I know man but sometimes just like in x files the truth is elsewhereThere is a lot of skunk genetics in Devil. 1/4 skunk?
G `day 59 LP aka AT .Nevil said the PNW Hashplant crossed with NL1 , then using an F2 Male backcrossed to the PNW Mom, was the most potent, frostiest weed he ever saw, or smoked. He called and sold this cross/backcross.. as Hashplant. This is where Skelly/Puck/Cuddlefish came from.
Black Domina was already out in 95.
If you list NF as any sort of resource or authortiy, i suggest reading the history of Skunk 1. Nobody is pulling actual skunk terps out of skunk #1. Afghanis have always been where "skunk bud" is from. Pretty well known, and they didnt hit the scene till late-mid 70's. Mostly 78.Skelly, also known as the PUCK cut came from Nevils breeding program.
The Pacific Northwest Hashplant cut was taken to Holland, and also Northern Lights #1.
Skelly is Nevils cross of
PNW Hashplant x NL1. Then Nevil used the F2 MALE from the F1 cross, and bred it back to the clone mother PNW HP. F2 Male... This created what Nevil sold as Hashplant. Cuddlefish HP is also from the same 80's stock.
He also sold the F1, but didn't have a name that I recall. I bought all of those original genetics in the 80s, but lost all of it to the feds in 1997. I also ordered from SSSC, Cultivators Choice, and a couple others.
Best stuff I ever saw still to this day is a Haze/NL5 x Hashplant/SSSC Sk1 that I got given to me in 1992 from a friend. Done in 42-49 days, but was 1st week of November outside.
Coastal Seeds sells the Puck x Original NL1. Called PUCK YEAH.
The Skunk DD VA uses is from Super Sativa Seed Club from the 80s, and are the genetics taken to Holland.
The Nature Farm Genetics also has this crossed to his Sk18. Called Red Eye Skunk. This shit is KILLER to breed with, as is the Sk18. SSSC Sk has Thai in it, a where the Sk18 has the genes of the Skunk, before Thai was introduced. SSSC Skunk 1 is Mex/Thai/Columbian/Mazar. Sk18 is Columbian/Mexican/Mazar.
TNF also gave Coastal/Bob Hemphill the 95 Black Domina cut that won 2018 Humboldt. Winner best Indica.
TNF also gave Coastal the Red Lebanese cut, and some other genetics.
Duke Diamond VA won Breeder of the Year at 2018 Emerald Cup.
Lovely looking buds, Have you grown Ortega english? I have both growing alongside one another i find the only way to tell them apart is ortega has deep purple stems other than that i would say they're identical. Haven't grown enough to work out wether ortega is a P1 or Damsire in the line.Erdbeer grown oudoors in the uk
No i have not mate although ive had my eye out on ortega since shanti re released it.Lovely looking buds, Have you grown Ortega english?

The interesting synchronicity with this is, Many of the canadians who had Ortega or (Mikado) same thing, ended up migrating to switzerland. The Ortega/NL line from that period is also responsible for "strawberry cough" Leads me to believe the apple doesn't fall to far from the tree.
I have a erdbeer IBL with no PT, mine has violet ruby red stems. They're so similar it creeps me out - sort of like identical twins who are different shades of color.No i have not mate although ive had my eye out on ortega since shanti re released it.
This particular girl had quite redish purple stems from the off and went on to develop the colours in the pics,
I think maybe your theories could be right
I would like to note that N also said the initial NLxHaze pairings caused people to shit their pants. In other words, the strongest.
While I love and covet a LOT of what N handled, I don't give him any more credit than many others whose hands also touched the ancestors of what we grow.
He had the guts, the means, and the determination.
I personally don't think that made him the best grower or breeder.
I know, "heretic!"
