Rainbow Kush is one of the most colorful cannabis strains on the market today. You’ll feel like you’ve found your ‘pot’ of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Surely, a rainbow-colored cannabis strain sounds just too good to be true, right? Apparently not, as Dutch breeders, Amsterdam Marijuana Seeds, have achieved just that with the Rainbow Kush strain.
This strain has continued to grow in popularity in recent years for a variety of reasons. Its combination of picture-perfect shades and its pleasant pine scent have made this strain a firm fan favorite.
Rainbow Kush is a heavily indica-dominant strain with an 85:15 indica to sativa ratio. This hybrid is often confused with the very similarly named Rainbow strain. Rainbow Kush is a cross between the legendary indica Hindu Kush, with Master Kush and Montel’s Pride.
Mirroring its full spectrum of beautiful colors, the Rainbow Kush strain offers a wide array of fragrant aromas. It is renowned for its strong piney aroma with hints of fruity sweetness and spicy notes. You can even detect a little bit of skunk in this fragrant strain.
Rainbow Kush is quite sticky to the touch, with plenty of glimmering crystals coating its magnificent, rainbow-colored buds. While in real life, a Rainbow Kush plant may not exactly resemble some of the photos that you have seen online, it is still a stunningly beautiful plant.
A Rainbow Kush plant has distinctive shades of fiery reds and vibrant oranges, pretty pinks, and bright yellows. It also has some distinctive cool-toned blues, greens, purples, and even hints of white.
Rainbow Kush is undoubtedly one of the most colorful cannabis types available in the world. With Rainbow Kush, the entire spectrum of rainbow pigments appears as the plant nears the end of its flowering stage.
This makes watching Rainbow Kush grow an almost magical experience. You get to see this plant transform from dull shades of “cannabis green,” to a magnificent display of sheer vibrancy.
As you will see from the next section, we think that Rainbow Kush plant growers will enjoy their growing experience with this strain.
A Rainbow Kush plant’s grow difficulty is rated as easy to moderate. The good news is that it can be grown indoors or outdoors. Experienced Rainbow Kush growers recommend utilizing the Sea of Green method for best results.
Rainbow Kush needs plenty of care and nutrients to grow steadily, but in the end, if done correctly, the beautiful, colorful buds will be more than worth the effort. The best types of nutrient fertilizers to utilize with this marijuana include bat guano, feather meal, soft rock phosphate, natural potash, steamed bone meal, and sea kelp. Other options, of course, work as well, but these seem to do a lot for this specific strain type.
Space is an important consideration with a Rainbow Kush plant, as it can grow up to 150cm in height indoors. Outdoors, it can stretch almost a foot taller, and it can reach up to 180cm in height.
If you are growing this plant indoors, then you can expect it to flower after around eight to nine weeks. On the other hand, if you are growing this plant outdoors, then late September or early October is the ideal time of year for harvesting.
Indoors, Rainbow Kush growers may achieve a yield of up to 16 ounces per square meter. Outdoor growers could potentially see a significantly higher return of up to 26.5 ounces per square meter with this strain.
