I used to get brick from a guy in Brighton UK. We nick named him "stick" for obvious reasons LOL

Anyway I would bitch about seeds and he would say

"At least you know your are smoking bud!"

And I was. Hence, it was better than bricks with no seeds.

First time I saw Columbian Gold around Norfolk/Virginia Beach on the east coast was around late 1973..

Damn, it was some good weed.
At the time, most weed was about $20 an ounce. Good Jamaican had been around a few years and was about $25.
The Columbian gold was selling for $30 an ounce...Outrageous! but it was worth it!

It was gone within 6 months or so and the Columbian "Redbud" replaced it.. Damn good weed, but not as good as the gold..

Around late 1974, Goldbud was back again, but it wasn't the same.
I think the cartels had learned that the goldbud would sell, so they figure out how to "sunbleach" it so it would look the same, but it was NOT the same grass!

I sure wish I had saved seeds form the original Goldbud and Redbud....

First time I smoked really good Colombian Gold was around a month ago. From my USC Colombian Gold '72 plants grown indoors.

The first imported CG in '79 was a disappointment to tell the truth. Picked early and not pure in my opinion, but still an up high and ok. I can only imagine how good the current stuff would be if I could grow it outside at high altitude. It is still great though.

Snowhigh has a CG '72 seed line of his own. I have those seeds in the fridge. He says the Colombians changed the CG for regular pot and sun bleached it to sell as Colombian Gold, somewhere around mid to late seventies. They also left the males in the field to seed the crop so as to make it weigh more.

So a lot of older peeps have never even had the real thing is what he is saying. Based on what I have experienced he is right.

What I thought was Colombian Gold in the late 70's must have been the sun bleached stuff , because I never thought it was super strong, just decent. I remember the smell being incense and tasted great.

EastForkRock - How would you compare the thaistick and Colombian red to today's best weed?

I don't know much about today's best weed . My Trainwreck that I just grew kind of reminds me of Thai , similar buzz as far as I remember , but the Thai was more fruity and less menthol than Trainwreck. The Colombian Red was my buddy's bag (back in 1979 I think) and I remember it being more mental and scary than anything I have had anytime in later years.

It would be nice to have them side by side, e.g. 70's Colombian freshly grown, and new Sativa genetics, e.g. Apollo 11 or Cinderella.

Sounds like the Colombian has great taste - as does the Apollo/Cind.

Freedom Haze is a Haze cross from Freedom of Seeds. Maybe as close as I've gotten recently to something Colombian-Sativa-ish.

Colombian Gold must be "top 10", or we wouldn't be talking about it.

One of the South American sativa's I've really enjoyed is what happens when you grow out 100 seeds from decent Mexican press-brick mersh. I did that in the late 90's, and one Skunk Sativa that resulted was super - resiny, vigorous, Skunk smell.
