Big Bud XXL Auto is actually based not on Big Bud, but on OG Kush and an unknown Ruderalis. Even though its parentage might comes as a surprise, it produces very respectable yields for an automatic and so can be considered worthy of the “Big Bud” name.
Although 13% THC is considered on the moderate side by modern standards, it’s still enough to provide an appreciable level of pain relief. As well as lift your mood without drawing you into a full-on high. The real attraction of this strain is the CBD content. Which pulls you into the relaxing embrace of a deep, full-body stone. As such, Big Bud XXL Auto is best kept for use at night and is very popular as an insomnia treatment.
This strain needs a total growing time of about 9 to 10 weeks. It’s worth remembering that although Big Bud XXL Auto has good resistance to mould, diseases and pests, it still prefers growing locations which are warm, dry and sunny. Outdoor growers in wetter climates will need to make sure that their plants are kept well out of the rain or could look at splitting the difference with a greenhouse grow. Indoor growers will be pleased to hear that this strain is reasonably compact. With a growing range of about 80 cm (indoor minimum) to 1.5 m (outdoor maximum). Indoors Big Bud XXL Auto can produce up to 400g/m2. Outdoors it can produce up to 150g per seed.
Big Bud XXL Auto is a good choice for beginners, because it produces substantial yields. It can also tolerate a bit of unintended abuse by people who’re still learning their way around a marijuana plant. It could also be a good option for people with more growing experience but want big buds fast!
Since Big Bud XXL Auto actually has completely different genetics from the original Big Bud, it probably won’t come as much of a surprise that the taste is also different. For the most part, it’s a balance of skunk pungency and kush spiciness. But there’s a touch of pine freshness to it as well. The aroma reflects the taste pretty accurately and is rich, warm and complex.
