The only thing vanilla about this strain is its lavendar-infused vanilla flavor. Vanilla Kush from Amsterdam-based Barney’s Farm took 2nd place overall at the 2009 High Times Cannabis Cup. Genetics stem from Kashmir and Afghan strains with a resulting THC content above 20%. Plants flower within two months and flowers are large and green with orange highlights. Beginners should be mindful as this is a potent and powerful Kush.
