Bigfoot Glue, also known as Big Foot Glue or BFG, is a potent sativa-leaning hybrid that imparts a heady dose of stimulation and energy. Whether you’re looking to tame the symptoms of stress or anxiety or simply engage in a little outdoor discovery, the Glue strain is one you’ll want to keep in your back pocket.
Bigfoot Glue’s Genetics, Cannabinoids, and Strain Effects
If you’re interested in how cannabis can support our bodies and minds, you’re probably aware that one of the most common reasons people turn to cannabis is to address anxiety, a syndrome that currently affects over 40 million American adults, nearly 20% of the adult population. And while there’s a healthy debate as to whether or not cannabis reduces anxiety or stimulates it, a good deal of anecdotal evidence suggests that sativa and sativa-leaning strains such as the Bigfoot Glue strain tend to have an energizing effect, they can help reduce the symptoms of anxiety and stress, especially when used in moderation.
Like all strains of cannabis, Big Foot Glue works on our bodies and minds through its cannabinoids, a family of natural compounds that includes THC and CBD. THC, in addition to imparting most of the euphoric and pleasant experience cannabis is known for, is responsible for other benefits, including helping reduce pain and inflammation.
How potent is Bigfoot Glue? The strain contains an average of 23% THC, making it moderately potent. Especially if you’re looking to address anxiety, it’s good to be aware that too much THC tends to stimulate anxiety rather than diminishing it.
Where did the Bigfoot OG strain originate? According to its original cultivator, Humboldt Seed Company, its “parent strains” include:
- Humboldt Headband: A creative spin on the classic Headband strain, this version blends strong indica genetics for a pleasurable and uplifting body high that can relieve aches and pains.
- G.G. #4: Also commonly known as Gorilla Glue #4 or Original Gorilla Glue, this classic strain is known for its potential to induce deep relief. As an indica-leaning hybrid, consumers report that GG4 makes them feel euphoric, sleepy, and highly relaxed.
BFG’s Terpenes, Aromas, and Flavors
On top of its energizing cerebral effects, Big Foot Glue is noted for its delicious flavors and aromatics, carrying flowery, nutty, and sweetly fruit-kissed notes. This is largely due to its terpene profile, which includes:
- Linalool: Floral, spicy, and relaxing, we all know linalool as the dominant terpene in lavender
- Pinene: Pinene is the fresh, woodsy, and invigorating terpene that may bring to mind the scent of a pine forest
- Humulene: This terpene is one you’ll also find in hops, offering a woodsy, earthy, and herbaceous note to this strain
- Myrcene: A complex blend of musk, spice, and fruit, myrcene is the most common terpene found in cannabis
Terpenes are the essential oils found in cannabis, and they are one of the most abundant natural compounds on the planet, adding flavor and scent to trees, plants, spices, and even some insects and animals. In the world of cannabis, they’re primarily associated with giving different cannabis strains their distinctive flavors and aromas. But as a growing body of clinical research suggests, terpenes impart important therapeutic benefits as well.
Myrcene, for instance, has been shown to have potential analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anxiolytic (or anxiety-reducing) effects. Linalool—in addition to imparting a refreshing lavender-like aroma—demonstrates a positive effect on depression and anxiety, among other neurological benefits. And the bright and citrusy limonene may help lift mood and reduce stress.
The Big Foot Glue Strain: Growing Info
According to cultivators, the Bigfoot Glue strain is capable of producing so much sticky resin it can be physically difficult to prune! Naturally resistant to mold and mildew, it’s a good strain for novice growers to try their hand at. Whether grown indoors, outside or in a greenhouse, the flowering time is roughly 60 days. With reasonable care, growers can expect yields of 1 – 2 oz per foot outdoors and 400 mg of dried flower per indoor-grown plant.
