Master Kush Strain Genetics
Master Kush marijuana seeds are one of Dutch Passion’s oldest and most appreciated varieties. Bravely brought back to Amsterdam from the Hindu Kush mountain region of Afghanistan and now the worthy recipient of multiple cannabis cups, the strain’s elite genetics provide growers with the stable, rugged growth qualities that are common to landrace cultivars.
Due to its unique origins, Master Kush lineage is tough to determine, but the strain’s near-pure indica effects and earth citrus flavours speak for themselves. Available from MGS in a feminized variety, now this fast-flowering king of the kush family can be grown at home with ease by gardeners of all abilities.
Master Kush Strain Terpene Profile
Master Kush flavour will be familiar to those accustomed to the taste of classic cultivars like Afghan Kush and its descendants. A herby, citrus flavour with a hint of incense, strong skunk accents and an aftertaste that’s reminiscent of charas hash is what consumers can expect, but growers may notice a milder odour than in similar strains, which can be ideal if seeking discretion.
As with most Afghani cannabis strains, Master Kush dominant terpene is caryophyllene – a pungent organic compound that’s also found in rosemary and black pepper. Fruity terpenes like limonene and myrcene terpenes also help to define its discernable flavour, along with many of the medical and recreational effects that helped secure its cup-winning status.
Master Kush Strain Effects
As a nearly pure indica strain, one might expect Master Kush effects to be exclusively physical. However, this cultivar offers a keen balance of bodily relaxation and sativa-style effects, without the mind-numbing effects that often accompany landrace strains. Users can expect a sharpened sense of sensory awareness, feelings of euphoric bliss, and a ravenous appetite a short while after consuming, with its effects slowly edging towards the sedative side if consumed in excess.
Master Kush THC level is estimated at around 18%, so while not a knockout strain, it does have a powerful impact that may be too much for some. With celebrity fans such as Snoop Dogg, you won’t need a lot of this high THC, low CBD kush cultivar to feel the full force of its effect.
Master Kush strain Medical Benefits
Master Kush medical benefits are world-renowned, especially when it comes to treating stress and anxiety. Ideal for nighttime relaxation, getting a good night’s sleep, or simply shutting down those negative thought patterns, its multipurpose recreational effects have plenty of curative properties.
Master Kush medical seeds can also help with eating disorders and appetite. The strain’s limonene and beta-caryophyllene terpenes stimulate hormones that increase appetite and food intake, promoting strong food cravings that can help with the side effects of chemotherapy or conditions like anorexia.
How to Grow Master Kush Strain
Growing Master Kush feminized seeds is a simple affair as this is a compact and forgiving cannabis variety that benefits greatly from its hardy landrace genetics. As its smell is less intense than other Kush cultivars, requiring little to no filtration, this coffeeshop favourite makes an excellent choice for indoor growth and SOG or SCROG set-ups. Outdoor growers are also in luck as these female plants thrive well in a dry Mediterranean climate but can be susceptible to mould in humid conditions due to the sheer size and density of the bud growth.
Producing squat, indica-typical plants with weighty, pale-green buds that are covered in white and orange trichomes, these cannabis seeds are great for beginners or long time growers alike. This cultivar also clones easily, which is great for those wanting to share the wealth with friends. Cannabis cultivators can expect high yields of high-quality crop every time and, as Master Kush flowering time is only eight weeks from germination, repeated growth cycles in a single season are more than possible.
