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 wonder

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 of Ph problems throughout 30% of the grow, and a fungus gnat problem.

Out of 10 seeds, only 3 were female. A couple were hermies, and the rest were males. Despite sufficient lighting, the size of the plants ended up being about 3 and a half feet tall, with thick resinous bud sites. (If you happened to brush up against a bud, your skin would feel stick afterwards.) The plants visually looked beautiful, and the final bud produced did as well. Those 3 females produced around 3.5 ounces altogether.

The bud is light, airy, bud very resinous, and burns much cleaner and clearer than run of the mill stuff. The high itself starts off in sativa fashion with a head rush, but later fades to couchlock in the later part of the high - especially if you are just sitting around and not doing anything.

Over all excellent quality. I would grow this strain again.

My grow was done in a closet: 25 square feet, walls lined with mylar and 450w HPS light suspending from clothes rack. In the beginning there were 10 plants, and they all fit in there nicely. (It looked like a miniature forest in there.)

The seedlings started out in small containers and were later transplanted to 3 gallon ones into plain potting soil. I made the mistake of not sterilizing the soil and this is how the fungus gnat infestation occurred. I watered once every 3 or 4 days with a thorough soaking, and fertilized once a week with Pure Blend Pro. The initial lighting time was 16 hours per day, and then 12/12 for budding. The plants flowered for 60 days as per the recommendation of Nirvana.
