Damn good strain, all that needs to be said. I smoked this strain in early 70's. Don't recall it being this good. 2 phenos though. Second phenol takes for ever to finish and grows like indica. I named this phenol Jungle Bush. 4 footer easy and the same in diameter. Both phenols have huge harvests. Jungle bush produced over 4ozs cured! Other phenol over 3ozs. cured. this comment

Tha buds on this strain where very fluffy and i could not possibly think that this strain would be any good i even want to say that this particular seeds/stain became mutated, floweing time was hard to pinpoint since this strain really streched!

But i continued to finish harvestin and dry n cure total flowering time was about 100 days.

Drying time was about 3 days jared and cure after.

After drying the bud resembled something my dad used to smoke and as a kid rolled up from time to time.

I would see in an old hightimes magazine, so i knew i was on to something!

Yeilds where really insane and the smoke is really fire.

Taste:10 smothest smoke ever!

Aroma: 10 smells of spice

High: 10 you will be compleatly shit faced! Memory loos so forgive my spelling.

All together i would say its 9.5 outta 10 this comment
