Big Bud is an older, indica-dominant commercial strain that is still providing very big harvests to many growers throughout the world. The emphasis is not only on the size of its harvest or its ease of cultivation -- it is also a high-quality strain for which customers keep on coming back time and again.
Towards the end of flowering it will be necessary to support the branches in some way as the weight of the maturing buds can easily snap them. The plants themselves are only of medium size, 80 - 110 cm. on average, and produce 500 - 600 gr/m2 of fat buds in just 8 - 9 weeks of flowering indoors. It can also thrive outdoors and also in a greenhouse although good ventilation is recommended in the latter to avoid the risk of bud rot. Northern hemisphere harvests are ready during October.
Its flavour is Skunk-like with sweet and earthy notes. Big Bud has a relaxing and long-lasting effect.
Therapeutically recommended for treating insomnia and muscle spasms.
