What happens when you cross a pure Afghan with a Northern Lights and a Skunk? You get an Indica Crystal Extreme aka ICE plant that is fully covered in resin glands. The buds produced by this magnificent hybrid were so frosty, so sparkling, there seemed no more fitting a name than ICE.
Over the years, literally thousands of marijuana strains have been discovered, bred and smoked. No strain is quite possibly more famous, more legendary, than White Widow. The origin of this strain remains a controversy to this day.
Fruit Spirit is the current result of the never-ending quest for new flavours that send your taste buds dancing with every hit of the joint/bong. This marijuana strain is one of the sweetest skunks we have come across in our time.
During the 90s, a group of passionate growers from the Netherlands travelled to South Africa to gather genetics which could be added to their library. Using the genetics they collected, this team would give birth to a nearly pure Sativa (12% Indica) made exclusively with those genetics.
Ever since a pair of brothers started breeding Sativas from all over the world back in the 70s, cannabis smokers have been truly grateful for the existence of a type of plant called Haze. Originally, this was the culmination of years of breeding thousands of seeds from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and South India.
After the haze genetics came to Holland and several hybrids were made, an American expat would later combine one of these hybrids with a male derived from old school haze seeds creating the Amnesia Haze.
Around the mountains and hills of Oregon and California, a crew of connoisseur cannabis breeders were working on some new strains, which would eventually lay the foundations for the North American marijuana varieties that are around today.
When it comes to strains that have laid down their mark on the cannabis plant genetics that are around today, there are few names that can be mentioned as often as Northern Lights. The exact makeup of the Northern Lights heritage is thought to have come out of west coast America, originally from eleven different seeds.
An absolute classic strain which laid the genetics for the majority of marijuana seeds around today. Originally, a mix of Colombian, Mexican and Afghan land races creating the 50% Sativa 50% Indica genetic that led to a new generation of cannabis.
There are always lots of requirements to fill when deciding which strain to grow: strength, yield, flavour, ease of growth, suitability to climate etc. There is one marijuana plant that tries to bring together all these features in a perfect balance in order to produce the ultimate cash crop
