Why Is The Remarkable Laughing Buddha Strain Difficult To Grow?
As you grow older you don’t laugh very loudly anymore, even while watching a comedy show. You need to laugh for health reasons. The Laughing Buddha strain can help you to feel relaxed and giggly.
Laughing Buddha – Overview
Laughing Buddha is a Sativa dominant strain, which is capable of removing the user from a dark mood and getting them to start feeling optimistic about life again. Growing it takes some effort but the yield is in the form of tasty, potent weed. Laughing Buddha was a Cannabis Cup Winner in 2003. It is a hybrid strain made from a fusion of Thai and Jamaican strains.
The genetics of Laughing Buddha are known for growing strong and tall. It is perfect for an indoor hydro-setup and outdoor plots. Moreover, it can be grown in equatorial regions and places where there is less sunlight. Full grown plants are between 75 cm to 90 cm. It takes 90 days to get ready for a harvest but this waiting time is worth it because a moderate yield on average is roughly 3 pounds/square yard. Remember, patience is necessary for growing this weed well.
Why is it Hard to Grow Laughing Buddha?
Even if Laughing Buddha is Sativa dominant, there is small percentage of Indica genetics. This helps to keep the height down for indoor growing. You will need to prune it more than with other strains. Branches are long and carry colas of super-size, so during the flowering period you will need to give the branches some support.
Another reason why this strain is hard to grow is its lengthy flowering phase of approximately 10 to 11 weeks. This means the growers will need to keep plants indoors because an outdoor harvest time will be in middle or late October. At this time there is a huge risk of frost. The lengthy flowering phase means growers need to supply fertilizers to the plant. If you are ready for all these challenges then the final weed yield is rewarding.
