If it’s all about making money and “Smashing it” we made the wrong decision. We decided not to goto HTCC in Denver CO. Instead we gathered the crew in full force and spent the stoner holidays in Humboldt County, in the towns of Arcata and Eureka. Over the weekend we toured farms, bought local and hung tight with our #TeamHSO family.
just some shots from the gardens..
Here’s a central shot of a 16 1000w HPS + 4 600w MH light room, with plants in rock wool cubes on 8 4×8 trays and tables. This room uses a simple hand watering top feed to waste in this sealed environment agriculture styled chamber. Co2 is released from bottles at 1400 ppm, which is meter-controlled. Daytime climate is usually 78degree/45%humidity within a 10 point drop at night. At the end of cycle, temperature is dropped down another 10 degrees. Flush is always a minimum of 10 days on the short cycle indicas and up to 20 on the longer sativas.
Using these awesome Method Seven filters to show an embedded canopy shot, in between the the two trellis layers of support and restriction. This strain’s working title is Citrus Punch, due to the smooth citrus flavor from the dried flower smoke and concentrates. This cut was a gift so the lineage isn’t clear but the popular assumption is that it is derived from the Tangerine Dream genetic offered by Barney’s Farm.
and here’s a finishing crop shot..
I wanted to see how the Lemon Jack would turn out using the old school hot water purge.
It smells amazing and tastes GREAT!! Im really impressed with this strain!
Can’t wait to see how this does as shatter.
The EmDog was a pleasure to grow, but needed some SERIOUS de-leafing this time around!! She loves her haircuts!
She can take a good amount of food!! I didn’t have any issues running her all the way up to 1600 ppm at the end of week 6. She has the look and tendency to grow more leaning to the Chem side of things in my opinion, especially based off of structure and smell!
With a 9 week finish she wasn’t the quickest but for sure did over 1.5 lb per light! Very very nice headstash as well!!!
This is by far the stickiest weed i have ever come across!!
This cut was given to me and we finally now finished flowering her out! All i can say is DIABETES causing weed! So sweet to the smell with rock hard buds…she is gonna be a pleasure to smoke!
She grows a bit funny and is not a heavy producer. Small tight nugs…nothing for a commercial room, but one of my favorite and savory smokes to date!
A few months ago i got a few cuts from a friend hyping this version of OG. Ive ran numerous versions and hybrids over the years, and this one definitely competes with the best of em!
An absolute gem and joy to smoke! Super stinky, very gassy and greasy! Im interested to see the results of a new project we did with the Woody and a Tripple OG father given to us by Dr Frost awhile back. The results should be stunning!!
After running a bunch of elite clones for a quite long time, with no updates, i decided to go through some photos i have taken to compile a grow journal from our last batch of seeds….the EmDog released by Humboldt Seed Organization and B Real of Cypress Hill.
Fresh EmDog seed starts
I learned from the finest…the cleanliness, attention to detail and style of growing i contribute to the LA Soul Assassins / Cypress Hill family…thank you.
Cuts or seed starts are always made fresh, in a clinical sterile environment, using new trays, materials every time.
After taking cuts with a sharp new razor blade i give them a few weeks veg to get to about 2 ft tall…then making their way into the pre-flower room.
EmDog week 3 veg
EmDog ready for transplant and flip
EmDog transplanted – end week 1 flowering
Uniformity and cleanness is key. I put 12 under a 1000w light in hugo cubes, feed to waste daily. Im not a practitioner in recirculating systems…
EmDog week 3 flowering
EmDog week 5 flowering
EmDog week 6 flowering
EmDog week 8
EmDog finished and flushing – week 9
Upon a 14 day flush…the first 4 days are only RO water and molasses…the remaining 10 days is just RO.
EmDog ready for cut and trim – end week 9
The EmDog is a super vigorous, uniform and hearty plant to grow! She loves her food and was bred for a hydro-organic system. A steady supply of cal-mag is needed!! At weeks 6 through 8 you will need to manicure her bigger fan leaves….it is a mandatory de-leafing!!
The gassy chem / OG smell lingers in the later weeks and really comes out nicely with a proper cure.
Enjoy and hope you liked the pics!!
HAPPY HOLIDAZE!! 🙂
Blueberry Headband Stable Shatter
Flowering: 7 to 8 weeks
Indoor yield: High
– – –
The HSO crew…also the same line breeders for the Emerald Triangle bank, i think (now from the UK ive heard) gifted me a small stock of this powerhouse strain in reg form. After popping them and doing selection i found 2 keeper phonos that are now in rotation. One a super heavy blueberry leaning fruity pheno and the other one a bit more gassy/kushy.
Interesting taste, reminds me of the blueberry from the early days in Amsterdam. The yield is way above average with this strain….a real good one for hash production!
Thanks again to “The Welder” for the purge and process!
Two thumbs up on this one!! Ill have more journals and updates on this strain for sure.
Today I visited my Dutch friend “E” at the HSO breeding facility in the middle of nowhere and made a little bit of wax & stable shatter head stash from some of my Master x OG trim and b buds from the last pull.
I used Power 7x refined, through a 14″ glass (2″ wide) tube with my special multiple filter technique. After a complete purge on the electric slow griddle with silicone mat, i then vacuum purge it until there are no residual solvents inside. From there the shatter gets flame polished and cured.
After smoking some of the small finished wax test run…we knew it was FIRE and went ahead with the rest of the shatter run (for personal medicinal use ONLY!).
Master x OG Wax & Stable Shatter
Type: Indica dominant
Solventless?: No – Power 7x used
Flowering: 7 to 8 weeks
Indoor yield: High
THC: Ultra High
The taste is very sweet with hints of bubba/master and OG…it leaves a lasting taste in the mouth and has a super couch-lock effect.
That buttery smell makes you crave breakfast even in the middle of the night!!!
