Big Band Strain

According to Kannabia Seeds, an overlooked terpene profile is often an issue among growers purchasing a new variety for the first time. The company decided to develop a high-yielding strain with impressive fragrance and flavor to address this. In this way, one need not choose between a high-yielding plant or a delicious one.

To develop this, the breeders used Bubble Gum. The strain has a well-renowned sweetness that gave way to its moniker. Enhancing its palatable smoke are its berry and floral undertones. Beyond its taste, the strain induces a euphoric head high that gives thoughts a rose-colored tint.

It was later paired with the well-balanced Chronic. Like the former, it has a complex terpene profile that brings out its sweet honeyed flavors sprinkled with floral and spicy hints. The hybrid induces a complementary blend of mental and physical effects that follows a relaxing theme. Perhaps its most distinguished feature, however, is its performance in the grow room.

Kannabia Seeds’ efforts were not for naught. From the cross, Big Band emerged. The Indica-leaning bud has a sweet smell with herbal tinges of herbs which only enhance its overall terpene profile upon consumption. It also solved the initial dilemma of high-yielding strains that did not sacrifice flavors.

Its merits go beyond too. With THC levels between 15% to 18%, it has versatile effects that users can adjust to fit personal tolerance levels. Generally speaking though, its brand of high is a slow-starting euphoria that bides its time when it comes to uplifting the mood. Prepped ahead of time, users slip into a state of relaxation with no qualms.

    It takes about 30 minutes to an hour for its Indica effects to begin. Depending on the dosage, it could potentially lead to a couch lock. Most of the time, however, the effects are not at all debilitating. Instead, it induces a deep relaxation that relieves tightness so users could move like a well-oiled machine while completing light physical tasks.

    In moderation, Big Band could be of use as a wake and bake strain that keeps users alert and upbeat while completing tasks. Extending the high and adding a few extra puffs leads to a more sedating comedown. In which case, one could reserve the bud for a day off or a night of relaxation. This should also serve as a warning to use the strain in moderation.
