Skunk#1 X Afghani
Master Kush is an original Kush cannabis variety from Dutch Passion. This strain won 1st prize in the Kush category at the Highlife cup in 2017 and received the best rating with the highest number of points from the judges and was crowned 'Overall Cup Winner'.
The taste is fresh, sweet, earthy and spicy, a very tasty combination. Master Kush has a subtle Kush scent with a mainly earthy and citrus-like aroma. During the growth and flowering phases, less fragrance is produced compared with other Kush strains. The aroma and taste are sometimes reminiscent of real hand-rubbed charas (hash).
The taste is sweet, earthy, spicy and fruity. After a good cure period you can usually smell and taste a strong lime/lemon smell and taste with a sweet and earthy character. A really tasty combination! On the 'inhale' the more fresh and sweet flavors come to the fore. On the 'exhale' you taste more of the earthy and spicy character of this original Kush strain. This variety is wonderfully soft to smoke and also has a calming effect.
Master Kush grows large elongated buds that are full of resin. It is a nice Kush variety with a more subtle smell and taste than you might expect. The effect is calming and soothing. The high is more physical than mental. Although this strain can also cause an initial state of euphoria, it is mainly suitable for use in the evening. This strain is easy to grow, taking an average of 8-9 weeks to fully mature and produce bigger buds than most Kush strains on the market.
Master Kush is a very tough, easy-to-grow Afghan Indica variety. This is an original Kush variety from the 1980s. This strain is originally from the Hindu Kush Mountains in Northern Afghanistan. It is a pure Indica cannabis strain and is one of the oldest original Kush varieties.
This was a customer favourite decades before today's modern Kush strains (such as OG Kush) became popular. Master Kush is the right strain for growers seeking a powerful calming Indica high that is free of paranoia and that will leave both your body and mind relaxed. A potent strain that is loved by medical and recreational users alike.
Master Kush is an easy-to-grow Indica. She is known for her robustness and ability to grow in a wide variety of conditions, coping better than others with periods of cold or heat. The origin of our Master Kush lies in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan. Strains from this region are known for their powerful and robust character, making them ideal for growers looking for a plant that can take a beating.
Master Kush is a compact variety that grows well in any medium, be it soil, hydro or coco. She thrives in most growing conditions. Master Kush is easy to clone and is a reliable, generous producer of very high quality cannabis. These cannabis seeds produce strong plants that are also suitable for the novice grower.
She is very easy to understand nutritionally and thrives in organic soil, which benefits her aroma and flavor profile. This lady has a less pungent odour during the early parts of her life, which may be useful to some growers. It is a compact to medium sized strain. She grows slightly taller than other smaller original Afghan Kush varieties such as Night Queen or Afghani #1.
The buds are large and heavy with long pistils that range from bright orange to brownish. Master Kush can be prone to mold in humid conditions due to the sheer size and density of the buds. That is why good ventilation and low humidity are of great importance. Her plant structure can best be described as compact to medium.
The internode distance is small, which ensures that the buds can stack nicely together. She has a short stretching phase of about 2-3 weeks but grows strongly once the clock is turned to 12/12. The long heavy buds usually have few leaves, which makes this cannabis strain easy to cut and is therefore also very popular with commercial growers in combination with the short flowering time.
The genetics used for Master Kush guarantee the following properties:
Master Kush is easy to grow and has a powerful narcotic high with a calming and soothing effect.
Master Kush is a potent strain with pure Indica potency. She is known for a strong, potent and long lasting high. She has a powerful effect and a heavy body stone. This is a strain with a good balance between physical and mental effects. It gives the user physical relaxation without the full mind-numbing effect that sometimes occurs with pure Indicas.
Master Kush also seems to provide an energy boost to your senses, making them seem sharper than usual. Master Kush's high is initially euphoric and up-lifting. As time goes by, the high transforms into a more relaxing and calming sense of well-being.
It is really a very nice strain to smoke in the evening. Medical users report that this strain has anti-stress and anti-paranoia properties. When you consume a large dose you will notice a strong sense of couch lock. Ideal for a relaxed weekend day or a lazy evening!
Master Kush has a short flowering time of 8 weeks on average. Some phenotypes take just a week longer to fully mature. These are often the slightly larger plants that can bloom for 60-65 days on a 12/12 light cycle. In perfect conditions you will see that Master Kush needs around 56 days. Master Kush stretches a little more during the flowering phase than her Afghan sister Night Queen. This ensures that you can work with a slightly shorter vegetative growth phase.
Master Kush can also be grown outdoors, but it should be noted that she does not like humid conditions. In general, this is a strain that does well outdoors. But she also likes a dry climate. Temperature swinging between day and night extremes are not a problem, but too much rain or moisture from morning dew can cause bud rot during the late flowering phase.
Preferably grow her in a sunny and dry climate. If you want to grow her in a temperate climate, make sure you have a shelter and sufficient ventilation. A greenhouse that can be darkened earlier is often also a good solution. Outdoors, she will be ready for harvest in late September to mid-October (depending on latitude and climate).
Master Kush is a heavy yielding strain. It is not difficult for novice growers to get a heavy yield. Her long buds are firm and quite weighty. On average, yields of around 400 g/m2 can be achieved. In the hands of an expert and with the SCROG method, yields of up to 500 g/m2 are possible. It is also possible to grow Master Kush in a SOG.
Outdoors, yields will range from tens of grams (for plants in small pots) to 500-750g per plant for sturdy outdoor plants in large pots or in the ground. In a sunny and dry climate she can really grow into a true monster. Indoors, she thrives in a wide variety of conditions and does well on soil, coco and hydro. Whether you're using HPS bulbs or LED bulbs (or maybe even CMH or Plasma), this lady always knows how to perform. Very uniform and commercial.
Master Kush is a potent Afghan Indica that grows practically on her own. It is one of the most robust and strong strains for indoor growing. She likes a stable and dry climate, so keep that in mind if you want to get the finest possible results. In addition, Master Kush likes a generously sized grow container with sufficient soil, especially when you work with low numbers of plants per m2.
She doesn't like wet feet and would rather be a little drier than too wet. This lady does really well on a Hydro system. In combination with LED lamps and possibly a UV lamp (UVB and UVA) the buds become even stickier and more potent!
Provide adequate ventilation and low humidity so that the buds can harden off well and do not get rot/mould. This Indica grows as a compact hybrid photoperiod so you can work with a shorter pre-growth period than would be required with other Indica-dominant strains.
Master Kush is a favourite among the Dutch Passion team, a strain that we can recommend to everyone. Apart from the ease of growth, it is a potent cannabis strain with a powerful high and a very pleasant effect. The strong 'body stone' allows you to relax and unwind!
