About this Hybrid Strain
King Louis XIII was a well-respected and powerful French king from the 1600s giving the inspiration for the name of this powerful cannabis strain. This strain is a phenotype of OG Kush that was created by cross breeding it with LA Confidential. It’s a heavy indica with THC testing around 24% on average but has even tested up to 28%!
The thick and sticky layer of resinous trichomes gives the flower a lime-green appearance. In not so dense areas of trichome crystals, one can see the original forest-green leaves. A thick net of orange pistils encases the nuggets making up for at least half of the color. Breaking these sticky buds up releases the gassy and citrus fumes, complimenting the scent of pine and skunk in the air. The blending of these flavors makes smoking Louis XIII quite a treat.
Louis XIII is known to trigger deep feelings of relaxation that start up in the head. Pressure and tension behind the eyes and in the temples become released. This release of tension carries over to emotions as stress and worry dissolve. This relaxing effect works its way out of the mind and through the muscles of the body. As the cerebral effect wears off, the muscles of the body become heavier. The heavy muscles and calm mind are now in a peaceful state. Any feelings of intestinal discomfort subside, and appetite is stimulated. Medical users suffering from insomnia are reporting that Louis XIII helps promote a deep and restful sleep. Users prone to stress, anxiety, and mood disorders may benefit from Louis XIII, although the strength of this strain may be too much for inexperienced users.
Growing Louis XIII is not the easiest, especially outdoors. It requires a sunny and dry climate, making it much easier to grow indoors. Daytime temperature needs to stay at about 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit for optimum growth. It responds well to hydroponics and requires a substantial amount of food and light. This strain grows relatively fast and can fully flower in 8 weeks. Louis XIII is an excellent yielder and is capable of giving 1.5 pounds of flower per plant indoors, and 2 pounds of flower per plant outdoors!
