It is quite possibly one of the most famed strains out there, having received shoutouts from no other than Snoop Dogg, but also more formal accolades as the winner of two Cannabis Cup awards.
Master Kush is a 90% indica strain, that is said to be the result of a mix of two lush landrace strains from the renowned Hindu Kush region. While some claim that it is a fusion of Hindu Kush and Skunk #1, one thing is for sure – this strain was proudly created in the middle of urban Amsterdam.
This power-indica is known for its ability to slow and calm down your body, without making it feel like your brain is frozen up. Master Kush is the master at balancing the best of highs to create a smooth and enjoyable full-body high, without the mental heaviness.
