Poisonous Candies. The Green Poison® Family

cabecera_web_ww119-01

 

At Sweet Seeds® we’re proud to say that along the last 10 years we always managed to include stable genetics in our collection. This collection is basically made out of plants that are easy to grow and produce high yields of premium quality flowers. In the year of 2009, when we released our Green Poison® (Sweet Seeds variety SWS14) in the market, we already knew that growers would get outstanding quality, with a short flowering stage and a production of flowers significantly above average. But we could not imagine how quickly it would become one of the best sellers of our genetic collection.

11 years have passed since then and today this strain is still the favourite of a lot of experienced growers and a pleasant surprise to all the beginners who try it. For all this we progressively enlarged the family of this classic, using it in the development of new projects, until we arrived to the present moment when we have 7 genetics in this family: Green Poison® (SWS14), Green Poison Auto® (SWS30), Red Poison Auto® (SWS39), Green Poison F1 Fast Version® (SWS41), Green Poison XL Auto® (SWS71), Green Poison CBD® (SWS70) and the brand new and beautiful red-flowered Tropicanna Poison F1 Fast Version® (SWS85). In this article we will talk about these 7 wonderful strains and what you can expect from growing each one of them.

Green Poison®

Green Poison®

Our original Green Poison® (SWS14) is a plant with an explosive growth and a very fast flowering. Due to its hybrid vigour, the plants show a very fast growth pattern, something that is also reflected in the rooting of clones from this strain. Roots that stretch at a vertiginous pace, robust trichomes that stack since the third week of flowering and fast flower maturation are characteristics that will hit you in the eye when you grow this genetic. It’s a very stable strain, with very few phenotypical variations. And even when there are differences in plants grown from seed, when it comes to size and structure all the plants are usually similar, making Green Poison® a very adequate strain to SOG grows. Its large and flexible branches make it also a very good option for SCROG grows.

Super-sweet aroma, truly pleasant and intense, with hints of lemon and other fruits that remain in the nose for several minutes. The density of the smoke and vapor is delightful, leaving a very enjoyable taste in the mouth. We’re talking about a taste with a Skunk background but with sweet fruity hints. The effect is very powerful and long lasting. It arrives between 2 and 5 minutes after the first inhalation and usually lasts for a period of between 60 and 90 minutes. This strain is a favourite for many growers and there are lots of cannabic cups in its record book to prove it.

In the season of 2015, with collective purchasing and cannabic associations in mind, we presented our 25 and 100 seed packages. To begin with, we chose four of the most well famed Sweet Seeds® genetics for sale in this packaging format and, of course, Green Poison® was one of the four chosen strains. This means that it is possible to acquire this amazing strain at an unbeatable price of 3,50€ per seed (in packs of 100 seeds) and 4€ per seed (in packs of 25 seeds). Probably the cheapest high quality feminized seeds in the market.

Green Poison Auto®

Green Poison Auto®

Between 2009 and 2011, we developed the autoflowering version of the original photoperiod dependent Green Poison®. An excellent and precise breeding work performed in a very professional way by the Sweet Seeds® R&D Department, which allowed us to keep the desirable traits from its ancestor. When we developed this strain we looked for a medium-tall sized autoflowering genetic that with optimal growth conditions could produce plants of between 60cm and 100cm of height by the end of flowering. So, to introduce the autoflowering genes in Green Poison®, we used a very special selected genetic line of Big Devil #2 Auto® (SWS20). This strain was selected for its medium-tall size and high production of flowers and resin.

Green Poison Auto® is a 3rd generation autoflowering strain that grows with the appearance of an indica-sativa hybrid leaning to the sativa side, which automatically starts flowering at between day 20 and 25 after the germination of the seeds. The plants present a short internodal distance, which together with the development of large side branches, favours the production of large side buds. These generous buds end up totally covered in resin between the second and the fourth week of flowering and they are ready to be harvested only two months after germination. Plants can reach to a final height of between 60 and 110cm.

The delicious and intense aroma of its photoperiod dependent version remained strongly fixed in all the offspring. This is a fruity aroma that is very penetrating and sweet, with hints that remind of classic Skunk aromas but more fruity and sweet. The taste also incorporates that same mix of Skunk with fruits and is very potent and persistent. Green Poison Auto® features the same effect present in its original version but some phenotypes may produce flowers with a more energetic feeling. Globally we can call it a powerful effect, physically relaxing but with soft psychoactive sensations at the same time. It’s a very enjoyable effect that one can experience at any time of the day, either to relax, go to a party or simply to spend a nice time with friends. This effect is also a powerful appetite stimulant, it reduces stress and it’s a great mood enhancer.

Red Poison Auto®

Red Poison Auto

During the 2013 season we released a new family of autoflowering strains that stand out for their beautiful red or purple flowers. We named this group of varieties “The Red Family”. These are autoflowering strains with purple genetic traits and around 80% of the seeds end up producing purple or red flowered plants.

When we started the breeding project that would lead us to the creation of this family, we chose 3 of the most popular strains among our clients and friends to hybridize with the autoflowering purple strain. Green Poison® was one of the 3 chosen genetics, giving birth to Red Poison Auto®. This is a strain that grows with an outstanding structure, producing a lot of side branches and large strong flowers. It presents a great hybrid vigour, giving priority to the strengthening of side branches that later into flowering will allow to hold its heavy flowers. It is also very resistant to plagues and when grown with a rich soil the plants may not even need any liquid fertilizers at all along the 60 to 65 days that they need to reach full maturity.

The flowers produced by Red Poison Auto® release a very distinct aroma that could be described as sweet and citric. After rubbing our fingers on the flowers to break some trichomes and release the terpenes, soft hints of cotton candy fill the room. These aromas are also reminiscent of chewing gum or fruit jellies. When it comes out of the grinder other scented aromas also become noticeable.

The effect arrives just a few seconds after the first inhalation but it’s pleasantly progressive, starting with a light sensation of relaxation to then, 5 to 10 minutes after, turning into a controllable euphoria that is notably counterbalanced with a feeling of serenity and inner peace. When we vaporize its flowers some earthy aromas appear. A soft, rather sweet aroma, that in a very strong way is also present in the smoke of this beautiful and delicious Red Poison Auto®.

Green Poison F1 Fast Version®

Green Poison F1 Fast Version®

How many times have we dreamed of a photoperiod-dependent plant that can be ready with only 6 weeks of flowering with a massive yield of high quality compact buds?

In the course of the 2013 season we managed to turn this dream into reality by releasing in the market a new product: the F1 Fast Version® strains. These new strains are the resulting F1 hybrids of the cross between a photoperiod-dependent genetic and an autoflowering genetic. As a result of this hybridization we obtain photoperiod-dependent genetics but with a very fast flowering. The photoperiod-dependent parental contributes with its condition of photoperiod dependent to all the offspring, while the autoflowering genetic contributes with a very fast flowering and maturation to all the offspring.

Exactly the same way we did one year before with The Red Family genetics, this time we also started by using our best well-famed strains, in which our original Green Poison® is obviously included. So, our Green Poison F1 Fast Version® was born. This is a F1 strain which is the result of the cross between an elite clone of our appreciated Green Poison® and a selected 3rd generation autoflowering strain of Green Poison Auto® (SWS30).

If we sprout 5 or 10 seeds of this strain with the goal of selecting the fastest one among all the plants that suit our needs regarding production and quality, it is possible to find a mother that produces high quality clones, productive and ready to harvest with as few as 6 weeks of flowering. And, with this, we can significantly raise the number of harvests per year, because it becomes possible to harvest once every 50 days indoors.

When it comes to outdoor grows, possibly for the first time in the history of cannabis, it is possible to harvest a high quality modern photoperiod-dependent hybrid much earlier than the usual timing. Green Poison F1 Fast Version® plants are ready to harvest by the end of August or beginning of September, according to the taste of each grower and to the phenotype of each seed, which most of the times allows the grower to anticipate the harvest to the period in which botrytis usually attacks.

Just like we are used to see in its original version, this plant grows with a lot of vigour, producing large side branches and a short internodal space. Very fast flowering and high production of flowers that are completely covered in aromatic resin. Exquisite aroma in the same intense Skunk line with sweet hints that are very penetrating. The effect is physical and relaxing, stimulating optimism, providing comfort at any time of the day… and a lot of sweet happiness!

  • Variety: SWS41
  • Year of edition: 2013
  • Genetics: Green Poison® x Green Poison Auto®
  • THC: 15-20%

  • Outdoor Yield: 500-700 g/plant
  • Indoor Blooming: 6 weeks
  • Outdoor Harvest: late August to early September

Green Poison XL Auto®

Red Poison Auto

After many, many years of selecting and breeding, when our autoflowering strains reached to a point where yield, resin production, aromas and cannabinoid content were all improved to an unbelievable extent, we asked ourselves what else could we do to get them closer to perfection. Our clients and friends had the obvious answer, sharing it with us in the form of a request: “please magnify your sweets!”. As a result of this request, our tall-stemmed autoflowering family was born.

Released in 2018, our Green Poison Auto XL® (SWS71) is a 3rd generation autoflowering strain that was developed within a recurrent selection program of tall-stemmed Green Poison Auto® specimens across multiple generations. These seeds produce plants that height around 25% more than their ancestors, with an identically higher flower and resin production. The plants can reach between 80 cm and 125 cm and they are usually ready to harvest with mature flowers all covered by a thick layer of sweet resin with 8 weeks from germination whether grown indoor or outdoors. The tastes and aromas are very pleasant and intense, with sweet and fruity tones, a sweet Skunk background and hints that are reminiscent of rucola and walnuts.

This strain grows very fast and develops a lot of branches. From the 4th week you can see a good formation of pistils. When given the appropriate amounts of climate and illumination, this strain is a devourer of food. This strain has been a success in all the gardens where the plants are treated as they deserve. Its compact buds usually offer great resistance to the best and most powerful grinder. Once dry, the smell is very penetrating and it is when its dried fruit tones appear, making it an ideal strain to taste in your favorite vaporizer.

It is a great choice for night time, to be relaxed, serene and with a multitude of positive ideas. Green Poison Auto XL® helps to sleep and it is more than recommended for creativity or inspiration. It is also perfect for a laugh with colleagues in a quiet environment. Not recommended tough to watch movies because it makes you be somewhat clueless and lose track of it all. But it is good if you want to create your own version of the story!

Green Poison CBD®

Green Poison®

We recently had a real boom in the cannabis world with legalization for both therapeutic and recreational uses in several states of the USA. In other parts of the world it seems like the process is similar and the same path is being followed: decriminalize, normalize and legalize Cannabis. One of the most important cannabinoids features great power as a medicine against many ailments. It is used as a palliative for many diseases such as epilepsy and in a multitude of aggressive treatments, such as chemotherapy. In addition, it has no psychotropic or psychoactive effects. It does not get you high, but it cures: we are talking about CBD or Cannabidiol.

A couple of years ago, the Sweet Seeds® breeders started working on strains with high levels of CBD from which a specific line of CBD plants could be created, each one with different levels, for the different users. The already mythical Green Poison® conquered the heart of many cannabis growers around the world and now with the arrival of CBD it has been modulated by a clone from the Diesel family to achieve a THC:CBD ratio that stands between 1:1 and 1:2. It is one of the fastest plants with these qualities, being able to be harvested within only 7 weeks of flowering. With all this, in the 2018 season our Green Poison CBD® (SWS70) was born.

This is a very productive plant with a large central bud and sometimes it is necessary to hold up the branches so that their flowers do not touch the ground. It is very easy to grow and it is an ideal strain for SOG. It is ideal for outdoor crops with humid climates as it can be harvested before the arrival of the bad weather. The aromas and flavors of Green Poison CBD® are very dense, sweet and fruity, with a touch that is reminiscent of nuts. If you decide to go with this one I am sure you will not fail.
