MK Ultra Strain Review (Re-Up Cannabis)

mk ultra strain review

For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some  MK Ultra made by  Re-Up Cannabis  (Zenabis). Before trying out their  Shishkaberry, I wasn’t expecting too much since the price point was so low, but I was impressed with it just like I was impressed with this MK Ultra.

Look at that; it’s possible to sell high-quality weed at low prices! It’s an Indica-dominant cultivar with  THC levels that vary between 10-16%  (this specific batch had  14% THC  and an inconsiderable amount of CBD).

The cultivar is named after CIA experiments conducted during the 1950s code-named MK Ultra, in which the CIA experimented on humans to develop drugs to aid with interrogation (which is pretty mind-blowing in itself!).

Lineage: MK Ultra was originally created by crossing an OG Kush female from Los Angeles’ JoshD Farms with a G13 male from Barney’s Farm in Amsterdam.

Terpene Profile: The dominant terpenes on MK Ultra are: terpinolene, myrcene, and limonene.

Packaging Details: Packaged on 05/05/2020 and tested/reviewed on 06/16/2020, exactly 42 days later. Lot# 1000920

Pricing Details: Purchased 15 grams for $66.20 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ($4.41/gram)

Appearance: 2.5/5

The bag appeal was there, and the weed looked all right, but there was a different issue here; this MK Ultra came in at 70% RH, way too much moisture. I had to dry it out and bring it back down to 55% RH. When it came to visuals, this weed had its moments; not the best trimming job, though.

The fact that there were no popcorn nugs was a huge plus, especially since I bought 15 grams and not just 3.5. The buds were of a light green shade with a touch of purple on certain leaves. A thin coat of trichomes covered the flower, mixed in with bright orange, almost reddish pistils all over the buds.

Aroma: 3.5/5

I’m a huge fan of the scents that the terpinolene terpene emits; it’s that sour apple type of smell, and I find it addictive; this is what this MK Ultra gave me. It’s a sweet and sour aroma, a mix of herbs, mint, apples, and lemon, and very pleasant overall.

Flavor: 2.5/5

The flavor on this MK Ultra was much more subtle. You mostly get a herbal taste; I also felt a hint of lemon/hint on the exhale, a little sweetness stayed on the palate. The smoke was smooth; this aspect was missing something for me.

Effects: 2.5/5

The effects that I got from this MK Ultra were relatively light, and I used it as a daytime strain, which worked out for me. However, if you’re into the green that knocks you down, gets your thoughts way louder, and makes you re-evaluate your life, this one won’t work out for you.

The effects barely lasted an hour, and there was no downer after; it kinda just disappeared.

Overall: 2.5/5

Similar to Jean-Guy (which is $5.29/gram), the biggest win with this MK Ultra is the dollar value; $ 4.41 is quite cheap, especially for this quality. I would suggest this to beginners as the THC percentage is quite low on this, the price point is low, and you still get some pleasant scents, big nugs, and decent effects.

You can try Tremblant Kush Strain by Laurentian Organic for higher THC percentage and strong effects.

Everyday consumers may not like it because of the light effects, but as I said before, I wouldn’t disregard it completely; you may enjoy it as some daytime weed. This whole experience wasn’t as good as their Shishkaberry, but Re-Up did an all-right job with this MK Ultra.

If you’ve tried some out, let me know what you think in the comments!
