Arctic Genetics’ Rainbow Mints Description

Mother: animal mints bx1 (wedding cake x animal mints f1) from seedjunky genetics

– most amazing and stabile phenotype, compact layer of thricomes all over, our inhouse favourite cultivar for years, with a very (almost terribly) potent ‘nighttime only’ punch when smoked. Hunted and selected from a phenohunt with high rate of hermaphrodites in most siblings while keeper cut havent shown any traits of it even when induced with light schedule stress. The stability of this phenotype is something we expect to be needing to work with down the line of future generations and/or backcrosses.

Father: rainbow truffle (gelato #33 x zkittlezwood [zkittlez x kirkwood OG]) from uprising seedco.

– selected for vigour, heavy odours of stem rub, structure and of course showing no stress signs during testing.�

Not to forget the female winner from this hunt was ridiculously proper smoke, expressing a variety of colors under a cute little layer of thricome glands.

All over awesomeness speaking to you from this one from the start.

Both mother and the father/donor’s sister are yielding very well, selected for terpenes profiles and having zkittlez among the other powerhouse strains in this cross, ensures us that it will give good possibilities to find that flat on your ass high type of phenotypes, that both yield well, express color variations and reek of goodness, smells ranging from infamous sweet zkittlez, the smell we never quite managed to hate, (not for lack of trying), to the more dank gelato fragrances, all way over to that american strong weed terpene profile animal mints brings.

It’s safe to assume there will be a variety of colors in the progenys, thricome covered flowers that packs a mean punch.

This is a H1 Poly hybrid cross released for the phenohunters with couple of years in their belt, who can spot a hermaphrodite trait a mile away, the variety will be large, and the stabilizing process has yet to be started in this generation. If you are looking for more uniform phenotypes, expressing many similar traits and typically match the pictures taken by the breeder, we recommend you go for the next generations (H2,H3, H4) or the backcrosses (BC1, BC2 so on), which both will be worked towards stabilizing them and locking in certain traits from the breeder’s goals. (aiming to breed the desided traits true, and removing undesirable traits in the process of line breeding (IBL) and/or backcrossing (cubing) the strain.)

                          That Arctic doomsday seed vault? There’s backup copies of cannabis in there, too. Lots.

                          This week, the “doomsday seed vault” (as it’s known in headlines, anyway) made the news because scientists made the first “withdrawal” from the remote arctic store. But there’s another reason to be excited about the underground vault on Norway’s Svalbard archipelago. Weed! And when shit gets real, we’re gonna need it.

                          Svalbard seed vault

                          Why did they take some seeds out? According to The Crop Trust, an affiliated seed bank in Syria couldn’t provide needed seeds to researchers in the Middle East because of the war in Syria. It’s kind of amazing that the Aleppo field station functioned through the war as long as it did. Now that it can’t, the mothership in the ice cliffs takes over.

                          But there’s more to be amazed about with this crazy Norwegian hidey-hole! It contains tons of beautiful magical cannabis seeds, because cannabis is an important plant that humans have used for everything from medicine to food to architecture to fashion to–well, getting high–for many thousands of years.

                          As this 17-minute Svalbard mini-documentary puts it, the vault is “built to withstand an extreme future.” That extreme future, thank heavens, will include marijuana. Can you even imagine an extreme future without pot? Perish the thought. But not the pot.

                          From a story on, written some time ago but worth a new look today:

                          According to a analysis of Svalbard’s database, there are 21,500 cannabis seeds being held for safekeeping in the vault. That’s more weed seeds than there are asparagus, blueberry or raspberry seeds stored at the facility. There are more marijuana genetics in the “Doomsday Seed Vault” than there are for artichoke, cranberry and pear combined.

                          The stored cannabis seeds originate from at least 17 countries, some of which aren’t at all surprising, like The Netherlands. Five hundred of the marijuana seeds, however, come from North Korea. None originate from the United States.

                          While the government of Norway owns and operates the Svalbard vault itself, with assistance from the Nordic Genetic Research Center and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation-funded Global Crop Diversity Trust, the seeds are actually owned by the gene banks that stashed them there.

                          Since the facility opened in 2008, there have been 39 deposits of cannabis seeds by three separate organizations: the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research in Germany and the Nordic Genetic Resource Center, based in Sweden and Norway.

                          Most recently, on April 9 of this year the Austrian group deposited 1,000 seeds each from France, The Netherlands, Poland and its own country.
