Puna Budder Strain

At ILGM we want everybody to become a master marijuana grower! Unfortunately, it's not legal to grow marijuana in all states. We don't want anyone to break the law and advise to review your local cannabis legislation. ILGM cannot advise on legal matters. Stay safe!

In an industry dominated by strains leaning toward one end of the spectrum, it is rare to find an evenly-split hybrid like Puna Budder. Besides its exotic flavors, it is famous for its well-balanced psychedelic effects and high THC levels.

Puna Budder boasts of immaculate genetics too. In creating the strain, T.H. Seeds crossed two of the finest landraces. From the tropical Hawaiian variety, it gained its flavorful smoke and notable cerebral buzz. Apart from its intense body high, its Indica structure and short flowering time are obviously from its indigenous Afghani parent.

Fun fact: Did you know ‘Puna’ is a famous district in Southeastern Hawai’I known for its marijuana farmers and enthusiasts. Interestingly, it can also mean ‘dilapidated’ in the same language.

    Adverse Reaction

    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.

      Once mature, the evenly-split hybrid produces densely packed, grape-shaped buds. Its deep forest colors blending with the burnt orange hues of its pistils make it a stunning sight.

      Flowering Time


      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.
