Oaxaca weed seeds

The Old school Oaxacan

I just got back from the rec store and bought a gram of Sour Cookies rosin. I dabbed it and it tasted delicious. It reminded me of an old strain of weed that we used to buy on occasion back in the 70’s in the midwest. We called it “Oaxacan” (sounds like WAH HAwK AN). It was bright green and the seeds were very shiny (oily), dark, chocolate-brown with no striping. The seed casings were very thin and rather fragile -broke easily if you pressed on them. The buds were full of them and there was very little left after they were separated. Again, the bright green color was very unique, as well. It was a kind of neon-green. The taste was very earthy and mossy and left a lingering aftertaste on the pallet -like when you walk into a greenhouse on a hot day – that organic, “planty” smell. I remember that, at the time, it wasn’t even the desirable flavor! We all were trying to cop the Columbian and other similar “gold” strains. The Oaxacan was just okay. But I remember it. and that memory of it made me about 45 years younger! LOL!

Anyway, I was happy to have found a taste and smell that took me back in time.

I grew Oaxacan Sativa in early 2000s. They were freebies from Seed Direct or Seed Boutique cant remember which name Gypsy went by then. They were vigorous big thick leaved plants. They were not ment for indoor but i didnt know any better then. Grew the best one outside one season and was wonderful with a great uppy high with a earthy flavor like you said.

I also have Sour Cookies from Dank genetics going now. Ran 2 then another 2 running now. One of the first 2 i grew has one of the greatest highs ive had comfort wise, really potent and very euphoric with no paranoia. I really like the cookie they used in the cross, no mint like the forum cut which i sort of despise in crosses.

The most earthy tasting strain ive ever ran was a Alien x Fire OG from Carpe Diem. Tasted like you were eating a bag of HP promix with a hint of cherry.

Hi Guys,
I’m always interested in discussions about old school genetics. I spend about a month in Oaxaca back in the 80s. Ciudad Oaxaca is a lovely vibrant Mexican town. but I spent most of my time at Zipolete beach on the south coast. Old hippie hangout and nude beach. Slept in a hammock for a couple bucks a night. The weed we got was very heady and a little harsh to smoke. No doubt minimal cure. It got you as high as you wanted to be.
Cheers,
JD

The Barney’s? I know its not the original in any way. Thought it was a straight Oaxacan.

I was talkin from the original Mexican landrace. Of course, Barneys one is a comercial hybrid, like a Skunk.

Back in the 70s, my neighbor got his hands on some Oaxacan seeds from a bag of weed that someone had scored in San Antonio. He planted them in his back yard and they grew to about two feet tall in a month or so. Then, unfortunately one of his relatives found the plants and ordered him to get rid of them. So he cut down the seedlings and dried them out to smoke (because after all it was Texas in the 70s and the available selection of reefer for sale was absolutely dismal). All I can say is that these leaves from immature plants kicked our teenage asses. Not flowers — just what would now be called “trim” and probably used to make topicals or extracts. I remember this distinctly because I had to drive home from my friend’s house after we smoked a joint and this was just about the only time cannabis sort of made me “hallucinate.” I was driving along and my headlights hit something ahead that I thought (briefly) was a giant green fluorescent rat in the middle of the road. I had to blink once or twice before I figured out it was just a big, leafy tree branch that had fallen in the street.

Those Oaxacan leaves gave me a “trippier” high than just about anything else I’ve smoked before or since. It was totally upbeat and it felt “clear-headed” but goofy as hell.

Booyah!

I never had a chance to try this amazing Sativa but the deep flavors and enveloping high make it sound really good. I love those earthy flavors but always associated those with Indicas.

Most of the sativas I’ve played around with have had more of a Citrusy Thai Haze type of spin to it. Strong but best paired with a good Indica to level you back off. This one sounds good on it’s own. Probably would make an amazing hybrid paired with a similar flavored Indica. I always like to match flavors in breeding pairs. One day maybe I’ll come across a sureal sativa like this.

It’s amazing how old flavors are now reapearing in hybrids that are many generations separated. Makes me hopeful that extinct strains are still hidden in the genepool.

Very nice hybrid Montuno! That’s gonna be incredible

Showhigh has Acapulco Gold and Oaxacan if you ask for it, I have them. Real thing there but helps if you can grow it high in the mountains outside if you want all the original effects.

This is a picture of a bud of Columbian Gold from the mid-70s. This was the second strongest marijuana I’ve ever smoked, the strongest was Panama Red circa 1973. Wish I had all the seeds in that jar right now I’d be fatter than Besos! ..notice the long skinny sativa leaves, also hard to see but everywhere that there is not gold it’s black including all through the bud, also had lots of big black seeds almost the size of bb’s

Basic / Breeders Info

Highland Oaxacan Gold is a sativa variety from Green Mountain Seeds and can be cultivated outdoors (where the plants will need a flowering time of ±70 days ) . Green Mountain Seeds’ Highland Oaxacan Gold is a THC dominant variety and is/was never available as feminized seeds.

Green Mountain Seeds’ Highland Oaxacan Gold Description

This Highland Mexican line is absolutely unique to Green Mountain Seeds. This Oaxacan Gold is the corner stone and backbone to most of Vermontman’s breeding work.

Vermontman’s strain of Oaxacan Gold came in on a shipment through Marthas Vineyard one Kilo made it into the hands of a good dealer friend of mine in 1979.

This new Mexican Sinsemilla ran a hefty unheard of price of $200.00 an ounce. The bag of buds were amazing spears of barely seeded golden goodness, I was out of stash and I could not pass these up. Score!

Upon smoking my first joint I knew this was something amazingly special as it hit me right between the eyes and took me to another totally high, powerfully trippy place that led to incessant breathtaking laughter that went on for hours. We nick named her Skull F***.

I immediately called back my buddy, lets call him Dennis, and asked if he could pick out every seed he could find. He halfheartedly agreed, after all he was a stoner. This was in late winter, with spring right around the corner. These first Oaxaca Gold seeds were started under Florescent lights then moved out to make shift plastic tents to be hardened off. At this point in time the only cannabis available to me that would finish outdoors (20 miles north of Boston) was some no name Indica that was fairly early and not overly potent nor consistent, but made round leafy buds with some purple and would finish at about head height.

So last frost date finally arrived, I went fast to work amending my favorite spot between north and southbound lanes of I 95. With access off a clover leaf and through a culvert that ran a clear clean brook right under the north bound lane of the highway. Great under cover access and a steady supply of fresh water, though to make this passage I had to wade through shin deep, and sometimes cold water. I had to take off my shoes, just role up my pants and just get my feet wet. I switched to trash sneakers after banging my toes on rocks in frigid brook.
So in the middle of a giant patch of Chinese Knot weed, tucked atop a hill open to all day sunlight smack dab center of the interstate I tilled and spread 100 lb sacks of Manure compost and oat straw I hauled slung over my shoulder. In fact it laid me up with back pain for days.

My regular staple Indica got premier spot right up in the front of the newly tilled and amended patch. My new Mexican plants all female about eight Oaxacan which were already a bit taller, looking totally different in structure lined the back two rows of the garden staggered in a diamond pattern. With the light gold color of the oat straw mulch conserving moisture and reflecting up the precious early June sunshine to the newly planted Mexican ladies. Back at home the Oaxacan males took up residence in pots.

Owing most of what I knew about growing cannabis at this time to High Times Magazine on learning sexing and so on I powered on.

Summer went on and these thin leaved Oaxacan beauties towered bigger and bigger. With ample supply of water from the brook and heat from the steamy sunny summer days, and relative privacy from the north and south bound lanes of traffic. Tucked in through all the summers months.

As conditions started changing, with late summer light still beaming strong a baby food jar carrying half opened male flowers of the multiple potted boys from back home were brought in and methodically broken open one by one releasing pollen very carefully onto one each of the earlier tagged single long buds one each of the precious new ladies.

The days grew shorter, the air grew a little more brisk fall started setting in.The swollen calyx’s steadily growing along with the density of the giant spears. By the end of Sept, the Indica ladies in the front of the garden were ready to come down.

But the slender leaved totally bushy now monster Oaxacan were thick with pistils in tight clusters that ran up the whole stem, at around 8 to 9 feet tall. Oct 7th came around, to an untrained eye the buds looked like they could be picked. But thank you again to High Times, I said not yet!

Heavy rains from a major tropical systems marching north slammed the patch with winds and heavy rain. The plants tied up with twine to the best of my ability to near by trees and tree branches cut and pushed into the earth like stakes, held them steady through their soaking. Though the massive arms of buds were left arching over under their own weight, and some of the main branches split and had to be mended with layers of twine wrapped around the main trunks to hold and mend themselves back together.

The soaking of the rains left them dripping and drooping, But no mold!

Then out came the sun again and the last of the promise of Fall warmth.

Over the next two weeks is where the magic really happened, the buds swelled like nothing I had ever seen before. Light to medium frosts hit, they seemed not at all negatively affected.

Now the third week in October the landscape all around turned autumn gold and red and the Chinese Knot weed now dropping the last of their yellowing leaves and the greener than green towering Oaxacans were losing their last bit of cover, time to act.

So under the cover of nights darkness and dimmed out glare of rush hour traffics lights end, I coined the phrase, Mid nite farmer. Bag after bag cut and stuffed, and that all to important one separate bag that held the one pollinated heavily seeded branch of each spectacular Oaxacan lady who saw her last moon lit night. While the air filled with the sweet knock out fragrance of fresh Balsam fir forest, fruit and of course victory, a successful harvest.

This is how this unique Oaxacan Gold line started with me on my life journey.

Mold Resistance: Very high
Fragrance: Definitely a low odor strain, but sticking your face into a sack full Oaxacan Gold makes you upon first whiff want to just climb into the bag and breath. Slight Balsam fir, hash, incense, slight fruit.

Potency: Powerful! Very high. Hits fast! First right between the eyes but in the most pleasurable way. Very motivational but you might forget what you were doing.
terrific for Socializing, but you might forget what you are saying which can lead to gut busting group Laughter.
Cerebral, reflective, great for hikes or gardening or just being in nature, my artist friend says it lends him well to falling into his painting.

Taste: Fast cure buds:
Very smooth lung expansive, have a bit of a pine, floral, very slight fruit very easy on your throat. I liken it to a really fine dry wine, very subtle not like the loudness of most of today’s strains in taste but certainly keeps up in potency while remaining impeccably and definitively unique.
Taste: long cure
Like a fine wine, not to sweet, but also not void of sweetness..
Hits the Palate with creamy goodness, extremely reminiscent of classic old school Thai stick, loose Thai or Gold Buddha stick.

Culture: needs a longer veg time to carry massive weighty buds. Sensitive to heavy feeds of organic or synthetic Through selective breeding time has been shortened to end of Sept to first week Oct outdoors.

In shorter more northern or in mountainous regions finishes wonderfully in same time frame but exemplary results are realized when brought in and finished under red heavy LED or HID lights, best under LED.

After many years of culture an anomaly occurred, purple pigments started to show on the advent of switching to LED grow lights.

These traits were selected by using males with red stems and females with purple calyx to bring out a totally purple line with a slightly more blue green foliage and very wonderful purple calyx and buds upon finish. This expression became especially more pronounced when being grown under red heavy Led grow lights and is not temperature dependent with that development a slight more berry to the fragrance became endemic to the Oaxacan Gold Purple line. This Oaxacan gold strain now runs in two parallel lines one green one purple just only slightly different from each other but both as wonderfully consistent as clones but certainly each with their own merits.

Aromas: dried fruits,floral,sweet cream,lemon,pepper, gentle haze spices
Flavours: sweet cream,dried fruit,medicine
Effects: Happy,Creative,Playful,Energetic, Euphoric,Clear. 100% Tropical sativa with 100% Tropical effects.
Characteristics: A massively tropical plant of huge vigour and elegance with a beautiful mix of flavours and aromas from the regions
Grow Type: Outdoors,greenhouse,indoors (very experienced growers)
Breeder: Grover Sativa

The mother is a classic F1 between a Oaxaca sativa, a very aromatic female with a complex lemon-based terpene profile and a Panamanian sativa of huge yields, resin production and flower quality (a ‘reversed’ female with huge bracts and resin production and a very good flower to leaf ratio.) The aromas are mainly lemon, vanilla and sugary gum.

The father is a 100% pure haze with a fantastic frame and huge vigour. Very heavily leaning to the Colombian side of the phenotypes.

The F1 mother chosen for this cross was the most impressive in terms of the aromatic qualities and also extremely high in terms of the resin qualities. The yields were also very generous, due to the hybrid vigour between these 2 true breeding lines.

The character of the Mexican, from the southern state of Oaxaca, is more towards the classic happy Mexicans of the 70’s than some of the more crazy Oaxacans. Very clear and bright, mentally relaxed and happy effects. The Panama has a more elegant and dreamy quality about it but also pure sativa.

The combined effects mean that the F1 mother are powerfully psychoactive. Very vibrant and creative and full of energy. The pure Haze adds a real zip to the other side, the energetic, electric side, maybe a tiny little piece of craziness. A pure haze father was chosen to be used for this cross. It has been recently selected from a very old population of haze genetics, slightly more colourful than the pure green “thai” hazes.

All the hazes from this population had a tendency towards the Colombian phenotypes but this one male passed on qualities that were extremely Colombian not just in effect and aroma but even the ‘feel’ of the flowers. Still, this is a pure haze and also passes on those classic pure haze qualities to his progeny, too.

The combination will not let you down in any respects, really. If you loved the old Mexican and Colombian lines from the 70’s or want to try a haze hybrid unlike any you have tried so far, a 100% pure,tropical sativa, then this is the line for you!

The plants have extreme vigour. They will outgrow any height restrictions you impose. Indoors would be for the most experienced haze-onauts as this is a plant that wants to reach for the pure, blue sky. Grow her in the greenhouse or outdoors in a mediterranean or tropical climate and you will be rewarded with huge monsters carrying massive yields of high quality flowers, due to the sheer size of the plant even though the buds themselves are actually rather small.

The flowers grow right along almost vertical branches, from the middle to the outer edge. The innermost buds being exactly as high a quality as the ones on the outside. Minimal snazzlefratz or wasted popcorn flowers here. The flowers are small and contain very little leaf material and the structure of the plant is very open, so mould won’t be too much of an issue. Air can flow easily through the flowers and plant and the light can reach every part.

As for the quality of the flowers, it is from the very top. The resins are exquisite and encrust the branches and flowers from the start. The flower to leaf ratio is very good too as is the look of the small, tight buds themselves. The aromas and flavours are from Mexico with a Colombian supporting act. It is not a classic haze zest but there are some hazy aromas that you will recognise in the mix. The bag appeal is high but this is no commercial plant.

The highs are like the best quality versions of the classic Mexican and Colombian brick weed sativas of the 70s and 80s – but on a totally modern feeling flower (due to the more ‘highly worked’ Panamanian line). 100% sativa. 100% happy. Clear and with energy. Not quite so crazy like the more Thai style hazes.

The vigour is definitely something to behold but this does mean that indoors this plant is a menace. It will grow past your lights, past your extractor inlet and right to the ceiling. It is crazy tropical and crazy tall. Prune, bend, twist and do your magic dear haze growing wizards, for you will need to. The yields when growing indoors, due to the sheer length of the branches, will not be great. Take her outdoors. Let her breathe fresh air and see the sun.

Likewise with flowering times, the tropical way means that flowering times can be long. You can find slightly more compact phenotypes (with superb shaped frames) that will flower a few weeks quicker and carry a slightly more dreamy Panamanian effect but mainly these plants will need time to finish, true to the best pure hazes and Colombians.

These have been grown the organic way, with organic methods and they loved them. The all-round flower quality really is so high that It is like beauty within the vigorous beast. At the time of writing this is a very limited edition release (5 packs) but if it receives positive feedback a new release will be possible. Enjoy!

P.S. Even for hardened smokers, this is extremely strong, psychoactive and very introspective.
