Cue the Imperial Theme from Star Wars. The dense, frosty buds that grow from the indica-leaning Empire Kush smell like sweet pine and pungent skunk, a bouquet potent enough to translate to the palette.
Empire Kush works equally well for the head as it does the body. Many say they seek out this strain for its ability to dull chronic pain, reduce inflammation, and stimulate hunger. Those suffering from stress, agitation, or anxiety may find relief in this strain as well.
Dry mouth and dry eyes may be experienced by some consumers. Smaller doses may cause alertness; higher doses may induce couch-lock.
For growers, Empire Kush has a flowering time of anywhere between 62-70 days, a little longer than average for most commercial seeds. Its yields are medium to high, and it grows well through a sea of green operation.
