    I haven't but I know from others that they are one of the best if not best source for cheese strains. Dr Greenthumb has feminized seeds from a pure clone that would be the only next better choice.

    I've seen a lot of people who grew DGTs seeds and found quite a few hermies and some negative reviews of his gear.
    The fact that he is expensive doesn't make it better than other breeders.

    I've seen a bunch of very nice journals with the Blue Cheese and never found someone who got issues with that strain.

    Do have you any personal experience or is all you have is hear-say?
    I've been here for over two years and never heard any complaints of hermies with Doc's seed even his fems.
    There are several growers here that have grown most of his gear and never reported a problem.

    You may be correct about the BB cheese. Never done any research at all on it.
    Did you read Hobbes smoke report for Doc's newest strain "The Dope" (Endless Sky X Chumaluma)
    Hobbes was gifted seeds as a test grower so he has had a head start on growing them.
    In a nutshell, it's killer .

    I read he took 8 YRS to breed "the Dope".
    Incredible!!!!!!

    Ill check out Hobbes grow.

    that could be a problem. He didn't do a smoke report just mentioned it in another thread , the title of it is a complete blank in my brain right now. All I know is it's the best dope he's ever smoked. He sent Doc $225 for the seeds even though he was given them for free.

    There was a huge thread about the hermi issues a while ago.

    I also got 2 hermies (so far) out of a pack of Subcools Jilly Bean when no-one said anything about it.

    I think that seeds that barely have any grow journals is sketchy.
    I also believe in "if there aren't pictures it didn't happen".
    8 years to breed a strain while he knew what he aims for? sounds like bullshit. It takes 2-3 years to stabilize a plant. 4 months to do a cross. 8 years just means he was getting no-where.

    I've seen a grow or two with DRGTs seeds and nothing looked any better than other strains.

    I do go by what I see around. I found GREAT cuts from 90bucks packs (like my current Jack The Ripper cut) and I don't see a reason to pay twice for something you can't even find specific info on.

    yeah. I had a hunch buddy was mistaken so I looked at the catalog and it clearly states its a a 5X backross to Afghani. That would make it well over 96 % pure but not the original. Dr Greenthumbs are pure 100 % since they are from a femmiized clone.
    Still haven't found a grow report on that yet.

    DRGTs are S1s, which are far from stable.
    I would preffer the backcrossed option without a doubt.

    Selfed females are a major genetic bottle neck.

    Its pretty stupid to claim S1s are better than the same strain cubed for 5 generations.

    opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, thank you for sharing yours. I'll thank you to not use personal insults with them.

    Its not up to opinions, its up to genetic chances. There's a solid science behind it.

    I can look up the specific numbers tomorrow if you really wish.

    EDIT: thought about it for a second. I'm off with this argue. If you wish to keep with your baseless ideas I don't got the time to force you to change.

    Cheers.
