Originating in Kashmir, India, the mother of Barneys Farm’s mostly Indica Vanilla Kush is Hash Plant. Hash Plant was crossed with either Afghan Kush or another unkown Kush from Afghanistan and was aptly named for its sweet taste and aroma.
This indica strain comes from Barney’s Farm in Amsterdam and clinched 2nd place overall at the 2009 High Times Cannabis Cup for the coffee shop and seed company. Bred from Afghan and Kashmir strains, this Kush beauty is a gift to the senses with her notes of vanilla, lavender, and a hint of citrus. Plants flower in 8 weeks and produce large, soft flowers that are light green with hints of orange.
Winning second place in the Cannabis Cup of 2009, this strain has been tested at more than 20 percent THC. Heavier on the body than the mind, Vanilla Kush can easily sink users into the couch and just as easily put them to sleep. Still the strain is very freeing to the mind and may be even be thought provoking. These effects can last well over two hours and users with low tolerance should be careful.
Indica Dominant Hybrid – 70% Indica / 30% Sativa
THC: 19% – 20%, CBD: 1%
This appropriately named Dutch strain has THC levels that can reach upwards of 20%, making for a relaxed body high that can be too powerful for some new users. Experienced tokers, however, can usually summon enough energy to be active despite the high. Euphoria and happiness are also common with Vanilla Kush. This strain is good for mental conditions and arthritis pain. Not surprisingly, it tastes and smells of vanilla, with sweet lavender notes. The bud has a light green appearance that is also reminiscent of vanilla. Dry mouth is likely, though other adverse affects are mild. Vanilla Kush is mostly indica (30:70 sativa/indica ratio), and it descends from a Kashmiri Hash Plant and an Afghani Kush. It’s most popular in Colorado and Oregon, though it can be found elsewhere. Vanilla Kush is easy to cultivate, making it an ideal choice for patients who grow at home, and it produces a high yield. Due to its powerful high, newcomers and occasional smokers might do well to avoid this strain. But it’s perfect for anyone in search of a nice, soothing body high.
