    Lots of negative info in the top dawg thread. Aside from JJ'S attitude, I dare say much worse and disliked more than Tha Docta has been received in this thread. Plus lots of poor reviews about JJ's current gear, which is expensive to roll the dice on...

    i just grew out top dawgs mango nigerian haze f2. incredible strain imo. have two phenos, finished one so far.
    classic piff terps, with banana and tangerine/mango tropical goodness swirling around on the palette. really nice.

    JJ is to Top Dawg what Tha Docta is to Archive, meaning it's their brand. JJ was the Chem guy, and built a solid reputation. However, it seems his recent releases have not entirely gone over all that well. I have not purchase his gear but I was gift a cut and it was fire, but his personality/attitude seems to have rubbed many the wrong way and people have been getting questionable results.

    Managed a couple.

    With flash (see more of the color)...

    A branch from a “dud” (for reference)

    CA04956D-9A87-42A3-A57F-A675272895F1.jpeg




    This also illustrates the “difficulties” in interpreting photos. In the pics, the “dud” looks similar to the keeper cookie pheno, but the diffference to the eye is “night n’ day”. The frosting on the keeper is insane, the “dud” doesn’t look even half as trich’d out. The keeper Cookie pheno has that full, “chunky”, bulbous appealing look. The “dud” lacks the “chunkiness”. These too aren’t even close, guess “you had to be there”.


    Also, a couple of other “duds” stepped up their game. May be difficult choosing a keeper on the OG side.

    Stupid Dank is happening. Heavy fuel peppered-cinnamon-spiced skunk-rubber-butter greaseballs (oily as fuck all). The Cookie dom is about the same, with a heavy “earthy, fresh baked” nose. Nose is telling me to get “baked”.

    No hate Vato, just the post I used to reply on.
    Greetings all, we are all on the hunt for genetics we perceive is what we want. So through searches and research we come across genetics we feel we want to grow. These genetics have folks behind them who are in love with what they are doing(breeding, chucking, making money, whatever synonymous words user likes). These searches have brought us to exotic, bodhi, dna, archive, top dawg, cannardo, karma, obsoul, relentless, etc.... I haven't met a grower who only grows to smoke meaning they do profit somewhat off of what they grow. So if you pay $1000 for descent genetics their is the potential to make that investment back EASILY!!! I too want more info, like right now im looking to buy dosido or a cross that best exhibits dosido traits as well as the unknown from a Holy Roller, The Potion, High Five, etc... I too want to know what the females bring to the mix. In depth info, piks, colorado flo does this when crossed with dosido yes great id love it, however im not going to bitch about not finding info or not even getting a response from the breeder. Due to the fact im going to archive for face off, dosido, memory loss the source. Since for instance Im in DC/MD I have not been able to source clone only like cherry pie which I have never tried or grown yet I want, Im going to bodhi, dna, exotic, archive, etc... due to the fact that I trust what I have learned about these folks and feel they have integrity, I dont know I just hope. SO stop the bitching buy the $200 + seed pack if you only get 1 female grow that ish sell $200 worth and get back in the game!!! Peace and Love

    I have had problems like that here and there, but it has always been my fault. One reason I hate germing seeds, the slightest issue can screw things up, at least in my experience. Lemon heads were 100%, but I only popped two or three. I popping sweeties next, that will be at least 5 or 6, I'll report back if I have an issue.

    You've met them, they just didn't tell you or anyone else that they grow.

    Some people think it is never worth paying hundreds of dollars for a meal while others travel all over the world for the opportunity to have what they perceive as the best meal of their life. It's not necessarily a strictly financial consideration because almost everyone agrees that something that makes you happy is worth paying for. However, you'll be hard pressed to find people who are happy after paying 3-star restaurant prices and getting reheated factory food or uninspired dishes copied from other restaurants.

    @Odin* , curious to see how the smoke from the Scooby snacks compares to your "m" cookie pheno's. I have one Casper OG lady, and one lemonhead lady, and the terps are weak on both, the bag appeal is weaker.....but the stone is powerful. Basically I had a shitty run due to some heat issues, and while other strains that suffered the same fate, and had to be turned to edibles b/c no one wanted them after trying them once(Topdawg), those archive mids were getting requested lol. My main point is, I think that face off male he has brings something truely special to everything it touches in regards to potency, and a cookie strain is the best way to test that theory.
