Your favourite sweet
This feminised marijuana seed will remind you of those trips to the sweet shop with a pocketful of coins to pick out your favourite kind of sweet (that refreshing fruit flavoured one you always yearned for). Big Band is one of the most lauded indica-dominant strains in our seed bank, and it’s no wonder – the flavour is irresistible…
This creation is the result of hard work by our team of breeders, crossing our Black Domina with an appetising bushy Bubble Gum (the one that stretches upwards) and a Chronic; this also provides sweetness and productivity, tipping the balance slightly so that there’s a little sativa in the effect.
It has a THC level that you shouldn’t ignore (above 18%), and it’s one of those varieties that can deceive you when you first encounter it (don’t binge – things might start happening later). But this marijuana seed was created primarily with the intention of providing a fragrant and tasty plant that triggers a Pavlov effect in the mouths of its fans.
Big Band is a super seed with the perfect name. We’re very proud of the results and the feedback we receive about it because it’s a modest variety that’s loved and is increasingly in demand.
How to: Big Band
You can plant it indoors or outdoors, but it must be said that it’s a variety that’s very at home inside, which is where you can get the most benefits from it. It grows quite thick and strong, so don’t leave it to its own devices – control it.
Indoors, as we say, it’s best to leave the growth phase when it’s at 60 or 70 centimetres. After a flowering phase of between 55 and 60 days, you’ll see why we recommend training it or reinforcing it. It has a slight lower branching (prune it if you want to establish a SoG), and huge leaves and extraordinary buds emerging from the top could cause the plant to bend. Cuttings can be taken quite easily. You’ll collect about 500 grams per square metre in optimal conditions, so we can say that the productivity objective has more than been met.
You can also grow Big Band outdoors if you wish. As it’s a feminised marijuana seed with an indica personality, you’ll have to find a very sunny place and quality soil for it. Just like indoors, protect it so it doesn’t bend because even if it’s not a particularly tall plant (1.80 metres at most), those buds weigh a lot. You’ll get 500 grams per plant.
Big Band flavour and effect
One of the biggest strengths of the Big Band seed is its flavour. We’re totally in love with that fruity (strawberry, lemon) and floral acidic sweetness, which is typical of the best kinds of candy.
As we’ve already mentioned, it’s difficult not to repeat the experience. But before thinking about a second helping, we warn you about the effect. It’s a truly relaxing indica with a fairly noticeable increased gravity sensation. We recommend it to many growers who are looking for a marijuana seed suitable for combatting stress.
