Yo Sammy is not the Yosemite Sam on ICMag. I asked him at the Lab.
Awesome thread mate and looking forward to more
"Taste is a very sativa Nev. Less pine taste than your typical Nev, with a bit more sweetness and spice from the Thai in the Early Mullum. That early mullum must be something really special Kanga. Fast (for a tropical) great structure, great effects."
This plant has been on a 5yr breeding program, might have been quicker if it was legal here, but doesnt matter I enjoyed the journey and it has finally reached a point where I am super happy with it, and it takes alot to make me happy when talking about plants, so i am glad you like it mate, expect to see some nice crosses soon with this years Males and Females
Really nice thread Raho! I just love your flowers! This spring I picked up 3 packs of Seedsman's Original haze. Excited to grow these out.
I think that it is instructive to us all to see how well the T5's do in flower!
Oops...sorry to say, I asked Rob Clarke about 6 months back if he was "R" and he wrote back saying no way. He didn't have much positive to say about the self-proclaimed "Herb Connoisseur".
It had been so long since I had read those early issues that I just thought I'd ask...simpler.
I went back and read a few of "R"'s weed reviews and his annual awards and could instantly see the difference in their writing. Rob only wrote a few columns over the early years. When I have some time next weekend I'll dig out a few, scan them, and post them.
Thanks Kanga !
Can you share a bit of description of the smell/taste/effects of the eMM?
I perceive it to have very strong thai influence based on my limited experience growing 2 Thai females in 81 (seeds from University of Colorado Boulder, a friend stole them from his brother's stash of Thai sticks) and a QP of loose Thai I carried home in my luggage on the plane from my summer in Mendo in 83.
I suspect that umbrella would cover a lot of your work though, given your taste and the genetics you have to work with there.
There is great diversity among strains described as "Thai" today, and I know of nobody with a better context to elaborate ;-)
So . . . am I on the right track?
Can't wait to see what comes next from that work!
I see these written descriptions as one of the end products of connoisseurship as advocated by "R" (Rob Clark) back in the day.
His writing as "R" expanded my appreciation of LIFE, not just herb.
Well I will always be his fan for Marijuana Botany. Still have my first edition after all these years. Turned a kid into an aspiring geneticist.
If "R" was nothing more than a fictional Bon Vivant, he still had a positive influence on me, that's for sure ;-)
I can see why RCC would express dislike. His work (and personality?) was more research scientist than wine tasting, and "R's" stuff seemed to be about 70% fiction.
I always resolved the obvious conflict in styles as him putting on the nom de plum as a full character. His own walk on the wild side.
Screw the details . . . 3 cheers for the spice of life!
Thanks for dispelling that identity myth. I don't wanna be running around spreading BS.
For yourself MJ, are you more connoisseur or scientist? (portrayed as 2 sides of a spectrum for convenience.)
Very interesting raho I didn't realize your male came from gdtrfb's stock. Was that from the o haze x nl f2's then?
I have about 12 packs of gtdrfb's crosses. 3 each of the sb, ohaze nl f2, schnazz, and bx, so it is great to hear of the breeding potential. I just popped 5 seeds of his sb cross and got 2 fems at about 7 weeks. One leans towards the bubble the other is a carbon copy of his haze, still stretching 7 weeks in and taking over my mixed ppk bed. Will probably throw some chop shots up here.
Kanga!Hey Raho, I am probably the worst Person to ask on that subject, because my vocab doesnt have the flamboyance that people have today when describing flavours.....MM to me has always had that rich earthy Thai smell of old school and it seems to carry it through into most crosses, The Thai's I grew this year carried the same smell apart from the GN Thai as that has a bit more sweetness to it.
Kangativa said:The MM is a awesome strain and when you take a toke on a joint you can draw it in nice and deep with plenty of smoke, like smoking chillums in the old days, it is rjch, powerful and lung expanding.
It and the Oax are the perfect outcrosses as they are both very old school genetics.
What I am working on now is a Sumatran/Oaxacan x MM cross...the tastes and smells from this one will have Big Herb salivating..lol
Probably not a fair question. Obviously you are much more than both of those things.
I am merely a logistics expert who dabbles in life experiments.
Some I navigate seemlessly while others kick my ass.
Concerning the growing of cannabis I lean toward scientist: gentleman farmer. Still, my ability to plan and create secure logistics for guerrilla growing is the true essence of my spirit....adventure, nature, and the hippie lifestyle.
