Nobody knows better than us what can happen when fall arrives and your crop is still not ready for harvest. The climate in Humboldt County stands out for its humidity, fog, and short summers. That is why we’ve created the Fast versions of our favourite strains: Green Crack and OGKZ. Strains ideal for cold climates with short summers, and for growers looking for maximum indoor yields, as the shorter cycles of these Fast versions allow for more harvests per year.
In order to create these new Fast versions, we selected two genetics whose outstanding features have made them the favourite strains among Californian growers. On the one hand, OGKZ, one of Mendocino's most sought-after genetics; on the other, Green Crack, a Sativa plant that wowed Californian palates, more accustomed to Indica-leaning strains. Two aromas that drive us crazy and that we wanted to make available to all growers.
Why Fast versions?
We're really excited to launch this new category in our catalogue, as we know that the Fast genetics have got a lot to offer. We have created them to make growers' lives easier, as these strains reduce the climate risks associated to the last few weeks of flowering.
What are Fast cannabis strains?
We must first clarify that Fast genetics are not autoflowering, and therefore do depend on the photoperiod that they are exposed to. This is a real advantage that these strains have over the automatics, especially for those looking for heavy yields. The photoperiod can be controlled to keep the plants in veg mode for longer, so that they become bigger and produce heavier yields.
What makes the Fast strains better than the normal, feminized varieties?
Fast genetics' main trait is their shorter flowering: they will be ready for harvest between one and two weeks earlier than feminized cannabis genetics, which are 'normal' photo-dependent plants. This reduces the risk of pests and fungi in the last few weeks of flowering, which is more prone to happen outdoors when the rain and adverse weather conditions of fall arrive, which can easily ruin your crop. Fast genetics are feminized, i.e. cannabis seeds that always develop into female plants full of succulent buds. Tempting, right? Let's have a look in more detail at these two strains that mark the opening of our new category:
Fast Flowering Green Crack: Speed and pedigree
This Indica-dominant jewel stands out for her heavy yields and intense aroma; a mix of sweet notes with touches of spices and citrus fruits. A hybrid that results from the cross of a male Green Crack Auto and a female Green Crack, with a 44-50 day flowering time. Even though she's a mid-sized plant, she produces great yields, which makes her ideal for indoor grows. Her effect is potent yet not devastating: her 18% THC levels make her the perfect companion for tension relief after a hard day. An easy-to-grow strain that delivers high-quality crops for those eager to taste the most intense Californian flavors.
Fast Flowering OGKZ: limonene-brimming flowers to raise your mood
Fast Flowering OGKZ is a feminized, Indica-leaning cannabis strain born from the cross of a male OG Kush Auto and OGKZ. After her resounding success, we wanted to make this genetic available to the public in a faster version so that we could deliver her top-notch, extremely fragrant buds to all corners of the planet. And we succeeded in our mission: Fast Flowering OGKZ stands out for her bulky flowers that showcase an intense flavor; and for her limonene and resin-laden buds that will be ready in 58 days max. With regards to her effect, just a few hits are enough to feel immense peace and joy and be transported to a state of well-being that you will want to sustain forever.
