    Anyone Run Highland Mex x BB?

    Has anyone had a chance to grow out some of this cross??? Sounds interesting- Blueberry back to it's roots!

    Hmmm. Perhaps this should have been posted to the DJ Short/Legends forum?

    If these hit SBay looks like me running it...

    There is a thread in the DJ/Legend forum that deals with searching for the Blueberry Sativa plant which is a major building block for DJ's inspired works. Highland mex is a broad geographic area- Oaxaca, Acapulco and various highland Golds could be blended together. I was considering a cross of the indica leaning blueberry with the sativa leaning Love Potion #2... I think this cross gets me close enough and saves me a year or so of fuss...

    Any thoughts on Highland Mex appreciated...

      Never run it, but I found this article:

      MEXICAN
      Highland Oaxaca

      Highland Gold, somewhat similar to the Colombian Gold, lacked bright gold color but sported purple and red calyx tips on its blondish-brownish-green buds. It had larger buds surrounded by long, skinny leaves.

      I smoked this variety during brief periods in the early 70's and again in the late 70's, paying anywhere between $40 and $120 per ounce. It was some of my all-time favorite because the aroma and flavor were of a super-spicy cedar incense with a slight fermented berry taste, in a very comfortable yet powerfully psychedelic pot. This herb contributed to many great parties, concerts and events of the era because it produced a very socially-conscious experience and mixed well with other psychedelics.

      With a long lasting, creeper high that kept coming on in waves over the hours, this stuff had no ceiling. One phenomenon consistently reported from the Highland Oaxaca experience was that of peripheral visual distortions of primarily cartoon color images. This tended to increase the visual distortions caused by other psychedelics such as mushrooms or LSD.

      The Oaxaca Highland Gold was a nearly pure Sativa which grew tall at 45°N, outdoors. It was also one of the most symmetrical Sativas I have encountered. The plants grew long side branches toward the bottom, and the even growth made these productive beauties look like Christmas trees when mature.

      The finished product was a very sweet and spicy herb of the highest quality, with a hint of fruity pine aroma. The seeds for this variety were small, dark and round, and the plants exhibited slight signs of hermaphroditism and required surveillance to maintain seedlessness.

      Guerrero

      This strain from Mexico's coastal mountains came in famed green, seeded spears and cost $60 to $120 per ounce in 1977. It had a spicy, almost wintergreen fragrance compared to the other Mexicans with a very clear head high and a most pleasant smoke. It was not as strong as most, but this herb still had a way of satisfying all its own.

      There was a legend about a group of entrepreneurs who imported seed from Lebanon to Guerrero and grew the famed Lebanese Upper Mountain (LUM) from the late 1970's to 1980. The LUM was electric, psychedelic and slightly sedative as well. A unique herb that I wish there would have been more of.

      The seeds from the Guerrero were medium to large in size and grey to green in color. The plants from these seeds grew similarly to other Mexican and Colombian strains: a medium to tall, bushy, productive plant. The Guerrero Green, however, is where some of the famed onion and garlic flavored bud of the Pacific Northwest originated.

      Michoacan Brown Spears

      From the high valleys of Michoacan, this strain was very similar in shape and texture to the Guerrero, but dark brown, and with a more peppery, spicy, woody aroma. $40 to $60 bought a seeded ounce in 1975. Although it was somewhat more bland tasting than the Guerrero , this semi-commercial pot was by far better than the commercial Mexican that was all too available. It had a more distinct, spicy flavor than the regular Mexican, as well as a brighter high that was not as susceptible to tolerance or burnout.

      The plants from the Michoacan Spears were nothing great. They were thick and bushy and matured earlier than the Colombians. Some were ready in late October, but most were ready in early November. The seeds were medium grey and plentiful. Like the Guerrero, they produced some unique spicy flavors when grown outdoors in the Pacific Northwest.

        There are some great cola pics on pg 53 of the oaxaca thread in dj forum, so far the hash has received a 5 star rating by Perhaps.

              Hmm. 10 packs of F-13 to find the Electric Day Brightener?

              All I can say is I dearly hope Gentleman Farmer made a whole lot of clones...

              Does that ratio include male plants or just female??? How would one identify an Electric Day Brightener male...

              Scored a pack of Highland Mex x BB on the Bay...

                    Chimera has a big brain to make this cross indeed. Also, Dj spent years to sweat this pollen into existence. Truly, the only indica is the quik finish...this male gave it all...potency, head, flavor and dense Resinated calyx Coverage. And its plenty F1 to really reward each ten pk and your own f2-s holy shhte thx C And D.

                      PERFECT STRAIN

                      I WAS OVERJOYED WHEN I FOUND I COULD BUY THIS STRAIN AND NOT HAVE TO INVEST THE YEARS OF TIME TRYING TO CREATE AN INFERIOR STRAIN. THE OAXACAN IS THE FIRST WEED I EVER GOT HIGH ON, AND TO THIS DAY IT WAS STILL THE MOST FUN I HAVE EVER HAD IN ONE AFTERNOON LAUGHING. MEMORIES... THE OLDER I GET THE BETTER THE BETTER I USED TO BE!! WAITING FOR MINE TO SHOW UP. WITH THIS STRAIN DJ'S TRUE BLUE AND BLUEBERRY AND MANDALAS [KALICHAKRA,SAFARI AND MANDALA1] MY DAYS OF WEED SHOPPING ARE OVER. TIME TO STOCKPILE SEEDS FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.

                        MR.ALKALINE

                        YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THAT IS. CANCER CAN'T LIVE IN A NON ACIDIC BODY. ACIDOLPHUS IS SOLD IN ALL WALMARTS AND HEALTH FOOD STORES. ABOUT $8 A BOTTLE. THE PHARMICUITICAL COMPANIES DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW THE THE TRUTH. THEY CAN'T EXPLOIT WHAT IS ALREADY ON THE MARKET AT THAT PRICE. THEY ARE EVEN TRYING TO MAKE VITAMIN C A PRESCRIPTION. TWO MUCH MONEY IN RESEARCH TO HAVE A CURE. LOOK AT THE COMMON COLD. WHERES THE TELATHON TO FIX THAT. THEY SAY IT'S A VIRUS NO CURE??? WHY ARE WE SPENDING BILLIONS ON AIDS RESEARCH?

                          Welcome back, Chimera!

                          Could you give us a little detail on the mysterious Highland Mexican mother you selected for this inspired cross? Pics and/or heritage would be extra nice...

                            yes this would be great, I plan on using this with my love potion #1, I presume its Highland Oaxaca Gold and not Ac gold.... (altough since Gurrero (can never spell it ) has been mentioned I'm led to think its now this)


                            I was considering a cross of the indica leaning blueberry with the sativa leaning Love Potion #2...
                            I've never run Lp#2 hows it different to #1 ? is it more on the SMCG side ? the plant i have is very much on the side of SMCG, hope you don't mind me throwing up a pic of the Lp#1

                              Nice fat bud on that one! Love Potion #2 is the lemon pheno of that cross. It's a little known fact that the lemon pheno of LP#1 won the CC in '04... LP#2 leans heavily to the SMCG side and I am concerned it won't finish well for me... The HMxBB is a 'hedge' if you will, as I want something upbeat to toke over next winter...

                              I don't like to assume what the genetics are in a cross- I like to know! Damn that's half the fun for me! I suspect HM to be a blend of Mex genetics- I hope the afghan genes haven't muddied the Mex...

                              As a side note, Reef stated in a post that BB genes didn't take well to his LP#1 which is why he didn't do a seed run with DJ's famous Pimp Daddy pollen or the BB Sativa he grew out... Still, if I am fortunate enough to get a G13xBBSativa male you can bet I'll dust a few lower buds of the LP#2. I feel the G13 will 'weld' the two strains together... I'm dying to do LP#2 x Vanillaluna!

                              P.S.- I bumped Double Strawberry Diesel in favor of HMxBB in my '08 garden line-up
