The buds on Laughing Buddha are hefty and large, however, they are definitely more long than they are fat. Her pale green buds are made to look even paler, by the work of the generous coating of trichomes that cover this flower.

However, after I bust up my nug, my nose is dominated by the smell of sweet mango, which gives a hint that this strain may also come with some very relaxing properties. A look into the Laughing Buddha terpene profile shows that it is indeed heavily dominated by myrcene, then caryophyllene, with smaller amounts of limonene, linalool, humulene, ocimene, and pinene.

The effects from Laughing Buddha start out as an instant mood uplift, with happy and euphoric sensations. These feelings will bring an involuntary smile to my face, or make me very giddy and talkative in the company of others.

Higher doses of this relatively potent strain will tend to produce psychedelic effects, visual distortions, or intense auditory experiences. Although, after some time, all else will give way, to eventually take me into deep serenity and internal focus. In general, Laughing Buddha produces more of a mental uplift, than a physical sense of energy, and so, is ideal for calm settings or engaging social situations. …Continue reading on the Strain Blog…
