Panama x Honduras

Yesterday was the most euphoric positive happy day of mt life for a very long time.
This Panama x Honduras cob made from the more mature lower buds on the plant I grew last year is the best tasting and easily the best high I have come across.
No stone at all just go go go in a bursting out of your skin euphoric buzz that lasted all day chewed and only about 0.15g believe it or not.
Today I will double the dose and see what happens.
This cob has been aged about 9 months and is superb. My friends just want to smoke it and nothing else ha ha.
I have 3 more seeds growing and cant wait to cob them in the new year.
For me high doesn't get any better than this. I took on a 7km walk yesterday every step was a new experience everything was so damn beautiful.

Thanks for sharing Tangwena ! Looks like some king of magic gem !
Honduras should be one of the most adapted strain for our weather. Had my eyes on it but thought the THC level was a bit low. You're proving once again that all isn't about THC level...

A great week end to all !

Yes its got no stone to it so some may think it not strong.
But for my taste its perfect I just want to feel like every day is the best day of my life and this stuff delivers in spades.
Stony weed just kills what little energy I have these days.

i have 3 days work this week and this baby will have me on cloud nine all day in 1/10 of a gram doses.
Today I tried 1/4 of a gram and it was the same just with the volume turned up ha ha.
This is fast becoming my favorite every day high.

I am reading this thread from start to end but only a few pages in. All in all it is fascinating to see the process updated for modern times and read of the effects produced from this less known method.


I believe that some of the best i ever smoked was from broken or smashed cob pieces that were available to me for only a short time many summers ago.


I will tell you why think it was from cob rather than brick because the material was very dark purply/black which after reading here seems to show a fermentation had taken place somewhere. The smell was more aromatic than brick which had a tell tale ammonia edge to it. Smoke was softer and very flavoursome, sweet and earthy.


Effects were gentle but uplifting and creative, i took many long walks over the hills that year and spent hours exploring the beaches. The sad story is that no seeds were kept but there were not that many to be had anyway.


I really do appreciate this thread from Tangwena and all the others who post their experience and results. Cheers to you all.

I dont wash them but plenty of others do and for outdoors it can get rid of a lot of dust, sand and other wind born agents that get stuck to the buds outside so it would not be a bad idea.
Just remember its not the cob that makes them strong its what goes into the cob. So the better the buds you use the better the result so cleaning them cant be bad.
Some members on 420 also pre dry the green buds in the fridge and claim it helps bring out the terps.
I am going to do a side by side cobbing on my next harvest one fridge dried and one naturally pre dried as I think it may be a good thing to do if it helps to mature the aromas prior to cobbing.
Outdoors buds can really shine using this cure. I had some Malawi x Ethiopia and Golden Tiger outdoors last year and they were both superb in both flavor and effect. I probably should have washed them though when chewing the cobs I get crunchy bits now and then probably grains of wind blown sand. Not enough to bother me though.

More than likely my friend when I was in Malawi long long ago now there were plenty of canna tourists even in those days and a lot was sent back home by them.
The real good quality cobs are something you never forget.


The ammonia smell is a give away on composted pot. The smell of a fermented cob especially prior to aging when its fresh from the cure is all fruity fermented smells, and is very distinctive and something regular cobbers live to sniff. Its a very good indication of how well the cure is going and a sign that you are on the right track.

both plants have a super sweet tropical fruit smell,i like it and i want that smell in my cobs plus the scent of the cob itself...keep on spreading this wonderful tradition all over this crazy world brother

Malawi x Ethiopian

The effects on buds from the same plant with 24hr sweat.
One cob was cured for only one week then dried and aged halting the cure.
The other was cured for 3 weeks and then dried and aged also halting the cure at that point.
Both have been aged 9 months.
Both have totally different effects 1 week is very speedy and enjoyed by my friends who like to smoke it.
The 3 week cured is extremely trippy when chewed within 15 mins my eyes are like dishes then the madness comes the effects only last 5 hrs compared to others i have where 8 to 10 hrs is the norm which is good for short trips to the other side.

24 hours sweating - I've always done about 24 hours sweating in sealed bags at around 40C. What happens if the bud is sweated for 48 hours, 72 hours or a week on 40C? Any cob makers tried that?
