This Kush strain is ideal for any Indica lovers, it comes directly from the huge mountain range which gives the strain its name. The Hindu Kush lies in the west of the Himalayas which lies in the borders of Pakistan and India. This region is one of the most important trade-routes between the Middle East, the Far East, and central Asia. This strain was carefully bred and selected over many generations, always staying in the same gene-pool, and was selected primarily for its amazing stability and quality. The consistency and uniformity of the seeds produced by this strain is unrivalled which makes it ideal for uniform indoor crops. It can also flourish in the outdoors as long as it is in a warmer climate. It is a strong and reliable strain which flowers quickly and can thrive even when tackled by a novice grower. Hindu Kush's scent is a subtle sandalwood and its potency is extremely high for a non-hybrid strain. It has the effect that high altitude Indicas are famed for, a mellow and uplifting effect which completely avoids the energy draining effect of some Indica hybrids. In order to maintain the purity of the strain it is sold in regular seeds.
Regular seeds are still highly sought after and extremely popular all over the world, especially favoured by old school growers. Regular seeds give a level of simplicity which many still prefer as well as a promise of purity. Many growers and breeders prefer to know that a strain, especially one as perfect as Hindu Kush, has not been genetically tampered with. There are a few other positives to using regular seeds, for example for breeding. Breeding with regular seeds is a far simpler process than attempting to use two mother plants which certainly can result in a higher level of uniformity and quality but is an extremely intricate and complex process. With regular seeds the crop will be a roughly even split of male and female plants, for the breeder this allows a greater level of choice when selecting the parent plants. Since the breeder can select the finest male and the most productive female to pass on their genes they can still control the quality of their future crops with far less hassle.
This plant certainly thrives in a warmer environment, perhaps Mediterranean. It is a compact plant which is perfect for those who may be short on growing space whilst still giving a medium yield. It has an extremely short flowering period of 45 - 50 days and is 100% pure Indica.
