We’re back at it again this week diving into a brand new strain to hit DC’s weed scene. Today’s review is on the Big Smooth strain, a rare 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid strain with a piney herbal flavor and tons of THC. Like many of the other strains we’ve been reviewing lately, Big Smooth promotes a generous cerebral lift before settling into the limbs, soothing your body into complete relaxed bliss. In the full strain profile and review below, we’re covering the ins and outs of the Big Smooth strain, including information on its lineage, phenotypes, smell, taste, effects, medical uses, and cultivation best practices.
Big Smooth: Background
The Big Smooth strain is an extremely flavorful cross between OG Blueberry and Cookies and Cream boasting unique vanilla, berry, and herbaceous pine flavors. It was first propagated by Exotic Genetix in an attempt to make an extremely flavorful strain that doesn’t lack in potency. And lack it doesn’t; the strain contains 20-26% THC on average, making it one of the most powerful strains on the market today. Its potency and unique blueberry pancake terps makes for powerfully uplifting cannabis medicine that can help improve moods and chase away aches and pains, making it a great choice for just about any time of day.
Big Smooth Cultivation
Growing the Big Smooth strain is rated as moderately difficult to grow. Like most exotic strains, it’s bred to dump THC and promote unique flavors, so it comes with a few minor quirks. Since the flowers are compact and dense, great care should be taken during her flowering cycle to ensure that humidity levels are normal to prevent mold and powdery mildew. The strain should also be topped and trained early on to promote the best plant distribution, allowing the colas to swell. It may also help to use a trellis netting to help support the massive flowers. Overall, the strain is pretty hardy though and will be ready for harvest in 55-65 days.

Big Smooth Appearance
Big Smooth plants are lovely, growing tall and lean with broad dark green water leaves. Her appearance is truly hybrid, displaying traits of both indicas and sativas. In the flowering cycle, she grows massive colas that are blanketed in a thick layer of trichomes. Each sticky little nug breaks away from the main colas, leaving behind fluffy but dense individual buds. Each one is a kaleidoscope of color, ranging from minty green to golden and forest green. The buds also have a healthy helping of vibrant orange pistils and a coating of crystalline trichomes throughout. The appearance is both natural and exotic as the green contrasts sharply against the white trichome blanket.
Big Smooth Scent, Flavor, and Effects
The Big Smooth strain is really named for its scents and flavors. The flavor is incredibly sweet and creamy, thanks to the cookies fam genetics that come from the Cookies and Cream parent strain. It has a nutty vanilla flavor on the inhale, leaving behind a rich creamy smoke that is mouth-wateringly smooth and pleasant. However, the strain becomes very inique in the exhale, leaving behind some notes of pine before being overwhelmed by a creamy blueberry flavor. Many people who have tried the Big Smooth strain compare it to blueberry pancakes or muffins with a notable hint of pine on the exhale.
The aroma is similar, though the natural notes are more obvious than the creamy vanilla notes. While Big Smooth flowers, scents of a bright herbaceous earthiness is the clearest depiction of the strain. However, more complex notes make an appearance as the strain dries. Dried flowers smell a lot like pine. When they’re agitated in a grinder, they release a variety of unique terps that give the buds a spicy citrus aroma with notable berry overtones. Big Smooth is different this way. In most exotic strains, the scent is the defining factor and the flavor is similar. With Big Smooth, the aroma is very different from the flavor. It’s a strain with a surprise inside.
Big Smooth is most interesting in its variety of effects though. The high is a bit of a creeper, starting you off with a very smooth, uplifted feeling. As this effect settles in, you’ll start to notice a soothing physical effect in the back of your eyes and neck before the strain roots in your limbs. This effect is incredibly relaxing, both in the mind and in the body leaving many users feeling notably uplifted, euphoric, and aroused, allowing the strain to fade way into a bright giggly feeling and deep physical relief. This can lead to a deep, peaceful sleep in higher doses.
Medical Uses of Big Smooth
Big Smooth offers an amazing blend of effects that have a ton of medical applications. These effects paired with higher than average levels of THC around 20-26% make for some of the best cannabis medicine you can find here in DC. The mental effects make this strain a great choice if you’re combatting symptoms of depression, mood swings, insomnia, or a lack of appetite. However, the physical relief transcends the limbs and can sooth the muscles and organs, making the Big Smooth strain a great choice for treating pain and inflammation, nausea, headaches and muscle spasms. It’s unique ability to elevate the mind and relax the body also makes it a popular choice for reducing pain during sex, making it more enjoyable.
