Far Out is a quality Columbian Haze-Blueberry hybrid that has all the classic trademarks of an refined sativa. We recommend this strain to sativa lovers with some cultivation experience. As a long flowering variety with a more delicate structure, it requires gardening know-how to avoid common mistakes that unnecessarily stress the plants. In particular, take care not to over-water or use oversized containers for soil. It is better to repot after the plants have rooted in smaller containers (such as 3-4L or 1 gallon) than to grow them out directly in a large pot. “Hot” soils should be avoided, especially nitrogen rich mixes and feeds.

During flowering this variety produces elongated sativa-like buds and a minority can lean toward an extreme form with a rather fluffy appearance (foxtail colas). At maturity her branch tips swell with beautiful and aromatic resin-coated buds. Large gardens allow multi-branching, although staking may be necessary due to the willowy branches and weighty flowers. The height of mature plants grown in soil is pleasantly manageable with most plants averaging between 100-120 cm/3.3-3.9 feet and just the odd individual reaching up to 145 cm/4.75 feet (this is the extreme sativa type). Far Out performs satisfactorily in all mediums, but hydro is recommended if yield is the main objective. There are highly resinous plants with impressive potential for yield, so it is wise to keep clones as backup if you are looking for a keeper. Mold resistance is high. Prospects for growing this strain outdoor in moderate or hot climates are very positive and under good conditions bumper yields can be expected. Due to the fantastic calyx-leaf ratio you can almost just cut and dry the ripe buds. The sparse bud leaves tend to be fully covered with trichomes which extend even to fan leaves. The smoke is aromatic like sweet thyme with a touch of fruit and the high is reflected in her name: Far Out!

Hubble Bubble is a very homogenous plant and perfect if you just want to grow from seeds. Her size remains short with little stretch which makes this an ideal strain for growing in small spaces, on a balcony, or for discreet outdoor plantations. Under HPS lamps with a standard 4 week vegetative time in soil she typically reaches between 80-90 cm, which is well under a meter (or 30-35"). The growth pattern tends towards a Christmas tree shape, so this could be a strain that can be easily trained if you prefer this method. Due to the short size it is not productive to prune the plants unless you offer enough light or grow time, or have a hydroponic set-up. Although branchy the plants don’t take up a lot of space and can be planted in a sea of green style. Buds are quite dense and have a complex bouquet of sweetness with an exotic hint of spice (like Christmas cookies), or a touch of rosemary that reminds one of herbal candy. The frosty nuggets are great for bong hits or vaporizers. Hubble Bubble’s homogenous growth, compact size and balanced stone make this a good staple strain for all kinds of growers.

Yield (dry weight):450 gr/m2; 800+ gr. per plant outdoor in the ground.
Plant Height:medium

Fruitylicous has inherited the frosty tight buds and the succulent savour of berry from a specially selected mother called Very Berry Hashberry. The fruity aroma is complemented by a touch of hazelnut or soft pine during flowering. But when you open a bag or glass of cured buds, the aroma that flows out is like a tantalizing fruit basket of berries. The slightest touch to the nugs fills the air with an intense fruitiness. A proper drying and curing process is recommend to preserve the flavour profile long-term (please also note that aroma is dependant on cultivation methods and external factors). The buzz is a smile-inducing euphoria that makes it great for socializing and recreational fun. This is a good daytime smoke, but you can also party with it throughout the night.

Fruitylicious performs well in soil with minimal or no extra feeding and is a robust strain among our current feminized line. That makes her a good choice for novice growers and if you expect that the plants have to brave periods of harsh weather outdoor. The thicker branches should withstand higher wind speeds or heavy rain and this can be lifesaving in a difficult outdoor season. Although Fruitylicious does not compare in vigour or yield to the original Hashberry (due to the process of feminization), this is a very fine strain for the connoisseur and commercial grower alike.

California Dream starts flowering soon after 12/12 and continues progressively at a regular pace. The plants are very similar in appearance and height, which means you can rely on steady results when growing from seeds. Under a standard 3-4 week vegetative time in soil with 400-600W HPS/m2 they tend to stretch to approx. 1 meter (3.3 feet) with little variation. The attractive buds have a typical conical shape with towers of resiny calyxes. Some buds are denser than others but the differences are minimal. This strain may have good potential for SCROG. California Dream prefers to grow in a balanced soil mix without excessive nitrogen content, and hot organic mixes with bat guano, etc. should be avoided. In a sea of green set-up it may be best to prune the shoots at the bottom three internodes to strengthen the top branches.

Resin production is reliable among all plants and the buds are easy to trim after harvest. Mold resistance tends to be high. Outdoors, California Dream can be grown in temperate regions as long as the weather does not turn before the harvesting date, around the middle of September. The effects are quick-hitting, producing an all-round high that can be felt in both body and mind. The stone leaves a sense of well-being and reflects the balanced yet stimulating power of it’s parentage. It may inspire you to hang loose and take a mind vacation, or motivate you to have fun with friends. This is a promising strain to try out.

The DRC is one of the biggest producers of marijuana in Africa yet the genetics are rarely available outside of the country. With our easy to grow feminised hybrid you can get a taste of this special equatorial Sativa. White Magic is a very versatile strain with high mold resistance. She can be cultivated in tropical to warm temperate environments up to 45°N. The plants withstand heat and have been stress-tested up to 48°C/118°F in a greenhouse. Cultivators in regions with a constant photoperiod or high humidity should especially consider growing this strain. The plants have relatively long internodes, which has to be taken into account when growing in containers or a greenhouse. Late planting and pruning is recommended if a moderate size is desired. We recommend timing the planting season to allow for approx. one month vegetative growth. In a mediterranean or hot climate, plant height averages between 1,70 to 2,10 meters in containers, if they are planted in June (northern hemisphere) and left unpruned. White Magic responds well to LST (low stress training) and she is generally easy to grow. Trimming the bottom shoots further simplifies plant care and increases the strength of the upper branches. Profuse lateral branching needs to be supported or trained. This strain grows well in quality horticultural grade potting soil, but still requires additional feedings during flowering if grown in containers. Sufficient nutrients should be provided over the full life cycle.

The Congo landrace typically grows huge foxtail colas that extend outwards like tentacles. That wild side may still shine through in some of the White Magic females. But most plants typically grow denser colas with a cone-shaped tip. And that creamy coating of resin puts a smile on any growers face. Once you see the flowering colas glistening in the sun you will know why she is called “white”! Clear to slightly milky resin is typical right up to the end. During flowering you will find yourself engulfed in a sweet smell when you brush against the plants. Freshly harvested buds can also emit a peppery smell that is so typical of African strains, but this tends to disappear later during curing.

The high is a creative-intellectual awakening with an electric edge. This is a very active buzz that leaves you functional and motivated. The cannabinoid profile is nicely balanced and allows you to indulge on a cerebral Sativa trip without worrying about negative side effects like a racy heart. Just enjoy the ride and let her do her magic!

Purple Paro Valley was developed from a landrace Sativa that originates from the Paro Valley in West Bhutan at an altitude of 2.500 meters. The feminised hybrid is only two generations removed from the wild habitat. In this region the landrace has adapted to the harsh Himalayan climate of extended dry spells, monsoon rain, and cold winters. Purple Paro Valley (PPV) is recommended for cultivation in northern climates up to 56°N, or where high humidity is a concern. With global warming making outdoor cultivation increasingly unpredictable this resilient landrace hybrid can meet the challenge.

Thanks to her extreme durability she can cope with low temperatures better than most modern cannabis strains. At first glance her flexible branches look somewhat fragile and willowy. But the local Paro landrace can withstand strong wind and downpours. For the most part, Purple Paro Valley has inherited this feature. Nevertheless, it is recommended to support the plants if a storm is expected and not to wait and see! The mold resistance of the pure landrace and PPV is exceptionally high. The plants are also quite nutrient-efficient. Hybridising the landrace was essential to improve yield. Growing a large multi-branch plant will enhance yield further. Purple Paro Valley is especially suitable as a “back-up strain” in unfavourable climates. For example, a few PPV plants can be combined with a higher yielding strain for the north such as our Mandala #1. In very difficult locations, or in a season with exceptionally bad weather, Purple Paro Valley is perhaps the only reliable choice. Where other varieties have already failed before, there is still hope with this special strain! For guerrilla cultivation she is also an attractive choice because hardly any other strain requires such low maintenance.

Although the mother genetics are homogenous it did not turn out this way with the current feminised strain. This doesn’t have to be an undesirable factor. Diversity is an evolutionary strategy in nature to ensure survival. For that purpose, the diversity in PPV can play an important role in securing your harvest. We differentiate mainly between the green and the purple phenotype. The purple phenotype accounts for approx. 75% per 10 seeds and is very attractive and fascinating to watch during flowering. The green pheno is shorter in height, finishes flowering earlier, and the buds are also more compact. The purple plants have long internodes, which has to be taken into account when growing in containers or a greenhouse. Late planting and pruning is recommended in both situations. In a Mediterranean or hot climate the plants grow between 1.50 (green pheno) to 2 meters in containers if they are planted in June (northern hemisphere) and left unpruned. If a moderate size is desired, we recommend timing the planting season to allow for just one month vegetative growth. During this vegetative period pruning the main growing tip once should be sufficient. Purple Paro Valley responds well to LST (low stress training). Trimming the bottom shoots further simplifies plant care and increases the strength of the upper branches.

During flowering most plants develop a delicious spicy and green lime aroma. The citrus/lime scent is typical of the Paro landrace. But there is one type of plant that stands out and we call her “candy girl”, because she smells just like sugary candy! When you crumble the dry buds they release a sweet, minty scent with a touch of hazelnut. The green phenotype tends towards lavender. The terpene linalool is responsible for the lavender scent and enhances the sedative, sleep enhancing effects, as well contributing to pain relief. Some of the purple plants can also smell like black tea, but the smoke still leaves a fresh, minty aftertaste on the exhale. PPV hash oil has the fresh, sweet, balsamic aroma of Himalayan cedar wood and has tested at 27,5% THC. The high is predominantly very relaxing or couch lock. It’s suitable for winding down, as a sleep aid, great to relieve hyperactivity and nervousness.

For the first time Bhutanese landrace genetics from this mysterious and remote Himalayan country can be savoured and explored! White Bhutanese originates from mother plants cultivated from first-rate wild seed stock. The mother plants are completely authentic and unmodified since the time when these seeds were collected in the natural habitat. White Bhutanese is only one generation removed from its Himalayan source!

To facilitate outdoor cultivation and offer a feminized strain we hybridized the mother plants with a carefully selected pollen donor. The major characteristics of the Bhutanese landrace have been preserved, whilst improving and standardizing the overall quality of the flowering buds. This particular Sativa is from Wangdi Province in Central Bhutan. It grows in semi tropical climate with cool winters at an altitude of 1.300-2.000 meters. Our White Bhutanese is a very versatile strain with high mold resistance. She can be cultivated in tropical to warm temperate environments up to 43°N. The plants withstand heat and have been stress-tested up to 48°C/118°F in a greenhouse. Cultivators in regions with a constant photoperiod or high humidity should especially consider growing this strain.

White Bhutanese is a classical, tall Sativa with long internodes, which has to be taken into account when growing in containers or a greenhouse. Late planting and pruning is essential unless you have the space or resources to grow giants! In a Mediterranean or hot climate the plants can still reach up to 2,50 meters in containers if they are planted in June (northern hemisphere) and left unpruned. If a moderate size is desired, we recommend timing the planting season to allow for just one month vegetative growth. During this vegetative period pruning the main growing tip once should be sufficient. Too much pruning can backfire with landrace Sativas, especially in container cultivation, and decrease yield. So don’t be tempted to cut your plants down to a bonsai! White Bhutanese responds well to LST (low stress training) and, once you have figured out how to handle her size, she is otherwise very easy to grow and not fussy. Trimming the bottom shoots further simplifies plant care and increases the strength of the upper branches. White Bhutanese grows well in quality horticultural grade potting soil, but still requires additional feedings during flowering if grown in containers. Due to her vigour, size, and length of flowering time, sufficient nutrients should be provided over the full life cycle.

The Bhutanese landraces are extremely hardy and not prone to hermaphrodites. Both the mother genetics and White Bhutanese were stress-tested and found to be highly resistant. Keeping your plants as healthy as possible will further ensure a safe and great harvest. Trichome production is impressive. But don’t hold your breath waiting for them to turn amber! The wonderfully clear to slightly milky resin is a trademark of White Bhutanese. Time your harvest according to the strain details, the natural decrease in bud development and, of course, the weather forecast. As harvest nears you can enjoy an exotic variety of scents. It can be a mixture of spice, lemon, fruit, mint, and nuts in various combinations. It took a while before we could figure out a suitable comparison for this complex aroma palette. The nearest was the typical Indian sweets or “mithai” made from cashews, pistachios, cardamom, etc. Once this tasty herb is dried and cured the aroma matures to a unique synthesis that reflects the environment the plants grew in, but the lemon and mint remains typical.

The high has a smooth entry with an enduring effect. It’s a perfect balance between potency and everyday enjoyability. This herb is perfect for concentrating and creative projects, because it is not prone to interrupting your train of thoughts of triggering forgetfulness. The effects are mainly cerebral but also register in the body, with a physical laid-back state in the last quarter of the high which invites you to relax. However, this is a temporary phase and the buzz leaves behind a refreshed state of mental clarity. The relatively high CBG content enhances the medical applications of this strain such as for moderate pain relief, as a sleep aid, and treatment for glaucoma.
