Blue Kripple - Dr Krippling

Indica dominant Blue Kripple is the product of a cross between Medicine Man, Blue Rhino and Big Bud. Medical users love its pain relief, recreational users appreciate its ability to relieve stress and growers know that any strain with Big Bud in its genes is going to produce big yields.

The flavour of Blue Kripple is a vast improvement over pretty much anything you’ll find in the average bathroom cabinet or pharmacy. The top notes are full of blueberries and are both sweet and earthy, the base notes are clear and pungent skunk as is the aroma.

The effect satisfies both the head and the body. The high THC content acts as an invigorating power-shower for the mind. It briskly washes away all the mental dross which has accumulated in the user’s mind, replacing it with a refreshing and energising sensation. Then, with the mind cleansed, it’s time for the Indica element to begin and the user feels like they are gliding comfortably and smoothly from a vigorous shower into a warm and comforting bubble bath, where both mind and body can unwind and be soothed together. This is a period of exquisite pain relief for medical users.

Blue Kripple is a fairly straightforward choice for growers. It can grow indoors or outdoors but indoor growers are well advised to be scrupulous about ventilation. You may think there is nothing in this world more delicious than the smell of skunk, but your neighbours may disagree. Likewise outdoor growers may want to think about prevailing winds and make sure that they do not drive the smell of the plant to nearby properties.

Growers familiar with Big Bud and its offspring will be expecting a long grow time followed by spectacular yields. In actual fact this strain will grow indoors in a mere 7 to 8 weeks, with an outdoor harvest around the middle to the end of October. Yields are, however, very respectable for this sort of grow time with 450-800 gr/m2 and/or 650-1300 gr. per plant being perfectly realistic. Obviously the upper end of these yield ranges will be reserved for more experienced and/or dedicated growers who make the effort to create optimum growing conditions.

Buzz Light Gear Marijuana

The pure Sativa Buzz Light Gear is arguably a choice for weed connoisseurs, having been bred for its exquisite flavour and aroma. It is a cross between Amnesia Haze, Kali Mist and G13 Haze.

We’d love to say that the effect will take you “to infinity and beyond” but it would be a whole lot more accurate to say that it will give you a scintillating, cerebral experience, which will cleanse away all negativity, frustration and confusion and leave you positive, energized, motivated and full of clarity and creativity. People who are new to this strain would be well advised to start off with a very small quantity until they become familiar with the effects to avoid the possibility of being overpowered by it.

In spite of its credentials as the connoisseur’s choice, this plant is actually a fairly grower-friendly option. In principle it will grow outdoors or indoors although in practice any Sativa is going to need far more headroom than an Indica, which can be a challenge for indoor growers. On the plus side, this strain does produce truly impressive yields of 400-800 gr/m2 indoors or 650-1400 gr. per plant outdoors.

Large-yielding strains, however, tend to need plenty of time to reach their full potential and that is absolutely true of Buzz Light Gear. Indoors it needs 10 to 12 weeks, outdoors it needs until the end of October/start of November (Northern hemisphere). For all the huge buds may look tempting, growers must be prepared to offer this strain the time it needs to develop to full maturity. Growers who want or need quicker results would do better to look elsewhere. Likewise outdoor growers in harsher climates may want to think seriously about whether or not there is a realistic prospect of up to 3 months of dry weather and extended sunshine.

Frisian Duck Marijuana

Sativa-dominant Frisian Duck was developed from Frisian Dew (about 50/50 Sativa/Indica) and DucksFoot (mostly Sativa). It’s an unusual strain, which was developed for hardiness both in terms of being able to tolerate colder weather and in terms of being able to forgive poorer growing conditions and/or lack of care. Its main selling point though is that in Veg and early stages of flowering, it doesn’t actually look like cannabis!

In appearance, Frisian Duck has been compared to a Christmas tree and it’s main flavour could easily be thought of as pine, it’s distinctly menthol, there is also a citrus element and an undertone of earthy, spiciness to provide a solid anchor.

The overall effect of Frisian Duck is a bit like walking through a pine forest on a cold winter’s day. It’s refreshing and even exhilarating without being overpowering. This strain will clear your head and leave you ready to get up and go (or to rest without being overwhelmed by an over-active mind) rather than having the powerhouse effect of some other strains. This makes it a great choice for daytime use.

Frisian Duck takes its name from the unusual shape of its leaves, which look like a duck’s footprint rather than being the traditional cannabis shape. As the plant moves to flowering, it can begin to look more like a traditional cannabis strain, particularly at the top. It was designed for outdoor growing and is reasonably tolerant of colder climates. Having said that, the harsher the climate, the more shelter and protection it will need and it does require sufficient sunlight. Left to its own devices, this variety will easily reach 2.5 metres. Indoor growers will need to count on at least 1.5 metres. In either case, this strain’s purple colour can make it look a lot more like an ornamental tree than a cannabis plant.

Frisian Duck was essentially created for quick and decent results for amateur growers. This means that it will flower in about 9 or 10 weeks, with an outdoor harvest around the start of October (in the Northern hemisphere). Yields are only moderate, but then the plants which produce the highest yields tend to take much longer to flower and need much more care and attention.

Incredible bulk strain

Indica-dominant Incredible Bulk is another big yielding, heavy-hitting strain with impressive parentage. It’s a cross between Big Bud, Super Skunk and Green Spirit. It offers the yields of Big Bud, the strength of Super Skunk and the clean flavour of Green Spirit.

In terms of flavour, this is a skunk weed and there’s no two ways about it. It is unmistakably pungent, but still sweet. Some people have suggested that there is a menthol element to the flavour, making it more refreshing than the average skunk.

Although this strain is very much an Indica dominant, it still has high THC, which is what you’ll feel first. Your mind will clear and any mental negativity will be banished. You’ll feel motivated, energized and quite simply capable of anything. This feeling will then begin to mellow into one of total relaxation as the Indica element comes into play. Any tension in your muscles will be eased. Those who need pain relief will find everything they need and more with this superlative variety.

Growers will be pleased to know that this strain was created specifically to address Big Bud’s lack of consistency. Unlike its illustrious ancestor this variety is 100% reliable, 100% of the time. It’s a great choice for novices and those working in challenging conditions because it is unbelievably resistant to just about anything any grower could throw at it. While no strain can be totally impervious to mould and mites, this one is about as close as you can get. It will forgive lack of water and lack of nourishment, it will withstand extreme fluctuations in heat. All it asks for is a decent amount of light and it will reward you with an excellent yield in a mere 8 weeks (or around the middle of September in the Northern hemisphere).

On the other hand, growers who do work to create optimum conditions for this outstanding performer will be amply rewarded. The key to growing this variety successfully indoors is to switch it to flowering by the time it reaches two feet in height, otherwise it can be difficult to keep it contained. It will grow well in soil or hydro and will make the most of any additional CO2.

Sucker Punch Marijuana

Nothing to do with a certain Californian tech company, Think Different was the brainchild of the Dutch Passion breeders who took the stellar AK 420 and crossed it with an unknown Ruderalis variety to create an autoflowering Indica-dominant hybrid with high THC content.

The flavour of Think Different is hard to describe, it’s like a very high quality herbal tea made of exotic flowers. The overall taste is one of sweet, tropical fruits, not citrus, but with an earthy aftertaste to give it body and depth.

The effect begins in the head and neck, relieving stress and creating a feeling of euphoria and high energy levels. As the immediate kick from the THC begins to wear off, the CBD creates mellow relaxation throughout the body. This acts as an anchor on the cerebral high and so the main effect is one of a clear, stress-free mind, in a body which is completely free of any pain or tension.

This is a versatile strain which will treat emotional conditions such as anxiety, stress and mild depression and will also provide relief from physical pain and nausea. It’s energizing effect can be used to combat physical and/or mental fatigue, which can manifest itself as a feeling of being “over-tired” but unable to unwind enough for proper rest and to prepare both body and mind for healing sleep. It’s also popular with creative people who need motivation and inspiration.

As an Indica dominant, this is a compact, bushy strain, which will grow out of doors provided that it is given plenty of sunlight and a reasonable amount of shelter. As an autoflowering variety it will be ready for harvest in as little as 10 weeks, which makes it a good choice for growers in climates where, realistically, there are only likely to be a few months with temperate conditions and long days. It’s also a good choice for novices as it’s very straightforward to grow and will be forgiving of those still getting to grips with basics such as lighting and watering. More experienced growers and/or those prepared to work at creating optimum conditions will be rewarded with yields to match.

Sucker Punch Marijuana

Indica-based, autoflowering, Sucker Punch is the progeny of an old-school (pre 98 cut) Bubba Kush crossed with the ever-popular Candy Kush. Growers will recognize the classic Kush smell as soon as they enter their growing space.

The taste is also typical of the Kush family. At first users might mistake Sucker Punch for a mild Sour Diesel. Its earthy taste definitely has an edge of fuel to it. After a few draws, however, the unmistakable Kush spiciness becomes apparent.

It also becomes apparent that Sucker Punch well deserves its name. This is the strain to use when you really need some deep-level relaxation or heavy-duty pain-relief. Whether you’re troubled by insomnia, stress, tension headaches or a really severe case of the winter blues, this strain will punch all your troubles away and enable you to get some proper rest.

Sucker Punch is also a knockout choice for growers, particularly novices. As an Indica, it’s nicely compact, making it perfect for growing in small spaces. As an autoflowering variety, it is a great choice for growers who have restraints on their time, space, energy or resources in general. This strain flowers in about 10 weeks and therefore growers in at least moderately temperate climates could feasibly produce two harvests a year. Indoor growers who have complete control over their lighting can take advantage of the fact that although this strain does produce a large central cola, it also produces buds across numerous stems and this can be encouraged by ensuring that the whole plant is reached by the lights. In optimum conditions, this strain will produce excellent yields. In average conditions, it will still produce a respectable crop.

Although Sucker Punch is essentially an Indica and its effect is the deep relaxation you would expect, it does have high THC levels, in fact 20% or even slightly higher is perfectly feasible. This means that the overall effect of Sucker Punch can be described as “out but not down”. In other words, while this strain offers a deep, relieving stone rather than a high, the THC content keeps it refreshing, clean and positive.

Kush Doctor Automatic

The Sativa-dominant hybrid Kush Doctor is a proud descendant of the legendary OG Kush, which is a rare Sativa dominant hybrid in the (currently) largely Indica-dominant Kush family. Initially OG Kush was crossed with another Sativa-dominant hybrid, Ultra Lemon Haze. When this proto-strain was stabilized, it was crossed again with the Indica-dominant hybrid Berry Ryder.

The result is a taste sensation. Citrus and berry flavours dance in the mouth, while base notes of spice and diesel provide an earthy contrast to the sweetness and the unmistakable touch of Kush is always present.

As you would expect, the high is cerebral and refreshing, but the Indica element gives a certain level of grounding. This means that this strain works as well for those in need of clarity and energy so that they can get on with their work (or gaming session) as it does for those who need to clear their heads of the day’s frustrations and worries so that they can rebalance and get a proper sleep.

Since it is a Sativa-dominant, Kush Doctor’s natural tendency is to grow tall and proud, but growers working in a smaller space will be pleased to hear that it will happily tolerate being trained into a more compact form. In fact Kush Doctor will uncomplainingly put up with conditions which would shrivel more delicate strains and will still produce decent yields. This makes it a great choice for outdoor growers in colder climates. Outdoors the harvest is around the end of September/start of October (in the Northern Hemisphere).

It’s also a great strain for novice growers or those with challenging personal schedules, since it can cope with being left to its own devices better than many other strains. In particular it can cope with lack of watering, although obviously there will be an impact in terms of yield.

By contrast, indoor growers who can provide optimal conditions will be rewarded with numerous, lengthy buds, which grow densely in compact clusters to produce a yield of up to 300gm2 in about 11 to 12 weeks.

In short, Kush Doctor really is a strain with something for everyone. It offers simplicity for novices, hardiness for growers in harsher climates and respectable yields for growers who can offer it the best conditions. Users get a refreshing high which is perfect for any time of day.

Dreamberry Marijuana

An Indica-dominant hybrid, Dreamberry offers the deep relaxation of an Indica with the crisp edge of a Sativa. It’s a cross between the renowned, medicinal Blue Dream and either Blackberry or Berry Ryder, both of which are known for their relaxing properties and outstanding taste.

Dreamberry offers the best of both worlds. As a medicinal strain it is excellent for both pain relief and the treatment of depression and other similar issues. Its taste is, however, a vast improvement on many prescription and over-the-counter medicines. This is a sweet and delicious berry hit, with a spicey base and a buttery creaminess which may make you think of fruit desserts or the best fruit sweets.

The high offers the deep relaxation you would expect from an Indica, but the Sativa element keeps it refreshing, which means that this strain can be used for pain relief when you need to have your wits about you afterwards. Alternatively it can be used to help you relax in preparation for going to sleep. THC content is moderate, tending to be around 15% to 18%.

Its Indica-dominant genetics mean that Dreamberry is a fairly compact plant, while its Blackberry/Berry Ryder lineage shows through in the close internodal growth, which is great news if you are looking for a strain which will offer substantial yields in minimal space. Indoor yields of 350gm2 or even more are perfectly feasible. The Sativa element tends to show through in elegant, elongated buds, which grow in clusters on numerous stems rather than hanging on a single cola. This is the main reason why Dreamberry is known for being an excellent choice for those who wish to use a Screen of Green (Scrog) system.

Dreamberry will grow outdoors, although growers in colder climates might find they do better with an indoor set-up. If growing in soil, paying attention to soil aeration (for example adding some perlite) can pay dividends in terms of healthy root growth, thereby allowing the plant to reach its full potential. The flowering period is about 10 to 11 weeks and for those growing outdoors, the harvest is around the end of September (Northern hemisphere).

brains escape weed

Another production from legendary Dutch grower KC Brains, Brains Escape weed is a combination of a rare strain from Switzerland, Edelweiss and an exotic strain from Brazil that includes genetics from Ecuador. Although it has strong Sativa characteristics, it is in fact close to 50/50 Sativa and Indica.

Brains Escape weed has a slightly skunky smell, offset by the aroma of lemon peel, while the flavour has citrus notes as well as a hint of hash. The high builds over 15 to 20 minutes and it stimulates rather than overwhelms, making this a good daytime smoke. Dispensaries prescribe this strain for poor appetite and mild pain.

Outdoors, the Brains Escape strain can really stretch out, exceeding two metres, while indoor growing produces plants of up to 1.5 metres. The leaves are wide, dark green and long-fingered, while the buds are spear-shaped and covered in orange hairs. The THC level varies from 18 to 20 percent.

Brains Escape weed will thrive indoors in soil or hydro, although the flavour is improved by soil growing. Flowering time is eight to 10 weeks and yields are around 160 grams per plant. Outdoors, the plants are quite hardy and can go as tall as three metres. Harvest comes in late September and you can expect around 800 grams per plant.

The Brains Escape strain is easy to grow and with the right care and attention can be cultivated outdoors in cooler countries. The high is pleasantly relaxing while allowing active pursuits and socialising, so it’s a good choice if you prefer not to end up prostrated in front of the TV.

auto grand daddy purple

Auto Granddaddy Purple (Auto GDP) is an Indica dominant strain which was created by crossing two other strains, Granddaddy Purple and Hindu Kush. Hindu Kush forms the basis of many of the skunk type weeds of the modern era. Auto GDP is an autoflowering type which means that it flowers by itself without the need for the complicated lighting regimes that many strains require with indoor growing.

Auto Granddaddy Purps weed features a hash like smell and taste when you smoke it, with sweet undertones and a hint of exotic spices. The high is a strong body hit which can lead to some couch lock, especially for less experienced smokers. This weed’s medical uses include alleviation of muscular pain and treatment for depressed appetite.

Like those of most autoflowering strains, Auto Granddaddy Purps seeds produce plants that are on the small side although they can attain a height of up to 100 centimetres in the right conditions. The buds are dark green with a purple hue appearing as they mature, and they’re covered in sticky crystals. Leaves, which are not profuse, are dark green. THC content varies from 14 to 19 percent.

With indoor growing, these plants do well in soil or hydro and you can expect yields of up to 800 grams per square metre. Outdoors, plants can yield up to 900 grams each and you can grow this strain in cooler northern climes. Indoor flowering is from eight to 10 weeks while outdoor harvest comes at the end of October.

Any Auto Granddaddy Purps review will identify the fact that this plant’s autoflowering characteristics make it easy to grow and therefore a good choice for gardeners with limited or no experience. More experienced growers choose this strain for its dependable yields and potency.
