Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 19% – 24%
Honey Bud, also known as “The Honey Bud,” is a rare evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through crossing the delicious Maui Wowie X Super Skunk X Chemdawg Honey Oil strains. This potent powerhouse is best known for its super delicious flavor, although its effects are nothing to sneeze at either. Honey Bud packs a super sweet and sugary honey citrus flavor with a lightly sour tropical fruity exhale. The aroma is very similar, with an earthy skunky overtone that’s very sweet and sugary with a tropical fruity effect. The Honey Bud high is just a delicious as the flavor, with bright eye-opening effects paired with deeply relaxing overtones and a smooth transition from start to finish. You’ll feel a sense of euphoria and focus within your mind while your body settles into a deeply relaxing and tingly physical stone that locks you to the couch. Thanks to these effects and its super high 19-24% average THC level, Honey Bud is said to be perfect for treating those suffering from conditions such as appetite loss or nausea, chronic stress, mood swings, depression and chronic pain. This bud has dense and super tight grape-shaped bright neon green nugs with amber undertones, vivid orange hairs and a coating of sparkling golden amber crystal trichomes.
Type of High
Honey Bud marijuana strain induces strong and long lasting cerebral euphoria, increases focus, uplifts mood, prompts giggles. Followed by body relaxation and tingling body sensation. Relieves stress, controls pain, stimulates appetite.
Honey Bud cannabis strain is a three-way cross between Maui Wowie, Super Skunk and Chemdawg Honey Oil.
Chemdawg is a legendary strain with an uncertain genetic history. While it is thought to be crossed from Thai and Nepalese sativa landraces by U.S. breeders, many have laid claim to this strain’s creation. Chemdawg’s origin stories include one account of a complicated seed exchange among fellow growers at a Grateful Dead concert and another tale pinning the strain’s parentage on a Colorado strain called Dog Bud (so named for its tendency to make the smoker roll over like a dog). Whatever its beginnings, Chemdawg has become a staple in the U.S. cannabis market for its unique taste and upbeat, energetic high. It has also been used to crossbreed several popular and successful strains. Chemdawg’s THC content has been measured at between 15% and 20%.
Chemdawg has medium-sized buds that look slightly different from those of hybrid or pure indica lineage. Long and tapered rather than popcorn-like, the flowers have relatively loose and wispy leaves. The spring green leaves are covered in sticky white trichomes, lending buds a silver-white appearance. Due to the combination of their loose structure and resinous texture, buds of Chemdawg are particularly difficult to break up by hand — users preparing flowers for joints or pipes will have an easier time with a grinder. The sticky flowers are threaded through with red to orange pistils. Chemdawg has a smell reminiscent of diesel fuel (which many say is the source of the “chem” in its name). The pungent flowers also give off odors of earthy musk and some pine. As long as flowers are properly cured, this strain has smooth smoke that tastes sour and when inhaled. On the exhale, Chemdawg’s smoke betrays its signature diesel taste with an ammonia-like tang that hits the top of the palate.
Chemdawg’s potency has made it a valuable strain for crossbreeding. Its descendant strains include the phenotype Chemdawg 91 as well as the hugely popular hybrids Sour Diesel and OG Kush. More likely to keep users awake then put them to sleep if consumed at night, it has an almost eye-watering pungency and energizing and thought-stimulating effects. Chemdawg can be a great choice for accomplishing tasks, as well as for more celebratory circumstances as it keeps heads buzzing and conversation flowing.
Super Skunk is an Indica-dominant cannabis strain with potent body effects. Its parent, Skunk #1, is a reliable and legendary strain that first created Shiva Skunk. Three years later came Super Skunk, which the breeder, Sensi Seeds, calls the first hybrid breeding project with Afghani roots. The breeder says that Super Skunk adds potency, weight, and flavor to Skunk #1 and Shiva Skunk.
The company continues its experiments in Afghan hybrids, as do other companies in the U.S. and abroad. Breeders are chasing the dream of a perfect Afghani genotype that matches Skunk #1. Their passion stems from Skunk #1’s global influence since the 1970s and it’s crosses that span generations including Acapulco Gold and Colombian Gold.
Super Skunk inherits its parent’s aromatic values, which people call skunk due to its overwhelming resemblance to the black and white woodland creature. Others say that the smell is like cheese or the fungus underside of a rock. People describe the smoke as clean and the taste as sweet.
Super Skunk has not changed much since the early 1990’s when it was originally released and it has a reputation for being very strong and potent. Super Skunk has dense, thick buds and is not difficult to grow.
When growing indoors one can expect higher than average yields at roughly 15 ounces per square meter and a flowering time between 8 and 9 weeks. Outdoors, this strain is ready for harvest in mid- September with yields just over 21 ounces per square meter.
Maui Waui, sometimes called Maui Wowie, is a mostly Sativa hybrid that was considered a top of the line strain when it first appeared in the 1960s. The argument, ‘pot wasn’t as potent back then’ generally refers to a time before Maui Waui was developed.
Maui Waui was one of the first strains with greatly increased THC content. In the 60s, when Maui Waui was bred, the THC content of an average marijuana strain was quite low (almost always under 8%). Maui Waui featured THC content well into the teens and quickly became one of the most desired strains available.
These days, it is considered to be a middle to high grade medication that provides a typical Sativa high with a few Indica perks. Other strains (along with new hybrids) have caught up and even surpassed this legendary strain in THC content.
Maui Waui originated as an outdoor grow on the island of Maui and almost immediately spread to all the Hawaiian Islands. Unfortunately the strain’s exact genetics are not known. The plants of this strain show their true heritage in their height, usually reaching around 175 centimeters. Outside, Maui Waui should only be grown in a tropical climate. When grown in a tropical climate, Maui Waui is fairly resistant to molds and mildew as well as disease.
