A Religious Experience
We have the folks at Mendocino Farms to thank for 3 Kings Feminized, which has been described on more than one occasion as the true ‘Holy Trinity’ of genetics. Whether this is the case is down to the user to decide, but there’s no disputing what 3 Kings Fem brings to the table.
If you’re ever struggling for inspiration and you need to get those creative juices flowing, this stuff is unbeatable. Immediately blasting both body and brain with a wave of motivated energy, 3 Kings is about getting things done and doing them right. At least, in the creative and artistic sense – her 30% Indica composition does make its presence known after a while.
Still, with a full 70% Sativa makeup, you can count on this hybrid to eradicate anything that may be on your mind at the time. Boredom, pessimism, anxiety, stress, depression – all immediately blasted into oblivion and replaced with a ‘can do’ attitude. All of which has made 3 Kings Feminized an absolute superstar in therapeutic cannabis circles, used for the treatment of a wide variety of psychological conditions.
Created by combining the genetics of three all-time classics - Diesel, OG Kush and Headband - 3 Kings Feminized was destined for fame from day one. You’d be forgiven for thinking that an average 17% THC potency would equate to a mild (or even mundane) high, but you’d also be way off the mark. Somehow, this stuff kicks like you wouldn’t believe and lingers around for hours on end.
Famed for her sweet and sour fragrance with plenty of sugary citrus, 3 Kings is also a comparatively easy strain to grow. Show this stuff even a moderate amount of TLC and you could be harvesting up to 600g of quality weed in no time at all.
Flavor and Fragrance of 3 Kings
The three most dominant terpenes in 3 Kings Feminized are caryophyllene, limonene and humulene. Caryophyllene is known for its spicy-peppery fragrance, limonene is bursting with juicy citrus and humulene brings a hoppy fragrance and flavor into the mix. The combination of which creates something quite special in this notable specimen.
Of course, with such diverse genetic ancestry, you wouldn’t expect anything less than a complex and distinct fragrance. The initial hit is one of sour citrus and somewhat heavy fuel, harking back to that Sour Diesel lineage. There’s also plenty of sweetness and pine-freshness, underpinned by freshly dug earth and a gentle wave of musk. The OG Kush ancestry of 3 Kings Fem is also evident in the hint of sandalwood you pick up on when the buds are burned.
The flavor profile more or less follows the delectable fragrance notes to the letter. Sweet, sour, earthy and musky, 3 Kings Feminized produces a rich, heavy and a deeply satisfying smoke. There is a long-lasting fuel-like aftertaste that borders on acrid, with plenty of peppery spice and a note of exotic hash.
These nugs are considered best enjoyed when smoked, though are worth trying with a low-temperature vaporizer for an entirely different experience.
Leaning heavily towards the Sativa side of the spectrum, 3 Kings Feminized is an excellent daytime smoke. Given her moderate THC content that varies from 15% or around 19%, she’s never going to hit you too hard and put you completely out of action. The effect is pretty much 100% cerebral at first, flooding the brain with a sense of optimism and inspired creativity. You’ll find yourself brainstorming and thinking creatively on a level you never thought possible, with all pessimism and negative thoughts having been obliterated.
This initial headrush can get a little on the ‘lively’ side, so proceed with caution if you’re using 3 Kings to get by at work.
Likewise, it’s only a matter of time until that Indica heritage creeps into the equation. Again, this isn’t the kind of strain that is going to leave you completely out of action. Instead, it’s more a case of gradually being eased into a sense of dreamy and floaty physical relaxation, sending warm and soothing tingles right through the extremities. You’ll still be able to move and function, but you’ll probably have less desire to do so.
Put the pieces together and you have a strain that’s simply fantastic for late in the day, or when you’re struggling to bring tricky tasks to completion. Hit 3 Kings Feminized at breakfast and you’ll be feeling lazy as can be by lunchtime. Hit it mid-afternoon and you’ll power through your workload, with the gentle body stone kicking in just as you’re heading home.
Medical Uses of 3 Kings Feminized
The therapeutic benefits of 3 Kings are linked not only to the strain’s moderate THC level and balanced genetics, but also a fantastic terpene composition. This stuff contains a relatively generous concentration of caryophyllene, humulene, limonene, pinene, linalool, myrcene, menthol and nerolidol – all of which come together to provide a synergistic effect. Or to put it another way, 3 Kings Feminized is far more than the sum of her component parts.
Immediately getting to grips with all types of psychological malaise, 3 Kings is fantastic for alleviating everyday stress, bouts of anxiety and feelings of mild depression. If you’re simply struggling to get motivated or having negative thoughts of any kind, these buds offer the perfect solution. The same also applies to concentration issues and difficulties focusing on mundane tasks – no issue with this stuff in your arsenal.
As the high progresses and evolves, the physically relaxing properties of 3 Kings begin to do their thing. Therapeutic tokers often turn to these buds for relief from arthritis, joint stiffness, headaches, migraines and more. 3 Kings is also pretty consistent where moderate yet controllable cases of the munchies are concerned, so she’s great for tackling bouts of nausea or poor appetite.
The risk of negative side effects with 3 Kings Feminized is relatively low, as the average THC content isn’t nearly high enough to send novice users over the edge.
Growing 3 Kings Feminized Seeds
3 Kings Feminized has a genetic composition that also makes her an enjoyable strain to grow. Give these beauties free rein and you’ll be looking at plants that top out at around six feet, making them suitable for most indoor and outdoor environments. She’s also an extremely forgiving strain in terms of humidity and temperature preferences, while demonstrating excellent resistance to common plant problems like mold and pest infestation.
The only thing you really need to keep your eye on is the weight of the branches and the buds, which may need some level of support as the plants reach maturity.
A 50% humidity level is ideal, alongside temperatures from around 20° C to say 26°C.
3 Kings Feminized has a flowering time of approximately 10 weeks, after which indoor yields can reach 600g per square meter – often up to 700g outdoors. If you’re planning a photoperiod grow outdoors, aim to harvest mid-October at the latest.
In short, 3 Kings Feminized single-handedly demonstrates how excessive quantities of THC aren’t the be all and end all. There’s a time and a place for enough THC to knock out a bull elephant, but there’s so much more to the enjoyment of good weed than potency alone.
This stuff can be pretty much anything you want it to be. Inspiring, motivating, uplifting, relaxing – the epitome of a versatile and enjoyable strain.
Not to mention, with the added bonus of a simple cultivation process from start to finish – even with no prior knowledge or experience whatsoever.
