Now, let's explore all there is to know about this new strain. How did the name come about? How does she smell and taste? What effects can be expected? And how does she perform in the grow operation? The answers await you.


Larry Bird Kush: Why The Name?

Every now and then, you have a strain that is named after a famous person. The most prominent of such would be Jack Herer, which was named after the famous cannabis activist and author. But outstanding athletes get honoured with strain names as well, and such is the case with Larry Bird Kush. Larry Bird is a famous Boston Celtics basketball player. He is known for throwing almost impossible passes and making baskets in the last minute of the game. This way, he saved his team many times and therefore is a crucial part of their success. He is also called Mr. Dependable, which hints at the reliability of this strain.
