Odor and Flavors
Of the three parent strains, Sour Diesel has the most influence on the Three Kings with regards to its aroma.

The most sought-after effects from its parents are packed in this tiny glistening bud. Thus, it is the cannabis royalty for recreational users.
With some 70% of the strain leaning towards Sativa, its effects are mostly cerebral. When smoked, a high-powered euphoric buzz comes surging into the mind.

The smaller Indica side of Three Kings is not to be underestimated too. While less dominant, it is still powerful enough to put people at ease. At up to 24% THC, it is easy for the cerebral effects to become overwhelming. But the Indica traits of the strain blends in nicely and prevents the mental high from going overboard.
As some people say, this is Headband, Sour Diesel, and OG Kush in one. Three Kings is not just tagged as royalty because of its lineage. It is also because it makes users feel like royalty.
