WHITE BUFFALO SEED COLLECTIVE
Our research gardens are based in the West coast of B.C. and the Praries of Canada at latitudes from 49-54° North. Our aim is very simple: produce seeds well suited to growing plants that finish to perfection in Northern climates, with an emphasis on vigor, mold resistance, and therapeutic qualities. We offer true male/female seed produced in a natural way on plants raised in a biological "ideal soil" mix (see The Ideal Soil book).
The mother of the G-Warp is called C-Warp, a local cutting (a Timewarp hyrid named after C. - the guy who found her) that is widely grown in B.C. at the moment. Growers appreciate her ease of growth, mold and mildew resistance, early September finish, and easy harvest. Our Experience is that C-Warp grown in full sun in an Ideal Soil Mix can put out some pretty decent flowers; maybe not the most potent, but pretty decent for an early yielder. The bouquet and flavor are somewhat reminiscent of dried meyer lemon peel, cured meat and amber. Some G-Warps have a mango aroma. Most folks who have sampled the C-Warp, done properly, seem to appreciate her flavor and balanced effect. She was pollinated by a Guerilla Gold #5 male selected from a pool of 65 seedlings. The GG#5 male was a large and vigorous pheno with a nice sweet skunky aroma, and a greasy stemrub that our Spidey senses said would be a good foundational stud in some outdoor hybrids and their future breedings. G-Warp seedlings finish in the latter half of September (at 50°N) for the most part. A large number of these will have semi-auto tendencies when grown from cutting. Some G-Warp cuttings may need to be vegged to size. The G-Warp survived the extremely wet summer on the coast of Wales in 2012 and produced mold free flowers of indoor rivalry. Great strain for a first time grower.
The mother of the Cheemo the Montreal Chemo is a very medicinal plant of unknown origin that has been around Quebec for at least a decade. She was orginally brought out to Quebec from B.C. by a hippy oldtimer. The Montreal Chemo is not related to the U.B.C. Chemo, she's a wider leafed plant that grows on a strong frame carrying solid chunky nugs of old school goodness. Her bouquet is subtle, and reminicent of herbal hashiness with a tinge of Granny Smith apples, lemongrass, and amber. We've trialed the Montreal Chemo a couple seasons outside at 49°N, and she is needing until early November to finish at that latitude in a super good year. So, the goal was to pollinate her with the GG#5, and hope to find some phenos that will finish completely by early October up here, but I think they will really kick it at more Southerly latitudes like 40-46°. These were tested on the coast of Wales in the extremely wet summer of 2012 and passed with flying colours.
The mother of Cowichan Gold, the Nepwarp (Timewarp x Nepali) is a great plant we found that almost finishes to perfection on South Vancouver Island, not quite but almost. The Nepwarp has a great flavour: a mix of orange peel, leather and brandy and a strong, well balanced high. She is well liked by all who have met her so far. She makes great bubble hash, and has good trichome coverage on the leaf. She is pretty mold resistant until the October rains come, similar to the Timewarp but still attention needs to be paid because the buds can get thick, especially when in well irrigated mega pots in full-sun spots. The mother of the Nepwarp can be pm susceptible like the Timewarp in a poor season and/or in a poor spot, these are plants recommended more for good full sun spots. The GG#5 in the mix should bring these big seedlings in the mid-Sept to mid-Oct range at 49 degrees, with most plants finishing by the first week of October. Support for the branches is recommended, especially from cutting and especially in windy areas, because the buds can get heavy enough to bring the whole plant down. Could be a great early strain at 40-45 degrees latitude. Should be normal plants for the most part from cutting, except the odd pheno might be semi-auto especially at more southerly latitudes.
The legendary Texada Timewarp, aka Twister, has been around in cutting form since 1978, and is a great full season plant in the 48-52 degrees latitude range. She is one of the first plants to produce real buds in the area. Her aroma is of licorice, leather and citrus and her effect is hearty, balanced and long lasting. She has a large, well-branched frame running with buds so there is potential to yield well in full sun spots, in big holes. With the vigorous GG#5 male in the equation I would not be surprised to see some big phenos, 8-10 feet or more. Timewarp finishes early October at 50 degrees latitude, the GG#5 in the equation should put these seedlings in the mid-late Sept range at 50 degrees or a bit earlier at lower latitudes. Clean up the shlarfy bottoms for best results. We can't predict how these will act at lower latitudes since Timewarp acts like a veg to size plant at 45 degrees latitude; they should grow normal from seed so long as they aren't root bound but I'd imagine from cutting lots will be semi-auto in the lower latitudes. Survived the super wet summer of 2012 on the coast of Wales with no mold.
The Twig is a semi-auto cutting from our good friends at Trifecta Seed, from an open pollinated line of Super Skunk x (Mighty Mite x Afghan), using the same father line (Early Bramble) that originally sired the Guerilla Gold but instead pollinating a local Super Skunk cutting (Coastal BC). Genetically speaking these seeds will be [(Early Gold x (Mighty Mite x Afghan)] x [Super Skunk x (Mighty Mite x Afghan)]. The Twig cutting flowers in around 10-11 weeks from the time it is put outside. The Twig has a looser bud structure with thin calyxes so it has decent mold resistance for an early type. She smells of peach schnapps and resin, with hints of musk and sandlewood. The high is clear, up and energizing, motivating, not crunchy at all. Not the strongest weed ever but pretty good for a super early plant, happy weed that promotes a nice, warm vibe. The GG#5 should help chunk out the buds and bring the yields up. She has great frost coverage even on the leaf and is a pretty good plant for making bubble. Best guess atm is these seedlings will finish in the mid August to mid Sept range for the most part with the odd pheno going a little longer. From clone a large % should be semi-auto. Some seedlings are being tested atm, looking vigorous and we are seeing a small percentage are fully auto. Coastal gold is our earliest and lowest yielding strain.
