Colombian gold seeds

This Sativa strain is the result of a combination of pure strains from the Santa Marta mountain range in Colombia that is home to the country’s highest peaks. Below 2,500m, where the soil is very fertile, can be found anything from typical Andean woods to dense tropical jungle.

Cannabis has been cultivated in this area for many generations and, by trying to improve the plant’s medicinal properties through continual interbreeding, the local inhabitants have achieved some of the most genetically pure strains in existence. Our breeder brought back many seeds from this region and we worked with them to produce this tall, vigorous, branchy strain with an intense, sweet fragrance that stands out above all for her taste and potent, psychedelic effects.

Colombian gold seeds

aka Sweet Coffee Ryder

COLOMBIAN GOLD RYDER is the result of crossing our Colombian Gold with a plant with Ruderalis genes. Colombian Gold is a blend of pure sativa strains from the Santa Marta range in Colombia.

This cross is a good example of Cannabis Ruderalis, which, over the generations, has been crossed and re-crossed to produce a strain with Indica characteristics and the autoflowering genetic programming of Ruderalis.

Although the Colombian mother is mainly sativa, Sweet Coffee Ryder has more hybrid characteristics though the flowering cycle is somewhat longer than a typical indica. It can reach a height of between 40 and 120cm and has one large central bud with several good-sized lateral branches.

As flowering does not depend on the photoperiod, she can be grown at any time of the year although yields improve the better the environmental conditions.

A good tip for outdoor growing is to plant out as soon as the good weather starts then repeat a few days before harvesting the first crop to give two good harvests a year.

Some growers do more, though owing to the less favourable conditions, these crops tend to be less productive.

For indoor growing we recommend a 20/4 light/dark cycle throughout.
