Master Kush, also known as “High Rise,” “Grandmaster Kush,” and “Purple SoCal Master Kush” is a popular indica marijuana strain crossed from two landrace strains from different parts of the Hindu Kush region by the Dutch White Label Seed Company in Amsterdam. The plant produces a subtle earthy, citrus smell with a hint of incense, which is often described as a vintage flavor.
The taste of this flavor is reminiscent of the famous hard-rubbed charas hash. This strain holds a superb balance of full-body relaxation without mind-numbing effects. Instead, Master Kush offers a sharpened sensory awareness that can bring out the best of any activity.
Indica Dominant Hybrid – 90% Indica / 10% Sativa
THC: 20% – 24%, CBD: 1%, CBN: 1%
This potent indica hybrid, with a sativa/indica ratio of 10:90, can reach THC levels of up to 20%, which makes it one of the stronger medical strains around. Master Kush is a crossbreed of an original Hindu Kush strain and a pure skunk strain, though the exact genetics are unclear. These are among the strongest plants in the world.
And Master Kush is one of the best-known strains in the world, winner of two Cannabis Cup awards, and a personal favorite of Snoop Dogg. It was designed in the Netherlands and remains popular there, while it sells especially well on the West Coast of the United States. It has a pungent but sweet earthy flavor and a light citrus smell that can be hard to detect.
The dominant feeling while high is one of total relaxation, along with euphoria and sleepiness, all products of the strain’s genetic heritage. This makes it a good treatment for sleeplessness. Other conditions that benefit from Master Kush include anxiety, mental health problems, and migraines. Negative effects are limited, though dry mouth is possible as always.
