One of the most popular genetic straits among Spanish growers is Jack Herer. Its results outdoors are legendary. With genetics from a highly experienced grower (who began back in the Seventies and is still growing today, exclusively with his own crosses), the clones we were given were a cross between Jack Herer and a male Morocco-sourced sativa plant that was good for producing hash and had a characteristic fresh-lemon flavour. After improving it with endogamous crosses, we achieved a high-yield Jack Herer with two dominant phenotypes: indica (fast-growing) for indoors and sativa (but early flowering) that is ideal for outdoors.
It had the psychedelic effects that are characteristic of sativa varieties. In this case we used the reversed pollen from this variety to pollinate one of our champion indica mother plants, and the results were incredible. A hybrid with structure, flavour and sativa effects, but with the extra yield and faster flowering times of an indica. The resulting plant had an excellent calyx-to-leaf ratio and from the first few weeks of flowering becomes covered in a thick coat of resin. The smell given off by the stems when rubbed is particularly striking. The leaves are average sized, narrow, fairly serrated and a colour that tends towards a dark lime-green colour, a good indicator that it is not being fertilised adequately.
A lush-growing plant, it is advisable to let it have a 12-to-15-day vegetative cycle. The roots struggle to break out of the plant pot, forming a thick root network. Be careful not to allow too long a vegetative cycle, though, or it could get out of hand. It has the typical sativa structure, with a large central tail from which numerous side branches sprout to run parallel with the central one for much of the flowering period. The stems are very robust from first growth. No problems with mould or other fungi have been found, nor any problems worthy of note with spiders, thrips or greenfly. Outdoors the plant will grow no taller than 2 m, although this is made up for with its outward growth, which can cover several square metres. By topping you can achieve a large number of strong branches and hundreds of cuttings. You can increase the EC gradually, week by week, because the plant withstands high EC levels well, turning them into compact flowers.
You will achieve abundant harvests with a high THC concentration and surprisingly hard buds. Make sure you cure Afrodita well to bring out its incense and pine flavours. This plant adapts easily to all sorts of different climates in Spain and Portugal, proving itself in different outdoor conditions with vigorous growth and resin development. It produces a rich hash when extracted with ice. Outdoors it will be ready for harvested outdoors by the third week in September or by the first week in October for the more sativa-rich phenotype. Indoors it will be ready in eight weeks, although if you give it nine, the results will be extraordinary.
This is our cross between an NY Diesel XXX from the United States that was passed on to us by a good grower from Barcelona (hence its name, in homage to the strain’s city of birth) and a very indica-rich Afghan plant from Dutch growers. The resulting cross flowers early and is quite a lot more productive than the original Diesel. To keep the cross stable, we crossed the variety again with our Black Domina. After a long selection process of the resulting varieties, we opted for the one with the most noticeable Diesel characteristics that met our parameters for yield and speed of growth. The resulting hybrid combines all the vigorous growth and yield of an indica with the structure, smell and flavour of the original Diesel.
When growing your first BCN crop, you should bear in mind that it can reach a considerable size in next to no time, and owing you should also remember that the vigour of the hybrid means that the plant will grow quite a few centimetres more once it has started flowering. We recommend about 15-20 days’ growth (from seed) before switching to flowering.*
*All growing times should be adapted to the size of the plant pot and the available growing area.
When flowering, the plant demands large amounts of fertiliser, although the lemon-green colour of the leaves may mislead you into thinking that it needs more. This is not usually the case. Try to keep the EC levels during flowering between 1.8 and 2.2 so as not to over-fertilise the plant and saturate the roots.
From the beginning the plant gives off a penetrating odour, which becomes a “stench” throughout the flowering cycle.
The best results with this variety are obtained outdoors using a chemical (mineral compound) fertiliser. That way you will bring out all the Diesel flavour while making the most of all of the indica component’s yield potential. Indoors the plant is notable for being well-suited genetically for SOG growing.
BCN Diesel will be ready in eight weeks, although certain seeds may need another week to reinforce the flavour and ripen properly. We therefore recommend using carbohydrates from the second week of flowering onwards.
The effects of this plant are quite psychedelic but very smooth, lively and energetic. Ideal for creative types.
Your harvest will consist of buds heavily laden with trichomes that will give you an insatiable appetite. After a short burst of activity a sense of relaxation will wash over your whole body. Owing to its high THC levels it is recommended for medicinal use.
When launching a variety with hopes of super yield, it would be a mistake to overlook the issue of flavour (something that growers frequently complain about). This was the original idea behind Big Band, which is a cross between a Bubblegum, selected for its predominant flavour and aroma, and a Chronic male (both from the Serious Seeds bank). The cross had a bubblegum flavour but with an fermented aftertaste and the typical structure of an indica, with a large central bud and sparse branching in the lower parts.
We used the reversed pollen of this variety to pollinate one of our fruitier Black Domina mothers, obtaining a hybrid with greater branching in the lower parts, with a predominance of indica and fairly rapid flowering.
This hybrid also outperforms its predecessor in terms of both yield and flavour — now definitely one of this variety’s plus points. It tends to stretch out a lot when growing, although without growing to a very great height.
It is precisely this vigorous growth that makes it an ideal variety for selecting a mother. It produces long, healthy cuttings, which, if pruned adequately, will grow by the dozen within a short time of making a cut.
Outdoors the plant is unlikely to grow any taller than 1.80 m, but you should use a support system to prevent the large central bud and heavy side branches from bending too much.
It is a plant that is very easy to grow, since the variety is robust and highly resistant to all kinds of pests.
It produces compact flowers with an excellent calyx-leaf ratio. From the fourth week of flowering the resin is already very abundant and it will end up covering all the buds and surrounding leaves. It forms numerous clusters of flowers that harden when first fed with P-K.
Indoors, excellent results are obtained growing in five-litre plant pots, with coconut and a drain-to-waste drip-watering system. The plants should grow no taller than 60-70 cm for an abundant yield. The flowering cycle ends after 58-61 days.
Outdoors, you should be ready to harvest by the end of September, so avoiding the first rains of autumn.
When smoked, the first few tokes produce a deep, heavy feeling, which is then transformed into a state of relaxation. Ideal when you’re stressed out. The tangy strawberry and lemon flavour sticks to your palate to leaving a strong flavour of fruit gums.
This variety gets its name from its citrus appearance, changing from a lemon yellow to an orangey shade. Sticky like its pulp. The flavour, while still fruity, tends more towards fruit gums, confirming its Bubblegum connections.The Citral strain is one of the best known in Europe, particularly in Spain, Portugal and the UK, where it enjoys legendary status among more experienced growers. It stands out for its adaptability to the most extreme climates, including mountain areas, thanks to its origins in the Hindu Kush. The variety has been selected and improved by self-fertilisation. Unfortunately, we lost the original mother a few years ago, but not before stabilising a cross with a Kush variety that was brought from Iran. A predominantly indica hybrid, short in stature and with little branching.It produces a large amount of resin and the branches produce dense, compact bunches of flowers. But although the typical Citral flavour was still present, it was masked somewhat by the toughness of the Kush flavour. That’s why we decided to cross it with our most flavoursome Bubblegum, resulting in a plant with an amazing mixture of flavours. Trying it is like sipping a tropical-fruit milkshake. It’s a tough plant, highly resistant to fungus and insects and very easy to grow.
The Bubblegum contribution to the final structure can be seen on the lower branches, which produce lots of heavy buds. We recommend extending growth to allow these branches to grow, as they can produce a considerable number of flowers. Although a thick central bud will form, we recommend topping to achieve several main branches. It produces a large amount of trichomes, which, together with the yellowish tint that the buds take on as they ripen, make the plants look as if they’ve been bathed in honey — reminiscent of how “charas” is extracted in the Hindu Kush.
Flowering may take up to 60 days indoors, although less will usually be sufficient and some specimens may be ready within 53 days. It’s a very good plant for outdoor growing, as it will be ready for harvesting by late September. It’s a high-yield cross, generating over 500 grams per square metre indoors and over 400 grams per plant outdoors, where it can grow to occupy an area of several square metres.
It produces delicious hash and we recommend trying this variety with a vaporiser.
Super Silver Haze is one of the world’s best-known Haze varieties. The strong smell of incense, spices, eucalyptus, paprika and several more hints that we can’t quite identify…. We knew what we were looking for by using the reversed pollen of this variety to pollinate one of our own varieties, the result of crossing Jack Herer with Black Domina: our Haze version of Black Jack. It took us a long time to isolate this phenotype, but it’s been worth it — the results are simply sensational.
A hybrid with a sativa-rich structure, with really fast flowering times. It grows long branches with well-proportioned internodes, which become filled with flowers. Plants with dark, broad leaves, although producing many flowers, maintaining a highly stable calyx-leaf ratio. Indoors you should leave it around 15 days for vegetative growth for a good yield.
Owing to the high proportion of sativa in its genetics, you’ll need to watch out for its nutritional needs (especially during flowering) to optimise its performance in terms of psychoactivity, flower production and flavour. Growing to 70-80 cm indoors (in 7-litre pots) it’ll give you an abundant crop.
We recommend using a soil substrate with organic fertilisers when growing this variety. Domina Haze is ideal for growing outdoors, where it will realise all its potential for high yield and a great flavour. When pruned adequately, it should give you bushes that are several square metres in circumference.
A sturdy plant with vigorous hybrid growth both in its vegetative cycle and during flowering.
It’s ideal for SCROG or for redirecting to optimise the crop. And if pruned it will produce several central tails and branch out even more.
It flowers within 60-65 days indoors and outdoors it should be ready by the first week in October. Very short flowering times for a plant with such a notable sativa component.
It is advisable to “trim” it of any leaves that hinder optimal Light absorption, as well as any leaves or branches that might cause the plant to waste energy when flowering. When you try this variety, the high is steady and stimulating, but without making you edgy. Ideal for winding down after a hard day’s work.
The smell will have everyone around you turning round and staring with envy. Because Haze is something else, in a different league.…
Diesel genetics in the United States basically come from two or three legendary mothers that generated even more generated X clones. One of these is Chemdog D Clone (Chemdog x Kush), which gave rise to such varieties as Sour Diesel. For our selection we took the flowering time into account, as some commercial NYC Diesel varieties have a flowering time that is too long for novice growers. We made a selection from over de 2000 regular seeds from a mother plant that an American friend of ours had on the Costa del Sol. He told us that its mother in turn was a direct descendent of the legendary D Clone (elite clone), improved only endogamously. A hybrid that has become stabilised over the years and has adapted well to the climate of southern Spain.The smell of the females that we selected was incredibly intense, and the flowering time was over 10 weeks, with the more sativa-rich varieties needing 12 weeks. To shorten these flowering times, we decided to cross it with a mother of our ultra-fast-flowering Afrodita#1. The result is a 70%-sativa hybrid, but with a fast flowering time of only 60-65 days. Some will flower even earlier and not grow as tall (the average height indoors is 1.20-1.40 m). Outdoors the plant may grow to over 2 m tall. It produces woody stems with a short internode. As the plant grows vigorously, we recommend very long vegetative cycles. You’ll need to stay on top of the issue of feeding it, because it demands large amounts of fertilisers and additives (particularly chelate compounds).Optimal assimilation will depend on the grower’s control of EC (1.2 during growth; 1.8-2.0 during flowering) and pH (5.8-6.2).The plant’s preferred substrate has proved to be organic soil in large plant pots, to optimise root growth, as they tend to colonise the growing medium quickly in a well-aerated substrate. Growing by flooding in pools has resulted in abundant yields of over 500 g/m2. People say that the effect and flavour varies according to whether you grow NYD with a chemical or organic fertiliser. The flavour is a mixture of fine woods, fresh acidic fruit and diesel. Piquant, producing large amounts of resin, and large bunches of flowers that harden after six or seven weeks of flowering, the plant will need more P-K and gradually higher EC to reach 2.2 by the eighth week. We strongly advise using carbohydrates or molasses after the second week of flowering to bring out all the flavour of one of the all-time-great varieties. It covers several square metres of space both outdoors and indoors, as it is a lushly-branching plant with a high leaf density. A highly stable variety that will give you at the most two phenotypes, making it ideal for using “Sea of Green”.
We wanted to work with original genetics to offer growers some different varieties. Kannabia Special has been created specially for growers who are beginners.
It’s a plant with very noticeable indica features such as its structure and size. The combination of Early Pearl x Skunk (from Switzerland and extra-fast to flower) and our own Black Domina results in a hybrid that is almost 100% indica. It adapts very well to any climate or altitude. Outdoors, it can reach all its potential with plants that are 1.60 m tall, giving numerous buds full of trichomes, although some plants may reach over 2 m tall.
It’s very easy to grow, withstanding all kinds of stress and even the most radical pruning to increase the yield (particularly good on the lower branches).
Indoors, it’s best to grow it in 7-to-10-litre pots for optimal results. The plant forms thick stems that give off a very sweet smell when rubbed. The flowers tend to thicken out to form dense, compact bunches on each node of the plant.
The sativa component of Early Pearl combines with the indica of Black Domina to produce a plant that grows vigorously with a very small internode and large rich-green leaves. Thanks to its heritage, Kannabia Special is a strong plant that is resistant to attack by all kinds of insects and mould (provided that rainfall is not continuous), despite forming a very dense flower structure. Indoors, from clones, its growth needs to be controlled, as it would be very risky to extend it longer than 15 days.
With seeds, a vegetative period of three weeks will result in plants that are 35-40 cm tall and ready to start flowering. The flowering cycle usually lasts about seven weeks, although some plants may take eight weeks to ripen fully.
Outdoors they will be ready by the second or third week in September. Although not a particularly “hungry” variety, it happily accepts large amounts of fertiliser. Assimilating the nutrients well is the key to getting the very best out of this variety, so you should ensure that you get the pH and EC levels right, keeping the pH between 5.7 and 6.2 and the EC between 1.6 and 2.2.
The flavour is reminiscent of acidic fruit and coffee, with a piquant edge to it. The effect is a mixture between sativa and indica, with a fairly “trippy” high that comes on quickly, stabilising into to a nice, relaxing sense of well-being.
As one of the leading motivations of our team at Kannabia Seeds is to get back to our roots, we wanted to pay homage to all those who were impressed by the “WHITE” family. From its long lineage we have tried to focus our selection by prioritising flavour, yield and strength (because of its medicinal qualities).
The cross is the result of careful selection of Great White Shark and Snow White (La Blanca’s original genotype), which is what we found to match our selection parameters most closely. GWS is well known for its high THC and CBD levels as well as its medicinal properties, as an appetite enhancer and peripheral muscle relaxant. Its Skunk #1 heritage adds sweetness to a penetrating smell from the end of the growth period and beginning of flowering.
To stabilise this plant, we crossed it once again with a predominantly indica White Widow. This cross gives it a shorter flowering time — eight weeks indoors and by mid-September outdoors. The yield is fairly high for a hybrid with touches of sativa (such as the structure): around 500 grams per square metre. It responds well to very small amounts of fertiliser, so you must be very careful not to over-fertilise. I
t’s quite a “skunky” plant, so you should be take smell issues into account from the early stages of growing. We recommend growing in five-litre pots with a coconut substrate and drip-watering system for the best results. With a height of 70-85 cm indoors you can obtain an abundant harvest. Thee plants may reach up to 3 m when grown outdoors.
The resin concentration is astonishing, delighting any grower who sees all those huge “sugary” buds. Resin production can be stimulated further by leaving the variety in the dark for the last few days before cutting. To enhance the flavour we recommend using carbohydrates from the initial stages of flowering. The open-armed structure will give you hefty buds laden with resin, like shark’s teeth.
When you grow La Blanca you’ll see that despite its wildness (it grows and flowers with great vigour) it’s very easy to grow and withstands even the most extreme conditions. After subjecting La Blanca to the toughest guerrilla crops we have no hesitation in recommending this technique for splendid, surprising results. Recommended indoors for SCROG.
The best thing about varieties like AK-47 is that offer a short flowering time for a hybrid that mixes some very sativa-rich varieties. The Ortega parent in its genetic make-up makes it quick to ripen, even when you think that the plant is going to need several weeks more. The AK-47 we selected had this characteristic, and when we crossed it with one of our Northern Lights the flowering time was shortened to eight weeks, so it will be ready to harvest by the end of September. A plant that shows all its potential of a typical indica/sativa hybrid (60/40%) when grown outdoors. If planted in April, it will grow to at least two metres and tends to cover a large area in terms of square metres occupied.
For optimal outdoor growing you should take care over both the substrate you use and the growing area chosen. Fertilise in winter so that the soil assimilates all the nutrients through decomposition. Make the most of sunny days to cover it with black plastic and practise solarisation to get rid of any insects that might attack the roots.
Recommended for novice growers because it is easy to work with, La Reina gives no trouble when growing, forming thick stems on the trunk and on the branches. The slim, serrated leaves — typical of AK varieties — have a dark lemon-green colour. The internode is short and the plant starts to branch out during the early growth stages to produce a large bushy plant. With controlled growing indoors you can achieve a spectacular, super-high-yield “Sea of Green”.
Don’t let this plant grow for too long indoors; two weeks will be enough for you can keep its exuberant growth under control. Good results can be obtained with a height of 60 cm.
Although it doesn’t need large amounts of fertiliser, you should try to monitor the EC so that does not fall short. The leaves will start to turn noticeably yellow. Organic growing is best for this plant. Applying the right amounts of good earthworm humus and bat guano to the substrate will be sufficient, combined with regular watering.
Flowering is exuberant, with large, heavy bunches of flowers that never seem to stop appearing. Heavy, compact buds with a reddish colour, laden with resin. Produces good hash. The flavour is one of acidic tropical fruit leaving a slightly piquant aftertaste on the palate.
The most difficult genotype in our entire catalogue is a three-way cross featuring the best of several predominantly indica strains. One of these is one of the most indica-rich Blueberries that we have, with a very high yield and maintaining all the properties that this variety is known for (short height, fast flowering and a bluish tone).
Another of the components is an original Afghan (Mazar-i-Sharif), a very good resin producer that also gives a generous harvest. The final ingredient in this indica cocktail is our Black Domina, which gives it a more ramified structure when grown outdoors or indoors in seven-to-ten-litre pots, and more height than the results of the first crosses.
Even so, the plant forms a thick central bud, hardening because of the number of flowers that form overlapping bunches. The plant starts to form crystals as soon as it begins to flower, eventually becoming covered in a thick coat of sticky resin, like large drops of caramel. It immediately produces trichomes with lime-green heads, and by the time it has nearly finished it has a whitish/golden appearance with a penetrating smell. When subjected to low temperatures the colour turns a bluish purple. It forms thick, healthy cuttings that are suitable for cloning.
Median nodes develop with huge, fat leaves. It withstands large amounts of fertiliser when growing and is resists to periods of drought very well. Indoors we recommend using a lot of wattage to optimise the crop’s results (800W/m2). The recommended vegetative cycle indoors is two weeks for a good yield. With hydroponic systems the results are particularly impressive and quick to ripen.
It works very well outdoors, occupying a circumference of several square metres. We recommend propping it well to support the weight of the buds. With good pruning, the plants will grow into large bushes up to 2 m tall.
The flowering cycle is 58-65 days, so it will be ready for harvesting in early September. We recommend using carbohydrates to bring out all the flavour. The smell is very deep, with a hint of bitter orange. The high is fast and deep, lifting you up and making you float before firmly bringing you back.
Very high THC levels. Produces a very strong hash when extracted with ice.
A predominantly sativa hybrid despite being crossed with a fast, high-yield Afghan female.
We have stabilised the cross between Blueberry and Mazar with a subsequent cross with another Blueberry mother with more sativa structural parameters, to give it a more ramified, taller structure, producing plants that grow vigorously and form thick stems, ready to bear the weight of the flowers that this variety produces.
The flower bunches overlap on the branches, filling the internodes with compact, thick flowers.
Try to give it the preventive treatment it needs outdoors, since such a compact floral structure makes it hard to act against pest attack. When growing this variety demands large quantities of nitrogen to ensure that its development is optimal.
We recommend an indoor vegetative cycle of 20 days to reach a height of 40 cm and induce flowering.
Look for the least humid part of your house and get ready for this plant’s monster crops. Devise some kind of mechanism to help the branches to support the heavy buds and protect the plants well against the first rains of autumn, since this variety may take nine-to-ten weeks indoors and up to the second week in October outdoors before it’s ready to harvest, although those with a more indica phenotype may be ready by late September.
We recommend using carbohydrates from the beginning of the second week of flowering to develop all this variety’s aftertaste.
The fruity flavour of Blueberry becomes mixed with a pure Afghan flavour.
Increase the P-K levels from the fifth week of flowering to make the flower bunches more compact.
You may want to increase the EC levels to 2.4 in the final weeks of flowering. Ideal for topping to create a large number of flower-laden branches.
Original Berry is very high-yield plant: up to 600 grams per plant and 500 grams per square metre indoors. A stratospheric high will take you to infinity and beyond.
This variety is strong and tough. Suitable for medicinal uses. A relaxing, sedative effect, ideal for insomniacs. The wait will definitely be worth it, and you can expect to cover a large area with a single plant.
The Top 10 varieties of superclassics are represented by this variety, which has given its name to the marijuana plant in many countries. The name Skunk refers to the extremely strong smell that it gives off (both when flowering and when smoked). A classic plant that was originally created in Holland and is now probably the best-known of all marihuana varieties. It was the first sinsemilla variety, and also the first stabilised hybrid developed for indoor growing.Skunk # 1 originated in California’s Bay Area in the 1970s. The original Skunk hybrids were a cross between 25% Afghan, 25% Acapulco Gold and 50% Colombian Gold. After countless generations of intensive selection and re-crossing, the best Skunk plants were stabilised into the first genetically pure indica-sativa hybrid: Skunk #1. Owing to the strength of this Cannabis variety, “skunk” is often used to refer to any kind of strong marihuana. Skunk # 1 is considered as a benchmark for a reliable, uniform performance, and its genotype has had a huge influence on many modern hybrids.To stabilise it and acclimatise it to our local conditions, we crossed this Skunk plant with our own Black Domina — a plant that gives it a higher yield and stabilises the end of the flowering cycle at eight weeks. Although this is the fastest variety we have yet done, some very indica-rich phenotypes may even finish and ripen fully in only seven weeks. This plant’s background is really quite special. The most indica part can be seen in the density of buds and the fat, broad, dark-green leaves. Its growth while flowering is self-evident after only a few days.This stage is when the vigour of the hybrid really comes into its own. Excellent results with drain-to-waste drip-watering systems. Fat, compact buds with a large number of trichomes.Even though it’s a short plant, it’s very tall for a Skunk, although outdoors it may tend to grow “bushy” and occupy many square metres. By planting later (mid-to-late April) the results will be shorter in height but with an equally good yield. It has large pistils that form gorgeous calyxes filled with trichomes and forming large buds.A very high-yield plant both indoors and outdoors, reaching up to 350 grams per plant or 450 grams per square metre indoors.It conserves the typical Skunk flavour with shades of tangy fruit. A plant that combines super-high yield with ease of growth, even for non-experts.
