Big Bud wasn't named Big Bud for no reason. There's almost no other strain on the market that has a yield big enough to contend with Big Bud's. With this strain you win on quality and quantity, because unlike other high yielding strains, you don't have to compromise on THC content.
The feminized quality of this strain means that every seed you purchase will grow into a female, flowering marijuana plant. None of them will be male, seed-producing strains.
Even though it comes from the USA, it was the Dutch who did all of the fancy genetic manipulation to make this strain available for growers today. The lineage of Big Bud originates in well known and loved Skunk and Afghan parents, and also contains the genetics of Northern Lights. These are some of the best genetics you can find on a plant yielding as high as Big Bud.
Big Bud is generally quite easy to grow and simple to maintain. This strain does require a little bit longer of a flowering time of between 55 and 70 days but is well worth it for the enormous yield. This strain follows more of an indica growth pattern, being of only an average height. This strain is often used by commercial growers in the US because of the enormous yields it can produce, and it was even the winner of the Cannabis Cup partially due to its high yields. During cultivation, the smell of cannabis is quite subtle, but a gentle squeeze of the ripening tops will release a mouthwatering scent of sweet citrus, as well as leaving you with sticky fingers from their thick coating of resin glands!
You can expect an intensely strong indica experience from Big Bud, as it is a dominantly indica hybrid. This means the experience is largely physical, like a tingly body massage! The cerebral effect is quite gentle, meaning the mood is quite relaxed with Big Buds. It has quite a strong sedative effect which means that smoking Big Bud can make the user a little bit sleepy. Smooth, earthy and woody are the best ways to describe this smoke, with the smell being a little bit spicy. This is the kind of bud you can't really go wrong with, because it's fun and not too intense. The perfect strain for chilling out.
Medical properties of Big Bud
Indica means relaxing tension in the body, and Big Bud is full of it. That means its medicinal properties are great for those who have muscle soreness or chronic pain. The indica content is also extremely good at inducing drowsiness or sleepiness in those who are suffering from insomnia. Big Bud is a good de-stresser after a long day.
How to identify Big Bud
You can't mistake the enormously large Big Buds for any other buds. They can be bigger than your hand and the colour is a deep green. There are brown pistils all over the buds. This strain grows with only very few leaves on the plant which is another distinct characteristic of it. Small shiny trichomes are sprinkled all over the huge buds.

Lovers of Big Bud should have a look at the WSS Skunk strain. Similar genetics make them a similar smoking experience, although it doesn't produce quite the same yield as Big Bud. For those who chose Big Bud for its high indica content, you would probably like the AK-48 strain, another potent indica hybrid.
