About King Kong Strain
King Kong strain is an indica-dominant hybrid with the sedative force to bring down even the legendary, skyscraper-climbing beast himself. It’s a cross between the infamous Chronic and the speciality, landrace-derived strain Ed Rosenthal Super Bud. King Kong was created by Spanish breeder Dr. Underground, who has also crafted boutique strains like Painkiller and Brooklyn Mango. King Kong’s potency has been measured at between 14% and 21% THC.
King Kong strain impresses with large flowers that adhere in a distinct cone shape. These nuggets hold the dense and solid structure. Most notable about these flowers is their colour contrast. The leaves are a dark shade of forest green, while the hairy pistils stand out in bright orange. Cloudy white trichomes dot the already-colourful buds, accounting for their psychoactivity and giving them a very sticky texture.
King Kong has a dank, earthy odour with unmistakable highlights of skunk. Hanging out underneath is a fruity tang that keeps the strain from smelling too acrid. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking open the flowers reveals a surprising floral scent. Those enjoying this strain in public should take precautions, as it can be a particularly pungent and indiscreet smoke.
King Kong strain hits relatively quickly for an indica. Before the strain’s skunky taste has left their mouths, users feel a weightiness in their limbs and eyelids. Rather than mounting progressively over time, the body high sets in quickly. Mental effects arrive in the form of sensory enhancement — smokers may notice that external stimuli take on new dimensions and seem more interesting than they ordinarily might.
Visual and auditory distortions are commonly reported. In the right set and setting, this psychedelic tone can inspire creativity and introspection.
While King Kong doesn’t knock its users out with full-on couchlock, over time, it eases all tension held in the body. In high enough doses, however, King Kong can lead to intractable couchlock and sleep. Because of its sedative tendences, this bud is best suited to evening and nighttime use.
Its effects last longer than average, even for experienced cannabis users. King Kong can also have several uses for medical cannabis patients. Its deep and thorough physical relaxation is an efficient analgesic for:
Because it does not often lead to the kind of intense, recursive thinking patterns associated with paranoia, King Kong strain is a good choice for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
