Laughing Buddha
Resistance
Neutral
Growing it
Normal
This plant displayed the typical Laughing Buddha genetics: easy to grow, vigorous sativa, large yield. Overall, it is as I expected!

The individual plant came as a puny, little, malformed monster cropped clone. It resisted light damage early on and rebounded. It still reached a nice potential, though I wonder what it could have become had I not heavily defoliated and then lost leaves early in flower. I clearly created a nutrient imbalance to turn the leaves yellow, but Buddha normally takes lots of plant food.

I struggled to nail the taste down this time. It gives off a sweet, fuel like smell, but I find characterizing it as more elusive than my previous Buddha grows. I found the taste did not come out quite as much as my previous grow, likely on account of the restricted potential of the buds. I also suspect some of the dead trim that was hard to cut off also adds to its blandness. This was the major factor scoring this round as a 8/10, and the last Buddha plant as 9/10.

It is sativa dominant, nice and potent. No issues with the THC content with this individual plant, still a very nice product.

I still maintain that Barney’s Farm Laughing Buddha is an elite strain. All my grows (past, current, and future) have been from the lineage taken from one seed. The yield and strong sativa qualities are worth it!

Strawberry Cough
Resistance
Strong
Growing it
Normal
Strawberry Cough is definitely a recommendable strain. This particular plant bounced back from nighttime temperature issues and light damage to produce some beautiful, dense buds. Sweet, fruity smelling resin. No problems taking nutrients.

Mild to moderate sativa high with a nice smooth taste that isn’t fuel or pine-like; just pure strawberry. This is a strong mixer weed that pairs with anything.

I would for sure put Dutch Passion’s Strawberry Cough on a must-try list.

Black Indica
Resistance
Neutral
Growing it
Normal
This strain turns out to be a pretty good, modern indica with an above average yield compared to other indicas (other Crop King indicas). Its stretch period was quite unexpected and it seemed to swell nicely. Black Indica also had no troubles taking nutrients.

This plant suffered severe light damage early on, and had quite an extended vegetative stage. Black Indica bounced back faster that other Crop King indicas in the same conditions.

Growing was an absolute pleasure as the sweet bud smell was intoxicating. The final product puts off a sweet/sour vibe, but ultimately the flavour isn’t overpowering or notable. The effects are certainly indica but isn’t concussive in strength, most would opt for a sativa in this case. Potency seems to be a trade off for yield for this indica.

I’d recommend growing Black Indica, but I will continue to experiment with Crop King varieties. (It should be noted I have another Black Indica grow that may change my rating).
