MK Ultra is a potent indica marijuana strain made by crossing OG Kush with G13. This strain produces euphoric effects that are fast-acting and best for when strong medication is desired. MK Ultra is bred by T.H. Seeds and won 1st place Indica at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2003 and 2nd place in 2004. This strain gets its name from the methods of mental manipulation employed by the CIA’s Project MKUltra. Indoor growing is facilitated by the plant’s short stature, and its above average yield delivers particularly sticky, dense, pungent flowers.
The strain was produced by crossing an OG Kush female from Los Angeles’ JoshD Farms with a G13 male from Barney’s Farm in Amsterdam. The strain was named after CIA experiments conducted during the 1950s code named MK Ultra, during which experiments were performed on humans to develop drugs to aid with interrogation. The seed bank reports the strain delivers a strong, hypnotic high, and a long- lasting piney aroma.
T.H. Seeds founder Adam Dunn said the strain is the first European cross to use an American OG Kush. The seed bank reports MK Ultra mainly has Indica lineage and grows short, producing frosty colas with high resin yields in a 56-63 day flowering cycle. The strain won 1st and 2nd Place Indica Cups at the 2003 and 2004 High Times Cannabis Cups, respectively.
