Vanilla Kush combines a fast flowering Afghan strain with the unique Kashmir seeds collected by Barneys in the mid-1980s. Vanilla Kush marries the Indica strength of the best Afghani genetics with the high mountain aromas of the Kashmir valley. Vanilla Kush grows to a medium height with bushy side branches. These give healthy yields of dense colas, covered with beautiful red and gold calyx. The flowers then cure to produce magnificent buds that encapsulate the scent of wild vanilla and pine. The result is a strong, long lasting and relaxing high.
