What are the common effects of Master Kush cannabis?
Considered one of the most legendary strains out there, Amsterdam-bred indica-dominant Master Kush, which has an indica-to-sativa ratio of 90:10 and a THC content that can range from 20% to 24%, is said to be the offspring of parent landrace strain Hindu Kush, from the Hindu Kush region, and the classic OG of Skunk No. 1.
As a near-pure indica, Master Kush is notorious and beloved for how it provides a relaxing, well-balanced full-body high without making your brain feel slower than a sloth waking up from a nap.
This powerhouse of an indica might not quite be a one-and-done kind of strain, but it’s pretty close to it. As such, those with a low tolerance to THC will want to be especially mindful of what a potent hybrid Master Kush indica is.
Not long after inhaling your first puff or two or Master Kush, you’ll likely feel a mood-boosting kind of cerebral buzz and some happiness-inducing euphoria that tends to last the duration of the high, or, at least, until you end up fast asleep.
However, before Master Kush brings on the Sandman, it will first gently lull you into a blissful state until the next thing you know, you and your body are contentedly glued to the couch in an alert yet vegetative state taking in its slightly hallucinogenic effects.
Due to this indica-heavy hybrid’s drowsy, narcotic-like buzz, it’s definitely best reserved as a nighttime strain or an afternoon where all you want to do is veg out and snooze the day away.
What are the therapeutic benefits of Master Kush?
Master Kush’s potent effects aren’t just for recreational users to enjoy, this indica is also beloved by the medical marijuana community for its anecdotal therapeutic properties.
Often prescribed by physicians where medical cannabis is legal, Master Kush is considered to be effectual in treating both short- and long-term mental and physical health issues.
On the mental health end of the stick, this high-quality strain has gained a reputation for helping patients mentally and physically relax to the point that their stress and worries seem to magically melt away. In addition, Master Kush’s uplifting and cheer-inducing effects may help shift things for those struggling with feelings of doom and gloom, as well as other mood-related disorders.
For medical marijuana patients who are suffering from chronic aches and pains, muscle spasms, joint aches, headaches, migraines, and arthritis, Master Kush just may be the alternative medicinal option they’ve been looking for.
Also, as is pretty standard for an indica-dominant strain, especially for one that is almost a pure indica, Master Kush is consistently prescribed to those struggling with insomnia or other sleep disorders that keep them from getting a full night’s rest.
What are Master Kush’s adverse effects?
When consumed in larger doses, such as when a user chooses to exceed their usual tolerance level, Master Kush may at times induce a mild case of paranoia–especially in those who are already pre-disposed to anxiety. Other users who have over-indulged in this indica have occasionally reported some minor dizzy spells and/or slight headaches. However, all of these negative side effects are generally connected to smoking too much of this potent strain.
The most commonly felt adverse effects are the two that the majority of strains come with–cottonmouth and dry, itchy eyes. However, provided you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water you should be fine on the cottonmouth side of things, and if your eyes start to feel a little dry/itchy, then simply using some eye drops should do the trick.
What does Master Kush smell and taste like?
Master Kush’s Terpenes
All cannabis strains get their fragrance and flavor profiles from the terpenes that they contain. When it comes to Master Kush, α-Bisabolol, caryophyllene, myrcene, L-Limonene, terpineol, and linalool are its main terpenes. (To find out the main characteristics of each terpene, simply looking it up online should tell you everything you need to know.)
Aroma and Flavor
Master Kush has a very pungent, earthy smell that is quite distinct. Along with its earthy sandalwood smell is that of a fragrantly sweet citrus aroma that is sure to fill the room once combusted.
This indica’s taste is also very pungent and dank with a woody-sweet flavor that is both enjoyable and smooth when combusted. Complementing this combination of flavors are some earthy and succulently sweet bursts of citrus and fresh crisp pine.
While Master Kush’s smell and taste are far from weak, they also aren’t harsh, with many describing them as “classic” and “vintage.”
How do I grow Master Kush feminized seeds?
Master Kush is an easy-to-grow hybrid that produces incredibly robust and strong plants that are highly resistant to issues like common molds, pests, mildew, and fungi. As such, this indica is considered to be an excellent option for cultivators of all skill levels from novice growers to the most advanced growers. Plus, since Growers Choice Seeds only sells feminized cannabis seeds, which are backed by a 90% germination rate guarantee, growers don’t have to worry about keeping an eye out for male plants as feminized seeds have a 99% chance of maturing into bud-producing female plants.
While Master Kush prefers to be grown indoors, it can be successfully cultivated outside in a hot and sunny tropical setting or in a greenhouse. Plus, outdoor growers who are able to provide this strain with the type of outdoor environment that its plants need in order to thrive, can look forward to even larger yields than what they would achieve with indoor growing.
What do Master Kush plants look like?
As mentioned above, Master Kush’s plants are particularly hardy, which is part of the reason that they’re a good choice for beginner growers. In addition, this indica-dominant hybrid’s plants are more squat and stocky with short stems and surprisingly wide rich green leaves.
The nuggets that Master Kush plants produce are tightly packed together, as one would expect from a near-pure indica. Its dense buds tend to be light to neon green and interwoven with orange pistils and covered in a frosting of sticky white crystalline trichomes.
When to harvest your Master Kush cannabis plants
As is pretty standard for a cannabis strain, Master Kush provides outdoor growers with larger yields than indoor growers. However, cultivated inside, it’s a lot easier to ensure that this indica gets all of its lighting, humidity, and temperature needs met on a consistent basis.
When grown indoors, Master Kush should take about 8 – 10 weeks to enter its flowering period, after which it generally provides cultivators with an above-average yield of around 395 grams per square meter.
Cultivated outside in the right setting, this indica’s approximate 510+ grams per plant should be ready to harvest after finishing its flowering phase sometime near the end of September into early October.

1. Hindu Kush: This game-changing, easy-to-grow strain is even that much easier to cultivate due to this one being the autoflowering version of the pure indica landrace strain. As such, this version contains 90% indica and 10% ruderalis without losing any of its indica properties. Hindu Kush is believed to also be able to call Master Kush one of its many award-winning hybrid offspring.
