Big Bud Strain

Indica Dominant Hybrid 85% Indica / 15% Sativa

THC: 23% - 26%

Big Bud is an indica dominant hybrid (85% indica/15% sativa) strain that was the overall winner of the 1989 High Times Cannabis Cup. This strain was named for its enormously oversized buds and huge yields for growers, as well as its intensely high THC level ranging from 23-26%. Although the original Big Bud strain was a cross between the insanely popular Afghani X Skunk #1 strains, it has since then been rebred and bred with other strains to create different effects and potencies. Big Bud has long, dense spade shaped olive green nugs with rich purple undertones and fiery orange hairs spattered throughout the body. These nugs are covered in a fine layer of white crystal trichomes and visible sweet resin. Big Bud has an aroma of sweet and spicy earth and a taste of sweet and spicy earth with a grape aftertaste. Users describe the Big Bud high as a slowly creeping onset of an overpowering couch-lock, feeling of lethargic laziness, and sleepiness. This sedative strain offers an uplifted mood and feelings of euphoria as well, that slowly ease you into a deep and peaceful sleep. Due to these potent effects, Big Bud is an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as insomnia and chronic pain.

Great for Appitite and Good Night's Sleep


I love this strain. It works so much better for my insomnia than any prescription sleep aid. The munchies were pretty strong with this one, and I got "the giggles". The effect on my body was one of total relaxation, which I felt after about 20 minutes or so. I could literally feel my muscles relaxing, it was wonderful. I have tried many different strains, trying to get a handle on my chronic pain and insomnia, and Big Bud is at the top of my list!


Great strain that has quite a few uses in the medical field. Its great for insomnia, stress,anxiety, depression and many other mental disorders. The effect will be a very relaxing euphoric kind of feeling that can lead to couch lock ,and sleep in a hurry if you're not busy doing something . Its a very happy ,giggly ,and can make you laugh till you cry. You will notice that the strain will also bring out the creative side in most people .The buzz will last well over 4 hours but beware that after about 2 hours you will get the munchies and as mentioned before, if your not up and moving around then most likely you will be in a catatonic state and a deep sleep before you know it . All an all its a great strain to have on hand when some friends come by for dinner or a small get together during the week. It will be sure to have you in bed and asleep and revived for work in the morning. I know a lot of people that keep the strain on hand just for vegging out on the couch and watching movies with the family or as they drift off to sleep at night . A favorite stain for a lot of people that keep 2 different types of bud on hand . They have there sativa or sativa dominate hybrid for daytime activities. Then there indica or indica hybrid for afternoon activity and relaxation.


I really enjoy this strain everytime i pick some up!
