This indica strain is well known among cannabis cultivators because of its extremely high yields; hence the name, Big Bud. If you haven’t come across Big Bud directly, chances are you’ve had a strain with some Big Bud genetics in it.
So much more than big beautiful yields, Big Bud’s full body relaxation and earthy aroma will melt away stress and put you on cloud nine.

The Big Bud strain really burst onto the scene when it won the Indica section of the second High Times Cannabis Cup in 1989.
Smoking it gives a skunky flavor with tones of musky earth, while the aroma is best described as sweet and hash-like. This weed gives an intense, long-lasting body stone. Medically, Big Bud can help with muscle pain, nausea and sleep problems.
Big Bud is a bushy plant, growing to around 80 to 150 centimeters tall, with minimal leaf growth and large, heavy buds set on thickish stems. The buds are light green with a frosting of THC crystals and fine hairs with an orange hue. The THC level varies from eight to 15 percent, weaker than some skunk types but still powerful.
