King Tut also known as Tutankhamon, is an exquisite sativa strain that was originally bred and conceived by the talented team from Pyramid Seeds. It wasn’t until the Canadian based breeders, Canuk Seeds came out with their own cut or variant of Tutankhamon that it became a flower that was truly worthy of royalty. They crossed together their own trendy feminized AK-47 with a unique Ruderalis strain with Colombian, Mexican and Thai ancestry to create a sativa flower that is almost as recognizable as the ancient Egyptian pharoah himself. King Tut is infamous and highly cherished for its notably high THC levels that range from 25% up to as high as 33%! Lab reports show normal CBD levels of less than 1%, which is normal for most cannabis strains that are not CBD specific. After much trial and error, and many failed cuts, Canuk Seeds was able to create a variant of King Tut that retained the beloved sour and skunky aroma of both its parent strains. The bag appeal of this sativa is nearly unbelievable, with its fluffy fluorescent buds and generous amounts of cake or THC crystals. Flavour and smell-wise, King Tut is described as fruity and earthy, with notes of tart citrus, sharp pine and a mellow, pungent skunky undertone.
As a sativa strain, much can be expected from King Tut by Canuk Seeds. What may surprise many about this sativa strain is its’ staggering THC levels. On the surface level, it’s clear to the naked eye that there are an abundance of THC trichomes blanketing the buds. But to be specific, the exact THC concentrations of Tutankhamon range from 25% to as high as 33% on average. Although these numbers are shockingly high, this upbeat sativa will not derail your day or keep you couch-locked. This is a good addition to your rotation if you’re seeking a strain to get your day started. Just like a fresh cup or coffee, or a wholesome, hearty breakfast, King Tut can provide you with that additional boost of energy that you need to face and conquer your daily tasks. The characteristic high of Tutankhamon is described as being upbeat, mentally uplifting and spiritually invigorating. It’s a great strain for getting errands done, social gatherings and is effective when dealing with stress, depression and anxiety.
