  1. the Cannatonic myth

    You said it Franco! That's the type of reasearch I'm eagerly waiting to see results of. I have many friends that don't like the popular strains of today, like the hazes, and would rather prefer traditional Moroccan hash or just some rough bush weed. I think that has something to do with our tradition lately of usually looking for high thc only instead of looking at the whole spectra of cannabinoids. Actullay that's why I'm looking forward for your new landrace seed company. I believe some cool cannabinoid profiles could step out of it. Is there anything of value written on the synergy of cannabinoids? I'd be happy to dig deeper.
  2. I've been convinced about the technology since a while back but just as the guy said in the article, only the price holds me back. Even if you'd cut down your electricity bill in the end the price you paid for the gear adds up to a regular bill! Pretty much + - 0 in the end, except for the yield perhaps...
  3. HIGH TIMES CANNABIS CUP 2011 - THE LIVE THREAD

    Franco, I am impressed by your energy! You've trully crushed the myth of the lazy stoner =) Up at 7 AM after such a party! Personally I'm having my own "cup" with my own strain created from a cross between a GH white widow female and a LR purple jems male! I call it "purple widow" even though I think thats already taken. But anyway... The buds came out with a nice purple hue and the high is just crazy (for me at least), maybe because I always try to grow my crop with a concious mind. Say "bismillah" when you plant the seed (Zaza will explain if u dont get it)! maybe I'll post some pics but my cam is "kharbaan" and can't zoom properly! So you have to take my word. I'm not into partying myself, although I love the plant, but for other reasons probably closer to the rastas attitude towards it than the western, yet I'm no rasta! If you guys would take the liqour away I might have showed up! Mary Jane suffices! In my opinion the cannabis culture is being blurred up and transformed into a very unstable and untasty hybrid when mixed with alcohol! Looking forward for those landraces... great initiative!
  4. Auto Flowering Questions

    thumbs up tokage! make it a separate thread!
  5. Auto Flowering Questions

    I'm sure there is someone at this forum who can reach out to the arrangers of the HT cup about adding a new category to it. It would become a lot more interesting I believe, something new to get excited about. Actually it surprises me if they already haven't discussed this. Autos have been around for quite some time now.
  6. Auto Flowering Questions

    If we wish to overgrow I'd say autos are the best card to play. Anyone can manage an automatic plant, and they can flourish in nearly any climate. I'm far north (64 degrees) and my mi5 that I planted out in the woods is doing alright so far. Expect to harvest early september =) ... maybe some pics will come up in the future... You're right about that knucklehead! Cloning is easier but then you need a separate veg room which is hard for some of us. Through a controlled pollination I manage to get enough seeds for future crops and some good sinsemilla at the same time. But you have to be careful though, if you use too much pollen or turn the fan on it could turn your whole garden into a whore house! Why not upgrade the HT cup and add another category to it? I believe its time for ruderalis to get some recognition now! It would also offer oppurtunities for smaller seed companies who specialize in autos to prove their capabilities. For the average layman autos is probably the only suitable crop. Therefore I believe we'll soon see a boom in homegrowing thanks to the so long rejected ruderalis. Viva la ditch weed!
  7. Auto Flowering Questions

    What you'd like to have with autos is a breeding room instead of a veg room where you continuously produce seeds from selcted males and females. Although ruderalis isn't known for their good yields and potency remember that once upon time the same was said about sativas. I believe a lot is possible through selective breeding. The later generations of autos have been improved a lot. Right now I'm growing MI5 and i must say it surprised me. Sure, its not as stable as you'd wish but you still find some really nice frosty and fruity phenos. The yield is amazing aswell. There's a nice grow journal of mi5 over at icmag, just google mi5 grow. I'd guess the guerilla grower has the most to earn from autos, but even for the small scale indoor gardener they have a lot to offer.
  8. Banksy's Antics roadshow,

    not about him, but it is said to have been done by him. Anyway its hilarious, just watch
  9. Banksy's Antics roadshow,

    somehow the video doesnt show?
  10. Banksy's Antics roadshow,

    An hour-long special made by Banksy charting the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics. http://www.vimeo.com/27695045
  11. Ruderalis - Siberia ?

    Interesting idea. I guess that would become a documentary more about cannabis as a wild plant in nature, something I'm very interested about, instead of fields grown by humans.
  12. How did I miss this? Thanks for the link, I'll dig into when I get time...
  13. Himalaya Gold, outdoors

    Looking good I guess you don't top the plants? These will get tall, very tall...! Any smell from it so far?
  14. Kentucky!

    I associate Kentucky with tobacco and country music somehow! For how long have people been growing pot there? I remember Kentucky being mentioned in the "hemp for victory"-movie as a major producer. That was industrial hemp though, however if the plant survived in the wild there might be some interesting indigenious landraces around
  15. STRAIN HUNTERS 3: IN THE WORKS

    I think its good as a rule to add 1-2 months to whatever date they first give. Same thing happened with the India expd. There are always unforeseen events down the road. And with a controversial documentary such as this one, you could expect a lot of such events! If this extra time means better quality of the end product I'm only happy, so let the hairs become a little bit redder...

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.
