Cold War Kush is a bushy and small to mid-sized plant. It normally stays under 2 feet tall, making it easy to grow even when vertical space is limited. While it thrives in both indoor and outdoor setups, it tends to reach its full potential when grown outside where there’s ample sunlight and plenty of room for its roots to spread.
Cold War Kush works well in any medium, be it soil-based or soilless. Using organic soil enriched with coco coir and nutrients is the best choice if you want to further boost the terpene profile. Using a soilless medium, such as hydroponics, is guaranteed to cause explosive growth by expediting the pace of maturation and increasing production capacity. For this reason, the latter is the more popular setup for this cultivar.
Thanks to the White Russian influence, this hybrid is fairly high-yielding and rapid-flowering. Despite taking quite some time in the vegetative phase, massive yields of dense, trichome-laden buds may be harvested after as little as 7 to 9 weeks of blooming. Cold-shocking the plant just before harvest will activate the pigments known as anthocyanins, which are responsible for the cultivars trademark purple hue.
Cold War Kush’s pine and citrus aroma come with an earthy undertone of spicy Kush. This distinctive scent is so pungent that it could drift across the street, so it’s wise to invest in an odour-controlling device such as a carbon filter if discretion is needed.
Flavor-wise, this hybrid is a potpourri of unique and complex flavors, including musky sandalwood and sweet grapes with a subtle aftertaste of spice and herbs.
The sublime experience starts with an enthralling cerebral high that energizes the senses and brightens up the day. Although such mental effects don’t tend to be overwhelming, newbies must be wary of the ensuing body high as it could knock them out with its intensely sedating aftermath.
With high levels of THC, Cold War Kush delivers a full-body and long-lasting dose of relaxation that could render you immobile. Once the profoundly sedating effects wash over your body, any motivation to get stuff done will disintegrate. Instead, lying back and basking in the pleasant and soothing sensation of calm and introspection becomes irresistible.
As with most other cannabis cultivars, side effects such as cottonmouth, dry eyes, dizziness, headache, and, in rare cases, paranoia and anxiety may occur. The good news is that these adverse reactions can usually be mitigated by correct hydration and responsible dosing.
With feminized Cold War Kush seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co., harvesting staggering yields of top-shelf buds need not be painstakingly hard. If provided with adequate care and an optimal growing environment, this awesome plant will reward you with alluringly purple nugs snow-capped in frosty trichomes after as few as 7 to 9 weeks of flowering.
Not only are these buds pretty to look at, but they also deliver a powerful punch of bodily relaxation augmented by fast-acting and long-lasting therapeutic effects. Cold War Kush is a perennial favourite among cultivators, recreational users and medicinal marijuana patients alike.
