This plant is the result of everything I learned since I signed up on Grow Diaries. Autoflowering strain, topping, cropping, LST, coco coir, automatic watering system. That was pretty fun, but also hard to do. It was hard because, as an auto, she had a pre-defined life cycle, and all that training had to be made with not enough recovering time between sessions. By the way, I got a big surprise here. Until the last defoliation I couldn’t see how many buds I got there. And I didn’t expect those buds could increase their size that much in just a week. This time I even did a proper flush and let the medium dry up before harvesting. Because of the size of the plant, I had to split harvest into 3 days. But look what I got: 133.2 grams! I’m so happy about this result. I was expecting something like 70 grams, but I doubled that value! Since I tried some buds from the net, it should be even more than this, though.

This strain is a new generation auto from Royal Queen Seeds. It’s not one of the old ones with 30% ruderalis like many of their other auto strains (I think they should update them decreasing ruderalis percentage), and I have to say that it’s a very strong one. Nutes resistant, or even nutes lover. Will even love hard training. I messed up with the PPM since I had no time to manage it properly, and I got a little overfeeding in the last weeks, as soon as I added Overdrive to the reservoir. What I mean is that PPM has been over 4000 for like all the cycle, following Advanced Nutrients dosage (4ml/L of Connoisseur A+B and 2ml/L of all the other additives). That’s the kind of strength I’m talking about. It was my first time managing irrigations with a reservoir and a water pump, and I think it’s been a life changing experience. It allowed me to save much time, and helped me going on vacation for 10 days with almost no worries (just some salts accumulation in the pot during those days as she started sucking a lot of water, not allowing runoff to come out anymore). That system helps you, but you still have to be there. Because coco coir is good, but it requires a proper maintenance.

The Stress Killer Automatic is a mix of Lemon Haze and Juanita La Lagrimosa. She doesn’t smell like lemon, but she definitely has a sweet, candy-like taste. She reminded me of the AK47 auto from RQS I tried some years ago.

Talking about the effect, I think this strain does exactly what they say about it. I mean, you smoke, wait some minutes, and start feeling light in the head. It’s a bit stronger than other CBD strains I’ve tried, and even if you can feel a bit of indica on it, Stress Killer is much more on the sativa side. It’s not so strong, so you can do whatever you wanna do, but if you vape it, just don’t go over 185C or you’ll start feeling a bit groggy. 200C is the best temperature to get everything it has to offer, but for daytime I prefer 180C or 185C. By the way it works nice to help you take life less seriously, and help positive thoughts flowing in your head. But, as always, weed is not a remedy against problems. If you’re a bit stressed, that’s ok and it works great, but if you have bigger problems, I think weed can’t do much to help you solve them. Higher THC strains will even do worse in case of bad trips.

In general I’m so happy about this strain. It’s not the best one I’ve tried to do activities (Royal Highness, to me, with her clear mind experience, is definitely the best one out there), but that’s very nice to relax after work or an intense activity, or just to remove some light stresses coming from discussions or some negative thoughts/overthinking. Thank you Royal Queen Seeds, and especially @James!

Welcome back everybody! Another successful journey with this CBD Crack. It’s been very fun to grow her. Tried topping on autos for the first time, and it worked like a charm. The fun fact? I got 155g wet in a 5L pot! I got far less with my Gorilla in her 18L pot. It’s all about training! This strain has been amazing. Very strong, and will tolerate nutrients very easily (even some error like overfeeding). With this one I tried some experiments, like giving organic bloom boosters together with mineral ones, and it worked great. I could only give her less of that, because some leaves suffered a bit in the late stage.

I tried a small bud from those hanging on the net, and the effect is amazing. It’s mellow, but you feel positive, happy, and a little relaxed at first. After like 20 minutes, THC loses some (it’s still there!) of its initial potency, and opens the stage for the CBD, which will make you feel very relaxed! The scent is still not so much mango, but it reminds me to that smell. Will see after some curing! Thank you for following this growth and see you later with a new one! Cheers

Update: 37.2g from a 5L pot is amazing!

There we go. Welcome back buds! 18 weeks from seed, and this is the end of 2017 growth cycle.

Royal Highness has been a good girl. As I said many times, this was a density growth, or, better, a cycle intended to grow many different strains with no expectations about the yield, due to the limited space.

I never topped or trainer her, and she grew up partially in the shadow of nearest and bigger plants. She came out like a Christmas tree, with a big cola on the top, and smaller colas on lower branches. The yield is definitely a lot under the expectations, but that’s not a problem since I just wanted to try the strain. I say this because I’ll be the only person smoking all these strain. And I don’t smoke a lot, so yeah, you can guess how long I’ll take to smoke them all.

Just one thing about final weeks of flowering: I don’t know why, but she automatically cropped her top cola. I initially thought it could be mold, but it was really a voluntary crop. So strange!

Her smell is so creamy and makes me remember the AK47 auto by RQS I’ve grown some years ago. I tried a sample bud some weeks ago when THC levels were still low, so I’m not writing a smoke report now. Will do it as soon as buds are ready.
