Digweed is a strain which was created by the breeders at House of the Great Gardener by crossing Sweet Tooth and Afghani genetics. Sweet Tooth is an award winning strain which won the much sought after High Times Cannabis Cup in 2001. It gives off a very sweet smell of flowers and berries as well as euphoric effects. It was created from a mixture of high quality landrace strains coming from Hawaii, Nepal and Afghanistan. Sweet Tooth is often recommended for those who suffer from stress or headaches.
Digweed received its name from a rather peculiar source. It is named after the 18 year old cat belonging to the breeders at House of the Great Gardener which has a bit of a penchant for eating cannabis. It is recommended as a pain relief strain and its relaxing properties make it ideal for those who have trouble sleeping or are suffering from stress related illnesses. Digweed is a fast flowering plant which produces a lot of large branches and large, tight buds. This strain comes in two forms from House of the Great Gardener, regular and feminised.
For a long while now feminised seeds have been rising in popularity amongst the cannabis community. This is because they not only make growing much easier, for those who do not wish to breed their own crops, but it actually positively affects the strain itself. 80% of strains which have been feminised have shown marked improvement in both their quality and stability. Feminised seeds are created through a special breeding process using only female plants. This process should only be attempted by experienced breeders. Females are capable, if stressed properly, of producing a feminised pollen. This pollen is very similar to the pollen produced by the male plants and can also be used to fertilise another female. The resulting seeds will only contain female genetic material meaning that they will only grow into female plants. This is perfect for the growers who do not need the male plants. If a grower has no interest in breeding the male plants are less than useless. They can actually damage the female plants and so they have to be removed from the crop before the flowering period. This not only wastes the growers time but around half of the money that they spent on the seeds.
Digweed is an impressive strain with a rather short flowering period of 7 weeks.
