Nuken Cannabis Strain
Nuken is like a dangerously potent yet innocently sweet strain. Unlike most weed with more or less the same potency, this tough pot tastes more like candy, giving users an interestingly delicious high. On top of that, the strain has a solid lineage behind it that only strengthen its credibility.
Nuken’s history originates in Canada where the infamous Cash Crop Ken crossed Shishkaberry and the award-winning strain God Bud.
The Nuken strain is a relatively classic hybrid that is now gaining popularity throughout the Pacific Northwest and in the states of Oregon and Washington. This Indica-dominant variety is famous for the interesting contrast of its strong yet delicious high.
Users seem to have differing opinions with regards to Nuken’s overall potency. This is mostly due to the fact there has been some noticeable increase in the strain’s THC levels as more tests are conducted. Today, the strain’s THC concentration is believed to be around 13% to 25%. However, some sources would argue that its THC levels can reach as high as 30%.
Either way, the strain is currently regarded as a highly potent variety that is certainly not for the faint-hearted. Nuken is Indica-dominant with a concentration ratio of 80:20 and its high is known to be quick and long-lasting.
The onset starts with a cerebral stimulation that leads users into an uplifting euphoria and a happy state of mind. This head buzz often leaves users a little bit too giggly which makes it a good strain choice for social activities. There are also a few reports of the strain sending users into a deep introspection that has the tendency of feeling a bit spacey.
Once you’ve gotten past her initial introduction, Nuken is actually a joy to smoke. Her high is intense and long-lasting, making it great for a night at home with friends or a companion to take along on an evening adventure. While you’ll certainly feel relaxed and uplifted, this strain doesn’t make users feel overly sedated in any way. Instead, tingles from head to toe will envelop you and you’ll notice a tendency to be a bit spaced out. Whether you put on your favourite new Netflix show or you simply want to grab a bite to eat out on the town, Nuken is the perfect pairing.
Nonetheless, the strain’s physical high is characterized as a relaxing feeling that is not entirely sedative but may cause users to feel sleepy and find themselves locked on the couch especially in higher doses. This strong Indica effect makes Nuken an ideal evening strain.
Nuken’s smell boasts of sweet marshmallows with a distinct hint of pungent skunk and earthy undertones, making it one of the tastiest highly potent strains available.
While Nuken looks a bit rugged, it has the delicate taste of a freshly baked marshmallow pie with some interesting notes of pine and a skunky tinge upon exhale. Its flavors have always been one of its most sought-after traits.
Nuken’s hybrid effects make the strain a well-rounded medicinal alternative for various health conditions. For one, its uplifting cerebral high can be an effective stress reliever for users who need a quick break from a stressful day at work. At the same time, the blissful nature of its mental stimulation can aid patients who are dealing with depression.
Moreover, Nuken’s relaxing body buzz can effectively alleviate pain caused by certain illnesses including muscle spasms. The sedative properties of Nuken, on the other hand, may stimulate sleep which makes it a perfect strain choice for insomniacs. Her ability to chase away stress and depression is like nothing else around, and those who struggle with bodily pain including headaches, cramps, or muscle issues will find sweet relief here. If you do smoke enough of this bud, especially if you find a more powerful version, you’ll likely be able to help with insomnia as well. The munchies can get a little intense with this gal too, so smoke a bit to ease up on any nausea and enjoy a good meal.
