MK Ultra is a heavy-hitting indica-dominant strain that is famous for its strong hypnotic effects. It is named after the after the notorious Project MK Ultra “mind-control” program conducted by the CIA between 1950-73.
As part of “Project MK Ultra,” the CIA conducted a series of experiments at a number of different institutions, where psychedelic drugs were administered to participants without their consent or knowledge. So the fact that this strain is named after this program should give you an idea of just how potent this particular strain is.
MK Ultra is an award-winning hybrid strain bred by T.H. Seeds. It is of little surprise that MK Ultra is so highly regarded when it is the offspring of two outstanding strains, namely OG Kush and the indica G-13. MK Ultra is a firm favorite among cannabis smokers and its quality has seen it pick up some notable awards in the past. This strain won Best Indica in the 2003 High Times Cannabis Cup and it came in second in the same category the following year.
MK Ultra is one of the most powerful indica strains out there, renowned for its strong cerebral high and hypnotic effects. This is definitely not a strain for a novice cannabis smoker to try out – this one is for the seasoned recreational or medicinal cannabis smoker to enjoy responsibly. MK Ultra weed packs a punch with an average THC level of approximately 18% but has been recorded as high as 22.8%. MK Ultra’s high THC content is offset by a more modest CBD level of between 0.10-0.20%.
If you are planning on trying out MK Ultra then it is probably best to do so at a time when you have no other plans. This strain is a notorious couch-locker which will leave you so relaxed that you won’t want (or be able to) do anything else but chill out and enjoy its uplifting effects. You can expect MK Ultra’s effects to come on fast, with those cerebral and hypnotics effects kicking in quickly. A deep feeling of relaxation will be followed by a feeling of euphoria which will taper off nicely to leave you uplifted and happy.
