Information about Suzy Q:
It is rare to find an herb almost completely void of THC. After all, psychoactive potency is among the first qualities users look for in a bud. However, such cannabis strains do exist to cater to medicinal users as well as beginners.
One such strain is Suzy Q. Developed by the Burning Bush Nurseries with the help of Project CBD, it boasts an impressive medical bud with a CBD:THC ratio of 20:1. However, some exceptional batches have tested as high as 59:1.
Its lineage is currently as mystery as Burning Bush Nurseries has chosen to uphold breeder secrecy. This not a setback for the company though. After all, its well-balanced hybrid has provided a number of patients with a reprieve without the possible intoxication caused by THC.
Suzy Q is also appealing to many growing enthusiasts. Apart from the ease of growth, its buds are stunning. Finished buds are moderately dense, deep shades of green, dark orange hairs

Suzy Q is not one to overwhelm users with a hard-hitting cerebral high. Instead, it eases itself into the mind as a feeling of upliftment. Its slowness is mostly because of its lack of THC. Still, many medicinal users as well as beginners appreciate the strain for its gentle buzz.
Once the effects of the initial onset have settled, many immediately notice an improved mood and clear mind. The sensation, if anything, is akin to being cradled in a cloud of euphoria or sitting by the beach free of worries.
It is best to prepare some snacks ahead of time. After all, the subtle mental stimulation does ignite the appetite so one may replenish any lost energy from food.
In time, a tingly sensation introduces itself starting from the temples. It works its way down until the whole body is enveloped in deep relaxation. Even so, enthusiasts do not become couch-locked. On the contrary, one may feel totally ready to perform tasks or work on projects.
A consistent feature among many high CBD strains is a predominantly earthy terpene profile. As such, it comes as no surprise that Suzy Q has a fragrant aroma of wet soil accentuated by the woody smell of pine. Further inspection also reveals its subtle herbal notes which intensify once the buds are broken apart or combusted.
The same earthy flavor, which Suzy Q is famous, dominates the palate. Enhancing it are refreshing overtones of pine as well as spicy undertones of herbs. On the exhale, a woody aftertaste washes over the mouth.
Because of its high CBD levels, Suzy Q can sometimes cause a headache. Most of time, however, users only report a feeling of dryness in the eyes and in the mouth due to cannabinoids interfering with the production of moisture. Nonetheless, the three side effects are mild or barely noticeable. Moreover, each go away on its own after a few hours. Still, if symptoms persist, users may need to down a few glasses of water to stay hydrated as well as pace consumption.
Suzy Q is arguably one of the best medical strains available in today’s market. At its best, it contains CBD levels of up to 25% that help ease countless mental and physical afflictions which plague patients all over the world.
Among its best uses is as a relaxant. By easing the muscles, it prevents it from contracting and sending pain signals to the brain for processing. It also reduces redness and swelling which are often the main cause of sudden muscular tension or spasms.
On the behavioral aspect, Suzy Q makes for an impressive stress reliever and anti-depressant. Its mood-enhancing properties positively affects outlooks. At the same time, its calming buzz removes overwhelming dread or anxiety over certain issues.
Though Suzy Q provides users with depression and other mental health issues like PTSD with comfort, it is not a cure for any of the existing or underlying problems. Always, the best recourse is to see a health professional for long-term treatment.
Burning Bush Nurseries truly provided the world with a gift when it made Suzy Q’s seeds available. Even better, it is available in feminized form which not only assures aspiring breeders of an all-female batch but also an easier grow.
With that said, Suzy Q is a sturdy strain with great resin production that makes it ideal for concentrates. It grows relatively tall and usually does not need to be topped early. However, those with truly limited growing spaces may need to shorten the vegetative period to manage its height.
The perfectly split hybrid also performs well under the sun in gardens and farms. In soil, its flavors become deeper and richer compared to plants cultivated in soilless mediums. However, such systems produce cleaner, pesticide-free buds. It also helps the plant grow quicker.
Suzy Q blossoms within 8 to 10 weeks. By the end of the flowering period, growers are expected to harvest between 12 to 14 ounces of buds per square meter.
Outdoors, Suzy Q produces flowers in October – usually around the second to the last week. It yields no less than 14 ounces of buds per plant.
