Khalifa Kush, also known as “KK”, is grown exclusively by growers who have deals with Wiz’s company Khalifa Kush Enterprises. One of the facilities is Reef Dispensaries that harvests a each full room of the cannabis 5 times a year. At any given time they’ll have around 400 plants of Khalifa Kush growing ready to harvest. We would expect this strain to remain exclusive so that it doesn’t become another generic cannabis strain that can be bought anywhere and to ensure that the strain your getting is the real thing.
Khalifa Kush Lineage & Appearance
Not much is known about the lineage of Khalifa Kush due to a confidentiality agreement between Wiz Khalifa and the growers. From what Wiz has said in the past, we know its a phenotype of OG Kush that took years to create but no one except for Wiz and the growers know exactly how to create this cannabis strain.
Khalifa Kush is a bright green with a lot of frosty trichomes and orange/white pistil hairs. The plant has a medium height that doesn’t grow too tall making it very manageable for indoor growing.
Khalifa Kush Flavors & Aroma
The Khalifa Kush strain smells like fruit, pine with earthy undertones. The flavors and scent hit you the same way the THC takes effect, its pleasant but takes effect right away. The flavor is very fruity and smooth, a bit like lemon but the smoke can be quite harsh which makes even experienced users cough.
Khalifa Kush Strain Effects
Soon after inhaling the smoke from Khalifa Kush you can feel the head rush and effects kicking in quickly. The cough worthy smoke form the strain brings on effects of being happy, sociable, relaxed, euphoric, and creative. Its also very common for this strain to cause users to have the “giggles”. Most users say they enjoy this strain and find it to be one of their favorites especially those looking for something more unique in the hybrid line.
Because this is a high THC strain, some negative effects may include paranoia and anxiety if too much is consumed or for those sensitive to THC content. The typical effects of dry eyes and mouth are also expected.
Khalifa Kush Strain THC & CBD Levels
The THC levels in Khalifa Kush are very high and can range from 20-28% THC. Since this strain is a phenotype of OG Kush which is usually around 25% THC it makes sense that the Khalifa Kush strain would be in the same range. The CBD levels are very low under 0.50% which doesn’t do much to counteract or balance out the effects from the THC.
Medical Benefits of Khalifa Kush
This cannabis strain can be good for depression, fatigue, stress, pain, appetite. While some may prefer a stronger sativa to use as a “wake and bake” strain, Khalifa Kush can be used during the day. As a hybrid it does have some indica qualities that are very relaxing but it’s other sativa qualities can have inspiring and creative effects. So for medical users that need high THC strains for their particular use, Khalifa Kush can be quite effective. The THC in this strain can be good for inflammation and blood flow for people needing those therapeutic benefits.
Commercial Uses & Products
In Canada, Wiz Khalifa has partnered with Supreme Cannabis to offer Khalifa Kush oils which were made available to the public in early July of 2019 on Canada’s West Coast. KKE oils are Canada’s debut recreational oils which contain high levels THC. This partnership with Supreme Cannabis will make distribution for many of Khalifa Kush Enterprise’s products across Canada much easier and we would expect to see the Khalifa Kush strain arriving here in the near future as well to make the most of that distribution channel.
