This strain, also known as Ed Rosenthal Super Bud, is either a crossbreed of Big Bud and Skunk or a descendant of local landraces found in various tropical climes. Super Bud (aka SuperBud) has a sativa/indica ratio of 40:60, but it’s effective at any time of day. THC levels are fairly high, though not extreme, topping out at about 19% (some sources claim it’s as high as 18%, but that’s basically unverified nonsense). CBD levels, meanwhile, are quite low, less than 1%, so this isn’t a top choice for conditions that respond to that chemical. But it is effective in treating pain, lack of appetite, anxiety, nausea, and depression. Super Bud delivers a strongly euphoric high that spurs creativity, along with a pleasant body buzz that can help with sleep. Paranoia is the most common side effect, along with dry mouth and red eyes. There are few if any public reports on the taste and smell of this strain, while information about its appearance are similarly scarce. Super Bud isn’t a top choice much of anywhere, though it can probably be found in California. But don’t expect to see this relative rarity on the black market anytime soon.
