  1. I`m Johnny and i`m very nervous about writing in this forum for many reasons, first and foremost because it is the first time i start a thread and a comment on a forum, then because i admire all the nice people in here who make this forum one of the best forums, if not the best, that i came across about growing this wonderful and amazing plant and last but not least that my grow is in a country that is not ok to grow, overall i`m nervous not to fuck it up. This plant in my opinion is a wonder of nature it helped me so many times but it also made me confused alot of times, and that is because as many others, you get what it is offered to you it`s not like you have a choice to go to the store and pick the sort that you need for youre condition or mood, so i decided to experiment in bringing to life my own plant after many years of "drinking" whiskey when i felt for wine and vice versa, i`m taking the chance even if the law is not allowing me to grow a new hobby. So i`m a begginer and as all begginers i made mistakes and i`m sure i will make plenty of those till i will get the desired level of knowledge about how to do it right, soon i will start a journal and share with this close to my heart community my experiences. I decided to start with DWC, i did alot of research about it and i thought it is a challenging method because i wanted to be with the plant every day, to measure , to note the EC, PH etc. to feel that i`m active in this journey, beside that it was the grow space that is a 60x60 tent and i wanted to put my energy in only one plant which will give me around 150 - 200 g but instead i killed a lady, she was Black Domina from Sensi Seeds and i know how i did that, she was in the third week from seed ,it was not the systems fault but it was mine. I used the method of soking the seed, after 18 h she cracked, the i placed her in an pre soaked with 5.5 PH ROOTIT cube after that i placed the cube under a dome, when she came to light after 2 days i placed her in the system with a solution with the EC 5.9 that contained GHFG + AN Pirhanha and PH 5.7, all was good, the temperature in the tent fluctuated a bit but not in the dangerous zone 19 min 27 max, RH 40 ish , DWC temp quite high 19-28 but she did not seem to stop from growing, the temps in the medium got me worried so i decided to search more for the best way available to prevent root rot, the water chiller was a no go for only one bucket, the water bottle seemed dangerous for the roots and the other methods seemed very complicated so i decided to find some additive that could helped me with this problem and im happy to share with all of you that have root rot problems that it was given to me to find the F U root rot additive thought and still think till proven different that is the best thing, at this moment, for this problem, but as SBR is killing all the life that is in the medium i had to change the ANP with something else and i went with AtamiRootbastic . That was the mistake, in my opinion this was what killed her, i switched the roots feeding from organic to mineral, the GHFG works well with ANP, i checked with GHF staff but the transition i think is what burned her alive, anyways, i will tell you and show you guys and gals more about in the future with this new Black Domina lady that is under my light as we speak in a journal that i`m planning to open soon with the hope that some of you will be willing to take part in this learning journey of mine and give me an advice or two when necessay. With this, if you manage to bare with me till the end of my introduction and excuse my english i thank you . Johnny RIP : Franco Loja
  2. Alright, here are the facts: on Tuesday 31 January at 22:00, after a huge Cheese joint, I decided to take a short break from smoking cannabis. How short, I still don't know. For sure I am not going to last too long. Maybe 3-4 days, maybe a week, maybe 2... not longer, I know it already..... I just like it TOO MUCH! And now the explanation: I started smoking cannabis in 1989. Since then, I have smoked cannabis EVERY DAY, except for: - 7 days in March 1998 (I was in the hospital) - 14 days in October 1999 (I was in the hospital for 7 days, and feeling like shit for the next 7) - 7 days in March 2011 (during a bad bronchitis I decided to see if I was able to stop, just to prove myself to myself) So, let's put this down to the math: in the last 22 years I have been smoking weed for approximately 8035 days, and NOT smoking it for 28 days (or 0,3% of the days). I am not far from reaching the 40 years old milestone. I think it's time to prove myself that I smoke cannabis because I like it, and not because it's just the norm in my life. And the best way to do that it's to stop for a little bit every once in a while. I decided to start this blog-entry to share my experience and my feelings with the community. After all, nobody can understand better than my fellow tokers.... And now on with the chronicles: DAY 1 - waking up knowing that the only breakfast will be a cigarette and a glass of orange juice is not really appealing. But I am determined to do this. The day goes on, I am really busy at the office and I manage to get to lunchtime without too much stress. After lunch I really struggle, so I allow myself 2 cigarettes in a row. My colleagues don't know I have stopped weed, and I am not telling anyone for the moment. Avoiding the subject is the best way to not think about it too much. The rest of the afternoon goes by fast, but then comes the hardest part: the evening. I eat a nice dinner, play with my kids, then go out in the garden for a cigarette. I am really, really close to giving up. But I don't. When the kids are in bed I try to distract myself with iPad, TV, iPod, iMac, and Nintendo. It's not enough. I am literally freaking out. My heartbeat is slightly faster than normal, and the palms of my hands are a little sweaty. Who said weed is not addictive? LOL Time to go to sleep. I smoke one more cigarette, then lay in bed wide awake for a couple of hours before I finally pass out. Hard day. Really hard day. But it's normal, it's day 1. DAY 2 - I woke up less stressed than yesterday. It's all in the mind... ;-) Even though it's -7 degrees outside, I decide to take my Ducati because today it's the last dry, sunny day of this week. Tomorrow snow will come. I have an appointment at the Coffeeshop in the Haarlemmerstraat, and I am really scared that I am not going to resist temptation. As soon as I arrive the sweet smell of weed penetrates my nose, and my soul. My appointment rolls 3 joints in 30 minutes, but I don't even blink. After 15 minutes I walk outside and smoke a cigarette. Now everybody start asking me why I am not smoking joints, so I have to let the news go public. LOL After the Coffeeshop I go to the office. There nobody knows yet, and this makes it easier on me. I smoke 2 cigarettes in 20 minutes, then dive into my work: writing articles for the new issue of Canamo Magazine, and helping the designers produce new banners for Powder Feeding. It's now past 15:00 and I am doing a lot better than yesterday. Hopefully tonight will be also a little easier than last night.... Tomorrow I'll let you know. And now let's talk money: who wants to bet on how long I am going to last? Who's gonna be the official "bookie"? Can I bet 10 Euros on myself for a 7-days-clean strike? How are the quotes? LOOOOOOOOOOOOL

  4. OK, so I haven't seen this before, I've always thought it was necessary but didn't realise it was already being done and so incredibly properly. I believe this facility also take deposits from multinational companies with an interest in the preservation of seed stock from around the world. I am sure GHSC and Strain Hunters keep Mums and seeds in controlled storage, but must live in fear of loss, damage, spoiling or government destruction. I seem to remember a story about some of Arjans parent stock being destroyed in Switzerland?? (May be myth). Anyway, check out the video below, I hope this is of interest to Franco and Arjan. http://edition.cnn.com/videos/world/2015/10/22/norway-doomsday-backstory-arwa.cnn
  5. A couple of pics of one of the white lemons i had to cull, 9 weeks done and still a bit white but need meds and still have a few left to go a bit longer. Great taste and flavour and a real hard hitter!!!! 250 watt then 400 for the last 4 weeks flower so not a bad take and these are from seed so no more smoko for now as i had a bad go with the clones and they got massacred lol. Thank you franco for the experience and please give us a go at your next cup. Will sure document.

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.
