It is said that, back in the day, all cannabis strains were coined as “cannabis sativa”. Growers saw the clear differences between tropical and mountainous strains, therefore the names split into "sativa" and "indica". The kush strains derive from the indica genes, with their big leaves and protective composure. The name kush derives from the “Hindu Kush” mountain range were landrace indicas can be found.
Royal Queen Seeds decided to bundle the old-school kush genetics into one strain, Special Kush 1. If one wishes to transport themselves to the picturesque sceneries of Hindu Kush mountains, Special Kush 1 will be the method of transportation.
