Unknown seeds referred to the first bagseed grow I did. Shitty schwag bagseeds -- I don't even know where to get weed that comes off of a compressed mexican brick anymore THANK GOD. Did the typical newbie miracle gro/scotts storebought, chemical fertiler grow, rushing the harvest on a plant that possibly couldn't even be grown out fully under a 400w light (since it was probably a 120+ day strain). It was weak. So weak.
But then I read about growing organically, getting seeds from seedbanks. So I moved up to mixing my own soil and this time I ordered a bunch of Nirvana seeds -- Ak-48, Blue Mystic, White Rhino, White Widow. I grew Ak-48 first and was not that impressed (could have been my skills or rushing the plant). It looked nice but did not have the 'knock your dick in the dirt' high I bought it for based on reputation. Blue Mystic was very mellow awesome tasing bud - not a knockout stone but very relaxing, mild painkilling and good anti-nausea medicine. White Rhino and White Widow were the most potent and very stoney. Super solid buzz and good yields but neither of them the killer buzz I ultimately am looking for.
Later I also ordered some Apollo 11 f2 seeds (can't remember breeder) -- that Genius high is what I seek. I didn't get a true genius pheno, but I definitely got some genius influenced plants with the soaring, cerebral, creative high. The kind that will make you sit down and right several pages about something at one sitting. I always wanted to find Apollo-13 and Genius seeds or cuttings, but was never able to -- until now.
Along with the Apollo I ordered some Paradise Sensi Star and Matanuska Tundra from another breeder. Sensi Star was a great looking plant and smelled like rotting gym socks. BEAUTIFUL indica plants and very potent stoney buzz but still not the grail I sought. Matanuska Tundra also great, solid, beautiful plants but honestly don't even remember how the buzz was other than I don't remember being disappointed
So after close to 2 years of growing I ended up having to shut my grow down due to my daughter getting old enough to start getting suspicious. A few years later I ended up getting divorced and smoked quite a bit less as I restructured my life from what it had been before to something new. Ended up selling most everything I owned (including trading/giving away almost all my grow supplies) and moving overseas for a year where I got married again. Returned to the US and have settled down with my new wife here and there are just so many reasons for growing again. I love it. I really only have 3 passions in my life. My family, growing and smoking, and mixed martial arts. I live a responsible lifestyle and have a good job but my work is not my passion.
I'm looking to move in the next 1-2 years probably to Colorado - but waiting to see what happens in other states for legalization I may have to go whereever that happens first as I'm just sick of living where I can be thrown in jail for years just for loving growing a plant and not wanting to support a black market for shit that I have NO idea what's in it.
