B-52 is an old-school strain created by crossing two renowned Skunk strains, viz. Skunk #1 and Big Bud. Growers can expect some big yields from short-flowering and easy to grow plants. A perfect beginner's strain. B-52 is a compact, indica-dominant plant with short inter-nodal spacing. It does well both topped and fimmed, the latter a technique in which around 75% of the tip is removed causing multiple colas to grow where previously only one did. After 9 weeks of flowering plants are 125 - 150 cm. tall and can produce as much as 500 - 550 gr/m2. Buds grow plump and dense with a sticky coat of resin against which bright orange pistils stand out. B-52 stinks just like old-fashioned Skunk weed so get your carbon filters working well! Powerful dank and sour scents and an 18% THC content deliver and initial uplifting, cerebral effect which quickly transforms into an altogether heavier, physical sensation. Therapeutic consumers may well find help with symptoms of stress, headaches/migraines, muscle cramps and joint pains. Insomnia is less likely to be an issue as tensions and anxiety melt away.
