Moonwalker Kush is a rather intense strain. It boasts THC levels that constantly go beyond the 20% range, averaging between 25% and 28%. Thus, a little also goes a long way.
Seasoned users will find that it is an excellent pick-me-up on the dreary days. It energizes the mind and invigorates the body so one can finish tasks quickly and head out to a night out with friends. The heaviness usually takes a while to settle, but users should find a comfortable spot before it takes over.
It hails from two Indica-leaning strains, Triple OG and Tahoe Alien. Both are renowned for its heavy-hitting body effects. However, the latter induces a soaring head high with a cosmic quality as it entices the senses.
Using it outside of one’s personal tolerance levels could lead to a feeling of dizziness, anxiety, and paranoia – especially among beginners who have not built up a tolerance against the psychoactive compounds.

Moonwalker Kush is a go-to strain among the chronically stressed. It induces an innate sense of happiness that turns the day around at the last minute, reducing the accumulated negativity. At the same time, it refreshes the mind, so users need not go to bed already dreading the next day.
Casual users may find that it is an excellent choice to toke with friends. Its uplifting euphoria encourages an upbeat disposition that increases sociability. It encourages interesting conversations and giggles along with it. Moreover, the stimulation wakes the appetite.
After an hour or two, a soothing sensation ebbs down from the temples. It releases tension from the muscles, kneading it like a masseuse. In its place, there is a physical calm that welcomes relaxation. Although intense, it is rare for it to induce a drowsiness right away. Instead, it bides its time; allowing users to adjust to the heaviness as it settles in the limbs.
With that said, Moonwalker Kush is best used as a companion to a night of relaxation or a chill hangout with friends. Its comedown is potentially sedating so it is best to start with low dosages and moderate use with each hour.
