Growing it
Normal
It took me almost 5 months to write this review. I don’t know where to start from. Well, I always wanted to grow a legendary sativa like this, but I felt I wasn’t really ready to do it. I preferred to grow other strains and try new growing mediums before, and that’s exactly what I did. And because I don’t like ordinary and “easy” things, I wanted to put myself to the limits and try something really hard and never tried before (by me): growing the legendary Silver Haze from Sensi Seeds in ScrOG using a coco coir medium, filling all the grow room (1m x 1m) with one plant only. Yes, that’s what I did.

In general, I can say I’m very happy with the results, except for one thing: Advanced Nutrients. I’m sad because they burned many fan leaves on last weeks, and this because of a misunderstanding with reported dosages on bottles (which, I later discovered, are calculated following American growing standards with 1000W HPS lights). The problem is that Advanced Nutrients, with their PH-PPM perfect formula, tells you NOT to adjust PPMs of the solution because the reported value from your pen will be affected by many other components besides dissolved fertilizer in the water (eg. pH buffers, humic and fulvic acid, amino acids, etc...). They say you should start from 1/4 of the reported dosage, and increase that value a bit a bit until you reach full strength. That’s not the way I like to work, and that’s why I’ll never use their nutrients again. I’ll choose a brand of nutrients that makes you easily manage PPMs instead. But let’s talk about something happier now: the plant itself.

The hype is real here. Let’s start by saying that those burned leaves didn’t ruin any final buds. Yay! The only concern I had about this growth was linked to Silver’s flowering stretch. I didn’t know the strain, and couldn’t guess how the stretch would have been. I only knew she could become 3x bigger during the first month of bloom. But if you don’t know when she’s gonna stop, what do you do? Stop bending, without filling up all the ScrOG grid, or you keep bending, hoping she will not stop while she’s still under the grid? Hard choice. Really hard. That’s why everyone says you firstly have to know the strain, before trying ScrOG. I’ve been lucky here, and yes, I opted for option B: keep bending! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

The plant, as you see, is strong, and I’d say even tolerant enough to nutes. My case was a bit extreme, so maybe a skunk would have suffered too, lol. She likes topping, and reacts to it very very quickly, as well as super cropping or LST. During flowering, you can keep bending for at least 3.5/4 weeks since the day you switch to 12/12. If you do the switch and are sure that you don’t have light leaks on dark hours, you’ll start seeing pistils after one week (with temperatures similar to mine). During flowering, you don’t have to worry about size of your buds, since they’ll get A LOT bigger only on last two weeks. Believe me!

Let’s now talk about the most interesting part: buds and their effects. If you touch them, they leave you a tropical mouth watering smell on your fingers. The smell is a combination of tropical fruits like pineapple and mango, and peach. I love it. When you smoke her, you keep tasting those flavors if you vaporize at 180C, but if you increase to 200C, you don’t taste that citrus hint anymore (or maybe just a little less).

The effect is the true masterpiece of this strain. No paranoia. Couch lock is absent, but if you decide to relax on your sofa, or bed, you’ll be in the perfect location to start thinking and contemplating about your life and many many many other things. Thoughts are moving faster here. No joke. You’re creative like never before, and happy. You don’t think about problems. You like everything. And you start appreciating how nice moving slow and focusing on every little thing you do is. Wow. Almost 5 months to create this wonderful thing. I don’t think I’ll never find another strain like this. Someone tells Jack Herer could be better, who knows? But this is now my starting point on what a real sativa should be. Nice one, Sensi Seeds.

Update: added bud photos after 3 months of curing in the jars!

Stress Killer Automatic CBD
Resistance
Strong
Growing it
Easy
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!
