Coming Soon: Alien Purple Kush aka RK1

Something special is coming soon. You might remember her as RK1, our very first strain released in Illinois, AKA Alien Purple Kush.

She smells and tastes like Frosted Flakes or sweet sugar, and her effects are blissed out, happy, and relaxed at the same time. We pulled this one out of the archives and are excited to showcase this cultivar once again.

APK is nicely frosted in trichomes and has a sweet, sugary aroma.

Featured in the High Times February 2017 centerfold, we were not allowed to use the name due to advertising regulations. So, we listed the lineage instead:

[Super Space Queen x Las Vegas Purple Kush] x [Chemdog x Alien Technology]

Whatever you call her; Revolution Kush One, RK1, or APK, she is a fantastic smoke. If you’re a fan of classic strains like pre-98 Bubba and The White, you will likely enjoy the experience.

Alien Purple Kush will be available at Enlightened, Revolution and Rise dispensaries 2/16/2024. First 50 customers will receive an exclusive limited-time gift with purchase.

General Cannabis FAQ

Cannabis, often referred to as marijuana, is a plant that has been used for thousands of years for various purposes, including medicine, textiles, and recreation. The plant contains compounds known as cannabinoids, with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) being the most well-known. THC is primarily responsible for the plant’s psychoactive effects, while CBD is recognized for its potential therapeutic benefits without causing a “high.”

Many countries and U.S. states have decriminalized or legalized the use of marijuana for medical use, recreational, or both. The legal status changes frequently as legislation evolves.

The effects of cannabis vary widely depending on the strain, dosage, method of consumption, an individual’s endocannabinoid system, and more.

Some commonly reported effects include:

Psychoactive Effects: Euphoria, mood elevation, cerebral stimulation, stress relief, calming effects, and relaxation.

Physical Effects: Pain relief, body buzz, anti-inflammation, anti-nausea, energy boost or sedation, and appetite stimulation

*Medical Benefits: Cannabis is believed to have a range of therapeutic effects and alleviation of symptoms related to conditions like epilepsy, PTSD, and more.

*Marijuana is not approved by the FDA to treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

The primary difference lies in their intended use:

Medical Cannabis: Used as a treatment and alleviation of symptoms for specific health conditions. Medical strains might be cultivated and processed to have higher CBD content or other therapeutic compounds. Medical cannabis requires a physician who usually prescribes or recommends it as a treatment option.

Recreational Cannabis: Used without a medical justification but for personal enjoyment and fulfillment.

The process varies from state to state but typically involves the following steps:

Doctor’s Recommendation: Schedule an appointment with a physician who is authorized to recommend medical marijuana. Discuss your health conditions and reasons for seeking cannabis as a treatment.

Application: Once you have a doctor’s recommendation, you’ll usually need to apply for a medical marijuana card through a designated state or country agency.

Proof & Identification: Provide necessary identification and proof of residency as required by your jurisdiction.

Fee Payment: Most jurisdictions require a fee for the application and issuance of a medical marijuana card.

Card Issuance: Once approved, you will receive your medical marijuana card, allowing you to purchase cannabis at designated medical dispensaries.
