Ice marijuana strain is comprised of 50% indica and 50% sativa for the best of both genetics. Ice cannabis contains well over 20% THC levels. The original genetics began with Skunk and White Widow hybridization. Today’s Ice marijuana posses phenotypes of less branches than normal therefor leading to less foliage. You’d think less foliage means less potency but not with Ice marijuana. It posses big bud phenotypes. the flowers will get huge.

Autoflower marijuana is genetically modified to be the fastest growing marijuana. Autoflower refers to the ability of a marijuana plant to change from vegetative (green leaf) state to the flowering (bud) state automatically. The plant will use age instead of the traditional shortened light hours cycle to begin flowering. Flowering is usually dependent on light cycle, fertilizer and temperature changes. Not with auto flower marijuana, it will enter the flowering stage all on it’s own.
The range of seed to harvest is generally 10 weeks producing a somewhat short bushy plant. Some types of autoflower marijuana from seed to harvest can last just over 3 months and be as tall as 5+ feet. A super autoflower marijuana can reach 10 feet tall. Regardless of the photo period there will be buds.
Feminized marijuana refers to a genetic trait that will allow the cannabis plant to produce only female plants. Male plants can pollinate a whole grow room rendering the crop less potent. Most growers want only female plants in their grow room as they carry the highest THC and CBD levels. Feminized marijuana was created to guarantee female plants only.
This type of ganja breeding producing all female plants through planting a seed becomes desirable. However, it goes against the grain of logic that a seed won’t produce more seeds.
Arguments arise concerning the viability of feminized marijuana strains versus marijuana clones. Growers deal with hermaphrodite plants when using feminized genetics. Meaning the marijuana plant has both male and female genetics, therefore producing seeds. Planting clones usually guarantee 99% female production. Planting feminized marijuana seeds brings down the percentage guarantee. Sometimes the best way to approach an all female grow room is to buy or obtain regular marijuana seeds. From those regular marijuana seeds a definite female will be born. From that known female clones are taken. Now you’ll have a complete female grow operation.
Early Harvest Cannabis
Early harvest marijuana strains that refer to how fast a plant will grow in the vegetative and flowering states. Early harvest marijuana will flower/mature in a shorter time than most any other strain of marijuana. You can plant very early in the outdoor cannabis season. You won’t have to worry about harvesting marijuana too late in a season. An excellent feature to beat the outdoor competition.
Purple marijuana gets it’s name from a chemical process that happens in the stems, leaves and flower tops. This chemical process turns the green chlorophyll color to a beautiful purple hue. For a strain of marijuana to be able to possess the purple color that particular strain must be have the genetic ability to produce anthocyanin pigments. These anthocyanin pigments are triggered during seasonal changes. They are not present in all marijuana strains. The green chlorophyll breaks down during that time. Then a scenic purple hue shows through. It’ll show through the stems, leaves and flower tops.
Purple marijuana is thought to be indica dominan, however, sativa hues are increasing. Purple haze could be the most famous of the purple marijuana. Grand Daddy Purp is the most famous of the purple marijuana breeders. The GDP company has the famous Purple Kush. GDP genetics get used extensively to produce other purple marijuana strains.
