  1. What is the significance of a Male x Female cross; for example, what is particularly extraordinary about Neville's Haze x Hawaiian Snow vs Hawaiian Snow x Neville's Haze? I made my first cross and have about 200 seeds which I want to plant all plants to create my F2 seedstock for (?10000 seeds) and then do some selections. The purpose of my question is to fill my head with more knowledge. Happy days, peace, and love, and stay high
  2. Your words are very encouraging to me. These are specially custom engineered cobs. I will be very excited to share this innovation. As far as cobs go, what I learned best is that the more heat you can remove the brighter and more efficient your lights will be. Some special attention and engineering can go into the driver's components but basically more research+development=harder to justify cost unless there is a great plan to compensate the effort without losing focus on just growing and instead get carried away with revolutionizing the drivers industry, lights, and heatsinks all at the same time, lol. As far as the breeding goes I want to do more of a herding than a specific plant hunt. So if I could narrow down 10% of the plants that have all the leanings I like and continue culling every generation this way so I can drop any bean and get close to that high high dance/work-horse focus and energy I like with other nice background qualities. Is this possible ? I don't know
  3. I am thinking the strain can effect everyone different. For me, the real Cheese puts me to sleep even after 8 hours of good night sleep I will drool in my sleep 6 more hours after smoking the Cheese
  4. As for the LED's I am discovering what I thought was a simple project is quite complicated but quite simple once I find the answer and solder it all up. Once I get a few prototypes I will show them off. Removing the heat from LED's is the most difficult issue, at least, for me, since 1 cob alone is 700w requiring custom engineered heatsink.I have 3 prototypes, one is 700w single cob, the other is 3 cobs total <600w, the 3rd is 1400w with 4 cobs. I studied a lot and for some reason nobody is using what I discovered is most important for cellular respiration so in my stubbornness I am producing what I believe will produce the best indoor in the world. That sounds like a commercial but all visions do
  5. Thank you @sliver1 for the information. I don't have to worry about the mom or dad being the sativa for example to later find what I am searching for? What I was worried about is having the sativa dad's effects being dominated by the indica mom in their offspring but it sounds like that is not a concern at all? I crossed a Sativa dominant White Widow male (super vanilla, mint cucumber, haze) with a sativa dominant Mazar-I-Sharif (landrace with an extremely overwhelming and unmistakable old school marihuana smell from meters away (that kind of smell that makes everyone think WEED from their oldest memory of first smelling it) with, after close inspection, background of berry, licorice, mint, sandalwood, lemon, carrot, champagne).. With the Mazar I know it is usually a 100% indica but within it's gene pool are sativas and I got one of them high highs with no ceiling and expansive clarity, focus, and energy. So I was worried about the fact the Mazar is the mom and it's indica genes might dominate the hybrid since I am a big fan of the most sativa dominant White Widows. Some folks might call this the White Rhino strain but mine is not since the Mazar is pure heirloom landrace direct from Afghanistan fields. No hint of skunk in this Mazar at all. Cheers and happy days
  6. I am building a custom grow light with wavelength (nm) specific and temperature (K) specific LED lights. Some cobs are 40w, another 120w, another 700w. 1 cob, for example, is 7800ma (34-36v), another 1200ma(30-32v), another 3400ma(34-36v). How do I wire up multiple drivers to power the light as one unit? For example is it simply all drivers in parallel - powerIn--+Driver--+Driver--+Driver--+Driver--powerOut with each driver running it's given lights in parallel? i.e. --/+Driver--+Light--+Light--/+Driver-- Sorry for the poor analogy I am not an electrician or physicist.
  7. I read this about Kazakhstan
  8. Thailand is also ridden with landmines. Testy strain hunt for certain.
  9. Hi GHS and forum goers. I have followed GHS work since 2011. R.I.P. Franco, see you on the other side brother. My favorite GHS documentary by far was The Congo. I wish this pure stimulant landrace was sold by seed. My favorite sativas are the pure stimulant variety so please look forward to seeing some indoor and outdoor grows of various sativa strains from the Nepalese, Thailand, and African regions. Also I am very interested in experimenting with various LED wavelengths to maximize response from the plant. In a perfect world I have unlimited super-soil, very complex, with different piles all containing separate variety and organic matter content for different terpene production. And a big pond to grow on mud piles like in Jamaica creeks. Happy growing and stay kind
  10. Thank you for the advice Chefblake420. Only GHS have collected this specific landrace so unless WoS is GHS I do not believe they will have this landrace. Africa is a big place though so I suspect there are thousands of landraces for the continent to offer.
  11. Hi, a quick follow-up. Palau even contains a Wikipedia page entitled "Cannabis in Palau" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_in_Palau BBC Article - 'Palau: Is it the world's cannabis capital?' https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-18736585 "Marijuana in Palau: Where It is Illegal But Tolerated" https://www.pacificnote.com/single-post/2017/03/14/Marijuana-in-Palau-Where-It-is-Illegal-But-Tolerated Will follow up more later. Peace
  12. The only Cannabis strains I care for are the pure stimulant variety. Arjan and Franco found such a variety in the Congo and it is a dream of mine to own this strain before hybridization.
  13. I am wishing for visits to Palau, Micronesia, FIJI, Guam, and wherever the hottest trails lead for the best landraces. Evidently Palau is the weed capital island getaway for Chinese and Russian tourists.
  14. My phone does not keep me logged in even after checking stay logged in. Android
  15. Great start for Mexico but unfortunately it is currently such a limited program the legal market provides little help for patients. Colombia is way ahead of Mexico I hear. Either way this is all much better than totally illegal and hopefully a great start for more freedom
  16. There is always room at the top. Lift weight and do something big. Anything!
  17. No way Jose. I kid. Thank you for the kind welcome
  18. I am certainly not discussing riding on a ship or boat across the planet. We do live in the days of aircraft. The islands in question are "Palau - an archipelago of over 500 islands" The Federated States of Micronesia are also worth a trip. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Palau/@5.4348893,130.7997474,977772m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x328445b4a2af0399:0x12ed1edd39a1ebbb!8m2!3d7.51498!4d134.58252
  19. I am still researching for the chain of islands I researched some time ago and mentioned in my last post. The chain is significant because it's known as the most cannabis-friendly islands in the world. Also The Solomon islands seems like another obvious destination with King Solomon and all
  20. I like the idea of an Island Edition Strain Hunters. Pick several regions to island hop. There are more than one million islands on Earth so start in Fiji region and move about. There is one island in this region absolutely covered in pot with what looks to be maybe 500 inhabitants. The landraces in these island regions are of the purest sativa with wispy leaves, airy white pistils, and high stimulant effects. West of Chile also comes to mind as well as west of Mexico and west of Spain and south of India Also there is a chain of islands I will have to look up and post later that is known as the destination for Chinese tourists to smoke pot. I will havr to look it up later. Heaven on Earth and tons of mountainous micro islands chained together

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.
