Cannabis Strain Review: Channel

“Channel”

There is an old saying that the children of famous people are usually talentless. But not in this case. This is one of those cases, when the child of two celebrities has become famous all on its own. “Chanel” was brought about by crossing the award-winning “Big Bud” with a veteran of the cannabis community and award-winning cannabis strain “Skunk“. Yes, that same “Skunk” that made a big splash in the 1980s. I don’t think “Channel” has ever won a Cannabis Cup, but the strain does have several notable awards and recognitions.

The flowers have great “bag appeal”. (they look even better in the jar) Buds are big and dense, and are covered in crystals. Very frosty looking nugs. The color is a mixture of light green and pale orange, with streaks of red and purple.

Once you light up, the taste is heavy and aromatic. You will remember the old school smell of kind bud. That dense, heavy skunky smell of your childhood marijuana adventures.

Once you smell your childhood, the effects will start to roll in like the ocean waves. This famous product of celebrities porking is very potent, and will hit you hard with each wave. It’s Indica dominant genetics will relax you and help you sleep. It is a great strain for people with insomnia or that have trouble calming down.

Cannabis Strain Information: Cherry Bomb

Both of my seeds came up, and are looking lovely. So, I figured I would give you some basic info on the strain. I was looking for something sweet and great tasting for some variety, and I decided that the Cherry Bomb from Bomb Seeds is the way to go. Cherry Bomb is a Indica-dominant Hybrid, developed by Bomb Seeds by crossing they’re monster yielding Big Bomb with a unique and fruity Cherry variety. Because it is an Indica dominant, the plants grow short and bushy, and stay at a low to medium height, which is just perfect for my small space. The THC content is extremely high around 25%. I am not sure what the CBD content is exactly. The yield is also high. It can be grown indoor or outdoor. Indoors it will take 8 to 10 weeks to flower. Outdoor the harvest comes in late September early October. Because of its Indica genes, the effect is couch locking and relaxing, very sedating.

The Origins of “Channel” Cannabis Strain Genetics

“Channel” – Day 64 of flowering

#cannabis #weed #strain #genetics #grow #journal #origin

July 13th, 2018 – Day 64 of flowering for “Channel”. I Found out some interesting details about the origins of this particular strain. You remember I was telling you all along, that this strain was a Champion. I was not lying. This baby took the first place in the Indica category, in Barcelona, at the 2008 Spannabis Cup. Two years later in 2010, she took the first place for the Best Resin, also in Barcelona. After the big exposure, there were several other, smaller awards. But nothing as major as the Cannabis Cup. Anyway, I was looking into it, and looked up the origins of the genetics behind this tasty champion. It turns out that she is a proud offspring of two excellent hybrid strains. She is a cross of Big Bud and Skunk. ( Now I see shere she gets her smell ) Although she does looks very much like an Indica., She is actually a Hybrid. I guess there are no true Indicas left out there anywhere. But she’s definitely an Indica dominant Hybrid. According to her plant profile,  she usually takes anywhere from 55 to 65 days to flower. I am going to push it up to 70, just to make sure. She is also sporting a decent, 20% THC level, and above average yield.

Cannabis Strain Review: Death Stomper

This is another new crossbreed from the Michigan medicinal land. “Death Stomper” came about by crossing the award winning “Deathstar” with one of the early day Cannabis Cup winners “Champagne“. The result is an incredibly potent strain that brings the best of both worlds. Big, dense buds and large yields together with a sedating, mind numbing high are sure to make this celebrity child famous all on it’s own.

The flowers have great “bag appeal”. Buds are big and dense, and incredibly frosty. They are light green in color, with streaks of purple and orange.

Once you light up, you taste the forrest with all it’s sweet and piny and woody mixes.

Once you taste the forrest, it’s time to relax. And believe me, this offspring of the Evil Empire will put you on your ass. Perfect for people who have trouble sleeping, or relaxing in general.

I don’t know the exact THC and CBD content, but it is some potent stuff.

Cannabis Strain Review: Grease Monkey

So about this Grease Monkey. I am not 100% sure what the origins of the genetics are on this particular one, I was not able to find it in any of the major seed banks. (Although I have to be honest with you I wasn’t looking very hard). I was first introduced to this particular strain by my Michigan connection, and immediately recognized a future or maybe even a past Cannabis Cup winner. (It would be awesome if it was like a 1990s Cannabis Cup winner).

The first thing you notice when you pick up a bag of this crazy chronic is the unique coloration. The color is very pale pinkish purple with some frosty tan hues. There are some very purple looking buds every now and again. And you can often find purple and pink and white mixed like a swirl. It’s crazy looking. Exotic even.

The second thing you notice is the very unique taste. Thin, fruity, almost sour like, and definitely one of a kind. Does not leave a nasty after taste like some of the other hybrids. (I’m assuming that it’s a hybrid because you get a very uplifting head high in addition to the body couch-lock buzz)

The last thing you notice is the incredibly strong buzz. The high is strong and almost narcotic. The effects are relaxing and very couch locking. Although creativity has been known to spike while smoking this incredible dank.

It also helps that this particular strain has an incredibly high THC and CBD levels. So yeah it gets you fucked up. For real! This is an excellent candidate for medicinal marijuana patients, and because of the high CBD content it is great for extracting oils and concentrates.

This particular strain is in my Top 5 for the best tasting list, and my Top 5 most potent list. And for good reasons. I am hoping to eventually get a clone from my Michigan people.

Cannabis Strain Review: Cookies Kush

Ohh, you know how I really like tasty weed. Well this is definitely one for the tasty column. Introducing: Cookies Kush ! This delicious marijuana strain comes from crossing an award winning “Girl Scout Cookies” with an award winning “Rolex OG Kush“. The result is a hard hitting Indica with a great, sweet taste, and big dense buds.

I have to be honest, this is definitely in the top 5 on my Tastiest List. Don’t get me wrong, this is NO Blue Dream. But it’s pretty damn close.  This amazing strain is a true Indica.  It took 1st Prize Cannabis Cup HTCC 2014 in Amsterdam, so you know it is the cream of the crop.  It sports a fairly high 24% THC level, and a 1.2% CBD level, which makes it an ideal candidate for medicinal uses.

The flowers themselves have top shelf bag appeal. Buds are dense and coated with a generous layer of trichomes. The coloring is light green with traces of white and orange.  The taste is sweet, chocolaty with a small whiff of mint.
