So lets start a thread right here. If every1 just gives an honest evaluation of what they have grow lately then this thread will blow up with valuable information.

There's way too many variables to factor in to something like this. General reviews such as those on forums like IC and others is the best way to go about it.

It's like giving a consumer report on dog breeding lines.
Yes, it would be good, however, everyone is individual on taste, sensation, experience with cannabis.

Maybe a chart with sections: Strain, regular, fem, hermaphroditic, potency, total weight, check boxes for terpenes, and rate them on a scale of 1-10.

I chopped 5 Tommy Chong's L A Amnesia the other day. Just waiting for them to dry and cure. This is the best weed I have found in a long time. It keeps you fucked up for quite a time. Got Jack Herrer just starting to flower. This is good weed also. I would say the high is similar to L A Amnesia.

not everyone knows how to grow a plant 100% healthy, some overfeed, others underfeed, that changes whole game in terms of smell... phenos from plant come up depending on the enviroment, so if someones grows x in South Africa and grows x in North America will have different results.. growing under high humidity, growing under low humidity.. at the end one´s review is not same as the other review.. so wont be accurate, Will only give you a direction in my opinion

March 2018. I ordered 10 Amnesia Fem from these guys. https://www.growerschoiceseeds.com/ I tried to germinate the way they recommend. 2 seeds germed and went on to grow quite nicely and produced some good smoke. 8 were duds. Jan 2019. I figured I would try them again. I ordered 5 Critical Purple Fem. Not one seed germinated after following their instructions to a tee. I will never use them again.

Seed Finder is just user reports, so if no one's grown it, you don't get a smoke report or review.

The old Strainbase from OG never really came back, the new overgrow.com doesn't have it, and people dont' seem that interested in posting strain reviews anymore. Leafly sucks IMO because you don't even know if the weed being reviewed is the correct strain

Before a Consumers Report can be made accurately we need to clean up the seed game.


How can anybody be expected to report, accurately, about a bunch of jumbled up genetics that are not worked for any traits in particular.
1:1 crosses made using multi-poly hybrid lines does not an F1 make.
How can anything as jumbled up as cannabis genetics be accurately evaluated?


When I go and get a pack of Black Krim tomato seeds and germinate them...
Guess what tho resulting fruits are? That's right... They're Black Krim tomatoes!
Such is NOT the case with cannabis seeds.

I don't know how good it is though. It's a start I guess for the seed bank itself.


Leafly is just a commercial site. You can buy a page for your seeds and bank that looks like an article.

First off I want to thank everyone for the input.
Aridbud, I like your suggestion and approach. The chart with categories and rating scale would do the trick.
Weird, Did you document your 2013 concept on here. I'd love to look it over.
Tycho, Yes you are correct that only rates the seller of seeds , not the seeds themselves.

I sit here pondering the dilemma , Do I accept the reduction in yield for the autos, or do I revert back to fem seeds and top them during veg and get plants twice as tall and large.

There are just too fucking many seed options out there to roll the dice on. I could read every grow report on this site, but that leaves me no time for golf, sex, grilling, seeing friends, spending time with my wife, children, friends and grand kids, smoking meats and ganja, vacations in Negril and Colorado, seeing old time rock bands, going to Cardinals games and my second bladder cancer operation.

I do want to shout out to the breeders that have delivered a wonderful seed product that I've grown and the final product properly cured in mason jars buzzed the hell out of me and friends: Thanks Nirvana, Og rascal, and Connosieur genetics. The seeds I purchased from you guys delivered in spades. They were fem seeds in organic soil under two 400 watt lamps( MH and HPS).
