Strain: Master Kush
Genetics: Hindu Kush x Skunk
In the vast spectrum of modern cannabis genetics, the word Kush is the most ubiquitous by far. Try as you might, you’ll be unlikely to find a dispensary menu anywhere in the world that doesn’t include one or more Kush selections. Common as it may seem, however, not all Kushes are created equal and speaking technically, most Kushes aren’t actually Kush at all. Patients seeking the real thing will find what they’re looking for in the unmatched classic, Master Kush.
Named for its origins in the Hindu Kush Mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the history of these important genetics predates the modern Kush craze by millennia. Prized by ancient hash makers, the historic Hindu Kush plant produces powerful and heavily resinous flowers. Its stout structure and short growth cycle were keys to survival in a harsh climate, but also lend themselves to the needs of modern cultivators in tightly controlled indoor conditions.
A cross of historic Hindu Kush and Skunk genetics, Master Kush is a definitive indica often sought by patients experiencing severe pain. Its robust, full-bodied effects are known for providing physical symptom relief coupled with deep relaxation. Despite its strength, the mental effect can be clear and comfortable, making Master popular with patients suffering from stress and anxiety. As with any superior indica, Master Kush’s satisfying effects typically transition into a sedative state ideal for sleep.
The flowers themselves exhibit dark green and sometimes purple hues, brightened on the surface by a dense reflective trichome coating distributed throughout its wide sugar leaves. The result is a delightful contrast of light and dark with a distinctive glow that almost seems to match its musky aroma. The flavor is rich with hints of chocolate, coffee, and skunk that serve to usher in its pleasantly sedative effects.
This magnificent and uniquely medicinal strain is a descendant of the first indica genetics grown anywhere on the globe. It also remains a first choice for many patients with the greatest need for symptom relief, while representing the historic origins of the planet’s finest cannabis.
