Te Puke Thunder

Te Puke Thunder is a well known Cannabis strain hailing from the volcanic regions of New Zealand. It seems as though the stuff of lore such as the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings aren’t the only things mystical around here.  Te Puke Thunder is as amazing as the legends say.

Te Puke Thunder originated in Te Puke, Bay of Plenty[1] on the coast of New Zealand‘sNorth Island in the early 1970s. At the time it was said to be the leading marijuana strain in terms of strength and taste.

The Hunt for Te Puke Thunder

It was the first popular polyploid in New Zealand meaning it had considerably larger buds and stronger potency than normal cannabis strains in NZ. The Polypoid means the plant has 3 or more chromosomes per cell as opposed to just 1 or 2 from common varieties.

As a result of  the ideal growing conditions in Te Puke Bay, the plant succeeded in becoming a well renowned marijuana strain globally and has been notably displayed in numerous Amsterdam Coffee Shops.

Te Puke Thunder is not for light weights. It is often weighed up against the Mr. Nice’s masterpiece “White Widow” in terms of high, potency, duration of effect, etc..
