5 Strains With American Genetics You Need to Try this 4th July
Over the past decade, there is perhaps no other country who has achieved more regarding the normalization of cannabis than the United States.
And while there are still some high-powered critics of the plant that seek to reduce the speed and frequency of recreational and medicinal legalization across the country, there seems to be no stopping the growth of the already booming canna-economy.
To celebrate an important day in the American calender, July 4th or Independence Day, we thought we would take a look at our top 5 strains with American genetics that are available on Seedsman.com now.
1. Blue Dream Auto from Fast Buds
Blue Dream Auto from Fast Buds is the auto-flowering version of the Californian cannabis strain Blue Dream. It is 75% sativa in genetic composition and develops big yields of long buds with an enticing aroma, great taste and “up” high.
Blue Dream is a bushy, disease resistant plant growing to a height of approximately 110 cm. tall which can be grown indoors and outdoors. Indoor yields can be as high as 300 gr/plant in a total life-cycle from germination right through to harvest of between 9 – 11 weeks. In northern latitudes it is unlikely to be ready to harvest until sometime in October thus precluding cultivation in cool regions where the early autumnal weather is usually wet and cool.
It is relatively easy to grow and is quite a thirsty plant although one which does not take kindly to over-feeding. FastBuds recommend giving no more than a quarter of the recommended dosage of plant food. This strain reacts well to lower branch pruning (so-called lolli-popping) as well as pinching the top out in order to restrict height where this might be an issue.
The aroma is very strongly, mouth-wateringly citrus-influenced, with flavours that are tart and sweet with notes of pine and cedar. THC production is very high (in excess of 20%) with medium levels of CBD. The effect is initially of a cerebrally intense, uplifting effect which evolves, mellowing out to a more relaxed physical state. It would be the perfect afternoon smoke.
2. Bruce Banger Feminised from Seedsman
With powerfully euphoric effects, unrivalled flavours and dense nugs that pack a real punch, it is no wonder that this strain variety is one of the most popular in the world today.
Seedsman’s very own Bruce Banger is bred from an Original OG Kush and a Strawberry Diesel. The strain holds a classic diesel aroma from its Strawberry parent, while retaining the exhilarating effects of its Kush lineage.
A sativa dominant strain, Bruce Banger is appropriate for daytime use; once the initial hit of power disappears, the user is left with a creative buzz that can last for hours.
Bruce Banger flowers at 9 to 10 weeks and is suitable for all environments and grow media. This immensely popular and in-demand strain is not to be missed!
3. Chemdawg Feminised from Humboldt Seed Organization
Chemdawg is an indica-dominant marijuana strain that was originally grown from a seed in a particularly nice batch of bought weed. It is the parent strain from which both OG Kush and Sour Diesel were bred. Very high potency strain.
Chemdawg is 60% indica, 40% sativa and is derived from the original Chem ’91 clone grown from that bag of weed more than a quarter of a century ago. It puts out a fabulous display of colours which varies from yellow right through the spectrum to purple.
It thrives indoors, in a greenhouse and outdoors where the climate is warm and sunny. Indoors this strain will produce 350 – 525 gr/m2 in a flowering time of 65 – 70 days. Outdoors growers can get between 2 – 3 kilos each from plants that can grow to a height of more than 4 meters. Harvest will be by the beginning of October in northern latitudes. It has good moisture resistance.
The aroma is of sour fruit, diesel fuel and pine resin. Its flavour combines citrus and tropical fruit with diesel fuel. The THC production is an incredible 24% with very low CBD at 0.1%. The exceedingly powerful, long-lasting effect is very cerebral with feelings of euphoria and an overall very uplifting quality.
4. Girl Scout Crack Feminised from Seedsman
A cross of two perennially popular strains; Green Crack and Girls Scout Cookies, Girl Scout Crack retains the most sought after traits of both its parents. Combining the invigorating energy and focus of the sativa-dominant Green Crack with the euphoric relaxation of indica-dominant Girl Scout Cookies, this strain enables users to find a perfect balance between vitality and respite.
The phenomenal therapeutic benefits of both parents are also prevalent in Girl Scout Crack, which is suitable for those suffering with pain, nausea, loss of appetite, stress and depression. As an indica/sativa hybrid, it is suitable for both night and day medication.
Girl Scout Crack has a sweet, fruity aroma with purple leaves and a dense bud structure. Like both parents, the strain takes around 7 – 9 weeks to finish flowering.
5. Peyote Gorilla Feminised from Seedsman
Peyote Gorilla is a cross of Gorilla Glue #4 (Chem Sister x Chocolate Diesel) and Peyote Purple, a colourful pheno-type of Bubba Kush. The potent, medicinal effect of the Gorilla meets the stimulating and uplifting high of the Peyote Purple.
With a flowering time of around 70 days Peyote Gorilla has a typically indica structure, medium-sized with large, broad leaves. Yields are exceptionally good; indoors growers can expect to yield between 500 – 650 gr/m2 while outdoors as much as 1500 gr/m2 can be realised. Resin levels are very high and this means that it is very suitable for making extracts and concentrates with.
This strain’s scent is sour with lemon, petrol, earthy and woody notes and these properties are reflected back in the taste. THC production is very high at between 22 – 26% with CBD at just 1%. The effect is a very potent, uplifting high which gradually evolves into a physically relaxing state that will be almost certain to ease any aches and pains.
