Laughing Buddha Feminised Seeds
Laughing Buddha is an 80% sativa strain that is a cross between a land-race Thai and Barney’s own Jamaican hybrid. It produces an archetypal sativa effect that provides a rush of energy.
For such a sativa-dominant strain Laughing Buddha is quite restricted in terms of its height reaching approximately 100 – 110 cm. tall. It does, however, produce healthy side-branches which will need to be supported in the final three weeks or so of flowering due to the weight of the large, dense buds that develop. Indoors the flowering time is between 70 – 75 days with very good yields of 600 gr/m 2 . Outdoor cultivation will be restricted to regions that avoid early frosts as it will not be ready to crop until the second half of October in northern latitudes.
THC levels are 22% with 1.6% CBD. Laughing Buddha exudes the intensely sweet perfume of ripe, tropical fruits and is one of barney’s most fragrant marijuana strains. It was awarded the 3rd Prize Cannabis Cup (HTCC) 2003.

About Laughing Buddha
If you are looking for buzzy, cerebral characteristics that stem from solid landrace genetics, then consider the Laughing Buddha strain from Barney’s Farm as your new best friend.
We can say many things about this strain, but if you want the short and sweet conclusion, add it to your collection today. Why? Well, let’s see why…
Laughing Buddha: The Roots
A strain’s genetic history is the first place to look when you are casing out a new strain. Laughing Buddha is a seed strain from Barney’s Farms and is a cross between two sativas. And not just any sativas, but sativas that are revered by the Thailand and Jamaican cannabis community. The two sativas that are crossed to breed the Laughing Buddha are indigenous to their respective countries, and many believe that the Thai roots are where the strain gets its unique name from.
Dutch cannabis breeders from Barney’s Farm created this strain as well as other heavyweights in the cannabis realm, including Tangerine Dream and Blue Cheese.
Laughing Buddha is a creation stemming from impressive genetics. How impressive? Well, Sativas indigenous to Jamaica and Thailand- that’s how great. The precise genetic lineage is kept mum, but we know that sativas indigenous to Thailand and Jamaica can only mean good news.
As we have already mentioned, the breeders at Barney’s are no strangers to success; their Tangerine Dream and Blue Cheese has awarded them accolades throughout the years. And so it is no surprise that their Laughing Buddha seed strain won bronze at the High Times Cannabis Cup (2003).
Typical Plant Characteristics
Cannabis is still heavily restricted in the UK. There are, however, a handful of legal growers in the country. Legal cultivators find that the Laughing Buddha strain has unique characteristics as it develops into a mature plant. Laughing Buddha seeds tend to grow into spindly plants with tapered bud structures. This characteristic is reminiscent of its Jamaican roots. The flowers develop in elongated forms, instead of the more typical spheres. If you look closely at the beautiful buds developing, you will notice the opaque white trichomes that develop on the elongated buds. The flowers will start to look icy as if covered in frost. The leaves of the Laughing Buddha tend to remain a dull green, almost yellow color and will usually have a fluffy texture.
When you bring your nose close to a mature Laughing Buddha plant, you can expect a strangely enticing blend of tropics and pepper to tempt your palate. The Laughing Buddha offers a complex flavor profile, with many different aspects to it; you can expect a herby, earthy, fruity, peppery, and citrus blend. But despite how it sounds, all the scents work together to form a harmonious and delicious smell. We are not sure how, but there seems to be a new scent with each aspect of the plant. When the dried nugs are broken open, you can expect a spicy and pepper scent. A strangely nutty aroma is present as well, which keeps everything in check, and prevents the bud from smelling too fruity or acidic.
Now that we have described the smell of Laughing Buddha in great depth, you are probably wondering how it tastes after all those descriptive smells. Well, the Laughing Buddha is a smooth smoke and offers a lemon and herb taste.
The Laughing Buddha is known to be a potent strain, but don’t take it too seriously- its called the Laughing Buddha for a reason.
If you are ready to have your cheeks hurting from smiling and giggling, then this strain is right up your alley. The Laughing Buddha is easily one of our favorite sativas; it offers a great smell, smooth taste, and long-lasting joyful effects. But wait, what effects can you expect?
Laughing Buddha: Typical Effects
The Laughing Buddha seed strain is a quick onset, and people often initially feel pressure around the eyes and temples. The initial effects can be mildly disorientating, as some users have described a feeling of being off-balance, altered perception, and feeling incredibly captivated by external stimuli. Some users report that whatever is viewed or heard can take on intensity, and some even experience mild visual distortions. This initial experience usually gently gives way to a relaxed, stress-free state. As the body and mind begin to lean into relaxation, the tension dissipates, and space is created for a euphoric, giddy, and happy high. Despite being a potent sativa, anxiety and panic are not often reported. The feeling is more friendly and sociable, and the Laughing Buddha is an ideal strain for acquaintances to become friends and friends to become family. This strain will make even the grumpiest person smile.
What’s more, the Laughing Buddha can also be enjoyed solo as it could encourage free-flowing creativity and inspiration. Once the intensive cerebral effects ease down, the indica-high makes its presence known in the guise of complete physical relaxation. But unlike other typical indicas, the Laughing Buddha strain does not physically relax to the couch lock point but keeps an energetic yet stress-free vibe.
Whether users engage with Laughing Buddha during the day or night, this strain is enjoyed by legal users around the world. If you walk into almost any coffee shop in Amsterdam, you will see Laughing Buddha sitting pretty on their menu, usually right by Amnesia (another incredibly delicious Sativa seed strain). It is excellent for a solo session, a social setting, or even getting immersed in nature. The Laughing Buddha should be on your shopping list.
