Outdoor season may be over, but we are still getting a smaller number of clones as needed for our indoor growers! We get our clones and seedlings from an awesome Northern California cultivation company called Dark Heart Nursery. Their website has tons of really useful information on their strains as well as growing tips and other cultivation resources.

Here are the available strains as of 11.30.2020:

  • Premium Clones ($20): Alien OG, Black Jack, Vanilla Frosting

Alien OG (Premium Clone)

Alien OG was originally developed by Swerve of Cali Connection. It is a cross between Tahoe OG, which is believed by some to be the original kush, and Alien Kush which stems from Kyle Kushman’s Las Vegas Purple Kush. The light green buds have a covering of red or orange hairs and should be airy.

  • SUGGESTED MEDICAL USE: Helpful for those suffering from glaucoma, joint pain, arthritis, muscle tension, migraines, multiple sclerosis, and attention deficit disorders.

Black Jack (Premium Clone)

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.

Vanilla Frosting (Premium Clone)

An improvement on what we’ve seen coming from the common various Gelato lines over the past few years, this strain steers away from the short squat flowers of Gelato and heads to the skies. With hybrid vigor and THC production as a priority these clones will pack an acre, a greenhouse, 10k sq footer or even a backyard like nobody’s business without the finicky growth habits of OG. Strong stalks leading to less breakage from the heavy dense buds that will fill your 1/8 jars or pipes for days…months, years. Huge, proud trichome covered buds with perfect gaps between the nodes lead to easy hand or machine trimming. An uncanny sweet vanilla nose at first followed by a straightforward fuel finish and often a 25%+ THC producer.
