  1. 1) There is no family of marijuana; Cannabis is the family
    marijuana is the name made up to give cannabis a bad name
    2) Kush is NOT Indica strain, it is Afghanica
    3) Haze originated in Hawaii and existed for many years before being crossed in Santa Cruz California with another variant of Haze and is now the current dominant phenotype. It was not originated in California or Jamaica.
    4) Haze does not have a sweet and sour taste, it is considered to have SPICY and CITRUS based Terpenes, specifically Myrcene and Pinene. This specific profile is very unique to Haze and is used to ID this strain via lab analysis of the Terpene range. Kush is “Earthy” and “Pine” smelling. Grape is some other fantasy you have about Kush. Not in reality at all.
    5) “Kush is much taller than Haze.” No idea where this person is getting their “facts” but you couldn’t be much more wrong. Haze has been typified as being a medium sized Sativa with a medium yield. Kush is a giant with a huge yield and originated in Hunza and the Hindu Kush but was crossed with the hash plants of Swat Valley over 100 years ago.
    6) Kush is the backbone of California Cannabis genetics, it was bred with many plants because of it’s (large) size and immunity to many pests and diseases and these qualities made it the best strain to cross more delicate but exotic plants such as Train Wreck and Maui Wowie which are susceptible to molds and pests.
    7) “When considering the genetics, there is difference between Kush and Haze”. This is the most ridiculous statement in all of the above text. OF COURSE THEY’RE DIFFERENT! Stating the obvious is a waste of time and makes you look quite uninformed.
    8) Again I must point out that Kush as we know it today is more Sativa than Indica. This would depend on which phenotype you encounter. There are so many variants of both plants that it is very important to note which strain you’re talking about.

    I hope I have undone some of the misconceptions put forth in this erroneous article but in addition I would also like to remind folks that classification of CANNABIS (marijuana is a derogatory name)
    has been for many years skewed by the illegality that pervaded Botany and Medicine as well as society:
    Sativa, Indica, Ruderalis and Afghanica are the major speciation of Cannabis. Ruderalis has been used currently as a CBD rich plant that auto-flowers (instead of using photoperiodicity) to cross with other plants to increase their CBD content. Ruderalis has narrow, short leaves and growth is in extremely bushy, squat plants. AC/DC, Harlequin and Charlotte’s Web all have Ruderalis heritage. Afghanica is often mistaken for Indica, it is closer to Sativa in effects and produces large plants with high yields. It’s origins are in Hindu Kush. Indica has been cultivated for hasheesh for thousands of years and has remained a stable and useful strain due to the careful cultivation and crossing with other Indicas. Indica is generally more sedating by nature of it’s THC content as well as a varying palette of Terpenes. In fact many of the observed differences between Indica and Sativa are due to Terpene spectrum not THC %’s. Terpenes and THC/CBD amounts are responsible for what a lot of people relate to as strain qualities but not always true. There are many “couchlock” Sativas for example.
