Big Foot: best of both indica and sativa
Big Foot is a hybrid cannabis strain. It is an even sativa-indica cross combining Hash Plant and Grimace genetics and is loved for its potency, unique effects, and exceptionally fast flowering period.
Big Foot’s effects bring together the best of both sativa and indica varieties. The high from this strain generally kicks off with a euphoric cerebral buzz typical of a sativa; think rapid-fire thoughts, plenty of energy, and an overall happy, slightly goofy mood. However, about halfway into the experience most users experience a slight shift into a more indica-like experience. This is usually characterized by deep body relaxation and an overall sense of calm. Some users find that the indica-like effects are more obvious in stronger doses while the sativa effects tend to come across in small-to-medium doses. This makes for an extremely versatile strain that can be enjoyed by both indica and sativa lovers. The average THC content of this strain can clock in at 22%.
Medical patients may turn to this strain from fast-acting relief from stress and anxiety or as a mood enhancer. Others might also find the physical effects useful in curbing pain. Larger doses with a more indica-like effect may also be useful in helping sooth symptoms of insomnia or other sleep-related issues.
Big Foot has a very complex aromatic profile. These buds usually give off a very potent smell that’s characterized by a sweet, slightly fruity aroma. Some users may also detect some light spicy undertones, or even hints of pine. The taste of this strain is usually dominated by sweet, fruity flavours.
Big Foot is a great strain for both novice and experienced growers. Plants can grow quite large with a strong main stem, a large number of lateral branches and short internodal distance. This variety lends itself well for both indoor and outdoor cultivation as long as it gets plenty of light and some decent, nutrient-rich soil. Indoor yields are high, averaging between 500-650g/m² and flowering time is usually about 9 weeks.
Big Foot buds are renowned for being extremely dense and covered in a thick layer of trichomes that can produce a very aromatic resin. The nuggets also tend to be lumpy and boast a deep, forest green colour and a generous sprinkle of orange pistils.
