The God Bud strain (not to be confused with God’s Gift) is a very euphoric and relaxing, Indica-dominant strain. Its lineage consists of both Sativa and Indica parents. The effects of this strain are almost entirely from its Indica side. This strain was originally created by Jordan of the Islands, a famous Canadian seed bank. They mixed an almost pure Sativa strain called Hawaiian with a very strong purple Indica strain to create this beauty. God Bud has won a few awards in it’s day but most notably the High Times Indica Cup in 2004. It has also been a dispensary favourite in Vancouver, BC. You can now find the strain up and down the West Coast as well as Colorado.
When grown properly the strain comes out quite fluffy and completely covered in trichomes. In fact, the massive amounts of trichomes this strain produces may even make the buds appear white from a distance. It’s taste is earthy with a hint of citrus and tropical fruit from it’s Hawaiian lineage giving it a sweet aftertaste.
Because God Bud’s effects lean so much on the Indica side the strain should mostly be relegated to night time or evening use. Along with euphoria and relaxation the strain can impart sleepiness and drowsiness especially when consumed in larger doses or by novice users. The strain is great for insomnia as well as depression and has even proven to be an effective appetite stimulant.
God Bud is widely used as a treatment for chronic pain, stress, and anxiety, and it’s also prescribed as a treatment for severe depression in higher doses. Because of its indica dominance, it is suggested that you don’t smoke it late at night or if you have a sleep disorder, such as insomnia. It also tends to keep you awake for long hours even after its other effects have faded. With an herbal, musky taste and a tropical, earthy smell, this strain is a favorite among all levels of smokers. This resin coated bud features flaming orange hairs and abundant white crystal trichomes and is truly a god among buds.
