Well, for the last 4 or 5 years I've been working with another forum testing the main guy's fem seed and the company he had been working for.My state just legalized and I was talking to a buddy about trying to find that late 90s early 2000s skunk again....you are one of the few I've seen talk about it...interested to see what you've been breeding!
It had it's ups and downs but they were "testers" so I didn't know what was gonna come out of them. Some were fire and some not so much. He didn't create the genetics, he just replicated them. Everything seem to taste the same because of the high THC I guess for making concentrates. I'm a joint smoker and I want flavor which for me, just wasn't there.
So I recently went back to growing my own stock. Last summer ran a batch of seed my sis n law made in 2008. Out of 5 females 4 had the ammonia smell with some sweetness and one that was the Cat Piss pheno. I enjoyed the hell out of smoking her.
Just finished the last of the cat flower about 3 weeks ago.
I was pretty happy with the stability of the traits they were carrying.
We didn't isolate and steer the genetics like everyone else.
We let them breed with multiple male siblings and preserved the genetics.
More growers should've went this route.
There are chunks of the plants "software" missing in today's world.
Just my opinion.
You can tell someone you have the real deal, they will call you a liar and want you to send them seed, that's understandable I guess, for some people. lol
But when you been working with it for over 20 years, when you know, you know. lol
I'm sure there are growers out there with their own versions of the real skunk. Most won't turn lose of them.
Once you let them out, they don't belong to you anymore.
When it's legal to grow everywhere, you will see these, and other classic strains brought out that's been kept hidden away from these IG breeders of todays cannabis.
I'm not impressed with what the weed today has brought to the table.
Honest, it's all about the experience of planting and waiting for the ending outcome, whatever you're growing, cause as long as you're pleased is all that matters.
Everybody needs to quit whinning about not getting what they thought they were gonna get from these Skunk companies. They just don't have it and make shit up to get your dollars. lol
The seed buying game is a roll of the dice anymore.
Not worth my time.
So my plans is growing my own shit and waiting for the laws to be fair for all of us. Then you'll see that great change back to the 80's and 90's flower when shit was happening.
Sorry, I'm getting long winded here.
Good luck to everyone searching for those "lost treasures" of the past. They're out there.
Mine aren't for sale at this time. Maybe one day.
