Ed Rosenthal Super Bud is a 50/50 indica/sativa cannabis strain named after the famous High Times writer and cannabis expert. This plant was produced after many generations of breeding and selection for the desired traits. Even the sativa side alone includes geno-types from Africa, South East Asia, Central America and the Caribbean.
Ed Rosenthal Super Bud displays little pheno-typical variation with what differences there are being largely confined to bud formation and structure rather than any great difference in size or flowering time. Indoors plants will stretch about 150% (i.e. a plant that is 100 cm. tall when the switch in light schedule occurs will finish up at 150 cm.) and the flowering phase will last from 55 - 65 days. Outdoor growers in warm, dry climates (think Mediterranean or similar) should be able to harvest in late October through to early November in northern latitudes.
Buds have a density that is traditionally associated with indica plants and they are made even larger by the familiar sativa tendency to "run" and pile on calyx after calyx in all directions. The more sativa-leaning individuals will have many branches all with long pyramidal buds the weight of which can easily snap branches and therefore some form of support will be required. The indica-leaning plants will form more of a single cola structure, with far fewer side-branches, that will increase in size and compare with the size of a forearm. Buds are sparkling with a coat of snow-like resin crystals.
The dominant aroma and flavour is of pineapple punch. The effect is an award-winning combination of cerebral sativa and body-centred indica sensations.

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.
