Well I harvested one freedom 35 plant a few days back. I had 3 of the 11 beans that auto'd on me under a 24 hour photoperiod, so I threw em under a 1000 watt hps and hoped for the best.
The Doc claims the strain finishes in 35 days but can be taken to 45 days for full flavour and potency. I took mine to 40 days and chopped it as the resin glands were mature. I should say that the plant could have been chopped at 35 days if growing commercially. I think some potency and bud density would suffer. I also harvested some at 45 days and seen no difference between 40 to 45 days, however you really see a difference between 35 days and 40 days. I flushed the last two weeks which is great to save a little $ on nutes. You really only give it 2-3 feeds and that's it. BE CAREFUL WITH NUTES ON THIS ONE!! I gave it half strength to start it and it really showed signs of over fert.
SOME NUGS OF FREEDOM 35
NOTE : These results are based on an auto pheno. I will also post another smoke/harvest report on one that flowered based on photoperiod of 12/12 rather than 24.
Smoked in a clean screen brand new pipe, and also smoked another gram in a joint after a 3 day cure.
Potency - 8/10
Taste - 10/10 Sweet, chocolate taste
Smell - 8/10 Musky with some pepper spicy smell
Bud density - 7/10
Yield - 6.5/20 - Yielded 17 grams dried weight on 12 inch plant
High - 9/10 Head high, feels like a sativa smoke
duration - 9/10 3 hours
Harshness - 8/10 This smoke is very clean/smooth and easy going down the throat
Side effects - 8/10 Munchies and very social. I noticed myself thinking more with this one
Medicinal quality - 7/10 Would be great for depression or social disorders. Wouldn't recommend smoking late at night
Overall - 8/10
This is a wonderful smoke that I think every grower should experience. It's not often that a plant can finish so fast and offer dense nugs that are frosted with resin. Everything the Doc claims about this variety seems to be true. Although I will state that having three plants auto was a big letdown, especially for cloning, so be careful and watch your pheno's. I recommend this one guys.
Sorry about the low quality video. It's dark and I just got done smoking a one gram joint. Words just don't come out right hahaha. Hope you all enjoyed.
