Laughing Buddha Terpene Profile
Laughing Buddha aroma is candy-sweet and incredibly satisfying. The strain’s multi-faceted flavour profile combines sugary pineapple notes, pungent kush spice, skunk, and fruity, herbaceous hints that will send your tastebuds to a higher spiritual plane. Its sugary citrus taste is sure to bring a big smile to your face and, when consumed via a vaporizer or in the form of cannabis concentrates, its delicious flavours takes on an entirely different dimension.
Laughing Buddha dominant terpenes include limonene, alpha-pinene, and caryophyllene. Both limonene and alpha-pinene are thought to possess mood-elevating and stress-reducing effects. By altering dopamine levels and γ-aminobutyric acid in the body, these terps can actually help lower anxiety levels. They’re also believed to increase the effectiveness of THC via a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.
Laughing Buddha Strain Effects
As a 75% sativa strain, Laughing Buddha effects will influence your mood and mind far more than the body, but they also feature a powerfully relaxing indica edge. Highly suitable for sharing with like-minded spiritual adventurers, ready yourself for a laugh-filled, socially-enhanced cerebral experience. Great for daytime recreational enjoyment, this uplifting sativa high is paired with a meditative quality that’ll leave you feeling completely calm and zen but without the heavy sedative hit that often accompanies stronger cannabis strains.
Laughing Buddha THC content can range from 18-21%, depending on the cultivation methods used. It also boasts impressive CBD levels of around 1.6%, making it particularly useful for medical purposes. However, if you’re not used to potent sativa strains, this is one sacred herb that’s best avoided.

How to Grow Laughing Buddha Strain
Although a relatively easy-going cultivar, owing to its Jamaican hybrid and Thai origins, growing Laughing Buddha marijuana seeds in a warm and sunny environment will yield the best results. Indoor breeders should attempt to replicate these conditions to get the richest harvests, but those with smaller setups should be aware that these sativa-dominant plants can easily stretch up to 2.5-3.5ft in height. Growers can easily reduce height without sacrificing yield by encouraging lateral growth, and there are a variety of techniques — including FIM, LST and SCROG — that are designed for this exact purpose.
Laughing Buddha seeds will produce plenty of oval-shaped, forest green colas with brassy orange trichomes, and although the plant’s appearance may not be especially spectacular, Laughing Budda yields more than make up for the fact. Growers can expect decent harvests of around 450g per/m2 indoors or 600g if grown outside.
Like most sativa strains, a little patience will be required as these plants will take a little longer than average to reach their full potential. Laughing Buddha cannabis seeds flowering time is around ten weeks from germination and can be harvested in mid-October if you choose to grow directly in the ground.
