Strain of the Week: Buddha’s Sister




The core values of Buddhism revolve around suffering. It’s said that the founder of Buddhism, Siddhartha Gautama, connected suffering to all walks of life while he wandered the world in search of understanding. Siddhartha was a prince and a member of a rich family, but he renounced his title and became a monk instead. Many people practice Buddhism to this day, in order to reach a better understanding of the world. Through Noble Eightfold Path (Noble Eightfold Path. The steps of the Noble Eightfold Path (Right Understanding, Right Thought, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness and Right Concentration) help Buddhists achieve an end to suffering—and we know a little something that could help them out.

A strain called Buddha’s Sister doesn’t have any relevance in terms of Siddhartha/Buddha actually have a sibling, but it does offer an explanation to its genetic history. It’s the result of Reclining Buddha and Afghan Hawaiian. Unsurprisingly, both of these parent strains are heavy indicas. Reclining Buddha is almost all indica and assists consumers to engage in relaxing moments at home. Afghan Hawaiian is an indica-dominant hybrid that, aside from its delicious licorice and caramel flavors, produces high amounts of euphoria. Together, they create a powerhouse strain that is necessary for any and all lovers of indica types.

Buddha’s Sister is a beautiful strain. It’s dense and forest green leaves thickly cover up a wealth of red-haired nugs. Its flavor and effects are also beautiful! It has a unique flavor profile, offering the lemony citrus and spice similar to a breakfast tea that you might find in India.

Our sample was a 100 percent indica that is also high in CBD. It’s the kind of strain that medical patients will always have in their arsenal, thanks to its ability to temporarily reduce pain to nothing at all. Somehow, it has the ability to specifically focus this effect on the head, shoulders, back and legs. However, any consumer who plans to meditate or try yoga could also benefit from the unique properties that Buddha’s Sister provides.
