Hashberry


HASHBERRY With this exceptional new strain we are building upon our successful breeding lines to offer growers an indica that combines the best of many traits. Hashberry is the unique result from a rigorous selection of desirable parents, with specialattention paid to preserve the hybrid vigor our strains are so valued for.
This indica will grow to a medium height and is a good choice where space matters and excellent for SOG. Hashberry develops a tight and heavy head bud with dense buds located on her firm side shoots. You will notice that many plants cover the bud leaves with a coat of THC glands and these will fill your pollinator/bubble bags generously. This strain still remains easy to manicure, and the dried buds have great “bag appeal”. The buds reveal a refreshing fruity-floral scent during the flowering period. After proper drying and maturation their fragrance transforms into a delicious hashy-berry like aroma. Hashberry not only has hybrid vigor, but is also very heat resistant and easy to grow. We recommend keeping humidity levels and watering low during the last 2 weeks of flowering to prevent any mold in the compact top buds.

* Type: mostly indica
* Landrace genetics from: North India (Kashmir)
* Cultivation: indoor/outdoor (up to 45° latitude, balcony, greenhouse)
* Light: 400 W/m2
* Flowering time: 60-65 days/September - 1. week October
* Yield: 400-450 gr/m2 (dry weight)
* High: the classic chill-out weed, an expansive indica stone with a powerful high that sets in with the first lungfull of smoke, the buzz is first light-headed and very balanced before switching to a stronger narcotic phase towards the end of your flight.

KALICHAKRA


This variety carries the name of the Hindu Godess Kali, a tantric partner of the ganja smoking God Shiva. With Kalichakra we offer a hardy, potent sativa hybrid with a good yield. This sativa remains easy to control in height - indoor you can expect her to increase two to three times in height in the flowering period. Outdoors she will reach a height of 1,6 - 2,0 meters in temperate climates. Due to the high calyx-leaf ratio the quality of the flowers is above average and she is easy to manicure. She grows in two distinct phenotypes: some plants develop their resinous flowers in an airy pattern, others grow compact quality buds. Kalichakra provides clones easily and in Hydroponics rapid growth can be expected - thereby shortening the flowering time.

* Type: sativa-indica
* Cultivation: indoor/outdoor
* Light: 400 W/m2
* Flowering time: 70-75 days/October
* Yield: 500-550 gr/m2 (dry weight)
* High: a potent, sativa high with an energizing body effect; THC-tolerance only builds up slowly, therefore the best choice for medical or regular users.
* Medical Use: Kalichakra shows her therapeutic potential in pain relief and helping against depression.

KRYSTALICA


This limited edition of Krystalica is an easy to grow, robust plant especially for outdoor cultivation. She will produce high yielding, resinous buds with an exceptional calyx-to-leaf ratio. The plants have a good resistance against pests and mold, and they can withstand high summer temperatures and ocassional spells of wet or cold weather during flowering. These features make her the ideal choice for an outdoor sativa. Outdoor cultivation is recommended in regions with warm summers or up to the 45° latitude. In more northern climates the performance and harvest date will depend on local weather and length of daylight. Under good climatic conditions she can be easily grown up to the 55° latitude.

We recommend planting the seeds May-June if you wish to grow shorter plants. The average height of potted plants will be about 1 meter and in soil 1,5 meters. For maximum yields plant the seeds beginning of March to April. The mature females can then reach a height of approx. 3 meters and will develop impressive yields of quality buds. Check the buds for mold if very cold and wet weather persists in autumn. Remove any suspicous looking or infected buds. Krystalica has good mold resistance but should be harvested if it rains almost daily in the last 2 weeks of flowering.

Indoor: Krystalica can also be grown indoor from seeds and in soil under 400W/m2 or more. In hydroponics we recommend only the use of clones due to the vegetative power of this strain. She will make a very vigorous mother plant that is best grown in soil (for easy management). The mother plants produce many high quality, strong cuttings that can be put into flowering early. This sativa is perfect for SOG (Sea of Green) cultivation. Plants from seeds can be pruned or tied down to control height if necessary. This strain is a real treat for any indoor garden managed by friends of sativa!

Limited Outdoor Edition 2005
* Type: mostly sativa
* Cultivation: indoor/outdoor
* Height (outdoor): 1,5 to 3 meters (depending on planting time)
* Flowering time: 70 days/October
* Yield (outdoor): 400-800 gr. dry weight per plant (depending on plant size)
* High: long lasting sativa high, euphoric, creative, energetic.

Mandala #1


Mandala #1 is a good choice if you are aiming for a quick crop with a sativa effect. We recommend this strain especially for northern climates where harvesting by the end of September is a priority. This strain has two basic phenotypes (characteristic plant types). Approximately 30% of the plants belong to the sativa dominant phenotype and grow in a christmas tree shape. The leaf structure is similar to the indica dominant pheno. Purplish leaf stems and light red stripes along shoots are not uncommon and should not be mistaken for a nutrient deficiency. The young flowering plants have a perfumed woody-herbal fragrance when you rub the stems.* Despite the sativa dominance the buds are chunky and the plants are easy to grow.

The indica type pheno is apparent through it's squater growth, thick main stem, and larger leaves. Branches are shorter, growing upwards close to the plant (perfect for SOG). The side shoots towards the top are also short and give the head buds a more compact structure. This pheno tends to develop a sweet-spicy smell during early flowering.
Mandala #1 flowers with a spear-shaped head bud of considerable length that makes this a high yielder. Resin output is impressive - also in outdoor grows. The prime head buds are coated with a thick layer of trichomes and glisten brightly in the sun. Some plants develop beautiful dark purple calyxes during mid-flowering: a trait which they inherited from the New Zealand Purple Indica in the paternal line. Harvesting is very simple since the calyx-to-leaf ratio is predominantly high.

Indoor
One of our breeding goals is to ensure that our strains are flexible and stable so that plants can be raised indoor and undergo the light stress of switching between artificial lighting and sunlight. It is therefore possible to start your garden indoor and shift the plants outdoor for flowering. Cloning and regenerating Mandala #1 is easy.** Since this strain has a high percentage of landrace genetics that were adapted to growing on nutrient poor soil, the plants subsist easily in good horticultural grade potting soil and require little feeding if any. We recommend to provide an adequate pot size for healthy growth. Height is average and even the sativa pheno can be accomodated in small indoor spaces if a 12/12 light period is started early. A Sea of Green style cultivation is best with the indica phenotype or with clones (rather than from seed) of both phenos. All plants are suitable for SCROG and other forms of training.

Outdoor
This early flowering strain shares the benefits of hardy landrace genetics and a very resinous hybrid to produce robust plants with high bud quality. The auto-flowering traits in this cross initiate flowering early enough for an abundant yield in September. Even if harsh weather circumstances require harvesting before all plants reach full maturity, they will still deliver a satisfying amount of resin-coated buds.

* Aroma is based on our observations in organic soil grow.
** For optimal results we recommend you regenerate flowering plants as early as possible and under a 22-24 hour light source until the fresh leaf growth reverts to 5-7 finger leaves.

* Type: sativa-indica
* Genetics: South African highland x NZ Purple Indica & North Indian
* Flowering time: 55-60 days indoor; mid-end of September: outdoor/greenhouse
* Yield (dry weight): 450gr/m2 indoor
* Aroma: Properly cured buds have a natural sweet smell like dried apples. The purple plants spread a delicious raspberry fragrance, with a touch of minty freshness.
* High: an up-high that spreads in waves; euphoric; creative; can also be spacey or dreamy at the start.
* Medical potential: Mandala #1 may benefit with it's anti-anxiety and anti-depressive effect.

SADHU


Sadhu is a combination of a specially adapted landrace male from the Himalayan heights and one of our short flowering indica-sativa hybrids. This variety is a hommage to the legendary ganja from the Indian high altitude valleys, and to the wandering ascetics or sadhus, who keep the tradition of cannabis cultivation and ganja alive. The robust and compact Sadhu is especially suited for indoor gardens where her medium height and shorter flowering period are an important asset. Incognito outdoor cultivation sites benefit from her shorter stature of about 1.6 meters . An area with low humidity levels during the last two weeks of flowering enables highest yields. Some plants are more leafy and, therefore, a bonus for hash enthusiasts. Her aromatic properties lend to a tasty yet mild smoke and the high is exceptionally pleasant.

* Type: indica-sativa
* Cultivation: indoor/outdoor
* Light: 400 W/m2
* Flowering time: 60-65 days/September - 1. week October
* Yield: 400-450 gr/m2 (dry weight)
* High: relax and unwind with a strong psychoactive high that makes your mind fly while your body remains in a state of relaxation; this indica is seldom narcotic if harvested within 8 1/2 weeks.
* Medical Use: Sadhu assists against stress and nervousness.
