I can not say enough good things about this strain. I have been looking for a sativa for a while and have tried a dozen strains and i have found several i like, But Laughing Buddha checks all the boxes. It is an excellent daytime smoke, leaving you feeling creative and energetic. You immediately want to get up and start doing things. The THC content is very high and i find it gives me moderate relief from my peripheral neuropathy. The smoke is very smooth and the taste is fantastic, immediately recognizable sativa that has a sweetness to it.

A 10 star strain for me all day long
No shortage of newb mistakes with this grow, but i was able to respond and recovery. To list a few of those mistakes: I left them in the germination tray far too long. The first topping took off too much and i never gave them enough time to recover. I should have removed the small one early when it was clearly behind. I was slow to train the fastest growing nodes and a couple of my main nodes ended up below the canopy. I did not defoliate the upper fan leaves until late and the lower buds did not really start to grow untill i did. I over did it trying to go full strength with the nutes. I was slow to respond to the nute burn and did not correct the problem for a week. I am sure there are more than i am forgetting.
Despite my mistakes, i am very happy with the results. Once i dialed in my nutes, they absolutely loved the Advanced Nutrients lineup and they finished much stronger than i would have anticipated.

They hung for 3 1/2 days they went into Cvault 2L containers with boveda packs and got burped daily and the moisture level normalized after about a week, and i took my first taste after 11 days. First smoke of the day and i was shocked at how smooth and tasty it was already. The effects were immediate and fantastic. I keep burping the containers every few days and it just keeps getting better A++ smoke!
Big girl gave 205 grams and wimpy managed 11 grams giving me 7.7 ounces. Probably not enough for the time this grow took, but for the size of the tent i am every pleased with those results.

I am even more pleased with the quality and effect!

Thank you all for following along, Great community here on Growdiaries!! I have 2 new diaries started, so follow along and see if i can ramp up the mistakes to match the big new tent! And i am doing an outdoor coco coir grow, that one is just asking for me to screw it up LOL

Grow Questions
Cultus week 10 started grow question 3 years ago
I have a nutrient question. With full strength Advanced Nutrients Sensi Bloom should i still add Sensi Cal-Mag? Starting water is RO 5ppm. If yes, do I use full strength cal-mag or just add some to top off water? Or is full strength on both too much for those minerals?

DissNoof answered grow question 3 years ago
Hey Cultus, great questions ! You're right : for sure add the cal mag , the other nutrients dont really contain any micro/secondary nutrients that the calmag has. Second question : yes go full strength, dont worry : you cant really go overboard with the cal mag, at this stage it's very important to add micro nutrients because of the flower stretch and the flower and bud production use a lot of micro nutrients. Hope this helps ! :rocket:

Great job man! You did good and you will get better at this quickly. Your review of the smoke makes me really excited for mine to come off. BTW, those Cvault are really expensive and as you get better at growing you are going to need a lot more storage. Canadian Tire sells 1L glass mason jars 12 for $12, best deal I've found around. Jar them up and put them in a cardboard box in the basement for storage with 8g boveda packs. Use the Cvault containers for your upstairs stash and just refill them from the jars in the basement.

@NomNom, Thank you my friend! I really appreciate the support. Glad you have been following along.
You will love yours, i am sure of it. And as @Tazard wisely once said, don't harvest too soon!
The cvault are expensive, as any food grade stainless seems to be. But they are pretty awesome. I love the boveda holder built into the lid, and the 2L holds the large pack. Plus they are very wide mouth and shallow, so with 2 shakes i can rotate all the buds. And the bigger ones can be secured with a tamper proof ziptie to keep small fingers out. I have 4 of the 2L and a couple smaller ones for daily, but with the new tent i will prolly have to step it up. I will probably get a couple of the 8L which are $125. Definitely not cheap but a good investment i think, and when i think of all the pouches i no longer have to pay for it doesnt seem so bad! lol

Beautiful buds man! Love all the details you added as they'll also help me with my own grow.

Also I think I might giving a try to this strain after I use all the seeds I have. You're like the 2nd or 3rd person who has said some really good things about it!

GJ and congrats again! :smiley:
