Purple Nuken is a deluxe cross of the classic Vancouver-bred Nuken strain, and the therapeutic Purple Kush. This potent indica inherits a strong set of genetics, with a family tree that includes God Bud And Kish, a strain that was created as a cross between two varying cuts of Shishkaberry. These predecessors give Purple Nuken its’ iconic earthy, yet berry-like flavour, along with its’ undeniably strong high. On average, THC levels for this strain measure in at arond 21.5%, making it a great all-around strain that’ll relax the mind and uplift spirits, without leaving you completely debilitated. Many praise Purple Nuken for its’ relaxing high that soothes minor aches, pains and inflammation but also cherish it for its’ surprisingly euphoric and uplifting nature. Just like the name may suggest, Purple Nuken is known for its’ sage-coloured buds and marvelous deep purple hues. The cone-shaped buds of Purple Nuken are exceptionally dense and make host to a thick layer of resinous THC trichomes, these strong genetic traits shine through from its’ Nuken lineage, which also imparts an earthy and skunk-like essence onto the strain. The sweet undertones of Shishkaberry give Purple Nuken an added remarkable grape and berry-like aroma that contrasts well with the earthiness of Purple Kush and God Bud.
In need of an effective indica for relaxation and pain relief? The Purple Nuken is perhaps the right strain for you! Truly a one of a kind indica, Purple Nuken is crossbred between two popular strains for medical users of cannabis, the Vancouver Island-bred Nuken and the all time favourite, Purple Kush. An indica-dominant hybrid, this strain is as powerful as its predecessors with a THC content that typically reaches as high as 23%. And yet, while reminiscent of its parents, it stands out on its own for its sweet and unique flavour profile that pairs with a well-balanced, hard hitting euphoric high that leaves you feeling relaxed both mentally and physically.
Like most indicas, Purple Nuken is best-suited for body highs and ideal for medical users. The high starts off like a buzz that slowly creeps throughout the entire body, numbing users and alleviating chronic pains and/or aches. It is relaxing enough to help battle insomnia, and while it is not recommended for daytime use or activities that require physical movement, it is not too sedative or tranquilizing to keep you couch-locked. The high also induces a state of introspection and euphoria, so users will feel hazy but also happy as it elevates mood. This makes it a rather well-rounded indica, offering both a mental and physical sense of calmness that caters to a wide variety of medical users including those seeking to alleviate mood disorders such as chronic stress, depression and/or anxiety. It is particularly useful for physical ailments as well such as chronic pains, arthritis, muscle spasms, and migraines.
Purple Nuken’s THC content level typically maintains a rather high average range of 21%-23%. This is paired with an indica to sativa ratio of 80%:20%, so it is fairly strong and effective in regards to the body high. In comparison to its parents, Nuken, itself a cult favourite, is also 80%:20% indica to sativa with a staggering 25% THC content average, undoubtedly one of the reasons that make it so popular. The Vancouver-born Nuken is also a descendant of God Bud and Shiskaberry (also known as Kish) strains, with Shishkaberry being a runner up for Best Indica at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2001. So, it’s clear where Purple Nuken takes its phenomenal effects as it comes from a familial line of powerfully potent strains. For a heightened experience to take full advantage of its effects, the strain can be complemented with its parent concentrate, Nuken Shatter by Atomic Extracts.
Appearance & Aroma
Typical of indicas, Purple Nuken’s buds are dense with tightly packed flowers. Like its name, there are beautiful hues of purple decorating the otherwise sage green buds which are covered in a thick layer of milky trichomes. Also akin to other purples, Purple Nuken is dank but this is balanced by aromas that are sweet and fruity. Similar to its parent, Nuken, it is pungent and skunky, but like its other parent, Purple Kush, it carries notes of sweet grapes and berries. Some users even note a sweetness that can be compared to marshmallows, making this a delectable pre-bedtime treat!
