Tutankhamon Strain

It should not come as a surprise that Pyramid Seeds would name one of its strains Tutankhamon.

After all, the name of the breeder is suggestive of the Pyramids of Giza.

Back in ancient times, these pyramids played a role during the reign of the pharaohs.

It so happens that the most famous that we know of is King Tut.

Since we are talking about King Tut, then it also follows that many of us remember the curse.

Already, there are countless movies made based on the curse of the dead pharaoh in the past.

So, in relation to the strain, is there something sinister we should be aware of or concerned with?

Like the Pharaoh, Tutankhamon strain is also called Tutankhamun, Tutankhamen, or King Tut.

Adding to the seeming notoriety of Tutankhamon is that it is an offspring of AK-47.

But names are only names, and in the case of AK-47, there is nothing deadly about it.

In fact, AK-47 is one that delivers a gentle mental and physical high.

On the other hand, it seems that the curse of King Tut lives on with the cannabis strain. Featuring a whopping 29% THC, this strain is not for beginners.

Such a high THC means that its insane potency can overwhelm users who are not careful.

Tutankhamon Strain Effects

Did we mention that Tutankhamon has one of the highest THC among all strains?

Being Sativa-dominant, we can expect its effects to be more on the cerebral side.

To that end, it delivers an intense hit that, in an instant, transforms moods to the positive. In other words, users feel not only happy but also euphoric.

As the insane waves of mental high reach its peak, the mind remains clear. In fact, for many, the cerebral head high also sparks the continues flow of ideas in the mind. Also, complementing the head high is a boost in energy.

As mentioned, this strain may be too powerful for beginners or novice users. Even experienced marijuana users should never use too much. Doing so, its psychoactive effects may cause unwanted side effects (more on this to follow).

Tutankhamon Strain Fragrance

The tomb of the pharaoh must have a dank and earthy smell. Our Tutankhamon has some of that, aside from the fact that it is pungent and skunky as well. But it does have a floral scent that not only tones it a notch but also to enhance the smell.

Tutankhamon Strain Flavors

Carrying over to its taste, the skunky smell is a little toned down. Accompanied by a sweet and fruity taste blended with citrusy lemon, it does have an agreeable taste.

Tutankhamon is an extremely potent strain that can help clear your mind and give you an energy boost at the same time. Find seeds with similar traits in our shop.

Adverse Reactions

We did say that the tomb of King Tut comes with a curse. Well, using Tutankhamon also comes with its adverse reactions. One of them is pretty much guaranteed – dry mouth and eyes.

As mentioned too, the psychoactive properties of this strain may be too much. Once the cerebral high is too much to handle, it may cause some users to feel a little more paranoid and anxious. On this, the choice is either to tone down on its use or use another strain instead.

Also, typical of intense Sativa highs, some users may also feel a little dizzy at its onset. In this case, take it easy and it should be gone in minutes.


Its ability to uplift moods and induce happiness is also a trait that benefits medical cannabis users. For instance, not only is this useful for stress relief, but this is especially helpful to those with depression. Even a few other patients with mental health disorders such as PTSD are likely to find Tutankhamon useful.

To a certain degree, this strain can also aid in mild pain relief. It is probably a result of the mind focusing on anything else but the physical pain manifesting.

One thing too about the cerebral head high of Tutankhamon is that it allows for a clear mind. At the same time, some users feel more focused. In this manner, it may prove to be beneficial to those with ADD/ADHD.

Growing Tutankhamon Strain

From Pyramid Seeds, these strains grow into compact plants with a lot of branches for a good reason. It allows for holding the weight of the massive yield. It should thrive well in both outdoor and indoor environments, but we do recommend indoor using hydroponics. Not only is it easier to care for the plant in a controlled habitat, but the flowering time can be shortened too, especially when the Sea of Green (SOG) technique is used.

Tutankhamon is also a fairly easy plant to grow. One thing to watch out for is fungal diseases. Due to the tightly clustered branches and leaves, make sure that the humidity level is not too high. In this way, the fungus does not have the right environment for them to thrive.

Flowering Time


As the plant matures in as early as 8 weeks, growers must make sure their eyes do not pop out of their sockets as they harvest around 19 to 21 ounces per square meter.


The only curse in Tutankhamon is failing to grow one and realize that each plant can give more than 50 ounces. By any measure, that is a massive yield that is expected as September transitions to October.
