I usually have better effects from focused cannabis genetics opposed to these sixth-generation hybrids that lack some of the benefits of their landrace ancestors
I am starting to get picky with the cannabis I use and consume. I thought having a hundred different options would be a good thing, but it’s not when so many strains are weird hybrids that I have to research on my phone while I’m standing at the counter at the marijuana dispensary. Where are all of the classic landrace sativas and indicas? My parents have told me stories about getting strains like Acapulco Gold, Columbian Gold, Thai Stick, Afghan Kush, and Hawaiian. These landrace strains have been used to make a variety of different hybrids that are well known to this day. Two examples are Blueberry and OG Kush, as they are both potent hybrid strains created out of crosses between various landrace phenotypes. The early hybrids have also been crossed with one another to such a degree that we have an exceedingly diverse array of cannabis genetics in 2021. You’d think it was satire to see a cannabis strain in 2021 called “Kitchen Sink,” but it’s genuinely real. I can imagine that the grower who developed it threw whatever he had available in phenotypes at the mixture that became Kitchen Sink. Since I haven’t tried it, I can’t dismiss it outright; but other strains like Purple Punch and Member Berry were less impressive. I’d rather have a Blueberry cannabis strain like Blue Dream or Skunk Berry. I usually have better effects from focused cannabis genetics opposed to these sixth-generation hybrids that lack some of the benefits of their landrace ancestors. At the end of the day, I just want quality cannabis regardless of its specific origins. I just happen to prefer landrace cannabis over modern hybrids.
