Indica 75 / Sativa 25
Origins: God Bud x Hawaiian Purple Indica
Flowering: 55-70 Days
Harvest: mid October
The memorably-named God Bud rose from underground fame in Canada’s medical pot community to international acclaim when BC Bud Depot debuted her as a commercial strain in 2004. Her heavy yields and strong effect have made BC God Bud an indica worthy of praise.
BC God Bud is short, squat and dense, with plenty of silvery resin. While she does well outside in California, yielding up to 3 pounds per plant, she does not finish well as far north as British Columbia and is better for indoor cultivation in colder climates. Although BC God Bud can be hard on beginners, attentive growers will find this to be a hardy, pest resistant plant with leathery leaves and an appetite for nutrients. These plants require 8-10 weeks of flowering time to reach maturity. As the plants ripen, their dark greens turn to shades of purple, and a heady, almost high-inducing smell begins to fill the grow room, requiring some odor control precautions.
These plants stay at the shortest end of the growth spectrum, reaching only 2-3 feet in height at harvest, with a bud production that can maximize smaller spaces. While the BC God Bud is not a single-cola plant, her side branching is minimal enough to make it a sea of green choice. Under these conditions, she can deliver a whopping 3-4 ounces of compact, sparkingly resinous buds per plant.
On the toke, BC God Bud delivers a musky, tropical flavor with herbal edges and hints of lavender, berry, and pine. The high is well balanced, a slight creeper with long lasting effects, starting with a calm, pleasant feeling and increasing to a more surreal, nearly hallucinogenic buzz. She is good for general pain relief and makes a pleasant nighttime smoke. Her inner-space high flourishes in calm environments rather than loud nightclubs or high-stress social encounters. The peace of BC God Bud unfolds in the garden or at the drawing table, and in the quiet hours before bed.-kindgreenbuds
