MK Ultra

MK Ultra is one of the most powerful indicas in the world. When you need a deeply hypnotic and potent full-body high, this strain won't disappoint.

MK Ultra is the love child of two famous indica hybrids, G-13 and OG Kush. The resulting strain is heavy-hitting and fast-acting.  Recommended for experienced consumers, the physically sedative effects of MK Ultra can take you by surprise. Even the most canna-savvy individuals can find themselves in a serious couch-lock after a few tastes of this strain.

Those who struggle with insomnia will love MK Ultra. Save this strain for late at night. Otherwise, you may find yourself drifting off or ready for a nap. The effects can be described as almost hypnotic. Be prepared to surrender yourself to a powerful full-body experience with some delightful euphoric sensations.

Medical consumers often use MK Ultra for severe pain. The deep relaxation this strain provides may be helpful for muscle spasms. One of the strongest indica strains in the world, it may even help cancer patients cope with pain and nausea from chemotherapy.

The THC levels in this strain aren't the most impressive (up to 22%), but MK Ultra's indica effects are extremely pronounced. This strain has won several awards, including best indica at the 2003 High Times Cannabis Cup.
