“This smoke hit me on the third toke and the arthritis pains in the bones went away.“
“It’s a relaxing smoke smooth smoke not harsh. It has a good resistance to bugs and if you do get them the plant stands up to the mite killers you use. The smell to me is a sweet lemon smell.”
One of the hardest things about breeding is finding a really good male that passes on the traits desired and is capable of improving on our already exceptional genetic lines.
This is why you see Space Dude used in so many of our projects.
Once a male is proven it’s almost impossible as a breeder not to want to see the results using him to pollinate all the proven moms. One of the projects we spent a great deal of time on was the selection of a male Vortex plant so that we could complete the work on Apollo-13 BX.
This strain went on to satisfy all of our goals and has become one of our most popular strains being sold out more than it is in stock.
The Vortex male passes on the following traits, increased potency, production of larger Trichome heads, and a pleasing rotten fruit taste with an intoxicating baby
With the success of Chernobyl and Qrazy Train, two hybrids created using our Blood Wreck, I wanted to see what would happen if we crossed my favorite strain Vortex with genetics held in Blood Wreck a strain I am not partial to but love its medicinal effect.
Early in 2011 we created Time Wreck com- bining the two parent’s traits and the seeds went into testing. The results have been very exciting and we have decided to continue with the project releasing the strain as a free promo on Attitude seed bank sometimes in November.
TGA pot snobs everywhere have started harvesting Time Wreck and are turning in rave reviews which is the focus of this story. Gonzo a very skilled grower ran this new cross next to another of our Wreck hybrids Chernobyl and was surprised to hear that his patients preferred the Chernobyl because the Time Wreck was too potent! As I was hoping it seems that the Vortex has improved the taste of the Blood Wreck strain at least in my opinion.
The fruity pungent semi rotting fruit smell has combined wonderfully with the lemon and sandalwood of the mother plant to create something truly unique and different than I have ever tasted before. The samples I received were cured well and had a devastating effect on my mental clarity. The day they arrived I was trying to add up some columns of numbers and I finally had to give up as simple math was over my head while inside the Time Wreck.
There is a funny back story to the name we choose as well; Time Wreck was actually just a temporary tag. Dioxide the creator of this new hybrid as well as the award winning Chernobyl told me he would come up with another name before the strain was released. As time went on I kept telling him to decide and he would tell me he just hadn’t come up with one he liked yet. The testers started sharing cuttings within the medical community and at Hempstalk in Oregon someone came up to us that had been passed a cutting so I don’t think we can make a change now.
So what about her medicinal effect?
Let’s look at some comments directly from some of the testers.
Toke Crazy had this to say “This smoke hit me on the third toke and the arthritis pains in the bones went away. It’s a relaxing smoke smooth smoke not harsh. It has a good resist-ance to bugs and if you do get them the plant stands up to the mite killers you use. The smell to me is a sweet lemon smell. A few tokes and the pain go’s away, a few more and you are total relaxed and finish the joint and off to bed you go. Great for all pain and sleep. To me it’s a great smoke, a few tokes and no pains and to sleep finish a bowl or joint. Will be making oil from the trim. Easy to grow and maintain without big problems great smoke. Will grow it again. I do believe a long cure would really bring out the full 100% this plant has to give. Good Job Sub and Thanks for letting me test it.
Tcurtiss our main tester and California TGA rep had this to say “Very very heavy produc-er for me & great against mold & bugs”
Time Wreck can stretch a bit during the first 3 weeks of flowering so it’s considered a tall strain finishing in a little over 8 weeks. The top buds swell to a good size producing mod-erate to heavy yields.
Everyone that has sampled the dried flowers comments on how potent the smoke is using words like not for average smokers. I would have expected results like these because both of the parent strains test very high for THC. We will continue collecting test data and do lots more testing in the form of bong hits our-selves. I hope in the near future lots of people get to try out this new creation.
I hope you enjoyed this early look into one of our new projects.
