Master Kush, originally known as High Rise, is a cross between Hindu Kush and Skunk. It’s buds look great and are bright green, covered in trichomes, orange, red and brown hairs. Master Kush is a vintage flavored indica cannabis strain that’s been popular in Dutch Coffee shops since the mid-90s. It’s known for its sweetly pungent earthy scent and taste that has woody undertones. When harvest-ready, its buds are covered in a thick layer of frosty trichomes and hairs of stunning shades: oranges, reds, and yellows.
Both parents are landrace strains from the Hindu Kush region: Hindu Kush and Skunk. Master Kush strain is a unique tetraploid strain, meaning it carries four times the number of haploid chromosomes than diploid cannabis strains (diploid is the norm).
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.
Master Kush is definitely one of the best relaxing marijuana strains after a hard days work or to unwind in the evenings with just a couple of hits.
