This strain was created in the mid 1990s by what was then known as The Seed Bank (which is a grower that now goes by the moniker Sensi Seeds). Grown from the Afghani landrace strain, Garlic Bud has a strong herbal and spicy scent that may remind users of its name. The pungent nature of its smell, though, makes this strain one to be avoided by users who like to keep their marijuana affiliation private. Its effects, as an indica, include full body relaxation that is good for dealing with persistent pain. However, it can lead to sedation and is best used at night.
