Mickey Kush is made by Avitas Agriculture, and I picked up a gram at Herbal Nation (in Bothell, WA) for $34.99.
Avitas Agriculture, Inc. is a producer based in Arlington, WA. Asides from having outstanding product, Avitas has a great website. While browsing the site, I read up on Avitas’ core values: Customers, Quality, Community, Environment, Genetics, & Cultivation. They also list the current cannabis strains available, and what stores are carrying Avitas products. It is impressive to see such a dedicated producer with a sleek website; it’s clear to see why Avitas is confident in their product, and their brand.
The packaging for Mickey Kush (and all Avitas products) is elegant, and concisely includes everything you could want on a package of great herbs. Front side, the sticker includes percentages for indica & sativa, and also includes a strain description:
“Extremely potent, punchy and intense cerebral effects. Not for the novice smoker!”
Having a description for every marijuana strain requires a separate sticker for every strain. Regardless of the fact that they have to print a sticker detailing testing results and tracking information, Avitas sets a great example by having the individual strain description front and center in the midst of every well designed sticker.

Indica – 25% / Sativa – 75%
THC Total % – 15.74
CBD Total % – 0.04

Mickey Kush smells earthy – it’s a subtle yet deep aroma. There is a hint of fruit towards the end, and overall the scent is not too pungent (i.e. it doesn’t filter through the room upon simply opening the package).
This specific batch of Mickey Kush is nicely dried, but could have used a little more trimming on the leaf end. All leaves aside – the cure on the bud itself is great, and clearly professional.
I sampled Mickey Kush out of a pipe, and it’s truly the type of herb that tastes how it smells; deep earthiness carries over into a smoked chocolatey flavor, with a lingering hint of lemon-ish fruit. A truly great taste.
The onset is quick, and just as the package says, it delivers an intense cerebral head high. It’s easy to get sucked into any activity while smoking with Mickey Kush. Time passes by quickly, and it’s a great “doing stuff” high.
Burnout and fatigue are minimal, so I’d have to declare that smoking with Mickey Kush is a fantastic experience . I’m very pleased with Avitas’ product, and next week’s review will be of Plushberry (another one of their strains).
