While you can do it both indoors and outdoors, if outdoors is possible then please go that route. The heat does wonders to this sucker. You will have a 12 foot marijuana plant that is incredibly amazing and which means more Nugs.

Babies were blooming and healthy at about 8 WEEKS!! I mean who wouldn't want that? was a bit skeptical at the beginning then the stems and branches started formiing real early. By the time the seventh week was coming round I could see some flowers which made me so HAPPY.

A pal got me into this strain, she had some leftover seeds from a previous harvest and boy aren't I a Sativa believe now. It ticks all my boxes and was such an incredibly easy grow that its the only thing I keep in my farm. All other strains can't match this one.

In response to Miss MJ, I have to say that I find sativas to be oversold. I mean they aren't a bad batch, I have one or two that I can't go a day without but in general I could definitely live without them. Indicas though, now thats where the fun is at.

There's a beauty to sativas that people often ignore. They are a work of art if you ask me. Every other strain should just sod-off and let our sativas give us everything we need. Whether it is pain management, stress relief, countering insomnia and all those other problems. Also, its not bad for some relaxing me time, lol.

At the end of my aunt's life, this baby really came in handy. She had terminal cancer with so much pain.

First smoked this strain in 1981 when I moved to Tampa I was 22 at that time best I smoked since some Thai sticks in the middle 70's in Pa. Very strong sativa buzz since than I only vaped it at 78% THC. No bud available. This strain is insane with this amount of THC. 3 hits and let it settle in before hitting more long time buzz if u can handle the cough

Had a grower turn loose a bud from his private grow. OML ~ most insane herb I've ever tried,late 70's... Lime green but looked like someone dropped it in sugar! Took sizzers and cut into 3j's. Smoked half of it with my friend and couldn't smoke anymore. The high was uplifting, motivating and the best ever! Never could get more and never saw anyone who had experienced the real Gainesville Green! Today's strain isn't the real deal,to bad because everyone should experience.
