This three way cross, Rainbow Kush, is a descendant of the legendary Master Kush, the even more legendary Hindu Kush, and Montel’s Pride. It’s indica-dominant, but the exact ratio of sativa to indica isn’t clear. THC levels hover between 17% and 22%, making Rainbow Kush a very potent medical selection for the treatment of anxiety, chronic pain, stress, depression, fatigue, nausea, and muscle spasms. The indica genes propel the high in this strain, which comes with a deeply calming body buzz balanced by happy, focused cerebral effects. CBD concentrations are roughly one half of 1 percent, which is too low to suggest this as good treatment for conditions that respond to CBD, such as childhood epilepsy. Rainbow Kush produces green and purple nugs with red hairs; its smell is Skunky and Kushy with notes of pine, while the flavor is reminiscent of pine trees. The negatives associated with this strain include dry mouth, dry eyes, dizziness, paranoia, and limited headaches. Also known simply as Rainbow, Rainbow Kush can be found at multiple medical marijuana shops in the Pacific Northwest, Montana, Arizona, and Colorado.
Rainbow Kush is a famous strain due to its multiple colors and the pine aroma. People can find it at dispensaries as simply “Rainbow”. A 50/50 balanced or slightly Indica-dominant strain, Rainbow Kush has slightly above average THC at 17 percent and average CBD of 1 percent.
Several breeders have attempted to perfect this strain. Dutch growers, Amsterdam Marijuana Seeds (AMS), state that they achieved their version of the Rainbow Kush strain by crossing Master Kush and Hindu Kush. Lifetime Seeds from Spain created theirs by crossing Dancehall with Blueberry.
When you go to purchase this strain, you might be lured by marketing claims by the breeder, “It’s the most colorful strain ever invented in looks and flavor.” If you look at images on websites or magazines, you will definitely find pictures of rainbow colored cannabis, and those pictures are amazing. However, in real life, this bud may not look like those enhanced images or measure up to the marketing claims.
