Khalifa Kush is an Indica-dominant hybrid (80/20 Indica) with THC levels that are off the charts – regularly testing between 26 and 29 percent. A child of OG Kush, its CBD content is about 2 percent. Khalifa Kush is Wiz Khalifa’s brand of cannabis. The rapper and Colorado-based RiverRock company are marketing the strain as one with a relaxing but energizing effect. San Francisco dispensary, the Cookie Co. 415, first made Khalifa Kush popular. Wiz Khalifa said it took years to develop the rare phenotype of OG Kush. They started from seed, with Khalifa personally testing the product, eventually giving his blessing. Genetics are still top secret, and legend has it that the real Khalifa Kush is much stronger than found at the dispensaries, and reserved just for Wiz. The taste and smell are like OG Kush, but Khalifa wanted it bred for a lemony flavor and pine notes, not earthy traits, although the weed retains undertones of a pungent smell. The strain is known for its stimulating effects, making it perfect for a wake and bake session or a midday session. Breeders designed the strain for uplifting cerebral effects accompanied by a relaxing body effect. The effect on the body is without heavy sedation, which should appeal to recreational users along with the high THC content. Lightweights and new users should use caution with this potent herb.
This delectable treat of a strain should be enjoyed with a double dose of care due to its extremely high THC content.
