Mother's Finest Wide


General Information

Type:  Sativa-dominant hybrid

Genetics:  Unknown hybrid containing Jack Herer, Haze, and an unknown Indica supposedly related to Juicy Fruit

Geographic Origin:  Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Seed Company/Clone: Sensi Seeds

Description: Released to high acclaim, Mother’s Finest is a very Hazey and Sativa-dominant strain effect, smell, and taste-wise, but still manages a short flowering time thanks to the addition of a secret unknown Indica with “maple leaf” traits.  The taste and smell seem to model themselves after the Jack Herer and/or Haze in most cases, giving off a spicy and lemony bouquet.

Growing Information

Flowering Time: Depends on phenotype, most are between 60 and 65 days, but some Haze-dominant phenos can stretch out into the 90 day range.  Jack Herer-dominant phenotypes tend to be in the 75 day range.

Preferred Growing Medium: Most phenotypes of this strain get rather tall and show Haze-dominant growth structure yet finish in a reasonable amount of time.  There are some Indica-dominant phenos that work well for SOG, but otherwise this is more of a SCROG type plant that responds reasonably well to training.

Patient Expectations

Scent: Mentholated citrus and pine with a spicy lean, very much like Jack Herer itself.

Flavor: Much like the smell, it’s a citrus-dominant Haze taste with some spicy pine elements and a mentholated, cool quality.

Effects: Very cerebral and spacey, this strain definitely calls upon its Haze lineage with its effects package.  Uplifting and somewhat energetic, it is a powerful strain that doesn’t leave mental processes unscathed — some distraction and spacing out is inevitable with this one.  Lots of face and eye pressure occurs with this strain as well, making it appropriate for those suffering from ocular issues.  Once the cerebral Sativa start died down, it got slightly relaxing and more sedate towards the end, uplifting mood and making for a smooth ride back to a normal state.
