Master Kush Strain – Hindu Kush strain
Master Kush Strain also known as “High Rise strain,” “Grandmaster Kush,” and “Purple SoCal Master Kush” is a popular Indica marijuana strain crossed from two landrace strains from different parts of the Hindu Kush strain region by the Dutch White Label Seed Company in Amsterdam.
