It is every cannabis cultivator's fantasy to harvest prolific yields of dense, resinous buds in return for the effort put into plant cultivation. With the Cash Money mix pack from Homegrown Cannabis Co., this dream is sure to become a reality. The three-in-one mix pack contains premium seeds of high-yielding varieties - American Haze x California Haze, Blue Haze, and Chocolope – in feminized form. Because there are no males and the strains are fairly generous, growers get the best bang for their buck.
American Haze x California Haze traces its lineage to two illustrious Haze variants. The Sativa-leaning bud boasts of an invigorating effect, as well as the ability to inspire creativity and motivation. Because it contains a bit of Indica, anticipate an energy boost with a subtle calm, creating a well-balanced high that is free of jitters. Then, as the high subsides, its soothing influence manifests, which ends the experience with a satisfying physical relaxation.
Another star player in the Cash Money mix pack is the THC-loaded Blue Haze with its up to 26% psychoactive strength. It has the uplifting and mentally stimulating high of Amnesia Haze and the calming influence of Blueberry. In appropriate dosages, users achieve a balanced mind and body effect that eventually ends with profound sedation, making it ideal for nighttime use.
On the other hand, Chocolope is the multi-awarded cross of Chocolate Thai and Cannalope Haze. Its chocolate-coffee taste combined with its energizing kick makes it an excellent breakfast bud. Especially useful when there's a busy day ahead, it clears the mind while also boosting creativity.
Growing Cash Money Mixpack
The Cash Money mixpack is ideal for growers with at least a bit of cannabis horticulture experience. All three strains may need support for their heavy colas due to their lanky, Sativa-leaning form. Additionally, special care must be taken to ensure that the grow space has adequate airflow and the right level of relative humidity (RH).
During the flowering period, it is advisable to maintain the temperature at around 20 to 26 C° and the RH level at 50%. Toward the end of the flowering period, reduce the RH to 40% or less to ensure that the resin-caked buds stay out of the mold's radar. Trimming unnecessary undergrowth is also essential to ensuring a mold-free garden as an unkept foliage stagnates the air and thus, becomes the breeding ground of pathogens such as molds.
That said, while most cannabis plants thrive best under the powerful rays of the sun, when it comes to these three, indoor cultivation is the safest bet. After all, it allows for easy manipulation of external factors such as temperature, humidity, and exposure to pests.
American Haze x California Haze
Standing at merely 3 to 5 feet tall, American Haze x California Haze has a relatively shorter stature compared to most Sativa-dominant hybrids. In turn, its lower and shorter nodes become more prone to air stagnation. It could be remedied by providing adequate airflow through pruning and trimming the leaves regularly. Installing a small oscillating fan to circulate the air in the lower parts of the plant is also ideal.
Indoor cultivation presents the limitation of not having enough grow space. Fortunately, such problems could be curbed by practicing topping or even coaxing the branches to grow laterally. When pressed for horizontal space, the Screen of Green technique will also prove to be useful in maximizing the area while boosting the overall yields.
With TLC and the use of the right cultivation techniques, expect to harvest 400 grams per square meter (indoors) after 11 weeks of flowering or 700 grams per plant (outdoors) of dense, resinous buds.
Fascinatingly humongous buds are one of the trademark and most sought-after traits of Blue Haze. While this certainly means more harvest, it is - rather unfortunately - also a vulnerability. After all, the denseness of the nuggets increases the likelihood of retaining moisture in its crevices which, in turn, attracts molds. One way to prevent this is to increase airflow in the grow area either by trimming away fan leaves or installing oscillating fans as part of an efficient exhaust system.
Apart from its susceptibility to molds, Blue Haze is pretty much a hardy and easy-to-grow strain that thrives best under the sun. Beefing it up with nutrients during the vegging period is essential to help it develop sturdy branches which are necessary for holding up the weight of its colossal buds. It would also appreciate supporting mechanisms such as trellises and tensioned strings. Without it, the branches could break of snap - thereby injuring the plant. Consequently, this slows down the bud production in an effort to redirect the energy into repairing the damage.
Despite taking quite some time in the vegetative phase, Blue Haze has a relatively rapid flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks. Come early October, expect a bountiful harvest of fat, chunky, and resinous buds (350 to 600 g/m2 (indoors) or 700 to 800 g/plant (outdoors).
Cultivating Chocolope proves to be quite a challenge for amateur growers because of the peculiarities of its requirements. However, it would not be an issue to experienced green thumbs.
For one, typical of most Sativa plants, it can grow taller than 6.5 ft, which makes it inconvenient to grow indoors. However, if growing outdoors is not an option, it is possible to curb the plant's towering height by bending, topping, or pruning its foliage early in the vegetative phase. Subjecting it in the Screen of Green technique is also beneficial. Not only does this coax the branches to spread outwards, but it also creates multiple budding sites which help increase the overall harvest.
Another problem that growers may encounter when rearing this strain is its susceptibility to molds and mildews. Hence, it requires close monitoring of humidity levels and constant inspection of the dense buds and foliage for any sign of mold infestation.
Chocolope also exhibits exceptional hunger for nutrients. At times, it may even show signs of nutrient deficiency even at the slightest trigger. As such, it is recommended to implement a frequent but sparse feeding regimen to meet its needs. However, be careful not to overindulge it with fertilizer as it could cause a nutrient lockout.
Akin to its parent strain - Chocolate Thai - this plant has a notoriously long flowering period of 10 to 12 weeks. Nevertheless, the wait will be well worth it once it produces 400 to 500 grams per square meter or around 600 to 700 grams per plant of exceedingly aromatic and flavorful buds brimming with trichomes.
Fragrance and Flavor
Every puff of American Haze x California Haze will fill the nostrils with the pungent fragrance of freshly squeezed lemons and invigorating kerosene-like kick. Meanwhile, every inhale of this strain will etch an earthy, lemony sweetness with a slight spice. Blue Haze, too, has a bit of spiciness, but this time with a robust blueberry flavor.
Lastly, Chocolope is most famous for its intense earthy scent that smells of cocoa and coffee. Every puff of its flavorful smoke hits smoothly with hints of chocolate. Upon exhale, the decadent flavor of cocoa, coffee, and vanilla becomes even more apparent.
The psychoactive effects of the strains in the Cash Money mix pack cater to a wide variety of needs throughout the day. For one, Chocolope and Blue Haze are at the opposite end of a spectrum whereas American Haze x California Haze sits at the middle.
As a nearly pure Sativa strain, Chocolope exerts a purely energizing stimulation with virtually none of the sedative effect of most Indica strains. This pick-me-up euphoric strain also inspires focus, creativity, and motivation to get things done efficiently. Thus, making it an excellent morning strain.
Meanwhile, American Haze x California Haze exerts the same invigorating effects perfectly balanced by a relaxing finish. It uplifts the spirit and helps maintain focus and motivation throughout the day. After some time, though, expect the euphoric rush to settle and become more calming, making making the bud perfect for afternoon strain snacking.
Lastly, typical of Indica-heavy strains, Blue Haze inherently induces a profound, comfortable laziness. The tranquil sensation is perfect for winding down after a busy day. Then, the serene and de-stressing impact of this strain eventually induces sleepiness.
With THC levels ranging from 15% to 26%, the Cash Money mix pack induces potent, fast-acting, and long-lasting therapeutic benefits that relieve a wide variety of ailments - be it physical or psychological in nature. The three strains are widely used for mitigating stress, anxiety, depression, and severe mood swings. Separately, Chocolope beats fatigue like a drum, while Blue Haze prevents insomnia from inhibiting a good sleep.
Considering its extensive medicinal benefits, it might be tempting to dose higher than the recommended amount. However, when it comes to cannabis, more does not always mean better. With excessive use of these high THC strains comes the risk of inducing anxiety, paranoia, and lightheadedness. Hence, responsible dosing must be observed at all times. Start with low doses then increase it incrementally until it reaches just below one's THC tolerance.
It is also worth noting that cannabis consumption entails mild discomforts such as cottonmouth and bloodshot eyes regardless of the dosage. Nevertheless, such symptoms could be easily remedied by drinking lots of water.
Mixed Cash Money Pack
With the aim of providing the best value for the money, Homegrown Cannabis Co. loaded the Cash Money mix pack with three of the best strains that will not disappoint in terms of yields, flavor, aroma, as well as its psychoactive and medicinal benefits.
To maximize the benefits of this mix pack, it is best to start the morning with the appetizing and energizing effects of Chocolope, then stay upbeat all-day long with American Haze x California Haze. Finally, wind down at the end of the day with the sedating effects of Blue Haze for a good night's sleep.
