Anybody ever run any bingo pajama?
Yes I have, it smells and tastes like perfume. Which I believe Jitterbug Perfume was the original name for it. Truly unique smoke, unlike any flavor I have encountered in cannabis. Not a cash cropper, very light and airy buds but was fun to grow nonetheless. My favorite part about it was packing a bowl and watching someone hit it for the first time, the look on their faces was priceless, had one person ask me if I sprayed perfume on it. Lol

They're two different crosses. Jitterbug Perfume is Kudra x snow lotus.

Speaking of Bingo Pajama, it was pretty neat to see it pop up as a freebie recently at Breeders Direct Seed Company (I would guess that's why @Moka_Pot asked about it).

First the fuzz at GLG, then Bingo Pajama at BDSC. I wonder if we'll see any more Appalachia hybrids brought out of cold storage in the near future?

Was it more sativa or indica leaning in your experience?

This was my favorite of my 5 Super Silver Hashplant ladies I believe. Smelled like haze, but would bust your jaw and leave you sleeping on the couch. Very strong and euphoric. Absolutely shook my friend from Varanasi, never bragged about his big chillums after tasting a bit of straightener rosin.
She's a beaut' Clark. Lol. From the original Vacation movie for all you youngsters.

Thank you for the correction. Must be the Kudra that is coming through with that perfume.

Well this thread sure picked up some steam today!
We got back on track though and to keep the train rolling I will share my latest Bodhi cultivar as the experts say. Last year a kind soul on this thread mentioned a fire relief fundraiser on IG from the Bodhi fam. I bought a cool supernatural selections tee that came with a appreciation pack of Stardawg Guava x SSDD. I popped two only one made it though. Ended up a with a female that smells fantastic. The smell is like blueberry muffin or pancake mix. Very sweet artificial blueberry. I dig it. I will run again. Approximately nine weeks on this one. We will see how the smell and flavor carries over and the exact flower time but its in my smoke rotation for now.

@Jimmyjett don't let others here get you to change your mind. I've grown Bodhi gear for a very long time and I agree with you that there is stuff out there a lot stronger than Bodhi. After the last batch of Strawberry Goji I got some nice phenos but I got a lot of low trichome airy buds. 50% of the plants that came out female were chucked in the garbage and no use to anyone. I posted a bunch of pics here about 6 months back of the good stuff but didn't mention the bad because I knew the fan club would say "user error".
There isn't a breeder out there providing beans that sprout 100% plants of XX.X% potency/cannabinoid profile etc whatever bro, that's a really unrealistic expectation. I've had some plants from bodhi gear that are super potent, a lot more have been super terpy or excellent entourage effect, or cannabinoid profiles that are super unique.

Yeah bman does have strains that are dick in the dirt potent, we all know what those are, don't need to be recommended ad nosium. But my point being I don't think he really breeds for raw potency numbers bro, you guys might be barking up the wrong tree?

The bodhi beans I have grown mostly have Some excellent qualities to the effects, excellent terps, excellent structure and growability.... I mean if it isn't strong enough, maybe make extracts? But if we sprouted enough seeds, I mean we have had no trouble finding plenty strong plants in the past. We aren't slouches for potency either, we have no problem discarding plants that aren't to standard. Some better than others of course. We even found "strong" potency where that line wasn't even exactly "known" for it. So happy hunting dude.

Also, why would anyone on this planet who knows what they're doing and asking of cannabis, actually expect to find a bonified "keeper" in a mere 10 seeds. Seriously. That is ridiculously low numbers I don't care who is breeding the beans. And just cause it comes from an elite cut doesn't mean it breeds elite cut quality offspring.... I mean we find very NICE plants in many breeders' packs that we would keep around for months/years, Bodhi not excluded! But permanent keepers.... In our small garden for the many years we have kept perpetual grow, sprouting beans from reputable breeders we have found 2-3 bonafide keeper cuts. So let's call it 2.5 "keepers" (0.5 being a keeper male, but I mean cmon hahaha) from hundreds of plants probably? And a dozen of the markets most reputable bean sellers. I just have trouble taking serious someone who made a post bashing in a thread like this, when your account was less than 24 hours old. Share some pics of your lack of success bruh, spread knowledge.

Some would say I'm feeding the trolls.

Anyways, here's some mothersmilk.

Just sexed my nursery today .. lots of males got the boot, probably not going to do a seed project rn too
Much other stuff to focus on..

banana spliff 7/11 were M
Blue sunshine 6/11 were M
Ancient OG F5. 7/9 were M
Wolfpack. 5/10 were M
Puravida. 6/14 were M

The girls are set to be planted on new moon ( May 12th ish )
The ancient OG males look really vigorous. Huge pinkish candy striped stalks already ( I correlate this with purple finishers. #broscience) . Kinda am considering crossing the blue sunshine x ancient og to try and mash large growing genetics together.


There’s a lot of non bodhi stuff I’m doing as well, surprisingly some of the feminized work I’m running this season is looking very strong. I’ve always thought that feminized lines lacked the vigor of open pollinated organically grown seed. Perhaps this season will make me rethink that notion !

I have grown out a few packs of Bodhi gear over the past few years . There is lots of variety between the plants . Just like I would expect from the crosses he does.
I pop at least one full pack of each strain and have always found at least one keeper quality plant per pack. That being said I also do believe it is completely possible to roll the dice and have 14 none keeper quality plants. That is just the nature of these f1 . Now how a person goes about talking about those 14 plants and the words they use could be a problem . Not because I need a " safe space " but because there is really no reason to be a douchebag about it .
I believe that what Bodhi does is give us great building blocks to unlock some real magic from the f2s .

This is my third year running Koko the Gorilla Ghani . She certainly does not lack in potency or in GG#4 terps.

facts don’t care about your feelings. I said truth and you can’t handle it. The other strains from other breeders I ran were much better. Sue me. I said Bodhi must have some good gear and I may have been unlucky with my two packs but you only hear what you want to hear. It’s like a gang up thing on the guy who dared give an honest opinion. I’m not the one with the problem. You guys are being babies about all this
Ill try to help out here.

Bodhi’s strains aren’t developed for mass market appeal or consistency. He breeds for unique/novel terpene profile and highs that aren’t found in current lines. Potency isn’t a big focus because potency does not determine the quality of the high. If you want something to get reliably fucked up after a long shitty day at work, just grab CSI’s Chem 91 or TK work and you should be good. The potency of stuff like Chem 91, Chem D, GMO, OG, etc is bound to be reduced when crossed with males who were selected for novel traits.

When you run seeds from Bodhi or others in his circle, it is best to understand what each male will bring to the cross. Wookie 15 is known for medium potency, mild narcotic/relaxing effects, lavender/tropical fruit/burnt rubber terps, good resin development, medium framed growth, and medium yields. TK, in my experience is a very recessive plant so it is easily dominated in most crosses. If you wanted potency out of the TK x Wookie, I probably would have wanted to run through 4-5 packs to find what I was looking for.

Goji Pinesoul is just a pheno from Goji F1 which is Tahoe (Nepali) OG x SL. SL brings uplift with a potency/narcotic effect reduction. Wookie further compounds this. Again, not a great cross if you are trying to get absolutely blasted.

At this point I don’t really see Bodhi as a breeder for regular people. I think we are seeing him slow down with polyhybrids, and he is putting more effort into Landrace or near-Landrace lines. The Snow Lotus, Strawberry Milk, and Appalachia, lines were all semi recently retired. He has lately been working with Lush and Kashmir, and recent IG posts are all about afghani/Iraqi work. I see nothing regarding any upcoming poly hybrid males which leads me to believe he is pushing towards preservation and novel characteristics as a breeding priority.

That is exactly what I think he should do too. Any idiot in a tent can produce extremely potent bud with the refined lines that we have available. Not many have the time and patience to breed the near-Landrace progeny that could give rise to the next popular flavor/high profile. There is a severe bottleneck in cannabis genetics, and Bodhi’s releases are a solution to that issue.

The side effect here is that landraces just aren’t as potent as modern hybrids specifically line bred for potency. Fine with me. I think I’d rather have a line that requires more of a hunt, and the possibility to deliver potency with new terpenes/taste/effects.

Also.. I grow a lot of Bodhi/Doc D. I have a 3% keeper rate as of right now. If you want something unique and as impressive/more impressive than mom/dad, expect that keeper rate and pop seeds accordingly.

I’m a medical cultivator and have people traveling from all over the east coast to grab some of my product. Primarily flower/live hash rosin/cured badder. Just about every person who buys from me ends up refusing to go to anyone else. It’s really fun to hear things like “I haven’t seen something like this in 15 years!”. BUT they don’t see the 97 other plants that I had to run to concentrates because they were such absolute shit.

For anyone looking for higher keeper %’s with Bodhi lines, I do highly recommend Doc D/Magic Spirit Seed Co. The lines are still a bit of a hunt, but the plants are almost always more stable, more consistent, better yielding, and have impressive potency across the board.
 
So…. i’ve lurked…. Maybe 60%? of this thread randomly over the last couple off months. Finally caught a great GLG sale at 4:20… got beans and ready to introduce myself to the proclaimed Bodhi Mafia Gang (someone trademark that please) and then yesterday/day before was a BLOWOUT!! Frigging RollItUp man…. Friggin RIU….

Happy the good vibes are (mostly) back…. Thanks for the TONS of info and strain writeups… jesus i need to reread alot of this…

So for my first Bodhi purchase I got…
Snuggle Funk (Black Domina is top 3
)
Sunshine Queen (needed that SSDD, gonna get a couple more packs since its discon…)
Triple Goddess (why not)
Mountain Temple (everyone needs a sativa right?)

and GLG tossed in
SunRa
Sundance
Lemon Thai x 88HP
Wookie Orgasm

and a BOUNTY of Bad Dawg freebies for the vault. (O and a couple Straydog and Mosca strains but that belongs in another thread)…

Long story short… my addiction has just begun haha. dropped 6 Snuggle Funk to hunt a bit and a couple MT, SSQ, and TG just to get a feel… (4 Mosca Moonshine Cookies hit water too, sorry had to throw them in)

Should be a VERY Merry Labor Day at the Purp Household.

No argument. You said you considered GLG at fault and used the word fanboy. Hence my reaction, nuff said. TROLL. If you look back through my posts you will see that I am nice, helpful and show respect around here when warranted. Oh yeah, I also give grow reports, smoke reports and pics of my stuff. Sorry if I hurt your feelings but for $30 a pack you can't beat Bodhi, period! I don't like confrontation on here but will speak up if need be, that's all and I will drop it after this post. Ok, now, nuff said. Lol. See, im laughing, guess I do need to grow up. Lol,
Didn't he also say GLG is his go to bank? Because he certainly didn't get any Big Buddha (or the other brand I can't recall and don't care to search for) seeds out of UK/EUR from GLG. Pretty sure the only non-US breeder GLG has ever sold is Karma.

Nothing like the rap lingo strain names he threw out. Yea he bagged on bodhi and glg then went on to say theyre both great and buying some more. bla bla bla Guy was contradicting himself thats for sure

0DB429CC-6FE8-4010-8F43-1117982988C5.jpegPortable Space Ship - (Pure Kush x Laos) x Kashmir. Loose haircut. This was the bulky pheno. Straight lime. Super hashy smoke. Not sure if it was this pheno but one had my friend literally jumping up and down at the taco truck. I found some phenos to have a bit of a up kick to them, but seemed to lean towards chilling. Really interesting effects and scents. Popped a few F2’s the other day.
