      Master Kush Strain Information

      First and foremost, Master Kush is not for newbs. But if you’ve worked hard to build a masterful tolerance, this strain (also known as High Rise and Grandmaster Kush) will likely blow you away.

      As a 90/10 indica-sativa hybrid with an average THC concentration of 20%-24%, Master Kush doesn’t give itself away as a heavy hitter on paper. But you need only enjoy a few tokes to understand why this two-time Cannabis Cup winner is a favorite among lay tokers and celebrity cannabisseurs (ahem, Snoop Dogg) alike.

      As Master Kush sets in, you’ll feel remarkably relaxed as a tingly, soothing body high massages your physical form. You’ll also notice a gentle euphoria permeating your mind space that’ll heighten your senses and leave you feeling ultra happy but not mentally incapacitated. Don’t be surprised if things start to seem a bit psychedelic as Master Kush works its magic — go with the flow, and you’ll have a good time. As your high wears on, you’ll feel yourself melding with your couch cushions as your brain and body prepare for their imminent trip to dreamland.

      Where The Master Kush Strain Is Grown

      The masterful breeders at White Label Seeds (a sister company of Sensi Seeds) created the Master Kush strain in Amsterdam by crossing two landrace strains from Afghanistan and India. The strain was originally dubbed “High Rise” because it came to life inside an Amsterdam high-rise building.

      Master Kush Strain Summary

      If you’re a seasoned toker looking for a strain that’ll glue you to your couch quick-like and soothe you into a deep, refreshing sleep, Master Kush is worth trying. But if you’re gonna enjoy it, make sure your schedule is clear because you probably won’t be capable of much after you partake. If this hybrid blows your hair back, you may also enjoy strains with similar effects like Hindu Kush and Purple Kush.
