Master Kush is a strain originally named High Rise, which comes from south Amsterdam. This mostly Indica strain gained popularity in coffee shops there as a unique tetraploid strain. Most cannabis strains are diploid. They have two sets of chromosomes, one from each parent in each cell. Tetraploid strains carry four times the number of haploid chromosomes, making eight sets.
This potent indica hybrid, with a sativa/indica ratio of 10:90, can reach THC levels of up to 20%, which makes it one of the stronger medical strains around. Master Kush is a crossbreed of an original Hindu Kush strain and a pure skunk strain, though the exact genetics are unclear. These are among the strongest plants in the world. And Master Kush is one of the best-known strains in the world, winner of two Cannabis Cup awards and a personal favorite of Snoop Dogg. It was designed in the Netherlands and remains popular there, while it sells especially well on the West Coast of the United States.
