Master Kush Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Altitude Organic Medicine

Grade: B+

Type: Indica-dominant hybrid, Hindu Kush x Skunk

Price: $45/8th

Appearance: (8.25/10)  This Master Kush had a solid, above-average density blockheaded Kush structure that showed no signs of stress prior to harvest.  The timing was perhaps a little bit early for our tastes, as there weren’t many amber trichomes visible (mostly cloudy, which is totally fine for some).  Typically Indica, it had a medium amount of leaf coverage, but the trim was good enough to not be an issue.

Aroma: (8/10)  This Master Kush was a little less spicy than ones that we’ve had lately, but instead offered a lightly sweet pine with a hint of spice that reminded one reviewer of marjoram.  While a little bit of fuel sharpness was picked up, this sample was not overtly pungent… it’s a Kush with finesse.

Taste: (7.5/10)  Clean, spicy, and lightly floral — we all enjoyed the light and pleasant flavor, but wished for the more pungent experience we’ve gotten from Master Kushes in the past.  The smoke was smooth and easy on the throat for most of the team, but one reviewer using a bong complained of sore lungs due to expansion.

Effects: Like many Kushes, it starts off with a package of head/face pressure and heat fluctuations, but this one also had a rather strong coursing body presence that seemed to emanate from the middle of the chest outwards to the rest of the body.  The head pressure was borderline uncomfortable for one reviewer, but others didn’t seem to mind.  The effects from there seemed to depend on context, as reviewers who medicated later at night felt very relaxed, being pulled into the TV and other sedentary activities.  One reviewer who medicated in the morning reported lightly euphoric feelings, a boost in sociability, and strong body relaxation.  This versatile med started to taper off in a major was at 2 hours, but lingered on past that.

Duration: Long, 2.5 – 3 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Body relaxation, mood elevation, appetite stimulation, light analgesic pain relief (not migraines), anti-anxiety, and some sleep aid properties.

Overall: This was a light and non-aggressive Kush sample, with solid structure that showed proper care prior to harvest.  Some reviewers liked the fresh scent and taste, while others felt it didn’t live up to ideal Master Kushes of the past.  Either way, the effects were enjoyable and rather relaxing after the initial potency wore off.  Seemingly changing with the time of day, the effect is suitable for both daytime (light doses) and evening use, as it doesn’t cloud the brain much at all.
