What happens when you cross a pure Afghan with a Northern Lights and a Skunk? You get an Indica Crystal Extreme aka ICE plant that is fully covered in resin glands. The buds produced by this magnificent hybrid were so frosty, so sparkling, there seemed no more fitting a name than ICE. For any grower that enjoys making hash from their plants, this is the best feminized variety from Royal Queen Seeds for making hash.
Our Ice Feminized, being an indica dominant like the original, is a very short plant growing no more than 1 m tall. Although short in height, pinching or topping can force it to bush out sideways, producing a bigger yield. Growers will observe this cannabis plant displaying classic Indica features with big fat leaves. Sometimes removing the fan leaves on top will allow the lower branches to grow more.
Our ICE feminized seed isn’t the biggest producer, yielding about 55-65 g per plant, or 300-400 g per square metre under a 600w light. It prefers a warm climate like Spain or California and will not flower too well in northern Europe (UK, Netherlands).
ICE feminized from Royal Queen Seeds will be ready 8 weeks after flowering; however, a lot of growers leave it longer, until 10 weeks, to maximise the resin content. During its flowering period, we are sure you will find ICE one of the most beautiful Cannabis plants to grow as it simply shines with resin glands.
While ICE Feminized might not be our biggest yielder, it makes up for that with its smoke. The heavy indica dominant, with its frosty-covered nuggets, all combine to produce a heavy, physical stone. This is a classic couch-lock cannabis strain that leaves smokers so relaxed and chilled-out that users are advised to use just before bedtime. Veteran smokers who seek a battle for breakfast need seek no further that our ICE feminized.
What ICE lacks in yield it will make up for with hash-making; Ice-o-lator, Ear wax, Buddha etc. We are certain that even the biggest hash head will be pleased with the produce from leftover plant material. No other marijuana plant from Royal Queen Seeds is as suited for hash production as ICE.
Brainstorm Feminized is a successful result of breeding experiments with two famous marijuana strains, Northern Lights and Haze Original. They were first brought into the modern cannabis market in 1996 with the name “HempStar” and almost instantly became popular. These seeds developed solid plants with good yields of marijuana with long lasting and powerful high. Nothing seemed to be improved, however, Dutch Passion breeders brought these seeds through some further experiments in 1998 and 2008 by selecting a premium clone from the original seed stock. The strain of Brainstorm today is a stabilized version of a HempStar and represents a F1 hybrid with a strong cerebral high. Her cannabis seeds are very consistent and show an excellent rate (9 seeds out of 10) of germination. They produce sturdy cannabis plants which combine both sativa and indica qualities. High flower to leaf ratio, compact buds, good yields and exceptional resin production are a few of the characteristics displayed by this wonderful plant. Brainstorm is a good variety for indoor and outdoor cultivation. Growing indoors, she responds well to any growing methods. Plants of this marijuana variety do not cause any particular problems if you remember not to overfeed her. They may also show some distress if you keep lights to close to the leaves and do not let the air flow. After being upgraded in 2008, Brainstorm strain became highly adapted to outdoor growing, fantastic for gardens where smell is an unfavourable factor. When grown outside, she can reach gigantic size of as high as 2.5 m while indoor variety keep petite and won’t grow taller than 120 cm. This cannabis lady is said to be one of the strongest in the world (THC content is said between 18 and 20%) with a nice sweet taste. The flowering time is really good, just 7-8 weeks, with large flowers turning into chunky hairy nuggets. Harvesting when grown outdoors is November with a great yielder. Brainstorm is perfect for cloning. Some marijuana growers top the plants to bush them up and get more cuts for cloning. A free tip – take cuts 20 minutes after fresh watering and youâ€™ll be nicely surprised with the result. Brainstorm marijuana is a perfect choice for those who desire a heavy, lethargic stoned effect. The smoke is full bodied yet somewhat neutral in flavour. The taste is pungent with a sweet after taste. Sex : Feminized Type : Sativa Flowering : Photoperiod Genetics : Northern Lights #5 x Haze Flowering Time : Long Outdoor Harvest : November Height : Medium THC Level : Unknown Characteristics : solid, strong long lasting
Edelweiss (literally ‘noble white’) was named after the famous white flower which grows in the high Alps, Though the bulky Indica buds and the delicate white blooms of the mountain flower may not look similar at first glance, they share qualities such as the star shaped leaflets around the flower-tops and the thick white coating on those leaves. Naturally, in the case of the cannabis strain, this is coating is sticky resin that also frosts the buds.
For a brief period, Edelweiss ganja could be found growing in all across Switzerland, in much greater abundance than its namesake. Those tolerant days are sadly over, but Edelweiss cannabis lives on as an indoor, feminised strain.
Made from a blend of Hindu Kush, North Indian and Skunk, this is a mostly-Indica hybrid with just enough Sativa background to perk up the powerful stone.
