Big Bud is now available from Sensi Seeds as a feminised cannabis strain. Long admired for its superb yield potential this is an 85% indica strain the original cutting of which was back-crossed to an elite Afghani plant after extensive research had identified the genotype used in the original. Further breeding and selection has resulted in this feminised version becoming commercially available.
Big Bud feminised is a very versatile plant. Indoors it can be vegged. for a short period before being put into flowering achieving a final height of around 30 cm. Lateral branches are quite rudimentary and therefore SoG is a good choice for maximum yields in small spaces. Alternatively if larger plants are required then vegging for longer can result in huge plants with simply staggering yields. Flowering indoors takes between 50 - 65 days. It can also be grown outdoors but requires a warm, dry climate to fulfil its potential.
In developing this feminised version the aroma has been upgraded somewhat with a spiciness added to its sweet fruit. Buds are large, dense and packed full of sparkling resin producing a high which is a strong, physical stone enlivened by the Skunk genes' psychoactive high.
About Sensi Seeds
There is no other seed bank in the world that has been coveted with more awards than Sensi Seeds. From the Highlife Cup to the Cannabis Cup, Sensi have achieved unrivalled legendary status in the seed bank world.
In the early 1970’s, the founder of Sensi, Ben, opened a clothes shop in the Dutch city of Rotterdam where he sold homemade clothing. A few years earlier, at the age of seventeen, he smoked his first joint. But it wasn’t until he began making regular trips to Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan to purchase textiles that he became aware of the plant’s versatility. He learned about hemp fibre’s suitability as, among other things, a textile and was given cannabis and cannabis seeds by local farmers. Ben discovered that the cannabis plant had so much to offer in spite of it being prohibited and vilified in all corners of the world.
It became one of his passions to collect cannabis seeds from Central and South East Asia and the Asian subcontinent. Back home in the Netherlands, he started to cultivate these seeds in order to learn more about the growth process of this very special plant.
At the start of the 1980’s, the first examples of innovative, stabilised hybrids, such as Haze and Skunk, arrived in Europe from the United States. Ben was one of a mere three Dutch cultivators who were granted access to these hybrids, which are considered an important blueprint for the development of European hybrids.
At the end of the seventies, Ben found out that cannabis seeds did not fall under the cannabis prohibition; it was only the plant that was prohibited and not the seeds. As it was not illegal to sell seeds, Ben reasoned that the production process should not be illegal either. He started his seed company after a lawyer confirmed this insight and in 1985 the Sensi Seed Club, also known as the Sensi Connoisseurs’ Club, came into being. Ben took over a company called the Seed Bank in 1991 and the gene libraries were merged to create the Sensi Seed Bank as we know it today.
Sensi Seeds search for cannabis genetics has never ceased in the last 30 years. Their dedication towards genetic preservation has also never diminished. To this day, Sensi are true to their roots and are now, more than ever, aware that the future of cannabis genetic research lies in its past, in the genetics that started it all.
Sensi genetics offer not only the high yield and range of effects people search for, they actually represent a part of Cannabis’ history.
With a host of award winning strains, it would be unwise to overlook Sensi Seeds, available to buy at Seedsman now.
