Las Vegas Purple Kush

Classification: Indica-dominant
Parents: Northern Lights x Hindu Kush
Growing Environment: Indoor/outdoor
Garden Skills: Beginner to intermediate
Flowering Time: 9 – 10 weeks
Medical Uses: Insomnia, chronic pain, anorexia, nausea, depression, anxiety, muscle tension/spasms
Breeder: Kyle Kushman

Buzz Rating: The flavor of LVPK is of sour, musky grapes, hash, spice and earth, with a dominating effect that can overtake an inexperienced user.

Yet another glorious strain from Kyle Kushman, comes Las Vegas Purple Kush, an excellent cross between Hindu Kush and Northern Lights. This indica-dominant bud is perfectly suited for someone who is suffering from pain, insomnia, depression, PTSD, anxiety, nausea, or many other ailments. The buds are medium-sized, neither dense nor airy, but highly frosted over with trichromes.

For those who choose to grow this strain, expect a 9 to 10 week flowering period, with a solid 4 weeks of vegetation. Also, don’t expect to come across seeds of this strain, as it’s a clone-only strain that you’ll have to get from the club. Not to worry though, since it’s a fairly popular and notorious strain, you shouldn’t have too much trouble coming across it. Good luck to you and happy growing.

Las Vegas Bubba Kush

Classification: Indica (75%)/Sativa (25%)
Parents: Bubba Kush x Blue Power
Growing Environment: Indoor/Outdoor
Flowering Time: 8 – 9 weeks
Yield: Low
Medical Uses: Pain relief, nausea, chemotherapy, insomnia
Breeder: Sin City Seeds

Buzz Rating: A heavy and sedating effect comes on rapidly and seemingly without warning with LVBK. This is a strain that definitely has the capacity for couch-lock in many users.

LVBK is unmistakable by the nearly pure white buds. This strain is so laden with trichomes that is literally appears as a white, chunky snowball. The aroma and flavor are of coffee and lemons with some berry aftertaste that lingers on the palate for a while after exhaling. This is a strain that took well over a year just to breed and has created quite a stir in the cannabis community. Renowned for its potency, LVBK is sure to never disappoint.

A great strain for beginning and advanced growers alike, LVBK will flower for eight to nine weeks and is suitable for indoor or outdoor cultivation in areas that do not receive much humidity. Look for LVBK to be ready for harvesting around the first week of October, when grown outdoors. These are hungry ladies that like to be fed generous nutrient levels, so growers should plan accordingly.

Lambo

Type: Sativa/Indica
Yield: Heavy
Flowering Time Required: between 54 and 61 days;
Cross: Jamaican Purple x Super Afghan x Jamaican Haze
Bred by: THSeeds
The Lambo strain of marijuana comes from deep in the hills of the Pacific Northwest and is known by many professional growers as being one of the best cannabis strains for guerrilla growing. She’s very well suited for doing battle with natural elements including mold, pests, drought and more. To protect herself, she develops big, sticky, resinous trichromes – and lots of them! Her large buds offer incredible aroma and taste that dynamically seems to morph with different toke phases. On the inhale, you will get hints of almonds and while exhaling, lime-citrus/vanilla.

Buzz Rating: Machine Gun Repetitive Blasts Of Sativa Excellence!

Rip into a water bong loaded fat with Lambo cannabis and you’ll take off into the clear sky on a head trip fit for royalty. The Lambo marijuana strain crosses Jamaican Haze, Super Afghan and Jamaican purple to yield a medicinal strain that delivers exotic and versatile Sativa-dominant power. She also retains just enough Indica characteristics to be an effective analgesic. Breeder THSeeds recommends growing Lambo marijuana indoors with a 60-day flowering period. And yes, the name was supposed to be Rambo, but legal issues forced a change. You can’t beat Sly in court…

Lady Purple

Classification: Indica-dominant
Parents: Afghan Kush x Purple Kush
Growing Environment: Indoor/Outdoor
Garden Skills: Beginner to Intermediate
Flowering Time: 8 – 10 weeks
Height: Short
Yield: Low to Moderate
Medical Uses: Pain relief, anorexia, chemotherapy, insomnia, anxiety
Breeder: De Sjamaan Seeds

Buzz Rating: A heavy body stone is what you can expect from Lady Purple. Don’t go shopping on this one or you’ll likely end up buying every munchie item you come across

Don’t be fooled by the looks of this bud. It really has no purple. In fact, these buds come in small, but highly dense forms with a light green color and very short, light orange pistils. The aroma is of pine and Kush, with flavors of pine, earth, Kush and mint. Expect to sit on your couch and eat everything in sight. This is a great strain for nausea associated with chemotherapy, anorexia and insomnia and should mostly be enjoyed during the PM hours. Eighths of this bud tend to go for around $50 to $55 in most West Coast dispensaries. The flowering time has a somewhat large window of 8 to 10 weeks, with most growers harvesting around 9 to 10 weeks. These ladies love to be fed lots of nutrients with a solid 2-week flush. They’ll do best when grown in soil but can thrive in practically any environment except a greenhouse, as they are somewhat prone to bud rot, due to the extreme density of the buds. They have a fairly high calyx-to-leaf ratio for an indica and most growers like to make hash or other concentrates out of the trimmings and bottom buds. This strain is the Kush-lover’s dream. Pure Kush taste with a similar Afghani/Kush effect. So what are you waiting for? Go grab some clones or seeds today to add to your medical garden.

Lady Liberty

Classification: Sativa-dominant
Parents: Undisclosed
Growing Environment: Indoor/Outdoor
Garden Skills: Beginner
Flowering Time: 7 – 9 weeks (indoor) or October to November (outdoor)
Height: Medium to Tall
Yield: Heavy
Medical Uses: Depression, anxiety, pain relief
Breeder: Liberty Seeds

Buzz Rating: An immediate, intense and incredibly cerebral effect takes place nearly upon exhale. The high produced definitely has a trippy and psychedelic side, however at the same time it is a clear-thinking, cognitively creative effect that is great for any time of day. Your day couldn’t be started off better than with a few hits of Lady Liberty.

Depending on the phenotype, the buds of Lady Liberty can range from a blue, almost lavender, color to medium green with no hints of any other colors. In either phenotype, the density of the buds is very good and they always have a thick coating of potent trichomes. The blue/lavender buds are more of an 50/50 sativa/indica variety, while the green buds are much more on the sativa side of the spectrum. The breeder hasn’t disclosed what the parents of this strain are, only that it is a sativa-dominant variety. In any case, it doesn’t really matter too much, since these buds are so potent. In fact Lady Liberty also Best Sativa at the 2005 Harvest Cup. Liberty Seeds is one of those breeders that doesn’t release a lot of strains to the public, but when they do the strains are absolutely fantastic, and always a treat to smoke upon.

La Blanca

Classification: Indica-dominant
Parents: Great White Shark x Skunk #1
Growing Environment: Indoor/Outdoor
Garden Skills: Beginner to Intermediate
Flowering Time: 8 – 9 weeks
THC Content: 15%
Medical Uses: Pain relief, inflammation, migraines, nausea
Breeder: Kannabia Seeds

Buzz Rating: While the high could certainly last a bit longer than a half-hour, the potency of the high does not disappoint. We recommend smoking an additional bowl than would be the normal amount, in order to compensate for the lack of longevity in the effect.

La Blanca takes after her Great White Shark mother in appearance. There is a nice coating of trichomes, with many curly, electric-orange pistils. The flavor and aroma is more indicative of the Skunk #1 father, but with a little bit of berry flavor from the mother, usually present on the exhale. La Blanca has a pleasant lingering aftertaste of skunk and fruit. For increased smoking pleasure, try vaporizing La Blanca, where the effect is almost psychedelic and the flavors are notably enhanced.

It’s recommended to vegetate La Blanca around 6 or 7 weeks, since it will only double in height, upon forcing flowering. Once flowering these ladies will be ready for harvest right around 8 weeks later. They do not respond very well at all to even average amounts of nutrients. This is one of those strain where growers will want to start out giving these ladies very low levels of nutrients and gradually increase. La Blanca is so sensitive to nutrient burn that it’s recommended to only feed about half of the recommended dosage on the manufacturer’s bottle. Other than that, La Blanca is easy to cultivate and responds well to various types of training methods.

L.A.P.D

Classification: Sativa (50%)/indica (50%)
Growing Environment: Greenhouse/indoor/outdoor
Flowering Time: 7 – 9 weeks
Yield: Moderate (2.5 – 3.5 oz. per plant)
Medical Uses: Chronic pain relief, anxiety, cramps, multiple sclerosis, insomnia
Breeder: California Bean Bank

Buzz Rating: On the inhale, flavors of red wine, grapes and earth are present, with a sour, zesty and spicy finish. L.A.P.D. is more typical of an indica in terms of effect, causing relaxation and a stress-free environment.

As is apparent by the parents of this bud, L.A.P.D derived its name from a combination of initials of L.A. Confidential and Purple Diesel. This strain is common all along the West Coast, and incredibly popular in Southern California dispensaries, as the name implies. The buds of this marvelous weed are frosty, dark-green with streaks of purple strewn about the tight, dense buds. This bud smells danky, fruity, sour and minty and should have a decent filter to drown out the smell that will erupt from whatever room you have her growing in.

While she’s suitable for any type of growing environment, she produces the best yields of high quality medicine when cultivated in a greenhouse. She prefers dry temperate climates when grown outdoors and is resistant to molds unless grown in a humid climate. She’ll finish around the middle of October outdoors or in a greenhouse, and often flowers for just 7 weeks inside. Indoors, she can also be cultivated in a sea of green or screen of green garden.

The initial 15 minutes of the high from L.A.P.D. begins very cerebrally, but then tapers off to a much more sedated yet not couch-lock-inducing body stone. This strain is one of those strains that is highly potent and usually cheap, going for between $40 and $50 an eighth for top-shelf medication.

Kush Medicine

Classification: Indica (70%)/Sativa (30%)
Parents: (SFV OG x Sour Diesel) x Pine Tar Kush
Growing Environment: Indoor/Outdoor
Flowering Time: 9 weeks
Height: Medium
Medical Uses: Nausea, pain relief, insomnia, HIV/AIDS
Breeder: Tropical Seeds Company

Buzz Rating: Perhaps the most unique thing about this strain is the fact that the high reaches full intensity within just a minute or two. The initial 30 seconds or so are a rushing cerebral trip, that rapidly transitions into a powerful and sedating body high. Kush Medicine is a serious couch-lock type of strain so plan accordingly.

The buds produced from these ladies are small, round and dense. They give off a pungent, complex and rich aroma of fine leather, mahogany, incense, citrus and Kush. Flavors are of sour Kush and wine, making for quite a treat on the palate.

While Kush Medicine is not suitable for greenhouse cultivation or areas of high humidity, it should thrive in just about any other environment. These ladies will tolerate cold relatively well and should also deal well with heat, as long as there’s not too much humidity. When grown indoors this strain will flower right around nine weeks, while its outdoor counterpart should be ready to come off the vine around the beginning of October, when grown in the Northern Hemisphere. Expect to feed these ladies very low nutrient levels in the beginning, while gradually increasing the levels. Kush Medicine is particularly prone to nute burn, so growers need to keep that in mind. Yields are expected to be below average with this strain.

Kryptonite

Classification: Indica-dominant
Growing Environment: Indoor/Outdoor
Flowering Time: 8 – 10 weeks
THC Range: 25% – 30%
Medical Uses: Stress, pain relief, insomnia, anxiety
Breeder: Subcool

Buzz Rating: Extremely danky, piny taste, leaving you with an incredible stony, Indica high.

Kryptonite by no means comes from a weak parentage. To the contrary it is preceded by the famously potent OG Kush. Kryptonite emits a pleasant danky, Kushy aroma that will penetrate the walls of your house. The buds are light-green in color with an incredibly frosty hue. This is in large part due to the astonishing amount of tri-chromes that are decadently layered over the solid green nugs. The tri-chromes have even been known to layer themselves over the pistils on versions of this strain grown by certain farmers. This strain is a favorite among cannabis connoisseurs due to the usual 25% THC content found in this strain. It is an F1 hybrid capable of sending the user into a deep, indica medicated state. The flavor of Kryptonite is piney, pungent and danky with an unmistakable OG Kush taste, with a slightly chemical aftertaste. This powerful strain is not for the novice or beginning patient. Be prepared to delve into the world of Kryptonite.

Ken’s Kush

Classification: Indica-dominant
Parents: Undisclosed
Growing Environment: Indoor/Outdoor (warm climates only for outdoor)
Flowering Time: 11 – 13 weeks
Height: Medium to Tall
Yield: Moderate
Medical Uses: Multiple sclerosis, insomnia, pain relief, migraines, asthma, anxiety, anorexia, chemotherapy
Breeder: Grand Daddy Purp

Buzz Rating: Ken’s Kush provides a powerful balance between indica and sativa. This long-lasting effect will have you very hungry and relaxed, without causing couch lock. This strain is good for medicating in the morning, afternoon or night.

These buds are most recognizable by their very small, but very dense and round shape. The typical bud of Ken’s Kush is no bigger than a quarter. They have dark pistils that are almost red and a decent layering of sticky, potent trichomes. The breeder won’t disclose the genetics of Ken’s Kush, but that just adds to the mystique of this wondrously potent strain. The flavors are of skunk and earth, with no aftertaste. Be warned that Ken’s Kush is a serious cough-inducer. Asthma patients should either vaporize or orally ingest Ken’s Kush. It’s recommended for asthmatics, but not necessarily in the form of smoke. Eighths of Ken’s Kush usually require a $50 to $55 donation at a dispensary. Ken’s Kush can be successfully cultivated indoors or outdoors, provided the outdoor area it’s being grown in has mild weather through the beginning of November, when it will be ready for harvest. Indoors, expect to wait 11 – 13 weeks for these ladies to finish, at which point they will provide an above average harvest (usually around 0.75 grams per watt of light used. They don’t tend to respond particularly well to being grown hydroponically, so that is definitely something to keep in mind. The breeder only has non-feminized seeds, but for those looking to grow 100% organically, that’s a good thing.
