Oh, and btw, just as an example. I have been talking about doing this since like 2013, but in 2015 Bethenny Frankle came out and said that she was going to do it.
http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/pic ... o-20160420

She never actually did it, but she was going to call it Skinny Girl Marijuana because THCv actually takes away your appetite instead of giving you the munchies. She didn't say she was making a THCv Strain, but the only way to make a Weightloss Marijuana is to make a THCv Strain, I was talking about it in 2013 comparing it to Hoodia Gordona (that Cactus that everyone was taking for Weightloss).

But these Strains are going to be both High in THCv, and have good Flavors. Pretty much no one in the World (unless anyone can find someone), is making Strains specifically to target THCv production. And I am going to do it with Good Flavors so that they can explode.

This isn't just going to be like Durban Poison, where it's like "Wow its good" but then you try another strain and maybe it tastes better, or maybe you decide you like Indicas more for a while, and you forget that Durban is good. Because you just thought of it as "another good strain".

These are going to be strains that are specifically targeted for THCv, so they will have the THCv kick of a Landrace like Durban, but they will also be amazing Flavors.


Everyone go on Weedmaps or Leafly right now, actually go do this, look in Denver and look up "Banana Crack", then look up "Banana Kush". See how many you find, they are pretty much non-existant, and the one place I found with Banana Kush had a 2 versions, and both were over priced, but the cheaper one was worse than most $25 8ths, and the better one was $61 an eighth.

What I am doing is not only creating Flavor Strains, from Flavor Strains that cost like $70 per 6 seeds, I am using those to add Flavor to THCv Strains.

So now that same "Wow" from Durban, and that same "I want a Flavor Strain", are going to be in 1 Strain. And not just 1 Strain, a whole line of Strains. And I will be giving out Clones and Seeds for free to anyone who wants them and who is in Colorado.

If you went to a Dispensary, and have been to dispensaries before, and you see:

White Widow
Purple Bud
Trainwreck
White Rhino
Girl Scout Cookies
OG Kush
Durban Poison
Gorilla Glue
Early Pearl
Strawberry Cough

What are most people most likely to pick?
The Girl Scout Cookies, the OG Kush and the Strawberry Cough, just because of name Recognition. And most people don't choose Durban Poison, because they think some guy made it in a closet with 60w lightbulbs and was trying to think of a spin on the word "Urban" and adding Poison to it. Honestly that is what most people think, and unless they randomly chose it and liked it, or read a thread on the internet like this, or had a friend tell them they smoked it and liked it, then usually they won't pick it. And usually people who are and aren't choosing it, are not aware that it has THCv, unless they read a thread like this.

And Girl Scout Cookies is half OG Kush and half Durban.


What I am doing is taking THCv Strains, including Early Durban, Malawi, etc, and crossing them with Flavor Strains, including Strawberry Diesel, Strawberry Stardawg, Banana Crack and Blue Mystic. And I also have a Hindu Kush to make a Kush line. And THCv is the main point.

I am not just creating THCv strains, eventually I will be creating Strains with higher THCv than any Strain that came before it. And they will have Heritage from well Established Dispensary Strains.

This is the blurb for Malawi Seeds from the Company I got them, from:

ACE Seeds - Malawi
After years of hard work and intense selections with sativas from all around the world, we can confirm that Malawi is the most powerful and psychedelic landrace sativa we know.
Its dense flowers of enormous trichomes compete with the most powerful indica/sativa and indica hybrids on the market in reference to their size and cannabinoids concentration.
The potency of their flowers is simply devastating, and it is especially recommended for experienced smokers that seek extreme sativa effects without renounce to an abundant harvest.

There are literally 0 Dispensaries as far as I have been able to find that carry this. Durban Poison is the only one you will find, if you are lucky.



The only people who aren't driven by name Recognition and just random names in general, are people looking for CBD and THC. There are some people only buying the highest CBD strains and the highest THC strains, but hardly anyone is out looking for THCv strains.


That is what I am about to change. I am about to create THCv Strains that can not be denied, people will choose them over other things.



First off, if you want 10 seeds for $20, you have to grow something standard, like White Widow, or Skunk. I am taking genetics from seeds that cost $70 for 6 seeds, seeds that come from years and years of breeding after White Widow existed, and are being sold at dispensaries for $61 for 1/8th (that is $61 for 3.5 grams for people who aren't in America, and when they grow these plants they get about 1/2 lb per plant.

And I am mixing those with THCv strains. And once I tell everyone what the 3rd strain I am mixing in (that will be after 2 months, so after the end of this harvest), and then again once I actually mix it in, everyone is going to start seeing what I am talking about. And around the same time there will probably be other people talking about the plants they grew from my seeds.

Since I did a little explanation of Amsterdam being connected to India and South Africa, I will do kind of a History of Dispensary Strains in America.

In the 60s it was all just good Landraces, all these Landraces like Malawi and Hindu Kush and things like that are actually good strains, you just have to find the good ones like those specific ones; and if you could get your hands on Alcapulco Gold from Mexico, that was the good stuff. And things started coming over from Amsterdam, so Skunk became Popular (and other things like Skunk mixes, for example "Holland's Hope"), and eventually random strains being grown around America made things like Bubblegum, Northern Lights and Alaskan Thunderfuck; and then White Widow was created by mixing Thai Landrace with Brazilian Landrace, and that changed everything. That is around the time Blueberry was made, and OG Kush was made, and things like Girl Scout Cookies actually came not long after.

And at that time there were a bunch of big breeders, like DJ Short who made Blueberry, and Neville, who is the namesake of Neville's Haze. He founded Sensi Seeds, which was basically the first seedbank (place to buy seeds). And there was Jack Herrer.

So that is basically where all the dispensary strains come from. California strains coming from people just growing outside for years and years, like Bubblegum and Trainwreck. Then some strains from Amsterdam.

Then what they did is start breeding those strains together, so they got more selective and the pool got smaller and smaller. No longer are people looking for Alcapulco Gold, and no one is even looking for strains made from it, or looking to make strains from it. Many people have dismissed good strains like that in favor of names like "Blueberry" and "Trainwreck". But that is where the Future is at. The Future is in these hidden Genetics that most people in America, and most people in the World, have ever seen before. And hardly anyone in the World has made crosses with.

And when I mentioned that Early Durban has less than 10 people on the internet talking about it, and it is a good strain, think about it this way.

Girl Scout Cookies may be the most popular individual strain in America, if not it is close. And it is just Durban F1 (a selected breed of Durban bred with Durban, but its own brother and sister seeds from the same parent plant) mixed with OG Kush. And maybe the second most popular, but not so sure about that, but still popular is Green Crack.

And Durban F1 X OG Kush is the actual Girl Scout Cookies, the most common form you will actual find in Dispensaries is Blim Burn seeds Girl Scout Cookies X Green Crack.

Green Crack is actually just a special Cut of Skunk #1 that someone found randomly in the genes of some seeds they bought, and they kept that lineage. So that is how Green Crack was made.

So very Probably the most Popular Marijuana Strain in the World is (Durban X OG Kush) X Green Crack. So basically (Durban X OG Kush) X Special Skunk#1 Cut

Early Durban is Durban X Skunk #1, so it is basically the same exact thing as Girl Scout Cookies, but without the OG Kush... And less than 10 people are talking about it. When I cross that with Strawberry Stardawg, it is about to be amazing, and the Malawi cross could be everything from just super strong THCv to a whole New Flavor, but no matter what it will be a good THCv strain. Then I can cross that with a Flavor Strain cross.

So this is going to be crazy.

And I am just writing so much about this because I am actually doing it right now, and as far as I am aware no one else in the World is doing it. So I'm just trying to get all the information out, and in 2 Months I will actually have the buds from these plants and the seeds from these crosses, and I will start giving out the seeds and making videos of everything. But these strains being created will be documented, so if anyone wants any information on them in the future, here it is in pretty great detail.

Also, I have been topping these plants a lot, and some of them are at 12 and 16 main Colas (upper trunk/branches that take the place of the main trunk when the top is chopped), and I will top some of them 1 more time when I switch to flower on Friday.

And the General Rule of thumb is 1 oz per Cola, and each one has at least 4 Colas, and most of them have 8-16, and I will cut most of them one more time on Friday most likely. So I should get at least a quarter lb or half lb per plant, depending on the tops and size. The topping is also why they are kind of short and shrubby looking.

Also, I will switch them to Flower on Friday, but they are likely to grow another 1 to 3 feet during the 2 months of flower. So they will get bigger over these 2 months still. And the buds won't really even be noticeably forming until Month 1 is at its end, then the last 2 weeks they will basically be done but just get bigger and bigger.

The Shaivite Temple, Grow 1
This is a series of videos that will probably be around 100 Episodes. Right now it has all the tips and little secret things that you can do for the Veg Cycle (before the Marijuana Flowers start growing). On Friday I will make a video switching the lights to Flower Cycle, and then 2 Months after that I will be harvesting about 1/2 LB per plant, and seeds to start the New Strains.

http://shaivitetemple.org/epigenetics-plant-breeding/
These are two 27 year old Monkeys, the one that was given less food than he needed every day is on the right.



I personally had the idea of Epigenetic breeding before I even knew what Epigenetics was, and when I learned what Epigenetics was, it completely proved my theory; and my theory was also based on evidence. What gave me the idea for stress breeding was Bouncing Bear Botanicals. They had San Pedro Cactus in like 2006 or something that was labeled “SS” which stood for “Super Stressed”. And since the age of 14 I had started reading everything I possibly could about Alkaloids, so when I found out that their theory behind “SS” was that alkaloids were a defense mechanism, and many plants had been shown to have alkaloids appear in larger amounts when introduced to slicing, stabbing, burning, and other forms of “Super Stress”. Their’s were Cacti that had been grown in harsh conditions, and stabbed and slashed. And the possibility was that that would have caused it to have more Mescaline.

Now THC is not exactly an Alkaloid, and no one knows if Stressing it will bring more out (so let’s find out). But UVB does bring out THCv, to protect from the UV rays. So there probably are ways to bring out more THC. And who cares if it brings out more in that particular generation, you can get the next Generation to be stronger, with higher THC content because of the stress of the parents. Epigenetics proves this.

I remember an old grower who said he had heard about people who used to hammer a nail into the stalk of their plant to make it produce more THC. And then someone else told me that they had known an old grower who would take his plants just before flower, and tie a cinder block to the top and stretch it out, then the branches would grow upwards like 3-6 plants, kind of like SCROG.



Most people breed plants by looking for “Vigor” and Vigor is usually a good sign that it is a good breeding plant? I actually will not water plants and let a bunch die; kind of a “only the strong survive” type test, and then only grow the ones that survive, because the other ones die. With the seedlings I started off with 1-7 seeds from each strain, and I now have 1 plant from each of those strains, because I let all the others die from underwatering, or being taken over by the other ones by being blocked from the light when their siblings got too big, or from the other ones taking over their Jiffy pack with their roots. So I don’t just look for Vigor, I look for Survivors.

Because my goal in Breeding originally was this:
I had come from Texas with 3,000 bagseeds or so from some bright green, Texas brick weed that was not bad except for that some energy had gone to making all the seeds. And I was using my Epigentic theory (before I knew about Epigenetics) in order to breed a “Ditch Weed strain” meaning that it was meant to be Johnny Appleseed-ed, and they would have good genetics for people to pull out of ditches, and people would not be mad to get pollen from a good Ditchweed. Basically just trying to make a strain that could survive anything, and basically make an American landrace.

Now I am basically doing the same thing, but with better genetics. I am going to be giving out seeds and clones, and mixing various landrace strains, and finding the plants that are survivors and have the best flavors and smells and THCv content. It’s just that right now I am not as focused on the survivors, I am just breeding the plants for now, and will be focusing more on the survivor aspect in later grows, once I have a good strain. But I will always find the best plants by letting a few die.



You know how you have probably had the thought that White people came from Cold, and then someone told you that it was more complicated than that, or just straight up told you you were wrong?

According to Epigenetics, you weren’t “wrong”, but you weren’t getting the whole picture. Epigenetics says that the likely reason for White people, is more likely a mixture of factors, 1 not the Cold and the Snow like a White Rabbit using Camouflage, but White people’s skin is actually due to a lack of UVB rays; which could either be accounted to the Climate, or living in Caves (like how you can see through a Cave Fish’s skin, and they have no eyes). Then there is also the possible factor of Albinos coming from Africa (Albinos are still taboo in many African tribes) and mixing with the Cave/Cold people, which is called “Recombination” of genetic material. For example, if one of the 2 sets of Darwin’s Finches made their way to the mainland, then on the mainland 2 groups were made because of a Mountain range that separated 2 groups of the 1 set for like 100,000 years; then at the end of that 100,000 years that new 3 species goes back to the island and breeds with the first one; Recombination. Then there is also the factor of things like Sickle Cell and Lactose Intolerance in higher rates in non-White genetics; the Sickle Cell is a protection from Malaria (and White people don’t have that protection), but Lactose Tolerance could be from living on Dairy in the Caves. Cheese and all that is just rotten milk and lasts a long time.

And all these factors had small effects on White DNA, making White people.

A more short term example is a test they have done with Mice, as well as the Monkey test where one Monkey was given less food than it needed over 27 years and it was much more vital (fuller hair, standing taller, etc) than the one that had gotten all the food it needed during the 27 years. In the Mouse experiment they took a mouse and had her live in a room with an electric floor, and they would put a lemon scent in the room, and shock her randomly. Then she got pregnant and when she had babies, every time they smelled lemons they would freak out like they were being shocked.

There are tons of experiments that have been done, and this is a completely accepted Science. And it’s not Human Science, or Mouse Science, or Monkey Science, it’s Genetic Science; so it applies to anything with DNA.



And just an example of how something like Lactose Intolerance would be turned to Lactose Tolerance. Everyone in a society that can’t survive on cheese because their body won’t take another animal’s rotten milk, dies, and everyone left is the new Genetic forefathers of those people. There may be many things that used to be poison to some humans, no one knows, because everyone that was allergic enough to make things like Broccoli or Beef poison to them, are all pretty much dead if they existed. There are a Million mutations that Humans may have gone through that are actually gone now, we just don’t know because it wasn’t the right mutation at the right time. Or the people with the mutation to accept it are the only ones left. Same thing happened with Ebola and the Plague.



Just an example of what someone could do:

If you literally infested a room with spider mites on purpose, then grow plants in that room for years, and breed only the ones that it seemed like the Spider Mites were ignoring more than others. Then eventually you might have a Spider Mite resistant Strain. There have already been mold and fungal resistant strains such as Holland’s Hope, created for outdoor growing in Cold, Wet Climates.
