Big Bud (Sensi Seeds)
Big Bud is an ideal strain for commercial cultivation if your growing experience is lacking and your customers are not overly demanding. It is easy-to-grow and hardy, can tolerate heat, overfeeding and beginner's mistakes. The flower clusters get fat already very early in flower and eventually yield a lot. However, you must have some experience to get the amazing results that the strains is famous for. The buds are resinous and very hard. The branches - especially the lower ones - tend to bend and even snap under their weight. Thus support is a must. The most common of the two phenos is short and sturdy, the other - more stretched. Big Bud is great for the 'sea-of-green' setups because the side growth is moderate. However, you can LST the plants to get several big colas instead of just one. Despite the great size and even greater density of the buds the mold is seldom an issue but many growers report difficulties with cloning.
Generally not very strong, nor long-lasting, sometimes even weak though occasionally you'll get a powerful pheno. Most users report relaxation, sedation, tiredness and sleepiness but also great medical benefits such as appetite stimulation, analgesic and antiemitic effects.
A night time type of weed, lazy, not social. Users with tolerance can also smoke Big Bud in the morning and early afternoon because it's not that strong to leave them unfunctional and the comedown is easy. The same applies if the plant is cut down early. When fully mature, the buds produce the distinct indica effect.
It can be top-notch or generic or even downright unpleasant - depending on the pheno.

Big Bud has long been famous as a cannabis strain with jaw-dropping yields. Less well-known is the fact that her superior Indica pedigree has been carefully refined and steadily improved over many years. Big Bud’s early development occurred in the USA before the strain was brought to Holland in the Eighties in search of political asylum. When the War on Drugs intensified, pioneering US breeders feared losing irreplaceable ganja strains which embodied years of work, study and devotion. Many unique and cherished genotypes were brought to the Netherlands to ensure they would not be lost forever.
The first Big Bud was a sturdy Afghanica infused with Skunk genes — a hybrid possessing unusual vigour and unexpected, record-breaking production. Distributed in clone form, Big Bud quickly became a popular commercial strain. When those original clones made it to Holland, they gave rise to several stable seed-strains, including a back-cross with Skunk #1 and a very popular hybrid of 75%BB-25%NL#1. The current, award-winning incarnation of Big Bud was made possible by two important developments. Firstly, intensive research allowed Sensi to identify the genotype and precise geographical origin of the Afghani cultivar behind the first Big Bud. Secondly, the expansion of the gene-stock in the early Nineties gave Sensi breeders access to a prime example of that very strain.
With these two breakthroughs, we were able to take Big Bud back to her roots. Sensi’s final, back-crossed hybrid recaptures the vigour of the original clone and benefits further from sweet, fruity flavours and a great improvement in potency. Naturally, enormous production remains the central feature of the Big Bud seed-strain. Plants requiring the full flowering time will grow a little taller and are usually the heaviest-yielding examples. Big Bud’s stems are thick and sturdy, yet the masses of giant, sweet, sparkling buds they produce can grow heavy enough to bend and even snap them, so the most promising branches should be supported with string or tensioned wire.
