Strain Of The Day - Qleaner

Indica 60 / Sativa 40
Origins: Jack’s Cleaner x Purple Urkle x Space Queen
Flowering: 56-63 days

Qleaner’s true beginnings are with its Jack’s Cleaner mother. Jack’s Cleaner is a complex cross, which began by pairing Plutton and Neville’s 1985 Super Sativa Seed Club (SSSC) Northern Lights #5. Through multiple steps, Purple Haze and Jack Herer were also introduced to the Jack’s Qleaner in its flavor and effects, but the Q comes from the influence of the father, a west coast mix of Purple Urkle and Space Queen.
Due to her short frame, Qleaner performs well indoors, producing good yields in both soil and hydroponic setups. When hydro methods are used, this strain tends to experience a fast growth spurt. In soil, Qleaner plants should be topped and trained to maximize light, which greatly improves garden yields. Short vegetative times in hydro will deliver yields of about 2 ounces per site. In soil, 5 ounces per plant is average. Plants budded at 24 inches finish at a height of less than 5 fe…

Strain Of The Day Vanilluna

Indica 50 / Sativa 50
Origins: Blueberry Sativa x Original Blueberry
Flowering: 56-63 days
Harvest: October

Vanilluna – aka “Vanilla Moon” – is a Kush-like quasi-hybrid named for its complex yet subtle creamy vanilla-honeyed palate. This Oregon strain’s parents are both Blueberry in origin. The mother was selected from the Blueberry Sativa line, the same seed stock that produced both Blue Satellite and Cocoa Kush. Vanillunna’s particular mother has the characteristics of being larger, mostly green, and symmetric with a distinct dominant main stem, compact nodes, little variegation, and long side branches. It was crossed with DJ Short’s Original Blueberry male, an infamous euphoric berry strain that is an indica-dominant hybrid from Thai and Afghan origins.
Even though both parents derive from Blueberry, the Original Blueberry is an indica type, while the mother is a sativa type, making Vanilluna closer to an F1 hybrid than an inbred line. Because of their quasi-F1 status, Vanilluna plants …

Strain Of The Day - Cocoa Kush

Indica 50 / Sativa 50
Origins: Blueberry sativa x Original Blueberry
Flowering: 55-65 days
Harvest: October Cocoa Kush is a 2009 release from the stables of the Delta-9 collection. It was developed on the US West Coast and tested in Oregon and California. DJ Short’s breeding work is most strongly associated with his development of the original Blueberry. A meticulous breeder, DJ has mostly worked to expand the Blue family, creating boutique strains for the medical or hobby grower that are stable, uniquely flavorful first-class headstash. Cocoa Kush is no exception. Sister to the Vanilluna, Cocoa Kush is a selection of two Blueberry parents. Even though they are both Blueberries, they embody different variations: the mother is a more sativa type, and the father is a “stretch” indica type, making Cocoa Kush more similar to an F1 hybrid than an inbred line. The F1 seeds are uniform, but offer genetic diversity in additional crosses. Cococa Kush’s Blueberry sativa mother forms asymmetric gr…

Strain Of The Day - Green Crack

90% Sativa / 10% Indica Genetics: Skunk #1 x Sweet Leaf Indica
Flowering: 45-53 days
THC: 18% Don’t let the name put you off, this is high quality cannabis sativa strain. It was originally bred in Athens, GA in the 1970s with the birth name of Cush. It was later renamed “Green Crack” by none other than Snoop Dogg because of its extreme potency and the crave to keep smoking it. Green Crack is extremely popular in Southern California with both medical marijuana patients for its strong sativa effects, and recreational users who love it’s sweet taste and happy high. Green Crack has a medium-green color punctuated with orange and bluish hairs. It has a tangy, fruity smell (thus the nickname “Mango”) and the taste is sweet as well. There are two strains of Green Crack: one that is almost pure Sativa and one that is 75% Indica. The better known phenom is the sativa dominant strain, and the only sign of indica genetics being present are the tight nugs. As expected, Green Crack grows somewhat t…

Strain Of The Day - Kerala Krush

Sativa 85 / Indica 15
Origins: South Indian x Original Skunk #1
Flowering: 63-77 days
Harvest: mid November Kerala, the Southern tip of the Indian subcontinet, is famous for goddess-centered Hinduism, tropical forests, white beaches, and blasting cannabis highs. Kerala Krush is an extremely vigorous hybrid – the result of pure Keralan sativa crossed with the robust Skunk #1. This sativa hybrid offers a Zen high, good yields and reasonable maturation times. Kerala Krush can be grown indoors, or outdoors from 45 degrees latitude right down to the equator. A greenhouse is a great compromise for outdoor gardeners in temperate regions. Flying Dutchmen recommends growing this variety organically in soil, but all other growing methods are suitable. A slender plant of medium height, Kerala Krush has narrow leaflets and lonf petioles. indoors, best results are attained through pruning once or twice before flowering. Bending the lateral branches to 45 degrees reduces stretching by allowing light to d…

Strain Of The Day - Diamond Head

Origins: Flow x atypical Flow
Flowering: 55-60 days
Harvest: early October Diamond Head is the name of the large volcano that glimmers like a jewel on Oahu’s emerald skyline. Held in “high esteem” by the locals, honored by the chiefs, and enjoyed by anyone with an appreciation for Mother Nature’s beauty, Diamond Head evokes the vision of what Sagarmatha believes to be her version of primo pakalolo. To make Diamond head, a mother Flow plant was crossed with an atypical Flow male that exhibited a Hawaiian phenotype. Diamond Head displays a mostly sativa growth pattern – slender serrated purple leaves and elongated purple buds plump with sticky crystalline trichomes. Everything about this plant is sativa except for the large, dense flower tops and spongy buds, which have a slight indica profile. Diamond head would love to grow on the tropical mountainsides of Hawaii, but any garden where plants can continue to ripen into mid or late October will suffice. For indoor growing, Sagarmat…

Strain Of The Day - Ethiopian Highland

Origins: Ethiopian Highland
Flowering: 42 days
Harvest: mid September African Seeds obtained the original seed stock for Ethipian Highland from the breeders in the Rasta community in Shashemene, a sprawling town located in the Great Rift Valley, about 150 miles from Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa. The strain originated in the highland region of Southern Tanzania, and then was brought to Ethiopia where it was grown for many generations before reaching African Seeds breeders. This pure sativa strain has never been crossed, only inbred. Outdoors, Ethiopian thrives when grown in a location with a long warm summer, but it will also do well in the Northern European latitudes and cooler high altitude mountain climates. This plant can also be tamed for indoor gardens as long as the lighting is fairly intense. Ebb and flow hydro is a better choice of systems; this plant is difficult to grow in soil indoors. African Seeds typically allows this heavily branched, shorter sativa strain to gro…
