A hybrid of Lemon Thai and Snow Lotus gave rise to Buddha’s Hand, an evenly balanced Runtz strain. Buddha’s Hand contains an effective THC level of around 12%-16%. Despite usually being balanced, this strain can be Indica or Sativa dominant depending on the breeder’s practices. I recommend eating a mango before smoking as it has the dominant terpene, myrcene. Mangos have a lot of myrcene, which helps you absorb the THC from this strain and strengthens its effects.
The Buddha’s Hand buds are absolutely stunning and beautifully trimmed into cone-shaped flowers. This is a fun bud to look at and is one of the best-looking buds I purchased. The cone-shaped flowers are paired with tons of crystals and Its buds are oversized. This Runtz strain usually consists of large forest green nugs with sparse orange hairs and trichomes that shimmer all over the bud.
Buddha’s Hand has a delightful smell that isn’t gassy like other Runtz strains. The citrus notes are moderately strong with an earthy, savory undertone in the back. Furthermore, it also has a mellow lemon scent with a sweet fruity effect. I find this to be one of the most pleasant-smelling Runtz strains.
Terps Terps Terps!! Buddha’s Hands has a robust citrus/pine flavor that dominates the bowl, providing an incredibly pronounced taste. You’ll also taste a fruity floral flavor with hints of pineapple and lemon. Wildflowers and pungent kush also contribute to the taste, tying it all together beautifully. This is a long-burning Runtz Strain and smoking it is pretty enjoyable. There’s a good chance you’ll get cotton mouth when smoking Buddha’s Hands. So have a drink nearby
This Runtz strain leaves you feeling energetic and very clear-headed. While Runtz strains are known for strong weed, Budda’s Hand will put you at peace. This Runtz strain provides stress relief without exerting too much energy. Buddha’s Hand is the perfect companion to have during the day when moods need to be lifted or focus is required. I use it to feel super relaxed while at the same time having the motivation to deal with chores. It’s the perfect choice for those suffering from insomnia, pain, and needing a strong muscle relaxant thanks to its dominant terpene: Myrcene. Buddha’s Hand has only two negative effects: dry mouth and dry eyes.
If you are interested in growing Buddha’s Hand, it’s an easy plant to grow. Buddha’s Hand’s lanky structure can sometimes make it appear fragile, but in the end, it’s remarkably sturdy. Growing Buddha’s Hands outside wouldn’t be a problem since it can withstand a lot of environmental conditions. The less compact structure allows for better airflow, which makes it more resistant to humidity. Since the moisture is dried quickly, mold and mildew rarely form. Growing Buddha’s Hands indoors may present some problems, since it may have to be topped a bit early. In other words, its height can easily get out of control when being grown indoors with limited vertical space. Wide spaces provide better airflow but light can sometimes be blocked from reaching the lower branches. Also, it’s crucial to remove all dead parts from the plant and thin it out to ensure the light from the main source is evenly dispersed. If you are a beginner, this is a great Runtz strain to grow.
