The Gold Thai, AKA Thai78, Thia came from hempy and has nothing to do with the Laos. Supposedly it was reproduced 6 generations outdoors by Hempy's Uncle Tony in OZ since 1978. It was then crossed to Kangas giant Mullum cut named Beast. I have kept a cut of the MM78 for years and love her. But I also found full blown hermies and plants that where just not high enough quality to keep around. Takes a little digging as would be expected.
The Super Laos was from a different person BLB in Thailand. The original farmer they got the seeds from was shot and killed by the cops. Same Laos line Donald M shared with us in the line you call Maos we both love. BW got Laos F2s from DM and the Haze from Charlie Garcia to make his Super Laos x Haze currently being offered.
Nice info greeny ,
i found the same as you with the mullum thai 78 ,
5 out of 6 girls were hermies ,, the sixth i pulled as it was starting to toss a few males flowers , so in fact 6/6 ,
but i liked the smoke for sure , reminded me of some of the old thai stick ..
im not sure these seeds were tested properly if at all ...
your info about the laos is spot on ,
except i did sent bushy a few of the originals i got from blb ,
not that many , maybe 15 all up ,
and yep the rest were all f2 ,
while i loved that laos , it also throws some hermies ,
there was always a few seeds in every plant ,
never clusters of them like one would expect from a hermie ,
just the odd seed here and there ,
acceptable for growing ,, for breeding , im not so sure ...
perhaps more selection was needed to find a girl that doesnt do that , if there is one to be found ...
id support bushy in his endeavors , if he had consulted with the guy that initially made those seeds ,and come to some agreement,
though it seems he didnt ....
