Biggest bud strain characteristics


Biggest Bud is one of our strains, that has been known for its amazing yield. In this article, we will provide all of the information about this strain in general and about both of the options that are available; photoperiod and autoflowering.



Is Biggest Bud feminized seed?

Yes, all of our seeds are feminized, meaning they will produce only female plants. Female plants are typically more popular, since only they produce buds, that are rich in THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. They also tend to produce more yield. Male plants are not as popular, since they fertilize the female buds. This results in buds that contain less cannabinoids and more seeds.



What is the difference between photoperiod and autoflowering Biggest Bud seed?

The main difference is in their overall life span and the beginning of flowering phase. Photoperiod plants take more time to produce their yield, since they begin their flowering phase according to their lighting schedule. This means, the photoperiod seed will only start flowering once it senses a switch in light cycle. In nature, this usually happens at the end of summer, when the days get shorter. Indoors, the growers need to reduce amount of light per day to achieve this switch. Therefore, they take more time to produce yield, but it is usually bigger, since plant has more time for development.


On the other side, autoflowering seeds make this switch by themselves, according to their age. They are bred to produce yield quickly. So, with autoflowering strain, you can expect your plant to finish its flowering phase around 11 weeks after planting it. They are usually smaller in size, since they do not have as much time to develop, but this does not have to be a bad thing, because they can be more discreet.

Biggest Buds family tree

Biggest Bud is a product of USA and Afghani indica ancient strains. From those strains, Northern Lights #1 were developed, and later on bred with USA indica, resulting in Big Bud. With some improvements and changes, our Biggest Bud was born.

To get Auto Biggest Bud, our original photoperiod Biggest Bud was bred with an unknown ruderalis strain. Ruderalis is a hardy and wilder species of cannabis, that is known for the autoflowering ability. This ability is with breeding transferred to the new strains.

You need to keep in mind that while they do tend to produce more, they need a lot more time to finish. In this span of this time, many factors can impact your plant, so if you do not have the knowledge and the skills already, you will need to google and learn a few things.
