Black Jack (Sativa)

Black Jack is a heavy yielding sativa-dominant hybrid, that produces large dense flowers with big calyxes covered in crystals. Good for both indoor and outdoor grows alike. This plant stretches like a classic sativa and will require topping for indoor and a lot of vertical space. Easy to grow yet needs proper care of defoliating and trellising as it has the tendency to get top heavy.  With a strong, delicious flavor with long lasting effects from high-levels of THC, Black Jack is an industry favorite among medical patients.

A cross between DJ Short’s Blueberry (indica) and Santa Cruz Haze (sativa), Blue Dream quickly rose to become a staple in the West Coast grower and dispensary communities. With 50-100% stronger yields than most other strains, Blue Dream produces huge dense buds packed heavily with trichomes, and covered with a fine coat of light orange hairs. With a healthy balance of full-body relaxation and mental stimulation, Blue Dream is enjoyed by new comers and veterans alike.

Skywalker OG (Hybrid)

Often confused with the indica-dominate variety called Skywalker without the OG part; a resinous plant, Skywalker OG is known for providing well above average yields of hash due to high concentrations or trichromes. The smell and taste of Skywalker OG is something that most Kush-lovers will fawn over.

Sour Diesel (Sativa)

The plant itself is a fairly lanky one that tends to show lots of fox tailing when finished.

General Information & History

  • BREEDER: unknown
  • TYPE: Sativa Dominant
  • GENETICS: Mass Super Skunk x Original Diesel Or ChemDawg x Mass Super Skunk/NL (exact lineage disputed)
  • STORY: Sour Diesel has a storied past and there is some argument over how it was proliferated and who brought it from where. Sour Diesel is related to other phenos we’ve come to love; Chemdog and OG Kush. Some rumors say it all started in Colorado then a pheno was taken to the East Coast where it was renamed Chemdog. Then, as the story goes, Chemdog was taken to Cali and renamed OG Kush.

Growing Information & Patient Expectations

  • FLOWERING TIME: 10-12 weeks
  • YIELD: Heavy
  • DIFFICULTY: Easy
  • GROWING TIPS: Low maintenance makes for an easy grow. However, this one is not a variety for those of you trying to grow like ninjas. Sour D is almost impossible to hide without any type of high quality filtration system as one carbon filter won’t do the trick. These plants are possibly some of the most stank and skunk smelling plants indoors.
  • SCENT: Pungent blend of fuel, skunk, citrus, and spice
  • FLAVOR: Sweet yet musky, lemony zest, fuel undertones
  • EFFECTS: Uplifting, psychotropic, racy. A rise in energy is the initial onset then the buzz settles into a strange state of relaxation, one that may be accompanied by a dizzying cerebral high.
  • SUGGESTED MEDICAL USE: Nerve pain, muscle pain, appetite loss, edema, epilepsy, fibromyalgia

Tangie (Sativa)

Tangie is a strain made by crossing California Orange and Skunk-1. This strain is a popular choice in Amsterdam and is spreading elsewhere. Tangie is a remake of sorts of the popular version of Tangerine Dream that was sought-after in the 1990s. The citrus heritage of Tangie is the most evident in its refreshing tangerine aroma. As a plant, Tangie grows best outside, producing sticky buds that provide euphoric yet relaxed effects

General Information & History

  • TYPE: Sativa Dominant
  • GENETICS: California Orange x Skunk-1

Easy Pot – Autoflowering Plants

Dark Heart Nursery’s Easy Pot is an autoflowering cannabis plant, grown from feminized seedlings, that stands roughly 15-18 inches in height and is surrounded by a “tomato cage” for proper support. Easy Pot plants are sold in a 2.5 gallon pot where they will remain for the duration of their life. This means they do not need to be transplanted. They will start flowering shortly after you bring them home and will be ready to harvest in around 40-60 days. Autoflowers are known to be hardier and less finicky than regular cannabis plants, which makes them perfect for beginner growers!

Here’s why Easy Pot is great for beginners, hobby growers and anyone interested in growing cannabis:

  • Fun to grow! Each of these vigorous plants will produce beautiful flowers in a wide variety of conditions. However, the better the conditions, the better your result!
  • Just add water: Soil mix is pre-charged with slow release fertilizer that provides complete plant nutrition every time you water.
  • Proven genetics: Stable seeds from award winning breeders means you’ll have a healthy plant that will outperform your expectations.
  • Attractive: Pot design is attractive and modern, and fits right into your space. This is a must-have garden varietal!

Tips For Growing Easy Pot

Autoflowering plants do not rely on photoperiods to trigger their flowering cycle like traditional cannabis plants do. In order to produe healthy yields they need a sufficient amount of light during their lifecycle. Depending on the time of year your autoflower plant can do well both indoors and outdoors.

During the spring and summer months a well lit windowsill or sunroom could do the trick indoors. Outdoors, any well lit area of your outdoor garden would suffice. During the fall and winter months the weather can be a bit cold and could affect the overall yield of your harvest. During this time, keeping your plant under light indoors would likely produce the best results.

Sol Mate

A Feminized Autoflower that will put out the weight and the trichome production rivals indoor flower even when grown outdoors! The taste is like nothing we’ve seen in photoperiod type cannabis, reminding us of ripe cherimoya and even durian with the fuel after-burn. Sol Mate Auto will get you through the tough times whether you’re a hobbyist wanting to grow in an easily manageable way or need a big crop to come in early without the hassle of light deprivation.
