The High:
I first smoked B-52 in Switzerland, the first impression was a lasting one. The high is not for the inexperienced. In Switzerland I found myself watching VH1's Best of the 80's, and completely bugged out, I curled up fetal position in my bed, too high to even pass out, heart racing wondering what the hell reefer I just smoked. I didn't smoke alot of it, I wasn't drinking... It was just really powerful.
Later I grew it out for myself and had similar experiences. The high goes very well with music, almost too well. There were many times where I would smoke a bong or two of B-52 and pop in my favorite MMW album, UnInvisible. Half the time I couldn't make it past track 7 before getting so deep into the music that it would freak me out and I would have to stop the CD.
If you smoke after 11pm, you probably won't fall asleep until 3am.

The Plant:
If you HATE manicuring, you will absolutely love this plant. The buds were perfect little nuggets that would just spiral up the colas. It took me less than 10 minutes to manicure the entire plants' harvest, no joke. All of the small leaves surrounding the bud were so covered in resin they were worth keeping.
The plant did stretch a fair bit, but it wasn't too bad. The colas just kept growing skywards until the day they got chopped.
Oh and the resin content of these buds was ridiculous. Put one small dime sized bud in an electric grinder separate the resin from the plant matter, and the ratio of resin to plant matter is just insane. Almost unnatural.
I only ended up with 1 female B-52. Some were killed by varmit, I gave some seeds away, and one went male. The female produced three branches at every node, so it was a bit of a freak. The yeild was not that great, but every single bud, even the smallest, was a keeper.

It's only $15 for 10 beans, you will NOT be disappointed.

I grew this strain side by side with my Pure Power Plant and have been putting off the grow report because I have had my B52 curing and now that I have it out and I'm smoking the good stuff I figure I will lend my report.

When I started this plant I had over 12 plants in veg and 6 were B52. I we

In this grow, two plants were nirvana Big Buds, and two were B-52s. the B-52 far exceeded the Big Bud in all areas except for numbers of buds.

Each B-52 had a small number of good sized buds, topped by one almighty cola, nestled in the middle of my scrog.

I was very impressed with the ease of this grow. From germination to harvest I didn't encounter a single problem other than one hermaphrodite which occurred too late into the flowering cycle to effect any of the other plants. This entire grow was conducted under a combination of soft white and warm ...continued

I bought the B52 seeds from SD shop when I was in a'dam. I was looking for some "not-too-expensive" type of sativa taste seeds. B52 (Nirvana) was on my list because of the good comments I read on this StrainGuide. Well, it turned out to be true. An excellent strain, well worth the $15 and doesn't se ...continued

This was a first time grow, so the efficiency of the garden wasn't that spectacular, however I will be making improvements for future grows.

B-52 was a good plant to start with, since it taught my valuable lessons both in regards to Sativa and Indica traits. I gave it an ease score of 7 because o
