Greenthumb’s strains are way underappreciated and yes his Chemdawg is wickedly good

Cali Connection -vs- Dr Greenthumb Seeds

Did a mixed grow of Cali Connection and DR Greenthumb Seeds and results:
Cost per pack (sample)
CC Tahoe= $125
DRGT OG KUSH=200
Doc’s seeds are almost twice the price but they are S1’s.
Yields:
CC Tahoe = 1.9 oz’s per plant avg. 40 day veg 70 day flower
DRGT OG = 2.8 oz’s per plant 40 day veg 55 day flower
Smoke report:
CC Tahoe = taste 8.5 bud density 6.0
high 8.5 (with 3 hits) duration of high 45 mins
DRGT OG = taste 9.5 bud density 8.5
high 9.0 (2 hits) duration 2 hours

Conclusion: although DRGT seeds are very expensive the final cost after comparing to one of the best strains out there, the cost is very competetive.
There was also some DNA Genetic strains (OG #18 and LA Confidential) that were not up to par for comparison.
DRGT’s experiance really comes out after growing out his strains. IMO CC strains are over hyped and DRGT’s are under hyped. There were also other strains grown DRGT Chemdawg’s which is more powerful than both the above strains with avg. yields of 4.5 oz’s per plant.
DRGT wins hands down with potency and yields

Spot on! I have grown most of Greenthumb’s gear over the past decade and have never been disappointed. I don’t know how he does it but I have never seen a hermy or male in his fems even when I tried to induce one. All the strains I got were the truest representations of what I was looking for so it was good value for money I figure.

Well if you got almost an extra ounce more per plant and it took 1/3 less smoke for the desired effect and it lasted more than twice as long and the taste was better and the bud density was better and it was harvested 2 weeks earlier it sure makes the Dr. Greenthumb plants look like a bargain to me at $75 more. That extra 22+ grams per plant alone pays for the whole thing and when you multiply that by 10 plants.

So I have wasted half a season waiting for nothing (to be told to f off) !

Beware Of Dr Greenthumb.

Had a really bad experience with Dr Greenthumb seedbank and thought the community should know!
I am in a country which still hunts down and prosecutes smokers,growers etc so being careful is a must!
I placed an order (with Cash) and posted it to Dr Grenthumb in Canada as I had heard good things.

My wife has severe breast cancer so we are in dire need of good quality genetics, and so that is why we ordered through them, well we have waited and waited, and finally contacted them to ask what, where, why etc, about our order, and were told, “we never received it” .. Ok fair enough, So I waited another 2 weeks, emailed them asking what the situation was and if there was any news, and was told “we don’t have your order, don’t email again and f off. ”
Now I don’t know about you guys, but to me that is way too far!
Fair enough you are having a bad day etc, but don’t tell a customer to F off! We are the reason they are in business, without customers, business don’t succeed, so it is a fine balance, but this was ridiculous!

So I have wasted half a season waiting for nothing (to be told to f off) !

I’m out 500$ and will NEVER order through them again, and I will warn others to be very wary of them!

Many peeps send cash and get good results. I won’t send cash via mail. Ever.

International Money orders can be bought at many places. and some seedbanks now take Bitcoins as well. I’d never use a plastic card either. And I’d never have seeds delivered directly to an address where you plan to grow.

I do believe you could have gotten a USPS tracker number to insure that it was received..or not. OTOH, I guess they could say they received your mail but there was no money inside.

Thanks for the advice and thoughts guys.

I know, I really did stuff up, I have ruined the season for my wife, I used nearly all of my tax return to get the non existant seeds, and the only reason I did order through Dr Greenthumb was I was duped by good marketing and a mate who spoke well of there stuff.
I don’t think companies such as Dr GT realise the impact of there actions.
Yes I was foolish to send cash unregistered, but I believe he received it.
The season has been nearly lost due to waiting for nothing, the medicine I was hoping to have for my wife seems to be slipping out of my grasp, and to be honest the bushy weed we can get here is so poor it has no real benefit I think, more psychological.
So I still haven’t had the guts to break it to my wife, she has a lot of other stresses to deal with lately so I thought my best bet would be to order from here and just hope for the best.
There has been a couple of strains ive read about on here, I feel would really help her, Being in Aus we don’t get any of these varieties especially clone only ones, so varieties such as bruce banner , face off og, etc that have a high potency we just don’t see really interest me
Hence why I was ordering some varieties from Dr Greenthumb in the first place!

Anyways if this helps one other person from having to go through what I have then I will be glad to have helped.

I hate the punk ass fools in the cannabis buisness. I don’t get it, if I screwed my customers that way I would be shot by now. Bad Karma for Dr. Greenthumb.

If you weren’t in Aus, I would hook you up in a second. Sorry for your loss, hope your wife starts feeling better.

Thankyou so much for your words Bulldog11 (fantastic photo of your dog by the way!) WE have had a bad run, but hopefully things pick up soon.

Unfortunatel that seems to my biggest hurdle, being in Aus, I believe that’s probably why he took my money also, im just so far away to be able to do anything, and the other side of that is being able to aquire good honest genetics for very sick people.
