There’s a reason why the Mango Kush hemp strain has earned quite a prominent reputation across the market, aside from its flavor and effects. Brandishing a family tree that’s iconic to say the least, the herbs that came together to create the blissful melody that is Mango Kush aren’t any less prominent in their own respects.
The first parent – the ever glorious Hindu Kush – is one of the most coveted original hemp strains that surfaced during the hay days of cannabis. A pure indica, this landrace provides nothing short of the unhinged relaxation that comes straight from the source. Cultivated by Mother Nature herself, Hindu Kush is as close to organic as we can get, offering the full benefits of indica cannabis in an untouched, unspoiled form.
Although not quite as big a celebrity as the Hindu Kush landrace, the Mango strain does have its own properties to boast about. Another indica, this strain offers slightly lighter effects than its Hindu Kush co-parent, but it does deliver something completely different to the table. You guessed it – flavor. Packed with the sweet nectarine taste of fresh tropical fruit, the Mango hemp strain is often included in breeding mixes to maximize its flavor and instill its toe-curling taste in its resulting offspring.
At a glance, the Mango Kush hemp strain looks almost like, well, a tropical fruit. The bright green nugs are painted with the glorious combination of forest, neon, and avocado green, creating a blissful exterior that’s fresh to the eyes. An unruly cage of orange pistils travel throughout the nugs, adding contrast of color and texture for a more dynamic and dramatic look. But what really adds to the drama is the extensive layer of trichomes that covers every inch of the leaves.
The white fuzz almost blurs out the colors underneath with their ultra-dense presence. And of course, as you might already know, the more trichomes a nug has, the more cannabinoid content it stands to produce. But other than that, these trichomes are also responsible for the production of terpenes. With such a rich coating of fuzzy white hairs, it becomes no surprise that the Mango Kush strain possesses such a strong aroma.
Sticking your snout into the jar, you’ll find that the herb has an impressively accurate mango aroma. This blends together with other notes of fruit like orange and pineapple, all drizzled with the sweet nectarine fragrance of sugary juice. To the more refined olfactories, the nugs give off a slight, subtle hint of bitterness that underscores the sweetness to add a little extra contrast and to highlight the delightful mango fragrance.
What’s especially delightful about the Mango Kush strain is that it tastes exactly as it smells. The mango and fruit fragrances are perfectly mirrored by the taste, and the subtlety of the gasoline finish is detectable yet not overbearing, still letting you enjoy the flavor encounter without the aftertaste of jet engine fuel boring holes through your tongue and in your throat.
The smoke itself is relatively smooth and hitch-free. Light and fast moving, it glides effortlessly through the throat and down into the lungs, taking an almost air-like quality to it. That said, the Mango Kush hemp strain makes a good choice for low tolerance users who might prefer an herb that doesn’t put up too much of a fight as it courses through your system.
For most, two tokes should be more than enough to achieve the perfect balance of effects. A happy, giggly disposition should take over not long after that last drag. The sativa-leaning effects are the first to take shape, inspiring in you a light, carefree disposition that’s perfect for casual conversation and social encounters. If you’re worried about getting too flappy with your jaws, it helps to know that the Mango Kush strain is perfectly controlled, letting you enjoy the benefits of its sativa chemistry without getting dumb.
