Master Kush is a popular indica cross created out of two landrace strains from different parts of the Hindu Kush region. Master Kush is bred by the Dutch White Label Seed Company, located in Amsterdam. During maturation the plant produces a subtle earthy, citrus smell with a hint of incense, which is often described as a vintage flavor. The taste of Master Kush is reminiscent of the famous hard-rubbed charas hash. This strain holds a superb balance of full-body relaxation without the mind-numbing effect that many indica strains produce. Instead, Master Kush offers a sharpened sensory awareness that can bring out the best of any activity.
Master Kush is a potent Indica that is great for medical cannabis patients. Featuring THC levels of 20% and up, this strain may be a little strong for beginners. Marijuana enthusiasts looking to explore the Kush family will be intrigued by the combo of head and body buzzes offered by this strain, most famously from Broken Coast Cannabis.
Master Kush Experience
Not to be confused with Master Kush Ultra (MK Ultra) this strain is an interesting one for breeders. It’s thought to be a tetraploid strain, which means that Master Kush has four sets of chromosomes rather than two. It is unclear whether or not this has an effect on cannabinoid content, but it may possibly result in a longer vegetative cycle and larger flowers. However, more research on tetraploid plants is sorely needed.
As an Indica, this strain produces strong, heavy-bodied sensations. It is great when you need a little extra help falling asleep. If you’re looking to avoid the munchies, however, Master Kush probably isn’t for you. You’ll be wandering into the kitchen after a few puffs of this powerful strain.

Marijuana fans, including Snoop Dogg himself, enjoy the earthy, classic kush flavor with hints of citrus. Marijuana consumers will love the bright green shock of this strain’s buds, which are full of tangled, almost brown, pistils. A nice dusting of trichomes completes a bud that marijuana fans will want to show off and share.
