Strain review:
Doctor’s Choice #1

LEGEND:

Everything has a beginning. The strain which starts the seedbank is Doctor’s Choice #1. The genetics come from Lowryder (the first in the world autoflower from its father Joint Doctor), Jack Herer (named after the Emperor of Hemp, a cannabis activist) and the old-school legend Skunk (well-known since the 70s).

ABOUT:

Feminized automatic. Extremely bushy with strong lateral branching, this plant will please you with its bountiful and frosty buds. Easy to grow plant has sativa notes, giving a surge of energy and a desire to have fun (inherited from the Jack Herer). However, Doctor’s Choice #1 has some stony effects as well (from its Skunk heritage) so you can meditate with a positive vibe. It’s perfect for morning and daytime. Certain users have noted that strain has an aphrodisiac-like effect.

FLAVOUR:

Sweet incense, skunk

Strain review:
Niagara

LEGEND:

That strain is named after Niagara Falls, the collective name for three waterfalls that divide the province of Ontario (Canada) and the state of New York (USA). There are differing theories as to the origin of the name of the falls. According to one of them, it comes from the name of an Iroquois town called “Ongniaahra,” meaning “point of land cut in two”. Another theory states that it comes from the word “Nee-ah-gah-rah,” meaning “Thundering Waters.” This fascinatingly beautiful place is shrouded in ancient legends and myths. Paying tribute to the Native people of North America, the strain is named Niagara in honor of one of the great wonders of the world.

ABOUT:

Very strong automatic indica, large yield, growth up to 1.5 meters.

FLAVOUR:
Tropical, spicy

Strain review:
Devotchka

LEGEND:

In the novel by Anthony Burgess “A Clockwork Orange” teenagers speak using Nadsat, a false language based on Russian words. Devotchka is Nadsat (and Russian) for “girl.” Joint Doctor has long-term relationships with Russia. The strain, whose parents were AK47 (another Russian legend), along with Haze and the original Lowryder, was named Devotchka as a salute to Mother Russia.

ABOUT:

Devotchka plants are very compact, with a sativa structure and multiple sticky buds. They give off a bright fruity aroma, which lingers on the tongue. The smoke is dense and heavy. Devotchka is easy to cultivate. It’s great for enjoying with friends, as it encourages carefree communication.

FLAVOUR:

Sweet incense, skunk

Strain review:
Lowryder Regular

LEGEND:

Lowryder (#2) Regular is the constantly improved product of the Joint Doctor’s quest to improve Lowryder’s strength, yield and flavour while maintaining the unusual characteristics that made it so popular. Lowryder was infused with superior Santa Maria genetics, a variety known for copious resin production, exotic taste and soaring highs. The cross was subsequently selectively inbred for several generations. The result is an autoflowering dwarf that yields a stronger, head-turning smoke with intoxicating taste. No separate room or light cycle are needed to flower autoflowers.
