About Bob Saget
Like the stand-up comic, the Bob Saget strain will leave you dazed and spaced out on the couch, giggling from its “high” brow routine. Its parents were the Afghani and Pre-98 Bubba Kush strains, which should tell you it has some of the pungent power of its famous lineage. Bob Saget will help you lay back and take in a relaxing afternoon, especially if you’ve got friends around. It’s the aromatic version of a belly laugh.
Bob Saget is Sativa-dominant (70/30) and grows with barely any leaf coverage. You’ll notice that the nugs are overly resinous and stacked like columns. The trichomes spread out vibrantly over the green, almost grey plant, tipped with muted purple. At first glance, you may not even notice the sparse leaves under the lengths of trichome, which spur out like alien foliage and give Bob Saget his unyielding weirdness.
He responds well to heavy feeding, particularly early in the growth cycle. He’s tall but not unmanageably so. As a result, the SCROG method would work really well here to stretch out your yield. Bob Saget can be grown indoors year-round, taking around 10-12 weeks to flower, or outdoors in the autumn months, flowering in October and November.
Bob Saget smells of acetone and sweet chemicals (that’s one sentence not to be taken out of context!). It’s what he’s most known for. You get whiffs of sweetness on the buds, but as you break them up you get the unique, nose hair-twitching smell that few strains can offer, in an unknown range of scent somewhere between sweet flowers and plastic cement. The taste is similarly funky: chocolate and paint thinner converted into floral aftertastes. Words don’t do justice to the unique taste of Bob Saget. He’s not for everyone, but it works better than it sounds.
What about the high? Like relaxing at a good comedy show with some friends, the Bob Saget strain lifts you up with a punch of energy, tingling your brain and building up in your head as you relax and recline. You’ll be rendered energetically sociable by the effects of the high, though not necessarily talkative. It’s more like when you’re deeply involved in a movie or video game: you’re “in the zone.” That’s what Bob Saget feels like. It’s almost too much giggling and tingling for effective conversation.
Be careful if you have anxiety issues. Unlike some other strains, Bob Saget amplifies anxiety by ratcheting you up. If you want more energy, and an eventual comedown to a place of placid sleepiness, Bob Saget is uniquely suited to your needs. If you suffer from fatigue, depression, or muscle spasms, you can use Bob Saget to blast your brain into high gear, get the giggles going, and relax on the couch for an evening of stress-free laughs.
