Could the real Kush please stand up?
    #92200 - 07/24/08 05:43 AM (8 years, 4 months ago)

so what's the deal with Purps and Kush?

I see a ton of different Kush strains whats the deal?? I've read somewhere that a lot of Kush strains aren't really Kush strains. So what makes Kush where did it come from??

I've heard of OG Kush which is a breeder back on some old forums make of Kush as far as I know. Then Hindu Kush from Sensi which seems to be the most historical I've read about then it's a mess from there.

ex. DJ shorts has the original blueberry
ex. TH and Serious have the original bubblegum
ex. Mr Nice made White Widow, White Rhino, Super Silver Haze, ect

same questions apply for purps.

According to a book I read, Kush is from the Kush mountains of India. I'm guessing its simply a variety of Indica. There are a few references to this with the different breeders that carry them. I just ordered some of White Label's Master Kush. It looked promising.

I think you mean the Hindu Kush mountains on the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. :wink:

The "real" one would be a land-race variety from the region. I'm sure a few breeders have brought seeds back from the area. Don't really know much more beyond that, as I haven't looked into it, but I do know that OG Kush is a clone-only strain down in Cali.

White Label claims that theirs came from seeds brought back from the region.

I assume Hindu Kush from Sensi is the real deal more or less then?

This pure Indica seed-strain comes directly from the massive mountain range for which it is named. The Hindu Kush is the western spur of the Himalayas, covering half of Afghanistan and straddling the borders of Pakistan and India, reaching almost to China. This desolate and beautiful region forms an important trade-route between the Middle East, central Asia and the Far East and the ancient cannabis traditions of the surrounding cultures have met and merged here over centuries. Put simply, the Hindu Kush is the absolute centre of the world when considering true Indica or Afghanica genotypes and the various forms of black hashish produced from them.

This cultivar has been selected for quality and stability over countless generations, always breeding within its own gene pool. Hindu Kush produces very consistent seedlings and is an excellent variety for uniform indoor crops grown straight from seed. Plants are dark green, squat and powerful with classic, broad-bladed Indica leaves. In warmer climates, below about 42°N, Hindu Kush can flourish outdoors.

Flowering is strong and reliable, producing fast harvests of thick Afghani buds even in the hands of a novice grower. Hindu Kush has a subtle scent of sandalwood tinged with the sweet aroma of fresh charas. Potency is remarkably high for a non-hybrid strain, with the mellow, positive body vibration possessed by the famous high-altitude Indicas. Hindu Kush also imparts a calm, contemplative mental state, instead of the brain-numbing stone of later Indica, Afghanica and Skunk hybrids.

sounds like Kush Win.

Appearently Purps strains come from a clone only strain "mendo purps" and it's much like the deal with CHeese strains coming from UK Cheese.

These may be my next 2 picks.

Clinics in so cali all got OG but the real original Og was renamed to Tahoe because so many peeps grew it in hc and it wasn't as good but the original is some of the best ive smoked
