A new review for Crop King’s Hash Plant. This was a clone that was given as a gift, but the genetics are from the original pack I purchased and subsequently gave my friend a seed.

The plant got through all the different rides, mites and pests, freezing cold winter temperatures, and overnuting. I didn’t realize how hot the soil still was and I just kept feeding liquid plant food with no restraint. The last mess up was a big one because excess nitrogen just nuked my yield. The buds were more leaf than flower. This plant did less well than others in nutrient recovery, I’m guessing because it had a shorter flowering time. Once found, I flushed for a period, and recovered some flavour. Overall, I composted much more than I kept.

The taste is bland, sort of harsh. The nutrient excess really comes through. There are very deep, hidden sweet tones, but I can’t get to it. I will say, I’ve overnuted much worse, and tasted much worse weed that wasn’t overnuted. Not much trichome production on top of the veggieness.

The potency is unaffected. Not as strong as some of my previous Hash Plant grows, it still is a very heavy indica. I really round this iteration makes me straight tired.

Disappointing ending on almost all fronts minus potency. I do enjoy mixing it, and the pitiful 8 grams was worth the 8 grams of effect, but at a “meh” taste. The big mistake was at my hand and I will live with it. Please refer to some of my other reviews for Hash Plant because in reality it is a very, very good strain.

This is a review for an unknown distributor’s Super Silver Haze. Very tough to score as there are alot of complicated events, that ultimately resulted in a tiny yield. However, I do have a good sense of the strain.

This clone came to me through a friend from a friend, so it passed multiple hands. It came in a nonpreferred container, and the worst soil. I gave it a better home.

It grew thin branches and buds, not super vigorous or massive, easy to manage. No exceptionally large stretch once flowered. I did go the full ten weeks, which was the most common general projection online.

This plant also went through the holy war with fungus gnats and spider mites. It got through frigid temperatures while I waited on a new furnace. It absorbed way too much soil amendment as I continued to feed liquid food, specifically nitrogen. This last point is the biggest factor with this grow. The buds got nitrogen for far too long and never got a chance to gain density. I caught the problem midway, and just flushed as much as I could.

Thankfully, I did recover flavour and this is where I have a sense of the strain. Absolutely lovely musty, slightly sour, pungent herb smell. Sort of like White Widow or Black Indica. I am addicted! This is like a 6.5/10 just on that alone. I have another clone way down the line, and one in flower, so I am really pumped!

Potency was good, mostly sativa, stronger than the typical light flavour driven strains. It did not have the oomf to knock of any of the previous strong types, but I really liked the effects here.

So, I really enjoy the strain. I blew through the harvest because it was so small and I liked it so much. Overnuting is regrettable, but a learning curve - it was not a complete fatality. Look for future Super Silver Haze reviews.

This is my first review for Nirvana’s BlackJack. A mixed-bag experience, some good insight with a poor result. The main overarching factor was nutrient excess through soil amendment and then feeding. The details follow:

No problems germinating. Nice, strong growth through its life. This experience has given insight into the vigor of this strain. BlackJack came in just as I was dealing with pests; it sort of avoided the problem, but when damaged from treatment it could easily replace fan leaves quickly. Nice nutrient absorption. This plant also persisted through cold temperatures and a lack of furnace, I really took time to dial in my winter grow operation.

When things are going well you get excited, and I become impulsive, and so BlackJack went into flower with great expectations. With the temperatures being low, and such a streamlined rotation, the plant used up alot less soil amendment than expected. And, I just kept feeding my usual flower nutrient/nitrogen fade! In summer, or when I didn’t have excess amendment, I got away with mistakes. This time, not so much. Blackjack did survive, which was not the case with all my grows, but it was overvegged, i.e. excess nitrogen and nutrients gave way more leaf matter than you’d expect. So the buds were big leafy messes with very dark foliage. I flowered for nine weeks, Nirvana projects 8-9 weeks. After trimming all of it off and drying, I was left with barely any decent product (as indicated). This fact automatically skews the curing, tastes, potency, and density, therefore, I can’t really say I have a sense of anything but early life (which BlackJack seems very solid!).

Regardless, I would say there were smells of sweet and herb while growing. It took a long time before the taste and smells of the dried product really came out. Even then, its faint and barely beyond bland. When I do get the aroma and flavour it, its lovely, a deep, sweet, green with a decent woody or pine finish. But often, the less dense product is just totally neutral. There is a good chance this is on account of overnuting, as the smells while growing were not necessarily ultra strong. I also tried budwashing for the first time, and while I would like to blame that, it wouldn’t be fair either. Its clear trichomes remain on the bud and that would include flavonoids.

Potency seems totally unchanged with washing. It seems to have nice characteristics of both sativa and indica. I flowered for nine weeks, the end of their window, so I did confirm under loup there were many amber trichomes. I like couch lock as specifically what I look for, but much of that may have been on account of an extra week.

Visually, the final product is nice considering the amount of veg. After washing, everything appeared very crisp even under magnifying loup, and the texture is just phenomenal when grinding. It dried very fast, but not overly dried, and it pulverizes to a perfect particle size.

All in all, a harvest of 19 grams is not worth my time, but I can certainly guarantee is was on account of nutrients and environment. My faith in this strain or distributor hasn’t wavered in the slightest. I’ve quite enjoyed the small harvest both solo and more often as a mixer. I had successful clones featured in other diaries and so I am excited to rectify this!
