Nose: AAAA – intense pungent smell, slightly flowery and sweet
Taste: AAAA – earthy with a sweeter exhale
Burn: AAAA+ – Smooth burning with a white ash. Appears well flushed.
Visual: AAAA – Small to large dense buds that are trimmed and covered in lots of curly, orange pistils. Stem snaps, product is dried properly.
Info: Duke Nukem is a sativa dominant hybrid that is a cross between Chemmando and Chernobyl. Perhaps its parents inspired the name of ‘Duke Nukem’ who is a video game character that spends his time hunting alien invaders. The high is uplifting and creative due to its sativa dominant side. Good for stress and depression. Careful not to confuse this strain with Nuken, which is a different indica dominant hybrid.
Sample submitted: “Duke Nukem” dried cannabis flowers.
Visual Inspection: Free from visible contamination and foreign matter.
Activated vs non-activated: activated cannabinoids are non-acidic (neutral) and are the form utilized by the human brain/ body. Activation occurs via heating (smoking, vaporizing, cooking). Cannabinoids in the natural plant are acidic (non-activated) and need to be converted to their neutral form in order to be utilized by the human body. Therefore one would expect fresh cannabis buds to contain mainly non-activated cannabinoids. Processed materials (baked goods, heated extracts) should be higher in the activated forms.
Absent Cannabinoids: if a cannabinoid or terpene is blank, it is not necessarily absent but below the limit of detection by the detector (usually less than 0.01%).
Cannabis Potency Summary Table:
Three tests of each sample were analysed and summarised below:
% by weight
THC-Acid (not activated)
*THC total (THC-Acid+THC)
CBD-Acid (not activated)
*CBD total (CBD-Acid+CBD)
CBG-Acid (not activated)
*CBG total (CBG-Acid+CBG)
Activated Cannabinoid Total:
•when reporting totals, acidic cannabinoids are multiplied by 0.877 to account for loss of mass from decarboxylation upon heating (activating)
