    Sprouting Sativas between June and July

    by Charles
    No comments yet

    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.

    The new Old Afghan NLD

    by Charles
    No comments yet

    Hi there fam ! We return and we bet all in with the Old Afghan NLD.

    Three years ago we received about 100 seeds of this line from a reliable UK source who claimed that this line was the same that came to Holland in the 1970s. We had been looking for an open line of pure afghans for a long time, where we could study its wide genetic range. 

    I will not deceive you, even today seems hard to believe, receive the most worked pure line of history, but without being worked, a trully open line from Afghanistan. Most of the seeds were spent in being able to contrast this information and to begin to understand what we had in our hands. Aeritos and Charles realized the first tests of grow, the line didn’t seem anything special; long plants, thin leafs and long internode branches, little buds little bit tight but with enough resin. Wilder aromas with a medium energizing effect ended with comedown. Flowering times around 80 days, even some phenotype that was not able to bloom at indoors. 

    However, during the last test that Charles did and that you can see or have seen at the Tropical Forum. Some very interesting phenotypes appeared; A shorter flowering phenotype that Charles has maintained in cut / mother form and a long phenotype that Charles can’t keep. They inspired us to finish the study. 

    As it was unexpected, Charles didn’t know to react in time. For that reason, 12 days ago Charles began to germinate the last seeds that we have of old afghan. In total 17 seeds and sprout all: 17/17 very quickly and they have shown their vigor from their early days. The purpose is to find the best phenotypes and the best males to perform an open reproduction with the selected females too.

    When we received the line was marked as the original Afghanistan of Sacred Seeds and for the studies that we have been carrying during 3 years, we can find a wide genetic range, you can find phenotypes very similar to those of the Kandahar area and other phenotypes more similar to Mazar-i-Shariff, so our conclusion is that you can find a gene mix from the northern zone of Afghanistan in this line, at the same time some phenotypes with long flowering or less adapted to the indoors could indicate that it would have been hybridized with some sativa, knowing a little the story could be some of the old hybrids of colombian gold x afghanistan or old sativas from afghanistan, but we can not guarantee it 100% because these phenotypes are not commonly shown.

    Old Afghan NLD short pheno, 70-75 flowering days. Intense citric and sweet bouquet of aromas. Powerful narcotic effect.

    With a sativa structure and a narrow leaf, it forms long colas that need to be held during flowering. Within the gene pool can be found mostly two phenotypes that bloom between 70-90 days, some with spruce tree structure and others more columnar. The bouquet is very sweet in the shorter ones with more narcotic effect being more citrus and old hashish in the longer ones with a richer effect providing a more active and witty start, ending relaxed and narcotic.


    Old Afghan NLD long pheno, 80-90 flowering days. Incredible metallic, incense and church bouquet of aromas. Powerful high effect that elevates you and ends up leaving you on the sofa.

    Finally the reproduction of Old Afghan has gone well, well, a small batch will be destined to be given as a freebie and another small one will be destined for sale through the club. Right now you can enjoy the ones that go as a gift in each order, also together with some Ciskei x Old Afghan, and soon the better batch will be available for sale.

    Get now these new freebies in all orders until stock lasts!

    ¿Es seguro el Cannabis? Riesgos del uso de cannabis y efectos adversos

    by Charles
    posted in Medicinal
    No comments yet

    Y, aunque los partidarios del cannabis medicinal dicen que es seguro, se requiere más investigación para evaluar la seguridad a largo plazo de su uso. Además, en nuestro país no está permitido el uso terapéutico del cannabis. Pese a esta importante premisa, sabemos que hay un número importante de pacientes que están consumiendo la sustancia con esa finalidad. Ello tiene sus riesgos, ya que la carencia de control médico y la variabilidad en principios activos de la planta –como no está permitida, tampoco está controlado y estandarizado el porcentaje de principios activos de la planta que se consume en el mercado- hacen muy difícil un control suficiente que permita una buena dosificación y un seguimiento de su uso.


    • Trastornos psicóticos.
    • Pacientes con problemas psicológicos.
    • Problemas de corazón: arritmias cardíacas, insuficiencia coronaria o pacientes que hayan tenido alguna angina de pecho o infarto.
    • Contraindicado en personas que deban utilizar maquinaria o tengan que conducir. En este caso, se recomienda, si se ha consumido cannabis por vía inhalatoria, esperar como mínimo dos horas antes de conducir. Y si se ha tomado por vía oral – inhalación, cápsulas, con la comida…-, esperar al menos cuatro horas.


    Es muy difícil establecer una buena pauta de dosificación, ya que estamos hablando de una sustancia con una gran variabilidad. Esta variedad en la dosis dependerá de la calidad y las características de la planta de la que se disponga. Lo mejor es aumentar la dosis poco a poco, esperando encontrar el efecto deseado. Es recomendable obtener siempre la sustancia de un mismo origen, ya que las posibilidades de que la cantidad de principios activos sean similares son más altas. El cannabis medicinal se puede utilizar de diferentes maneras: infusión, inhalación o ingestión.

    La inhalación es la vía más rápida, porque los principios activos del cannabis van directamente a los pulmones y su absorción es más rápida. Se hace utilizando «vaporizadores», que son unos aparatos que calientan el cannabis y hacen que los principios activos se volatilicen y vayan a los pulmones una vez se han inhalado. La diferencia con la combustión (fumar) es que esta segunda opción es más nociva porque están presentes algunos agentes cancerígenos e irritantes para las vías respiratorias. El efecto máximo en la inhalación se produce al cabo de 15 minutos, y la duración es de 2-3 horas. La dosis depende mucho la persona y de la experiencia que haya tenido con el cannabis. Hay que empezar siempre con dosis pequeñas. En el caso de las infusiones, se debe añadir un poco de aceite, mantequilla o leche entera al agua, porque los cannabinoides son liposolubles (solubles en aceite) y no se solubilizan en agua. En este caso, los efectos se notarán a los 30-90 minutos, el efecto máximo se notará a las 2-3 horas y el efecto puede durar hasta 8 horas después de la administración.

    Efectos secundarios:

    Los efectos secundarios psicológicos que se pueden experimentar pueden ser muy diferentes. Depende de la calidad del cannabis, de la manera en la que se usa, de la experiencia que tiene el usuario con la sustancia y también del estado de ánimo a la hora de tomarlo. Después de consumirlo, la persona puede tener una sensación de euforia que poco a poco cambia a una sensación de satisfacción, calma y tranquilidad. Otros efectos son: relajamiento, ataques de risa, apetito, gran sensibilidad para la música y los colores, cambio de sentido en el espacio y el tiempo y pereza. También puede tener lugar una falta de reacción, sobre todo durante las primeras horas después de la utilización. Después de la inhalación, las dos primeras horas son las más importantes; si la ingestión es oral, hay que tener en cuenta las primeras cuatro horas. La percepción cambiada puede comportar sensaciones de miedo, pánico y confusión. Y en pacientes que no se encuentran bien, utilizarlo puede comportar una reacción negativa peor. El consumo diario puede afectar a la memoria y a la capacidad de concentración. Se han constatado casos con manifestaciones de intranquilidad e insomnio. También puede llevar a una reacción psicótica, que se puede reconocer por las alucinaciones. Otros efectos secundarios son: taquicardia, hipotensión ortostática (cuando se está de pie), dolor de cabeza, mareo, tener frío y calor al mismo tiempo en los pies y en las manos, ojos enrojecidos, músculos adormecidos, boca reseca… Si se fuma, se irritan las vías respiratorias y a la larga pueden aparecer enfermedades como bronquitis, faringitis, enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica o cáncer de pulmón.

    Riesgos de dependencia:

    El riesgo de dependencia es relativamente bajo cuando se administra cannabis durante un período corto de tiempo (por ejemplo, como tratamiento para reducir las náuseas y vómitos producidos por la quimioterapia). En el caso de un tratamiento más largo (dolor, esclerosis múltiple…), el riesgo de dependencia es más elevado, y en dichos casos será muy importante valorar el efecto beneficio/riesgo y tomar una decisión. Algunos usuarios manifiestan padecer síndrome de abstinencia si dejan bruscamente el consumo. Este síndrome, que es moderado, se caracteriza por irritabilidad, nerviosismo, trastornos del sueño, hiperhidrosis (secreción de sudor exagerada) y anorexia. Hay que aclarar que la dependencia viene determinada por factores más psicológicos que físicos.


    • El cannabis puede empeorar alteraciones psicológicas, especialmente en personas psicóticas. Por tanto es importante tener en cuenta esta premisa antes de decidir tomarlo.
    • El uso del cannabis puede influir en la capacidad de concentración y reacción. Por eso se recomienda no conducir ningún vehículo ni utilizar maquinaria peligrosa si se ha consumido cannabis. Si, a pesar de todo, es imprescindible coger el coche, se deberá esperar como mínimo 2,30 h si se ha tomado por inhalación y 4-5 h si se ha tomado por ingestión.
    • Los efectos secundarios psíquicos pueden dar lugar a un ataque de pánico. Es aconsejable estar acompañado si se utiliza cannabis por primera vez.
    • El cannabis contiene productos de combustión nocivos, como por ejemplo materiales cancerígenos y monóxido de carbono.
    • No se puede utilizar cannabis durante el embarazo ni la lactancia.
    • Antes de utilizar cannabis, es muy importante conocer y contrastar la medicación que se está tomando.
