Deep dives, attention to detail, and geeking out about weed are kind of our thing, so we’ll be spotlighting one special strain on our blog every month. This November, we would like to introduce you to Tenzin Kush. Tenzin Kush is a genetically unique and extremely sought after indica dominant strain, with a rich terpene profile and an amazing high. Read on for everything you need to know about this fantastic strain!
Let’s start with lineage. Tenzin Kush comes from some strong and skunky chem roots that give it a creeping potency and unique profile. Descended from Sour OG and 78 Old School Affie, Tenzin Kush has ancestors all over the world, from California to New York to Hawaii to Colombia to Thailand to Pakistan. This adds a uniquely and thoroughly balanced nature that puts Tenzin Kush in a league of its own.
If you’re unfamiliar, parent Sour OG (originally known as 818 Headband) is a balanced 60/40 sativa leaning strain with a pungency and potency inherited from its parents, (Tenzin’s Grandparents) Sour Diesel and OG Kush. This strain has a funky, gassy aroma with notes of sour citrus, pine, and kerosene. Sour OG balances both the cerebral and sedative properties of its predecessors, beginning with an energetic head high that slowly gives way to a deeply relaxing body stone. This generous parent passed down its uplifting, euphoric effects as well as its classic Kush tendency to release tension in the body to baby Tenzin.
Parent number two is 78 Old School Affie. This is a diverse strain, believed to be a cross between Lemon Thai, Pakistani Landrace, and Colombian Gold. Its transatlantic genetics can create a variety of effects which may depend on individual people’s body chemistry. Above all, 78 Old School Affie is an indica, and a heavy one. Its typical effects are said to be a lucid calm focus, total body relaxation, and a chatty curiosity for some. It soothes aches and pains, anxiety and insomnia, but won’t totally couch lock you when used in moderation. 78 Old School Affie passed down its dreamy, tingly high to baby Tenzin, balancing out Sour OG’s social and energetic head high while maintaining the euphoric nature of both.
Tenzin Kush itself is a strong and aromatic indica with frosty buds that alternate between purple and green. It is extremely sought after for its rich terpene profile and dreamy, uplifting high. It has a gassy aroma and flavor notes of florals and fuel that fade into a cooling grape menthol for a refreshing finish. Naturally, as an indica, Tenzin plunges you into a gradual but deep relaxation, body and mind. However, it’s not quite as sleepy as it sounds. Tenzin is a happy, euphoric, and dreamy high that keeps you lifted and awake as the world falls into soft focus all around you.
