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 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.
These are vigorous, strong-rooted, and hardy plants developed in Amsterdam to grow indoors in apartments. They are a cross of Hindu Kush and Skunk. They are of medium height, tightly formed with spiked leaves and ball-shaped buds. The Master Kush plant grows well in just about any environment that is at least temperate, making this a popular plant world-wide. The buds form tightly in dense balls, but have little smell while growing.
The smoke is thick and juicy with a nice aroma that hints at citrus. The buzz is short and simple and most say relaxing, with low THC levels overall. The Master Kush strain is most often prescribed for nausea and occasionally for light migraines.
THE HISTORY OF MASTER KUSH STRAIN
The Master Kush strain comes from a long line of cannabis plants that grew in the wild, throughout the mountain range between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Stemming from two landrace strains, Master Kush was originally named High Rise, after the building it was bred in. When the Dutch White Label Seed Company bred High Rise, they renamed it Master Kush.
This is the name under which the strain became one of the most popular strains around. Some strains have jumped on the popularity of this strain and even go under the same name. The true Master Kush though, comes only from its Hindu Kush and Skunk #1 lineage.
Master Kush has proved itself as a true master time and time again. Over the years, the strain has won The Cannabis Cup twice. Once in 1992 and again in 1993. It’s also rumored to be the preferred choice of Snoop Dog. It’s even the main ingredient in Snoop Dog’s own marijuana line.
THE EFFECTS AND CHARACTERISTICS
Simply looking at a Master Kush is exciting for any marijuana enthusiast. This plant grows deep green leaves with short, compact stems. The buds have intertwining orange pistils, that are covered with sticky white trichomes. The buds are also emit a musty scent that also carries notes of citrus.
The musty scent follows through to the deep flavor Master Kush brings. It’s earthy, woody, pungent, but pleasantly so. The combination of the hints of pine and subtle oak in the flavor have also led to some describing the taste of Master Kush as vintage.
With a THC content that’s typically between 20 and 24 percent, Master Kush brings with it a nice potent high every single time. This makes it ideal for medicinal use, or those that simply need to unwind after a long, hard day.
After just a few draws from a joint or vaporizer, Master Kush makes people feel completely relaxed. This makes it great for anyone that needs to treat their anxiety, or wants to forget about their worries for a while. It’s these effects that also make this strain ideal for treating chronic pain, nausea, and depression. Master Kush will not make you completely numb though, as some other Indicas are prone to do.
