Big Bud is an Indica dominant strain (85% Indica, 15% Sativa) with a very fitting name and reputation. Producing large, hulking buds with phenomenal yields, this strain earned its place in the pantheon of marijuana strains taking 1st Place in the “Mostly Indica” division at the first High Times Cannabis Cup competition in 1989. Big Bud is a classic Indica strain that has been crossed with many strains over the years because of its favorable qualities. Prized for its fast-acting, powerful high, it boasts THC levels up to 20% with excellent yields.
The original strain was developed in the USA in the early 1980’s and produced an Afghani strain with Skunk genetics. Growers love it for its high yields and thick dense buds. However, efforts need to be taken to support the lower branches that can collapse under the weight of the enormous compact round buds.
The taste is sweet with a strong flavor of grapes and the smell has some sweet undertones with an occasional waft of sour. This unique strain is good for patients trying to relax and relieve body pain and is good for sleep in higher doses.
B-52 is an Indica dominant skunk hybrid which is a cross between Big Bud and Skunk #1. Although it is Indica dominant, it also contains a decent amount of Sativa genetics. As with other Skunks, B-52 has a skunky aroma while the flavor is sweetish with notes of exotic spice. Users report experiencing a mellow high with remarkable Sativa effects for a strain that leans towards the Indica end of the spectrum. Often considered to be a top variety for commercial skunk growers, the plants grow tall with mid-green leaves and robust branches bearing a profusion of large heavy buds, much like its Big Bud parent. Its subtle Sativa flavor and its energetic, joyful high makes this strain a favorite with seasoned and novice smokers alike.
Arctic Sun is a brilliant cross of two of the most potent strains available. A marriage of old & new world genetics, this 60/40 Sativa-Indica hybrid is the cross-section of White Widow and Skunk #1. Mostly Sativa with long, dense and crystal laden buds, this amazing strain is high yielding and extremely potent. The high is both physical and cerebral in nature providing both an enjoyable mental ride as well as a soothing body sensation. With a pungent smell reminiscent of its parent, Skunk #1 and smooth taste ideal for medical applications, this strain is a fan favorite. Hard hitting, even experienced users need respect its power.
Amsterdam Gold is an Indica variety developed in California in the seventies and has been successfully grown outdoors in Holland since 1980. This pure Indica strain smokes soft with a citrus like aroma and flavor. The resulting high is very clean and clear, helping the patient’s body and mind all at once. This is a very potent strain with THC levels ranging between 16-18% and has a tendency to demonstrate its couch lock abilities if you smoke too much at once.
This strain is easy to grow and produces long compact resinous buds and is one of the best green outdoor varieties. When growing this strain outdoors, allow about six weeks to pass in the flowering cycle before harvesting.
Afghani is a pure variety, never hybridized and was imported from Afghanistan near the Pakistan border and grown in Holland. This pure Indica strain has very broad leaves with high quality dense buds with lots of resin making it a great strain for making hash. Some plants turn purple at harvest time. Rather high flower to leaf ratio without many pesky stems. Aroma and flavor are heavy, almost medicinal and this strain has a creeping effect. Users report a very strong, physical, practically narcotic high with serious sedation and deep relaxation leading to munchies and couch-lock.
