BC Big Bud is the distant Canadian cousin of the classic Amsterdam Big Bud, an indica strain that can be found in almost any and all iconic Coffee Shops in the Netherlands. It is rumoured that the talented team from Jordan of the Islands crossed together Sensi Seeds’ unique variant of Big Bud with another unknown Canadian sativa strain to create a hybrid that combines euphoric headiness and serene relaxation all in one. Just as the name may allude to, this powerful hybrid strain is known for its’ astoundingly enormous nugs that are equally as dense as they are large in stature. But it doesn’t stop there, as the name also refers to the tremendously high THC concentrations that range between 16-23% and its’ potent, heavy-hitting high that is described as a perfectly well-balanced blend of both typical indica and sativa characteristics.
BC Big Bud has solidified itself as a Canadian classic and a favourite amongst stoners for its famed effects and high THC concentrations. On Average, THC levels for this hybrid measure in at roughly 21%, an amount that should not be taken lightly. The high of BC Big Bud is described as being fast-acting and intensely cerebral in the earlier stages, and is not recommended for those with lower tolerances. As an evenly balanced hybrid, the effects of this strain are very versatile and it is a strain that can be enjoyed during any time of the day, for almost any purposes. The balanced combination of uplifting sativa effects and relaxing indica characteristics results in a high that is euphoric, uplifting and arousing. The all-around effects of BC Big Bud make it an ideal strain for smoking during any time of the day and its use should not be limited to certain conditions, activities or settings. Medicinally, this hybrid has many applications – it is a great pain alleviator, stress reliever, and is also a great strain for those with a lack of appetite.
Appearance & Aroma
The signature aroma of BC Big Bud has not changed much from its original predecessor, as it still maintains its earthy base notes and musky, pine undertones. Jordan of the Islands was able to imbue a sweet, almost fruity and haze-like essence into this hybrid by crossing it with another mysterious Canadian sativa strain. This resulted in a terpene profile that is a beautiful harmony between earthy, Afghan-like spice and pine notes and sweeter, haze undertones. As the name may suggest, BC Big Bud is also easily distinguished by its large, chunky nuggets. These buds are long, large and extremely dense, with some nugs growing as long as fingers! The size of the buds alone allow a plentiful amount of resinous THC trichomes to grow and cover the plant, making it heavily concentrated in THC.
