Mike Tyson, also known simply as “Tyson,” is a 100% pure Indica hybrid strain that is said to be an OG Kush phenotype, although this has never been confirmed. Named for the one and only Mike Tyson, you can definitely expect a heavy hitter here that’s sure to knock you flat out.
Based on the strong pungent and gas or diesel aroma and the punch of the relaxing and uplifting high, many speculate that Mike Tyson is a cross between OG Kush or another member of the OG family of strains. The THC concentration of this stellar indica is known for reaching levels as high as 29% and on average can be found around 25%. The high is described as a creeper, with effects fully settling in around the 15 minutes to the 30-minute mark, but don’t be fooled – once they kick in, the intoxicating effects of Mike Tyson will hit you like a truck!
Users are first overcome with an uplifting sense of euphoria and a spacey high that’s great for enjoying with friends, before the powerful body high kicks in, relaxing the joints and easing any tension or pain. Many report a relaxing couch-lock feeling that transitions into a sedating, sleepy buzz by the comedown that is great for users dealing with insomnia or fatigue.
Asides from the name itself or the potency, Mike Tyson is also known for its’ amazing bag appeal – from its’ gigantic, chunky, crystal-coated buds, to its’ one-two punch of aroma and flavour, this indica has it all. The aroma of Mike Tyson is PURE gas! This exotic indica exhibits all the lovely characteristics of an OG family member with its’ earthy undertones with slight notes of citrus and a fresh floral essence but sets itself apart with an intoxicating gas and diesel nose. The pungent notes of fuel will quickly encapsulate or permeate a room within a matter of seconds!
