MasterKush (Dutch Passion)
Masterkush is a low-maintenance, reliable, high-yielding strain. Humidity control is a must because enormous dense buds are prone to mold. You can take clones even in the beginning of the flowering stage.
A very powerful, heavy, long-lasting high with some unexpected sativa influence. Lazy energy, creative thoughts, happiness and desire to talk. The high is relaxing, calm, focused and functional. Good against the loss of appetite, insomnia, pain, stress, MS, PTSD, depression, asthma.

We bravely extracted this sturdy plant back from the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan, it is a compact and forgiving variety that grows well in any medium such as soil, hydro, coco etc. Master Kush produces an extremely potent smoke that is smooth and sweet with earthy/citrus flavours, the high is strong and powerful. Less odour than normal is produced during flowering (important for some growers).
Buds are large, heavy and pale green with long hairs that range from white to orange/brown. Master Kush is resistant to spidermite but can be susceptible to mould in humid conditions due to the sheer size and density of the bud growth.
Master Kush thrives under most growing conditions; it clones easily and is a reliably generous producer of very high quality pot. A favourite of ours, we highly recommend it to you.
Anthony Burnam (dutch-passion.nl):
master Kush by Dutch Passion is a great monster crop candidate. this is my number one cannabis plant. easy grow. great high. it is the on I want on hand. two Hindu Kush plants crossed is what it is. the REAL Master Kush in my humble opinion. just he best all around cannabis plant in the world. it does it all for me. monster Crop this plant is my advice. you will n NOT be disappointed IF you use Dutch Passion Genetics.
I try to keep a Dutch Passion Master Kush around permanently. I can take clones in bloom at any point and the plants from that are truly monsters. They call it Monster Cropping for a reason. This seems a very stable and straightforward plant. I guess I just like this plants stone and it is easy. I take 50% more finished product with cloning in bloom than from seed. The only problem I have is waiting for the plant to realize it is going back in veg and to just get over being in bloom. They are stubborn about it for 3 weeks. Worth it if you have the time. Not that much longer than waiting for a seed to throw some roots. Best thing I found out about weed since fimming was discovered.
Master Kush, Ja. This is quality indica OK. Good sized buds when you grow her in hydro for sure. Quality has always been her strong point so she is a consistent variety. Grown her 3 times and each time was good, no special comments or concern. Her aromas were maybe not the strongest but 'in the bag' she makes you want to breathe in the afghani smell which I guarantee is the original one. Afghan kush from hindu kush - recommend strong!
Master Kush was always my top indica, I was growing this way before 'kush' became a trendy weed. The main reason to grow this is the smoke, it is that simple. This is a solid old fashioned indica that hits you with a hard bolt of intense pleasure. It is potent too, you will need only a small bong full to deliver satisfaction. It is full of resin and burns with a crackle. The stone lasts for ages and if you have a few different types of bud stashed away I can guarantee that it is the Master Kush which you will be your favourite. That is how you know she is top quality Its a heavy yielding indica and as easy as pie to go grow, dont worry about growing her as she grows herself. The yields are a bonus, it is the quality of the stone which will have you coming back to this variety. I always keep a few packets of this in the fridge just in case she is ever out of stock. This is the original Kush and has not been surpassed.
Master Kush is a quality smoke, a proper indica and no mistake. Decent yields and a potent kick to her. If you are growing Afghani and like the real ones then give this baby a try. Dutch Passion say she is Ok for greenhouse too but all I can say is that indoors she is a top quality choice.
Grow Report #1
Tang grew two Dutch Cheese and two Masterkush plants in 6 litre airpots and averaged just over 100g of cannabis from each plant. The plants were flowered under two Grow Northern LED panels, Grow Northern are Dutch Passion’s LED technology partners and their 6-module LED is technically identical to the 190 Watt Dutch Passion High-Lite. These days more and more home growers are discovering that LED does a great job for the home grower. Whilst LED is more expensive initially, LED growers prefer them for the lower electricity usage and lower heat generation. Air pots have also seen a dramatic rise in popularity in the last 2 years, they deliver improved root development which results in larger plants and better yields. We see many of our customers switching permanently from traditional plant pots to the new Air-pots.
Tang describes the early stage of the grow “I started 2 of each strain from seed with no germination problems. Growth from both strains was similar all the way through with 30 days of vegative growth and 68 days in flower, they did stretch more than I wanted but that was purely down to small pot size. In early bloom the 2 Masterkush were quite low odour compared to the dankness of the Dutch Cheese but later on in flower the sweetness became a lot stronger.”
During bloom Tang introduced a 6-module LED which had been modified; 2 of the standard LED modules were replaced with the Rebel upgrades. The Rebel upgrade modules are special edition LED modules, they cost £100 per module and they are fitted with the brightest and most efficient Philips Luxeon Rebel LED’s. The Rebel upgrades are expensive, but they are popular with growers looking for the ultimate LED technology. Eventually we hope to see them become affordable for mainstream use.
Tang explained that the 6 litre airpots were the smallest realistic container, even so his plants went on to perform well and yield some good quality pot at the end. Tang summarized his grow “The 4 plants were grown in 6L Airpots (I would recommend at least 10L) in Plagron Light soil with Advanced Nutrients. The Lighting was a GN MS0006 for veg then a second MS0006 with Rebel Upgrades was added for bloom. Overall both varieties were very easy to grow with quality weed at the end.”
We conclude the grow review with some final remarks from Tang himself “The yields were reasonable with the 2 Cheeses at 232g and the 2 Kush at 214g. It's the quality of the flower that's the big thing for me with both these strains...the Masterkush is pure indica power, a very heavy stone. One of the strongest Dutch Passion strains I've grown and a definite evening vape. After cure the Kush has a strong lime citrus taste and smell very sweet but with earthy tones too....delicious. The Dutch Cheese is more of a daytime vape quite heady but you can focus and get things done (unlike the Kush lol). After cure the flavours are complex and very appealing. It tastes and smells more skunky than cheesy it's quite dank and spicy on the exhale. I would also recommend this strain for pain relief.”
“The only thing different I would do is grow them in bigger pots and I would advise anyone growing them use 10L at a minimum...”
Grow Report #2
This weeks grow review comes from Revert... a member of the highly rated and friendly Green Circle growers forum. The words and pictures are from him:
“The fact that this strain is supposed to be low odor got me interested in giving her a try. I started the grow in the middle of February and wasn't really looking to do a long grow. Summer is a nightmare for me as a loft grower so I wanted to make sure she was ready before the summer heat was there”
“Therefore I only did a short veg of about 30 days. I wish I did have more time to veg her; she would have yielded a lot more. Because of the short veg period I only topped her once. This was a mistake in retrospect because only topping her once caused her to stretch a little higher than what I wanted“
“I'm an LED grower and LED lights are a bit fickle in getting the distance between the canopy and the lights right. There was a little light burn (LED was too close) and fortunately only a small bit of bleached bud or hash tips. So there was no need to super crop her which I hate having to do in flower.”
“I grew her in bio nova Coco coir using canna nutrients. Can't go wrong with Canna in my opinion. Grew her the same way as usual. Fed nothing for the first week and then started upping the feed by 0.2 EC (Electrical Conductivity) every second week or so. She has a wee bit of a magnesium deficiency around week 3 but I fixed that by foliar feeding with canna mono magnesium and adding 0.1EC extra magnesium. to the feed. I kept the feed on the low side in this grow and never really went over 1.0 EC in total. The only other nutrient I used was GHE diamond nectar fulvic acid. As an experiment I did not use pk 13/14 or any other bloom boosters. Buds were still big and firm. “
“Like I already said I'm a LED grower. I used 3 different panels in this grow. One Dutch Passion HighLight 006, one Bysen Helios and a new GEHL Zeus LED. The Zeus uses COB (Chip on Board) LEDs that I wanted to try. It also comes with four x 5w extra UVB LEDs that can be turned on during flower for extra resin development. Total wattage used was 400 watt during veg and around 600w in flower.”
“I've never grown with HPS so can't really compare the result with HPS grown buds but I do believe that LED grown buds are more potent than HPS albeit yield will be better with HPS. I've heard this on many occasions already by other growers that tried LED. What I can confirm is that this grow produced some of the icky-stickiest buds I've grown thus far. I can't say for sure yet if the extra UVB has something to do with it, the jury is still out on this, but these buds really knock my socks off”
“The harvest was on day 113 from seed. or day 84 of 12/12. I always give my girls a few extra weeks to make sure trichomes are mostly amber to get that couch lock feeling that us Indica growers love so much. I gave her a full 2 weeks flush with rainwater flushing all those chemicals out of the medium and giving me a smoother tasting bud in the end.”
“She is still curing as I type this sentence but I can already say this is one of my favorite smokes. It is the most relaxing smoke I’ve grown. No chance of paranoia with this one. After a few puffs of this your legs start to go all wobbly and your body has a meltdown following with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. :) Taste is sweet, spicy and smooth.”
“She yielded about 260 grams of prime bud in the end so no complaints from me. Like I said already this is a low odor strain to grow. You can get away with not using a filter during most of the grow but when she is in full flower it is necessary to use a filter. Even after harvest she smells just a much as any other strain. So be careful and do the right thing.”
