Information about Super Bud:
Super Bud is what growers and users alike would call an exemplary strain. After all, the ‘super’ is not for naught. True to its name, it produces massive yields of large buds that, when drawn in, can deliver a heavy-hitting body high.
Super Bud is what some people can consider as the souped-up version of Big Bud with a twist. Already a voracious producer, the addition of Skunk #1 genetics allows it to inherit a part of its Sativa traits as well as further increased its potency.

Though Indica leaning, Super Bud’s onset is marked by a cerebral headrush. It usually does not take long after taking a toke for users to feel happiness welling up inside of them. Apart from enhancing moods, its Sativa influence can turn one cheery and giggly. At times, users may get a little too chatty.
Later on, the full Indica effects on the body become more pronounced. A relaxing sensation travels down to the body beginning from the temple and the back of the head. It helps get rid of tension as it soothes the muscle. The physical effect, though, is not devastating in that it could cause a couch-lock. Instead, it leaves users feeling a bit spacey while in deep relaxation.
Once the high comes down, users may feel the need to go out and grab a bite.
Super Bud smells of sweet skunk blended with a delicious, fruity aroma. A strong note of damp earth is detectable as the buds are chopped and sliced. It can also be quite pungent, especially with loads of the strain around.
True to its heritage, Super Bud tastes very skunky. But, the strain is also fruity like that of sweet, ripened lemons. Savoring in the smoke, users will notice subtle cooling notes of mint on the palate.
In creating Super Bud, Green House Seeds worked hard so that the strain only had less than a handful of adverse reactions. Two of which are a cottonmouth and dry eyes. However, thanks to their mildness, they are unnoticeable.
Like other recreational strains, Super Bud does not have a high CBD value. But, with the combined effects of its psychoactive compounds, it can help appease some health conditions. For example, its happiness inducing high comforts those going through difficult times making it an excellent anti-depressant. Not to mention, it is also quite proficient in melting away stress.
Aside from behavioral changes, Super Bud makes for a great analgesic. Soothing the muscles, it can quickly relieve pains, aches, and muscle tension. Feeling relaxed, most users fall into a deep slumber.
Once awake, there is an overwhelming urge to eat. This can be attributed to Super Bud’s stimulating effects on the appetite.
Super Bud is incredibly easy to grow. It is very sturdy and, unless extreme, can withstand most changes in the weather. As alluded to earlier, it produces outstanding yields even without constant upkeep. And, that makes it attractive not only to commercial growers.
If planted indoors, growers may choose to utilize the Screen of Green (SCROG) or the Sea of Green (SOG) methods. These training techniques optimize plant growth and promote higher yields. As for the outdoors, growers will have to worry about possible pests.
The plant remains short even when mature. But what it lacks in height, it makes up for superb production. A week or two into the flowering phase, its beautiful green buds become minty. These nugs are large, dense, and are heavily-coated with trichome. Meanwhile, the orange pistils contrasting the sugar-coated buds bring out its light green color even more.
Super Bud can get very pungent in the dozens. To keep nosy neighbors out of the loop, it is best to invest in odor control measures. With that said, the plant blooms between eight and nine weeks and yields a colossal 31 ounces per square meter.
When grown in warm and dry environments, Super Bud outperforms itself. Yielding a whopping 35 ounces per plant by early October.
