Hey, thought I’d run though my notes on some of the plants I grew this summer.

You’d read this just for awareness for different cultivars. You may see these offered in the retail market, or you might consider growing them yourself. I’m doing this write up to get the notes down somewhere.

NOTES ON THIS GROW

All plants were grown DWC hydro. Six plants per 100L reservoir.  Nutrients come from an aquarium. Total of 3 reservoirs in a 50 square foot space. I tried to limit growth to 3-5 nodes per plant, generally keeping them to ~2′ square per plant.

I kept the dry sift separate for each plant, and that’s the end product I’ll be making these notes from.

TGA SUBCOOL’S DEADLIGHTS

Selected this female from a package of regular Deadlights. Makes large jagged leafs, appears large in stature within a fairly stout structure. The lowers can get unruly.

I think it’s a delight to grow. Not sure the chemotype of the plant yet.

Gifted cuttings to family and friends. Kept the plant.

LINEAGE

AC/DC x Pennywise

SCENT

Smooth earth. Blended with a subtle spice, like nutmeg. Near monotone, low frequency.

TASTE

Primarily earth with silky sheen. Touch of sweet powder at the top side. Floral exhale, sharing space with the sweet earth tones; brings a second dimension to an arguable imbalanced profile.

THE CALI CONNECTION CBD OG

Grown from female seed. Plant is hybrid. Topped once. Extensive branching, and stacking along the node. Lowers were difficult to keep off the top of the container. Grew well beyond the 2 foot square space. Appeared to be a heavy feeder.

LINEAGE

TCC’s CBD OG has two different lineages, depending on if they’re feminized or regular seeds.

Lion’s Tabernackle is the similarity between the two, said to be a cross of an unknown cultivar and something called Jamaican Lion. The counterpart is an OG; for the feminized seeds I grew the OG was Tahoe S1 (regular seeds are SFV OG).

SCENT

When growing, this plant is pine forward, and bright. Comes off more like a haze than an OG, I’d say.

The dry sift is fairly mute, showcasing earths under a slightly green upturn towards faint peppers.

TASTE

Frontage on the taste is slight citrus fruit accompanied by pine with earthy grease; like a 1-2 punch with a greasy leave, like a slug. Lacks the gritty topside associated with OG Kush, familiar tones shows up in the middle and end.

JORDAN OF THE ISLANDS’ ZEUS

Found in a 12 package of Zeus. Plant had short internode space and made large buds. Topped once. Smelled of warm funk when growing.

LINEAGE

Cactus (Northern Lights x Afghani) x God Bud. (Not sure why this wasn’t called God’s Cactus.)

SCENT

Profile is soiled earths mated to a pine midsection. The topside crescendos into an expanse of dirty funk, speckled with spices as it recedes into the sinus.

TASTE

The taste is primarily soured funk; not rotten, but creamy, chunked up with herbaceous spice, like garlic and chive. Character is offensive, but not aggressive or overly pungent; like a benign fart.

RARE DANKNESS’ COMMERCE CITY KUSH

Freebie seed. Not sure if regular or feminized. Late addition to fill the tent. Grew on the smaller side, didn’t get the full vegetation period.

LINEAGE

Chem #4 x Rare Dankness

SCENT

Topside is a vertical of dirty fuel/diesel, more guttural than vaporous, comes from earthy depth and carries some weight. Midsection is pine, soaked in oil, sinks down into a gritty sludge.

TASTE

Aggressive frontage, with skunked pine under chemical vapour. Exhale is dirty pine, near metallic with a polarizing funk. Character is sharp and cutting.

CANNAVENTURE GRAPEFRUIT D-LITE

Grew multiple plants from a regular seed pack. Homogenous growth throughout the individuals. Manageable size and appears very high yielding for larger plants. Makes fat apical colas with desirable stacking. Easy to trim. Likeable flavour profile. 

LINEAGE

Grapefruit x Chocolope (formally D-Line).

SCENT

Fruity internals with acidic bite. Watery floral tones present at the edges. Low side is sweet, warm and sturdy. Feel is bright, but not peppy.

TASTE

Frontage is breezy citrus, light and airy with slight fizz on a sweet backer. Leave is tropical and tart. Profile is a good composition of notes within a narrow spectrum of tastes.

KARMA GENETICS’ HEADSTASH

Grew from female seed. Long internodes on a medium sized plant. Topped twice. Didn’t prune the lowers enough and they dragged on the top of the reservoir towards the end. Lovely plant, easy to trim, a pleasure to grow.

LINEAGE

(GSC x Cherry Pie x KarmaRado OG) x Biker Kush.

SCENT

Over-sweet gas, earthy pine with eucalyptus herb that inflects near minty taste.

TASTE

Central to the composition are sweetly spiced earths coupled to fruity pine. The pines carry forth in the topside, where they appear more rugged, mixed with some heady petrols. 

GAGE GREEN GROUP BLESSINGS OG

Last of a regular pack that had multiple keepers. Ideal morphology; long internodes with spherical buds. Great definition, fat bracts. Easy to trim. Stands like a wobbly drunk flailing heavy limbs near end of flower.

LINEAGE

Allure OG (Abusive OG) x Joseph OG

SCENT

Wealthy composition of pine and fruit, congealed by pungent earths. Earth tones go deep with petrols and tarry chocolate.

TASTE

Frontage on the flavours are gassy earths with fruity aura, and coarse fade. The leave is sweet and gassy, with side of chocolate sauce.

WORLD’S STRONGEST STRAIN’S MACBURGER

Female selected from a 6 pack of regulars. Late addition. Not topped. Minimal branching. Apical meristem formed great buds with average internode spacing. Stinky when growing. 

LINEAGE

MAC x Donny Burger, both WSS selections.

SCENT

Central to the composition and present in the frontage are full-figured skunks, stinking from charred tire earths, right to the strong pine note on the topside. Notes are skunk, or stained with skunk.

TASTE

Dry flat fruit presents on the frontage, sliding across the palate like a slate block. Skunk and herbed tobacco appear at topside. Dimension of the profile exists in the deeper spectrum of flavours. Character seems heavy, and viscous.

ARCHIVE SEEDS’ RACE FUEL

Multiple females grown. Largest was topped once and made lanky lower branches with explosive stretching well into flowering. Golf ball sized buds with good spacing. Light penetration isn’t an issue. Mild smell until last two weeks of flowering. A dream to trim.

LINEAGE

Face Off OG x High Octane OG

SCENT

Profile is bipolar, with funky gas on topside, over earth cloyed by anise and near minty pine. Character is overbalanced towards active flavours; appears harsh and raspy.

TASTE

Frontage cuts with petrol and pine, leaving a funky garble in the wake. The exhale is floral reduction with ionic chemical and spicy pepper, reminiscent of licking a 9-volt battery. Feel on the profile is strange yet alluring.

SQUID PANT’S BLUE DREAM X PINK KUSH

Feminized seed. Observed intersexual tendencies midway through flower. Moved outdoors mid-summer into sealed 15L water bottle (Kratky). Did not light deprive. Appeared to proceed with flowering regardless.

LINEAGE

HSO Blue Dream x Dr. Underground’s U-Pink Kush

SCENT

Profile is a mix of chocolate earths and fuzzy fruit. Balance favours the fruit aspect, which presents tart in comparison to dessert-like earths softened by sweet florals. Feel is warm and glowing.

TASTE

The sweet earths appear on the frontage, hitting flat on the palate with cocoa and berry. Tropical fruit follows through on the exhale, and is prevalent in the sinus amongst earthy spice with dry cherrywood.

KARMA GENETICS’ COOKIEWRECK X BIKER KUSH

Collaboration with Cannaventure. Selected from regular seed. Medium side plant with shorter internode space. Topped once for this grow. Ok to work with. Makes great flowers.

LINEAGE

Cannaventure CookieWreck x Karma Genetics Biker Kush.

SCENT

Upturned pine swirling with gassy citrus and thin florals, over a pine heavy low end. Punchy composition. Feel is buzzy and opens the sinus.

TASTE

Florals become sickly sweet, annealed over the pungent mixture of fuel, citrus and pine. The floral tone affects both the inhale and exhale, changing the traditional OG character slightly.

DNA GENETICS’ Holy Grail Kush

Feminized seed. Late add. Grew large with vigour. Lolly-popping the lowers required multiple stripping. Low calyx to leaf ratio.

LINEAGE

Kosher Kush x OG#18

SCENT

Scents were more subdued. Most of the grow I felt like this failed to characterize. Dry sift is gassy lemon with raspy earths.

TASTE

Taste profile on the dry sift is more central with secondary pine, the gassy citrus notes seem lost in the fray. A near floral resin note becomes apparent with use. which characterizes the leave on the palate. 

DNA GENETICS’ DJ’S GOLD

Feminized seed. Late add. Grew like mad. Didn’t top. The plant made massive branches while transitioning but didn’t stretch much into flowering; was like a jungle down there. One of the tallest plants. Didn’t take weights, I’d bet this was highest yielding plant of the group.

LINEAGE

Kosher Kush x Blueberry

SCENT

Bright berry and tennis ball rubber overtop sandy earths soiled by grease and rotten garbage funk. Profile is a good mix of enticing and disturbing flavour.

TASTE

Frontage is chalky earth with a flat berry-pear note. Leave is near candied, with tart fruit amongst a burnt rubber reduction. The profile is pervasive, what it lacks in pungency it makes up for with conspicuousness and longevity.

KANNABIA White Domina CBD

Grew two feminized seeds, kept one. Didn’t top. Grew larger, more wide than tall with big lower branches. High leaf ratio, undesirable to trim. Many thin leafs cover colas with displeasing development. Not a great looking plant.

LINEAGE

White Domina x undisclosed CBD bearing plant.

SCENT

Scent during growth is lovely; earthy and floral.

TASTE

As I mention below, I mistakenly mixed this dry sift with Rare Dankness Ox Piss. I have no comment to offer on the tastes besides the observation that this profile doesn’t stand proud of the astringent Ox Piss, it’s barely noticeable in the mix.

KANNABIA MATARO BLUE CBD

Feminized seed. Didn’t top. Grew medium to small sized with tight internode space. Made medium sized branches but stacked good weight along apical meristem. Was pretty stinky by mid flower.

LINEAGE

Mataro Blue x undisclosed CBD bearing plant.

SCENT

Flowers were skunk forward against berry aspect, balanced by floral heavy low tones. Good balance. Character is friendly.

TASTE

Tastes are full blueberry, both the tart and the sweet deep sides, with perfumed earths. A touch of skunk shows on the leave followed by floral berry, which becomes more prevalent in the sinus.

RARE DANKNESS OX PISS

Regular seed pack here. Everything RD gives in the description is true. Growth is manageable but the leaf growth at the node tangles in itself like a rose bush. Indoors, that means access. I pruned this often and it was handy to lean in to do so.

LINEAGE

The Ox x San Diego Cat Piss.

SCENT

Astringent funk with a ton of secondary notes like berry or bitter earths. Not quite offensive but is different and has some allure because of it. 

TASTE

I stupidly mixed this dry sift with the Kannabia White Domina CBD dry sift. I feel like the astringent tastes come through, but it’s hard to determine how the earths show, because it overlaps with the taste profile from the White Domina.

Barney’s Farm Vanilla Kush

Late add from freebie feminized seed. Grew small with thick limbs. Seemed to like the aquaponic water, didn’t appear to be a heavy feeder.  

LINEAGE

Afghani Kush x Kashmir

SCENT

Sweeter afghani notes, hit flat and are noticeable. Has mostly soft sides, like clean laundry tumbling in a dryer.

TASTE

Afghani-type tastes. Shallow in dimension. Notes are prevalent but not pushy or pungent.
