Ultra White Amnesia

Strength

The “Amnesia” part of the name refers to the Amnesia Haze parentage, from which Ultra White Amnesia inherits its 22% average THC. This definitely brings it under the heading of “high-THC strains” and if you’ve only ever tried Indicas before, you’ll notice quite a difference. What’s particularly interesting about Ultra White Amnesia is that the overall effect combines the uplifting and energetic effects of a Haze the solidity of the White Widow side, which serves to steady the high and ensure that the effects are felt in the body as well as the head. As an added bonus, the fact that the high does remain grounded, means that the transition to the body stone is nicely gentle. This means that although Ultra White Amnesia is arguably more of a day strain, we could see it being used at night too.

Yield

Ultra White Amnesia marijuana seeds

In terms of straightforward numbers, yields are pretty decent. Indoors you’re looking at 480 gr/m2 and outdoors you can get up to 500 gr/ plant. It does, however, have to be said that Ultra White Amnesia has a lot of Haze (read Sativa) genetics, which means it likes to stretch and that these days you can get similar yields from much more compact varieties, although you’d probably have to accept lower THC levels. You also have to remember that the Haze family has a bit of a reputation for being both greedy and fussy and frankly, we’d say there was a fair bit of truth in both comments. Ultra White Amnesia certainly likes its food and you’re going to have to be prepared to give it the nutrients it needs to grow (and yield) without going over the score and killing with kindness. Likewise, you’re going to have to stay on top of your standard growing basics (like ventilation) because Ultra White Amnesia just does not forgive mistakes the way some other strains do.

Speed

Auto White Amnesia flowers in 9 weeks, which is longer than most Indicas, but still on the quick side for a strain with such a high percentage of Sativa genetics. You have the White Widow parentage to thank for this. This means that outdoors you’ll harvest towards the latter end of September, so if you live in northern Europe you might want to think a little before deciding if Ultra White Amnesia is really suitable for you. Greenhouse growing could be a reasonable compromise.

Taste

The taste is definitely from the Haze side rather than the White Widow side. It has an earth base, with a fruity body and some sweet top notes, some people say floral. The aroma is definitely on the sweeter, more floral side.

Bag Appeal

Both of Ultra White Amnesia’s parents look good in a bag, so it’s little wonder Ultra White Amnesia does too. The White Widow genetics means the buds are thicker and heftier than you’d expect from a Sativa and they’re absolutely loaded with sticky resin crystals. These nugs are definitely one for the grinder rather than your fingers. Throw in a generous sprinkling of orange pistils and you have a very attractive result.

The Haze family continues to thrive because it offers such a great, happy, clear, energetic high that there are still plenty of people think they’re worth the effort of growing. If you’re one of them then Ultra White Amnesia definitely deserves at least a look, since it is on the easier side of the Haze strains. If you’re a beginner, however, we suggest you wait until you’ve successfully grown photoperiod Indicas before you tackle Ultra White Amnesia.

Kush Doctor

Strength

Kush Doctor marijuana seeds

Kush Doctor can trace its hybrid genetic history through a long line of sativa-dominant strains, with the characteristic cerebral effects shamelessly taking centre stage here. Packing a potent yet far from overpowering 15-18% THC level, Kush Doctor will let you select the right dose of medicine for yourself. This will allow you to casually decide whether you wish to bring a spring to your step in the afternoon at lower quantities, or completely leave the day’s worries behind in a cloud of smoke if that’s what your circumstances demand.

This is no flippant bit of advice either, as the effects of Kush Doctor are well suited to such uses, soothing mind and body with ease. Small quantities will see you still able to function, being especially helpful in social events, whilst higher consumption will give a deep sense of mental bliss and relaxation.

Upon first smoking Kush Doctor you will experience a clear cerebral high that raises your spirits and keeps you able to go about your daily business. You will keep your energy levels up whilst enjoying the effects of the strain, though it is generally recommended that Kush Doctor be enjoyed whilst busying yourself with leisurely pursuits rather than professional ones. Keep smoking and the heady effects are joined by a gentle full-bodied buzz that brings out the relaxing qualities common to strains with OG genetics. These will ease the body and cleanse the mind of negativity, getting you ready to end the day in peace.

Yield

Not the biggest yielder in the world but also far from the most demanding, Kush Doctor will provide you with around 300g per m2. You may find this little plant producing more if you provide it with all the right conditions, but the ease with which the plant grows means you may see diminishing returns if you pour too much time into the fellow.

Speed

Kush Doctor marijuana seeds

Possibly due to the abundance of sativa in its hybrid genetics, Kush Doctor pushes against the shortening influence of its ruderalis side a bit more than most autoflowering strains and will grow to a relatively tall 75-125cm. This is the case whether it is grown indoors or outside, and though it may reach a bit higher than the foot-tall mini strains out there this by no means prohibits Kush Doctor from being a great candidate for a stealth grow. Those who wish to keep the plant at the lower end of its height potential will be pleased to hear that it responds fairly well to training that keeps it from growing too large.

Whilst the indica genes may have bumped the strain’s height up by a few inches, it thankfully does not seem to have had a similar impact on the flowering time, with the plant going from seed to harvest in a fairly swift 75-85 days. These weeks are unlikely to be stressful for the grower either, as Kush Doctor is very easy going and will cope with the kind of inattention and poor technique that would kill off lesser strains.

This resilience extends to handling the outdoors too where the strain will grow and give decent yields even in harsher environments, provided it has some water and light. Those in the northern hemisphere who do wish to take Kush Doctor outdoors can expect their harvests any time between late May and early October.

Taste

Kush Doctor marijuana seeds

Those expecting some nasty tasting medicine will be surprised as this doctor’s prescription is as sweet as Calpol. It is a rather fruity flavour that is more like a citrusy berry than anything else, coming across as sweet and sharp.

There are bits of spice and diesel in here too, all of which are permeated with a kush-like flavour that sits beneath. These more subtle elements may be hidden in the overall taste, but careful attention will reward you with their flavour.

Bag Appeal

If the sweet berries dominate the taste then it is the element of spice that is primarily noticeable in the smell, alongside a new fuel-like note that is barely prevalent in the flavour. If this curious scent were not appealing enough then simply the sight of the plant’s elongated, slender and dense buds may be enough to entice you in.

Medi-Bomb-1-marijuana-seeds-by-bomb-seeds

Medi Bomb #1

Strength

Medi Bomb #1 marijuana seeds

Medi Bomb #1 was designed primarily as a medical strain and consequently its effects should be viewed in that context, even by those looking for the strain to provide a recreational high. This is a medicinal strain with plenty of fun behind it, however, and those who enjoy a good rich sedation will find a lot to love here.

It has a rather strong 15-20% THC level that fuels the tranquillity of the stone, causing some serious couchlock in the process. It may not be the best in social situations but for those after-work hours of freedom there can be little better than sitting back with Medi Bomb #1 and spending the evening in a relaxing blissful daze. Just don’t try to schedule any chores into this time, however, as they will not be completed – this strain is purely for movies and box sets.
Of course the primary component of Medi Bomb #1 is the medical uses it has. These are fuelled by the heavy CBD content of the strain, spreading its calming influence from head to toe. With every muscle in your body relaxed, Medi Bomb #1 begins to work its magic as various worries and lingering doubts are blown right out, allowing you to settle into the moment.

As you sink deeper into its reverie-inducing effects, you will notice how effective the strain can be at making anxiety and depression disappear along with any persistent tension. This sedation naturally doubles as one of the most fantastically effective solutions to insomnia you can try, lulling any troubled minds off to a peaceful sleep. Some also find it useful in dealing with regular pains and aches too, allowing you to enjoy an evening of calm and tranquillity.

Yield

You always need a good supply of medicine to stay healthy, and thankfully Medi Bomb #1 will provide this in abundance. Largely thanks to its productive Bomb #1 parent, Medi Bomb #1 will offer abundant harvests of 500g per m2 indoors. This is an impressive volume for any plant, but is especially admirable given the modest size of the Medi Bomb #1 plant.

Speed

Medi Bomb #1 marijuana seeds

And just how short does Medi Bomb #1 stay? Usually around 70-100cm, making it great for indoor grows of the stealth variety where it can be tucked away quietly. It can be grown in either a hydroponic setup or soil and will reward more attentive growers with bigger yields and higher THC concentrations.

The plant should take only 8 weeks to go from seed to flower, producing abundant bud that we recommend is kept in total darkness for the final few days preceding the harvest to get the most resin development. It will also appreciate being grown in a Sea of Green (SoG) or Screen of Green (ScrOG) setup to assist its dense bushy growth pattern.

Growing outdoors is also a very practical option, with Medi Bomb #1 handling the cooler climates of northern Europe with relative ease. This kind of environment does have a tendency to keep the plant shorter and less vigorous than an indoor grow, however, which often leads to smaller yields too. If you are going to venture outdoors with the strain regardless then you will receive your harvest in late September to early October.

However you decide to grow Medi Bomb #1 the plant will develop with small broad leaves and short internodal points that are clustered close to each other. This gives it a compact bushy appearance that fits its modest height and creates a plant that is easily cared for.

Taste

Medi Bomb #1 marijuana seeds

Medi Bomb #1 is no bitter pill to swallow and with its rich flavour is actually quite a pleasant tasting medicine. The strain is dominated by a combination of sweetness and spiciness with an unusual sourness behind it. This may sound like an odd combination of flavours but it comes together beautifully, creating a taste that is both memorable and lingers long after smoking.

Bag Appeal

These flavours are not so bold in the scent profile and the strain instead gives us notes of skunkiness and earth. This is quite a strong aroma and becomes incredibly moreish after you develop a taste for it. Visually the buds are tight and dense, strangely shaped, and finished with an irresistible coating of white crystally trichomes.

short-rider-auto-marijuana-seeds

Short Rider Autoflower

Top 44 earned its name due to the swift 44 day flowering period it boasts, and Early Special is the ruderalis-based parent that puts the ‘auto’ in Short Rider Auto. Unlike other autoflowering plants, however, Short Rider Auto does not suffer from the unstable genetics and low yields that often mar this type of strain.

Needing no strict lighting schedule and staying small, Short Rider Auto makes the perfect plant for newbies, those with little time, or those simply too lazy to deal with the more demanding plants out there.

Strength

Short Rider Auto marijuana seeds

This is one great strain to unwind in the evening with. Offering a moderate yet above-average THC level that allows enjoyment without knocking you out, Short Rider Auto gives a long-lasting high that will see the hours drift by in a relaxing haze.

The effect is commonly described in terms of its quality, with many smokers claiming the strain provides a deep and enveloping sensation rarely found elsewhere. It begins with a slowly building head buzz that becomes very spacey as it reaches its peak. The rest of the effects gradually follow over the next 20 minutes, with the bodily sensations coming along after the head-based component comfortably settles in.

This bodily side of it involves a healthy dose of couch-lock, making sure you’re relaxing whether you want to or not! This does not make it the best strain to accompany those pesky household tasks, but it will take away the weight of the day’s worries with ease.

Despite this, Short Rider Auto is not the kind of strain to see you in a silent stupor all evening, and in fact may even increase your natural levels of chattiness and sociability. This may be due in part to the clear-headedness and sense of euphoria it gives to accompany its deep relaxing stone.

It is not commonly used as a medicinal strain, but Short Rider Auto may still be useful due to its medium CBD levels. These can assist with issues such as chronic pain and a variety of medical conditions that can interfere with a patient’s quality of life.

Yield

Being such a small fellow it is not surprising that Short Rider Auto is not the most voluminous yielder. This is hardly an issue, as will be explained shortly, and you will find the strain reliably producing 200-300g per m2 when grown indoors.

Speed

Short Rider Auto marijuana seeds

It’s relatively low yields are not to be viewed so negatively, however, as Short Rider Auto is such an easy-growing and undemanding plant that you’ll find it no problem to harvest enough for your needs.

As previously mentioned, its ruderalis genes and indica dominant nature mean that the strain stays at a low height – usually not even reaching a metre tall. This makes it great for stealth grows both indoors and out, but its autoflowering properties mean that it is best kept indoors where you can take advantage with a constant lighting schedule. Indeed, this strain is so small you may even be able to slip a couple of plants into a disused wardrobe or other piece of spacious home storage (provided it has ventilation).

Short Rider Auto will flower in a quick 6 to 8 weeks, allowing any yield-related inadequacies to be overcome by its quick turnover that lets you regularly top up your supply. This short flowering time certainly does not compromise the quality of the bud, and the yield can be maximised by growing the plant in a Sea of Green (SoG) setup. You won’t even need to place it in a separate room to any other ruderalis-tinged strains you may be growing, as their autoflowering properties allow them all to thrive equally when exposed to a constant light source.

Whilst an easy grow, Short Rider Auto does have a small list of demands. These include giving the plant plenty of nutrients and ensuring there is good air circulation around it, combined with the usual pruning that all such plants appreciate.

Taste

Short Rider Auto marijuana seeds

For all their benefits, autoflowering strains are not known for the pleasant complexities of their taste. That is not to say they cannot be enjoyed, however, and Short Rider Auto will be a treat for those who enjoy a skunk and hash-based pungency mixed in with an underlying delicate citrus fruitiness.

Bag Appeal

The scent of the strain closely follows its taste profile. Short Rider Auto doesn’t overpower but certainly lets you know of her presence, offering the same pungency and fruity notes found in the taste.

Its appearance is a fine example of what most will imagine when they visualise bud – a mild earthy green in round fairly dense nugs, inconspicuously promising the fun it gives in spades when smoked.

Berry-Bomb-Auto-Marijuana-seeds

Berry Bomb Auto

Why do so many great strains emerge from the Netherlands? There are likely plenty of reasons for this, but the most important thing is that we continue to get beauties like Berry Bomb Auto available for our enjoyment. Created with the intent of making an autoflowering version of the original Berry Bomb, this newest iteration by Bomb Seeds does just that and plenty more.

Berry Bomb was a fortuitously sublime strain created by crossing Blueberry and Bomb #1 and proved to be incredibly popular. Of course developing a new ruderalis imbued version of any classic will always be a risk, and it takes deftness and skill to pull off such a feat with success. Luckily those smart people at Bomb Seeds had the confidence to give it a shot, and in this case it seriously paid off.

The result of their skilful dabblings was Berry Bomb Auto, a strain that kept the powerful growth and incredible taste of the original whilst imbuing it with autoflowering properties. Some even disregard the notion that the ruderalis component’s inclusion did anything to diminish the original’s power and charm, making Berry Bomb Auto the perfect upgrade if ever there was one.

Strength

Berry Bomb Auto marijuana seeds

Those prone to treating autoflowering strains with disregard due to their perceived lack of potency need to spend an evening or two with Berry Bomb Auto. Its 15-20% THC level will catch the condescending off guard with a blast that will blow you backwards into the sofa and keep you there with its indica-dominant grip.
Having said this, there is a 15% sativa component to Berry Bomb Auto that complements its 85% indica effects and is actually felt before the bodily side begins. This comes in the form of a gentle cerebral buzz that is far from overpowering and effectively clears the mind in preparation for the thick physical effects that are to follow.

This mild but welcome mental component raises your spirits and soon gives way to a couch-locking indica rush that is perfect for evening and late-night use, or even to usher in an afternoon nap. Naturally these effects can have medical as well as recreational uses, and the 1% CBD level of Berry Bomb Auto greatly assists this.
Its physically relaxing effects can be used to ward off stress and its sedating nature can banish insomnia even with moderate quantities consumed. Your appetite will also get a good boost from Berry Bomb Auto’s munchies-inducing properties, while some find it sometimes assists in handling depression and alleviating physical pains.

Yield

Berry Bomb Auto is no monster yielder but when grown in good conditions will supply you with a very reasonable amount of bud. Skilled growers should be able to coax 300-350g per m2 of high quality nugs out of the strain.

Speed

Berry Bomb Auto marijuana seeds

For an indica dominant ruderalis mixed strain this certainly is one tall plant, reaching a lanky 70-120cm in height. This is all relative, however, and even at its tallest will still offer an easily concealed and hardy growing plant that is anything but high maintenance. Flowering in only 6 to 8 weeks, Berry Bomb Auto will demand very little attention from you, though it will do well in a Screen of Green (ScrOG) setup due to its thick single kola and spacious intermodal distances. It also seems to do very well in a hydroponic setup, though more particular growers prefer to keep it in soil to enhance the flavour that Berry Bomb Auto is so well known for.

Outdoor growers shouldn’t have too much difficulty either, the disease and mould resistant genetics of the plant keeping it healthy and its tough nature letting it handle cooler climates with ease. These cool night-time temperatures may even be a boon for growers as the chill air often brings out the latent bluish purple colouring during the flowering period. The last two weeks of flowering are especially interesting as the buds quickly become irresistibly thick with resin and trichomes.

Well planned growing schedules can see you net multiple outdoor harvests between May and October, taking advantage of the plant’s more vigorous outdoor growth. This is helped by providing the kind of Mediterranean climate beloved by so many strains, though it will withstand humidity and frigid temperatures easily enough too.

Taste

Berry Bomb Auto marijuana seeds

With one of the strain’s crowning glories being how closely it retained its Berry Bomb ancestor’s flavour, it is no surprise that Berry Bomb Auto exhibits the kind of rich fruity taste that lets you know it is a direct descendent of Blueberry.

This sweetness is accompanied by a deep earthiness that together form the basis of the strain’s smooth smoke. Dig deeper and you will get bits of citrus and vanilla sitting comfortably in the mix.

Bag Appeal

The berry and earth flavours that dominate the taste make a strong reappearance in the scent too, with these notes becoming immediately apparent. Those not overly enamoured with the scent alone will find plenty to love in the appearance of the bud, however, with each thick nug being richly frosted in trichomes.
