Those who love mystery strains will have a field day with Tropicali, a relatively new bud that comes from unknown sources. Also called Tropicali Kush, it’s unclear what her genetic lineage entails, making her slight sativa-dominated profile all the more secretive. However, this bud is easy to find in Northern California dispensaries, so there’s only so many breeders she could’ve come from right?
A great strain for most users, Tropicali ranges from 15% to 19% THC potency. Nugs are very hairy and oversized, featuring relatively thick trichome coverage and a layer of sticky resin that’s surprising given how mellow people claim her to be. As her name describes, this strain is full of sweet tropical flavor that’s accented by bright berry notes. Both her taste and smell are similar, and as she’s usually an uplifting bud, Tropicali could make an excellent pairing with your favorite breakfast.
If you can imagine what the most ideal daytime strain would be like, Tropicali likely comes pretty darn close. Most users describe their high as one that’s full of energy but not so much that they’re bouncing off the walls. Instead, they enjoy a mixture of motivation and relaxation that’s enough to get things done without feeling hyper. Social tendencies are often heightened as well, so this strain could be a great choice for your next party or dinner event. Keep in mind that while she is sativa-dominant by nature, Tropicali may also include some sedating effects so you’ll want to experiment with her to see how you react.
Known for being great in therapeutic settings, this strain is loved by those who deal with chronic pain on a regular basis. Anything from joint issues to cramps to muscle spasms may very well be soothed after a few tokes, allowing you to actually get on with your day. Mental concerns including depression and anxiety could also be quelled by Tropicali, although everyone reacts a bit differently based on their tolerance. Some smokers note that this bud induces the munchies as well, so issues of a loss of appetite or nausea just might vanish.
We’d love to tell home growers all about how to care for this majestic plant, but sadly enough, information is hard to come by. It’s highly unlikely that you’d be able to obtain seeds or clones, and if you do, cultivation details are speculative at best. Some believe that Tropicali thrives in dry and sunny climates, which makes sense due to her regional availability, but not much else is known beyond that.
Anyone who lives in Northern California has likely tried this bud already, but if you haven’t, make sure to put her on your shopping list. Whether you’re attracted to her delicious flavors or her effects are the most appealing part about her, Tropicali will surely find a way into your heart. As with all secretive strains, it’s advised that you stock up as much as you can because no one knows how long she’ll be around.
