A uniquely delicious strain developed by the Green House Seed Company, Big Bang smells and tastes like candied apples and flowers. Indica-dominant, this hybrid is a collection of Skunk #1, Northern Lights and El Nino. With a lineage that includes Cannabis from Brazil, Mexico, India, Thailand and Afghanistan, this carefully crafted and cosmically named strain has a THC range between 13 and 19 percent. Nearly narcotic in effect for some users, Big Bang took third place in the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup.
Providing a sensation of healing and general euphoria from the beginning of use, this strain has been described as rolling a soft blanket over users gently rocking them to sleep. This blanket can numb aches and pains, calm nausea, soothe muscle spasms and induce an appetite. Some users of higher tolerance find the strain allows them to be functional, though Big Bang should still be reserved for the later hours in the day.
Reportedly capable of producing as much as 800 grams per square meters inside, Big Bang may yield as much as a kilogram outdoors. Even with the larger yields outdoors, most recommend growing this strain in a hydroponics set up for nine weeks so that these plants reach maximum potency. Though she can be ready for harvest in eight weeks and finishes in October outside. Growers recommend starting with a lower pH while vegetating and working up to 6.5 for the flowering period.
