Puna Budder is a potent hybrid crossed from Hawaiian sativa and Afghani indica landrace strains. This strain was originally discovered in Puna, a region of the archipelago’s big island of Hawa’i. With such prestigious genetics in its background, it’s no wonder that this legendary strain offers a rich aroma and balanced, long-lasting effects. Puma Budder’s THC content has been measured at between 19% and 22%.
Puma Budder is known for producing large impressive flowers that adhere in roughly spherical formations; some phenotypes of the strain are more pointed, with spade-like buds. These flowers appear more indica-influenced on first glance, clinging together tightly in compact and dense buds. The olive green leaves curl tightly inward toward their central stems and are twisted through with brown and orange pistils. Finally, cloudy white trichomes cover the inner and outer nooks and crannies of these nuggets, giving them a very sticky texture and making them difficult to break up without a grinder.
When these buds are properly cured, they give off a sweet, earthy scent that mingles musk with the fragrance of cedar. On closer inspection, there’s also a less pleasant sour smell that’s almost like rotting or fermenting organic matter. Grinding up buds of Puna Budder yields some pungent hints of skunk.
The smoke is better suited for water-pipe as it is typically dense and harsh, acrid smoke that’s liable to tickle smokers’ sinuses and trigger coughing fits. On the exhale, this thick smoke tastes simultaneously sweet and woodsy.
Puma Budder takes effect relatively quickly, exerting a throbbing pressure around the lower forehead and temples. Puma Budder’s brainy energy can provide a welcome and self-sustaining distraction for those who have to endure such menial tasks as work or social status.
As this strain’s high wears on or as dosage is increased, feelings of physical relaxation may gradually set in, with a tingle trickling down the spine and gradually spreading outward through the core and limbs. Thought not knocked out or incapacitated, smokers may find themselves less willing to engage in demanding duties. This eventual balance of mental and physical stimulation makes this a friendly social strain, sparking free-flowing conversation and good vibes wherever it happens to pop up.
Puma Budder can also have many applications for medical cannabis patients. The focused mental energy that comes with its onset can be of use to those with attention deficit disorder, helping them to focus on a single task. The strain can also help patients suffering from stress or depression to spend their time more mindfully and consciously.
Puma Budder can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation typically needs a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70* and 80* Fahrenheit. These short, bushy plants typically flower within a brief 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and are ready for harvest in late September when grown outdoors in the North or late April when grown in the Southern hemisphere.
This fruity, potent bud is a pleasant surprise for sativa and indica lovers alike. If you break it out in genial social situations, be prepared for this tropical treat’s signature aroma to draw some attention.
