About Garlic Bud
A classic in its own right, Garlic Bud stems from original Afghani strains of the 1990’s. Born and bred in the Netherlands by Sensi Seeds, it gets its name from its potent smell that brings earthy and spicy notes to any room. Garlic Bud is a highly regarded strain in both the recreational and medical communities for its combination of powerful effects.
Bringing a nice amount of THC to the table, Garlic Bud often hovers right around the 20% mark and gives both new and experienced users a run for their money. Nugs are certainly pungent with a garlic aroma, although the scent is more earthy than one might expect. Spicy upon inhale, this strain brings subtle herbal and woody notes that help to balance out the flavor. Garlic Bud typically takes the shape of small and tight pebbles with furry hairs and a thick layer of resin.
Quite possibly the best way to end a long day, this strain immediately imparts a sense of calming euphoria after just one hit. While its effects are surprisingly balanced for a pure indica strain, you’ll certainly feel relaxed in no time. Cerebral mind buzzing eventually gives way to a total body experience, and you’ll find yourself becoming one with your couch pretty quickly. Many users note that Garlic Bud allows them to truly forget about their worries and helps to calm them down no matter what’s going on in their lives.
On that note, this strain is a gift from above for medical patients who suffer from mood disorders. Anxiety, stress, depression, ADHD, and more are no match for its ability to wipe away negative thoughts and allow users to just go with the flow. Moderate THC levels also work wonders for pain and inflammation, especially when used regularly. As your high will leave you feeling incredibly relaxed, Garlic Bud can also be an effective sleep aid.
Resilient to common molds and mildew, Garlic Bud is a great choice for beginning growers. It prefers Mediterranean climates, so a warm and dry atmosphere is really the only necessity for it to thrive. It has a flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks and will produce a nice sized yield. If you choose to cultivate outside, expect to harvest this strain around the middle of October.
