L.A. Peyote Kush is an indica-dominant strain bred by crossing the clone-only L.A. Kush with Peyote Purple. LA Kush's origins are shrouded in mystery with some claims that it is derived from an OG Kush pheno-type, possibly crossed with Diesel, while another story has it that it hailed from Orange County in California and was grown from a single bag-seed. Peyote Purple, meanwhile, is an S1 back-cross of Bubba Kush and is known for its high THC potential as well as its deep purple, almost black, appearance towards the end of flowering.
L.A. Kush is 90% indica and takes 8 - 9 weeks to complete the flowering phase. The scent of mint pervades the grow room while earthy flavours of menthol and pine have some diesel/chemmy notes. With THC between 19 - 21% the effect is potent yet quite upbeat and it is certainly no couch-lock strain. Uplifting, happy, physically relaxing and mentally creative while also helping with anxiety and depression.
Peyote Purple is another indica-dominant strain with 90% indica genetics. It is derived from a single purple pheno-type which was back-crossed for several generations to cement its qualities. This plant also takes 8 - 9 weeks of flowering before it is ready to harvest producing average yields of anything-but-average weed. The THC potential of this strain is very high with plants attaining between 18 - 28%. Its name is attributed to its headiness as this indica offers some pronounced cerebral effects with a relaxing yet uplifting high which can leave smokers sleepy and somewhat unfocused with heavier use. Therapeutically it has been recommended for treating chronic pain, cramps, Insomnia, muscle spasms and stress.
