This breeding has produced a very potent hybrid strain. MK Ultra has a powerful, unusual odor, which many users compare to burnt plastic and an odd mixture of diesel lemon. However, the flavor of MK Ultra is less unusual, comprised of classic earthy tastes with fresh pine notes.
The name, MK Ultra, derives from the mental manipulation experiments conducted by the CIA during the 1950’s. The reason these experiments provided inspiration for this cannabis strain is no mystery – MK Ultra is a powerful plant, renowned for being one of the heaviest indica hybrids on the shelves of your local dispensary.
