Different individuals show extra sativa or indica influence through subtle variations in the development and structure of their resin-soaked buds. The sativa-leaning females make particularly good multi-stem plants and produce huge oval calyxes which spiral into crooked bud-pyramids large enough to bend branches. The indica phenotype’s flowers are distinct and impressive, building into voluptuous columns of snowy bud with main colas as thick as an arm. In other respects, phenotype variation is small, with a majority of plants flowering at the same speed and increasing their height by about 150%.
A small proportion will show a jump at the onset of blooming, which first widens the gaps between internodes and later gives an even greater yield potential. All plants from this strain are sweet smelling and taste of pineapple punch. As for the stone—get ready for an immediate body flush, a bright physical glow that’s not given to lethargy. Later, a cerebral high creeps up, subtle at first, yet longer lasting than the body effect. Ed Rosenthal Super Bud is sweetly relaxing, leaving plenty of energy for conversation and socializing with friends. Medicinally, this might be a good variety for chronic body pain and the blues that come with it. More about Ed Rosenthal Super Bud from Sensi Seeds. It’s no exaggeration to say that Ed Rosenthal Super Bud has been decades in the making.
Sharp-eyed cannabis historians and collectors of old seed catalogues might have seen the single printed reference to the breeding program that eventually led to the Super Bud strain. In 1989, this Ed-affiliated strain was called Ed’s Potent Evolved Hybrid Type 1 (PEHT), when it was briefly offered in a limited edition of 1500 seeds. It sold out very quickly and was never commercially offered again. Around this time, there was a big shift toward indoor cultivation and few growers had the time or space for experimental crossings. Sensi Seed Bank’s releases in the following years were geared toward this new indoor trend, featuring stabilized F1 hybrids—strains that could be relied upon for predictable behavior. As the years passed, and Sensi’s breeding-stock expanded into a truly comprehensive collection of traditional cultivars and legendary hybrids, their breeders found plenty of fascinating new possibilities to explore, and the PEHT program continued quietly in the background. With occasional infusions of promising new genetic material and dozens more generations of crossing and selection for yield and resin production, the program yielded several rarefied plants which proved to be valuable intermediate parents in complex hybrids. A desirably heavy, sticky form began to dominate the later PEHT generations. Breeders focused on stabilizing the finer points of the emerging strain. Unique flower structures and flavors discovered in the program were successfully reproduced as recurring traits and the ER seed strain neared completion. By this time, near the end of the 1990s, Holland’s tolerance for cannabis was in sharp decline, and professional breeding became much more difficult, as the large crops of test seedlings required for rigorous selection were no longer possible. As a result, the small amount of refinement required before releasing ER in its final distinct form took many years longer than expected, making this hybrid the longest single project in the Sensi Seed Bank collection. Sensi feels this world-class strain shows the years of work and care invested in its development. This gourmet hybrid promises to be a special addition to any serious aficionado’s garden. Right in the middle of Copenhagen, in the neighbourhood of Christianshavn, you’ll find the alternative community of Christiania. It might be very close to expensive apartments and just a few streets away from the Copenhagen Opera House, but this laid-back part of town feels a million miles away. Christiania was founded by a group of adventurous squatters and hippies in the 1970s, on an old military barracks. Complete with habitable buildings and electricity, this area had all they needed to take up residence and begin creating an autonomous ‘freetown’ with its own laid-back way of life. Having recently celebrated its 46th birthday (and with the illicit cannabis trade that helped to make the area famous still obvious) Christiania is a living monument to alternative thinking and the hippie movement. Don’t expect to see people with flower crowns burning sage and dancing in circles; what you will see today is a chilled, graffiti-daubed neighbourhood full of cosy cafés, open-minded people and beautiful nature. Christiania has around 850 inhabitants, including some of the people who first moved into the area back in the 1970s. Some will be happy to show you around and chat about the good old days, while others very much prefer their privacy. The residents’ cute and peculiar houses are easy to spot as you wander around. Most are brightly painted and many are decorated with unusual knick-knacks and drawings. As Christiania is a car-free environment, the favoured mode of transportation is the Christiania bike – otherwise known as a tricycle with a big box at the front.
You’ll see these being used right across Copenhagen, carrying groceries, bags and even children. Apart from being famed as a bit of a stoner’s paradise, where weed is sold openly on the street, Christiania is known for its environmental activism and a strong sense of community spirit, so you’ll see a lot of social activities being advertised on posters and billboards. Christiania is in the eastern part of the city centre. It’s easy to reach by bus or metro (just get off at Christianshavn station). You can even make a stop there on your way to the city from the airport. You’ll get a feel for life in Christiania quite quickly, but it’s nice to spend a few hours exploring, grabbing a coffee and a bite to eat, or even relaxing with a beer or at a concert. Because Christiania is car-free and basically non-commercial, it’s great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. You definitely won’t find a branch of Starbucks here.
