Rose Bud, also known as “Rosebud,” is a rare indica dominant hybrid strain with unknown genetics due to a high level of breeder secrecy about its heritage. This bud may have gotten its name from its appearance or its smell.
Rose Bud buds have long tapered minty green nugs with fluffy spots that look almost like roses coated with sandy crystal trichomes. As you break apart each frosty little nug, you’ll release fresh flowery scents accented by rich spices and rose. The flavor is very sweet with an herbal rose overtone that is light and airy.
The Rose Bud high is very mellow as well, with effects that are best suited for kicking back during a lazy afternoon. You’ll feel a slight lift at the onset of the high that pulls your mind up into a state of focus and creativity. This is accompanied by a building sense of pure bliss that works its way throughout your entire body, pulling you into a lightly relaxing state that won’t cause any couch-lock or sleepiness. Thanks to these effects and its moderate 10-14% average THC level, Rose Bud is often chosen to treat conditions such as muscle spasms or cramps, chronic pain, depression, chronic stress, and inflammation.
