Sorry for the delay I been trimmin for so long. This was a crazy plant to grow I thought it would stay short and be more indica dominant but it turned into a leaner. This was my biggest plant height and weight wise the buds just kept stacking up and came out rock solid. It stunk like straight skunked fruit in bloom after the cure it's more woody and spicey with hints of citrus. My other one was deformed out of the gates but this one made up for it. Weight before samples was 314g. I'm pretty sure I topped this one around the 4th node.
This was an easy strain to grow, great yields with 290g and 136g, awesome mellow smoke, subtle but intriguing creamy vanilla scent and seemingly consistent. The nugs are rock solid and from the heads to the lowers very consistent. They were also easy to trim if you give a shit about that. Both plants were untrained for the most part aside from defoliation and a slight bend in the main stalk. My only complaint would be the time it took to mature and the little one randomly hit a speed bump and stopped growing right in the middle for some reason. I really enjoy the smoke tho and the feel of the nugs. It may vary from person to person but the high gets me mellow and relaxed but not so much where I cant continue on with my shit. I have been smoking this more than the others mostly because it doesnt make me anxious af all. It's not ridiculously potent I believe the avg. Thc content is around 18% on this one and that feels about right. I'd reccomend this to new growers and for those who are looking for some sort of medical related relief.
The Ryder is a very good strain in my opinion one of the best fastbuds has to offer. It grows vigorously into a large plant that produces an array of frosty, potent buds that are rock solid. It has a unique smell to it kind of spicey with a creamy scent mixed in. It is one of the stronger smelling strains I have grown and also one of my favorites on the nose. Weirdly the untrained plant yielded more than the topped one likely because of the deficiencies of the big one. The smoke is balanced, it doesnt bring you too far up or down and the balance can vary depending on when you decide to harvest. The buds came out 8/10 dense. The bud structure varied, the trained one came out 9/10 and the untrained one 7/10. I loved the blue and purple tint that came thru on the head nugs of the untrained one. I would recommend defoliation as the lowers were a little soft on one of them. It is still curing so if anything noticeable changes I will update as I've only smoked it twice. 3.5g was taken from each plant for sampling as trimming took forever it was difficult to keep everything together and organized and I gave some to a friend. I will be growing this one again at some point and would reccomend to anyone interested in the FB line up.
