Laughing Buddha Strain

Sativa Dominant Hybrid 75% Sativa / 25% Indica

THC: 18%

Laughing Buddha is a 2003 High Times Cannabis Cup award-winning sativa dominant strain, which is primarily a cross between Jamaican and Thai weed strains. Not only is it an award winning strain, but it is quite different from various other strains you may have already come across before. With THC content around 18%, it has a fruity and sweet smell with hints of spice. The smell is quite noticeable but is equally strong and fresh. However, you have to keep in mind that the nuggets are quite hard. The nuggets are dark green and brownish in color with a thick coating of crystals. As for the taste, it is potent and intense that will leave a roasted pepper aftertaste in your mouth. After smoking Laughing Buddha, you will come to realize it is something out of this world. A strong baked feeling will set in a matter of minutes even though you will not feel sleepy at all. You will be able to stick to whatever you are doing without getting distracted. You will notice an increase in focus and concentration that can help you be more productive at whatever you may be doing at that time. Additionally, it is equally beneficial for patients suffering from insomnia, depression, glaucoma, migraines and nausea.

Nice and tasty bud. Worked like a charm! Would definitely get again.


This is my top recommendation for herb! It’s how weed is supposed to make you feel! I can work with it, or I can play with it! Realize, it opens the gate to light hallucinations, so be careful. Also, I found myself laughing just because. The only problem is, I haven’t found any In about 18 months. When it comes back, I’ll be stocking up BIG TIME!


Never bothered to review before, but wow. What a strain. I love land races and that’s what this is. Reminds me of the high we got back in college when no one knew strains (90’s). Select (vape) brand is one of the cleanest and best. Tested 90%. Bought 2 grams of it - as I rarely find a strain that has any real effect anymore. Imo between this and Afghani for an indica. I’m set. Only took like 45 strains to get here lol. I’m a strain chaser vs heavy user. Might smoke 2-3 times a week. Sour D or rather sour apple (sour d x cindy99) is another. But Laughing Buddha is without question the best strain I’ve ever smoked and have a draw full of “almosts..”. I’ve not been knocked on my arse like that in years. But it’s functional. More or less. Socially at least , don’t think I’d drive.


Had this strain recently from RWU and it is fantastic, Energy, motivation, focus and supremely uplifted mood. Great for socializing or concentrating. I can go from a sour mood to getting a ton of productivity done in a great headspace. For me, this one is a keeper.


I love this strain it's engineered divinely I am also a breeder so I really appreciate thai and most east asian strains I can say I haven't met one I didn't Love I'm a landrace guy mostly but I liken this beautiful piece of work to amnesia haze but I'm very very partial to amnesia haze. However I believe laughing Buddha extremely effective against PTSD or any anxiety disorder for that matter. It's amazing I'm seeing a pattern in the strains that are perfect for me TTY his is def one of them.


I'd like to mention that I'm new to this research, and this is only my third strain I've had. Each month I try a new one, vaping only one sativa daily and the one indica nightly. Since my general disposition is somewhat irritable and lacks focus, I am looking for something that assists in relaxing me so I can be pleasant, and laugh instead of get angry, and something which can keep me focused. This Laughing Buddha was NOT for this girl... first of all, it does leave a bit of paranoia which once its understood that its the weed, I can relax about that... second, it leaves me almost couch-locked and stupified - i cannot have conversations cuz I can't remember what they asked or said... that's not helping focus.... lastly, it seems to magnify my sensitivities which is not a good thing when a five year old is tired and crying and whining and clingy and you're it. so, no relaxation or uplifting feeling with this. But to leave things on a nicer note: there was one nice thing about this strain -- it made me randy and I rather liked that. :)


Want some laughies? Want to feel that faintly electric crown-of-the-head buzz? Enlivening. Creative. Definitely a social strain. Last had this in the dam back in 2000, and have been seeking it ever since.


Dat buddha got me laughing like BUD HA!


Enjoyed this strain so much in Amsterdam at the coffee shop, Amnesia. Made us all laugh so very much...so memorably that the experience has etched itself into our memories for all time... sounds hyperbolic, but is truth. this strain is on my bucket list. m
