How is everyone doing? I am a patient, a breeder, and a consultant to many friends in the MMJ business. It is amazing how fast new strains are developed these days. When I check out some of the menus up in Denver and north, I cannot believe some of the hybrid meds available. It's like Attitude released the seed on the 1st and today is the 2nd.....how can there be crosses of those strains? Because its really been longer than one day and there is no care put into breeding. When I went to see Phish this summer in Denver, I had to hit 6 MMC's before I could find good, not great, buds. All these double diesel this and and diesel that strains sound great but someone doesn't care how well the buds work for medicating their patients. Otherwise they would look like this:
I know, as a breeder, most people do not have the time or care it takes to make killer, consistent seed. It took over a year to choose the males and females to breed with. I have F1's of many, but the process has just begun. I have many plants to grow and a limited plant count, so it takes a little time to find a female with all the traits I want and even longer to find a male. The male dusts the female and gets back crossed to the mother female. Once both of these are grown to seed, I will choose a female F2. This takes longer than choosing the F1 because there is more variation as I search for the male and female plants that best represents the F1's. On the other side, I have my BX1, which I will choose a male and female from, as well. Each set will be inbred. I will also cross the male BX1 and male F2 with the mother. Finally at this stage, all the plants grown will be close in phenotypes and have extreme "fur" on the buds. This takes about two years to complete. I cannot offer my seeds to you but I can tell you how to produce your very own, alien monster.
Onto my topic:
I have very bad back spasms due to back issues I have had for the last 13 years. Before I start my next breeding project, I want to know what strains are the best, in your opinion, for muscle spasms and pain caused by sciatica. I don't need basic info on strains. Tell me 4 or 5 strains and give a detailed description of feeling and how it helps, for each one you list, please. I am not interested in anything outside the scope of my question, as I am trying to respect the board rules.
I really appreciate the time you take because my goal is to make sure CO becomes a well known state for having the best breeders who are serious about organic, medical marijuana. I will do this with your help, a little bit of time and a lot of love. I don't know release details and I m not sure if I can talk about that on here, but i will talking with a few MMC's and wholesalers. If I work with an MMC, the info about the seeds will be found on that page and I will put up a link for it.
Another side note.....
How do feel about the seed companies in CO? Are they meeting our standards or are they breeding old, washed up strains that no one wants to grow? Let me know because I haven't had a need to buy seeds in a long time.
