For another installment of the top five suggestions from Seedsman, we’re going to be bringing you a list comprised of just kush varieties. Kush, is the slang term assigned to the prized cannabis genetics from Afghanistan. These renowned high-altitude indicia strains are known for their deep colors and heavily sedating highs. These strains are also known for being vigorous in the grow, and frosty when it comes time to cut and cure.
If you’re looking for a high potency and reliable indica, this is a set of strains you’re going to want to comb through – anything with a kush genetic is going to be heavily sedating and usually quite potent.
5. Lastly, I want you to pick out your own kush to go along with the other strains in this top five article. Violator Kush from Barney’s Farm is going to be a thicker and more dense bud that really exceeds in that “in-the-hand” feel category I just got into. Vanilla Kush (also from Barney’s Farm) is going to be a little bit of a lighter feel in the hand, smller and stickier buds. Violator would be a good choice if you like bud structure and Vanilla would be a really good call if you want sweetness.
2. Critical Kush Feminised Seeds from Dinafem is a kush strain that absolutely needs some looking into. Claiming success from its parents with Emerald OG and skunk genetics – this is a reputable breeder with some very potent parents. This kushy strain is going to have a slightly lighter and zippier high. You’ll find citrus smells and skunky notes at play with this cerebral and hybrid style of high.
1. Buddha Kush OG Feminised Seeds from Big Buddha seeds is a strain that really gives credit to the Kush genealogy. This company has had successes with strains like Big Buddha Cheese and many other of their winning feminized seeds. This strain is going to produce a larger erthy and pine scented bud that will be available in 65 to 75 days.
4. Ceres Kush Feminised Seeds from Ceres Seeds is a strain that can be recommended on structure alone. The overall dense and frosty nugs of this genetic background could earn a spot on this list on their own. This strain is going to exceed and earn its worth in the “in-the-hand” feel. These are dense, and stickly little buds that will be as potent as they are visually stunning. Regardless of you knowledge of this company, give them a try purely based on the bud reviews as far as quality and structure go.
3. Master Kush from Dutch Passion is no mild walk in the park. Just like any of the first two kush strains, Master Kush from Dutch Passion is going to be a heavy hitting and full-bodied high. This strain prides itself on being a F1 cross between two very potent landrace Hindu-Kush Strains. This bud is going to have very sharp and skunky smells. Maybe notes of a freshly cleaned kitchen – sharp and pungent chemical notes that are piercing and strong like vinegar.

Maxwell Bradford lists his Top 5 Kush Strains for 2015
“To my initial dismay, the entire recreational lineup had been bought from a wholesale grower because Mile High’s recreational crops weren’t ready yet. But there was good news: My budtender said the wholesaler was Kind Love, a Glendale medical dispensary that has a great reputation. So I asked her what strain was the hardest to keep on the shelf. She said the alpha of the lineup was White Fire OG — a thoroughbred of a strain born from Fire OG and The White genetics. The nugs on display at Mile High were a beautiful mixture of green, white, purple and orange; this love-at-first-sight cost $12.12 per gram after tax.”

“Not wasting any time, I quickly narrowed my posible choice to two very qualified candidates: Bubba OG, the indica-dominant equivalent of Jay Z and Beyoncé’s child; and Ogre Kush, a fruity strain with some iconic genetics of its own. Watching Shrek stoned on some Ogre sounded like a great way to fall asleep and kick-start an interesting dream, so I bought a half-eighth for $18 with the discount.”
But which strains rose above the rest? Here the ten best strains I’ve reviewed in 2015:
“Lavender Jazzberry Jam is a house strain that can only be found at THC. Comprising Afghani Skunk, Blueberry and Lavender genetics, this beauty has syrupy bubble-gum aromas that would be right at home in a candy shop. Its sugary sweetness didn’t completely kill off the skunkiness, though, as each sniff was rounded out by a Pepé Le Pew after-scent.”
1) Bordello at Kind Love
4380 East Alameda Avenue, Glendale
“A midnight bowl brought the salivating sweetness I expected, but it was rounded out with a firm earthiness as well. It’s one thing to enjoy the taste of a strain, but taking hit after hit because I can’t get enough of the flavor is something entirely different. The exquisite taste made me overzealous, and I smoked two bowls too many before I even realized it. One would’ve worked just fine to enhance my appetite and then put me to sleep. Three made me a drooling vegetable.”
“Blue OG is bred with Blueberry Moonshine, Blueberry and OG Kush genetics, making a slightly sativa-dominant hybrid that smells like a blueberry-banana-pineapple smoothie: simultaneously sweet, savory and sour. All of those fruit notes, combined with a crisp earthiness, made me want to jump inside Blue OG’s bottle and set up camp for a few days to soak it in, and bright, frosty trichomes glimmered in the sun as I admired the dense nug. Some of these beautiful Colorado buds tug at my heart as I grind them up, and Blue OG’s sweet-smelling cries were deeply felt.”
