My favorite out the bunch of AK BB NL5/NL5. This is at day 25. It's been topped and I've taken 5 cuttings! The other plants all smell good, but this one makes your mouth water. They have what I'd describe as an old school lemony skunk smell. This one has been stinking since about day 14. Super healthy plants and very uniform. I'd love to see what this strain looks like in someone else's garden.
Headgrinder, I just finished running the NL5/NL5 and got 3 females out of 3 popped. I really like them as well. They each had a similar smell (kind of a playdough, sweet and floral) but different expressions in the growth. One out of the 3 was very sticky compared to the others. All smoke really well, a very pleasant high. One of my favorites strains out of the last run. Also ran his SSSC Pinetown Durban F3 and am enjoying that too. These are two of the three.

Beautiful!
That's a dead ringer to the Sensi Seeds NL I picked up in 94, except I never got any colors off of them.
I always assumed it was NL5 from their inheritance buyout of the Seed Banks stock, but it was never labeled as such by Sensi.

That's good to know that it's familiar! It was cold in the grow room so the colors really came out. Looking forward to playing with the rest of the pack. Also picked up his BOEL OaxacanxDwarf Oaxacan and his vintage BB. Really liking his offerings.

For those who are interested...

I am going to start a grow thread for those who are interested, will include a few diff genetics from AKBB. This is a pheno hunt/test run. I just got 4 more new testers from Dankortowne also, some of those will be grown outdoors this year which will also start soon... Absolutely cannot wait for outdoor season!

Here is a list of everything I'll be running. Since I have so many numbers and limited room, I'll probably only give a 2-2 1/2 week veg max...

AKBB
- Black dom/ NWHP x Super skunk
- Sohum95 tester (SoHum95 x black domina)
- ColumbianGold/PanamaRed x TKNL5H tester
- Dope Beard Durban
- TKNL5H
- NL1 x Big Skunk NL1
- Americanna

Sannies
-Sugar Punch
-Silverfields

KGBeans
- Psychosis Bx3
- Ben Gunn

Vashon
- Vashon Kush

Romulan Genetics
- Romulan s1

Farmer Joe 420
- 89 Nevilles Super Skunk F4


And that's about it on this run. Everything else will be ran outdoors this year. I'll update soon when I start the thread (will be here on RIU) and will add the link to the grow... Seriously excited for this one! :eyesmoke: :hump:;)
I finally started my journal/diary last night. Anyone interested, feel free to stop in and see how it all pans out for me. Hopefully I make 2020 the best year I have ever had! Updates may be slow at times, I'm a very busy man.

That first pic just may be the best bud pic I've ever seen in my life! That looks so beautiful, and that it's NL5, should put it on the cover of every mag out there. Definatly send it to AKBB. He wont be able to keep a seed in stock if he used it. Seriously very nice work! I was lucky enough to grab some Oaxacan, and dope beard durban from JBC (gotta have them sativas too). Of my NL5/NL5 there are 3/7 females that are stacking heavier than the others. However, the one that smells the best, is turning out a little lanky. I took a bit of pollen from 2/3 males and am going to stash some seeds in my freezer for the next 30+ too. But back to your picture, that is definitely a beauty!

I've always been under the interpretation that DJ "pioneered" the blueberry plant? Although I thought that AKBB discussed his blueberry and said it predated DJ's work but I was unsure if it was true or simply a mistake. From the seedfinder description...
"An Alaskan native strain predating work by DJ Short that is highly rot and mildew resistant and is superb for harsh outdoor climates. Indoors, the plant needs a large pot to stretch out its roots as a constricted base will stress it into an autoflowering state that will show sex. Clean, upbeat, and happy."
Still interesting, I wonder how many blueberry pheno's made it up there or where their origins come from if they weren't from DJ or an offspring of his. Im definitely interested in this blueberry and might pop the pack instead of sitting on it.
He may mean predating DJ selling any blueberry. If you listen to DJ short's potcast he was giving out cuts in OR way before he started selling seeds. It could be a completely separate strain that just smells like blueberry. My guess is it's a DJ short clone that made it up to Alaska. I have no clue, just guessing.

I assumed the ones we ordered were the ones he talked about in the potcast. JBC had them listed as tknl5haze for $100. There was also the tk/tknl5haze f2 listed for $60. In AK's list he has them listed the same way. The tknl5haze are $100 and the tk/tknl5haze f2 are listed at $60. I guess we'd have to ask AK directly to find out for sure. So far mine are all looking very uniform except one is noticeably more frosty than the others.
I was told by Ak that "I was speaking of Waco as the one that knocks people out" on the pot cast. I got my pack of Tknl5haze back in may and it was $100 compared to the rest of his gear that was $60. I got like 18 seeds in the pack too!

After smoking on my harvest for a while now. One thing I can definitely say is the Tknl5haze is strong. And it doesn't matter what else you been smoking on all day.....the Tknl5haze will cut right through all the rest.

DJs line is thai heavy. Akbb believes himself that it has nothing whatsoever to do with DJ short and that there is no thai in her at all. He said the cut was 30 or 40 years old, I would have to go back and look.

Waco is a Nl5haze that's supposed to be super potent and give you a really fucked up stone. Like literally, driving and not even knowing where you were going, or parking at the wrong house type of high is how he explained it to me.

I am running the Americanna which he told me was just like that and it has WACO in the cross. He also said Americanna was in his top 2 stinkiest offerings.

It does get confusing. I'm still confused about the Black Dom crosses. There was the story of the Aussie guy who freaked out on the black dom x tknl5haze and it was supposedly the sohum black dom used, but then he said he never released any sohum crosses. Hoo nose... I just want to grow some good weed haha...
After reading the comments in here I've decided to Run my Black Dom Bx freebies I got from AK next( 6 seeds). From what I gathered from AK's original instagram post this is a bx of the cut Mrbobhemp hill picked up at the emerald cup back in 2017-18. Aprently this cut won 1st place that year. The bx was Blk Domx nw hash plant bred to F3 then BX'd to F1 males.

completely different genetics? interesting. I have a kink goosebay bb cross from him. Any idea which one this is? DJ short or something else? thanks
I don't know which one it is, but I'm very familiar with the Knik Goosebay Road. :D
Alaska has a very transient population, even more so back then. People would bring weed into the state from all around.
Most of us came from Washington, Oregon, California and Idaho. So whatever was making the rounds there and then would end up here.
DJs line is thai heavy. Akbb believes himself that it has nothing whatsoever to do with DJ short and that there is no thai in her at all. He said the cut was 30 or 40 years old, I would have to go back and look.
I first had Blueberry in the early 90's long before I'd ever heard of DJ Short.
But maybe he was an underground pioneer of the flavor? Hard to say not knowing.
I do remember back until around 2000 that Blueberry was very much an Indica and something happened to DJ's work since then.

Idelwilder, I had three phenos and took each one within the breeders recommended harvest window. I took the first at 56, second at 60 and the third at 64. All were looking ready at the time. I tried uploading the third plant but for some reason it's not working. It looks closer to the other purpled plant. The red & yellow plant was the one that is very sticky.

Wow... I turned my head for a moment and this thread exploded into all kinds of great discussion... lots of stuff I'm particularly interested in. Thanks guys! I've been wondering about that Blueberry for a while...I grabbed a freebie pack without knowing much of anything. The part about it pre-dating DJ Short had me scratching my head. I'm assuming it at least has a pronounced blueberry flavor, right? Anybody know what kind of buzz you get?

Thanks for the info. I’m planning on running my pack this fall/winter, along with a couple other AKBB offerings to see what’s what and maybe make some old school crosses

I'm running some Blk Domina/NW Hash plant x Super skunk, outdoor this year. They're only about four or five inches tall and smell amazing already.

so if he was talking about Waco, what did he use in the tknl5haze?

Well it appears my order for Consumption hasn't made it to Labyrinth. I mailed it Monday and got an email yesterday as a courtesy before they cancel the order. If it got lost in the mail that would be a first for me in hundreds of orders I've placed over the years.
