Kyle Kushman is a 5-time High Times Cannabis Cup winner, Instructor at Oaksterdam University, and California-based cannabis consultant. Drawing from his experiences with growing, he has helped develop a revolutionary growing technique called Veganics. He is preparing to release a line of veganic nutrients as well.
Kushman has been cultivating organic cannabis for over 24 years. He was hired as a cultivation expert and staff journalist by HIGH TIMES after submitting a few photo essays. It was there that Kushman’s popularity began to rise. Nonetheless, he left the New York lifestyle to get back to his roots as a cultivator after a few short years.
Experimenting with various forms of organic growing techniques, Kushman stumbled upon a method called veganics – it only utilizes plant-based nutrients. Soon thereafter, he helped launch Buds & Roses Collective in Los Angeles. They have won numerous HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cups in the time since.
Kushman’s legend will likely live on through the quality cannabis genetics he has brought to the industry. His patented Strawberry Cough strain is highly sought after for its characteristic terpene profile. He is also credited with growing a batch of Ghost Train Haze #1 that tested at over 30% total cannabinoids.
