Rainbow Kush is a famous strain due to its multiple colors and the pine aroma. People can find it at dispensaries as simply “Rainbow”. A 50/50 balanced or slightly Indica-dominant strain, Rainbow Kush has slightly above average THC at 17 percent and average CBD of 1 percent.
Several breeders have attempted to perfect this strain. Dutch growers, Amsterdam Marijuana Seeds (AMS), state that they achieved their version of the Rainbow Kush strain by crossing Master Kush and Hindu Kush. Lifetime Seeds from Spain created theirs by crossing Dancehall with Blueberry.
When you go to purchase this strain, you might be lured by marketing claims by the breeder, “It’s the most colorful strain ever invented in looks and flavor.” If you look at images on websites or magazines, you will definitely find pictures of rainbow colored cannabis, and those pictures are amazing. However, in real life, this bud may not look like those enhanced images or measure up to the marketing claims.
