Master Kush

With a name like Master Kush it should be no surprise that this strain will give you everything you’re looking for in an indica form a full body relaxation and a nearly mind-numbing mental relaxation as well. Bred by Dutch White Seed Label Company in Amsterdam this strain was created from two landrace strains from different parts of the Hindu Kush region.

Jesus OG

Newer on the scene, Jesus OG is a hybrid of Hell’s OG and Jack the Ripper that was bred by Subcool’s The Dank.
