Big Bud Strain Review

Big Bud is an A-class strain that deserves a special place on the shelves of all marijuana enthusiasts. This plant can be considered one of the stars of the cannabis world. This Big Bud strain review will tell you everything you need to know about it.

Obviously, a strain with the name Big Bud simply cannot have small nugs. True to the name, Big Bud's yields are enormous. That is why the strain is so popular among growers. Big Buds is a classic award-winning herb.

Initially, the strain was developed in the U.S. However, in the 1980s, the production of the strain was mainly relocated to the Netherlands. The War on Drugs was a massive obstacle for the whole industry. And so, this plant was grown and improved in a country that later gave us such cannabis stars as Dutch Treat and Amnesia.

The initial Big Bud was an Afganica mixed with some Kush genes. The cultivation of the strain was so fast that the plant quickly became a commercial favorite. In Holland, this initial Big Bud gave life to several high-quality strains. The final Big Bud genotype developed by Sensi Seeds combines the vigor of the original plant with the improved flavor and potency. Together, all recent improvements create a fast-flowering strain with exceptional properties.

The flowering period of this strain is only 58 days. The plant should be cultivated indoors. The herb itself is not very big which is surprising considering the size of its buds. The strain requires a fair amount of attention as it can triple in size if the light cycle is incorrect. In optimum conditions, this strain can produce about 550 grams of buds per plant.

Appearance and Flavor

As we have mentioned before, the Big Bud strain is perfectly true to its name. The nugs are big and extremely rich with trichomes. The dense flowers can give you the ideal high. Usually, these giants have a green coloring with pale orange hues of the hairs. If you grow the plant yourself, make sure that the stems are thick enough because the size of the buds can be a little too much for them to hold.

The sweet hash aroma of Big Bud is generally revealed while grinding the herbs. Just as the strain's sweet scent, its taste is also very pleasant. The flavor is an unusual mix of earthy, sweet, and spicy notes. You will definitely spend some time trying to uncover all sides and details of the strain's flavor.
