A brief history of The Devil's Harvest Krew...

Ive thought about putting this story on here for quite some time. It was written for a friends cannabis magazine that never took off. Im proud to have been a DHK member. No matter what has been said or will ever be said about us on here or any other site; we (the members) know what we stood for. Hopefully this will shed a little light. Sooner or later the whole hoarder thing will be replaced with the truth......................... .............Moonshine

Anyone named here that didnt want to be named. Sorry, just setting the story straight.




The DHK......

Many strains of cannabis and the people behind them always seem to have a bit of mythology to them, the story I tell here is no mythology, its the True story behind the most notorious internet based cannabis genetic trading KREW……The Devil’s Harvest Krew…….

In the late 90’s and early part of the new century one of the greatest cannabis growing resources existed in the form of Overgrow.com. This place was the true wild west, grow information from all aspects of the globe were shared openly. Huge outdoor grows fully documented,, Greenhouse grows from all over the world, original breeders of many of todays popular strains openly talking and sharing info.

Shortly before Overgrow was taken down by the RMCP and the servers seized; a group of dedicated friends made an promise to acquire and spread quality cannabis genetics across the country by any means necessary . The Devil’s Harvest Krew was born.

From this initial, well intended, idea many relationships were destroyed, reputations tarnished, and a few people even fell into the hands of the police. BUT In the end, what started as 4 internet friends ballsy decision, in reality, changed the cannabis scene in this country by moving over 300 elite/clone only and choice seed selections of cannabis into every nook and cranny of the good old USA.

Until the creation of the DHK most strain trading was done in VW vans at Dead shows by way of bag seed or between very close friends. The only purpose of the DHK was to openly trade clones amongst members, protect the greatest genetics by securing them in trustworthy gardens and spread the rest into the surrounding communities with the hope that the diversity of genetics would encourage others to grow. …….And it Did….

A few of the original members of the DHK were Weedzilla, Outdoor Grower, Erawk, and myself (Moonshineman). There were many members later (you had to have 2 recommendations from existing members to join) but these 4 were the primary clone traders and who most people recogonize as the DHK. I’ll add there were many individual growers/collectors who never were official DHK members but contributed heavily to the onslaught of genetics that were traded during its prime. ORgn kid , MrDank Katsu , ThaDocta, Cronique, Swerve, OgRaskl, Romulator, just to name a few.

For over 5 years every vacation, free weekend, moment to chill, the members had; was spent moving clones from the West Coast to the East Coast and vice versa. It was a wonderful time to be a cannabis lover, many people didn’t even realize that there was a slow change of local genetics until it was too late. Until 02’ it seemed the only herb you could find in Boulder County Colorado was “The Blue” or “Cough” then overnight it seemed the whole Front Range was growing something new. I’m not going to take credit for changing the palate of stoners in the Republic of Boulder over the last decade, but the DHK probably had more to do with it than you realize.

If you have had the pleasure to smoke any of the following strains in your area, (outside of the hot spots in Cali) most likely they were brought there or ended up there because of a DHK member. Hash plant #1, Amnesia Haze, Trainwreck, G-Haze, Old Blue, HP/13, DHK Black Domina, Sage n Sour, SoCal Bubbleberry, BubbaKush, Romulan, GDP, Elvis, Godbud, Cherry Ak, G13, Laveau, Og Kush, SFV OG kush, Pure Kush, Chemdog, Schrom, Blowfish, Jackie -O, P91, Pink Kush, Purple Urkle, West Coast Dog, Cali-o, Chocolate Thai, Wrigley, Krystal Spike, Cinderella 99 , MsM’s Mr Nice , Purple Indica, Sour Kush, Tangerine Haze, the list goes on and on……

One of the most often overlooked elements of the DHK was the ability of its members to grow out multiple identical packs of seeds, compare the best females in order to find true Keeper’s. The DHK “Tangerine Haze” is one such example. Members picked up the original G13/Haze x NYCD from Soma seeds in 03-04 and over the next year each grew out his pack of seeds, compared the best females and it was obvious which female stood out (at least in flavor). Nicknamed Tangerine Haze this strain is still fairly horded even though it has been passed freely for the last couple of years. You guys can thank Erawk for that find!

With all the good intentions the DHK had in the beginning; a few unfortunate events started the untimely doom for the Krew. Diseased cuts, Trash talking but Ultimately it was a couple of the original members simply having enough of the internet drama that finally broke up the DHK.

In the end the DHK was known to be a group of “Hoarders” (Elitist growers who don’t give out genetics). The good we did was lost to a lot of internet hearsay. For every 1 strain we kept to ourselves we handed out 15 to 20 without even asking for a gram of herb back. On top of everything we stood for NO money EVER exchanged hands for genetics. A True Kinship amongst friends with a shared interest that existed even though we all lived in the most oppressive anti cannabis country in the world.

Never Be Complacent……Don’t let others tell you it cant be done…….I devoted the last 16 years of my life to cannabis and I wouldn’t trade a single day of it……

I appreciate this chance to set the story straight and at least give some insight to the rest of the canna universe as to the efforts of a few, well meaning, cannabis lovers that ended up making it a lot easier for many of you to experience these wonderfully rare strains.

To my DHK brothers who may be reading this: I hope we can all forgive and forget at some point. You guys were an inspiration and my best friends for the last decade.

Why hoard any strain then, if you dedicated your life to it, why hold back. You may have passed along great strains but why keep the very best to your self?

There are many groups that don't go anywhere near the net, that have been operating in large numbers for years and years, they stay low, and quiet, but have had a major impact on the scene all the same.
Motor cycle clubs, the Vietnamese, etc... just to name a few
Most people don't know how big their contribution has been because they don't go around bragging about it.

Yeah, most of those groups are also responsible for spreading coke, heroin, meth and a bunch of guns and shit. That would be the "trading done in the back of VW vans reference" I made.

DHK only operated to spread cannabis. BIG DIFFERENCE. We also never hurt anyone or extorted money. Many of us never met face to face. How many people or those other groups did that. Give up freely what you cherish most to someone youve never met and only know as an online persona.

JGrow, No one kept anything to themselves. Pretty much anything kept by one member was in another members garden which meant it was also in the gardens of the local friends of that DHK member. For myself, anything super high end I got I gave it to 2-3 of my best friends. That way if anything happened I could get it back. Most folks dont realize that just a few years ago many of the "normal" strains around WERE the super elites.

Not bragging. Just telling the truth. Just a story just like the Chemdog stories OG kush stories etc. This story can be verified.

I knew posting this would ruffle a few feathers. There were many DHK haters. Like I said, I hold my banner high.

Thanks for the info Moonshine. It is good to know that there are groups really passing things from coast to coast and not just holding them.
