Recently, I was invited to a closed Facebook group "Do You Dab?? 420" The crowd is an amazingly friendly bunch who often live stream when they are enjoying a dab session. The group also has plenty of cannabis tokers who share pics of their rolls and bowls.
After participating in a few chats, I set out a poll similar to the one I had on Twitter. It didn't take too long that there was was a clear favouring for Master Kush.
Master Kush won with 5 votes out of a total of ten voters. Clear lead over the other five choices
So why is this the "Master Kush"?
The name we use for our herb and cross strains, "Kush", refers a mountainous area in India, Hindu Kush. Using Wikipedia to see where this was located, I came across the origin of the Kush region name. A bit of a surprise: Kush means "Kill" or "Killer".
This frozen part of the world is the birthplace of two landrace Indicas. These strains were bred together to produce The "Master Kush". No one is 100% certain of the exact genetics many sources repeat pretty much the same thing: "One pure Hindu Kush strain and one pure Skunk strain."

Fair enough, challenged accepted.
I busted that gram and a bit without weighing it, (scales batteries died), and I huffed that skunky scent as it fell into the container. The smell coming from this was amazing! I lidded the container and got myself all set up to toke and take notes. I tapped it so the herb collected to one corner and popped open the lid.
Big deep breath...
Master Kush tingled deep in the nose, musky and strong. With all these strains of Kush the crew at organicbcweed.com picked out for me, I am becoming more tune to that particular odor and taste. It's that taste I also found in Cannabisimo's Moroccan hash.
Not sure what it was that made me decide to toke that whole baggie. But it was done within the half hour. So how did I feel after spending that short, but quality time with The Master?
I spent the next good two hours or so with a most delicious buzz. I felt great!
I thought I had killed The Master Kush with a final blow with my Hammer. I misjudged a wee bit. As I packed up my stuff, I went about my business and clean forgot a paragraph I was working on in my head.
Poof. Gone. Like a fart in the wind.
Meanwhile, as I was searching in my head for those lost words, a warm comforting heaviness settled on my shoulders and lower back. The lovely Indica buzz was making its way into all corners of my aches and sore spots. There was a call to action which involved me laying down on the sofa... affirmative action for Napsville... But then...

Time to go out in public then! Nap later.
The lines were pretty long at the Post Office, but I wasn't worried or stressed out. My mind was calm and peaceful; anxiety was kept to minimum, but what about paranoia? Other than feeling a bit more self-aware, I didn't feel like I was being watched or observed. After a decade of recreational and medicinal toking, I rarely ever feel paranoid. It isn't in my power to change what people are going to think or say about me. I can only control how I choose to react in that situation. There's nothing gained by renting out mental space to your haters and their comments.
In that short 30 mins where I hoovered down that skunky gram, I was rewarded with two or so hours of calm and relief from my fibro sore spots. The vape that I pulled from The Smite, emerged as big blue and violet clouds, very satisfying. Master Kush has an "Old School" taste. It's a bit hashy and herbal with very obvious Kush notes. This bud floored me, it exceeded my expectations. 5/5
