About Incredible Bulk
Incredible Bulk is a strain with both hefty flowers and big-time genetics. This indica-dominant hybrid is a three-way cross between Super Skunk, Green Spirit, and notoriously chunky Big Bud.
Like Big Bud, Incredible Bulk provides very heavy yields of exceptionally large flowers. Created by Dr. Krippling (who also gives us Afghan Cow), this strain provides unmistakably sedative effects and an extremely pungent odor. Its THC level has been measured at between 12% and 24%.
True to its name, Incredible Bulk’s flowers catch the eye with their remarkable size. These buds are very large and adhere in thick, pseudo-spherical formations, almost resembling golf balls. The fat nuggets have an indica-type structure, with all leaves densely packed and coiled inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a murky shade of dark green, although some phenotypes can also boast patches of light and dark purple. These latter colors are the result of anthocyanin pigments in the strain’s genetics, which release blue and indigo hues when agitated by cold weather in the growing process. Finally, a carpet of icy white trichomes makes these large buds even more colorful and accounts for their high psychoactivity.
When properly cured, Incredible Bulk’s flowers have a decidedly musky, earthy aroma. On closer inspection, there are also sharp hints of skunk. Grinding up or breaking apart the buds yields notes of fresh pine. Despite this combination of heavy, woodsy scents, though, Incredible Bulk gives off a smooth and palatable smoke when burnt. On the exhale, this smoke tastes piney with notably sour accents.
Unlike Bruce Banner’s transformation into the Incredible Hulk, Incredible Bulk has a more subtle, gradual onset. Several minutes after consuming it, smokers tend to feel a growing pressure in the temples and around the eyes; some may also detect an increase in their salivation. Once familiarized with these odd sensations, smokers typically also detect a change in their sensory perception, with certain sights and sounds taking on new dimensions of intensity. Such trippy, heady effects can be amplified by the addition of spacey music or some visually engaging movies. Indeed, kicking back in front of the TV may be the only thing you’ll want to pursue once under the full weight of Incredible Bulk’s influence. With a very subtle head high, Incredible Bulk’s only discernible mental effects center on some cognitive free association, with users finding their attention drawn from one concept to the next in meandering succession. As such, this is not the best bud for accomplishing complex, work-related tasks, but it’s very good for open-ended creative brainstorming. As time passes or as dosage is increased, the strain’s through body high melts into a pervasive sense of couchlock, rendering any prior motivation irrelevant. Incredible Bulk is a good way to unwind at the end of a long day or week, whether you’re alone or with a small group of friends. Because of its sleepy vibes, this strain is best enjoyed at night.
Incredible Bulk’s sedative properties may also have value for medical cannabis patients. It can temporarily improve the acute symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. It may also dull physical pain, whether chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis, or minor, like headaches. Under the right circumstances, the strain can even work against insomnia. Because it is not likely to induce paranoia through recursive, cerebral thinking, Incredible Bulk is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Fortunately for home growers, seeds of Incredible Bulk are available for sale online. It is considered an easy grow, resistant to all kinds of variables like temperature variation and changes in nutrient levels. The strain can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation requires a semi-humid climate with temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Incredible Bulk flowers within 8 weeks when grown indoors and offers a staggeringly high yield of anywhere from 56 to 93 grams (2 to 2.2 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
Enjoy this exceptional bud as a way to bask in luxurious relaxation. Be careful if you’re toking outdoors or in public, though, as Incredible Bulk’s pungency can easily attract unwanted attention.
