Mace Windu is named after a Jedi warrior, always calm and in control of himself. Like the Jedi, this strain can provide relief from various ailments without being overbearing. The strain appeared in the late 2000s, popping up in a few dispensaries across California and the West Coast.
It is a cross between Master Kush and Hindu Kush, which makes sense since its original name was "Master Hindu Kush." In 2012, Chubbs, an administrator on the Nuggetry website, renamed the strain, feeling that the original name did not do it justice. Because several strains lay claim to the name of Master Kush, the exact lineage can be hard to nail down, but nearly all of these strains include Hindu Kush and Skunk #1. Hindu Kush is a landrace Indica from the Hindu Kush mountain range.
Mace Windu produces a powerful body buzz, which can be effective at reducing pain. The buzz won't knock out most patients though those with low tolerance may find it a bit heavy. It can also relax the mind, wrapping it in fuzzy warmth that can ease stress and anxiety. Mace Windu may also be used to increase appetite and calm nausea.
Unfortunately, this strain is rather elusive, and very few have had the privilege to grow it.
