Puna Budder is undoubtedly a fast-acting strain. With THC levels ranging from 19% to 22%, it delivers a cerebral high marked by the classic Sativa rush of euphoria. It lifts spirits up with a building happiness. As it spreads, the clearheaded psychoactive smoke inspires a creative surge.
In time, the Indica effects begin to manifest. In the limbs and the muscles, the once creeping buzz intensifies and surprises users with a heaviness. Nothing of the lethargic sort, though. Instead, it relaxes the body to make movement easier.
Puna Budder has a unique and alluring flavor. Drawn in, it bursts in the palate in a combination of sweet berry, creamy butter, and refreshing pine. On the exhale, its smoke is smooth on the throat and leaves a tropical skunk aftertaste.
Marijuana consumption and dehydration are a famous tandem. Because of its mildness, seasoned users ignore its symptoms. They usually go away with time but beginners may find the lack of moisture in the eyes and mouth a little uncomfortable. In such cases, it best to rehydrate with water.
In some rare cases, Puna Budder can trigger anxiety. This is usually a side effect that comes with toking too much of the bud. Although, experience and individual tolerance also play a huge factor. Most of the time, however, the bud only causes a headache.
T.H. Seeds brands itself as “Amsterdam’s Finest Medical Genetics.” Thus, it is not surprising for Puna Budder to be of therapeutic value to the medical cannabis community.
In delivering its uplifting high, Puna Budder also positively alters one’s negative outlook on life. With moods stabilized and enhanced, it allows users with mental conditions like depression and anxiety take control of their stressors. Similarly, it can be used as a stress-reliever.
In high levels, THC turns into a natural painkiller. Its analgesic properties appease pain caused by painful contractions in the muscles such as cramps and nausea. As the soothing buzz reaches the gastrointestinal tract, it stimulates the stomachs and gets casual users hungry. But, for patients diagnosed with anorexia, cachexia, or those who have just undergone chemotherapy, it reinvigorates a hearty appetite.
Puna Budder’s structure is heavily influenced by its indigenous Afghani heritage. Besides being naturally short, its stalks are thick and highly resistant against diseases brought about by humidity. Not only that, its branches are strong enough to carry the weight of its heavy, resin-coated buds. While the plant can withstand extreme temperatures, it prefers warm, semi-humid climates.
At the moment, Puna Budder is only available in regular form. For this reason, it is best to germinate a few extra seeds to ensure a higher female turnout. With that said, aspiring growers should apply Low-Stress Training techniques to keep plants from turning into hermaphrodites.
Puna Budder has an indoor flowering period of 8 to 9 weeks. Once mature, aspiring growers can harvest up to 12 ounces of buds per square meter. Applying the Sea of Green method, however, will encourage even better yields.
Puna Budder should finish blooming by the last week of September. In the hands of a seasoned grower, each plant produces more than 12 ounces of trichome-coated buds.
