Now this is where most of us hang these days.
Love that the smell of Girl Scout Cookies, or the headrush that is combined with total body relaxation of Fat Banana. Welcome to the wonders of hybrids.
By selectively crossbreeding Sativa and Indica strains breeders have created amazing new strains. Each one with his own unique properties, flavors and growth patterns.
Pollinating these new hybrid strains with the auto-flowering Ruderalis created the very popular auto-flowering strains that newbies love to grow.
Breeders have also taken specific traits that they loved and crossbred them to get better yields on popular strains – Critical Kush for example gives great yields while still giving the same loved effects of OG Kush.

Effects are powerful, happy, cerebral high. Fruity sweet, earthy taste.

Over 20% THC content with a fast high and creative, comfortable effect.
