We love Kush strains and 18Twelve has been on our radar the last month because of their 8 Ball Kush.
18Twelve is a west coast grower with a purpose-built indoor facility. Their website claims that every plant is flushed for two weeks to ensure no residual nutrients are present. Plus they cure for a minimum of two weeks, ensuring optimal flavour, potency and a terpene-rich experience.
8 Ball Kush has 2 dominant terpenes that give the strain it’s earthy and musky profile with spicy and citrusy accents. In case you’re wondering… those terpenes are caryophyllene (found in black pepper) and limonene (found in citrus rinds)
So how does it compare with something like DOJA’s Sour Kush?
Check our review, rating and photos below.
The product arrived in an industry standard white plastic container. When we popped off the lid we were instantly met with a strong musky, earthy aroma with a small cirtus undertone. The smell was really fresh and you could tell without even looking at the product that was going to be good.
Extremely impressive! 4 large spongy top buds, very well trimmed, beautiful shades of green and smattering of red hairs that “pop” throughout. Can’t overlook the light frosting of trichomes – its the only thing we want to see more of on these buds… if that’s possible. However the careful attention they paid to trimming the plants is noticeable. This might be one of the nicest looking in terms of bud presentation, not a single piece of shake.
8 Ball Kush brings what you expect. Its smell being a reflection of what’ll you’ll enjoy when lighting this bud up. A strong earthy herbal taste ending on a slight citrus note. This ones tastes as good as it smells and looks.
Listed with 25.3% THC content this product is just plain great. We assume the name must come from how you feel afterwards – it delivers a very strong buzz that’s glassy-eyed inducing combined with a strong feeling of muscular lethargy. 8 Ball Kush from the team at 18Twelve is a must try and one of the overall better indica strains we’ve seen so far.
