About this Indica Strain
The vintage flavored cannabis strain Master Kush is an indica that’s been popular in Dutch Coffee shops since the mid-90s. It’s known for its sweetly pungent earthy scent and taste that has woody undertones. When harvest-ready, its buds are covered in a thick layer of frosty trichomes and hairs of stunning shades: oranges, reds, and yellows.
Both parents are landrace strains from the Hindu Kush region: Hindu Kush and Skunk. Master Kush is a unique tetraploid strain, meaning it carries four times the number of haploid chromosomes than diploid cannabis strains (diploid is the norm).
Its THC level averages at 16% and can get as high as 20%. Its high has been popularized and is one of Snoop Dogg’s favorites. It’s described as strong but not overwhelming, creating both a blissful mindset that increases creativity and intellectual curiosity as well as a full-body relaxation numbing aches and pains. Reviewers have noted that despite its indica properties, it can sharpen sensory awareness and make hobbies (and for experienced consumers, social engagements) more enjoyable.
For novice consumers, this strain may cause dizziness or slight paranoia if too much is consumed.
Master Kush won first prize in the hydro segment of the 1994 Cannabis Cup. When it was first bred, it was called High Rise because it was created on one of Amsterdam’s towering residential blocks.
