The indica-dominant hybrid Mango Kush is well-known for its strong flavor and aroma mimicking tropical fruits and mangos with a skunky undertone. Sometimes reviewers can note a bit of a piney aftertaste as well. Mango Kush buds are distinct in appearance as they’ll usually be dense and covered with vivid orange pistils.
The THC content of Mango Kush averages at around 11%, which is one of the reasons why it tends to be popular with novice consumers. Reviewers have stated its high tends to create a body buzz as its indica properties emerge, and the sativa side is noticeable when conversations become more fun and the giggles arise. Some have reported that Mango Kush also increases appetite, so it’s possible that this might be a great strain for various social occasions.
However, Mango Kush can sometimes lead to sedation according to a few reviewers, so keep this in mind if planning to go out.
Both indoor and outdoor growers enjoy cultivating mango Kush, with its highest yields reaped when temperatures remain between 70-80 degrees and its bottom branches are pruned to increase air circulation. Its height usually never reaches over five feet.
