Master Chem is a funky, skunky strain that only people in the southwest seem to be able to find. With rave reviews on its potent mellow effects, this hybrid strain is one you won’t want to miss. Below you’ll find everything you need to know about this delicious strain in our latest Master Chem strain review, including its scent, flavor, effects, medical uses, lineage, appearance and potency levels.
Master Chem: Background
Master Chem is a well-balanced 50/50 hybrid cross between Master Kush and Chem Dawg. While we don’t know who the first person to cultivate this phenotype is, we do know that it’s made a huge splash in the cannabis industry in the southwest US. It tests anywhere from 24-27% making it one of the more potent strains available out there, making it ideal for both recreational users and medical patients alike. Rich in terpenes like Myrcene, Limonene, and b-Caryophyllene, Master Chem is the perfect choice for a gassy, flavorful mental lift and deep-seated physical relief.
It’s easy to pick the strain from a lineup, too. The plant itself stands tall and gangly with medium-dense colas and dark green water leaves. The buds feature rich shades of deep, forest green alongside light green and golden yellow hues. Sandy orange pistils are peppered throughout, though each flower is coated in a light dusting of amber and white trichomes that give it a beautiful, frosty appearance and plenty of potency.
Master Chem Scents, Flavors and Effects
We may be a little biased, but strains that smell like Master Chem really do it for us. It’s scent brings the best of both worlds from both Master Kush and Chemdawg, meaning it offers both a citrusy zest and a fuel-tinged funk. On the plant, you’ll notice a dank, earthy funk with sharp citrus notes behind it. However, dried flowers also pack a punch. Breaking open a dried nug releases tons of earthy, fuel-like scents familiar of Chemdawg. However, it also gets that kushy funk thanks to the Limonene and Caryophyllene terpenes. Ultimately its a scent of a citrusy, yet spicy and earthy punch.
The flavor is a bit more refined, but equally as loud. If you love those diesel flavors from strains like Chemdawg, you’ll love Master Chem, which takes it to the next level. The inhale brings forth very pungent, sour notes, along with a very dense, spice-tinged smoke that is sure to make even seasoned smokers cough. It really shines on the aftertaste, though. Sweet relief from the thick, spicy smoke, Master Chem leaves behind very bright and juicy flavors of fresh herbs and citrus. While that kush flavor is always prominent, the lasting impression is a refreshing herbal and citrus-forward rendition of the strain.
While the scents and flavors are inspiring to say the least, the effects shine even brighter. Master Chem is a perfect hybrid, up there with Blue Dream. On the first inhale, you’ll be met with a gripping mental lift that will feeling blissful and euphoric, if not a little bit happy and giggly. After a few minutes, you’ll notice a relaxing effect on both the mind and the body, leaving you feeling upbeat and ready for whatever you have on your agenda. You may find it useful for a creative boost or just for zoning out and playing video games after a long and stressful day. It has many practical applications both day and night.
Medical Uses of the Master Chem Strain
While Master Chem is a balanced hybrid, it tends to be on the more relaxing side of things. Between its effects, high potency levels, and plenty of Limonene, Myrcene, and b-Caryophyllene terpenes, Master Chem is the perfect addition to any medicine cabinet. Many medical patients reach for it to combat stress, anxiety and depression. However, its physical effects are useful against minor aches and pains, including cramps and headaches. It’s also potent against nausea and a lack of appetite.
Overall, Master Chem is one of those strains you just have to try, especially if you’re looking for something gassy, citrusy, and globally soothing. During the day, it’s motivational and inspiring, and at the end of the night, its uber relaxing. Whether you’re feeling anxious or down in the dumps, or just dealing with some minor chronic pain, reach for Master Chem for a little pick me up and some solid physical relief. With 24-27% THC, there’s a lot to like about it, at any time of day or night.
