Queen of Hash… our award winning Allkush is a big yield indica plant that comes with a dynamic and long lasting effect thanks to its sativa influence.
The plant takes its origins from the Kush strains that produced the hash (strong and oily) which inspired many a journey along the ‘Hippie Trail’ through Pakistan and Afghanistan in the 1970s. A popular strain for growers in recent years, we spent several generations crossing Kush with Dutch genetics to provide a plant that delivers a new twist to an old classic.
Allkush has a piece of Paradise history in its genetic code. It began life as ‘Sheherazade’ (named after the heroine from an Arabian fairy tale), one of the first strains to be produced by Paradise Seeds. This plant evolved into Allkush – the mix of a classic Afghani Indica and a Southeast Asian mostly sativa strain (with some Dutch genetic engineering to enhance traditional qualities). The end result is a plant which is low, compact and bushy with little side branching and thick top buds.
As one would expect, Allkush has all the hallmarks of a classic Kush plant, producing a satisfying and distinctive odor as it approaches harvest time – described as seductively sweet and musky – with Humolene and Terpinolene terpenes evident in its profile.
Difficulty Level: Easy
This strain is easy to grow and its versatility of use (its incredibly resinous nature confirms its Kush heritage, historically associated with the production of quality hashish) makes it a popular choice with beginners as well as hardened pros.
Indoors: In the Kush tradition, the Allkush plant is compact and relatively short, and fills out rather than stretching once it flowers. A relatively fast flowering time (56-60 days), makes it a popular choice for indoor gardeners. Indoor growers enjoy the easy management the Allkush provides. It is perfect for a SOG (Sea Of Green) set ups thanks to a proliferation of big and well rounded colas.
Outdoors: Growers will reap the rewards that come from extensive sunshine, with the Allkush growing to heights of 2m and more. Allkush produces large and dense buds that are crystal coated, reflecting the plant’s ‘best hash’ heritage. This variety is more recommended for growers in southern regions where this indica will thrive under a hot sun in warmer conditions.
Allkush cannabis seeds produce a plant that will yield a very attractive harvest. The intense oil production creates sticky buds coated in frosty trichomes that are big and fat with a rock hard consistency. While this makes the harvesting and cutting process a bit of hard work, the rewards, once dried, are well worth the extra effort.
Indoor Yield: 450 g/M²
Outdoor Yield: 600g per plant
Recreational: This strain has won awards at the High Life and Argentina Cannabis Cups due to a powerful sweet flavor, an effect that is long lasting and dynamic and the superb hash making qualities of the plant. Although this is generally a good evening smoke, the sativa element (25%) prevents complete couch-lock, stimulating a ‘state of grin’ and a winning sensation that stretches from the head to the toes.
Medical: Allkush has also been recognized for its medical qualities, and is popular with some medical users who praise its effectiveness in the treatment of pain and the relief of anxiety and sleep disorders.
Allkush cannabis seeds are suitable for growing outside between 50º n.L. and 50º s.L., The plant is ready to harvest at the end of October outdoors (n.L.) and between 8 – 9 weeks indoors. Estimated yield is 450 g per m² indoors / 600 g per plant outdoors.
The Queen of Hash
Running through Allkush is a rich stream of Paradise Seeds history as this plant is an upgrade of one of the company’s earliest strains Sheherazade. It’s a 75% indica which embodies the best Kush qualities, but with an uplifting sativa element and has been an award winner over the years.
Bred from a mix of Afghani indica and a southeast Asian sativa, this strain stands out for its high resin content and musky sweet taste which has contributed to its Queen of Hash reputation. Ready to harvest after 56-60 days of flowering indoors and mid October outdoors, how does Allkush perform in the grow room? The Doc put three Allkush seeds to the test in the grow room…
Germination and Vegetative Stage
One week after all the three seeds had successfully sprouted, The Doc reported: “They all have the same size and are about 3 cm tall”, and one week later: “One can easily recognise their indica-dominant nature, with broad leaves. They are about 5 cm tall now, three internodes have emerged meanwhile.”
After two weeks of growth under two TLC 150 lights, the three Allkush plants were transplanted to 11 litre pots and, together with the other strains, placed into the actual grow room which was equipped with two Plantastar 600 W HPS lamps. The Doc: “The plants’ volume has doubled, and also side branching has started to develop. The plants are having five internodes now, growing very stout, compact and strong, the main stem is about to lignify already.
Four and a half weeks after germination, after 31 days, The Doc induced flowering by reducing the daily light period from 18 to 12 hours. The three Allkush plants at that point of time had reached a height of about 30 cm, with an amazing number of 15 internodes resulting in extremely compact and bushy plants, laden with dense branches.
The blooming quickly took over, and very early already, the first female pre-flowers became visible that shortly after became true full flowers. Two weeks after flower induction, The Doc already saw nice little flower “roses” on top of the branches that became larger and larger in the following weeks, increasingly being coated with resin glands.
Height growth noticeably continued in the first five weeks of flowering, however, to a different degree, the three plants measured about 55, 65 and 75 cm after five weeks of flowering, but still were extremely compact and bushy, exhibiting numerous thick roundish top buds on the main stem and branches. The Doc was quite excited about the immense resin gland development the Allkush plants were showing, he supposed that their resin coat would be far above average and spectacular in the end.
The plants’ smell already was highly sweet and spicy. After 42 days of flowering, he reported: “She is a plant that produces dense hard nuggets with tons of resin. One can instantly smell that she’s a Kush dominant strain. I think that in the next two weeks of flowering, a lot of things are yet to happen with their already stunning buds.
As the upper big shade leaves took away too much light, shading the lower leaves and buds, I took some of these off so that also the lower branches and buds can receive enough light to form proper thick buds.” One week later, The Doc kept on enthusing about Allkush: “The buds are still becoming harder and harder, being frosted with abundant white resin layers. Their aroma is seductively sweet and musky, heavily kushy, a true enjoyment. Flower stigmas for the most part have turned brown, so I think there’s still one week to go till harvest.” On the 60th flowering day, all the three Allkush plants had been harvested.
In the end, the three plants had arrived at heights of about 65, 75 and 85 cm, having preserved their pure indica growth pattern – thick, fat and compact – until the very end. After The Doc had slowly dried those fat rock-hard nuggets, as usual effecting a slight fermentation during the drying process, he weighed them and was stunned by the proud outcome of 330 grams which left him highly satisfied of course.
Smell and smoke report
And about the Allkush high – “Wow superb!”, to say it with one word from The Doc, the Allkush buds did deliver a first-class indica hammer with a tremendous body stone effect that lasted for a very long while. A totally dazed Doc felt like fastened to his couch at first, but after a while, the slight sativa up-high effect in the head also took place, keeping a deeply relaxed Doc from falling asleep and enabling him to finally grab that glass of water from the table and drink it! Nevertheless he feels Allkush is to be recommended for being smoked in the evening time.
The Doc put both thumbs up for the Allkush strain, he was totally taken by this Kush strain that, indeed, also did provide a lot of resinous leaf material for making hashish.
