Love this Indica!

Master Kush is a strong and hard hitting indica that covers all the basics you are looking for in an indica. Piney sweet taste when inhaled resulting in a wonderful sedation and actually can double as aphrodisiac as well, providing the perfect bedtime medication. Unlike most indicas, there is little chance of falling into the heavy munchie trap at midnight. Also it’s an old faithful in the area, so it’s a well developed strain with high THC levels. 2 thumbs up!

Master Crafted Sedative!

Master Kush is ideal night-time medicine for me, as it consistently helps me unwind and recover from another day of chronic pain. It is what most would consider a classic Indica, dank and skunky, with mocha notes and a woodsy aftertaste. The smoke from a Vapir Prima vaporizer is thick, rich, and extremely smooth. It is quite strong, however, and neophytes are advised to take it slow.

MK is not what I'd call super-psychoactive, it won't inspire deep thought or creative activity, unless you're a vivid dreamer. Mostly, it is an excellent sedative, whose chief side-effect is easy slumber--a potent insomnia-buster, for those of us who have trouble falling asleep, or staying asleep. It can be a potent appetite stimulant, so you may want to hide the snacks before bedtime!

Liberty Cannabis' Master Kush has achieved terrific consistency over time, and the buds are generously full and dense, dark green and heavily frosted with trichomes. Long-lasting effects equal excellent value--just don't overdo it if you want to stay awake!

Old Reliable

A number of strains have come on and off the shelves at TWC since I became a patient but few have the consistency and quality of the Master Kush. While other strains (such as BerryO, for one) seem to fluctuate in terms of potency and the immediate visual impact of the buds themselves, Master Kush always seems to arrive in dense, heady buds. Holistic Remedies has really perfected this strain, and I might even go so far as to call it their signature offering.

The earthy taste of the MK is its calling card, and the burst of skunky fragrance after grinding the bud is almost as intoxicating as the smoke. Master Kush tends to expand heavily in the lungs, and has at times given me an outright coughing fit, but I've never had complaint with the effect. A heavy indica, I at least try to save my Master Kush for after the sun has gone down. But something this good, I often can't help myself enjoying a puff earlier in the day with a coffee or soda to balance me out.

If you like the couch lock effect and being able to watch hours of your time pass by easy, I would recommend the Master Kush. If you are a bit more adventurous in your experiences, I might look elsewhere as the sedative effect can be quite strong.

"NEW" Master Kush - Good things come in small packages!

I use the Indica and Kush medical cannabis strains to treat my fibromyalgia and insomnia frequently, and this "new" Master Kush strain currently at Takoma Wellness Center is one potent medical strain that I have learned to love and rely on. Don’t let the size fool you, these dense little buds are packed with terpenes and cannabinoids that will invigorate and medicate strongly. The reason I call it "New" is Master Kush is now ten times more potent and better than when it came onto the market in DC back in 2013. David and Josh from Takoma Wellness Center helped select some choice flowers that have light and dark green leaves, that don’t have many orange hairs and are not "sticky", but are glistening with a frosty-coating of wonderful smelling terpenes. The buds are very dense, compact and like I said, very potent. The THC level is very high at 20%, and it lists CBD at 1%, a great muscle relaxer among other uses. CBN is listed at just under 1%, a cannabinoid that boosts the THC's psychoactive effects.

Master Kush, or “MK”, has a strong aroma and bouquet. The first smell that you sense is a tart, cherry aroma, balanced out by a bitter side that smells of sea salt and chives, and a sour side that reminded me of cheese and lemon grass. The spicy side is there too, with chili, pepper and cloves tickling the nose.

The smoke of MK from a water pipe is spicy and tickles the nose, and is not harsh for a Kush. MK does expand some and can cause coughing, so I would recommend smaller dosages, or ingest it orally as drops or through food. The taste of MK is very yummy, and I tasted cherry and lime. I did not get “cottonmouth”, and MK does not really cause “the munchies” too much.

The Sativa-like effects of MK hit you first, and hits hard and rushes through the skin and glands, and you first feel it in the head area. This is a very strong psychoactive strain, which normally you would find in a Sativa or Sativa-dominant strain probably due to the CBN as mentioned above. A very pleasurable feeling comes over you, and headaches, anxiety and more are eased. The strong Indica side kicks in very soon after, melting muscle stiffness and easing muscle spasms and pain. MK also eases joint inflammation. MK does cause deep relaxation, and some drowsiness, so this strain is best for relaxation or night time. I use this as my sleep medicine, to help prepare for my night’s sleep or if I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep.

BEST FOR: Muscle issues, insomnia, pain.
* Great for shingles, eczema, psoriasis, rashes and other skin afflictions!

ALSO GOOD FOR: Autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia, lupus, lyme disease, ADD/ADHD, anxiety disorders, depression, Parkinson’s, MS, endometriosis, pain, phantom limb, AIDS, glaucoma, arthritis and more. Ask a TWC crew member about this potent little strain the next time you are in.
