Master Kush is a popular indica cross 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 Master Kush 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.
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.
