    I’ll add another mention for northern lights. The NL flower we started getting 93 had that look as does the old NL cut we still grow locally.

    Found what looks to be a pretty close color to what I remember. This is a florida og from dna. It was posted up on a florida crippy thread on here. It seems more then likely whatever it was came from Florida to California in the 90's, and then vanished about the same time on both coasts.

    That may be true on the indoor, I've never seen that light of green color since which makes it even more intriguing. It was so fluorescent it looked painted.

    Back in the 90's sensi skunk and super skunk were neon green, although the taste description sounds more like affie, which can be like menthol.

    Almost 30 years ago, from what I recall a minty flavor, very smooth smoke. It was very popular for a time when brown brick still ruled the scene in northern california. That's really why it stood out so much as a contrast in those years. It was really light green, possibly lighter than blue dream or green crack in color. It really sort of vanished into the late 90's even.



    Hey, Johnny.


    You could ask Tom Hill as he's familiar with that area. He's been on the Chimera forum lately.


    Good luck.

    It may have been a Gainesville Green cross. Reason I think because those are the same months it showed up in northern California, then it was pretty much gone the rest of the year

    Random humboldt guesses

    Snow
    Trainwreck (not light green though)
    These are from my mid-2000’s memory so probably not applicable

    Not much help, but one of the homies came back from a trip to CA in the mid 90s with the brightest green weed we had ever seen. It was minty. He had to charge like 30-40 bucks an 8th to make his money back, it was an unheard of price at the time, but damn if it wasn't the best weed within hundreds of miles.

    You nailed it man, that was the description I have of it in my head to this day. I know it was one of the go to quality strain's of that era which has mostly vanished as far as I know. I'm sure more than a few humboldt cats on here grew it too.

    my guess would be a sativa plant maybe even a haze crossed with an afghan since that's what those strains all have in common, space queen has jack herer in it, so for humboldt in the 90s maybe something like an nl5 jack or nl5 tw, probably something random and not what ended up being the keeper

    I find the mint not bad but it gets old quick and it usually dominates making the flavor sort of one dimensional

    Really it was the color that stood out, to this day none of the bud I see in dispensaries has that crazy neon green look. I makes me wonder if it was possible it may have been dyed somehow though i doubt that.
