Honey Bun strain

The Honey Bun strain’s origins and lineage may vary depending on who you talk to. But one thing remains undisputed: the irresistible flavor of this tasty hybrid. This review focuses on the cultivar many believe started it all – Honey Bun by Minntz.

Minntz has a reputation for releasing top-notch, flavorful strains, and Honey Bun is no different. Created through a blend of Gelatti and Kush Mints 11, it’s a balanced hybrid with evenly balanced effects to match. 

With an overwhelming abundance of strains out there (and a list that grows longer by the day), getting to the bottom of every strain can become tricky. The ILGM research team does its best to keep all information up-to-date, but not all details are freely available. Feel free to discuss additional information in the comment section.

Honey Bun strain genetics

When breeding powerhouses Cookies and Seed Junky Genetics collaborated to create the Minntz brand, everyone knew it would be a game changer. And boy, was it. But what else would you expect from such unstoppable creative talents? The breeders know how to give the people what they want. 

Just look at the Honey Bun strain genetics. Gelatti, the offspring of Gelato and Biscotti, is a balanced hybrid with a 19-23% THC level. Despite its 50:50 ratio, its effects can sometimes lean sativa. Kush Mints 11 comes from Bubba Kush and Animal Mints and is a balanced hybrid with a 22-24% THC content that hits hard and fast.  

Nature’s Grace and Wellness, Coastal Sun, and Taylormade Selections offer the Honey Bun strain, but the lineages differ. One version crosses Gelatti with Honey B, while another has unconfirmed genetics (though sources suspect Honey B and Wedding Cake). While you may never truly know who did it first, you can decide who did it best. So why not try them all?

Is Honey Bun strain indica or sativa

The Honey Bun weed strain’s parents are both evenly balanced hybrids, and the offspring follows suit with a 50:50 indica-to-sativa ratio. This ratio may differ between genetic versions, though. For this reason, you can expect the Honey Bun strain price to fluctuate as well. 

Growing Honey Bun strain

Like many other Cookies strains, Honey Bun strain seeds aren’t widely distributed, making them hard to find. And if you do manage to track some seeds down, there’s often no telling which lineage you’re actually getting. According to the majority of online Honey Bun strain reviews, this plant produces large grape-like nugs with a rich green color sprinkled with light amber pistils and a generous coating of white trichomes. 

Sources say you can grow Honey Bun indoors, outdoors, or in greenhouse conditions. Warm, humid conditions with frequent pruning will encourage your plant to thrive. Ensure you have adequate ventilation, as growers say this cultivar emits a pungent odor that would be hard to explain away. Growing the Honey Bun marijuana strain may be best left to the experienced grower, as it requires some cultivation knowledge and skill. If you’re new to growing, these strains are a great alternative!

Honey Bun strain flowering time

The average flowering time for Honey Bun is 59-66 days (8-9 weeks), although some growers say it can be as little as 7 weeks. Depending on growing conditions, climate, and region, outdoor growers can expect to harvest around 72 days in.  

Honey Bun strain autoflowering time

The autoflowering version of Honey Bun, like most autoflowers, starts blooming very early. Because it doesn’t require light deprivation to start flowering, expect the first buds to appear after four to six weeks. Honey Bun autoflowers can be harvested after ten to fourteen weeks. That makes its (auto)flowering time between four and ten weeks long.

Honey Bun strain yield

The average yield of any cannabis plant depends on several factors, including the skill of the cultivator, growing conditions, strain genetics, and size and health of the plant. It also differs between photoperiod and autoflower plants. However, you can use general estimates as a potential yield per plant guideline. 

For photoperiod plants, this is 16-64 ounces (450-1814 grams) outdoors and 8-24 ounces (227-680 grams) indoors.

Honey Bun strain autoflower yield

The potential yield per plant for autoflowering plants is approximately 1.7-7 ounces (50-200g) outdoors and 1.7-4.2 ounces (50-120 grams) indoors.

Honey Bun strain effects

Honey Bun’s effects are just as balanced as its genetics, delivering a happiness-filled head high and a powerful, relaxing body stone. With an average THC content of 16-23%, this potent hybrid hits hard and lasts long. So, consume with caution – especially if you’re a beginner. Its CBD content wavers within 0.76-1.02%, with CBC and CBG at around 0.38 – 1.49% and CBN is a low 0.18 – 0.37%. 

The Honey Bun high gets the munchies going, and the couch lock is intense, so consider future-you and plan ahead with snacks and liquids. According to consumers, you’ll experience bodily sensations of heavy eyes, tingling, or uncontrollable giggles. While those aren’t necessarily bad effects, they can be overwhelming for a newb. Overall, the Honey Bun high is powerful yet mentally and creatively stimulating, uplifting your mood while filling your body with relief and relaxation. It’s great for dealing with pain or if you’re having trouble sleeping. 

If you prefer balanced effects, Disco Bizkit (GSC Extreme x Do Si Dos) might be just what you’re after. With its mentally stimulating and physically relaxing effects, this hybrid is similar to Honey Bun (but much easier to grow).

Honey Bun strain terpenes

The Honey Bun strain’s genetics sounds delicious. With Gelatti’s flavorful and aromatic blend of strong honey notes complemented by heavy gas and Kush Mint 11’s sweet, earthy, herbal elements underlined by skunkiness, Honey Bun oozes with flavor

According to Honey Bun strain info, its terpene profile is dominated by the rich earthiness of b-myrcene, the bold citrusy notes of limonene, and a subtle woodiness of pinene. Its decadent flavor is reminiscent of honey-glazed donuts with hints of nuts and cream. Sweet floral aromas with honey and citrus are notable within the overall skunky pungency of this strain. It lives up to its name and honors its heritage in a way your tastebuds (and nose) will appreciate.
