Determining if a marijuana seed is of high quality is dependent upon several different factors. Seeds that produce the highest quality buds must fully mature before they’re harvested. They also must be stored in a cool, dry place so they do not acquire mold or pick up any harmful pathogens. As a rule, seeds should be used within 16 months or frozen to be used in the future.
The genetic makeup of a plant is known as its genotype, which essentially serves as a blueprint for its growth. A plant’s genotype allows for a range of various physical possibilities, all of which are dependent upon the external environment. The physical appearance of a plant is known as the phenotype. A plant’s phenotype includes smell, shape, color, and production of resin, all of which are influenced by the environment.
What Makes a Quality Seed High Quality?
If you’re planning to add Fruity Pebbles to your ganja garden, there are seeds available. They won’t cost you $1000, but they will run you a pretty penny. There’s also always the option of cutting a clone or two if you’re lucky enough to find them.
Quality cannabis doesn’t come cheap. And just like a bottle of fine wine, some marijuana strains are more expensive than others. High-quality cannabis has humble beginnings as a high-quality seed.
While Oracle certainly hasn’t lived up to what it was once purported to be, seeds still don’t come cheap. One online seed shop has 10 Oracle seeds listed for over $600.
Named for its four parents—three distinct landrace strains hailing from Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan, plus the legendary Skunk #1 —Four Way is one of the most pungent strains of all time, while also delivering a potent cannabinoid profile with up to 20% THC and 2% CBD. Predominantly indica with creeping sedative effects, this beloved but elusive strain retains the spicy, hashy taste and aroma of its exotic parentage, plus notes of pure stinky skunk.
But anyway, putting all that unpleasantness aside, I recently indulged in a pleasant little thought experiment by asking some of the world’s leading cannabis connoisseurs two questions:
The history of the Chemdog line of cannabis strains is long, convoluted, and fascinating , with an origin story that dates back to bag seed salvaged from an ounce of primo bud sold on a Grateful Dead tour back in 1991. Perhaps most famous for its incredibly potent progeny—including Sour Diesel , OG Kush , and their many variants and offspring—the original Chemdog varietal (now known as Chemdog 91) remains among the most potent, flavorful, and sought after cannabis cuts of all time. Known for its earthy, skunky, diesel aroma and euphoric high, it’s often imitated, but rarely located these days.
We’ve heard tales of Sweet Tooth’s availability at these shops.
As any cannabis enthusiast in California can attest, there’s no shortage of OG Kush crosses on the market, but one of the oldest and best has largely slipped off the radar. And that’s a shame, because Bubba OG—a hybrid of Pre-98 Bubba Kush and Ghost OG from Canadian breeders Dr. Greenthumb Seeds—delivers the former’s flavor and the latter’s potency, a truly winning combo. BOG (as it’s known to those who remember) can work wonders for chronic pain, muscle spasms, nausea, and insomnia.
Which raises two very significant questions worth addressing before you set off on your rare cannabis quest: Which hard to find strains are worth the effort? And how will you know it’s really the “real deal” once you find it?
I n our modern digitally connected world, pretty much everything rare and prized is also paradoxically readily available—at least if you have the means.
Here’s another paradox: Anyone seeking out obscure cannabis strains of the distant past—far flung exotic landraces that never made a commercial impact to begin with, or the hottest new hybrids that haven’t yet hit the commercial market—will like have better luck dusting off their old underground dealer rolodex and chasing after leads and clues like some kind of dank detective than they will driving over to their friendly local cannabis store.
Rare Dankness’s goal is to provide the highest quality genetics to the Medical Marijuana community. The seedbank believe that education is key to eventual legalization and that is why they offer as much information as possible alongside each of their strains.
Their work is not intended to replicate mother plants but to compliment the masterful genetics that they have sourced by breeding with superior males.
Rare Dankness’ ultimate goal is to provide the highest quality genetics from the very best sources directly to the cannabis community, especially those who use marijuana for medicinal purposes.
While the original Rare Dankness is based in Colorado and only breeds and sells their seeds in Colorado, they have established a sister company – RD Genetics who are based in Europe. The seeds that are created by RD Genetics are produced in local gardens in Spain. This is how Rare Dankness have infiltrated the European market, where there reputation continues to grow.
Rare Dankness’ current library of strains contain genetics that span thirty years of cultivation and represent the finest strains from history.
Through a global network of friends, Rare Dankness has been able to source some of the most sought after and rare genetics available on the market today.
While many of the strains in Rare Dankness library receive plenty of customer attention, there are some truly exceptional varieties that have becoming exceedingly popular. Their Midas Regular is a large yielding variety that has giant nugs and a phenomenal aroma and flavour, while their Moonshine Haze packs a fruity punch and can help with creativity and productiveness.
