We were looking forward to bringing you this news, the second generation of our Durban Poison’70s is finally ready. One of the strains that marked a before and after in us, our return to the origins and to offer all the landraces that we have available so that they are available for professionals now and in the future.
Durban Poison’70s is a sativa strain from South Africa and one of the rarest pure strains in the world. It’s well known for being the strain used by the warriors of the Zulu tribes and appear in great amount of current best hybrids. It has remained unchanged since the 70’s by a small group of South African local growers until we received it a decade ago. Since then, it has been used in hybrids like Durbakistan (Durban x Pakistan) or Durban Punch (Durban x Ciskei) but had never been marketed in pure form. We are currently working to offer this strain in the near future. But as we know the long waits are hard, for that reason we would like to share with you the first steps of our work where we have already found the qualities that have made it famous worldwide !
In this second generation, the work was very clear, to continue studying how works genetics, to clean up any errors that could arise from hermaphroditism and to make an open reproduction with the best specimens. And from now on this work will be available openly and through our Club for VIP members only. The quantity is limited, approximately there will be a total of 500 seeds available, so do not miss this unique opportunity to get one of the most exclusive strains in the world.

We present exclusively and limited way these two hybrids that marked a before and after in the history of cannabis. The best of the 90s in Holland NorthernLights#5xHaze a creation by the legendary Nevil Schoenmakers and that we also offer as a tribute to everything he contributed for so many years and the creation of this sector in Europe. And on the other hand, from the USA one of the most used hybrids since its inception, we speak neither more nor less about Pre98 Bubba Kush and Sour Diesel.
NL#5Haze‘90s It’s a hybrid created during the eighties by Nevil Schoenmakers through a complex search to develop an unique Sativa/Indica hybrid using the legendary Haze and NL#5 that he received from America. It quickly became the most demanded strain, which led it to fame as well as winning the first High Times Cannabis Cup which ended up forming a milestone in history and making it known worldwide by all old school smokers. All this supposed a radical change in the breeding proyects and in the consumption of this plant in the Amsterdam of the eighty and ninety decades. We present in a very limited way this hybrid that is currently under work. This old Sativa version from NorthernLights#5xHaze has already captivated our hearts and our brains with its intense effect.
Black Sour F4 is Pre98 Bubba Kush and Sour Diesel are hybrids from the United States and have marked a before and after in modern breeding separately and that still have much to contribute as has been seen in recent years, where many of the best current breeders are already working with them and we did not want to lose this great opportunity to work and offer these unique lines. We are sure will not leave anyone indifferent, it is a hybrid of strong and branched structure that forms large super resinous buds of the highest quality. With super powerful brain effect, which has led us to name some individuals as a «Goosebumps» chemotype with very high concentrations of THC and Myrcene, which makes you super sensitive from the first puff and increases the libido, stimulating and enhancing sexual and energetic activities, a pleasure for all the senses.
And finally, we have also taken the opportunity to make new hybrids and test them, the best ones will be offered as Limited Edition and Freebies through our Private Club. Ask for more information if you need it!
It’s time to get these beauties that have created the history of Cannabis as we know it. Do not miss this very limited opportunity!

From the fifteenth century to the nineteenth century, Greece was under the control of the Ottoman Turk empire who controlled the entire Middle East. The Ottomans are a tribe of Central Asia who were forced to migrate by pressure from other tribes to present-day Turkey, from where they subsequently spread throughout the Middle East. Most likely, hashish and its production by screening have been introduced and inherited from central Asia through Persia or India to most of the regions of this area that have arid climates essential for the sifted collection of resin, being popularly known during the last centuries the hashish produced in Lebanon, Syria, Turkey and Greece. During the last two centuries, Greece was a place where hybrids were made between those plants that produce hashish and others derived from areas such as South Africa, Southeast Asia and South America, but this information can not be assured 100%.
We received a very little quantity of seeds from this North Greek line through one of our clubbers with the intention of being recovered, studied and shared. In turn, thank the original source, a grower named Fat Rasta who was the first to obtain these seeds through a very reserved family, from the north of Greece in the area of Serres- Macedonia, which he claimed to carry between 60 and 100 years cultivating this same variety. Serres is the main area of agriculture in the country, it has been cultivated on the slopes of the mountains and valleys for thousands of years probably being the tobacco one of its major crops, which makes it a very common area in the use of cannabis and hashish. The climate is particularly a combination between a mild mountain climate with not very pronounced winters (temperatures between 5-15ºC), and a semi humid warm climate, without hardly dry season (temperatures between 25-30ºC), that means, that the rainfall throughout the year is somewhat constant, always generating a relative humidity that goes around in summer over 50% and in winter over 70%.
During our first studies we get beautiful specimens, with a high ratio of males and only one female, this gave little margin of selection, but without fear we decided to try to perform a first flowering test with all individuals for see its stability and quality. The result was no surprise, since we had already been warned that with some probability this variety could show some specimens with hermaphroditic traits or show some intersex flowers during their flowering. Of the males, some were completely hermaphrodite showing both male flowers and female flowers with what they were quickly discarded. Others males did not achieve optimal flowering in which to release pollen, most likely due to high temperatures, but it was in the last male that we found a specimen with very good characteristics; strong and branched structure, leaves with leaflets of medium-large size and marked serrated, with a high production of viable pollen. The female had more elongated leaflets with a bit less marked serrated and a small difference in the size of the internodes, these being slightly longer, some aspects that can coming from those sativa genes mentioned before and that provide a superior yield. During its onset of flowering some male flowers appeared in some internodes that were easily eliminated by hand and later proved that they did not continue appearing, this gave us a chance to recover the line and also try to clean some of these traits.
We offer you exclusively the first reproduction to recover this line that needs to be worked to stabilize and clean it. You can find homogenous plants with an aspect between 70-80% Indica, genes that most likely come from the Middle East area, and that do not seem to share similarity with the plants of the Hindu Kush. With good production of branches and flowers as well as high quality resin. Flowering time between 8 to 10 weeks, failing to specify more in the following tests. Rich bouquet of sweet spices aromas, lemonade and old hashish background. The effect is uplifting and leaves you in a balanced state between activation-relaxation, entering in a very pleased mood. Already in these first tests, we have detected that it is a strain that does not likes high temperatures and very dry climates. It will be more specified in the following tests.
