I'm getting arrogant about how well my work is going. No really. And here's why: 7 years ago I started experimenting with breeding cannabis. My intention at first was to just eliminate the need of seed dispensaries. I think they're too expensive, they sometimes deliver low quality without taking responsibility (80% of them at least) but what drove me the most was the lack of.. How do I say this.. Continuity? Anyhow, what I mean is that sometimes you buy a White widow, and it's the best tasting, best yielding plant you've ever had. The year after that, the seeds from the same strain, from the same store, suddenly suck monkeyballs. I don't like that. I can be pretty autistic in those cases.
After a few years of meddling around, I struck gold with the Project White Rihanna. I didn't know I struck gold, I didn't even intend to. It just happened. As soon as I realised what I was dealing with - some 5 years ago? - I started documenting and actively breeding these gems to what they are now. So, where are we now?
This.. This is where we are.
Lets start this slow, alright? Here are some regular, store bought "XL Fem. autoflowers".
Nothing too special right? Just two, regular run off the mill (is that how you use that phrase?) autoflowers in a 9 litre container with some regular potting soil. They seem pretty alright, don't they?
I disagreed, 6-5 years ago. This wasn't good enough for me. This wasn't fool proof, this wasn't disease resistant, this wasn't worth the space in a backyard. Remember, here in the NL's it's illegal to have cannabis plants, however, when you have 5 plants or less, the police only drops by if you case trouble or if somebody thinks you are causing trouble. It's a grey area. But to give up garden space, and 'amount of plants' for a mere 15 grams is just something that doesn't sound right..
I got to work, and a few years later, this is the result. Notice the size of the lighter, which is the same in both pictures. Both containers have the same amount of soil, the same amount of nutes, the same conditions (with the only variable being that one container is standing a few feet away from the other).
White Rihanna #3. Or, White Rihanna F3. Sown in April, just like the plant mentioned earlier. Except this one, only just started flowering, while the other store-bought plant is almost halfway done flowering.
Another pic from a birds-eye view. Literally, because I couldn't see the screen of my camera while making this picture. I'm 1,88cm tall (+/- 6 feet and 2 inches). This plant reaches my shoulders, and it has only just begun flowering.
Which means it'll be done before September, meaning that it will avoid the terrible autumn weather we're used to..
Isn't that amazing? I do think so.
Do you guys think there would be a market for these kind of genetics? What would you ask for these seeds? I'm thinking about maybe opening a little webstore of my own with a few strains. I'm wondering what people would like to pay for it, and if it's even something possible without plunging myself into debt.
