9 Pound Hammer by Jinxproof Genetics

9 Pound Hammer is aptly named. 2014 Santa Cruz Cup 1st Place Winner for best indica. This indica-dominant strain will have you flat on your back with its knock-out punch! It is a 3-way hybrid strain bred from GooBerry, Hells OG and Jack The Ripper. At maturity dense buds are set against a backdrop of autumnal colours.

Indoors flowering will take between 50 - 60 days producing average yields. The predominant pheno is the GooBerry one which grows like Kush and really packing on the resin quickly. The hammer blow is a full-body stone which will put you to sleep if tired. It also provides great relief from pain and stress.

BCK Phylex Cut held by GK Genetics 

While shopping at a local hydroponic store, I had a brief conversation with another customer. Before parting ways, the kind stranger gifted me three seeds. He said, “I’m pretty sure these are Birthday Cake Kush.” Even though they’re 'presumed' to be Birthday Cake Kush, those lines cannot be confirmed. Because of this genetic uncertainty, and not wanting to mislabel it, my selected female is referred to as BCK Phylex Cut. 

The female I selected expresses exceptional vigor and uniformity. She has a robust stalk, strong branching, mild stretch, and maintains a respectable average height. She is very responsive to various training methods, and is easy to clone. She’s fast rooting and she creates a solid root ball. Her leaf structure changes through maturity. She starts with fatter leaves that have deep, wide, sharp serrations. As she gets older, her blades begin to round, tighten up, and represent more of a hybrid style leaf. She finishes with tightly spaced, sharp, ‘saw blade’ style leaves that have a sativa influence. She expresses sporadic duel serrations. She also has a propensity to claw, which is characteristic, and looks like she’s suffering from Nitrogen Toxicity or over-watering. Trichome development begins early in flower. She’s covered in long stemmed trichomes that leave a gritty, beach sand type feel. She has a higher leaf to calyx ratio that some people may not find desirable. However, the flowers she produces are solid and not airy. She's an excellent yielder and flowering time is approximately 63-70 days. BCK Phylex Cut is potent, and sativa leaning. It has a nostalgic, ‘old school’ effect. If BCK Phylex Cut is in fact Birthday Cake Kush, I’d suspect this phenotype leans toward the Vishnu Kush and more so its Blue Dream grandmother because of the sativa dominant traits pushed forward. 

Aroma: Earthy, Spice, Effervescent, Aloe Lotion, and slight Cheese

Blackjack by Nirvana

Blackjack is known around the medical marijuana community as a sativa-dominant strain that can obliterate away stress, anxiety and depression for hours and hours with its exceptionally long-lasting high.

This makes her a go-to in the morning for a wake and bake session that relaxes you just enough to not couchlock you, while reaping the sativa benefits of a beautiful head high that overcomes you with euphoria and makes you talkative.

This strain is a cross of Black Domina and Jock Horror, so you can expect a nice blend of sweet citrus, balanced with an earthy pine flavor that is incredibly pungent. You can thank her high trichome-encrusted calyxes for her pungent smell too. Those babies have been known to swell up to the size of grapes!

Gelat.OG by Seedsman

Gelat.OG was bred by crossing Gelato, itself a cross of the Platinum pheno of Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet, together with an OG Kush male plant. The Gelato brings plenty of THC and a rich, dessert-like scent.

This plant has a compact structure, remaining fairly squat, and tends to form a large central cola with little in the way of lateral branching. Its buds are very dense and hard, quite dark with orange pistils, and dripping with resin. Some plants may develop purple colorations.

Its scent is reminiscent of mint, cookies and wood while sweet citrus flavors are noticeable with some earthy notes on the palate. THC production is very high and its effect offers a powerful sense of euphoria which evolves into extremely physically relaxing sensations.

Ghost Train Haze #1 by Rare Dankness 

Ghost Train Haze #1 is The Original Ghost OG crossed with Nevil's Wreck. It has been measured as producing in excess of 25% THC and named by High Times as one of the strongest strains available anywhere!

With a really potent high and sugar-crystal trichomes liberally covering the buds and smaller leaves this is a real crowd-pleaser of a marijuana strain. With 70% sativa genetics it has a longer flowering period of between 65 - 85 days with yields that are very high. Its aroma and taste have a definite sour and Haze character.

Tangie by Nirvana

There was one thing in particular about Tangie that stood out to us, and it’s beautiful and doesn’t need any colorful ways to say it . . . clear headed.

It’s simple, but it’s an amazing little thing because it allows you to focus on each way the high affects you without feeling hazy. Your clear perception of each individual effect, from the electric zaps that pulsate through your legs to sparks of creativity arising in your brain, create a zen-like headspace that makes you one with the high.

It’s of course fitting that the flavor and aroma is a bright and clean tangerine, which is lovely since most other citrus strains tend to be lemony or grape. Her sweet and dank aroma combined with her strong sativa happy and euphoric high will help give you the energetic kick you need to make sure your morning starts off great.
