What do you think of its lineage and achievements? Impressive, huh?
That's just for starters! Read on to find out more.
The History of Creation, and Appearance
Aside from its badass name, this hybrid has a badass backstory dating back to 1998, Los Angeles, California. The creation of this super potent strain involved rapper Bad Azz of the Dogg Pound Gangsta Crips rap band, which once included well-known ganja aficionado – Snoop Dogg. While the detailed history of the strain remains unknown, the entire D.P.G.C. crew contributed to the creation of a new Kush hybrid combining traditional California OG characteristics, high yields, and outstanding flavor.
When it comes to appearance, Bad Azz Kush is an absolute stunner. Its buds are dense and covered in a thick layer of sticky trichomes, giving them a frosty, almost icy look. The leaves are a deep green with hints of purple, a visual nod to the strain's Urkel heritage. Bad Azz Kush is also notable for its 1.5-2 meters compact indica structure, with most buds forming at the top of the branches with short to medium internodes.
Its outdoor behavior is impeccable. Bad Azz Kush endures everything thrown at it: the plant is resistant to pests, enviably tolerant of temperature fluctuations, and yet loves to feel like home, in California, in a dry and moderately humid climate. Provide it with this opportunity and it will truly reward you. When it comes to feeding, Bad Azz Kush is not demanding, however, even a small amount of nutrients will produce spectacular results.
So ensure that Bad Azz Kush receives 18 hours of light during the first three weeks, using LED panels with a predominance of blue light. Since the bush has a dense, space-consuming structure, it is important to keep a close eye on airflow and regulate ventilation in the grow room to prevent the development of mold and mildew. During the flowering period, the plant can spread out considerably (up to 120-170 cm), requiring space to form large colas. If you have this space, enjoy growing using stakes for the branches, which become heavy from the weight of the buds after the sixth week of flowering. If you do not have enough space, we recommend that you limit its ambitions by topping (FIM) at an early stage of vegetation, followed by pruning or using SOG/SCROG techniques as the plant gains vegetative mass.
For those looking to grow Bad Azz Kush indoors, the use of proper pots and adequate ventilation is the key to a healthy and productive crop. LED lights are ideal for providing the right spectrum of light for this strain, but any quality grow lights will do the trick. When it comes to watering, it's best to wait until the soil is completely dry before giving your plants a thorough moistening. Doing so will prevent overwatering and the possibility of mold growth. When grown properly indoors, Bad Azz Kush can produce impressive yields, with some reports of up to 700 grams per square meter following approximately 8 weeks of flowering.
Outdoor growers will want to make sure their plants are protected from pests and harsh weather conditions. With proper care, outdoor growers can expect to harvest up to 800-1000 grams per plant in the second half of September.
Terpene Profile, Flavor, and Aroma
To begin with, Bad Azz Kush buds smell amazing from the very beginning of the flowering stage. Dried and cured flowers have a sweet aroma of spicy herbs and cedar. Introduce them to fire, and your senses will explode with a hashish and berry flavor with a fruity note accented by a harmony of spice, fuel, and earthy undertones producing a stunning knockout effect. The main terpene profile includes myrcene, limonene, caryophyllene, humulene.

The effects of Bad Azz Kush have a fast-paced rush that overwhelms your senses in just a few minutes and almost instantly puts you in an altered state of consciousness. As your mind soars and dissolves into infinite bliss, your body sinks into a soft, meditative relaxation.
