Growing Kong’s Kush

Indoors, it can provide medium and outdoor yields of around 500 g per plant, growing large side branches that reach the same height as the main cola. Its parent, the Wonder Pie, influences the shortened flowering time of this strain.

Kong’s Kush has a shortened flowering time and increased yield, making it a perfect choice for commercial production. Growers have reported that this strain produces tight, frosty flowers with amazing bud formation, making it a highly aesthetic plant that looks great when growing.

How Does Kong’s Kush Interact with the Endocannabinoid System?

The endocannabinoid system (also known as the ECS) is a complex cell-signaling network inside your body. It plays an important role in regulating various functions and contains many components such as endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes (Zou et al., 2018). To stimulate these receptors, our bodies produce endocannabinoids. These are very similar in structure to those found in the cannabis plant.

According to research, using cannabis can stimulate the ECS and can have multiple positive physical and psychoactive effects on the body (Grinspoon, 2018). Cannabis such as Kong’s Kush interacts with the ECS system to produce health and wellness benefits.

Phytocannabinoids and Kong’s Kush

Cannabis short photoperiod plant L. and Cannabis long photoperiod plant L. both contain phytocannabinoids. These are very similar in structure to the endocannabinoids produced by the body. In turn, these have an effect on the endocannabinoid system (Swift et al., 2013).

  • Tetrahydrocannabinol, or Potency, binds to endocannabinoid receptors to stimulate responses to endocannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol also has psychoactive effects that can make you feel “high.”
  • Cannabidiol, or CBD, can lengthen the lifespan of endocannabinoids in the body. Unlike Potency, CBD does not make you feel high. According to research, cannabis strains with a higher CBD level can have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-anxiety effects.

What Is the Potency Content of the Kong’s Kush Strain?

Kong’s Kush contains around 20% Potency. Cannabis strains that contain a higher Potency level tend to produce a more potent psychoactive effect and can trigger the ‘high’ feeling commonly associated with smoking weed.

Terpene Profile of Kong’s Kush

Terpenes are chemical compounds that are responsible for creating different types of smells. Kong’s Kush boasts a range of fragrant terpenes. The unique aromas found within this Short Photoperiod Plant-dominant combination between short and long photoperiod plant combine delicious notes of banana and cinnamon. We’ve listed some of them below:

  • Beta-Caryophyllene: a terpene also found in black pepper which demonstrates anti-inflammatory qualities and contributes to a spicy flavor (Russo et al., 2011).
  • Myrcene: a pleasant-smelling monoterpene known for its analgesic, sedative, antidiabetic, antioxidant, and antibacterial qualities (Surendren et al., 2021).
  • Limonene: a lemony, citrusy scent found in fruit peels. This terpene triggers serotonin release and can improve mood (Eddin et al., 2021).

What Does Kong’s Kush Taste Like?

Alongside aroma, it’s important to consider flavor too, as every strain of cannabis offers a wide variety of aftertaste on the palate. Kong’s Kush offers a punchy combination that mixes banana and cinnamon flavors together. Wonder Pie has influenced the creamy and gassy flavor of this strain. If you’re looking for a cannabis strain packed full of tropical flavors, then Kong’s Kush might make the perfect choice for you.
