MOTHER’S FINEST STRAIN INFORMATION

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.

History

Story:

Awards: 1st Place 2002 High Times Cannabis Cup – Sativa Category

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.

NORTHERN ICE STRAIN INFORMATION

General Information

Type:  Indica-dominant hybrid

GeneticsNorthern Lights #5 x Ice

Geographic Origin:  Both parent strains bred in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Seed Company/Clone: Unknown

Description: A strongly Indica hybrid of two classic Amsterdam commercial hybrids, this strain was actually bred in Denver, Colorado.  Short-flowering and stocky, it will generally form a strong main cola if left untopped.  Both parent strains are known for being easy to grow and mold/pest-resistant, so this is a good beginner strain.

Growing Information

Flowering Time: Would assume 50-55 days based on lineage

Preferred Growing Medium:

Patient Expectations

Scent: Floral, spicy, and lightly skunky

Flavor: Hints of grapefruit — piney citrus with a spicy bent and an earthy aftertaste

Effects: A fairly strong starter, this strain is rather relaxing physically but also has quite a strong Skunk-influenced head effect.  It’s not too potent to inhibit function, but it’s definitely a nighttime type of strain due to its relaxing comedown, which leads easily into sleep.  It aids with muscle relaxation, gives a mood uplift, helps with minor pain, and increases appetite, making it a solid choice for patients who desire a relaxing Indica.

NOGGIN STRAIN INFORMATION

General Information

Type:  Hybrid

Genetics:  Blueberry x Northern Lights #5 x Trainwreck x BOGBubble

Geographic Origin:  Colorado, USA

Seed Company/Clone: Clone only

Description: A veritable melting pot of genetic lines, this hybrid is as unpredictable as its lineage would indicate.  When finished, it produces dense spear-shaped nugs that glimmer with trichomes and bright orange pistils.

Patient Expectations

Scent: Giving off a not particularly noticeable piney scent in the container, it turns into a lovely lemony-fertilizer burst of freshness when broken into.

Flavor: Some lightly sweet lemon blends with oddly spicy juniper

Effects: The effects of this strain are hard to pin down despite it being rather potent.  It starts out with a racy set of Sativa effects that brings to mind the Trainwreck part of its lineage — a racing heart, some perspiration, and lots of facial ad ocular pressure cycling.  Once that introductory state passed, it was a uniquely visual and cerebral experience, lending itself to solitary creative situations more than social ones.  To finish it often comes with a fairly heavy crash, leaving the user lethargic, heavy-eyed, and ready for bed.
