Scout Master, also known as “Master Scout,” is a Sativa dominant hybrid strain (75% sativa/25% indica) created through crossing the infamous Girl Scout Cookies X Master Kush strains. Like both of its parent strains, Scout Master packs a super potent high that is also medicinal in nature thanks to its high 1-2% average THC level. The high starts with a lifted effect that fills your cerebral state with pure happiness and ease, pushing out any negative or racing thoughts. As your mind settles into a state of focus and creativity, you’ll begin to feel a light physical relaxation wash over you, leaving you completely calm in the body without causing any sort of sedation in the slightest. With these effects and its high 21-23% average THC level, Scout Master is often said to be perfect for treating those suffering from conditions such as chronic stress or anxiety, depression, nausea, ADD or ADHD, appetite loss, and chronic pain. This bud has a sweet and spicy citrus woody flavor with hints of sour pine upon exhale. The aroma is of sour citrus and rich earth with a spicy overtone that builds the more you toke. Scout Master buds have dense grape-shaped olive green sticky nugs with dark amber hairs and a coating of frosty tiny white crystal trichomes.
What’s the best way to consume kief?
As previously stated, most people just end up sprinkling a little bit (or a lot) of kief on top of the weed in their pipes or joints; though this is a great method that adds a punch of potency and/or flavor to normal flowers, it doesn’t allow you to experience the kief on its own. Our recommended method for smoking kief is to use a screen on top of a glass pipe. You can purchase durable specialty titanium screens for smoking hash at well-stocked head shops, but you can even use a standard stainless steel pipe screen with no issues.
Gently heating the kief using indirect flame (held an inch or two above the kief) is the best way to release the essential oils and prevent burning it — good kief will begin to bubble and melt like you see with high-grade water hash, leaving behind very little residue and giving a full-flavored hit. On the flip side, poorly refined kief can taste harsh and woody due to the presence of remnant plant matter, so if you care about flavor, it’s important to try and get your kief as clean as possible before smoking. If you have access to any kind of microscope, look for flecks of green and trichome stalks in your kief — this will indicate that your kief isn’t totally pure and may need more refining.
