LINEAGE
In the highest test of Sour Kush, the strain produced over 30% THC. This DNA Genetics creation is a powerful medical strain with relaxing yet clear-headed effects.

Sour Kush is a hybrid with some rockstar genetics. Bred by DNA Genetics, this strain is a cross between Sour Diesel and OG Kush. The result is a slightly indica-dominant beauty with plenty of crystal trichomes.

Though this strain is not often the most potent bud on dispensary or coffee shop shelves, Sour Kush boasts a heavy coating of THC, averaging between 20 and 26% of the psychoactive. In some tests, this strain has reached up to 30% THC, making it a recommended strain for experienced consumers.

Thanks to the hybrid effects, Sour Kush is a top choice for medical cannabis patients seeking daytime relief. Many use this pungent hybrid for pain and muscle tension relief. Sour Kush is popular among those who experience muscle spasms. While indica strains are typically recommended for the management of physical ailments, Sour Kush provides the physically relaxing body effects without the mental sedation.

The Sour Kush experience is happy and uplifting, allowing consumers to get things done without feeling hazy or unfocused. Many cannabis patients with mental health conditions use Sour Kush for relief from anxiety, depression, and chronic stress.

Sour Kush was formally called Headband but has since been further developed by DNA Genetics.

Growing Tips

This plant is easy to clone, and will typically root in 8 to 10 days. It is slightly shorter than Sour Diesel plants and less stretched than OG Kush. Sour Kush tends to spread out, producing a canopy. This makes it a great candidate for screen of green (SCROG) techniques. This plant likes moderate amounts of nutrients, however, it is not very sensitive. This makes Sour Kush a great choice for new growers.
