Laughing Buddha AAA++ Sativa Weed Strain Now available at Bulk Buddy’s Premium Dispensary

Laughing Buddha is a buzzy, thought-provoking strain with very strong landrace genetics. It is a cross between sativas that are indigenous to Jamaica and Thailand — and in fact, it may be named for its Thai roots, as Thailand is a historical center of Theravada Buddhism. Laughing Buddha has a dank, citrus taste and energizing effects. It was created by Dutch breeders Barney’s Farm, the same group responsible for taste-focused strains like Tangerine Dream and Blue Cheese. The strain’s potency earned it Third Place in the 2003 High Times Cannabis Cup.

Cannabis enthusiasts familiar with the uniquely spindly, tapered bud structure of Jamaican and Thai will see the influence of these strains in the flowers of Laughing Buddha. The large blossoms are more elongated than spherical. Leaves are a dull shade of yellow-green and have a relatively fluffy, ragged texture. Cloudy white trichomes cover the buds, giving them an icy appearance. The predominant aroma of Laughing Buddha is vaguely tropical, with notes of citrus and herbs. There’s also a toasted, nutty character that rounds out these scents and keeps them from smelling too fruity or acidic. Breaking open or grindings the flowers yields a spicy and peppery odour. When combusted, Laughing Buddha burns with a smooth, rich smoke. On the exhale, this smoke has a skunky lemon flavour with some herbal highlights.

The high from Laughing Buddha takes hold quickly, manifesting as a pressure around the eyes and temples. Smokers may be initially caught off balance by feelings of altered perception, attaching their attention to all kinds of external stimuli. Sights and sounds can take on a new intensity, and visual distortions are commonly reported. As this new sensation becomes more familiar, users notice that their tensions and stresses have dissipated and given way to a giddy, euphoric mood. These friendly, positive vibes are right at home in social settings, where Laughing Buddha can facilitate interesting and free-flowing conversation. As the high wears on, an indica-inflected body high creeps in, making smokers more physically relaxed — but by no means incapacitating them. Because it can encourage productivity and relaxation in equal measure, Laughing Buddha is a great strain to enjoy either during the day or later on in the evening.

Medically speaking, Laughing Buddha has a few psychological applications. Its mood-altering effects can provide temporary relief from the distracting symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, and PTSD, helping patients to spend their time more mindfully and deliberately. This strain’s sense of sustained focus can also help those with attention deficit disorders to concentrate their mental energy on a single task. Because it lacks the cerebral intensity of other sativas — like parent strain Jamaica, which is known to be especially powerful in this regard — Laughing Buddha may be a good choice for those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.

Breeders Barneys Farm sells seeds of Laughing Buddha directly through their website. It is considered a difficult grow, and may not be the best choice for newcomers to cultivation. This strain can be grown indoors or outdoor, although its landrace roots should give you some hint as to its ideal climate; it is best cultivated in a humid, tropical region with consistent daytime sunlight. If grown indoors, its characteristically sativa height will need to be either accommodated by the grow space or kept in check by regular pruning and trimming early in the vegetative stage. Because it is an entirely pure sativa, Laughing Buddha has a very long flowering time of 11 to 12 weeks when grown indoors; it is ready for harvest at the end of October when grown outdoors. As this strains flowers, growers may want to bolster the plant’s tall stalks with stakes or other supports to keep them from drooping under the weight of large buds and colas. This strain offers growers a high output for their efforts, yielding about 56 grams (or 2 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.

With thoughtful but not overwhelming cerebral effects, Laughing Buddha is a great option for those seeking a calm, middle-of-the-road sativa. It is enjoyable whether you’re hanging out with friends or just lounging solo at home. Laughing Buddha is also the perfect way to enhance a hike or a camping trip.

    Great taste and burned clean. The buzz was good, and it did make my brother and I giggle a bit. The one drawback was that the buzz was a little too short lived and that’s why I only gave it 4 stars.
