The genetic mix of a Hawaiian landrace, Purple Skunk and a Canadian strain known as God was reproduced by Canadian outfit BC Bud Depot under the name BC God Bud. However, despite its popularity, there are too few examples of this proud flower in its home country’s legal market.

BC Bud Depot developed CBD God after finding a God Bud phenotype with four percent CBD. That was pollinated with a male Harlequin plant, a popular CBD-producing specimen, and in 2014, High Times named CBD God one of its top strains.
RedeCan staged a voluntary recall of one lot of its B.E.C. strain in response to multiple complaints of mould, despite using irradiation in its growing process, and third-party lab-testing before the product ships. God Bud wasn’t included in the recall.
The popular hybrid, God Bud, comes to us from Jordan of the Islands, who describes the strain as “an amped-up Purple Skunk from the West Coast Islands of Canada.”
The strain won first place for an Indica category at the 2004 High Times Cannabis Cup. God Bud weed is considered more of a hybrid because its genealogy includes some “sativa” roots, but its reported effects skew toward the sedative.
RedeCan has greenhouse-grown God Bud on the market, which the Ontario Cannabis Store lists at $8.62 to $10.06 per gram, available in one, 3.5, seven and 15 g portions of dried flower. Lift & Co. describes this iteration as having medium THC potency (13 to 21 percent), low CBD (one percent) and an “herbal, musky flavour combined with tropical fruit and undertones of berry, lavender and pine.”
Canadian patients who love the strain should know that Beleavehas a version with seven to 10 percent CBD that the company describes as “euphoric and relaxing.”
God Bud is a fragrant hybrid with genetics bringing forth a terpene profile that reviewers regularly describe as being a mix of earthy (skunk) and tropical (Hawaiian). Grown in the right conditions—low humidity with a slightly cooler temperature—the flowers can be a colourful mix of green, copper and purple. But one of the more remarkable characteristics of God Bud is its impressive resin production.
