Master Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid cannabis. Also knowv as "High Rise", "Purple SoCal Master Kush" or "Grandmaster Kush". White Label Seed bred this strain in Amsterdam. Hindu Kush, which is a legendary cannabis plant with a rich history, was the basis for the creation of this strain. This bud is popular in any country where marijuana is legal.

Master Kush strain contains Bisabolol (as the main terpene), Camphene, Terpineol, Linalool, and Myrcene. The smell is dominated by pepper, but after that, a citrus aroma and notes of herbs appear.

Properties of Grandmaster Kush

THC levels range from 18 to 22%, which makes this cannabis quite potent. Grandmaster Kush strain is a good sleep aid. It also makes your body feel tingling, along with sedation. This is why medicine often uses this strain to help relieve symptoms of conditions such as muscular dystrophy, glaucoma, anxiety, migraines or ADHD. However, you should be very careful when using Master Kush, as it has several side effects, such as nausea, paranoia, and increased sensitivity. Therefore, this strain is not suitable for beginners and people with low tolerance.

Master Kush Strain Grow Info

Master Kush Strain Cannabinoids

THC 19.8 - 21.6% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness.

CBD 0.57 - 0.77% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.2 - 0.89% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.19 - 1.3% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component.

CBN 0.03 - 0.1% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.34 - 1.14% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

quite a great smell with smooth pulls. Within five minutes the high starts to kick in. it is quite a relaxing strain and leaves you giggly. The come down is quiet slow though, so I would recommend it for when listening to music or hiking.

Usually, I prefer smoking Sativas during the day so I can remain productive, but this Indica is something else. You can smoke it and it wont knock your ass down. It has a mellow high and amazing body buzz that will chill you out without knocking you out immediately. You can still get to do some work.

I think this is a moderate strain. It is neither good nor bad. It made me talkative, creative and a bit silly. However, I didn’t experience any euphoric or happy feeling and nothing changed about my every day stress and anxiety.

Write your reply

The flavor is similar to that of OG strains. Master Kush has a nice head high; you don’t feel overwhelmed at all rather you are happy and peaceful. This is a great choice for anyone who wants to chill. I highly recommend.
