Thanks for the Nevil quote. I'm cool with Nevil, not fanboy style but appreciate his contributions to the cannabis scene getting seed out there, ect. He managed to do a lot with his resources, more than many had done before and since. That said, there are many who share seed without a price attached. Some even spend their own money for postage stamps to send them. I respect that greatly. We stand on the shoulders of giants, Nevil included, but he is not the only one. There were many who came before him that made it possible for him to secure his stature in cannabis history forever, by providing genetics that ended up changing the scene in a major way. More than just the NL crew, but the Afghani tribes and farmers who sowed those seeds for generations before they even made it to the US and subsequently to Amsterdam then across the entire world.
As for the NL5 offspring the NL boys came to scoop from Nevil, was that seed Nevil made himself or selections from the seed he received from the NL crew? I'm assuming he selected from the seeds he got from the NL crew.
Not gonna lie, I'm having a little trouble grasping the happenings back then. I thought Seattle Greg sent Nevil some Northern Lights. How could Nevil's Mazar be part of the makeup of all Northern Lights if that's what they sent Nevil? Did the NL crew order some of Nev's Mazar and use it and then send their gear to him? Was it not the NL5 that he sent, was it just the Afghan? So many questions always turn into so many more.
I thought I heard Greg say on the podcast he was interviewed on, maybe a quote I read somewhere, that the NL #'s were 1-11 with the 1 being the shortest and the 11 being the tallest. If I recall, it wasn't different amounts of Hawaiian in all of them, I thought I heard that there was everything from Nepalese to Colombian and Thai used in the various crosses. That the Hawaiian cross was a one off type deal.
I thought I heard it that NL#1 was the cross with Nev's Mazar, NL#2 was the cross with the Indians gear, and the other crosses were with things like thai, hawaiian, nepalese, ect. With all of them being crossed to Murphy's afghan.
Murphys afghan x Nevs Mazar = NL1
Murphys afghan x Indians gear = NL2
Murphys afghan x Hawaiian = NL5
Murphys afghan x Nepalese
Murphys afghan x Thai
Murphys afghan x Colombian
All making different NL #'s
and so on....
Is that incorrect?
I'm going to re listen to that podcast again. Much love
