Sunshine No. 4 Strain

Like a ray of golden sunlight, Sunshine No.4 easily brightens anybody’s day. A single hit of its smoke adds ‘sunshine’ to an otherwise cloudy day. As it stimulates the mind, users become lively with conversation. But, it is not only recreational enthusiasts that benefit from its cerebral effects. Medical users too find delight in its soothing body buzz.

Nothing short is expected from Bodhi Seeds though. It is their consistent use of fine genetics that makes them one of the most sought-after breeders in the cannabis industry. Their premium catalogue remains unmatched.

In creating Sunshine No.4, for example, they used Chemdawg 4. A topnotch strain with fast-acting effects, its stimulating cerebral high begins in less than 5 minutes after the first hit. To keep its height manageable, it was crossed with Sunshine Daydream. The Indica-dominant hybrid also increased its offspring’s therapeutic value.

A true masterpiece, Sunshine No.4 made great strides in the cannabis industry by winning the gold medal for Best Hybrid Flower at the 2015 High Times Medical Cup in Michigan.

These slight setbacks are barely noticeable and easily mitigated by drinking water. Although, they usually go away on their own with time.

      At the moment, Bodhi Seeds has only made Sunshine No.4 available in its regular form. For this reason, aspiring growers must increase the chances of producing a calyx-filled plant through pre-germination methods like soaking. Low-Stress Training will keep successful females from becoming hermaphrodites. Otherwise, at least half of the batch will turn into males.

      Because of its balanced Indica and Sativa ratio, Sunshine No.4 grows tall but is quite manageable. Its stalks are sturdy and not at all thin. As a result, it has built up resistance against high levels of moisture in the air as well as sudden changes in weather. Meanwhile, its equally hardy branches do not break off even as gusts of strong winds come one after another.

      As its name implies, Sunshine No.4 likes tons of sunshine. For this reason, many commercial breeders and home growers living in the northern hemisphere prefer cultivating their strain in controlled environments. In this way, they can easily adjust factors like humidity, temperature, and lighting to mimic a warmer climate with longer day hours. As for mediums, using soil will bring out its full flavors. Once mature, it yields minty green buds with lots of orange hairs and trichomes.

      Flowering Time


      Like most hybrids, it takes Sunshine No.4 8 to 10 weeks to fully bloom. It yields 12 to 14 ounces of cured buds per square meter. Applying either the Sea or Screen of Green method will help the plant flower faster, produce higher yields, and even save space.


      In the northern hemisphere, garden grown Sunshine No.4 bears flowers around October. Once mature, it yields at least 14 ounces of buds per plant.
