    I used ot have a book with a whole chapter on Neville, the author met him and did lengthy interviews, he talked in depth about how he went to Hollant to get clean of heroin because the Dutch had the best drug treatment programmes in the world and one of the ways the programme Neville enroleld in helped former addicts get back to a normal life was to help them setup business ventures, give them training in how to setup and run their own business etc. Neville told them he wanted to setup a cannabis seed business and they helped him get started. I wish I could find the book but I think I lent it to a friend who never returned it. There was a lot of info as Neville was pretty candid.

      Someone had taken pics of the cannabis castle article in HT from the 80's where he tells a lot of things, dont remember where the hell it was, somewhere here in IC for sure.

            Great thread guys.

            You've inspired me to germ the last 6 OH seeds I had.I tried them once before but they didn't turn out so good.These things are beasts indoors and the take about 8 weeks to even show sex.









            The last time i grew them when I topped them the sap that came out looked just like blood,it will be interesting to see if it repeats.





            Hey Sam,I think I've uncovered your top secret program-CODE NAME:
            INJECT-A-SKUNK

              Never seen red sap before, does indeed look like it's bleeding!

                Not these seeds were 1 generation after Odltimer spared them. Must say also he always acted like a gentleman to us. He spared houndreds of them during the 90's as he said, also he spared seeds of 3 different Haze lines. These are 1 of those, he never got news about other 2. Is only info I remember. An old thread at CW ended up also really messy and polemic but for what we wanted, information about plants, to talk about plants, was dificult to extract any info at all which could help and maybe lead us in some growing and selecting direction... Maybe better like this, so not other influence when we looked at them for the first time.

                Much appreciated

                You know charlie i think wich ever way you step on the topic of 0t1 sativa line its bound to step on toes .

                I personaly dont know ot1 have read a little about him and he seams okay guy.

                If its the post at shantis forum at cw your talking about thats were pacific came in and called wolfman a thief for passing on the seed right the seeds he was gifted to start with.

                The thing i found realy sad was wolfman was gifted seeds by pacific who was given them by ot1,Pacific called them old sativa seeds and sed she couldnt grow them were she was so past them onto wolf man were he ran them germed them and had x amount germ from the small number he made seed and Gant past them on to a few people around the world i was offerd them sed no as im sure you rember.

                The thing i realy didnt like about the ot1 sativa line is this in short.

                I started to read how this was the oldest haze and how the dutch haze was now so inbreed it was realy not even close to ot1 haze now this is no way directed at you / or ace seeds or at breederschoice seed co but more directed at any that sed the dutch haze as people called it was realy sub standed next to ot1s sativa.

                Is it me alone that sees this to be realy rong.

                Heres a few posts from ot1.

The only other Haze that may have some of the original one in could be Nevils haze but greenhouse haven't published its spec yet but once again I suspect it will have indica added we will see. Most the other so called haze are lambs breath and Thai crosses. In fact in Holland haze has become a generic term for a sat with a strong up high.

                I was involved in contributing genetics in the early days towards the breeding of what later became skunk#1, but I don’t like what it has become now. I loved field grown haze from SoCal when it was first being developed. Todays versions are pale in comparison.

                http://*****.com/boards/lofiversion/...php/t22714.htm

                Wasnt haze grown and developed in Greenhouses ?.




                Like i sed theres times no matter wich way you try and turn your going to step on toes.


                What ever ot1 sativa line is it looks nice people injoy it that have grown it so thats whats importent.


                I just find it od that this community has a habbit of rubbishing old pioners not directed at you by the way but stateing how i feel personaly from wat iv read / seen threw the years and the community to me has started to act like paparazi that stalk selebs take pictures and right what they see fit under a picture that seldems has truth to there wards yet people belive it.

                The Community talk about people be it sam / nevile / and others like they know them personaly and know what they have done or got up to well the comminity dont have a clue in short only few people know the facts and they seam reluctent or at best give a little of the full story so i feel best ways to just show respect and let there work speek for them if they dont.

                  Hola Hempy

                  I know your point and others. Sincerelly we tried to get out of any disrespects or internet polemics and concentrated only in plants. Ive read many opinions but not a clue about plants. Opinions dont help much. Our lenguage is plants and in that sense we acted and still act.

                  I would like to know more about Haze plants, haze ancestors and try to improve job if possible as seeds came here like that, named old hazes. I dont think anyway ACE OT seeds will be in the market too long as goal was ppl catched attention to old sativa genetics and job is almost done. Is everyones turn now to select and improve them if they like or can do it.

                  Sincerelly most of internet polemics like that one unconcentrate me from job so much.. I am not interested and not disrespecting anyone, pls understand me well. I care about plants and worry about genetics... is where I have my fun and think we can be more useful. Growing, describing and documenting what we found. An there is not much of old lines available to restore. We sent fresh seeds later to wolfman to OT and to Pacific.. we did our part with all honesty (a strange word, isnt it?) We asked everyone involved what could we do with the seeds as OT felt himslef he had failed to give them good life when spared them all for free. OT and wolf collaborated and provided us with all best info they had and we agreed on releasing them to public so. I can talk and do to Wolfman or to OT face to face and we feel quite well with our jobs as although may sound silly, we love genetics.

                  Once a few things were cleared up I dont want to highjack any line in this thread any longer as its Sam the man who worked them and has the knowdlege, facts and truths to talk and who deserves all merits... he said he collected all haze lines in the beginning, cross them to and later inbred them... only thing we can do here is learn if so but dont think we can add much talking about polemics or origins... these are 100% sativa haze lines, profile, traits, flavours etc... same polemics have been always in scene as far as I remember... and often a way to hide the truths. Sometimes when we dont know a fact we can ramble around and with the time seems to become the truth. So long has passed since those times to know now for sure.

                  You know a phrase I learnt when started in this, I trust plants, I cant trust ppl... to create an original hybrid like haze or others use to take years, to be hacked by others takes 5 minutes and hey can take all the merit... we all know how facts can be distorted or misunderstood with the time as well... I have not the answers to these polemics, we only grew all those real sativa haze seeds... thats why I am asking Sam as well here for some info... with all my respect and sincerity... so many words for just a few real facts at the end, sounds like a waste of energy to me and I am getting older I see so dont wanna waste it much... prefer to look and talk about plants

                  my respect hempy and everyone

                      I agree that the word Haze became a generic term in Holland a long time ago, but to be honest, I've seen mislabelled weed in Holland right from the first time I went there in 1995. The Thai x Lambsbread thing mystifies me though, never heard that said before.

                      Hiya hempy, perhaps the thing with both the Haze and the OT1 Haze you grew is selection, Tom Hill said that 1 in 20 of the Haze he grew(that he bought at Positronics) were special, the rest hay. Perhaps it is a case of, unless you are comparing the special ones, they will all be disappointing?

                        Hempy, I don't think it is as much anyone trying to discredit the pioneers, as much as being aligned with different pioneers and the versions of events that they convey. Neville, Sam, Wernard, Djshort, Oldtimer, and Shanti all say slightly different things. Then you have the guys who were a generation older like Mel Frank, Old Ed, or E from Humboldt. Everyone thinks that their guy is right and does so at the expense of anothe guy's reputation. All of these guys contributed in their own way. Some created new heirlooms, some like Mel worked lines a little but mostly spread around knowledge and genetics. Some of the genes I've grown from the guys who were the generation before hold their own with anything that I've come across.

                        I feel that every breeder, unless they're grabbing feral hemp from the wild, is standing on the shoulders of those who came before them. I'm not going to say everything that was done by all these guys was constructive, as some of it was completely destructive. But, for the most part they did what they thought was right at the time, and they deserve credit for that.

                        In my experience, frequently the people who deserve the credit are often the last ones to step up and accept it, because often the best work is done out of love and passion for the work, not for accolades and recognition, and I tend to align myself with the underdog, the quiet ones standing back in the corner, looking like they know something the others do not. In this particular instance, however, noone can say they deserve all the credit, except perhaps some ancient ganja farming monestary in India.

                          Last pic is of the plangt I kept, great herb, picky to grow indoors for sure. So these are of yours Sam? Original or not, it's great, made a few crosses already, interesting to see how it blended with Sweet Tooth, many of the crosses I have had the pleasure to grow and taste are just fantastic, CBF's Strawberry Creme X OHaze purple pheno (yes these pop from Tom's beans also) aka Strawberry Haze is just amazing....

                          Great info in this thread, the world needs facts and here we have them...Im a young sprout but done read a pile of High Times mags and some of the timelines I see here just dont fit...Neville himself told that he didnt actually do anything new just cross and breed things that were already bred, and he indeed started with shit for beans he has said this himself, and he started business years after skunk and haze and such were well known varieties, at least in USA. But I wasnt there either.
                          Very nice FJ
                          Here is one of the Ot1´s female cuts,is there much difference??

                              Hiya British_Hempire i think the ward haze is used a lot but like i say unless its linket to the haze brothers line it cant be haze.

                              On the boards i see many pictures of strains called this or that and few match up to the old lines i rember with the names used.

                              I havent grown ot1 line was offerd it by gant but i sed no as i wonted nothing to do with it and had my resons i told gant them privertly.

                              Sam or others that worket haze should answear that question about haze but i do know haze was unstable why they put work into the line.

                              I dont know to much about Positronics but i belive there haze lines were haze hybreeds sam needs to comment on this as i dont know 100% but i do know that even 50% haze hybreeds can and often do need more than 14 weeks to mature in all honesty not to many 50% haze hybreeds i have run have been ready at 14 weeks more 16 weeks and the only time i have seen them come in faster was from running clones of the seed plants selected.

                                Charlie i think the best people to ask is those that worket the lines i think the ot1 sativa line is a good sativa hybreed line just by what people have seed that have grown it.

                                Theres a market for it and realy few people want to make seeds them selfs so why seed co have a place and always will mate.

                                Well yes growing is what it should be about sadly charlie more find polutics and self gain / stroking ones ego more to there likeing now days.

                                Im with you in that growing is what it should be about.

                                Old lines are still out there but you realy need to know the right people to get them most are very noid and for good reson safty being a big one on there mond.

                                Yes you guys did your part like i sed i respect you / ace seeds did nothing rong so please dont feel this is about you guys.

                                I like wolfman read his posts at cw he posted a lot in shantis forum as did i he got seeds as did pacific who didnt desrve a thing from were im siting the same time ace seeds got seeds and others from gant as did ot1 and i was offerd them to sed no like i sed.

                                Do you know what my probleam is with ot1 line charlie ?.

                                I will tell you its the fact that people now belive its the oldest purest haze avaluble and for it to be haze is has to be from the haze brothers wich its not charlie.

                                I to am intrested in the plants and there related info why i put my self in this position.

                                Ot1 has sed this is haze came from the haze brothers then has sed its the haze used to creat the haze by the haze brothers.

                                Theres more storys but no point .

                                .

                                I dont know why so many think soon as any line hit the dutch boarders it went to shit facts are lots of work went on there from breeders from all over the world the NL was used as the laws were good only reson work was done there.


                                Haze as i know it was done in greenhouses was not breed worket on by the haze brothers they were growers not breeders created something special that others worket did the breeding.


                                Im not posting this to rubbish any one but ot1 also says he basicly was involved in contributing genetics in the early days towards the breeding of what later became skunk#1 wich i find hard to belive.

                                No idear wat the ot1 sativa line is but its good all that matters.

                                I heard that a lot called there lines haze in cali back them that i have not heard of maybe sam can answear that all i know is for it to be real haze it needed to of come from the guys called the haze brothers.

                                Yes only those that worket the line can answear the questions relating to haze.

                                I to trust plants and still trust people but very few now days charlie the on line canna community is way diffrent to the small group of growers i new growing up threw the years even people i met threw people with a wide range of ages were diffrent to most in the on line community.


                                charlie like i sed mate what ever the ot1 line is people are happy growing it and smokeing it in all reality thats whats importent .
