Gutbuster Strain

Gutbuster has a high that Indica and Sativa lovers adore. It has an energizing onset that keeps one productive throughout the day. Complementing it is a mellow body high that gradually intensifies with each passing hour. In all likelihood, users will feel thoroughly relaxed after a day at work.

It was not difficult to create the strain. After all, the industry has multiple strains that cater to one’s needs in terms of growth, flavor, and high. To this end, Kimbo Kush ticked off all the requirements. It is delicious, potent, and impressive in the grow room. Washington breeders Exotic Genetix later added the award-winning Cookies and Cream for its therapeutic benefits.

Among Gutbuster’s best qualities is its memorable flavors. It has the distinguishable taste of vanilla-flavored ice cream accentuated by the flavor of chocolate cookies topped with fruits.

    Gutbuster is a peculiar strain. It is predominantly Indica in structure but its effects lean toward Sativas. However, it remains a slow starter. Rather than a head-slamming high, it induces a gentle buzz of energy from head to toe after 15 minutes of the first two to three puffs. Gradually, it strikes the mind with a rush of euphoria that leaves users feeling happy.

    The mental clarity, along with the upbeat disposition, creates a path for thoughts to flow and form. For casual users, it creates fresh perspectives that sparks creativity. Feeling engaged, and focused, users work through projects and complete tasks with complete motivation.

      Gutbuster has the typical structure of an Indica. It has dark broad leaves that are tinted with a hint of purple. Its stalks and branches are sturdy enough to withstand a variety of growing factors like strong winds and fluctuations in temperature. For this reason, beginners can easily grow it in a farm or garden.

      Although it is relatively sturdy, growers should prepare a temporary enclosing to keep the Gutbuster safe against harsh weather. Frost, for example, can possibly kill the plant overnight. Not to mention, it helps circulate heat in the cold weather of the northern hemisphere.

      A controllable environment is also an option for growers. Indoor growing space allows one to adjust deciding growing factors like temperature, lighting, and humidity. Moreover, one can opt for high intensity light to increase the output per watt.

      The Indica-leaning plant is a great candidate for the Sea of Green method. Its compact structure allows growers to group at least four per square meter. However, it will have to be pruned often. Its density can sometimes harbor moisture in between its crevices. If left unattended, it can develop into mold or mildew that may stunt its growth. Installing an adequate ventilation system will also help aerate the batch.

      Another way to improve yields is by using a hydroponics setup. It delivers nutrients straight to the roots and boosts bud production. Meanwhile, using soil as a medium improves flavors.
