What Is Delta 8 THC?

Delta 8 THC is a powerful cannabinoid native to the cannabis flower. Delta-8-THC is an isomer of CBD, which is a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid found in hemp, and is found in our products with less than 0.3% Delta-9-THC. In other words, Delta 8 THC is sort of a middle ground between hemp, CBD and THC-Delta-9.

According to The National Cancer Institute, Delta-8 THC is defined as “an analogue of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.” They also stated that “this agent exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC), the primary form of THC found in cannabis.”

All-Natural, Plant Based

Our Delta-8 THC products are derived from the hemp plant and CBD, which is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. The National Cancer Institute defines Delta 8 THC as “an analogue of tetrahydrocannabinol with. appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties”.

  • Neville’s Haze Regular Seeds – 18

Description

Neville’s Haze is the legendary Haze strain that was named in honour of the father of modern cannabis seed companies, Neville Schoenmakers, an Aussie who was resident in Holland. It has an old-school scent and taste that will perhaps be familiar to cannabists who were smoking imported sativas such as Thai sticks and the like in the late sixties and early seventies.

Neville’s Haze is a cross of NL5 Haze A with a Haze C; as such it is 75% sativa plant that is primarily intended for indoor growers in high latitudes – the only way that northern Europeans can grow a tropical sativa to maturity. Outdoors it will thrive within 10° of the equator and, grown in a greenhouse, maybe a few degrees higher. Indoors the best and most useful pheno-types are those that will finish flowering in less than 16 weeks. Plants that are still not finished by that time may be considered of little use unless the grower finds another trait that is particularly attractive to them in which case it is worth noting that cuttings taken from these plants can be re-vegged and that they will finish 2 or 3 weeks quicker than the mother.

When grown indoors under 600 watt lights yields of 400 gr/m 2 are normal – not a huge amount for such a long flowering phase but then Neville’s Haze was never about the yield. The flavour and high are what makes this so attractive to sativa connoisseurs. This plant grows tall and thin very much like a vine, and it is advised to put them into flowering indoors as soon as cuttings are rooted or seedlings have a few sets of leaves.

Outdoors growers should be prepared to utilise some training methods as this can become a very tall plant. North of the equator harvest time will not be until December, hence the need for a very warm climate! The aroma and flavour is very spicy and herbal with pine notes. The effect is totally cerebral, psychedelic and, for the uninitiated, like a trip on a rocket. Prepare for blast off!

Therapeutically useful for stress and depression.

About Mr Nice Seedbank

Howard Marks and Shantibaba, the men who created Mr Nice Seedbank, met during the late 1990’s while living and working in Holland. In 1995, Shantibaba had set up the Greenhouse Seed Company. Coincidentally, at the same time, Howard was released from a lengthy imprisonment in the USA.

During the next few years, the two became very good friends and discussed the possibility of working together. They decided to start a seed company to help growers throughout the world.

In 1998, Shantibaba sold his interest in the Greenhouse Seed Company and, as a sole trader, set up Mr Nice Seedbank, which has always been and remains a Dutch company. He established Mr Nice Seedbank, with its forty parent plants, to make strains and seeds available to all levels of growers in order to help them spread the genetic diversity of cannabis.

Rather than joining any seed companies’ bandwagon by merely chasing money, Mr Nice Seedbanks dedicated their efforts to make old and new world seeds available for growers. They did not care how many seeds they sold or whether they had a profile in the limelight.

In 1999, Dutch law changed and no longer permitted the production of seeds. However, selling seeds imported from another country remained legal. Mr Nice wanted to fulfil their project without breaking any country’s laws. Accordingly, they moved growing operations to Switzerland, where the law permits growing cannabis for seed production. Many Dutch seed companies lost plants, mother rooms, and seed crops, but in Switzerland, Mr Nice seed production blossomed.

Mr Nice Seedbank has consistently maintained a visible presence on various helpdesks, directly interacting, testing, and researching with the growers of its products. Their aim is to help people, wherever they are, who have worked or intend to work with any of their product.

About this Hybrid Strain

If you’re a fan of the rapper Wiz Khalifa, you’ll be happy to know he’s had his own cannabis strain grown and named after himself. The Khalifa Kush strain is an indica-dominant hybrid that also goes by the names Wiz Khalifa OG, Wiz OG, and KK.

Khalifa Kush THC levels often fall between 24 and 28% while its dominant terpenes are myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene. Khalifa Kush genetics show it’s a descendant of OG Kush.

When harvest-ready, its buds are small or medium-sized, dense, forest green, and often shaped like cones with a thick layer of trichomes. The scent is reminiscent of lemons and pine while its taste is similar, though with a bit of sour earth apparent on the exhale.

Despite being Indica-dominant, Khalifa Kush weed has been described by consumers as being energizing, uplifting, and mood-enhancing, while also improving their productivity. Some felt less fatigued while others experienced pain-relief. Because of this, Khalifa Kush has been used as a choice strain for daytime use by several reviewers and has been called a wake-and-bake strain.

About this Indica Strain

The indica strain Blue Cheese derives its name mostly from its scent, baring a savory cheese-like smell with a sweet berry undertone of which it inherited from its parent strains. Despite its cheesy smell, its taste tends to veer towards berries. Some reviewers have mentioned a hint of strawberry in flavor.

Blue Cheese was created by cross-breeding a male indica strain of Blueberry with a female hybrid of UK Cheese.

Its normal THC level is around 15%, with its highest-testing topping off at 20%. The high that Blue Cheese creates is a very noticeable elated and relaxed state of being, with a trace of inducing creativity for many reviewers. Suggested use is in the evenings and at night.

The high is known to be a creeper, not instantaneous, so beginning slowly with this strain is suggested. Though Blue Cheese brings a relaxing body high, it does not cause the body to feel heavy like many other indica strains tend to do – so for many, it won’t create a “couch-lock.” Rather, this strain will bring about a very mild idleness due to its comforting effects.

Besides the normal cotton mouth and dry eyes, Blue Cheese can cause minor dizziness or paranoia.

When growing, this strain does best in cool climates and is considered easy to cultivate. It produces a high leaf to calyx ratio and takes anywhere between eight to ten weeks to flower.

How Many Cannabis Plants Should I Grow? (For the Biggest/Fastest Yields)

Should you grow just one cannabis plant or many to maximize your yields? What’s the best number of plants to grow considering your grow light and the size of your grow space?

What’s the best number of plants to grow?

There are a few different schools of thought when it comes to the best number of marijuana plants to grow in an indoor setup. I’ll walk you through the benefits of growing just one plant vs the benefits of growing many, and then give you some real-life examples with specific setups. That way you get the information you need to make the best decision for your garden

One or Many Cannabis Plants: Costs vs Benefits

Growing Just 1-2 Cannabis Plants at a Time

  • Easier – Fewer plants make it easy to pay attention to each individual plant and it’s often easier to reach all the plants.
  • Much Simpler – You won’t need to compromise as much between plants with different needs.
  • Less Time Daily – Spend less time on a daily basis caring for plants (making nutrient water, watering, training plants, etc).
  • May Be Only Legal Choice – Many growers live in an area with a limit on the number of plants they can grow (for example in Canada you are only allowed to grow 4 plants at a time, and each legal US state has different growing rules). These growers don’t have a lot of choices when it comes to how many plants to grow.
  • Less Variety – You’ll only be able to grow one or two strains, instead of many strains at once.
  • Fewer (or Smaller) Harvests – Yield is based on how well you fill the grow space with plants before they start flowering. With just one or two plants, it takes extra time for each plant to fully spread out in the vegetative stage so you achieve the best yields. This results in fewer harvests a year. Alternatively, if the grow space has empty spots during the flowering stage you’ll end up with smaller yields.

Should you grow just one or two plants at a time and let them get big?

It took 8 weeks in the vegetative stage to train the plant to grow this way. Yet it was a joy to focus on just one plant and get to form a relationship with it.

In the flowering stage, the plant rewarded the effort with buds that filled the space where the plant was trained

Growing Many Cannabis Plants at a Time

  • Faster Harvests – Especially in a large grow space, several plants can fill the space faster during the vegetative stage than just one or two plants. This allows the grower to switch to the flowering stage sooner.
  • Max Yield for the Time and Electricity – A shorter grow period results in extra harvests. If you are looking to get the biggest yield in the shortest amount of time (maximizing your yield for the electricity), this is an effective strategy.
  • More Variety – With a higher number of plants, you’ll have the ability to grow a greater variety of strains at the same time.
  • More Daily Care – You will usually spend more time on a daily basis tending your plants, and it’s often more difficult to reach the plants in the back.
  • Different Plants Have Different Needs – Each plant prefers slightly different levels of nutrients, light intensity, etc. The differences can be especially stark when growing many different strains at once.
  • More Difficult to Train – Training plants to grow wide and flat results in the best yields, but it can be more difficult to train multiple plants. Some plants grow much taller/faster than others, and you have work around all the other plants. To simplify things, some growers avoid any training when growing many plants at once.
  • May Be Illegal Where You Live – It may be against the law to grow a large number of plants even if growing is legal where you live.

Should you grow many plants so they fill your grow space faster?

It only took 6 weeks for those plants to completely fill up this grow space. Imagine how long it would have taken for one plant to grow this big!

No Matter How Many Plants You Grow…

  • Similar Yields Per Square Foot – Cannabis yields are based mostly on the size/shape of the canopy in relation to your grow light, not the number of plants. Filling the total surface area of plants under the light with bud sites is what matters, and it doesn’t really matter if you use one plant or many to fill the space before flipping to the flowering stage.

That means even if you can only grow a few plants at a time, you can still get the same yields in your grow space as someone who can grow more plants! It just might take a little bit longer in the vegetative stage.

It doesn’t matter whether this canopy was created by one plant or many. However you got here, your yields will be about the same as long as everything else is equal!

Growing Many Plants Shortens the Vegetative Stage But Doesn’t Necessarily Increase Yields

When it comes to getting the best yields as fast as possible, you will often have better luck growing several plants than just one or two. This is because it takes several plants less time to completely fill up a space than it would take one plant to fill up that same space.

However, time might not be the main concern. Many growers don’t mind an extra few weeks in the vegetative stage if it makes the growing process easier and more fun.

But in the end, the actual yields will be about the same as long as the space does get filled. Given the same total number of colas and size of plants, it won’t matter much if you have one plant or twenty as far as yields are concerned.

What’s the “Optimal” Number of Cannabis Plants?

If you can legally grow as many marijuana plants as you want and are willing to put in the extra time and effort to grow as many plants as necessary, what’s the best number of plants to grow?

Each plant should get plenty of direct light and at least a foot or two of space to itself

The optimum number of plants depends mostly the size of the area under the grow light. A plant generally should get at least a foot of space to itself to really be able to grow and spread out, and it’s often better to give plants a little more space, especially if you have powerful grow lights like HPS or LEDs!

Suggestions for Example Grow Spaces

2’x2′ Space – 1-4 Plants

2’x4′ Space – 1-6 Plants

3’x3′ Space – 1-6 Plants

4’x4′ Space – 2-9 Plants

These suggestions definitely aren’t set in stone, but they serve to give you general starting guidelines. It is possible to grow more plants in these spaces successfully, but with more plants, you will often start running into difficulty being able to reach the plants in the back and care for them properly. Sometimes it’s more of a pain than it’s worth.

These two plants fill this entire 4’x4′ space, but you could get the same amount of canopy coverage with many smaller plants. It’s up to you to decide how you want to fill your space

Keep in Mind! Your yields are limited by the size of your grow light, not the number of plants. Light is like food for your plants and has a direct correlation with yields. The more plants you grow, the less each individual plant will get as far as light. Think of your grow light like a pie, with each additional plant getting a smaller slice to eat every day.

It’s tempting to grow a lot of plants, but you don’t want to spread your light out too thin! If you grow too many plants you might get less than an ounce per plant, and your buds will be airy and light!

Your yields are ultimately limited by the size of your grow light, regardless of how many plants you grow.

All of the following grows took place in a 2’x4’x6′ tent and produced a comparable amount of weed

3 plants (5-gallon pots)

4 plants (3-gallon pots)

7 plants (2-gallon pots)

It can be hard deciding what number of plants to grow in your space, but ultimately the best thing you can do is to pick a number and dive right in to growing. I believe in listening to your gut. When in doubt, always start with more plants than you need so you have the option of ditching any plant that doesn’t germinate, grows poorly, or ends up being a male or hermie.

Always start with more plants than you need, just in case! But remember, you may have to throw some of them away…

Each grower has a different style, and as you get more experience, you’ll be able to dial in your grow to what’s best for you and your setup.

Many growers find it more relaxing and enjoyable to grow just a few plants (or even just one). On the other hand, growing many plants at a time produces more strains, more often. The right choice depends on you and your needs.

So unfortunately I can’t give you a “best” number to end all numbers, but I hope you now have a better idea of how many plants to grow in your space!

passion fruit from seed

Growing Passionfruit Vines
(Passiflora Edulis And Passiflora Edulis F. Flavicarpa)

Growing passionfruit is too difficult here, they told me. The climate is too harsh, the soil is too poor, the termites will eat them, a wilt disease or the nematodes will get them.

That was disheartening, because in most of Australia passionfruit is dead easy to grow.

I have to admit that my climate and soil do present extreme challenges. I usually say, “If I can grow it, anybody can!”

Well, I did eventually work out how to successfully grow passionfruit, even here. Very successfully! Passionfruit is one of the fruits that I give away by the shopping bag full. My kitchen bench is always full of them when they are in season, my fridge is full, the freezer is full of pulp, and I still eat last year’s when next year’s crop starts.

I do have a little secret to growing passionfruit so successfully, beyond the growing methods that I explain below. I share that secret on the page where I talk about passionfruit in permaculture designs.

How To Grow Passionfruit Vines

What Is Passionfruit? What Do Passionfruit Vines Look Like?

I’ve been asked about growing passionfruit trees. Well, you already know it from my headline, the passionfruit is a climbing vine. More precisely, it is a very vigorous and fast growing climbing vine.

Passionfruit vines have large, three lobed leaves, little tendrils that wrap themselves around whatever they can get hold of, and the most gorgeous flowers of all fruits in my garden. (Ok, after pineapples.)

The fruit is either yellow or purple (depending on the variety, see below), round, and about 5-8 cm/2-3 inches across. It has a smooth, thick, pithy rind, filled with sweet, aromatic pulp, juice and seeds.

Passionfruit vines climb up any support, readily and rapidly, and they climb as high as the support will allow.

Passionfruit Varieties, Tropical Passionfruit

There are two main passionfruit varieties.
(Plus a bunch of lesser known passionfruits and related granadillas.)

Passiflora edulis is the purple passionfruit.
Passiflora edulis f. flavicarpa is the golden passionfruit , also called tropical passionfruit.

The purple passionfruit is a native of Brazil and is the sweeter of the two.
Nobody knows where the tropical passionfruit origi nated. The tropical passionfruit is slightly bigger and slightly more acidic.

Commercial growers in cooler climates often use hybrid varieties of the purple and golden passionfruit. That way they get a plant with large fruit that tolerates cooler weather.
The hybrids have all kinds of fancy names, SuperSweet, Lacey, Purple Gold etc.

The variety Panama confuses people, because it can be purple. However, Panama is a true tropical passionfruit of the type flavicarpa (which is usually golden). It is also called purple flavicarpa or Panama Red. Even though it seems to be a mix, it is not a hybrid!

If you live in a truly tropical climate you are obviously best of with a flavicarpa variety. They don’t call them tropical passionfruit for no reason.

In a climate with cooler winters you want a purple passionfruit (P. edulis) or even a hybrid cultivar.

My climate is tropical and I grow the tropical kind, both golden and purple flavicarpa (i.e. Panama red).

What Do Passionfruits Like And Dislike?

Like all fast growing plants passionfruit needs a lot of nutrients. That lush green foliage has to come from somewhere, it can not materialise out of nothing. So passionfruit vines need fertile soils, probably additional fertiliser, and they appreciate all the compost and mulch you can spare.

They also need full sun, a warm climate, and protection from wind. A sunny, sheltered site in a frost free climate is ideal. There are some purple varieties that can handle the odd very light frost. And sometimes, even though the top of a vine is killed by frost, the roots reshoot. However, the warmer the climate, the easier it is to grow passionfruit.

Passionfruit need something to climb over. A fence, a water tank, a trellis, anything will do. Watch where you plant them, because they will be up in the crown of a nearby tree before you know.

Passionfruit plants have a vulnerable root system. A healthy soil, teeming with worms and microbes and lots of organic matter is your best bet. If your soil is poor you will get problems with wilt diseases, root rot and nematodes. Heavy clay soils also cause problems with rot diseases.

Watering: The root system of a passionfruit vine is small for the size of the plant it has to sustain. Especially while a passionfruit is fruiting it needs a lot of water. It needs a very regular water supply at all times.
However, passionfruit can’t handle waterlogged soil. Make sure your site is free draining.

Growing Passionfruit Seeds

If I can grow something from seed I will. If I can grow something from the seed of store bought fruit, even better. Why spend money on a nursery plant if you don’t need to?

Growing passionfruit seeds is not hard. The seed just needs to be fresh. For some reason old seed takes a lot longer to germinate. So buy some nice passionfruit, separate half a dozen seeds from the pulp, and plant them as soon as possible. They take about ten to twenty days to germinate.

If you buy your seed then it’s likely older, so be prepared to wait. Old passionfruit seeds can take months to germinate. The best way seems to be to just put them in the garden and leave them be, and eventually they come up. Or not.

There are some tricks like soaking the seeds in warm water first, and some people swear by vinegar. Others report their acidic soil seems to do the job.
I believe in fresh seed. Whenever I used fresh seed it came up without problems.

Reasons Not To Grow Passionfruit From Seed

Seeds of hybrid varieties do not grow true to type. If you live in a cooler climate the passionfruit you buy may be a hybrid variety. If you grow that seed you don’t know what kind of fruit you will get. It will be nothing like the parent plant and probably not very nice.

Find out what the fruit is that you buy, or buy the seed so you know what you are planting, or even buy a plant from a nursery.

Another reason for not growing passionfruit from seed is the high susceptibility of the purple varieties and the hybrids to the root disease Fusarium wilt. Luckily, resistant root stocks exist (flavicarpa varieties).
If Fusarium wilt is a problem in your soil, and if you need to grow susceptible varieties because of your cool climate, then you may want to invest in a grafted plant from a nursery.

Ah, it’s nice to live in the true tropics. All tropical passionfruits are reasonably resistant to Fusarium wilt and they are also more resistant to nematodes, another problem when growing passionfruit.

Planting Passionfruit Vines

You can plant out your seedlings when they are about eight inches high (20 cm). If you wait too long and they are much bigger than that, prune them back as you plant them out. It helps reduce moisture loss while the root system settles in.

Make sure that whatever support you have in mind is strong enough for the vine. They do get huge and heavy pretty quickly and need something sturdy.

Also be aware that a vigorously growing passionfruit will climb over any- and everything it can reach and can quickly smother plants. Make your own life easier by growing passionfruit away from other shrubs and trees.

(Note to self: I should heed that advice myself.)

Be careful to disturb the roots as little as possible. Dig a big enough hole, at least twice as big as the root ball, and ideally mix the soil with compost before you back fill. Then mulch thickly around the plant.

In the early days you may have to train your vine up the support by carefully tying it.

But it will quickly get the message. As soon as there is something for the little tendrils to grab hold of, say the first wire on your trellis, it will climb on its own.

Feeding And Watering Passionfruit Vines

Yep, plenty of both, please.

Passionfruit needs a steady supply of both water and nutrients.

Of course, as always, don’t overdo it. Overwatering can lead to root problems. Make sure you don’t have water puddling or not draining away.

Overfeeding can also lead to problems. Too much nitrogen (most commercial fertilisers are heavy on nitrogen) will lead to lots of soft green leaves, attractive to all sorts of insects and diseases, but you get little fruit.

So, lots of compost, lots of mulch, and the odd sprinkle of a balanced, organic, slow release fertiliser.

Pollination Of Passionfruit

Now here is an issue that I only became aware of when readers started asking me about it.
Or rather, asking why their healthy and profusely flowering passionfruit vines did not set any fruit.
Or why the fruit was small and hollow rather than filled with delicious, juicy pulp.

There are several possible reasons for this:

  • Even though the purple passionfruit is self-fruitful (meaning a flower can be pollinated with its own pollen) wind pollination does not work with passionfruit. The pollen is too sticky to be moved by wind.
    Passionfruit flowers rely exclusively on bees for pollination. No bees, no fruit.
    You can help your passionfruit by planting plenty of herbs and flowers in your garden that attract bees.
  • While purple passionfruit is self-fruitful, the yellow passionfruit is mostly self-incompatible and needs to be cross pollinated with another cultivar.
    So if yours is only the passionfruit vine near and far, you need to plant a second vine of a different cultivar.
  • The weather! Pollination works best in warm temperatures and humid conditions. If the air is too dry, or it is too hot or too cold, and also during torrential rains, pollination will be ineffective.

Since I grow several varieties of passionfruit in my garden, I never had a problem with pollination. Sure, I did notice that there were times when I had no fruit despite having many flowers. I contributed it (correctly) to the weather/temperatures and didn’t worry about it, since I knew that sooner or later I would be showered with passionfruit.

How Long Does Passionfruit Take To Fruit?

That depends on several factors. The tropical varieties fruit quicker than the purple passionfruit.

Any passionfruit will reach maturity sooner if growing in a warmer climate.

A passionfruit vine planted in spring fruits sooner than a passionfruit planted in autumn.

In ideal conditions (early spring planting in the tropics) you can get fruit within six months.
Autumn planting in a cooler climate means you may have to wait for over 12 months.

When To Harvest Passionfruit?

That’s what I love best about growing passionfruit. You don’t need to worry about harvesting them. When they are ready they’ll drop. Dropping on the ground does not hurt them the least bit, they will neither rot nor will they get eaten by insects, birds or anything else. (Ok, possibly the neighbour’s kids.)
Just collect your passionfruit as often as you feel like it.

When one of my passionfruit vines is in peak production I usually do it twice a day. My vines are very productive.
At other times I will pick up my red passionfruit daily. It has a much thinner skin and in my warm and humid climate I find it goes moldy on the inside unless I put it in the fridge straight away.

My yellow passionfruits do not mind lying on the ground in the sun for a few days, and then sitting on the kitchen bench for weeks. They shrivel up and look awful, but they are still juicy and delicious inside.

Pruning Passionfruit

Pruning passionfruit is essential.

Well, usually it is. I don’t always do it. Some of my passionfruit vines raced up into some huge trees and I can’t get to them. So I just let them be.

Anyway, most people grow passionfruit on much smaller structures, like fences or trellises. If you don’t prune your passionfruit you end up up with a thick, tangled mess of dead wood, and a plant that has lots of problems with fungal diseases.

Don’t be shy, take your cutters to it. In the tropics you can prune a passionfruit as soon as it has finished fruiting. In cooler climates prune passionfruit in early spring.

Cut out everything that is dead or weak, trim healthy branches by about a third, and even fully remove some of them. You have to keep the plant within bounds, you need to make sure that some air can circulate through the foliage, and you want to stimulate vigorous new growth. Passionfruit only sets fruit on new growth.

If your passionfruit is growing where it shouldn’t, or threatening to smother other plants, you can of course trim those shoots at any time.

How Long Does A Passionfruit Vine Live?

I already mentioned it, growing passionfruit can be tricky because they are very susceptible to all sorts of root problems. Usually the plants are not all that long lived, five to seven years is a long life for a passionfruit vine.

Commercial passionfruit growers work on a life span of three years for their passionfruit vines. However, a well tended, well fed vine in a good location in healthy soil may live a lot longer.

I find that after three years the productivity of a vine definitely decreases, so I don’t plan for them to live any longer than that. I simply start one or two new plants every other year. I’m lucky enough to have the space to do so.

If you don’t have that space you will need to watch your passionfruit carefully, so that if you notice problems you can replant in time.

Don’t be too disheartened if your healthy and productive vine after a few years suddenly dies. I’m afraid that passionfruit have a bad habit of doing just that.

If you follow permaculture design principles in your gardening methods, then your soil is improving all the time, and the next passionfruit will grow better and live longer.

One of the few good sativa-dominant OG strains, it is very lemony and piney with some gas and skunk notes.

It is very light piney tasting with no coughing. The high is very nice being a sativa dominant strain, but 19% average is average to me. I feel medicinal qualities in the strain that are different and relaxing indica elements. Worth 70 a quarter to me 😀 It has an it factor others don’t have

So picked up a gram from Select @ 89% / 94% total. Absolutely love it (and I’m mostly an indica smoker). Lends the best of both worlds. Not racy like some sativa or sativa dominant strains can be. Mentally a fun time, relaxing and one of the few strains that gets me laughing. It’s great by itself and imo, better when crossed with a decent indica. Like northern lights or Mendo, etc. One of my new top 5 strains at the moment.
