This is a rare Central American landrace offered by Ace Seeds and a great opportunity for discerning Sativa connoisseurs and breeders. Since this strain is made available as regular seeds it's an opportunity for preserving the genetics or creating your own hybrids.
Honduras Breeders Pack Standard contains 30 regular seeds (10 regular seeds/ per line):
- Colombian pheno: It has the same growing and flowering habits than the 'Mexican' pheno, but clearly stands out for having more refined, pleasant and stronger floral aromas. It also has the strongest, most balanced and complex effects, the highest THC and terpene content. This line flowers frequently with beautiful purple colours (especially outdoors with colder temperatures), reminiscent trait from the old purple Colombian Sativa heritage, very similar to Purple Haze, but with a faster maturation and better yield.
- Mexican pheno: The aroma and taste are mainly earthy, herbal and woody like many old Mexicans, with a slight background of fermented citrus. This pheno produces plants with the most electric, stimulant and clear effects, almost like a discharge of pure energy of 1 hour duration, without ceiling or hangover. The THC content of this 'Mexican' pheno is soft (compared with modern hybrids): around 6-9 %, with none or very little CBD/CBG content.
- Rare, late flowering pheno: An interesting pheno with creamy tropical aromas and excellent stimulating effect. The yield and size of the plant was a bit smaller than her sisters, the flowering time was 1-2 weeks longer than average with less numerous, but bigger pistils. The effect is very electric, clear, motivating, similar to the Mexican pheno, but more complex and intense.
Honduras' growing structure, flowering time, flower distribution and overall appearance are reminiscent of the old long flowering and high yielding lowland Colombians. On the other hand, the effect and terpenes are closer to the old Mexican Sativas of clean, happy and positive effects. The effect has a stimulant component similar to the most exciting and nervous African Sativas.
Honduras is a classical tropical Sativa of huge yield, high calyx-leaf ratio, vigour and excellent resistance against the adverse weather conditions of warm humid climates (rain and fungus).
Honduras requires a lot of patience to grow. Indoor you should use 400-600W HPS and provide space since this is a branchy tall plant. Switch her into flowering after 15 days from seed, or starting from clones rooted for at least 7 days. The plants are very vigorous due to their landrace genetics. Ace Seeds suggests a 11/13 light cycle for flowering to trigger bud development, avoid reflowerings, and excessive stretching. This strain repsonds well to SOG, SCROG and super-cropping. Outdoor cultivation works best in tropical climates, warm coastal regions, Mediterranean climate, and up to 43ºN. Heat and mold resistance is high as are the yields.
The THC levels range between moderate to high. Nevertheless, this is not so noticeable in the effect because Honduras has a very energizing, social high that is perfect for creativity, recreational time, spending time in nature, and staying up to party. Despite the mid-range potency she tends towards the nervous energy familiar in African strains. If you are prone to anxiety, racy heart, etc. this may not be a suitable strain to sample.
