Aurora Cannabis describes their MK Ultra strain as having a strong, earthy flavour with hints of citrus and spice.
Aurora MK Ultra’s terpenes combine myrcene, limonene and caryophyllene with cultivation origins being traced back to OG Kush and G-13. On their website, Aurora describes how this strain is grown in a state-of-the-art facility specifically designed to deliver consistent, superior quality product. This all sounds wonderful, but how does this cultivar measure up to similar products like Daily Special’s MK Ultra?
Ah MK Ultra, you’ve been a parent to many but what are you all about ? The product arrived in a small industry standard black plastic container with security top. Opening the lid revealed an amazing aroma that starts with lemon citrus before morphing into a piney sweet hoppy end. We were quite surprised at how great this bud smells.
Slowly pouring out the contents of the all black container we begin to see small nice nuggests which appear a bit leafy and fluffy. These buds have a great balance of red hairs to green leafage and finish solid with a thorough dusting of trichomes.
MK Ultra has pulled a quick one on us! Gone is the prominent refreshing lemon and in its place is a moderately harsh piney wood flavour which tapers off to be a “too soon departed” hoppy lemon zest. The flavour was a bit disappointing given its wonderful smell.
In all honesty, MK Ultra from Aurora Cannabis has left us a little disappointed after such a aromatically strong start. Plus, this strain is extremely popular so we were expecting more of a bang, however given the lower price point maybe we should not have had such high expectations. Overall it delivered an average mild mental high combined with an equally mild eyes-focused body buzz. However we still preferred this flower over both Aurora’s Blue Dream and their Ghost Train Haze.
