About this Hybrid Strain

Mother Lode OG is a heavy sativa-dominant hybrid that has rich blood lines. Grandparents include strains such as Jack Herer, Sour Diesel, and Strawberry Cough. A breeder named Knutsel out of Holland took his favorite sativa, Double Strawberry Diesel and crossed it with the indica-heavy Hashplant to create a clone. This clone was then crossed with the powerful Sativa, Killingfields. The result was Mother Lode OG, a magnificent strain to behold with fluffy, bright-green buds that are shaped like pinecones. Thin, bright orange pistils can be seen evenly scattered throughout it as if they were woven in with thread.

The odor of Mother Lode OG might be used as an indicator of its potency as a heavy musk of gasoline and skunk penetrate the air upon opening the jar. When burning Mother Lode OG, the pleasant flavors of strawberry and spicy diesel blend inside the mouth.

A few minutes after consuming, reviewers have claimed to feel content as their aches and pains noticeably subsided. There was an increase in energy, so much that some forgot about their headaches completely.

Motherlode kush

Madkush X Motherlode

• Combination of high and stoned

• Strong /heavy smell

Benefits of the Motherlode kush

This hybrid has been developed to lean towards the Indica dominant side, which means that there are predominantly indica type plants with an average flowering time of 8-9 weeks. The Motherlode kush provides easy-to-grow plants that quickly fill your space. This is the advantage of a hybrid plant and optimally used in this crossing. Very potent strain with diesel, Herijuana and kush influences.

Why choose Motherlode kush seeds

If you’re a fan of extremely strong stoned with a good dose of high then this is the kind where you’re looking. Due to the parents that were used in this species, different old school types come up with smell, taste and effect. If you want a strong growing plant but still indica dominant buds then the motherlode-kush is the strain for you!

How Motherlode kush originated

The Madkush (Madscientist X pre98 bubba kush) mother we have used in this excels in beautiful bud structure and Christmas tree type compact growth. Heavy weighing and especially strong smelling buds with an overtone of kush and herijuana, the herijuana influence comes from the Madscientist (herijuana X white widow).

The pollinating mother is the selected Motherlode clone which is described in detail in the accompanying product page. Briefly described, this mother is a combination of diesel and fruit with a slightly more exuberant growth as the Madkush. The combination of these two provides various plant types ranging from strong Indica to Indica with a touch of hybrid, the same goes for the smell and taste and effect.

Seeds are developed by Knutsel and Sannie.

Flowering and growth of Motherlodekush

Because neither parents are not tall growers, the Motherlode kush will remain low on average for a hybrid plant. It will take relatively few of these beautiful wide plants to accomplish a nicely filled space. This species lends itself perfectly for a SOG (sea of green) setting without the need for training. In case she becomes too tall, she can be tied up.

The flowering phenomena start to appear shortly after the clock is converted to 12/12, depending on the pot size and the size of the plant in ratio to the pot size when put in bloom. It might be wise to place a stick next to the plants for extra support as the buds can cause the plant to tip over or even worse, break them.

Yield and harvest of the Motherlode kush seeds

Apart from the main advantages such as smell, taste and results of the harvest, the Motherlode kush also puts a nice weight in the scale which ensures that there is more than enough to enjoy of all that yumminess. A harvest of 500 grams or more under a 600 Watt lamp is easily feasible.

Medicinal properties of Motherlode kush

Thanks to the combination of High and Stoned, Motherlode Kush is very versatile for medicinal purposes. Due to the very high THC content of 25% or more, it creates an explosive high with an existing stoned which is experienced afterward. The narcotic effect makes this type extra suitable for patients with ADD / ADHD and can be used as a muscle relaxant.

Flowering time means the time the plant/buds need to get fully ripe (harvesting time) and we measure this time from the clock is turned on 12/12 cicle.

Plants from different country’s and area’s can have different flowering time’s. These are putted in groups like : Indica / Sativa / Hybride / ruduralis. Al these type of plants have different flowering periods and are mentioned in the seeds feature.

A indica type of plant has a shorter flowering period from around the 7-9 weeks while sativa’s can have flowering periods from 10-13 weeks or more. The hybride is a combination from those plants with flowering times that will be in between so around the 10 weeks.

The grow period of seedlings is always at least 3-4 weeks, this grow period they will take and it doesnt matter if tthe clock is on 18/6 or 12/12. The 12/12 from start method is a good method but sanni shop advice’s to use hybride’s or sativa’s to be sure you get the space nicely filled. With indica type of plants we advice to put in more plants on a m2 like example 16-24 plants on a m2

The grow period is also depending on the type of plants even as the amount of plants on a m2. A sativa dominant plant need a shorter grow period as a indica type of plant.For example a grow room from 1m2 filled with 9 sativa’s would need almost no grow period to fill the space while a indica type of plant needs 3-4 weeks to fill up the same space before you can switch the colock to 12/12. This is why its better to use more indica type of plants on a m2. In this way the sativa’s dont have to take so much longer in total as a indica plant.

Sativa type plants grow for another 3-5 weeks after putting the clock on 12/12 while indica’s grow for 2-3 weeks after the clock is on 12/12. This is usable info to prodict youre own veg and flo period with a filled up grow room

The harvest is as big as the weakest link !

Sannie shop counts the harvest in m2 (600 watt) and flowering period. It should not sound weird that sativa plants have longer flowering periods but also the plants with the highest harvest in grams. Indica’s will have shorter flowering time as that a sativa has, the length of the flo time and amount off harvest should be counted beside each other. Hybrid plants have the best of both worlds and can give good harvest in a average flo period of around the 10 weeks

Methodes to enhance your results are :

SOG (sea of green) which means that the plants are growed in full force without topping or fimming

Scrog (screen of green) which means the plants are tied down on a scrog net and all the shoots will be on the same height

Climate is the most important link in you re grow room and is for 60-70 % responsible for the weight of you re harvest.

Sannie´s shop advice all our customers to grow on soil with organic nutrients to be sure you get the most natural taste and best harvest.The genetics can be choosed for taste-harvest and experience and last but not least preference. Knowing the strain you are growing will make sure you get the best harvest.

    up to 600 grams

Type of plant means like : indica / sativa / hybride – auto flower

Indica type of plant are short and busy which tend to grow wide instead of tall, indica is shorter in flowering time but needs more veg time to fill up the space.

Indica type of plants gives a more stoned feeling which are preferred by medical users, stoned feeling is more in the body.

Hybrid type of plants are hanging between the indica and the sativa type of plants which give them also the properties form both, they grow to medium heights and need more space as there indica sisters, 5-9 plants on 1m2 will be filling up the space nicely.

Because they are crosses between indica and sativa type of plant we as breeder try to collect the best of both worlds in one seeds,

The hybrid’s can give a stoned/high or a combination feeling, it depends which type of hybrid you will get, for commercial growing the hybrids are favorite

Sativa type of plants need space and height and you need less plants on a m2 to fill up the space, she can grow to big heights, the last years there is a hype of growing sativa’s in a scrog method.

Sativa’s give a good and balanced high and will take you re brain to another dimension instead of locking you into you re bank.

How much seeds will there be in one pack.

I popped 5 of the Motherlode Kush Fem seeds outdoors in early July around 36N latitude. I topped them at the 3rd node and gave 3 of them away. I kept the two most vigorous growers. They got strong direct sunlight from about 8am to 6pm. Light got a little shorter going later into the season. Temps during July and Aug were as high as 100F but more generally around 92F. Temps in Sep were around 85-90F. Oct was 75-85F

They grew with approx 2″ internodal spacing. The fan leaves were smaller than previous indica grows. The leaves were light green. They never got deep rich green that I expect with veg nutrients. They took well to being topped and formed several main branches. I had them going in 5gal pots. In hindsight, I should have used 10gal pots, but I didn’t expect them to get as big and be as thirsty as they were. They were very thirsty, drinking much more than White Widow growing along side them.

In flower, they stretched about 20in to an overall height of about 48in. First signs of pistils was on Aug 10th. First cloudy trichs on Oct 11th. Estimate will be ready to chop on 18 Oct. That makes it 10 weeks from first pistils to harvest.

The growth structure, leaf shape, size, and color among all 5 plants was very consistent. Of the two I kept, they have distinctly different scents. One is earthy sandalwood, the other is bubblegum fruity. The leaves yellowed a lot during flowering, and they were getting the same nutes as other varieties that were growing along side them and were much more green. I’m not sure if that means the Motherlode Kush likes more N, or it just always has light green leaves. Anyway, the buds filled out nicely during flower. The plant that smelled fruity had the fan leaves around the main buds turn black. The more earthy scented plant just stayed yellowish-green. It is very sticky, crystal-covered, resinous, fat, medium to high density buds, with lots of good side buds. The density is good, but it’s not like rocks. Production is above average per plant (per my previous experience). Looks like it’s going to be very good.

I kept cuts of both to use for mothers, and I might get more beans to see if I discover any other phenos. I crossed both with a very vigorous Triple Pakistan male I got from Sannie. I’m excited to see what those beans make.

I gave 4/5 stars because I save that 5th star for something really special. The Motherlode Kush was very good and easy to grow. I recommend it for sure.

Motherlode kush is a indica dominant hybrid with a strong taste and a lot of potency
