Dispensary:  Four Twenty Thailand

Recommendation: 5 leaves

Laughing Buddha, a cross between Wild Thai and Jamaican (both landrace strains), is a strain which deserves to be treated with respect by its users, sellers and farmers. It is a serious sativa strain for users and patients who love and cherish cannabis.  The Laughing Buddha grown in house by the guys at Four Twenty is an excellent and high quality breed of the strain, with powerful and mature earthy and herby pungent odors and tastes which are all encompassing and enveloping.  

The effects of Laughing Buddha are immediate and positive: social, happy, euphoric, giggly (hence the laughing), and profound.  There is no trip with this bud, it does not veer off towards an indica direction, but rather stays the true and straight course of a sativa with a powerful head high. The mind is fully enhanced while the body, which will head out on adventure at the command of the mind, is left mostly untouched.

Laughing Buddha is a perfect strain for wandering aimlessly through a city, observing and moving on. Indeed, a kilometer walk down Asoke was both fascinating and incredibly enjoyable after I smoked this bud. The lights, sounds, smells, people, and breeze were all boosted and completely appreciated by your dedicated correspondent.

While not a beginner strain, it nonetheless can be introduced to those who are relatively new to cannabis but have a natural understanding and affection for bud. It is very much an OG strain and should be part of the cannabis canon: Mandatory education for anyone who appreciates cannabis. We at High Thailand fully recommend Laughing Buddha—it is a classic.
