Black Nuken is a Canadian-bred strain that is especially popular in British Columbia. Combining the genetics of Black Ice and Duke Nukem, Black Nuken is a relative newcomer to the world of cannabis, but has already gained notoriety as a top-tier indica leaning hybrid that can produce a potent effect. This strain is widely-known for its aesthetic appeal, producing tight, round buds that are interlaced with orange hairs and coated in a heavy layer of resin. The flowers are often sage in colour, with so many purple hues that the dark green buds often appear blackish.
Black Nuken’s effects are strong and come on rapidly, with an uplifting, mildly energetic high. As far as indicas go, Black Nuken is the perfect wake-and-bake strain, and any daytime smoker will appreciate it for its long-lasting buzz and minimal burnout. Medical users will find Black Nuken effective because of its relaxation properties, with the potential to ease the effects of stress and insomnia without causing the user to become completely sedated. Black Nuken’s scent is extremely strong, with a delightful sweet floral undertone. The smoke isn’t too harsh, but has a heavy flavour reminiscent of spicy citrus, making it a popular choice for those who like to smoke rather than vape.
