Both parents of Master Kush are landrace strains from the Hindu Kush section: Hindu Kush and Skunk. Master Kush is a unique tetraploid strain, indicating it carries four times the amount of haploid chromosomes than diploid weed strains (diploid is the norm).
Appearance & Aroma
It’s recognized for its sweetly pungent earthy odour and flavour that has woody undertones. When harvest-ready, its flowers are covered in a thick layer of crystal trichomes and hairs of stunning tones: ambers, reds, and yellows.
Effects & Benefits
Its THC level averages at 20% and is one of Snoop Dogg’s favourites. It’s described as intense but not overwhelming, producing both a blissful mindset that improves creativity and philosophical ideas as well as a full-body relaxation, easing pains and aches. Reviewers have remarked that despite its Indica characteristics, it can intensify sensory awareness and make hobbies (and for seasoned consumers, social engagements) more pleasant. The strain has acquired several awards over the years. It won The Cannabis Cup, known as the Superbowl of the pot, twice in 1992 and again in 1993.
Adverse effects may involve the usual dry eyes and mouth when the Master Kush flowers are smoked. Some users also encounter dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety with larger doses or when Master Kush is consumed as an edible.
This strain’s primary use is for relieving anxiety and stress. The solid and Indica-based effects are perfect for unwinding in the evening. Master Kush is highly effective in the treatment of insomnia. Its body-numbing high can help control chronic pain. The substantial, stereotypical ‘munchies’ produced by this strain may also help stimulate appetite for patients suffering from eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia.
