The best known strain in our catalogue, it is also one of the strongest
and very typical sativa.
It is the result of crossing the 2 best clones of our Mother Plants,
a sativa with an indica. Moby Dick is our most psychoactive strain
with a concentration of up to 21% THC and the presence of THCV,
a substance present in equatorial sativas produced in response to
the sun’s ultraviolet rays; this substance makes the effect of the THC
stronger, to the point that the effect can be felt after just 2 or 3 puffs.
The low CBD concentration helps to make the effect psychoactively
intense and lasting; it speeds you up both physically and mentally
and the come down is long, slightly physical and noticeable. It
produces great hunger and thirst, and it is advisable to eat and drink
well, to counteract its effects. Due to this increase in appetite, it is
recommended to treat the secondary effects of chemotherapy and
anorexia. There are 2 main phenotypes for this cross, a dominant
sativa which is present in 65% of the plants approximately, and the
rest, that are usually smaller and faster.
The sativa phenotype has a wood, pine, incense aroma, and the
indica type is sweeter.
To develop this strain to its full potential, it needs a lot of light, up
to 800 watts per square metre and a very high E.C between 1.5 and
2.00 as this strain needs more feeding than most of the strains.
It is highly recommended to control the pH as well, making sure
it does not exceed 6.5 otherwise it could demonstrate symptoms
of iron deficiency in the form of progressive yellowing of the intervenal spaces on the leaves and wrinkling on the tips of the leaflets.
This deficiency does not really affect the plant’s health but it could
restrict the harvest if it is really serious.
Outdoors, full sun, plentiful soil and water and widely spacing the
trees 3 m apart will ensure trees which grow to 3 m tall and a harvest
of up to 1500 grams in optimal conditions. The flowering period is
quite fast indoors (60/70 days),
15th October outdoors with good mould resistance inherited from
the sativa parent plant.
