Master Kush Strain Overview
Master Kush is vintage flavored cannabis strain popular in Dutch Coffee shops since the mid-90s. It gained popularity in coffee shops as a unique tetraploid strain. Thus, most cannabis strains are diploid. The diploid has two sets of chromosomes, one from each parent in each cell. Tetraploid strains carry four times the number of haploid chromosomes, making eight sets. With 80% Indica content, it is a great strain to kick back with after a stressful week.
