Strain Name: G-13
Background Information: It is widely believed and accepted that the famous G13 cannabis originated from the United States government (DEA, FBI, CIA), who allegedly ran a cannabis research institute in rural Mississippi in the 1960’s and 70’s. Reports were made that a “rebel” government worker stole a clone of a pure Afghani strain of cannabis and distributed it to various connections around the United States. This is mostly untrue however. What is known is that a man who went by the name of Sandy Weinstein had a connection at the government funded cannabis research facility conducted at the University of Mississippi. When a man by the name of Neville Schoenmakers one way or another convinced Mr. Weinstein to persuade his friend at the lab to obtain a strain of prime cannabis. It is said that there was a batch of pure Indica Afghani strains of marijuana. These strains were labeled G1 all the way to G23. The G13 strain that was obtained, cloned and distributed by Schoenmakers is said to have been of much higher quality than any of the other Afghanis.
Ideal for the Sea of Green, this strain grows rapidly with the majority of large, tri-chrome-rich buds congregating on the stem. It also has minimal to no side-branching. This strain gives off a powerfully thick, danky aroma.
Unlike most Indicas, G13 will not lock you hopelessly on your couch, bed or bean bag. This has excellent pain relieving properties, providing the patients with a strong body high and simultaneously giving an uplifting, joyful state of medication.
Looks: Many different shades of green, but mostly a light sage color with lots of orange hairs. Rock-like density.
Smell: Mandarin oranges.
Taste: Sweet, smooth smoke.
Effects: Secretly developed by the U.S. government from seeds obtained in the Roswell UFO crash with a lab-tested 37% THC content…or something like that, according to urban legend. Actually, this is some kind of potent Afghan indica that has both strong mind and body effects. Relaxing and uplifting at the same time. Definitely a high caliber strain, but probably not quite up to the hype.
