Master OG Kush Strain Review


If you’re already somewhat familiar with Master OG Kush, then we’re sure that you’re already well aware of the fact that it has considerably high potency levels.

Master OG Kush comes with a THC level that can be anywhere from 20-24% which means that it can be used for both recreational and medicinal purposes, alike.

As a side note, due to the very high levels of THC within this particular strain of weed, we strongly recommend that you consider trying a slightly milder strain of cannabis if you are a beginner, or do not have a very high cannabis tolerance, as this Indica-leaning bud doe run the potential risk of causing couch-lock.

What Is Master OG Kush?

Not your average Indica, Master OG Kush will provide you with the standard bodily high associated with Indicas, the only difference?

Rather than taking a hit and instantly heading off for a peaceful night’s sleep, or kicking back on your favorite sofa spot – Master OG Kush will influx you with intriguing boosts of euphoric inspiration, which makes it a great choice for the busy, everyday person looking to handle their everyday life with increased energy levels and a cool, relaxed demeanor.

Ever since its first inception, Master Kush has received a plethora of different awards and has even won the prestigious Cannabis Cup in 1992 and 1993.

Since then, Master OG Kush has gone from strength to strength and remained one of the most popular strains of cannabis in the world. The iconic rapper, Snoop Dogg, even included it within his own line of buds!

How Was Master OG Kush Developed?

Master OG Kush was initially developed in the Netherlands, by the White Label Seed Company.

At first, Master OG Kush was given the name High Rise due to the size of the building in which it was first created, although it was soon renamed to Master Kush due to its premium quality.

Even though its exact origins aren’t 100% confirmed, it is widely believed that Master OG Kush is made from two very popular types of cannabis strains, which are the Hindu Kush and Skunk #1 – which are two classic strains that are still, to this day, extremely popular and in high demand.

Grow Info

Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned cannabis cultivator, or looking to grow your very own bud for the first time, Master OG Kush can make for a simple and enjoyable experience.

However, prior to purchasing your seeds and planting them, we strongly recommend that you take a moment to research whether or not it is legal to grow cannabis in your area of the world.

Ideally, Master OG Kush will need to be cultivated in an indoor environment for the best results, although you could alternatively opt to grow it within an outdoor greenhouse.

Master OG Kush will only take around 8-10 weeks before it will fully cultivate and flower, and will offer you an extremely generous yield that will last you a long time.
