Top Cannabis Strains: Kush Mints

Oct 15, 2021

A perfectly balanced hybrid strain containing 50% indica and 50% sativa, the Kush Mint strain is a potent cross between Animal Mints and the well-loved Bubba Kush. This strain is considered a top choice for those looking for a minty rush with well-balanced mind and body effects, thanks to its 22 to 28% average THC level. Its delectable sharp minty flavour is laced with hints of fresh coffee and earthy cookies, giving a full-bodied taste that’s almost as satisfying as a snack.

In this post, Smokey’s will give you a rundown on everything you need to know about this flavourful and unique strain. Before continuing reading, head over to our shop to fill up on all your smoking essentials and more!

A Brief History of Kush Mints Strain 

This high-potency strain is crafted by Seed Junky Genetics in Southern California, one of the best places in the United States to purchase medicinal cannabis. Seed Junky is known to produce true-to-type clones for novice to high-level growers in California, and the Kush Mints strain is a true example of this claim. Their experts have also crossed a Kush Mints phenotype with other hybrids, such as Wedding Cake and Animal Cookies. Its direct parent, Bubba Kush, has always been considered as a total “knock-out strain'' and the Kush Mints have fully inherited this trait.

As with all evenly balanced strains, Kush Mints has a pleasurable mixture of physical and cerebral effects that can benefit tokers of all levels. The effects of Kush Mints open with a sense of relaxation that will make you feel like you want to kick back and take it easy. Upon inhale, the effects begin with a warming tingle in the spine, filling you with a sense of penetrating relaxation. 

The relaxation comes in waves and flows outwards through the limbs until you feel completely calm in the body and mind. However, if you’re not careful with the tokes, you might feel pretty sleepy. With the strong relaxing effect and high level of potency, the Kush Mints strain is believed to be ideal for treating certain conditions such as chronic pain, nausea, or appetite problems.

Expect flowering after week eight garnering 40.64 cm in height. To ensure proper yield, set the daytime temperature to 20 C and the overnight temperature to 15 C. After the initial harvest, a two-week dry trim, and a three-week cure is expected.
