Networking is a huge part of it.
Moving to another thread. Sorry for the hijack.
I totally agree bro.
This plant is sacred. We need to keep it that way, and not bastardise the poor things.
Marijuana is becoming waaaay too Monstanto, like all other types of plants and seeds.
IMHO, the "feminised only" breeders and sellers on the market, are some of the scummiest, greediest bits of shit there are. You can get 1000's of seeds from one plant.
They couldnt give two shits about their plants. They just wanna take our money and trap us into having to buy more. Just like Monsanto vegetables.
Let alone the cost of them at over $10 each. If someone tried to sell me seed on the street for 5-10 each, id tell them to take a hike. They could tell me the plants were worshipped and caressed by a sherpa, and grown in the Himalayas, and fed goat shit, id still em to get the fuck out.
If its good seed stock, its all the same shit. Its all good.
Chuck some pollen on a girl, give the "new strain" a name and then feminize the seeds to protect their "intellectual property."
If these pollen chuckers actually did the proper breeding on these new strains and stabilized them i would be willing to pay big bucks for the seeds. But for big bucks they better grow and develop as advertised. However, from the 30+ plants from fem seeds i have grown out and finished only 2 of them made it through the whole cycle strongly. Only two. And even they yielded less than what they shouldve. Im convinced the feminization process, which is a stressor, weakens the genetics of the strain.
Right now im doing 8 Nirvana Northernlight fems. So far i am impressed by their uniformity. It is a stable strain. 10/10 seeds popped. Kept the best 8. 7 are the same pheno with one runt and the 8th is showing its sativa side. Well done Nirvana. This is how it should be.
BUT... they are not as vigorous and resiliant as the northern lights regs that i have done from Nirvana. Not even close. These have had troubled lives all the way through veg. Very senisitve... and they will yield far less than i am used to from regs of this strain because of it.
The trouble is... most.people.dont know any better because all they grow is fems, out of convenience...
Well said bro. Thanks for sharing your experiences aswell
regs unless you want bruce jenners lol
There are good and bad bred regular and feminized seeds. Tons of misinformation about fems in this thread.
The fems in the above side by side grew more uniform and higher yielding plants with the same potency and flavor as the regs.
Is he "Sam the Skunk Man"?
Shanti baba, and Arijan Gold?
He's inspiration man.
I stay in contact with a breeder. We became email friends. He gifted me some shantibaba critical mass seeds that shanti feminized from his own garden and traded with him.
Phenomenal old school smoke. And the good feeling that the plant I grew came from the man himself.
I looove great white shark
Its just so sweet and widowy at the same time. Could smoke it everyday
I like the shark for sure. But I wish my guy had asked for white rhino (medicine man). But my breeder likes sativa leaning hybrids like diesel, Thai and real skunk weed.
I had some great white shark from a dispensary 4 years ago. One of the only good weeds I ever got from a dispensary. I can still remember that delicious flavor. And a blasting high despite relatively low thc.
