About DJ Short

DJ Short is a breeder who hails from Detroit, but currently, he operates out of Oregon. He’s been in the cannabis business since the late '70s. The man inherited his knowledge and passion for cannabis from his great-grandmother, a gypsy herbalist. Daniel John (or DJ) is known for special cloning techniques under a fluorescent desk lamp. Due to this type of indoor light, cannabis plants grow faster and are easy to maintain.

One of DJ’s popular strains is a Sativa-Indica cross which smells of berries and honey. It was cultivated in 1981 and produced a seriously psychoactive and euphoric body high. This strain allowed the breeder to earn a position in the High Times Seed Bank Hall of Fame, and he was nominated as “The Willy Wonka of Pot.” He also wrote a book in 2003 titled “Cultivating Exceptional Cannabis: An Expert Breeder Shares His Secrets.”

Aside from Blueberry F5, DJ is known for cultivating of more than 2 dozen strains, such as Flo, Vanilluna, Azure Haze, Velvet Krush, First Light, etc. All of them feature various medical benefits and are used to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and improve other health issues.

    What do I need to do to get Mexican Oaxacan, Acapulco Gold, Colombian Gold, Jamaican Lambsbread or Original Haze? I'm 53 and growing for 30 years and grew out a super sativa back in 94 before I began cross breeding. Dave Randal gave a few seeds to me then but I don't know the strain. I live in Detroit.

    Quality meets price at Dj Short Seeds. Everything here is par and no day will you be disappointed. I have ordered from them several times and every time the delivery is quick and the products are in good condition. They have some of the most potent strains that I have ever grown. I am really impressed by this company.

    Favorable prices for quality products. I have ordered from DJ short a couple of times and I am always happy with their service. The customer support is very impressive and the quality of seeds is on top. I am looking forward to receiving a phone casing that I ordered for my daughter, she has been asking for it for long, I want to gave her as a Christmas present.
