Red Mandarine F1 Fast Version®

Growing it
Easy
So now that the harvest has dried properly under about 55% humidity for about 10 days and than cured in big jars with about 62% humidity (still curing now) the result is better than expected.

The smell is really great. It smells like citric fruits, sweet and tasty with some pine undertone. Strong smell is present, tight jars are recommended.:sweat_smile:

The taste is also very good in my opinion. It´s far away from the typical street-weed that smells only like haze or skunk.
It is like some rasped mandarines or oranges skunk taste, very interesting and a nice alternative to the standard stuff.

The effect when smoking is just what expected from a nearly 50/50 hybide.
Some stoned and some high.

At first the high dominates and provides an energetic rush with some creativity. You really don´t want so sit around, you want to move and get things done the first hour.
After about an hour the stoned becomes more dominant and wants you to relax and enjoy some good music or reading a book, but without getting tired.

When vaped the effects depends on the vaping temperatures.
You can say that the high is more present under 175°C and with raising temps the stoned is much more present.

At the highest vaping point, about 210°C you will feel much more stoned and couch-lock feelings as when smoked.

So this hybride is a really nice plant for me and my needs as I can control the effects by vaping in different temperatures. So I can use it for daytime and nighttime.

The dry weight was okay for three plants, about 40g of high quality buds came out of each plant.

Not to forget the sugar leaves and trim that I collected.
It was about 60g of trim that I used to make bubble-bag hash.
I got about 8g of mid-to high quality hash with a good taste and a texture like clay, soft and smooth.

One of my most beloved strains. Easy to grow, good resistance, the smoke is like lemon with haze and a nice undertone of fruits.
Good for daytime use, as it is not so strong but relaxing and uplifting. Lots of CBD is a nice add to the flow of the THC.
The good thing is you are able to control yourself when high so you can still do your daily work.

This strain was not the easiest one to grow but also it was not too hard to keep them alive and healthy. Unfortunately I didn´t found the best way to treat them right for better results.

But as I am still a beginner with this strain I am happy with the result. About 100g out of 2 Plants is more than I expected to get. Will do another grow with this strain and give them a better training, I am sure there is much more potential when everything is done right.

The smell is really great, a nice combination of fruity smell with gasoline undertone. Great to smoke after 6 weeks of curing.

The trim and sugar leaves got me a good amount to work with for making some bubble bag hash.

This seems to be a really nice strain for hybrid-lovers who want to smoke a gassy and fruity strain for daytime and nighttime use.

After curing for several weeks the taste is really good, so much to discover here.

Sure it smells like weed, but with fruity and sweet notes like candy and berries.
The taste is premium when consumed pure in a vaporizer or a water pipe, but also a great taste in combination with "real leaves", some smoking stuff without any tobacco.
The effect is like promised, a good relaxing feeling with no couch-lock and also some euphoric and uplifting creative effect. Nice balance to enjoy over day and evenings.

Harvest was really much buds, she´s a XXL lady. Trip is typically northern lights like, not much high but lots of stoned. Nearly a couch lock for me, very relaxing, good for chilling with music. Taste is good, but too much afghani for me, maybe depending on phenos. I prefer the NL taste.

El Patron
Resistance

Growing it
Normal
After 11 days drying was mostly done, so i trimmed one plant at first to test curing. Humidity settled to 68% so I gave them two more dayd drying in the dark at about 18°C and 50% humidity.

After that I reached about 64% without and 62% humidity with bovedas.
The other 3 plants went into jars untrimmed as I went sick. One week later I trimmed the other three plants and got about 210g dried "el patron". They are now curing for at least 4 weeks, but most of it will cure for minimum 10 weeks as I don´t need much at one time.
After now 2 weeks the smell changed a lot. Now you can get much more taste out of these buds. The smell is now lots of haze combined with woody and herbal components, maybe oak-wood.

The budy are really frosty and very tasteful when vaped or smoked.

As I prefer vaping I tried some in the pax 3 and the crafty. Best taste at about 180°C in the crafty, there you´ll get most taste.

For the turn, at 170 to 175°C it is a maximum head trip. Very energetic and euphoric high but very strong and lasts for about 2 hours before softening. Me personally had some problems to speak properly at the first two sessions, that hard it hit me.
At about 190°C the trip is also powerful, but less energetic and more chilling and relaxing high with some stoned effects. But also nice uplifting high. With some good music ( I recommend Nightwish ) this is some awesome stuff to enjoy. Just now I´m in this special mood and listening to Élan by Nightwish writing this test and couldn´t be happier.

About growing them:
First I learned is that they aren´t very hungry when it comes to nutrition. For my organic nutrition line I first used recommendation of the manufacturer, but that wasd too much for them. Next time I wil try half dose until they show signs of undernutrition.
They aren´t fast and high growers, they stayed relatively small under topping and main-lining. I wonder what would have happended without any training. I am sure there is much more potential in yield than my result of about 330g/m². I only feared the height as I think they are more on the sativa side and I didn´t want to risk getting plants that reaches over 130cm in height. But with that training no one got over 90 cm of height.

Until now I found no single seed in any buds.
When it comes to phenos, I can´t really make a difference between them except for the one with the doubled pistils. She got the smallest amount of dried weed, about 12g less than the other ones in average. But the taste is mostly the same, also the turn.

Overall It was a nice and interesting grow, I´ve learned a lot about this strain. The smoke is nice and tasteful, the effect is what I expected but stronger.

I´m not disappointed, no, I am very happy about it. :grin:

She survived mildew and pest, never stopped to build up buds, fought against massive heat and is now ready to dry.
When all is done I tell you about the trip.
Edit: Wow, what a great taste. Never thought it would taste so good. Trip is mostly stoned, nearly couch lock.

Nice trip, goes straight into head and after a while into the whole body. Grown under massive summer heat, sometimes about 45°C in Glasshouse. She did really well for tose temps. Resisted thripse with some help of neem-oil.
Could have turned out much better with moderate temperatures, but Im happy how that grow turned out.

So this grow was so much fun. Easy to germinate, easy to handle. They told me when they wanted nutrition, they had a nice and strong fruity smell along the flowering stage. They never had any problems. I tried to hold them small as i didn´t knew how much they will stretch. They ended with an average height about 70cm. For an organic grow i am happy of 1,2g per Watt.

So this strain is definitely for daytime use, very powerful high and euphoric and funny trip. Grew higher than expected, over 190cm tall, lots of dense buds and lots of frost on it. Got ready for harvest early november, a little bit too late for my climate. I had at least about 5% of moldy buds, but thats okay for having night temperatures of about 3°C and humidity of 90% at night.
Worth a try if you like mostly sativas.

Went better than expected. Grew small but dense and with lots of leaves and buds. Very compact plant. Curing in glass for about 10 weeks. :grin:
Edit: tested some cured buds, what can I say? Very powerful and long-lasting mix of stoned and high. Taste is great after curing, definitely worth waiting to be cured.
