Barney’s Farm has won many international awards for the flawless quality and stability of its products and is a recognised world leader in the production of top quality seeds.

Barney’s Farm was founded since the early 1980’s after Derry settled in the Himalayas where he honed his knowledge by selectively breeding various strains, choosing phenotypes for their taste, aroma and THC levels.

Derry collected a variety of land-race cannabis seeds from countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Tibet, Thailand, Burma, Vietnam and China. After hand picking the most promising seeds they were then back-crossed in order to stabilise them.

Today Barney’s Farm is the team of experienced breeders, who collected landrace genetics from around the world. This enables Barney’s Farm Research Lab to create the best and rarest cannabis strains and makes Barney’s Farm the leader in the production of top quality female cannabis seeds.

The sweet aroma of fruit/berry is undeniable as soon as the jar is opened. These crystal covered buds pack enough of a punch that I would recommend anyone who isn't a heavy smoker.. to use this before bed or when you want to binge watch netflix for 2-3 hours. Great smoke.

This is a Laughing Buddha clone. All my Laughing Buddha genetics come from Barney’s Farms, basically all from one seed that has been cloned and monster cloned, and its clones cloned, etc. Laughing Buddha gives you vigorous growth, and huge swelling buds. It is consistently my top yielding strain - so that is a perk. It is majority sativa with a long recommended flowering time (10 weeks) so patience is required. I harvested this plant partway through the ninth week. It takes many nutrients and has good vegetative growth.

A delayed and long stretch period but then bud explosion quickly to follow. The smell during growing is sort of fuel like, not my favourite, but still intriguing. The size of the buds combined with the resin/trichomes will be mesmerizing. Near the end many of the buds were horizontal from the weight.

Everything went well with this grow and harvest. The taste came out very strong of a sour fuel (not sour diesel!!), maybe a bit pine? I find this strain hard to nail down in terms of taste.

Other than yield, the effects are what shine with Buddha. This is a strong sativa! I would say my rating is actually a 9.5, it is just that I prefer the concussive indica effects - otherwise perfect.

Grow this strain!

:point_right:The Good:yum:

Miss Monk has been a hell of a fun girl to grow, she has grown big fat colas with big fat buds. She if very pungent in smell with a very papaya tone to her while growing.

Now that she is dried and 1 month cured I can tell you she still has retained that tropical papaya smell to her with some backup notes for sweet and fruity.

Vaping her I find the taste to be on the Earthy and Pine side with just the lightest hint of a little skunk. It’s very pleasant and nice, but the fruity sweet tones weren’t there in the vape and that’s ok. Some of the other fruity and sweet weed out there get tiring and overbearing after a couple days. Having an earthy pine taste to her makes her a bit more “classic” and it’s a taste that is nice long term day in and day out.

Her effects have changed a lot in the last month. Smoking her right after she dried vs a month into cure is 2 very different experiences. Right after we she finished drying, she was peaky in the high, very energetic, and was very hard to sleep on. Now that we are a month in the cure she has mellowed out a lot. The high is more blunt, last longer, and very smooth. She still a sativa and she’s not going to couch lock you, but she makes you want to do more creative or interactive activates like reading a book, drawing, playing an instrument, or video games. Now that she is cured I can also sleep on her, she won’t really put you to sleep but she will let you and will give you nice creative dreams.

Barney’s Farm lists her as an 80% Sativa, and I’m not use if it’s just my pheno but I would have rated her more along the 60% Sativa scale. She is still talkative, engaging, and interactive, but it’s more like a nice coffee house high with your friends, or it’d be awesome to smoke during a night of billiards.

:point_right:The Bad:worried:

I had some excess heat issues in the grow room, and my Funny Monk really didn’t like the excess heat. Now keep in mind this is 28-30C at the hottest points, the excess heat was just that, excess, it wasn’t extreme. Miss Monk had taco’ing leaves fairly badly, she also produced ~5 bananas across the entire plant that I found. I marked the cola’s that I found banana’s on and kept them separate for me to smoke first. I can tell you that I have yet to find a seed and that makes me very happy.

:point_right:Harvest In Numbers:pray:

450w LED above her (From the wall)
7.53 sq.ft (0.7 sq.m)

2,137 g (75.38 oz) Wet Total
452.5 g (15.96 oz) Dry Total

21.2% Net dry weight

23 weeks growing

1 week drying = 24 weeks total

452.5 g / 24 weeks = 18.85 g / week (0.67 oz /week)

452.5 g / 47 branches = 9.63 g / branch (0.34 oz / branch)

452.5 g / 450 watts = 1.01 g / watt

452.5 g / 0.7 sq.m = 646.4 g / sq.m

Miss Laughing Buddha was in her own ~2’x4’ measuring it out it’s a little under that so I used 0.7 sq.m or 15.1 sq.ft as the actual size.

I used a max of 450w during flower, but with the heat issues I was having (due to the 30 C outside temps) she only had 450w for about ~2 weeks of flower. The rest of the time the LED light power was below 450w and I’d say the majority of the time she only got around ~300w of power. However I’m going to use the 450w for the calculation as that is the peak that she received.

Barney’s Farm quotes her as 600 g/sq.m and she outperformed that with 646.4 g/sq.m showing that their estimate is well within reason.

She produced 1 g/watt and I consider that a very conservative estimate since most of the time she was down around the 300w range. If I did the numbers with 300w she’d be up in the 1.5 g/watt area, I think the truth for this girl is somewhere between those two numbers.

21.2% net dry is prefect for this girl, it’s right in the sweet spot that I usually see.

A very impressive (especially with the long flower time of her at 73 days) of 18.85 g/week growing.

:point_right:Final Thoughts:point_left:

I think one of the reasons why my girl has come out more on the “relaxing” end and not as much on the “energetic” side is because of her ripeness when harvesting. She ripened more then I think I was supposed to let her. She had tons of amber through her trichomes, just riddle with them, and I think that is why she more on the relaxing end. Not sure shy she ambered in so fast and dense, but I don’t regret it one bit. I have lots of energetic sativas and I really like her mellow side to her, it’s still happy, active, and engaging but her mellow side makes her great for an engaging in evening with friends. A very very nice sativa that has the relaxing effects that I love after a long week of work.

I’m giving her a 9/10, I think she is near perfect but I’m deducting 1 point for the sensitivity to the heat that she showed.

I would definitely recommend anyone to give her a grow, she is very easy to grow and will make you feel like a superstar with the yields and quality that she produces. I’ll be growing her again in the future and I’ll be growing her during the winter so I can control the temps more easily.

Not sure if I’ll send her to a lab for testing or not. I’ll update with the results if I send her to the lab.
