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!
Bisho P. F1 has gradually become one of the flagship of the house and one of the strains most cultivated by tropical growers that is why we have been tuning this incredible hybrid for several years and finally… We are honored to announce the restocking of our Bisho P. being one of our best selling hybrid in our history. So far we have always used several different Ciskei mothers for it, but after several years studying how they genetically interact with our well-known Pakistan Chitral Kush 2006, we have selected the mother that offers the best results and who is less influenced by the pakistan genetic, resulting predominantly Ciskeis plants. Turning our Bisho into a clear feminized version of our favorite South African sativa.
The mother Ciskei used belongs to the 3rd generation of this line and was selected by Charles during 2015, where this was one of the best generations of our famous Ciskei line. Her strong vigor and the good ratio leaf / chalices that she posses, in addition to that characteristic aroma of acid green apple with sweet touches and pepper make it one of our favorites. The effect is creative and meditative, with an introspective aspect, being very useful for artistic or contemplative tasks. It is recommended to be careful with the pH stability of the soil to get the best of this selection, which in 65-70 days delights us with great productions.
It’s our bet where we can find less influence for our PCK’2006, our Indica with an intense purple color and very fast in flowering. Hybridization provides speed with strong structures, perfect to support greater yields, sweeter aromas and greater amount of cannabinoids/ terpenoids. The result will not leave anyone indifferent, finding incredible aromas mixing acid and sweet, many of them fruit bouquet of pineapple and green apple. It is a good option to optimize a SOG system with smaller plants and large central colas, but also through pruning and greater work on its structure can be obtained very productive large plants. Predominantly green color phenotypes and some with pink tones make it the best bet for those growers who can not grow our Ciskei in a regular version and in this feminized version they will find those qualities they are looking for.
After these years of work where it has already proven to be one of the favorite hybrids of growers around the world, we are sure that this new version that we love, you may like it much more. We have been able to refine its qualities and offer a final hybrid with the characteristics that we liked most about the union of these two incredible landrace lines.

While in the southern hemisphere the growers are smoking and harvesting their sativa plants, in the northern hemisphere the best time to sprouting ours begins. But this may well also serve for them by applying to the months of December and January.
Between June and July is the time of year where we can best optimize the most sativa strains. The first thing to know is that sprouting sooner or later does not affect the time of harvest, as a strain that ends its flowering in October will do so in that month regardless of whether we sprout later or earlier. Therefore, delaying the sprouting moment only influences the size of the plants, which will have a shorter growth process. The flowering process will be the one that corresponds and it will arrive when it has to arrive, once the plant is sexually mature it will begin its flowering.
Sprouting during these months more discrete plants are obtained, which is a considerable advantage to avoid problems with them. Experienced growers prefer that they be smaller to avoid theft or setbacks with the Police. Another very important reason to plant in this season is the stability of time, the most appropriate temperature and the many hours of sunshine, which make the sativa strains have a much healthier and more vigorous growth than in other times, being a more favorable climate and similar to the one in the tropics, where they come from.
We must have several aspects to take into account when offering our sativas the best possible conditions. We recommend the use of pots of between 20-40L (5-10 gallons), depending on the strain can reach a minimum of 1m in height at the time of beginning flowering. What can make you avoid problems due to long growths, such as the appearance of pests, accumulation of salts by nutrition, or uncontrolled plants in size, in addition to requiring less work care. The substrate in turn must be of the best quality, due to the short time it will take the plant to develop, it must be spongy and with the necessary nutrients to complete a satisfactory growth without being fertilized, as much provide root stimulator and some preventive for pests. Add also with respect to fertilizers, that sativas prefer organic solid fertilizers, such as manures and other composted ones. A soil rich in life will provide nutrients to the plant as needed without overfertilizing and this will give us the best aromas and flavors in our sativas.
Something also to take into account with these sativas and since their flowering can extend perfectly until October, November and December, will be the rains and cold that will come. Generally, these sativas show good resistance to rain and fungi, but we must also bear in mind that heavy rains and winds can break the heaviest branches in flowering, so it will be highly advisable to give structural support to the plants in case of be necessary. Without a doubt, temperatures below 15°C will stop the flowering of the plant, we recommend putting strains that can finish just before that time arrives in your area, this will also make the plants have a beautiful color in their flowers and a copious resin production.
At the time of harvest, there is a special attention to correct drying and subsequent curing. This final part of the process could completely spoil all the work done or on the contrary, turn your flowers into a product of the highest quality that will last longer while maintaining its qualities due to the cooler temperatures of the time that comes before and in which we hope you are already enjoying your sativa flowers.
We recommend you fast sativas such as Nepal Highland or Ciskei Highland. Others with more energizing effects such as King Congo or Zambian. Or those that will blow your head like Old Congo or Double Zamal, among many others. No matter what type of high you’re looking to have, the quality of your seeds can make it all the better.
