Mango Kush by Guru Seeds is an indica-dominant strain with a signature mango fruit taste and aroma. Fairly easy-to-grow, Mango Kush does not require a lot of attention to produce a decent yield. Effects are quite sedative, and you will surely work up an appetite consuming this strain.
Heritage & Genetics: The heritage of Mango Kush (65/35 indica-sativa) is hazy at best. The most likely scenario is that it was first bred in the Netherlands by crossing KC Brains Mango and an unknown Hindu Kush phenotype to add stability. The Mango itself is a hybrid between KC33 and Afghani. THC levels have been measured around 16-18%.
Flavor & Aroma: The smell and taste of this strain are predictably sweet and fruity. Both the flavor and aroma have been described as tropical, with an overpowering mango smell and subtle banana undertones. Upon inhaling smoke or vapor of this strain, you will get a hint of a sweet yet earthy taste.
Effect: Mango Kush is a classic “relaxing” strain, delivering a strong sedative effect that will probably make you voraciously hungry. That makes it an amazing candidate for evening vape sessions at home with friends. Just make sure to stock up your fridge beforehand.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Mango Kush is an easy strain to grow even if you don’t have much experience in gardening. It is quite resistant to mold, viruses, and parasites, and thus, quite forgiving to mistakes. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation, Mango Kush will flower in about 10-12 weeks from planting. A good organic soil mix is the best option to bring out the rich terpenoid profile of this strain.
