Mash Kush

T20/C4 Indica

THC: 24.4%

CBD: <1%

Plant Type: Indica-dominant

Genetic Similarity: Headband


Mash Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid variety, originating from a crossbreed with a variety belonging to the famous Kush dynasty. It was developed using novel technologies, as part of Canonic’s flagship variety breeding program. Mash Kush is considered a pioneering hybrid due to its high THC concentration, unique terpenes profile and a particularly high level of terpinolene, featuring an intensity full of flavors, strong intoxicating citrus aroma and promoting sensations of relaxation and inner peace.

Genetic uniqueness:

For the first time in Israel, Canonic has conducted  genomic mapping of publicly available cannabis genomes, collected worldwide, and compared the new varieties to the worldwide genetics. This information has been shared with patients and displayed as comparative genetic similarity. The genomic analysis we performed for Mash Kush indicates genetic similarity to the famous ‘Headband’ strain.

Unlike unknown varieties released around the world, Canonic’s varieties are developed by a leading scientific and technological team of the best geneticists. Our vast knowledge and state of the art development facilities provide patients with quality, precision, and genetic similarity to the original varieties.


Dominant Terpenes:

Terpinolene is a terpene which usually presents itself in small quantities in various cannabis varieties, it is dominant in lilacs, nutmeg and cumin seeds. It has a central role in defining the flavor, aroma as well as the effects of many cannabis varieties. Terpinolene-dominant varieties are relatively rare (only about 1 in 10 varieties are considered terpinolene-dominant) and these are known for their uplifting, calming and body relaxing effects. Unlike other terpenes, terpinolene’s aroma is multidimensional: Floral-herbaceous with undertones of pine and citrus. Its flavor and smell are often described as fresh. Studies indicate it has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and this is one of the reasons why terpinolene is added to soaps and detergents. Other studies indicate a strong antioxidant activity which can potentially protect the arteries against atherosclerosis.


Being spicy and pungent, b-Caryophyllene conveys a pleasant warmth. This terpene is found in various aromatic plants and spices, such as black pepper, basil, oregano, cloves, rosemary, and cinnamon, as well as in popular cannabis strains such as Girl Scout Cookies. b-Caryophyllene is the only terpene that acts within the body like a cannabinoid. It affects the cannabinoid system by binding to CB2 receptors throughout the body, and it likewise has an anti-inflammatory effect.

It is considered the most abundant terpene among the various cannabis strains, which is responsible for a sweet tropical flavor and an earthy aroma with a hint of the mask. Other than that, b-Myrcene is found in hops, thyme, bay leaves, parsley, and basil as well as in cardamom, lemon grass, mango, and Spanish lime fruits. b-Myrcene is considered as having sedative effects, and studies have demonstrated a reduction in stress and anxiety levels while elevating a sense of relaxation and calmness, energy levels, and mood. It likewise demonstrated pain relief and sleep induction potential together with strong antioxidant activity.



a-Humulene is a with an earthy-woody aroma. Its name is derived from the plant Hummulus Lupulus which belongs to the same botanic family as the cannabis plant, and it is likewise found in sage and ginseng roots.  a-Humulene constitutes part of the defense mechanism of the cannabis plant against various pests, due to its strong anti-microbial activity. Preliminary studies demonstrated anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, gastro-protective, and appetite suppression potential.


Ocimene is found in many herbs such as hops, mango, mint, parsley, bazil and lilacs. It has an intoxicating aroma, combining sweet-fruity, citrusy and earthy scents, and a sweet-herbaceous flavor with citrusy-woody undertones and a pleasant uplifting effect. Ocimene is considered as part of the defense mechanism of plants against harmful pests and it has been ascribed anti-bacterial properties. Preliminary research indicates an anti-inflammatory potential together with the potential ability to inhibit enzymes involved in the development of diabetes and hypertension.


Limonene is the most abundant terpene in nature. It is the main constituent in citrus peel essential oil (orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, and mandarins) having a strong citrus-lemon aroma. According to research from 2018, not only THC but also certain terpenes contribute to the “high” and mood elevation effects that characterize various cannabis strains – due to the known ‘entourage effect’, and limonene is the terpene that is mostly associated with mood elevation and euphoria. This is the reason why limonene and other citrus scents are used in aromatherapy and the perfume industry for these purposes.  In one study, inhalation of limonene vapor increased serotonin and dopamine levels in key regions of the brain that are associated with anxiety, depression, and OCD. In addition, preliminary clinical studies have shown that limonene has the potential to dissolve gallstones, relieve heartburn due to its gastric-acid neutralizing effect and improve peristalsis. It has likewise demonstrated a partial benefice effect as part of the treatment of certain types of cancers.

Farnesene in nature exists in green apple skins (it gives apples their sweet-fruity aroma), turmeric, hops, chamomile, ginger, mint and bazil, and is known for its unique green apple aroma. Fresh apples that change their color to brown indicate the oxidation of Farnesene. In the cannabis varieties it is found in, farnesene is responsible for a sweet-fruity aroma and for its calming, sleep promoting effects. Preliminary studies ascribe Farnesene an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-anxiety and a relaxing potential, that may help to relax muscles and induce a good sleep.  Laboratory studies have shown a neuron protective potential in an Alzheimer’s disease model.
