What does it smell like?
I would say like a pungent lemon aroma, its not too strong of a smell sometimes I can smell it from 5 feet away but other times I don't smell it as much. If I go up close and gently press one I get the pungent lemon smell or citrus-pine type of odor.
This is one of two Ethiopian Highland plants. The other one had a yucky buzz but this one is super positive. Love it. May try the other one again just to be sure. ACE is the breeder.
Reminds me of the Malawi
I think the Malawi is a more potent and crazy effect than the Ethiopian or from what I have read on it. I think the Malawi is disorienting and racy with a heavy finish?
The Ethiopian is quite gentle and even with a smooth comedown.
Malawi is strong for the first 20-30 minutes. Then it is a blast for the next three to four hours. The Frenchy pressed hash process reduces the initial heaviness. Rosin pressing might be a solution as well.
re GG's video..good job..maybe go to10hrs on..
.it almost seems he expects it to turn into a compact saleable indica..
it will not..and it will not make the dough either
sativas are about ta kind of high..,,if you are fortunate ..
mood altering thought provoking happiness characteristics
they are also more of a crapshoot in the potency department
i am given samples the most beautiful terpy[lol] resinous dense stony buds..ALL the time..
none of them ever do it for me..most times i would rather sift tthrough unfinished not [even]the top of of the line sativas i order to get the high/characteristics i am looking for
get the right sativa and even with way less thc %..
and it may make you forget about the latest 'terpy'
compact ..quicker finish indica/hybrid..
and know what i am talking about
shoreline ag cuts have rooted..will flower out the moms/dads
will see if this ag is the holy grail..
the other fifted mex plant i just grew is my 100% go to weed now
not the longest legs..but it was tested way early
but it is dang potent and gives me the energy/creativity/and happiness the
other boutique high end mainstream doesn't
as well it tastes awesome .unidentifiable ...but not not some fruity terp i can identify..
but icouldcare less about taste..if the right high isn't there
thats how i found malawi..
a dizzying ascent that made me wanna lie down while my head buzzed
then get up and play guitar for three hrs non stop
i call malawi dark/earthy/electric
but done well the first 20min is bewildering
This is Panama Red from 70's genetics. Taste is perfume or floral and sweet. High is visually psychedelic and fun. Sativa effect with no burnout. I am sure the Rev would like this.
I have some mid 70s Acupolco Gold from my dad when he passed away. I got a bunch of stuff. Old old genetics. He started growing in the early 60s. I have an entire wine chiller kept at 44° and has been for the last 5 years. Clear full of seeds. From him.
And @Mohican I still need to email you back. About the sativas. My ol lady finally picked one. I didn't forget you
Sorry about your Dad but you have some great fortune with the seeds. If you need advice on germing them I have some experience. Wear nitrile gloves, using a alcohol wiped sharp blade trim off the pointed end of the seed shell and the edges all around where they meet. Not hitting the white stuff inside of course. Distilled water with a pinch of earthworm castings to sit a day and use the water to wet paper towel to put the seeds into. Baggie them with a seal mostly shut and keep them at 80 degrees F if possible. If they do not sprout, then change the seeds into fresh water and paper towels, baggie. They will mold if you just let them sit there too long.
I would be willing to do 'preservation' work on them and many others on the forum too I am sure. They do not make them like the old days. Prettier and more thc today, but not the finer effects I look for.
I have some old seeds I need to give that a try:
What kind of guitar do you have? About 28 years ago I walked into a guitar store that had two used Gibson Les Paul's hanging up both for $400 each, I still have it.
les paul = way to go!
50th anniversary strat ..and 20 watt pre fender amp i have had for 50 yrs
shoreline seed moms soon to be 12/12 ..i see a couple pistils..a couple that look male..
tiny clones i think are transplanted ok ..[take dome off]
Ah a nice old Tube amp, sweat; I would guess 6V6 power tubes?
I have an old Tele and a 1967 Showman. It zaps me every once in a while. I have my Grandpa's collection of brand new RCA tubes still in the original boxes.
Here are some of the outdoor sativa girls:
That's worth something, especially if they are the ones used it audio or guitar amps! I build a few guitar amps and a few mono block audio amps in the past. I really love that tone, but there is something magical about it all.
Plants looking good! Where I am the damp weather is bringing on some mold issues I been defoliating and harvesting some of the crowded buds early, been checking every day cutting off buds with mold trying to keep it in check, I think I caught it early enough but I may have to harvest earlier than I wanted.
Back to one of Rev's suggestion was to let the "Tree" turn gold. So its taking my plant a long time, since 12/12 its been 113 days, (3 months, 21 days).
Then on my outdoor plants I had to thin the buds out due to early mold found, I been checking this daily.
These are the ones that the wood chuck topped so the buds are half the size they should be.
And these are the source plants to that bud that drying out pic above.
