“Club thumbs” are ok too…on plants. I kind of have club digits, why I’m not much of a texter, I have trouble enough with a regular keyboard.

Smokin’ like a Jamaican…jah mon.

Hello Haze lovers!

Well, all the plants are down and drying / dried now..

I have been smoking the first of these plants for a week now and also some of the other buds, which are dry but uncured.

The first pheno was a one-off (from my selection, anyway) very early pearl. It is a lovely smoke.
All of the buds have a similar, Earthy taste to them, maybe a bit peppery but EP girl also had a very juicy fruity flavour too. A lovely smoke.
Some of the others have slight fruity undertones as well. The smoke is nice enough tasting. There is no new-skool potent smells, like mangoes or pineapples, etc...

There is a neutral aroma to these plants, either when growing or smoking but when drying they smell very nice. It is an old school aroma of - well, weed, I guess!!

The smoke is not too light. It is satisfying. You can feel the smoke and enjoy the joint or pipe and it tastes good, like weed, despite the slightly neutral aroma, it is not bland at all.

The smoke smell is of weed. You can't pretend you are smoking anything else (despite what people would lead you to believe.) It is just wishful thinking...

The buds look is a little darker and glistening with a good covering of tiny resin glands. Some of the buds have a commercial, skunk look about them, others are fluffier. All are rounded and skunky shaped.

I got a great yield. Not sure what yet but it fills 2 carrier bags!

And so to the high...

So first of, if anyone has grown normal skunk/haze then this is very similar. It has a bit more indica about it. The high is slightly less cerebral.

It is still very clear and energetic and some of the phenos have a distinctly happy vibe to them. Not quite a euphoria but a very very good, laid-back mood. I'll bet with a good long cure that this feeling is greatly enhanced as it seems to be rising each time I smoke the herb.
I can't feel any paranoia, like you get with thai, sometimes. The high is quite giggly/happy. You can get into "story in your head" mode when on a nice log walk and you feel like it is the best day in ages. That the weather is just perfect and that the view is spectacular, just because of the great, relaxed mood this herb puts you in.
You will not normally have sleepy time with this herb, unless you are already a little tired, in which case you will drift off nicely, if you dare to lie down and relax a little too much.

There is some indica in the mix. It is not quite as cerebral an effect as normal skunk/haze, as I have stated. The mood is happy and giggly but not like fits of uncontrollable laughter and madness that you can get with a good 'normal' skunk/haze. It is very much like Shanti puts it...a great compromise between the indica and sativa sides of the plant.

In summery, this is a tasty, neutral smelling herb which yields well but is a little bit harder to grow. It is quick to start and has a very quick finish, too. Most plants are ready within 9 weeks, with 1 or 2 going a week longer.
It is resinous but not sticky and the buds are more like large nugs than colas. This means that very little was lost to rot.
The smell is peppery/earthy with mixed fruit undertones.
The taste is old-skool pot.
The high is clear and social. A good positive vibe and lots of energy. There is not much in the legs and knees.
Very much a sativa, there is, none-the-less and compromise to the indica side on this strain but it is a good compromise. It is a little less high but finishes at the beginning of October so a fair swap, I would say. At least for those Haze lovers who are growing outdoors but there is still indica in there, somewhere - a little less buzz and a little more comfort.
The strength (from what I can tell so far.. there is much curing left to do) is good. It is not at the Super Silver Haze level but no one will complain about smoking these buds.
A little bit "old-skool" but very practical compared to some 50% haze hybrids.
If you are growing outdoors and your season is a little short then it is this or Early Haze. Give it a go.

Thanks Weedtrunk, that's real kind of you.

I will pop over to say hello on your intro thread, for sure.

Any problems you are having I would be happy to throw in my tuppence worth - growing should be easy - not rocket science, so together and with support from other growers on this forum, we should do OK.

You can also PM me if you like.

Grover

Thanks Grover much appreciated dude.

Quick question will you be making hash or oil with the trim ? I love hash myself i have been reading some of your stuff and you was saying indica was for hash making a sativa is for smoking the flowers, wouldn't that be wasteful to grow a indica and to hash it all ? I 100% agree with you i think smoking indica can be a bit to much sometimes but there's always a time and place, i love the head highs of the sativa during the day and a hard hitting body stoned indica at night with a few pipes of hash on the side

So i think there is always a place in my grow for a indica but leaning more towards the sativa side of things obviously very hard to get a true sativa as most strains are crossed between the both. What would you suggest for someone of my experience ?

Peace and thanks again.

I make hash with my trim. It is always a greatly appreciated product. First dry sieve and then ice/bubble hash. I don't make oil as I much prefer hash/charas thang. Each to his own, though.
The indica/sativa thing is a bit of a simplification because there are sativas out there that were selected for hashish making, such as the Himalayans but not too many. Flower quality is not important at all with hash making, just how much resin.
It's never a waste to grow an indica just for hash. My brother and I have had great success hashing up outdoor indicas. It's the only real success you can have with outdoor plants where we live!

If you want a gentle introduction to the sativa side then try Critical Haze or Master Kaze and find one of the longer flowering phenotypes. Both lines have fantastic haze-leaning plants to be enjoyed. Superb flavours and highs and not as hard to grow as the 50% hazes at all. I am continually impressed with those 2 lines above almost all others. Every time I grow them.

I am completely with you in that there is a place for all sides of the smoking spectrum (indica, sativa, hash) and I think I will make an effort to get back into a bedtime Kush joint.

OK, final assessment -

Except for 1 tiny plant (which had about 1/2 an ounce on it..) this was some of the dullest marijuana I've ever smoked.

I wish I hadn't recommended anyone to plant these seeds. Sorry if you have on my say-so.

Absolute dishwater.
This is the 2nd worst marijuana I've grown this year.

I thought it would be so much better than it turned out.

Characterless. Nobody wanted ANY of it. NOBODY. I literally couldn't give it away!!


Sorry.
