Special Kush #1 is the lowest-priced and biggest-selling strain in the whole Royal Queen seed catalogue. It is an indica-dominant (80%) cross of an Afghani strain with one from the Hindu Kush mountains bordering Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Special Kush #1 is an old-school Kush that has been “modernised” by introducing it as a feminised strain. Anyone who fancies some old-time Kush at a very modest price will be very happy with this cannabis strain. Ideally plants such as this prefer to be grown outdoors in the wild where they can reach a height of 300 cm. or even more. Indoors plants will remain at around 100 cm. or less but growers are advised to give only a short vegetative growth period to keep the height down where space is at a premium. In a 7 – 8 week flowering period yields of 425 – 475 gr/m2 can be harvested.
Outdoor growers should be aware that this strain really needs a Mediterranean or a warm continental climate to do itself justice. With sufficient nutrients, sun and water Special Kush #1 can produce up to 550 gr/plant with harvest time being in late September.
Its buds are tight and compact with 17% THC and low levels of CBD. The taste is sweet, earthy and hash-like, typical for a Kush strain. The effect is that of a full body stone with a clear, expansive high which will allow smokers to relax and unwind.
