Delta 8 Mango Kush: Lineage & History
While breeders agree that Mango Kush isn’t a very new strain, there isn’t much information on when it was first created or where it came from. What we do know is that Mango Kush was originally bred from Mango, an Indica-dominant strain, and Hindu Kush, a pure Indica strain.
Did you know that cannabis is typically categorized into strain types? That’s right! There are three main types: Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid strains.
Let’s break down what makes each of these types so unique!
- Indica: Known to promote calm feelings, Indica strains will produce soothing sensations throughout your body. These strains are great for use before bedtime or to help you unwind at the end of a long day.
- Sativa: These strains are much more “heady” and are known to give consumers an energizing boost. This makes Sativas great for daytime consumption. They also boost your creativity levels and help you knock out your daily task list.
- Hybrid: These cannabis strains are awesome because they offer the best of both Indicas and Sativas! While some Hybrid strains are 50/50, most are either Indica- or Sativa-dominant.
The Mango Kush strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid strain. It generally contains about 65% Indica and 35% Sativa. This means you’ll experience mostly Indica’s relaxing effects balanced by a helping of Sativa’s stimulating benefits.
Smell and Flavor
Unsurprisingly, Mango Kush boasts a distinct kush flavor. It’s earthy and offers tropical banana and mango notes, with a piney flavor on each exhale. With such vibrant and fruity flavor, you’ll be surprised that you’re not snacking on actual fruit with each puff!
Delta 8 Mango Kush Terpenes
You may be wondering — how does Mango Kush taste and smell so bright and delicious? The answer is terpenes! These are natural plant compounds whose main function is to attract pollinators to their plants to effectively spread their pollen and germinate. Aside from helping plant life expand and flourish, terpenes also smell really good! They’re the reason why plants have such distinct aromas.
Mango Kush has an expansive terpene profile, including terpenes like:

Mango Kush Delta 8 THC has a strong cannabinoid profile! Like all hemp flower, it’s full spectrum, meaning it contains all of the cannabinoids naturally found in hemp.
Here are some of the many cannabinoids you’ll find in Mango Kush Delta 8:
- Delta 8 THC (~14%)
- CBD (~10-24%)
- CBDA (~7%)
- CBDV (~1-2%)
- Delta 9 THC (0.3% or less)
- CBGA, the precursor to CBG (~0.2%)
- And many others!
Bear in mind that as long as you’re buying hemp-derived Mango Kush Delta 8 flower, it will contain less than or equal to the federally legal limit of 0.3% THC (Delta 9 THC). This low amount of THC will not make you inebriated like the high THC strains associated with marijuana.

Mango Kush Delta 8 Products
Like most hemp flower strains, you can find Mango Kush Delta 8 in various products. When shopping for M.K., be on the lookout for:
- Flower: An oldie, but goodie! Sometimes you just can’t beat classic hemp flower. Grind up a bud and make joints or pack a pipe or bong!
- Pre-rolls: Love flower, but short on time? Pre-rolls are the solution you’ve been looking for! These are pre-packed, portable, and will give you more time to sit back and enjoy your flower.
- Vapes: If you’re looking to step away from smoking, vaping is a great alternative! You can find disposable pre-filled vape pens, reusable pens, and vape cartridges. You can also use a dry herb vape to enjoy Mango Kush Delta 8 THC flower.
Mango Kush Delta 8 is best enjoyed in the evening or at night. Its effects can last from three to four hours if you smoke or vape it, so be sure to use it when you have free time to relax. You may find that it’s helpful to use M.K. before bedtime, as its Indica properties can promote better sleep cycles.
If you’re new to Delta 8 THC, we recommend starting with a low dose (1-2 puffs) and waiting at least 30 minutes before consuming more. This will help gauge how your body responds to the cannabinoid and prevent unwanted side effects.
Tip: If you need to take a drug test for any reason, the consumption of Delta 8 before testing may result in a false positive. For this reason, we highly suggest abstaining from any kind of THC products if you plan on taking any drug tests.
But Is It Federally Legal?
Yes, as mentioned above, Mango Kush Delta 8 THC is federally legal! Flower strains are legal so long as they’re derived from hemp and not marijuana. According to the 2018 Farm Bill (also known as the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018), which made hemp and hemp-derived products federally legal, they must also contain 0.3% or less Delta 8 THC on a dry weight basis.
Understand that sometimes, local or state law might conflict with federal law. It’s always good to research your state’s rules and regulations before purchasing any hemp products.
