Indica-dominant Big Bang weed was created in the Netherlands by crossing the Skunk, Northern Lights and El Nino strains. The name is easily explained by its explosively fast-acting and powerful high. Its premium qualities were recognised in 2001 when it finished third overall in the High Times Cannabis Cup.
Big Bang’s bouquet and flavor have an underlying skunky theme overlaid with distinct notes of chocolate, fruit and flowers. The hit comes on quickly as a soaring high that is initially euphoric and then relaxing. This is more of a stay-at-home high than a party weed. Medical dispensaries recommend Bing Bang to combat stress and insomnia.
Indoors in pots, Big bang seeds grow wide rather than high with lots of bushy side stems, but planted outdoors it can reach two metres. Leaves are bright green and buds are smallish, dense and covered in short hairs. THC content ranges from 15 to 20 percent.
Big bang cannabis is a robust plant and it grows well indoors with the SOG method, benefiting from a generous supply of liquid nutrients. Flowering time is around nine weeks and yields can be as high as 800 grams per square metre.
Outdoors, the plant may need some support as it matures. Because of Big bang’s hardiness, it’s a good choice for outdoor growth if you live somewhere that has cooler summers. Make sure to plant it somewhere that gets as much sunshine as possible. Harvest comes in the first half of October in the northern hemisphere and each plant can yield up to one kilogram.
Experienced growers choose Big Bang weed because of its reliably high yields and for its legendary potency. It’s easy to grow, so beginners can give this one a try as well.
