Flowerbomb Kush is an indica dominant (70%), that will be a treat to the Kush aficionados. Daughter of OG Kush and Green Crack, Flowerbomb Kush has an heritage of impressive caliber. Green Crack is one of the most popular strains back in Spain, where its energizing and uplifting effects are well appreciated. OG Kush, on the other hand, has been lab tested as one of the highest THC containing plants in 2013 (24%) and has even been nominated one of the “25 Greatest Strains of All Time” by High Times.
With such a legacy on its genes, it is of no surprise that Flowerbomb Kush itself holds a couple of prizes too. Winner of the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2012, Flowerbomb Kush made sure that no-one would forget where it came from. Stretchier than most kushes and with branches so long they might compete with the cola, this plant is ready to give you some wonderfully dense and compact buds.
The leaves of the plant are thick and tend to overlap. Their colour is of a dark green, with some tones of black. Its buds, which are of an irregular shape, have extra large calyxes and are prone to forming foxtails. They tend to also glisten with trichomes, which gives to the plant a beautiful complexion. When crumbled, the buds are sticky and very dark green. The resin, which is very thick, starts to extend throughout the leaves by the end of the flowering period.
Flowerbomb Kush is not necessarily the heaviest producer but it certainly produces buds of high quality. To obtain the best of its flavours, it is best to grow the plant in soil, although it also performs well in hydroponics setups. It will do well at medium EC levels. Once it is time to harvest, indoor growers should expect something around 0.8 grams per watt with a 1000W HPS. Outdoor growers may be able to produce 1kg or more per plant.
Once inhaled, the plant has an earthy, somewhat mossy flavour, similar to that of the OG Kush. Immediately after this initial taste, however, an explosion of fruity flavours invades the taste buds, which ends in an edgy and spicy tone. It won’t take long before you start feeling its first effects. Beginning with the bodily sensations, the cerebral effects will start to creep in soon after. Unlike most indicas, after smoking this plant you might suddenly feel more active and ready to get things done. That is why this strain is recommended for daytime use. Beware that it also tends to give you the munchies, so have some snacks ready by your side.
