Platinum Master Kush has won several awards over the years. It won The Cannabis Cup, known as the Superbowl of pot, twice – once in 1992 and again in 1993. It is also the strain of choice for none other than Snoop Lion (Snoop Dog).
Platinum Master Kush produces strong, but not overwhelming, euphoria that can leave users in a blissful haze. More experienced users report a rise in creativity and intellectual curiosity.
Negative effects may include the usual dry eyes and mouth when Platinum Master Kush is smoked. Some patients also experience dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety with higher doses or when Master Kush is consumed as an edible.
Platinum Master Kush’s main use is for relieving stress and anxiety. The strong, Indica-based effects are ideal for relaxing in the evening. Platinum Master Kush is extremely effective in the treatment of insomnia. Its body-numbing high can help manage chronic pain. The strong, stereotypical ‘munchies’ produced by this strain may also be useful in stimulating appetite for patients suffering from eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia.
Master Kush is bred by Nirvana and is a cross between a true Hindu Kush and a Skunk. The strain flowers for around 63 to 70 days. Master Kush grows best indoors or in a greenhouse, where it can produce up to 200 grams per plant.
