Overview(top)

Big Bud (Sensi Seeds) always has been renowned as a cannabis strain with amazingly high yields. Through comprehensive testing and research, Sensi Seeds could take the Big Bud clone back to her origins by breeding along with a special and rare Afghani, resulting in the original, prize-winning Big Bud seed-strain. Sensi’s ultimate, back-crossed hybrid recaptures the vigour of the very 1st clone and benefits additionally from fruity, sweet flavours and a fantastic enhancement in potency. Resin output is prolific, even on the internal areas of flower clusters, making for a potent bodily stone that is brightened from the high of Skunk´s Sativa forefathers.

Strain History(top)

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 our 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

Big Bud has always been famous as a cannabis strain with staggering yields. Her superior Indica pedigree was carefully refined and steadily improved over many years and has now been perfected for release as an all-female seed strain!

The first clone-only Big Bud was a sturdy Afghanica infused with Skunk genes - a hybrid possessing amazing vigour and unexpected, record-breaking production.

Through extensive research and testing, Sensi Seeds was able to take the Big Bud clone back to her roots by breeding with a rare and special Afghani, resulting in the original, award-winning Big Bud seed-strain.

Breeding continued, with the aim of producing a reliable, uniform feminised version of this super-productive variety which, after years of work, is now available to the public!

Sensi´s all-female hybrid is as vigorous and potent as ever and has received a further refinement in aroma - a crisp, spicy undercurrent runs through her sweet-fruit flavour. Resin production is prolific, even on the inner surfaces of flower clusters, making for a powerful physical stone that´s brightened by the high of Skunk´s Sativa ancestors.

Growth is very strong, yet height gain is easy to control and predict. Finished plants can be kept under 30cm if flowered as seedlings, while huge plants can be easily achieved with a longer vegetation time.

Lateral branching is subdued, with most production occurring on the main stem, making feminised Big Bud a natural SOG strain when kept small, and an ideal candidate for topping when grown to medium or large sizes

As with the regular version, enormous production remains the central feature of feminised Big Bud. On both small and large plants, flower clusters are huge, sparkling, and wonderfully solid!
