Barbara Bud is powerful indica cross between Shishkaberry and Afghani that eliminates symptoms without too much mental cloudiness. It has a fruity, citrus aroma with sweet undertones of bubblegum, and many patients have found Barbara Bud to help with pain, stress, and muscle spasms.
Barbara Bud presents a unique and stunning aesthetic. It almost looks like plants have experienced a night of heavy snow, but don’t let this look deceive you. The white complexion is really just a result of intense trichome density, giving it a furry appearance. Barbara Bud has its genetic roots in Afghanistan, and is the result of crossbreeding Shishkaberry and Afghani. The high yields, hardiness, and effects that this indica-dominant strain offers have made it successful in a huge amount of competitions, including Spannabis 2014 and Karma Cup Toronto 2014.
The high generated from hitting bongs of Barbara Bud is very mellow and relaxing, and each hit is silky smooth when buds are cured well. The strain features a THC content just below 12%, meaning the high is chill and not overwhelming.
