  1. Well, hasn't it been a while? During the last 4-5 months i've been living a constant hell, between anger and suicidal thoughts. Our political and economical situation (Italy) hasn't been the greatest, and my personal situation was just pure shit, 100% DOP. Without the possibility to grow marijuana for research and, well, fun purposes - legally speaking - i had my head wrapped in a constant anxiety status and migraines, other than the feel i've been useless for my whole life (which isn't that long, but hey, we all gotta start somewhere). Been talking to a friend about this, and while he didn't understand possibly 90% of my situation, he did propose me a good trip to Nepal. Of course, you can't rely on promises in our "western" world, so i've passed 3 months planning and replanning trips as he kept changing our destination. At one point, i had enough. I had to leave, i had to run from my town. At least for a while. Enough time to clean my mind and body of all the shit i've been living these days. I took my decision. Departed on 19th Feb, Destination Kathmandu, more precisely Phutung Village, in Nepal. Possibly one of the poorest countries worldwide. Volunteering in an orphan home. Reconnecting with humanity, and of course nature at its purest state. Arrived on the 20th, afraid as fuck, i find my contacts waiting me out of the airport. We take the taxi, and the driver, Surya, explains me in a very poor english what the situation in Nepal is. The people, the economics, everything that i "should" know about Nepal or, at least, of where i'm headed. Needless to say, i got even more scared, with my initial thoughts passing between "Oh that's beautiful" to "Holy shit where the fuck have i landed". We arrive at our "home", which is a flat of approximately 15sq mts, shared toilet and no kitchen. Yes, i've been shitting in squat toilets for nearly 3 weeks, now. God help me. The first thing you notice about Kathmandu is the extreme pollution going on in the city. Dust and Air pollution make the people live in a constant grey fog, wearing masks even in their own home. The second thing you notice is that there is no garbage collection. Anywhere. The whole place is an open dump, and i still haven't understood if this is because there is no time to think about it (after the 2015's earthquake, the city is in a constant renewal situation), or if it has its roots in their culture. Anyway, no matter where you are (city, village, nature), you throw away your trash at the side of the streets. Huge pity, as the view is astonishing, and people grow food in this situation (with trash in grown fields). The third thing, which is possibly the best about Nepal, is that people here are kind, generous, friendly to anyone, local or foreigner. There is no concept of violence among each other, to Nepali people we're all brothers from different mothers. There is also no concept of "tomorrow". People live their lifes as if it was their last day on earth. Which is possibly what changed me, in these 3 weeks, to an atomic level. Nepali weed is, unfortunately, horrible. Most "grow operations" are conducted on the side of streets, and without care of male/female separation. Taste is good, but to roll one joint, it may take you up to 10 minutes, as removing all the seeds is a hellish pain. 99% of the weed you find here is Sativa dominant, but because of its non-separation of males and females, the high is very similar to an old, abandoned, moroccan hashish (slow and chilly, no buzz whatsoever). Ganja costs 1000 rupies per 60 grams (around 9 euros for the current change). I wonder why. The best ganja i've smoked in these 3 weeks is something that resembles a Mango Haze. To make a comparison, to get the same high you get with European weed, you'd need to smoke around 4 full joints of this. Apart from this, i've lived possibly the greatest festival ever celebrated in Nepal: Shivaratri. And this year, out of any luck, it was the greatest in 80 years. Shivaratri consist, of course, in celebrating Shiva, and it means that all Nepal can smoke weed, hashish, and drink weed-milk tea for the whole day. In Pashupatinat's temple, you'll see the nucleus of the festival, with monks dancing naked and high on hashish (Yes, Naked. Dicks flip-flopping allover the place), tourists and locals getting high and dancing and singing, and every possibile food you can imagine (local only, though). There was also a fireplace which smelled like burned pig, and i later found out they burn dead people in that fire. My friend took some photos of that, with one photo clearly showing someone's leg on fire. During the last 5 days, i got Traveler's diarrhea (fun times), and i seriously thought i was in danger as i spent more time on the toilet than sleeping. Luckily, my body adapted and i'm now back to jumping and screaming. Lastly, my 11 brothers here are crazy kids, ranging from 5 to 12 year old. Their only toys are 2 spinning tops and a Nintendo 64, other than a ball that resembles more a Rugby ball than a football one. What kills me about them, other than the conditions they live in (and love to live in), is their school system: completely fucked up. A 5 year old kid will get the same program as a 15 year old boy, meaning he'll be forced to solve physics equations, while the 15 year old guy may be asked to solve 3+7 for his exams. Now, i'm sitting on my wooden bed, writing you this message with a wifi that relys on the super-unreliable electricity, coming and going every 15-20 minutes. As soon as i'll have time, or possibly when i'll be back, i'll post some pictures. Until then, stay safe, smoke and enjoy your life. You truly got one, don't waste it on thinking about other's opinions. You are the god of your own life. Peace!! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ok, now it's really been a while. Woken up by a 4.1 Mag Quake, today is the first day Internet came back up. As soon as i got this chance, i thought of updating the thread. I got some news. It's been a week of "Hunting", or how the locals call the "Let's go search for some weed". I got my package of bad luck, but in the end, through persistance, i got my prize. I managed to get contacts with a grower, 42km north of my position, which is currently Phutung Village. Got there and bought some weed. 1500 rupies (14 euros) for almost 50 grams of True Nepalese Himalayan Weed. I also managed to get some data out of it: they grow it from July to April, and while the climate during winter is pretty harsh (i've been living, in february, +25° day +6° night), the plants adapted and survive the cold periods. They dry the product for 2 weeks, and then they store it in pots, instead of jars. Unfortunately, they don't separate males from females, but so far it's a decent price to pay for some really good weed. The weed i have bought is 1 year old from harvest, and the colours have long vanished (i guess from exposure to different temperatures, and overall a poor curing condition), but not the high.. Which is long lasting, and changes from an active high (the first 30-40 minutes) to a very chilly and stoney high (the next 2 hours). In 2 grams of weed, you can find around 5 good, developed seeds, and 10-15 bad, burned, or undeveloped seeds. From the look of it, it's a 100% sativa strain, with very hairy flowers, but not as compact as an indica would be. Maybe there has been some crossing with other genetics, but so far all the weed i managed to get around here is (and feels like) a sativa. Again, i still can't upload pictures, as i lack the correct equipment to (and internet connection is really, really unstable). As soon as i'll get back, i'll post some pics. Meanwhile, the earthquake hasn't provoked any damage in my area, as it happened around 60km south from me, but the shake lasted around 4 seconds, and it made my ass jump (while sitting on the floor). Bouncy. Here things proceed as usual. I managed to find an italian furnace, making Pizza! My stomach is safe. Catch you in some time. Stay safe you all. Peace! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Managed to get some images. The view from the upper hill. Drained river, and Kathmandu slowly eating the valley. Sorry for the tilt. Wonder why the electricity's coming and going faster than the galaxy moving through space.. 8months old Himalayan Gold. Great smoke so far. Peace! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 31st March. 1.5 months in. Kids are finishing their school exams during the course of the weekend. After that, they'll have a period of holidays, lasting 2 weeks. Then back to school. After Holi festival (Colour festival, coincidentaly with the start of spring), celebrated on 20th March, life in the Phutung neighborhood has been fairly quiet -apart from a couple thunderstorms that looked like Ragnarok- so i had the time to go hunting a bit more. Yes, i know, i'm surrounded by weed. Literally. During the last hunting sessions i gathered up different types of Ganja (Nepali way to call it), and if you have a good eye, you can see it's growing on the side of streets, in countrysides, on hills, in the cement... everywhere. But this didn't stop me from going further. I want quality. I like quality. Smoking without quality is just hurting yourself more. So... i found quality. Yesterday, after a happy trip of 8 hours in the mountains west of Kathmandu, between two districts (Kathmandu-Chhatre Deurali) at the happy speed of 7-13km/h -due to the streets NOT being streets, but a complex snake of holes and bumps and rocks- I finally got some hash. Oh boy, this is amazing. Now, I am fighting fever, common cold, plates since Friday, and although i can't really feel any taste of anything (including the spicy food, which is literally any food), I DO can smell the hashish. The smell is very pungent, like one you get from a very good and developed sativa. It has hints of lemon and mint, or at least something really strong and like that, maybe lavander. The high is what confirms me its origin is from a Sativa: you don't get stoned, you get active. It lasts around 3 hours per small joint, say the size of a rolled cigarette, and you feel muscular relaxation plus a good buzz in your head. When you smoke it, it doesn't scratch your throat at all. The only true CON to it is that since it's pollen hash, your joint will be always lit. Smoke fast, or you'll waste a third of the joint! On the way back home, i noticed some little Ganja plants. The climate in Nepal is widely different along its borders. In my zone, plants reach heights of about 50cm if exposed to good light. In the plains, 20 days ago, they were already 150cm tall. It's very possible i witnessed different strains, as they might grow them in different zones indeed to “harvest” the best conditions possible for that strain.. But it seems also improbable, since the vast majority of the plants i see around here ain't tall at all, but some are starting to flower -Yes, at 31st March- while the plants in the plains were already showing hairs on 26th February. I am not allowed to take pictures of the ones near my home (I'll try), but for now i can show you the plants that grow around the hills. Clearly Sativa dominant. In 10 days, i'll have an italian volunteer, which also happens to be my best friend, come over here in Nepal and help me with the kids. Finally some company! I've been so busy talking in english and nepali that i forgot what Italian actually is (a mess). He smokes like hell, so i'll have somebody coming hunting with me.. or different zones. Maybe he can get seeds as well. Alright, time to head out for me. I'll catch you all in the next update. Peace!! P.S. The Strainhunters website tilts my images. I tried tilting them myself to adjust to the website, but the website just tilts them the opposite side. You troll! Sorry for the tilt. Double P.S. Apart from the motorcycle, we had to proceed for half an hour deep in the jungle, to avoid police blocks. This is the view from a little track they recon and follow. If you get lost... You're FUCKED! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NEPAL TRIP – 2 Months In (Updated) Sorry everyone for my absence. The ISP company that handled our connection, ITEL, has failed on 15th April, just one day after Nepal's new year, 2076. Nepali Police is refunding every ITEL Customer that had connection issues (everyone, included us), up to a year of subscription. A year of subscription costs around 305 euros. I don't know how many people paid for it.. but i guess a lot. Kathmandu counts around 9.000.000 individuals. Anyway, apart from internet – health issues (spent last week under a nice 39° fever), i encountered a lot of issues regarding “hunting”, as well. The dealer that “managed” nice hashish and marijuana, is now increasing his knowledge in jail. This destabilized a bit the hunting sessions: all the way west of Kathmandu is in “block alert”. Hunting is restricted to other zones, of course, but this means more control by the police, until the “west coast” gets free again. So, i went hunting 3 times from that, and in neither of those times -consider around 8 hours a day of session, on a motorcycle, on roads that rarely show asphalt- i found anything decent. Luckily enough, the contacts i got around here are good people, willing to share: Sharing is Caring, as they say around here. One of the gifts i received is a very nice dark sativa, and so far it is possibly the worst looking-best tasting one i found around here. Another good point to it is that i found only 8 seeds in the last 6 joints i rolled. No need to mention i'm saving every single seed of this strain. Now, i've been around here for 2 months, and i think i got a real hold of how the ganja grows around here. First of all, most of the ganja that grows in the streets is the result of people removing seeds from flowers and throwing them, literally, on the side of streets. You'll see a fuckton of varieties growing all mixed up. Short sativas, tall indicas, and there's absolutely no care about those: nobody gives water, or actually cares in any manner, to any of those plants. In Phutung, i've seen a few ganja plants growing near a police station. They don't care about those. Second of all, police will remove your plantation only if it exceeds.. a certain amount of plants. Which is not specified. Again, they don't care, up to a point. Which, again, isn't specified. Some say 1 plant, some say 10, some say 3.. Nobody knows, and again, nobody cares. Third of all, all the ganja plantations are the result of either a collection of the old season's seeds, or just naturally grown (No seed collection, just waiting for the next season). This means that in most plantations, there is no male/female separation, hence the reason why i still have to find seedless ganja. The last sativa i've been smoking is, again, almost seedless.. but i guess there's really not much you can do when you got only females, but all your neighbours have males. Lastly, i found a couple plantations. A little one (counting around 40 plants), and a bigger one (counting half a thousand). The little one is exposed to south, and all the plants, even if they show differencies in their genetic traits, don't reach 60cm in height. I'm not joking. Sativas 40-50cm tall, beginning to flower. This means, to me, a max height of around 150cm. Perfect for any indoor OP. I wish i could be there on harvest day... Unfortunately i wont. But with the amount of seeds i've collected, i'm sure i'll find some strains that contain this genetic trait. The bigger one is exposed to north-east. Plants result taller, but i guess because they receive less direct light, hence growing taller to “look for light”, like most plants do anyway. Again, no male/female separation there either. In-Edit: Police cares about dealers. Yesterday, while playing football with kids, what i suppose was either an angry father or brother, came rushing in the middle of the field, with a company of around 10 people, including a well hidden cop. They left the field, and got to this poor guy, apparently only smoking a joint, and stopped him from running. Out of the prairies, another cop jumped out of the field just like what i would describe as “a panther”: i couldn't see him coming until he actually “spawned” in the field. Behind him, other 2 cops. For all i know, they caught the young dude with around 100grams of ganja in his bag. They tied his hands with a rope (Yes, a rope) and brought him away. I was scared shitless, as i too was buzzing a joint. Luckily made it to hide the remaining half-joint in my bag and witness the scene as an innocent little girl. Yes, i feel bad, but what could i do? Yell “Hey, i got ganja as well” and run away? As soon as i'm able, i'll take a couple ninja pics and submit them. Peace! PICS IN! A sativa female, next to a sativa male. The female is around half a meter tall, and is already flowering. The male doesn't reach 30cm. A good sized male, and some females in the background. The small plantation. Huge number of males, some females here and there. I guess this year's harvest's not gonna be great... hehehe Some other plants near the plantation. The ones near the "wall" look much more indica than the counterparts in the field. Peace!
  2. Hello! I recently started to grow cannabis, and after I saw people are talking so positively about the Aceh sativa landrace and since it is very rare, I decided this is a strain I want to cultivate, enjoy and also keep alive for the future. Unfortunately, it is imposible to find in Europe. No seedbank sells this particular variety and people most ofen grow commercially popular strains so I have nowhere left to turn. Does anybody here happen to have any seeds from this particular Aceh sort? Or if there's anybody here who lived or currently lives in Indonesia do you have any seeds from local varieties? If so, please let me know!
  3. landrace

    One of Indonesia's original cannabis strain. This is what i found in South of Sumatra, Lampung, couple years ago. Smell fresh, taste light and energizing. All we need is cannabis regulation not prohibition. Imagine how Indonesian citizen could benefit from this multi-functional plant; food, clothing, house, medicine, etc. When u see the light, stand up for ur right!
  4. Here are some pictures of my current batch of sativas. This is my first time to top and use LST on my plants. If theres any way for me to improve on it, please share your ideas with me. Thanks!
  5. Hi everyone, So, after introducing myself, this will be my first ''official'' post. First of all a background: I acquired 2 Liberty Haze seeds and 2 Purple Kush seeds. I assembled a secret jardin grow room (2 feed large x 3 feet tall) and I purchased the 100w light equipment. After some weeks, when the plants were already popping out, I was submited to surgery and hospitalized. Case to say I'm still recovering but 3 plants died. Miraculously, one LH was still alive and kicking despite her state. I managed to focus all my attention on her. She entered vegetative stage in the beginnings of December. A few days ago I decided to use the space that I have, since that I only have just one vase there, so I went to a store and upgraded the lights to 400w in order to have more yield which was what I intended in the beginning. What happened is that as soon as I did this, the usual stable atmosphere of 25ºC/45% switched to +30ºC/30% or less humidity. I do not have a humidifier here, only a dehumidifier, so the only things I have been doing is sprinkling water on the walls of the tent which grant me some 45% of humidity for some hours, or I heat a pot with water and put inside for a few minutes. I already managed to lower the temperature to what it was when I used the previous light system by purchasing a new fan but what should I do now? In only one night 4 big leaves of my baby already got some scary yellow marks (totally different that in the picture I'm showing you). Should I buy a dehumidifier? Did I stress my plant to much? Should I switch to the 100w lights again and just stick to less yield this time?
  6. como estan hace poco me dieron estos cogollos de regalo me dijeron que es una sativa muy buena pero no me dijeron su nombre tiene un aroma muy citrico y fuerte de antemano gracias
  7. Hello Everybody, Great to be here, big fan of the Strain Hunters and the philosophy of protecting the indigenous growers around the world. I'm from Toronto and hold my MMPR licence which is Canada's federal medical marijuana program (Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations) This not only allows me to consume cannabis without fear of prosecution, I can also grow it as well. So here I am ready to learn as much as I can and I'll try to post as many pictures as I can. Cheers!! SkyPilot
  8. Hi everyone I am a first time grower in SA and planted around end August start of October 2015. I am at 150 days of vegetative growth and now first signs of flowering have appeared this week I have a few photo updates on veg state 2 weeks ago and currently. This is from 2 weeks ago: First image is two of the first planted one has purple stem and started signs of flowering first, the other is same size and looking healthy. The rectangular pot is all the seeds found in some Red Swazi about 20 plants growing together all sprouted by mistake and I am going with it! Last pot is planted at end October Sour Diesel which has shot up as tall as my marijuana forest in 2 months. I will take current plat photos and post today. Others are photos of purple stem (don't know strain :/) and some of other. I keep them on the chairs because there are tiny green grasshoppers that love my bud leaves they look juicy don't they! Previously during flowering stage used Seagro plant nutrients very Eco friendly and Organic seaweed base NPK and micro nutes. I ran out of this and purchased more today had 200ml and used 5ml per liter every 36 hours. I like this fert because it even states it doesn't burn plant if mixed over ratio. Also got some guano organic fertilizer tea which smells like hydrogen sulphide (egg-fart) mixing 15ml per 1liter bi-daily 48hours. Been working hard only ladies, let me know how I am doing and open for comments and suggestions. Was thinking about force flowering at this stage with a perforated black shadow net?

  10. Well, after an unexpected hiatus I'm back and growing again! During my downtime, I've read more on organic and biodynamic gardening and gone much farther down the rabbit hole. My soil mix hasn't changed nor has my compost tea recipe. I have however, stumbled across a new area of study, biodynamic gardening. Most of you are probably more familiar with the term gardening by the moon. Biodynamic gardening takes this a step further by accounting for the not only the lunar phase, but also the lunar sign. Yea, yea I know...that's some real hippy shit right there. But before you blow it off, just know that it's not about mysticism or how to plant, but about when to plant. It's like a scheduling guideline. I'm still a relative newbie in my understanding, but the basic premise is that the gravitational pull of the Moon exerts a measurable force (a.k.a. gravity) on water on Earth and to a lesser degree so do the planets. The Moon's pull increases and decreases as it passes through the four phases (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarter) and as it passes through each phase it also spends approximately 2.5 days in each sign. You beginning to get the scheduling idea yet? Anyway, each sign of the zodiac is associated with a given element (fire, earth, water, air) and each element is better for certain types of garden activities. For example, Cancer is water sign and is the most fertile of all the signs. During 1st or 2nd quarter (waxing / increasing) when the Moon is in Cancer is said to be the best time to sow seeds or transplant plants that produce their fruits or vegetables above ground. While cultivating, pulling weeds, applying organic fertilizers, planting root crops, etc is said to be best done during the 3rd or 4th quarter (waning / decreasing) when the Moon is in a dry or barren sign like Taurus. Anyway, enough of that hippy shit and on to the good stuff...

After approximately 12 days of growth, I transplanted them to 3" containers and left them under the T5's on a 16:8 light cycle for another 10 - 12 days. At which time I moved them to my grow tent (7'x7'x7') under a 1000W Hortilux Metal Halide light and am keeping them on a 16:8 light cycle. In the tent I have a 6" cooling fan for the light hood and an 8,000 BTU A/C unit set to 78*F.

  11. Hi Everybody, I'm doing my annual grow outdoors organically here in the UK, and now I am a member of this forum I can share some of the stages with you up to date. I found this seed in the top of an old grinder that I found in the cupboard, so I really didn't have a clue what kind of genetics it was, but I'm sure I would have kept it in there if it was a really nice smoke, when i get them I usually chuck them. I germinated the seed back in July just to give it a shot and see how it went as i hadn't purchased any seeds like I usually do. So i potted the seed into some nice soil, and a few days later it emerged out the top, with the seed case still intact around it which I thought was a bit odd. It started to sprout up nicely and was looking healthy. After a good few weeks it began to look rather Sativa like, and about two months later started to shoot white pistils so it was good news. And now it has really started to flower up with some nice white clumps of pistils and the leaves are starting to turn very frosty. Its got purple lines on the lower half of the plant so maybe it will have some nice purple nuggets forming. I'm rather excited to see what this one turns out like! I'm suprised, it looks like a hot climate plant and the UK certainly isn't the best for that. I hope that it will finish flowering at the end of October/Start of November, so my fingers are crossed for the next few weeks. Sorry some of the pictures are in Thumbnail form, don't know what went on there. I'll ad some more pictures up over the course of the next few weeks.

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.
