last year

Happy Sunday Stoners!

The last post yesterday was about the harvest and curing of the Bubble Gum strain. It was cut before the Amnesia Platinum went down, but due to my eye mishap, it only got published yesterday. Today, I am sharing with you the images of the Amnesia Platinum that is being cured at the moment. This has been my best grown strain ever as what my post title hinted.

Got Lucky With This Clone!

Indeed I could say that it was pure luck to have gotten a robust weed clone from Hanf & Hanf
When I was about to pay at the counter I asked the seller how tall this would be, he said about 1.5 meters high...but it exceeded the height he said ....´cause it was skyrocketng at 2 meters even tho the grow container I chose was way too small for the plant. When I´d grow next season, I will choose this strain again .

Strain Info:

Source: Bulk Seed Bank

0% SATIVA – 30% INDICA
THC: 16-20% CBD: N/A CBN: N/A
GENETICS: Skunk x Cinderella 99 x Jack Herer
FLAVOUR: Amnesia Platinum has a really intense flavour and aroma, with hints of lemon, exotic wood, incense and spices.
EFFECTS: It provides a potent, cerebral and invigorating effect.

The original Amnesia Platinum was created by a Dutch breeder, who crossed a famous Haze female plant with a Northern Lights male. Because of the big success and the high demand, the Dutch operator of Amnesia Platinum has produced the first Original Amnesia Platinum Feminised seeds. This Sativa that flowers as an Indica grows fast, it is very productive, and has a manageable height. The plants have a very high potency, with an exceptionally sweet Haze aroma and they are coated with a large amount of resin crystals.

Curing

Now I have to be patient with the curing, it´s very important to do the open/close ritual of the glasses to avoid molds and harsh flavor, thereby retaining the potency of the nugs.

Supply Should Last For A While

I now have a good supply to last for a while.. I don´t really puff everyday, only on the days when the pain occurs sporadically, then I grab a J and smoke. I really hope that cannabis legalization would be pushed-thru particularly in those poor countries who cannot afford to buy the expensive medicines.

Just woke up from my aftie nap and saw that tiny cuttings like a lollipop, lol😀
I will not wait for the legalization of that thing, planning to fly soon near you.
Glad to see you reaping a good harvest.
Smoke on!

Oh yes, come on down..... we´ll puff together.... I´ll be in Spain during the wintertime, so don´t ever come to Austria at that time when you happened to be ssigned in Croatia again
....lolololol!

·
·

paperwork is on process hopefully next year I'll be going solo to Karlovac and having more spare time, we'll set a meet and greet by then, hehe... can't wait!

Curing is always the worse step for me, the plants have amazing smell but I some how never get that in cure. Not sure what I do wrong

·

How often are your burping your cure? Are you burping them daily? And how long are you leaving the jar open when you burp, all of those things contribute and curing unless done by a machine (which there is debate if it is as good) takes 2 months to do it properly and up to 6 months. (Who knew I didn't till I started researching curing cannabis)

·
·

Yes, I do burp my cure daily for about 3-4 hours in the first couple of days. Since the drying had been fast in the basement, I am opening the glass for longer hours to be on the safe side, just in case some nugs are still moist. It´llbe a problem for me as far as the cure is concerned because I´ll be away during the winter time for almost 5 months. But I asked a cousin who lives nearby to take care of the cure when I am away... It might not be on a daily basis, but I think he will manage...

Yeah, I heard that professional growers do the curing for a minimum of a couple of months if not a year... They have to do it commercially with machines, otherwise if their stuff is harsh and giving a stoner headaches, then it will spread around and that is bad for their business. In Amsterdam, people buy only in coffee shops for quality, the competition of coffee shops is enorm that´s why they have to offer quality potent stuff... and they also command a good price.

In 1999 Amsterdam had its first organic coffeeshop, K2.

It was the "in" place to be and wasn't located somewhere outside of the tourist center. No, it was only 150 meters of the Dam. Bang in the center, laughing at all tourists rushing to Abraxas for the high potency Northern Lights and also Amnesia.

That said, Amsterdam has big differences in quality. That is mostly driven by the lacking legalization of growing for commercial operations btw. Growing at scale is still a crime.

I wouldn't touch the weed at the Bulldog with a barge pole. Same applies to probably 80% of the coffeeshops, or more, in Amsterdam.

Tip: leave the center (just jump on circle tram and go to Jordaan or Pijp area or go to Harlem or Leiden) and find coffeeshops where the budtender is 40+ and looks like a (life) artist. They don't smoke every weed.

The tourist area is for big money, with exception of few genuine old shops, quality is not the focus. Selling is and branding is. Greenhouse Damrak never had same quality as Greenhouse De Pijp where the regulars were. But Damrak had the volume. Nobody of DIEP. Cafe or Mazzo crew went to Greenhouse Damrak or the Bulldog. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Abraxas is a good location for a high octane bud tho.

It is kind of weird how you can harvest two plants the same day, dry and cure them the same way and still have one cure faster then the other, it is great though too I am enjoying the experience from seed to smoking all the care and patience that has gone into it. Also I should have tagged him but I was asking Skyline that because of his comment. LOL But I love hearing about the different ways people are curing and growing. So many methods to get the same or similar results.

Wahahaha.... Sorry, I overlooked that you were meaning the comment for Skyline. I was clicking your comment on the summary at the site of trees https://smoked.witness.pw/@indaymers....

Speaking of curing, my Girl Scout Cookies smelled just about right so I tested it with a small Doobie and it is done and it is fire.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Congrats for your cured Girl Scout Cookies.. Now time for you to enjoy it! Have fun...!

·

Just let the smell be, it´s always a nice aroma all over the place, the more pungent the better, hehehe.

Did you weigh already or will do after curing?

·

I would have to get a scale as I do not have one tbh, I guess after the curing I would weigh it since I am also curious of the weight.

·
·

Baking scale should be fine to have an idea. :)

·
·
·

I have a couple of scales, the oldfashion analog ones... would like to have the digital one, ...have been looking at amazon tho, let´s wait and see what I can find.

·
·
·

I just tried my analog scale just for interest.... the scale showed 35 grams for the Bubble Gum strain... not bad eh...what more for the Amnesia Platinum?!

·
·
·
·

That old fashion scale is probably more accurate than digital kitchen scale. Digital scales even new can be very much off when are not calibrated.

Bountiful harvest dear, how many days will the curing take?

·

Thanks dear.... I´ll set it to about two weeks or more...

Awesome harvest from the amnesia platinum, nicely trimmed too - sounds like it will last you much of the year, very nice. It must be satisfying after all the time and anticipation.

·

Thank you Jack, yeah.... the good haul is what growers are dreaming of. I guess I was lucky to have gotten a healthy clone. I´m über happy it turned out well. My first grow trial from seed had been 30 years ago....The last 2 years, I was growing 2 huge sativas in a pot outside my terrace... but the purpose was medicinal because of lower back pain as well as heel spurs.... I guess all the inflicted pains caused aging are the price of most retirees, LOL!

I now have a good supply to last for a while.. I don´t really puff everyday, only on the days when the pain occurs sporadically, then I grab a J and smoke. I really hope that cannabis legalization would be pushed-thru particularly in those poor countries who cannot afford to buy the expensive medicines.<

This is what I want too, we are belong to a poor family, buying expensive pain reliever made our wallet empty. 'worked for how many long years, most of my income went to medication. If it is only legal in our country, Iit really helps us.
#legalization
Congratulations for you a have good supply and it's organic as well.

So sad to hear @lawlai, hope your country sees the benefits of legalizing cannabis and act towards it. Between, its your duty to remain resolute in the quest of fighting for the legalization of mj in your state/country.

·

Yeah, I wonder wht made Duterte changed his mind about legalization.... Can it be that there was a big protest coming from the pharma industry? I really wish that other nations and States would legalize now.. Thanks @lawlai.

Usual "tough guy" bluster. Whoever thought he would allow it forgot about what happened since 2016.

Also elections were coming, but then polling confirmed he would win the senate and there was no need for moderate campaigning anymore and he could focus on capital punishment (and lowering age of legal criminal responsibility to 12).

Big Pharma still lobbies heavily but they are very restrained already in the Philippines due to the generics drugs bill and limitations on gifts (they mostly organize all-incl seminars now, partner and children allowed too but they are also outlawed technically). That was also reason why PH didn't participate to the Transatlantic trade agreement, as abolishing such laws was an integral pillar of the TTIP.

·

Yeah, I guess he´s showing he´s that tough. I have a first hand story on his son´s "escapades" because he is a neighbor of a friend in Manila. Let´s hope for a sooner legalization... if only other ASEAN nations would legalize now, it would be easier for PH to follow.

Interesting you mention his son. Those who dig very deep online (remember, he was one of the first to employ online “trolls” so his pages and search results are very curated) will find interesting stories about his son.

The root of his anti-stance and his “end the suffering of the family members” statements?
