This amazing strain was named after a well known white flower which is only found high up in the Alps. The strain is a hybrid of North Indian, Skunk, and Hindu Kush which makes it Indica dominant whilst also having a good Sativa kick to it.
Hindu Kush is an extremely popular pure Indica which is named after a mountain range which runs between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
It has a mental effect which is very different to most Indicas which is both calm and active. Skunk is an ever popular strain which is used in many different hybrids.
Skunk was first bred in 1978 by a company called Dutch Passion which is. Edelweiss used to be found all over Switzerland but unfortunately it is now simply and indoor strain.
The strain and its namesake share some similar visual qualities such as a thick white resinous coating on small star shaped leaves. It really is a rather pretty plant as well as being extremely high quality.
This strain is also feminised which simply means that it will only grow into female plants. This method of growing has become immensely popular since it was first created by Dutch Passion.
For a long time male plants have been nothing but a hindrance to growers everywhere. They take up valuable space, time, and money which could better be used on the female plants.
A grower would have to purchase twice as many regular seeds to receive the same number of female plants. So feminised seeds not only save money but also space as the male plants no longer need to be removed from the crop, all of the space can be used by females.
This also means that a lot of time, that would be spent removing the male plants, is saved. The breeding method by which these are brought about is at once simple to explain and complicated to execute.
Essentially female plants are treated in such a way that they produce feminised pollen. This pollen can be used to fertilise a female plant so that the only genetics passed on to the seeds are female ones.
Thus, the seeds can only grow into female plants. These seeds are also likely to be higher in quality and in uniformity.
This strain flowers in just 50 - 65 days and can be grown indoors and outdoors.
Please remember that the growing of cannabis plants and the cultivation of seeds is illegal in some countries - please check the laws of your country and don't be growing any plants if it is against your country's laws.
