Despite the moderate THC levels, the Mango Kush high kicks in soon after a few puffs, providing a happy feeling and a strong body tone. Most Mango Kush users love it for its sweet taste, fruity scent and pleasant high.
Royal Queen Seeds introduced Mango Kush to meet the high demand for a cannabis strain can provide a euphoric high without adverse effects. It is was created by crossing Somango and Critical 47, which are some of the most productive and robust cannabis strains. Now that its seeds are now readily available, the strain has become a favourite for both new and experienced growers.
Appearance, Aroma and Flavour
Mango Kush is a short plant with silky purple hues on the leaves. Mature Kush Mango plants have dense buds with orange pistils. The buds also have thick, shiny trichomes which are more visible when the bud is broken into pieces.
When it comes to the aroma and flavour, Mango Kush cannabis strain has a fragrance and taste similar to the mango fruit. The taste is, however, combined with a strong Kush flavour and some pine hints in each exhale.
Growth and Yielding
Mango Kush is an excellent strain to start with as a novice grower as it requires little maintenance throughout its growth cycle. The strain is also easy to grow because it is naturally resistant to diseases. The plants can thrive in a warm, dry and sunny climate with temperatures of 21-26 degree Celsius. The Mango Kush plant does not grow tall, but it becomes bushy during the vegetative stage. This means that you will be required to regularly prune and trim the plant to keep it in good shape. Bushy plants affect airflow and circulation, especially in indoor environments.
Mango Kush has a flowering period of 9-11 months, and the average yield is 450 grams per plant for plants grown outdoors and 380 grams per square metre for plants grown indoors.
Though the effects last for one to two hours, the best time for use is in the evening after work due to the happy and giggly mood perfect for socialising with friends. This strain can also cause drowsiness, mostly when the user is halfway through the duration of its effect. Other negative effects include dry mouth, dry eyes, anxiety and paranoia.
In addition to the recreational effects, Mango Kush also offers some health benefits to medicinal cannabis users. The uplifting and euphoric high provided by the weed can be a relief to people suffering from mood disorders like anxiety and stress. The deep body high is also useful in helping users deal with several painful conditions like lower back pain, arthritis, muscular pain and many other types of chronic pain.
