MEDICAL USES –
Medically, Nuken can help reduce stress, anxiety and depression. She also has hypnotic and sedating properties which can help patients get a deep and restful night’s sleep.
GROW INFO –
This low maintenance easy to grow strain does well both indoors and out, thriving in dry and sunny conditions. Nuken plants grow medium-height with strong side branching, producing large resinous buds, round and dense with olive green hues. She is fast-flowering, taking only seven to eight weeks indoors and is ready for harvest from late September to mid-October when grown outdoors in the Northern Hemisphere. For potentially increased yields, growers are recommended using either SOG or SCROG cultivation methods. Additionally, growers will need to keep an eye on humidity levels as Nuken plants are quite prone to molds and powdery mildew.

For those interested in obtaining Nuken genetics, this strain is only available in clone form and is still in circulation around Vancouver Island, BC.
