StrainHunting is fun business and when you can do it in your own backyard, it’s even more fun. Oregon is a fantastic place right now, with legalization on the horizon now that we’ve passed Measure 91, many different endeavors in the Cannabis world are being executed and it’s hard to keep up with much of it.
We’d like to point out the good people and good genetics coming from AlphaKronik Genes. We’ll be doing a FULL Breeder Spotlight Video in the future on AlphaKronic Genes and their website but for now we’d like to give some attention to the Stephen Hawking Kush from the Great Minds Series.
We’re looking forward to collaborating with Alphakronik and their growers to try some extracted oil of this strain to experience the pain relieving qualities of this high CBD plant.
We have not had a lot of opportunity to try many Harlequin-based strains and Stephen Hawking Kush has two high CBD strains brought in to mix with the Sin City Kush.
Described as having a berry flavor and aroma, we’re really interested in getting out hands on a kush that finishes like cherries and berries and has a 5:1 CBD ratio!

Stephen Hawking Kush is the second release in Alphakronik Genes’ “Great Minds” series, named after famed physicist, Dr. Stephen Hawking. It is also the first offering of what has been called their CBD+ line, a collection of hybrids bred to enchance the Cannabidiol levels of the plant. Starting off with the rare clone only strain, Harlitsu, AG Seeds pollinated it with their tried and true stud, Sin City Kush to create what has come to be known as SHK. There are three specific phenotypes in this hybrid, one that is just like its mother, tall, stretchy, with heavier yields and higher CBD content, the second more of a hybrid between the two that has great colouration from a range of hues during the harvest window which also a 5:1 CBD level, and third the “Fathers’ Daughter”, which is a smaller, more pinetree shaped purple plant. SHK has a vibrant cherry and berry flavour, with a slight hint of mint on the palette. Extracts increase the mint/menthol flavour, often being described as “Cherry Ludens” with a berry finish. Stephen Hawking Kush has been known to aid in the treatment of muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, ADD, anxiety, muscular sclerosis, auto-immune disorders, nausea, and generalized pain symptoms. This plant likes to grow extra tall with strong branching and large fan leaves. The plant likes to be trained and topped constantly in veg, and prefers extra room for root growth during the first few weeks in the flower period. Also, top the day it goes to flower to increase yield by upwards of 20%.
