Huh? No one I knew dried their weed outside in the sun in California. Waaaay too easy for people to smell it and get it ripped off; IT REEKS! Most growers cut plants at the base and hung them upside down in their garage. Many still do that here today. I never sun dried any weed myself. I slow cure my buds at cooler temps. I dispense with the upside down hanging plant process and cut my buds to length and dry them flat in cardboard boxes, turning them every day. Once dry to the touch, I put them in paper bags and cure them for at least a month, usually longer.

All the Oaxacan that I saw and smoked in Cali was green. The only Mexican gold that I ever saw (other than what had been sprayed and tested positive for Paraquat) was gold that came from around Acapulco in Guerrero. I never saw any Oaxacan Highland Gold, as it seems to be called now, even when I was in Oaxaca, Mexico in the 70s.

Oh I don't know, in San Diego back in the mid to late sixties, we had "gold" of several different varieties from Mexico and Columbia. Yes, gold from Oaxaca too. I understand some plants were girded as a way of killing the plant and essentially curing in the sun with plant still standing, saving a step. Only problem is back then there was no way to certify anything. God knows how much of this bricked shit was sold under a "branded" name and what was it really? Seed was got from bags and people who sold seed were vagabonds and dubious at best. Everything done with a nod and a wink. Trust ha! Seeds from where? Right. Vague memories from years ago... What I know for certain is recounting memories from 30-40 years ago is a slippery slope. And today, I am confident as to where I get my seed. Happy days braddahs!

Well, I put higher confidence in seed sources in bag weed in the 70s/80s than from any but a very few seed companies today. Where did the seed companies get their strains from and are they legit? Also where did those modern seed breeder genetics originate from? Mysteries galore. Like the source of the several dozen OG Kush strains out there calling themselves OG. The dealers in the 60s had far less to gain from where a bag of weed came from than seed peddlers today. And in the end, most Mexican weed was from Oaxaca, Guerrero, or Michaoacan and most Colombian was from the mountains (Santa Marta) or the northern Atlantic lowlands (bricked red/brown and gold). Some came in from west Colombia, which was green, and there was punta roja and punto rojo from the west mountains. Thai sticks were obviously from SE Asia, mainly Thailand. Black gooey ganja was from South India. No doubt about it. The hashish pressed into the Star of David was from... you guessed it! Israel. Bright green temple balls and fingers were from Nepal. Red and blonde hashish was from Lebanon.

As for memory, I do not need to recall the details. I wrote everything down then about the source weed when I added seeds to my land race seed collection sorted into envelopes and frozen in a plastic case. Date, price paid, where gotten, where said to be from, character of the buds and quality of the high, how seedy, and I rated the buzz factor. I also noted the germination %, how it grows and the dates grown for each seed packet over the years.

I also lived in Sandy Eggo in the later 1980s, on Mission Beach and in Del Cerro. I graduated from SDSU. The beach scene there and in LA was a lot different than the weed scene in NorCal at that time. Different worlds. I loved the surf music in PB though, and the beach. I do not miss the traffic, smog, and mob scene there through. I went back to Mission Beach a few years ago and it is all quiet and tame. Family friendly. They banned alcohol on Mission Beach and that was that. The party was over. It had moved up to Solana Beach and Encinitas then. Back in the day my brother was living out of his car on Cardiff Beach at the campground. That had been taken over by a surf camp for kids last time I was there. The waves were glowing at night on that trip though. No ono believes that either... even there and then. Bright green crashing waves. No LSD required.

Fearless, we'd surf at night in the phosphorescense. It was eerie sitting out there in the glow. Those were the daze brah...

is a stamp that has been seen from time to time in Europe in the 80s and 90s... it's not produced in Israel but in Morocco... hashish with f stamp star of David is a cheap Moroccan hash of commercial grade, made for profit... hence the name and stamp

The 1979 Romulan cut is still alive.

Coastal Seeds has the 79 Romulan clone mother x NL1 called UFO. I got 6 packs of them.

Swami has The ONE, and Blue Orca which are from 83.
PNW Hashplant is early 80s.

Skelly Hashplant is 1989.

Swami has the 85 cut of RKS
Original NL5 is from early 80s. And is Indonesian, contrary to popular belief, and is still alive.
NOOF cut of NL5 from 89. NOOF has been crossed with an Afghan.
NL5 seeds from Sensi, or anyplace else are not really NL5, but a Hybrid. NL5 is Sativa.
