One of the most popular strains in Canada, God Bud rose from the underground medical cannabis community to international acclaim when BC Bud Depot introduced her commercially in 2004. Taking 1st place at the High Times Indica Cup, then being named as High Times Top 10 strains the following year, God Bud deserves the acclaim. This strain offers a well-balanced high that comes on slowly with long-lasting effects. Users say God Bud not only lessens anxiety and depression but also addresses pain, eating and sleep disorders. Her flavors and aromas offer sweet overtones of berry and lavender along with a musky earthiness. Night time use in a quiet setting is recommended.

  • Indoor flowering time: 56-70 days
  • Indoor yield: 500 g/m2

Matt, the breeder for BC Bud Depot, says: “She’s a heavy feeder and can take longer to clone, but once you get it right, there’s no stopping her. Yields typically between two to four ounces per plant in indoor-production setups, and up to three pounds per plant outdoors in southern climates. From her density and stickiness to her aroma, taste and medicinal qualities, the God Bud is a connoisseur-grade indica that will leave everyone wishing for your stash.”


Optimal Environment: indoors or outdoors. Flowering: 9 weeks. High yielding. 120 to 130 cm tall. Loads of sticky resin. Superb taste and smell. THC Range: 20% and higher. Gardening Skills Required: novice.


This plant grows well indoors or out and is considered hardy by most. Because of its short 120cm height, it is often grown in hydroponic closets or small greenhouses as well. God Bud flowers for about 9 weeks with those heavy, thick buds. Yield: 500+ grams per plant.


BC God Bud is short, squat and dense, with plenty of silvery resin. While she does well outside in California, yielding up to 3 pounds per plant, she does not finish well as far north as British Columbia and is better for indoor cultivation in colder climates. Although BC God Bud can be hard on beginners, attentive growers will find this to be a hardy, pest resistant plant with leathery leaves and an appetite for nutrients. These plants require 8-10 weeks of flowering time to reach maturity. As the plants ripen, their dark greens turn to shades of purple, and a heady, almost high-inducing smell begins to fill the grow room, requiring some odor control precautions. These plants stay at the shortest end of the growth spectrum, reaching only 2-3 feet in height at harvest, with a bud production that can maximize smaller spaces. While the BC God Bud is not a single-cola plant, her side branching is minimal enough to make it a sea of green choice. Under these conditions, she can deliver a whopping 3-4 ounces of compact, sparkingly resinous buds per plant.

Additional Information

A BC Bud Depot Cannabis Cup Winner for World's Best Indica, the BC God Bud packs some of the most powerful aroma and flavor findable on Planet Earth. A popular plant among professional cash croppers, these very dense and heavy crystal-coated buds, flavor and accompanying high, make for outer-body experiences. A BC Bud Depot multiple award winner, this is the indica that brought the cup home to Canada.


Commercial growers prize indica varieties for their potency and big yields, but God Bud also has great flavor and aroma. Since winning the Best Indica–Seed Company award at the 2004 Cannabis Cup, this frosty selection (well-known in Vancouver) is getting its proper respect worldwide. The dense, crystal-coated BC God Bud has serious bag appeal and packs quite a punch.


God Bud is an Indica medical marijuana strain that is ideal for small grow spaces because of the fact that this plant is blessed with the ability to grow no taller than three feet. As an ideal strain for indoor growing, this form of medicine would typically flourish in an area that has a cooler climate than most. You will most definitely see this strain not surviving in a maritime tropical climate. Regarded as a patient's favorite, God Bud is known to have some flaring orange hairs, bright and rich trichomes and a glistening resin gland. It is easily recognized why this is named God Bud, as each and every bud is beautiful.


Claimed by the British Colombians, this is one of the most popular strains in Canada. It is a Cannabis Cup winner with a very smooth and classic taste and sweet, heavy aroma. God Bud is set apart from most by its dense buds with very heavy resin in white crystals.
