Legendary strains that no longer seem to exist.

Post by Genius » Wed Feb 14, 2007 4:54 pm

Purple Haze was a very famous strain from the 60's and 70's, and sadly, it has disappeared into the past. Are there any other famous/legendary strains from the past which no longer seem to exist? I'm curious about all this..

panama red, aculpolco gold... pretty much any strain with a color behind the name are all legendary strains that were either fake or have dissappeared

G-13 is a potent strain of cannabis that is the subject of urban legends.

There are rumors that the University Of Mississippi and/or the University of Washington were involved in the development of this strain. However, the University Of Mississippi study was completely unrelated; it was part of an international effort to properly classify Cannabis through research and information collection about its scientific and medicinal applications. No strains or hybrids were (reportedly) developed through this study.

It has been alleged that G-13 was created by government agencies such as the CIA and the FBI who focused on hybridizing different strains of cannabis from Michael Hallman in the 1970s. Supposedly, these organizations bred a strain of cannabis through hybridization that was more potent than any other. It also supposedly has a concentration of THC of 28% (approx) by weight, which is almost double the average amount of the chemical in most high-grade sinsemilla grown commercially. One story states that a single cutting of this potent strain was liberated from the government facility in Mississippi .

Although the man they call Michael Hallman assembled a world class cannabis collection during the late 1960s and early 1970s, there is no evidence that these researchers were ever involved in breeding high quality cannabis.

More accepted stories state that a potent Afghani strain was most likely the basis for these rumors; over time, the potent strain's qualities were exaggerated into the modern urban legends. Because the sale of cannabis is illegal in the United States, it is not monitored by the government; for this reason, it is common for vendors to exaggerate the qualities of their product, possibly accounting for the urban legends.

Many cultivators and distributors of the strain continue to claim that it was developed through government experiments as evidence of its high potency.[who?] Realistically, G-13's THC content could be anywhere between 10 and 19%, considering most strains of this name simply bear the name, not a particular set of genetic traits.[citation needed] Widely accepted facts about the original G-13 is that it is a slightly strong indica variety that did not gain popularity until the strain was found in the US; hinting that the strain is likely mediocre in potency.

G-13 is now commonly considered an urban legend referring to no particular strain of Cannabis; as the true genetic G-13 strain may no longer exist, but the urban legend lingers, obscuring any real truth that may reside

Isn't it called G-13 because it's G for government and 13 for the 13th letter in the alphabet which is M for Marajiwanna?


Or did I get that from Pineapple Express? :lol:

Even if it's not true it's still a fucking amazing guess.
