MK Ultra Strain: An Overview

MK Ultra is a hybrid marijuana strain that has a strong Indica dominance. The intriguing name of this strain is derived from project MK Ultra, a 1950s CIA operation meant to conduct experiments to control the minds of government leaders and civilians. The name of this marijuana strain may appear strange at first, but smoking a small amount of it will justify the naming. It’s said to exercise high cerebral and hypnotic effects on people. It’s so because of the high THC content of approx 18 percent and about 0.1 percent CBD content. On top of it, it is a hybrid formed by the cross of OG Kush and G 13 strains. That’s why MK Ultra is a reliable and strong variant. Because of all these reasons, this strain received first place in the Indica category at High Times Cannabis Cup in the year 2003.

  • Appearance, taste, and aroma

The maximum height of these plants is between 100 and 120 cm. Like its parent Indica variant, it has a thick flower and bud structure. Both the buds and flowers are sticky in nature due to the presence of a coating of white resin. The flowers possess a strong, pungent aroma, while the cultivators say that they have an oddly mixed stench of burnt plastic, diesel oil, and lime. In contrast, the flavor is pine-like, sweet, and earthy. And the smoke is quite smooth. If you are a regular user of cannabis, you can try out this strain from Dispensary My Pure Canna.

  • Its effects

The users experience its cerebral and hypnotic effects instantly after smoking it. At first, the strain-induced high causes the eyelids to become heavy and droopy. Ultimately the person will experience an inability to move the body. MK Ultra elevates one’s mood, and that’s why users frequently have a smiley face until the effects last.

This strain may be popular among cannabis users, but it is also used by many for its medical benefits. It can treat ailments like:

  • The cultivation procedure

T.H. Seeds initially cultivated this strain in the 1990s. The seeds of MK Ultra are readily available online. So, literally, anyone can purchase them. You can grow it indoors or outdoors.
