What’s more, the Laughing Buddha can also be enjoyed solo as it could encourage free-flowing creativity and inspiration. Once the intensive cerebral effects ease down, the indica-high makes its presence known in the guise of complete physical relaxation. But unlike other typical indicas, the Laughing Buddha strain does not physically relax to the couch lock point but keeps an energetic yet stress-free vibe.
Whether users engage with Laughing Buddha during the day or night, this strain is enjoyed by legal users around the world. If you walk into almost any coffee shop in Amsterdam, you will see Laughing Buddha sitting pretty on their menu, usually right by Amnesia (another incredibly delicious Sativa seed strain). It is excellent for a solo session, a social setting, or even getting immersed in nature. The Laughing Buddha should be on your shopping list.
The Laughing Buddha seed strain is a quick onset, and people often initially feel pressure around the eyes and temples. The initial effects can be mildly disorientating, as some users have described a feeling of being off-balance, altered perception, and feeling incredibly captivated by external stimuli. Some users report that whatever is viewed or heard can take on intensity, and some even experience mild visual distortions. This initial experience usually gently gives way to a relaxed, stress-free state. As the body and mind begin to lean into relaxation, the tension dissipates, and space is created for a euphoric, giddy, and happy high. Despite being a potent sativa, anxiety and panic are not often reported. The feeling is more friendly and sociable, and the Laughing Buddha is an ideal strain for acquaintances to become friends and friends to become family. This strain will make even the grumpiest person smile.
The Laughing Buddha is known to be a potent strain, but don’t take it too seriously- its called the Laughing Buddha for a reason.

Typical Plant Characteristics
Laughing Buddha is arguably the best strain you probably haven’t heard of. Until now.
We can say many things about this strain, but if you want the short and sweet conclusion, add it to your collection today. Why? Well, let’s see why…
Dutch cannabis breeders from Barney’s Farm created this strain as well as other heavyweights in the cannabis realm, including Tangerine Dream and Blue Cheese.
Laughing Buddha: The Roots
Cannabis is still heavily restricted in the UK. There are, however, a handful of legal growers in the country. Legal cultivators find that the Laughing Buddha strain has unique characteristics as it develops into a mature plant. Laughing Buddha seeds tend to grow into spindly plants with tapered bud structures. This characteristic is reminiscent of its Jamaican roots. The flowers develop in elongated forms, instead of the more typical spheres. If you look closely at the beautiful buds developing, you will notice the opaque white trichomes that develop on the elongated buds. The flowers will start to look icy as if covered in frost. The leaves of the Laughing Buddha tend to remain a dull green, almost yellow color and will usually have a fluffy texture.
Now that we have described the smell of Laughing Buddha in great depth, you are probably wondering how it tastes after all those descriptive smells. Well, the Laughing Buddha is a smooth smoke and offers a lemon and herb taste.
