Mother: We don’t make cannabis crosses based strictly on name, although at times it may appear as if we do, but really we just breed with our most tried-and-true, favorite garden performers. Cookies & Cream, x Dosidos is an In-House Genetics cross, which we hunted from seed. She was part of our regular lineup for 2-3 years before we accidentally lost her. Flower and clone customers always wanted more of her because she ‘had it all’. She has beautiful, dense, color-tinted, highly resinous buds with a great aroma, and a breeze to grow.
‘Father’/mother: White IX, the female pollen-donor of this cross, was bred by Cannarado many years ago. We found this phenotype from seed 4 or 5 years ago ourselves and she’s been a garden stand-out ever since. The fact that we chose her for our very first feminized seed release says a lot! During our very first run though we weren’t quite sure about her because she seemed to grow kinda slow during the vegetative cycle and in flower too, but during weeks 6 through 9 she really put on quite the performance, more than compensating for the shortcomings we thought she might’ve had! We were quick to judge and she showed us just how quick she can stack fat buds on those stocky branches of hers. The flowers will continue to swell until they topple over, paying no mind to the support stakes tied to them. The leaves generally remain dark green and canoe-upwards because of the resin-rails that encrust the edges of the leaves. The flowers are dense and heavy. And what about the aroma? She has a loud, deep, dank, pine-skunk, acetone nose… the one that so many folks are fond of these days. The thing that is so special about her though is that unlike many OGs or Cookie varietals that grow tall and lanky, this lady keeps to herself, staying on the shorter, more compact side throughout her life, which we love. Her many highly desirable traits really shine through in this feminized cross.
Cookies & Cream, Dosidos, and White IX are world renowned strains that hail from some of the best of the best in the world. But we didn’t use them because of the sequence of letters that make up the words of their names… we used them because they have proven to be superior garden performers, and make terrific medicine. And while most performances in this industry are in fact, worthwhile, these Showstoppers are deserving of a prolonged applause, and one that will continue for many years to come.
