Origins, Genetics, History

Holy Grail Kush Type:  Holy Grail Kush is a descendant of the following strains:

  • OG Kush #18
  • Kosher Kush

Holy Grail Kush is a descendant of the famous OG Kush #18 and Kosher Kush strains.  These are both powerful and relaxing Kush marijuana varieties, all originally descending from the rugged Hindu Kush region which produces strong and resilient marijuana varieties.  These Kush strains were wed by DNA Genetics and Reserva Privada breeders to produce Holy Grail.  Holy Grail Kush has garnered many awards including the top spot at the 2011 High Times Cannabis Cup in the Seed Company Hybrid category.  It was the first cannabis to obtain a perfect score.

Appearance and Smell

The Holy Grail Kush plants are medium height, between 30 and 80 inches tall.  The dried nuggets of Holy Grail Kush are absolutely beautiful to behold and aromatic and tasty.  The nuggets are dark and light green, producing beautiful contrasts.  Then there is the white, powdery trichomes containing much of the THC, covering the nuggets like a powdered donut.  The orange pistils provide a psychedelic contrast to the green and white of the flower buds and trichomes.  The fragrance and taste of Holy Grail is very much natural, like any Kush.  It is a nice pine, sweet, earthy, smoke and fresh like morning dew.  It is also described as spicy, sweet, and oaky, and like healthy grass or grain.

How to Grow Holy Grail Kush Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings

Growing weed from Holy Grail Kush cannabis seeds and cuttings is rated as comparatively easy.  You will have to get in touch with a seed vendor, and you can mail-order seeds if it is allowed in your jurisdiction.  Ask your vendor to send information such as flowering time and lighting schedule to induce flowering.  Holy Grail plants are resilient to molds, mildews, damage, and other diseases.  These plants are often grown in soil and fertilizers though hydroponic systems may also be effective.

Indoors, you may want to use a 5-gallon bucket with organic soil and fertilizer.  In a hydroponic set-up, you might use a bucket filled with clay pebbles and your nutrient solution which will be made to circulate.  In soil, indoors, your bucket will need overflow holes to prevent over-watering.  You can use a tent with a reflective lining and High Discharge lamps.  A fan and exhaust can circulate the air and you will need to keep the air dry with lower humidity.  You can induce the plants to flower in nine to ten weeks with a light/dark lighting schedule that mimics natural lighting.  Once your plant’s flower, you will be ready for harvesting and drying.  You can expect a yield of about eighteen ounces per meter squared.

Outside, you will want to find a sunny dry climate.  These hearty plants can grow quite heavy arms and may need trimming and/or support.  Holy Grail plants will flower in the middle of October.  You can expect a yield of twenty-three ounces per plant.

by Madison on Holy Grail Kush Marijuana Strain

In contrast to a very famous (if not the main) stereotype about weed, I must say there are only few strains that can make me so giggly and sociable. As you could already understand, this one’s on that list. If my wife needs to wake up early in the morning she tells me to go away, otherwise she won’t have sleep at all. It’s a pity she doesn’t like marijuana and even thinks it’s only for teens. But the moment it puts a happy smile on your face, your mind (and subsequently body) thinks everything’s good in your life so all your muscles relax, but do not cause drowsiness as usual. All the problems and pain are left in the background. I’ve had surgery on my wrist and the pain wouldn’t go away for a minute, I had to forget about my hobby, playing the guitar. After several hits of this, I took my guitar, went out, set on the back porch and started playing. “Holy Grail Kush” that’s what I said when I finished the song without feeling anything in my wrist. That night I was impressed by how creative my mind can get with the help of weed. Amazing experience, so to say. It must be served on social events to help people cope with anxieties and shyness.
