This plant grows dense and sticky flowers that have a very pungent smell. MK Ultra produces tight buds with a generous layer of resin that makes these nuggets almost white and insanely sticky. Although the scent is a bit strange, many people find it extremely interesting and distinctive. MK Ultra comes with a strong diesel aroma, with hints of burnt plastic combined with notes of lemon. As for its taste, this indica-dominant hybrid has a long lasting earthy, piney yet sweet flavor with some musty undertones.
