Weed Review: Master Kush
We got our hands on this from a guy who dropped this off after his softball game, and needed a shave. It's called Master Kush and we paid $70 for an 8th of the goodness. It's a hindu/skunk hybrid that originates from Holland, and this indica/sativa mix will be your best friend on a sleepless night. You'll be sleeping in no time.
Its covered with crystals that glisten in the light like tiny specs of glitter. The smell is a clean and refreshing mix of the earthiness of pine tree clippings with the sweetness of major league chew bubble gum. The buds are bright green with tiny hints of purple, and are very dense. All the buds are good sized, larger than a grape and smaller than a Cadbury cream egg.
Despite being so dense, the nugs crumble apart with ease. The bud was dried perfectly because when breaking it apart most of the crystals stay stuck to the plant matter instead of stuck to your fingers or the grinder. The bowl burns fairly quick generating a very thick stream of smoke into your lungs. If it is paced right you won't cough at all. Very smooth taste, just like how it smells.
The high rolls up on you like a helicopter passing you by. Slow and faint right at first, but increasing in its intensity until you're totally consumed with it. I smoked one little bowl and I'm totally rocked. The high is all over the place from the back of my eye balls to the backs of my ears. The Master Kush is truly a weed for serious smokers only, and only if those serious smokers don't have any plans for the evening.
Look for Master Kush in your local dispensary or weed-guy's house.
