9-10 weeks flowering
High yield (appr. 400-500 gr/M²)
Most of you know by now that seedism is a collective of breeders and growers from all over the world.This collaboration of different breeders offers us the unique opportunity to work with an incredibly diverse selection of Cannabis strains.Where most breeders will have their private library of genetics, they are still limited only to the strains they have gathered during their lifetime.
During our years at the Cannabis College in Amsterdam we quickly realized that if we wanted to create unique strains with enough diversity to stand out of the largely homogenous genepool already available through most shops, we needed to come up with a completely different approach to enriching our genepool. I mentioned the Cannabis College because this is where I not only hooked up with both Genefinder and Filmstar Gardener, the two guys I started Seedism with. It is also the College where we met literally thousands of growers and aspiring breeders from which we convinced a few to join us. This is where the foundation of the Seedism genepool originated, and our quest to create one of the most diverse Cannabis genepools began.
About four years ago we had the opportunity to expand to California, which initially was a no-go for us due to the bad history the USA had towards our favorite herb.
But luckily not all of us were intimidated by the idea of growing Cannabis under Uncle Sams watchful eye’s, and Seedism USA had the green light and we made the trip over the Atlantic to arrive in Happy Valley California.
Everybody knows these days that there are a lot of very tasty, and very potent strains coming from California, but nobody realized how hard it would be to create seed stock with them. Ever since they adapted a more sensible approach towards medicinal Marijuana in the United States the amount of growers grew at an unbelievable pace.
Like other cultural differences there is also a big difference in how they grow their medicine, having such a better climate creates a much larger outdoor community which is accompanied with a completely different way of growing. Especially when it comes to seeds, these are not legally available yet so people must be more creative to produce their own seeds every year, and an army of thousands of fledgeling breeders was born.
This is why now there is such a massive amount of strains available that are created in the USA, although most strains have their roots in “Dutch” genetics.
Our breeder has been running a medicinal farm there now for about four years, during which he has found the biggest flaw in the American genepool, a lack of stabilized genetics. Most growers there don’t have much chance and/or knowledge to work on a strain in a way that will ensure that same strain to keep its phenotypical traits for multiple generations
Many strains we found and experimented with showed too many different phenotypes to be reliable, especially the strains that they refer to as “Kush”, which we are still trying to stabilize into a consistent strain.
There are absolutely wonderful strains in the States, and now we have also recreated most of our original genepool over there which we are using to create stronger generations of hybrids. Moving our library to California has proven to be a very successful move, with our genepool consisting of mostly stable breeding stock we could achieve much more controlled breeding then before with incredible results.
Seedism has finally released the first strain from our California branch through our exclusive UK distributor “Pure Sativa”, and should be available through most UK shops very soon.
Hippie Killer is an hybrid between the Über-potent White Widow and a LovePotion that has been kept alive by an American grower for many years because of its high Cannabinoid profile and exeptional sweet taste.
Hippie Killer is by nature a Sativa dominant plant and will show certain characteristics common to Sativa strains. The bud structure is typical to a Sativa dominant hybrid with large calyxes and more elongated buds.
The flowering time is between 9 and 10 weeks, and I would not grow this strain too tall before I start flowering due to an height increase in the first two weeks.
The Hippie Killer is a very good producer and will have a very high yield when flowering her the full ten weeks, allow the resin gland to swell to their maximum capacity and their oil will create a much higher weight then when harvest at nine weeks. She tends to get medium tall, very similar to our BLZBud, and the longer you vegetate them the taller and bushier they tend to get.
When growing between 4-5 plants on a 3 foot square area you only need them to vegetate untill they are about 2-2.5 foot high with as much internodes as you can achieve, unless you have topped them earlier which meand you could grow them up to three ft.
In a sea of green you are better of growing them to maximum two feet or they will have to fight for space.
I personally tend to use a bit less food than recommended by the manufactorers, and the Hippie Killer can handle that without any significant loss of yield.
But superchargers can be just as happy with this strain because you could increase the yield when following the strict supercharging guidelines.
The Hippie Killer is in the higher yielding catagory, but that does not rectify why we have the word “Killer” in the name, this is where the Cannabinoid profile needs to be discussed.
This unique combination of our White Widow and LovePotion hybrid has a quick effect on your muscles and might be a bit unexpected for those with a lower tolerance for high THC and CBD.
There is a very strong sedative effect at first where most will experience the well known couch-lock effect, this is thanks to the White Widow mother we used for its intense potency and stability. The relaxation will last for quite a few hours, as this is a long lasting effect with the Hippie Killer, although it is a very euphoric high with a chance for the giggles every now and then.
Just don’t expect to be going anywhere soon.
The Hippie Killer is one of those products that comes with a warning not to operate motorized vehicles and/or machinery, due to drowsiness and the effect it has on how you experience time and space.
So make sure that you first try this one when sitting down.
