About Tropic Thunder
Tropic Thunder is a Sativa-dominant strain of cannabis. Although its original breeder and true lineage remain unknown today, it is known that Tropic Thunder hails from the Maui Wowie family of cannabis. Although the name of this strain would suggest a loud and proud profile, this bud is actually quite mellow all around, from its looks to its high.
The first thing to note about Tropic Thunder is that, yes, it likely was named after the movie you love to watch while stoned. However, this bud is more than just a pop culture reference. If you’re lucky enough to pick up some of this bud at a dispensary near you, you’re in for a treat. These pretty buds are often dense, small nuggets of lime or olive green, accented with bright orange hairs and purple undertones. The trichomes on this bud vary in color based on the phenotype, so expect either amber or milky-white crystals to cover these buds.
Despite this bud’s Sativa leaning, many users find that this strain can be used throughout the day. Some users tend to avoid Sativas in the evening because their tendency to induce hyperactivity is a turn off for those that wish to relax after a long day at work. Tropic Thunder, however, offers an elusive mental high coupled with a mellow and relaxing body high that can be managed quite easily without inducing anxiety and panic. This makes Tropic Thunder a great strain not only for beginner stoners but also for medical cannabis patients who suffer from chronic stress and chronic pain.
A mellow, floral scent that’s not too overpowering will erupt from your grinder as these nugs are broken down in preparation to be consumed. As the flower is smoked, a warm wave of flavors including grape Kool-Aid, flowers, and bitters will wash over your palate. As a happy, giggly sensation washes over your mind, those around you will likely ask why you have a dopey grin on your face. This mildly potent high is likely to relax your body mildly so as not to glue you to your chair but provide a moderate amount of pain relief. Although this strain can be used throughout the day at just about any time, most users find themselves hitting on Tropic Thunder in the mornings before a round of chores or in the evenings after a stressful day at work. This bud can be used to manage other medical ailments such as anxiety and stress, in addition to any symptoms of these ailments such as loss of appetite and nausea.
Despite its unknown origins and genetics, Tropic Thunder has become a favorite of many medical cannabis patients that tend to stay away from potent strains that can knock some users off their feet. The mellow high coupled with its pain relieving and mind-freeing effects make this a great choice to pick up at a dispensary near you.
