A very well balanced Sativa-Indica Strain

Generally, even strains that combine a Sativa and an Indica background tend to lean heavily towards one side or the other in both genetic background and effect. However, Candy Kush Express Fast Flowering is unique even amongst Indica/Sativa hybrids: at 40 percent sativa and 60 percent Indica, this Kush strain is about as close to a true, evenly mixed hybrid that there is available. This translates to a unique blend of both Indica and Sativa effects.

The Sweet Special strain is part of Candy Kush’s direct genetic background. Among other things, this strain is known for a sweet taste and hearty, durable plants. These assets translate to Candy Kush, as the plants are physically sturdy for growing indoors or out, and the taste is always pleasingly sweet. The legendary Royal Kush is the other genetic parent of Candy Kush. Royal Kush is a famously Indica-heavy strain, being descended itself from the inexpressibly potent Afghani Kush. Both Afghani and Royal Kush are prized amongst insomniacs for their sedative effects, and more casual and/or recreational smokers note the heavy “couch-lock” present in these strains.

A mixed physical and euphoric high

Since this strain does have slightly more Indica in its genetic background, a strong physical stoniness is present. However, the Sativa element of this strain shows itself in a heady, soaring euphoria. The Sativa aspects of Candy Kush help balance the effects, giving the soothing effects an unusual yet welcome energetic quality. This variety is gaining popularity for its unique blend of uplifting and deeply relaxing effects. The most effective medical uses of this strain are stress and pain relief. The low CBD content helps regulate the sedating effect, meaning that this strain has the capacity to relax without completely knocking users out.

It is notable that even with low CBD, the THC content of this strain weighs in at a very hefty 18 percent, making it one of the more potent varieties available. If grown outdoors, these plants yield at least 450 dried grams or up to 500 grams per plant if grown outdoors, or 475 to 525 dried grams when grown indoors. Since this is a Fast Flowering strain, flowering takes only seven weeks. When growing outdoors it is best to schedule for an early September harvest. When fully grown, the plants will reach a height of up to 100 centimetres indoors, or up to 170 centimetres outdoors.

Good strain for beginners

Like all Fast Flowering strains, these Candy Kush plants make for an easy growing process. Even novice growers will find that it is surprisingly easy to quickly yield dense, high-quality buds with through a straightforward growing process. Candy Kush Express Fast Flowering is ideal for growers who are interested in an unusually balanced strain that is easy to grow quickly in either indoor or outdoor conditions.

    Title : Confident Optimism
    Comment : First, customer service at Royal Queen were very helpful in the run up to placing this order. Second, I am a fan of Royal Queen; everything that I have had off them has worked well. I have decided to take a chance with this fast version. I am at 52N, not ideal for most strains. However, the early September finish predicted for this fast version is what has decided me to give it a go. Where I am, mold becomes a problem in October when most photoperiod varieties finish. I am confidently optimistic that this strain will grow in my polytunnel. I'll let you know! The free post in Europe is a big plus as is the efficiency of the company. Royal Queen can be trusted to deliver.
