Khalifa Kush is the brainchild of rapper, Whiz Khalifa, and also goes by its acronym – KK. Rapper and entrepreneur, Khalifa, is not the first to move from the music business into the cannabis industry with Snoop Dogg, Melissa Etheridge and LA rapper – The Game (just to name a few) using their name and platform to promote their product. Following the legalization of cannabis in California, rappers such as Khalifa have capitalised on this move, and opened dispensaries, created new strains, and are even building educational mobile apps. Khalifa Kush, came as a result of a partnership between Reef Dispensaries and Khalifa’s cannabis brand, Young, Wild & Free.
This plant produces a lot of bud, which requires a lot of pruning to get it to its optimal growth. If grown indoors this plant will provide a yield of 17 ounces per meter square, while outdoors Khalifa Kush will yield around 13 ounces per plant.
The aroma and taste of Khalifa Kush is evocative of OG Kush, and although it was supposedly bred to have more lemony notes rather than Kush, it is a mixture of both, tasting sweet and woody at the same time. The buds of this plant are green with orange trichomes that are full of resin.
Khalifa Kush is an Indica Dominant hybrid (80/20) that regularly comes in at 25% THC and in some cases reaches an impressive 29%. The CBD level of KK is about 2 %, which is probably a result of its OG Kush ancestry. This is undoubtedly a top shelf product, and it is claimed that only Whiz Khalifa himself has the original strain which he keeps for himself! Precise test results are not available at the moment but will be added when available.
As might be expected from a strain created by an artist, Khalifa Kush can increase creativity and focus, perfect for the performer, musician, and all-round creative who wants to bring out this side of their personality. As this strain is remarkably strong, it is recommended for more experienced users who can handle the cerebral brain high it provides. Despite its strength, Khalifa Kush goes down remarkably well, and is famed for its smooth smoke that irritates the throat less than some other strains.
Depending on the amount consumed, Khalifa Kush can be used as a mild sedative, which acts on both the mind and body. Due to these effects, Khalifa Kush can be used to treat stress-related conditions such as anxiety and some forms of mental illness. In order for this to be effective, however, the individual requirements and tolerance levels of the individual should always be taken into consideration.
Whiz Khalifa, is a serious rapper and a serious connoisseur of cannabis. With this in mind, it is fair to say that the potency of Khalifa Kush can be a tad overwhelming for normal mortals. It is therefore, not unusual for even advanced smokers to experience dizziness or even anxiety after consuming Khalifa Kush in excess.
