  1. Hey guys I do not use Apple products but if people are still experiencing issues with the visibility of the text editor the problem is not caused by the text editor it is caused by the CSS applied to the theme to format the text editor, the editor does not use flash and JavaScript is not an issue, even mobile browsers don't choke on JScript today. The reason for the problem is the themes CSS to format the text editor, this is clearly demonstrated by the fact that scrolling to the bottom of any page on the site and changing the theme from Strain Hunters (Default) to the default theme for the forum software. So in order to solve the problem the CSS expressions used to format the text editor need adjusting to account for the mobile browser on iOS devices. I&I prefer the Default theme the design is clean and the colour palette is good and it is easy on the eye, the text editor looks how it is designed to look, black text on a white background makes the text easier to read and absorb, equally black text on a white background is what the end user expects to see, this is the usual experience, even in a text editor programme on a computer the interface will be black text white background as default, obviously as you create documents you can change the text and background colours. My advice here from a design perspective is don't reinvent the wheel, interferring with the look of the text editor is unecessary, because the text will be displayed in the page whatever colour is specified in the stylesheet containing the CSS expressions for the page text and background colours. The most salient point here is that unless you have some iOS devices and the time to test your theme to destruction as it were then, don't bother messing with the editor, remember the guys who are responsible for creating the editor have already done the heavy lifting and invested time and effort testing the editor to make sure it works as expected on all types of devices and operating systems people use today as well as legacy stuff on older devices. Not everybody is running the latest device or software, so we have to temper what we do and the things we produce bearing this fact in mind, we have to balance things to make sure we have an even playing field for all users, or it is as even as it can be considering the vast number of variables involved from different devices, OS's, browsers and even network connections, all these things determine the end users experience. Being consistenet is very important so making sure that if end users can change themes the experience is consistent, as I mentioned I use the Default theme and the chat tool bar ting is not available, for me this is not a problem I find it distracting and slightly annoying keep popping and pinging as it alerts me to something trying to tempt me to look and distract me from whatever I was reading or writing at that time, and yes I know I can just click on it and close it so it goes away. But by making sure everything works under all available themes this ensures that the end user has a consitent experience. With regards to CSS if you find you need to use !important in a style rule expression, you have an issue with specifity, this means basically that you are not being specific enough to identfy the element you are trying to apply the formatting to, even if for example you have applied an ID attribute to the element in question, where normally this works for you. The problem is there is/are other elements with ID attributes applied to them along with other elements with CSS classes applied to them which are parent containers to the element you are wanting to format or effect in some manner using CSS style rules. So to avoid using !important to force the style rule expression you need to be specific, this element is located deep within other elements within the DOM, so you have to help the browser to drill down the DOM (Document Object Model) to the element in question, so instead of using the ID or class attribute for the element in question, you need to list the ID's and classes of all the elements in the document that contain that element. If you work with JavaScript think of it the exact same way you would if you were writing some logic to manipulate an element within the DOM, it is the same thing your just using a different technology to interfer with the same thing. So if the element is located within 3 other elements you need to specify their ID's and or classes so instead of writing a style rule like the following #myElement { color: red; } You would write .elementOne #elementTwo .elementThree #myElement ( color: red; } In the rule above we identify the hierarchy of containing elements in order, drilling down to the element we wish to apply the style rule to in order to affect it some how, in this case make any text red, due to the fact the element is deeply nexted within 3 other elements using it's ID myElement alone may not be enough to help the browser identify the element within the DOM and do your bidding. When I am writing JScript or jQuery I always visualise myself looking down the DOM from the perspective of the window object, remember you cannot get higher than the window because the browser window is the ultimate container, your document or web page is rendered within the browser window by the browser, it is a hierarchy of nodes in a document tree, so applying this thinking makes working with CSS easier the same rules apply. Hope this helps. Gasmeter Likkle more
  2. Man you gotta luv the images of the germinted seeds they are absolutely awsome That is some brilliant photography, great job Jose
  3. 23 October 2017 The Kings Kush bud has now dried and I have removed the bud from the stalks and then I placed the bud into a Kilner jar. On the day I harvested the Kings Kush I did not water her, because I had only given her water for the previous 2 weeks. I was watering and feeding every 4 to 5 days, when I harvested her it was 5 days after I last watered, and as I mentioned in my last post I decided to trim off the sugar leaves and trim up the bud when I harvested, rather than wait until it was dry. I think it is worth the effort to trim at harvest, this is a messy process whenever you do it, after the herb is dry or before, your still going to get resin on your hands which aint a bad thing, but I think having less leaf material on the bud definitely helps it to dry out quicker and more evenly. The yield this time was less than the first run at 3oz of bud, 1oz of trim, sugar leaves and beeny buds from lower stalks, plus 3oz of stalks which I will use to make some Canna butter and use that to make some brownies. All the dried Kings Kush bud in a heap. All the Kings Kush bud in a Kilner jar. Kings Kush trim. All of the Kings Kush stalks. The smell of the Kings Kush bud is a rich earthy, herby aroma and the taste when smoked is the same, and when I harvested her there were plenty of amber trichomes all over the buds, it is fast hitting with a good high and body stone that is very strong, and a bit couch locky, I love it. The 3rd Kings Kush bean popped and I then planted it in a teeny pot but it never broke ground, so I ordered 3 Jack Herer auto beans from the guys at Haze.io and I have popped one of the seeds and it is now a few nodes tall so I will have to start a new journal. Thanks for all your input and advice during this grow, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  4. This is my second indoor run of Kings Kush autoflower. Tent Mars Hydro 70cm X 70cm X 160cm Grow Light Mars II 400 LED The grow light is the equivalent to a 250W HPS Strain 1 X Kings Kush Autoflower = Green House Seeds Growing Medium BioBizz All Mix Perlite Plant Feed Canna Start = seedling Plant Magic Soil Grow = veg Plant Magic Root Stimulant = veg & flowering Plant Magic Soil Bloom = flowering On Friday the 28th of April I started to germinated the second of the 3 Kings Kush beans and placed it on some kitchen roll in a shallow dish and sprayed it with water to make the kitchen roll damp then I placed it into a drawer, I kept the kitchen roll damp and on Sunday the 30th of April the bean had split and there was a tap root. So on Monday the 1st of May I filled a 3 inch plant pot with soil for seedlings that contains no nutrients and planted the newly germinated seed about 5mm below the surface of the soil then sprayed the soil with water to make it damp, then I placed the pot on a little saucer and placed them in the corner of the grow tent with the Kings Kush from my last indoor grow. Baby Kush 03 May 1 week old. Kings Kush 12 May 2 weeks old. These are a couple of photos I took today. Kings Kush side view normal light. Once she had grown a couple of sets of leaves a week ago (12th May) I mixed up a 2 litres of Canna Start and started to feed her 10ml of Canna Start and water just before the light goes out in the evening and during the day I still give her 10 good squirts of water 4 times per day to keep the soil damp and she is doing great. Kings Kush foliage close up normal light. I will update the journal next week with a progress report, the 2 Passion #1 beans I popped have broken ground and they are both thriving. Happy growing guys Gasmeter Likkle more
  5. 18 October 2017 It is now the middle of week 24 and the Kings Kush auto is ready for harvest today. Here are some images I took this afternoon when I harvested her. Kings Kush side view under normal light. Kings Kush top view under normal light. Kings Kush lower bud normal light. Kings Kush top colas normal light. Kings Kush top bud close up normal light. Kings Kush harvested hanging on clothes rack to dry. Kings Kush trim all the sugary fan leaves, lower stalks and beeny bud. The yield this time is not as good as the first run, there is definitely less bud on the stalks. This time I have trimmed the sugar leaves from the bud, rather than trimming them off when the bud has dried. More updates to follow soon, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  6. 14 October 2017 End of week 23 and the Kings Kush auto is getting close to harvest now the number of amber trichomes is oncreasing all over the plant from the lower branches to the top of the plant they are pretty consistent now, so she is only getting water, and she is consuming nutrients from fan leaves which are going yellow. Here are some images I took this afternoon. Kings Kush in the grow tent under the LED. Kings Kush side view under normal light. Kings Kush top view under normal light. Kings Kush top of plant normal light. Kings Kush lower cola normal light. Kings Kush top cola normal light. Kings Kush bud close up normal light. On the 10th of October I started to germinate the last of the 3 Kings Kush seeds and on the 12th of October I planted the seed. Most of the pistles are now brown and there are now loads of amber trichomes all over the bud everywhere on the plant so I will harvest in the next few days. More updates to follow soon, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  7. 08 October 2017 End of week 22 and the Kings Kush auto continues to quietly build bud. Here are some images I took this afternoon. Kings Kush in the grow tent under the LED. Kings Kush bud close up under the LED. Kings Kush side view under normal light. Kings Kush top view under normal light. Kings Kush bud on stalk normal light. Kings Kush bud close up normal light. Those pistles are getting brown now and the number of amber trichomes are increasing nicely, so she only gets water now no more feeding. More updates to follow soon, happy growing guys.

  8. 01 October 2017 End of week 21 and the Kings Kush auto has grown some more fan leaves and filled out as she continues to build bud. More of the pistles on the bud are slowly turning brown and I can also see some amber trichomes all over the plant as well. Here are some images I took today.

  9. Whoops its been a while since I last updated my journal, thanks for the info about nutrients Cannabissapean yes the Kings Kush is a leaf monster. Thanks for the kind words slimjim she is an auto flower I have just kept her in veg to allow her to reach a decent size before I flipped the lights to 12/12 to ensure she started to flower. Time to bring this journal up to date. 22 September 2017 End of week 20 and the Kings Kush auto continues to grow and build bud. A couple of days ago I stripped off a shit load of fan leaves to open her up and let more light penetrate the plant. Here are some images I took today. Kings Kush side view normal light. Kings Kush top veiw normal light. Kings Kush bud on stalk normal light. Kings Kush bud close up normal light. More updates to follow, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  10. Hey guys sorry for the delay updating my journal and thanks for the kind words. I bought four new 1 1/2 litre Kilner jars while the Passion #1 was drying then a week after harvest on the 1st of October I trimmed the dry sugar leaves from the bud and put the bud into the Kilner jars. So I ended up with 8oz bud and 3oz of trim, plus a shit load of fan leaves and stalks, I put the fan leaves in a cardboard box as I stripped them off both plants during harvest, and I left them in the shed to dry slowly, and I have used half of them to make some canna butter, which I use it to make a couple of batches of brownies that give a mild vibe, which is nice in the morning. Unfortunately the stalks got moldy so I binned them, otherwise I would have used them to make canna butter too. The bud has a piney odour which is quite strong, it is a nice smoke fast hitting with a good high and strong body hit that is borderline couch lock, just how I like it, I waited until there were heaps of amber trichomes before I harvested them both. Gimmi de ting Doctor order me... Here are some images I took when I trimmed the bud and put it into jars. All the Passion #1 bud trimmed up bud in a heap on a bin liner. All of the Pasion #1 buds and a lighter to give an idea of the size of the buds. All of the Passion #1 buds in Kilner jars. All of the Passion #1 trim in an old ice cream container. All of the Passion #1 trim in a Kilner jar. A nice big bud for a test smoke. This season growing outdoor has definitely been the best so far out of the past 3 outdoor seasons, I just love the Passion #1 strain it performs well in the UK climate, I am really looking forwards to the 2018 season next year, hopefully I can improve on this years grow and get a better yeild. Happy growing guys. Gasmeter
  11. Getting the ball well and truly rolling for the 2017 outdoor season. Strain 2 X Passion #1 = Dutch Passion Growing Medium BioBizz All Mix Perlite Plant Feed Canna Start = seedling Plant Magic Soil Grow = veg Plant Magic Root Stimulant = veg & flowering Plant Magic Soil Bloom = flowering I ordered 3 Passion #1 beans and they arrived on Wednesday 10th May so I immediately placed 2 of them onto some damp kitchen roll on a saucer and placed them in a drawer to germinate. Both beans has split and tap roots were visible by Thursday evening, so on Friday afternoon I planted them in 3 inch pots in some soil for seedlings that contains no nutrients and I am keeping the soil damp giving them ten squirts of water 4 times per day and they are both thriving. Here are a couple of photos I took this afternoon. Passion #1 seedlings in normal light. Passion #1 leaves normal light. At the moment I have got both the Passion #1 girls in my little grow tent under a Mars II 400 LED vegging along with a Kings Kush auto. When they get a couple more leaves I will start to give them some Canna Start to help them along the Kings Kush is definitely liking it. Happy growing guys Gasmeter Likkle more
  12. Hey guys time for an update, it is now the end of week 19 and yesterday it was cloudy and sunny in the morning but the weather forcast was for showers at lunch time, so about 11.00am I took some photos of the plants and then I gave them both 9 litres of water each and checked the PH of the run off which was 6. Within minutes of watering the plants it started raining so I quickly moved them into the shed under the flourescent lights with the large fan running to move air around, due to the fact the rain was light showers I was able to leave the shed door open to help keep the humidity down and I left the fan running over night as well. Here are some images I took yesterday. Both of the Passion #1 gals outside in back yard Close up of the top of the stalky plant. Top of the leafy plant. The plants are now ready to harvest I can see plenty of amber trichomes so after lunch today they go the chop and I harvested both plants. Both Passion #1 plants harvested bud hanging on stalks drying. Passion #1 charas. I have had a little smoke of the charas in a single skinner with some fan leaves (I&I quit smokin shag) and it has a nice vibe, a good strong body feeling, but the high is an elevation of conciousness, with charas the hit is like a silk thread that slowly and gently vanishes away, its the cream of the crop. So there was 650g of fan leaves, stalky produced 750g of bud and leafy produced 600g of bud, but remember these weights are wet and the bud is still on the stalks at the moment while the bud is drying, in 7 days I will strip the bud off the stalks and trim as required and then I will put it in Kilner jars, I only have one at the moment so I need to go and buy and few more. In total bud and stalk for both plants is 1350g or about 26 ounces, so I should end up with just under a pound of herb once dried I am well chuffed. Updates to follow happy growing guys.

  13. Hi Slimjim thanks for the kind words man Yeah the bud rot was a shame, but it hasn't been a show stopper and I have definitely learned from it. I agree removing fan leaves would have helped with air flow, I will definitely do this next season if the other two beans turn out to be leaf monsters. I could also tie the stalks down to pull them away from the main stalk, or pull the top of the main stalk over so the nodes then spread and grow upwards like mini colas. I will definitely take your advice Cannabissapean and strip some of the fan leaves on the Kings Kush to let in more light. Gasmeter Likkle more
  14. So it is the end of week 18 and since I found a couple of buds with bud rot a few days ago I have been keeping a close eye on the top of the leafy plant and I found a couple more buds had also been affected so I snipped them off and I removed the bud from the nodes directly below that I was not sure about just to be sure. I have been quick drying the bud on the radiator as I did before and it has a decent vibe they are close to harvest now. So last night I gave them both 9 litres of water, the weather today has been mostly sunny with a bit of cloud and tomorrow will be the same. Here are some image I took yesterday of the top of the stalky plant. Top of stalky plant. Close up of bud on top of stalky plant. The weather over the next few days is forcast to be cloudy and sunny so I will keep and eye on them and see how things go harvest time is close now. Happy growing guys. Gasmeter
  15. 14 September 2017 We have had a few very wet days since my last update and I have had to keep both plants in the shed under the flourescent lights. Today while it was sunny I took some photos of the plants and as I checked them over I found some bud rot on the leafy plant right at the top of the plant. So I removed the affected buds and saved the bud above it which was not affected and cleared as much debris from the site as I could. Site at top of leafy plant after removing affected bud. Salvaged bud from above and below affected bud site. Although bud rot is shit, with every negative there is a positive, this does provide the chance to test the bud. I quick dried the bud on the radiator and it is OK the vibe is nice when I look at photos of the bud I can see that the trichomes are mainly very milky with a few starting to go amber so it provides a nice high with a good body hit. Happy growing guys. Gasmeter
  16. Time for an update to catch up again. 10 September 2017 End of week 18 and both of the Passion #1 plants are still doing great and the bud is quietly ripening. The weather has been a mixture of sunshine and showers in the morning then clearing up by lunch time. Here are some images I took today. Passion #1 plants outside in the shed. Passion #1 stalky plant top of plant. Passion #1 stalky plant top bud close up. Passion #1 leafy plant top of plant. Passion #1 leafy plant top bud close up. Happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more

  18. End of week 19 and the Kings Kush auto is doing great and she is continuing to build those buds. She is still on a 12/12 photoperiod and tonight I gave her just 4 litres of water it has been 7 days since I last fed and watered her. A few days ago I adjusted the pipe cleaners I have used to tie down her stalks to make sure the tops of the stalks are 12 inches below the LED. Here are some images I took yesterday Kings Kush in grow tent with LED off. Kings Kush side view normal light. Kings Kush top view normal light. Kings Kush stalk and bud normal light. Kings Kush bud close up normal light. Oh yeah I smoked the last of the bud from the first run of Kings Kush last week it was sweet. Updates to follow soon. Gasmeter Likkle more
  19. Time for a quick update. 10 September 2017 End of week 18 and the Kings Kush auto is growing nicely and building lots of bud. Here are a few images I took today.

  20. Hi Cannabissapen, yes Trounce is a natural organic pesticide the information states it can be used even the day before harvest safely. You can find info about Trounce here on their web site http://www.growthtechnology.com/product/trounce/ It cost dear at £25 for 500ml or half a litre, but you create a solution with 50ml per litre so it goes a long way. I have been keeping on top of keeping the back yard clean and tidy especially where my plants are, our neighbour has a holly bush and a lorel tree that are constantly sheding leaves so I keep my eye on this and clean them up so that ants can use the leaf litter to farm those beeny flies that make a sugary sap the ants love to eat. There is a hole at the bottom of the wall behind the shed which the ants have used and one near the front corner of the shed between paving slabs and I have poured water down the holes and none organic pesticides down them in the past, but they always came back, I sprays some Trounce into each hole 2 weeks ago and no ants since. I think keeping the garden clean is the main thing I have only had to spray the plants two or three times because I spotted a few flies and the caterpillars the other day, the plants are only a couple of weeks off harvest now so hopefully I won't any more pest problems. Gasmeter Likkle more
  21. The bud at the tops of both plants is pretty dense so when they are in the shed I have a large fan moving the air around in there. And I am making sure they don't get rained on too, I really don't want them to get bud rot at this point in the proceedings. I found two caterpillars on the compact leafy plant the other day so squashed them and then I sprayed them both with Trounce bug spray and really misted all of the bud to kill any bugs trying to set up home on me collie. I think the stalky plant will be ready to harvest first then the compact leafy plant, it is a lot easier to keep an eye on the stalky plant than the leafy one when looking at the foliage checking for bugs thats for sure. Gasmeter Likkle more
  22. 02 September 2017 End of week 17 and both of the Passion #1 plants are still building lots of bud. Here are some images I took today. Passion #1 plants outside in the back yard. Passion #1 stalky plant. Passion #1 stalky plant top cola. Passion #1 stalky plant top cola close up. Passion #1 compact plant. Passion #1 compact plant top cola. Passion #1 compact plant top cola close up. The aroma from the bud on the stalky plant is definitely strong when you sniff the bud it is almost cheesey and quite overpowering, but if you touch the bud and then sniff your fingers you can appreciate the depth of the aroma and it is not as pungent, yet the aroma on the compact plant is not as strong, but it does seem to be getting stronger and I am well happy with both plants so far. More updates to follow, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  23. 26 August 2017 End of week 16 and both of the Passion #1 plants are growing well and building lots of bud. On the whole the weather has not been too bad and we have been getting more sun than rain, usually a day or two of sunshine then a day with showers or heavy rain all day, on these days I keep both plants in the shed under the flourescent lights with a large fan moving the air around. Here are some images I took today. Passion #1 plants outside in the back yard. Passion #1 stalky plant. Passion #1 stalky plant top cola. Passion #1 compact plant. Passion #1 compact plant top cola.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
