MK Ultra Strain Review
MK Ultra is one of those hybrids that has a fascinating history. It even extends to one of its parent strain G-13. Legend has it that this potent Indica was a secret project of the CIA or FBI. The story goes on to mention a technician smuggling a cut that later came to be cold G-13.
In all likelihood, this is nothing but a tall tale. Still, it may have influenced T.H. Seeds. After developing a hybrid by crossing G-13 and OG Kush, they called it MK Ultra – a reference to a special project of the CIA almost seven decades ago. Allegedly, it involved human experiements on mind control.
Boasting of large buds with a generous amount of THC, MK Ultra is one incredibly powerful hybrid. At one time or the other, its reputation is that of being the most potent cannabis in the universe. A winner of the 2003 and second placer of 2004 High Times Cannabis Cup Best Indica, it is best avoided by first-timers and beginners.

One thing to note is that this hybrid calls out for the munchies. So before starting the session, snacks should be up for grabs on the side. After all, once a massive couch-lock sets in, it is unlikely that anyone can muster enough willpower to get up and raid the kitchen.
