Sirius Black is a pure Indica weed. The Oregon Breeders Group created this potent member of the kush family, which is a delightful strain of cannabis with a strong smell and taste of ruby red grapes.
Novices weed users should aim for small quantities initially to avoid massive couch-lock. However, it’s overwhelmingly strong sedative characteristics make it an ideal sedative for insomniacs.
As the name suggests, the leaves and buds of Sirius Black are a dark, magical purple, reminiscent of deadly nightshade flowers. We recommend topping them off early and growing them in a warm, humid environment. Sirius Black responds well to the SoG (Sea of Green) method if growing indoors.

Take a step back in time to the counterculture of the sixties with Acapulco Gold, a legendary strain with a smooth, uplifting stone that explains why it has stood the test of time.

With its clean-cut name reminiscent of the cookies sold by small American scouts, this variety of cannabis is very popular in the USA With a typical THC content of 28%, the Girl Scout Cookies has retained the physical characteristics of OG Kush, and the heady scent of Durban Poison. This hybrid is impressively strong and flowers in only 67 days. Small wonder it formed the base for the Kurupt’s Moonrock.
Girl Scout Cookies is an Indica-dominant strain. This means that it responds well to training methods such as Sea of Green (SoG), which enables earlier harvesting and increased yields.

If you want to grow lots of weed with lovely big buds, Big Bud is the answer.
Big Bud is an undemanding plant, although it isn’t the quickest, taking about 11-12 weeks to reach harvest, and prefers a dry Mediterranean climate if grown outside. However, good things come to those who wait. Big Bud is very popular with commercial growers because of the incomparable number of huge buds.

Big Bud lifts your spirits and induces feelings of happiness and euphoria. It is Indica-dominant so enables a cerebral high while feeling completely relaxed – in fact, you might feel very drowsy after smoking Big Bud! You will love the earthy and pine flavours and spicy aromas of this variety.
Skywalker is a hybrid of a female Mazar plant and a male Blueberry; the intention was to create one of the finest Indicas in the world, and we think the developers succeeded. The distinctive Blueberry taste and aroma subtly combine in this hybrid with the vigour and yield of Mazar. Disappointing Blueberry characteristics such as ‘curly leaves’ and slow initial growth have vanquished, while the lovely taste and aroma (fruity and fresh) and the quality of the “high” remain. Yields of up to 400 gr / m2 can be expected when under optimal conditions.
Skywalker OG is classed as easy to grow, partly because it is very resistant to diseases and pests.

This weed holds the record for the most concentrated THC variety. It was presented at the Cannabis Cup by Next Harvest with a THC level of 32.13%. Its genetic origin is mysterious, but some believe that it derives from a cross between varieties of Thai and Nepalese Sativa. It is an Indica-dominant hybrid that has a very pronounced taste and smell. Chemdawg was used to create Sour Diesel, a popular strain that can be found in any Amsterdam coffee shop.
Chemdawg is famously challenging to grow, so we advise plenty of experience before giving it a go. Grown indoors, you can expect yields of 28 ounces per square metre, which are above average. Grown outdoors, each plant can garner 28 ounces of premium bud.
