Bruce Banner is one of the hardest-hitting cultivars in existence. With as much as 30% THC, it comes storming in with a potent cerebral high and a heavy-yet-mellow body buzz. Carmen, on the other hand, has low THC levels but plenty of CBD and a delicious flavor profile to boot. Crossing these two gave rise to a fantastic hybrid with a tamer psychoactive influence and heaps of medicinal potential.
With a 1:1 THC to CBD ratio, Electric Bruce is a popular choice for medicinal patients and those who want to have a good time without getting too smashed. It retains many of its parents’ exceptional qualities – including intense flavor and aroma, prolific resin production, impressive yields and potent medicinal properties – minus the overwhelming THC potency. It still brings the same creative streak and uplifting energy that made Bruce Banner so famous, albeit at a more manageable level.
This Indica-leaning hybrid is highly sought-after but quite difficult to find in dispensaries, so those who want a constant supply are better off cultivating it at home. Homegrown Cannabis Co. offers Electric Bruce Feminized in feminized seed form. Aside from being an easy-to-grow cultivar, it also ensures an all-female turnout 99% of the time.
Electric Bruce Feminized is quite easy to cultivate, even for beginners. It does not have any special requirements in terms of nutrients or rearing practices: all it asks for is a suitable environment with comfortably warm temperatures (69 to 78°F) and optimal RH levels (40 to 50%).
Growing it indoors is pretty straightforward. It stretches to between 3 and 5 feet tall, so it doesn’t take up much vertical space. Growers still need to make sure that there is adequate distance between the grow lamps and the canopy, which doubles in height as it approaches the flowering phase. When pressed for space, a combination of pruning and the Sea of Green technique is ideal for curbing its upward growth. Such methods also bolster productivity, increasing the output come harvest time. Use 600-watt HPS/LED lamps combined with either organic soil or hydroponics, and each square foot can produce 1.63 ounces of resinous nugs after 7 to 9 weeks of quick flowering.
Going al fresco is also an enticing option if the weather is warm and sunny. Out in the open, each plant stretches to between 4 and 7 feet tall, producing about 21 ounces of succulent buds by the second week of October.
This cultivar’s freshly cured buds emit a potpourri of spicy, earthy and diesel scents blended with sweet and citrusy notes. The taste complements the sophisticated aroma, delighting the palate with a sweet, fruity flavor reminiscent of mandarins and tangerines.
Those expecting a mind-bending high because of Bruce Banner’s contribution to this hybrid are better off sampling other cultivars. While it certainly bears Bruce Banner’s genes, the beastly psychoactive effects have been drastically tempered down by Carmen’s enormous CBD levels. Instead of sending you into cerebral overdrive, it brings a mild but very pleasant clear-minded high. It also inspires focus and motivation along with a creative boost, which makes it an ideal companion when checking tasks off the job list and brainstorming for new ideas.
Electric Bruce Feminized also offers a relaxing finish that soothes stress and muscle tension. Although it’s not potent enough to cause couch-lock, it nevertheless induces blissful relaxation that can help you maintain a calm disposition.
A 10% THC mark is considered meager by the current standards. Despite such low levels, sticking to moderate doses is the best way to go. Otherwise, there’s a slim chance that it might trigger mild anxiety or paranoia.
Despite lacking the out-of-this-world cerebral high Bruce Banner is so loved for, this hybrid is adored for its astounding CBD levels. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea due to its low THC levels, but it’s a go-to cultivar for those seeking potent therapeutic effects. Growing these feminized Electric Bruce Feminized seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. is also effortless, satisfying and rewarding – so there’s something here for everyone.
