Sativa Dominant Hybrid
65% Sativa / 35% Indica
This strain gets its name from an alien-slaying videogame character. This Sativa dominant hybrid is a crossover between a female Chernobyl and a male Chemmando plant. Duke Nukem is mainly Sativa (65/35 Sativa/indica ratio) with a THC level of about 20%. With a flowering time of 9 – 11 weeks, this strain can thrive well indoors and outdoors. It is ideal for new growers as it is highly resistant to parasites and fungus attacks and has a medium to good yield. The buds of this potent strain are shaded with frosty orange and pink colors. A toke or two of this marijuana strain can give you a cerebral high that will uplift your mood within seconds and may induce energy and creativity, leaving you feeling giggly and happy until the effect lasts. Duke Nukem is an amazing daytime cure for stress, anxiety, headaches, fatigue, mood swings, and loss of appetite. The aroma is a pleasant blend of earthy sweetness and tropical punch with hints of skunk-like scent. The strain has a delicious mint and lavender flavor and leaves an orange aftertaste. It works great for artists who have trouble focusing.
How to Use Shatter
Like other marijuana extracts, shatter is usually vaporized or “dabbed” by consumers from a vape pen or specially equipped water pipe called a dab rig. With a potency ranging between 50-90 percent cannabinoids by weight, marijuana extracts like shatter are a fast, efficient, smoke-free way to consume cannabis.
To use shatter in a vape pen, you’ll want to be sure you have one that is specifically designed to be used with marijuana extracts like wax or shatter. These vapes have an atomizer (the vape’s heating element) that will rapidly heat, bringing your shatter to its vaporization point.
To vape shatter, you’ll add your shatter to your vape’s heating chamber, as you would similar marijuana extracts. As the atomizer heats your shatter, it will quickly melt and turn to vapor, which you will then inhale from the vape’s mouthpiece.
Dabbing is the more traditional way to use marijuana shatter. When dabbing, pieces of shatter are applied or “dabbed” onto a hot surface like hot titanium or ceramic nail, or quartz bucket. The shatter will rapidly vaporize upon contact with the hot surface. As you dab your shatter onto the hot surface, you will inhale the vapor through the dab rig’s water chamber and into your lungs.
