No, Blue Buddha, not sure what it's crossed with - look it up. I think the seed bank is called BCBud Depot. It's 70 percent indica and 30 percent sativa, just the way I like it. Short bushy stature, with lengthy internodes. It's suppose to yield 5 ounces per plant, given the proper conditions. Curing, what can I say, one must properly dry their herb first, that's really where all the taste comes from - kinda like a nice wine. If it dries too fast, then the chlorophyll is stuck in the outer cells, thus leaving you with the hay smell and taste. You need to cure your herb for the final drying process and at this point, you can usually ad an orange peel in the mason jar. But you must be careful, too much moisture will leave you with moldy bud. Yes it does, if you don't have the proper conditions going, such as heat and humidity, you can damage your bud. The hotter it gets, the more the trichomes/THC are damaged. Also, you can't let your harvest receive any light. Break any of those rules and you got yourself some shitty herb.
