Fast Buds: Automatic seeds made in USA
Straight from the West Coast of the USA, FastBuds arrives at Alchimiaweb, a cannabis seed bank focused on developing top quality automatic and feminised varieties with the best traits of the most renowned genetics from California. In this way, they bring exceptional strains for lovers of automatic genetics, which combine quality, potency and yield.
This team of breeders from Los Angeles has spent years selecting and crossing the most promising cannabis plants of the region, in partnership with a multitude of other breeders and friends from California.
It was in 2010 when their aim for sharing their hybrids materialised mainly focusing on the European market, where many American strains are not available due to the distance between continents. They settled in Spain, specifically in Catalonia, partially because laws are more permissive in Spain than in their native California.
Thus, this seed bank has a very pondered and studied point of view of the sector, and thanks to their love for marijuana, they allow us to experiment with different, unique strains with the aim to meet the demands and needs of the most enthusiast and curious growers of the cannabis scene while revitalizing the market of automatic varieties.
High quality automatic cannabis genetics
If we take a look at their catalog, we’ll soon notice that their strains are really different from what Europeans are used to grow, with cannabinoid contents around 20% THC and 1% CBD. The buds of their plants are big and dense, completely covered with resin glands, making us wonder whether what we see are automatic or photoperiod plants.
One of the aspects that they especially care for is the visual appearance, which is excellent thanks to the inclusion of genetics that provide really attractive colours to their hybrids. From the most pleasing lilacs and pinks to greens, reds and almost black tones, growing their strains is a true delight.
One of their most outstanding varieties is Crystal Meth (perhaps in tribute to the series Breaking Bad? ), which ends its cycle in just 8 -9 weeks after seed germination and combines Mexican, Early Skunk, TrainWreck and Hawaii genes, crossed then with a Canadian Rudelaris. If planted directly in the ground, it reaches up to 120cm in height and yields around 300gr (10 ounces) per plant.
This plant is easy to grow, productive and very strong, inducing a cheerful and inspiring effect typical of tropical sativas, perfect for lovers of easy plants and intense psychoactive effects. The taste is sweet-sour, with fruity undertones reminiscent of walnuts and almonds. A delight for the palate.
On the other hand, the Fastberry marijuana also deserves a special mention in this article, which was created with the aim to offer the best possible auto-fem version of the legendary Blueberry. They have used a Blueberry plant – which has been kept in the USA for its unique aromatic and psychoactive Old School traits – and their Canadian Ruderalis parent.
Thus, Fastberry is a robust and compact plant with Indica structure, resistant to adverse weather conditions and then ideal for northern climates. Very easy to grow, it reaches 70-120 cm in height and yields 50-250gr (1.5-8 ounces) plant in only 9 weeks from seedling. Some plants develop wonderful purple and dark lilac colours, especially at the end of the flowering stage.
If what you like are exotic sativas, don’t miss the Mexican Airlines, a cocktail of genetics from Colombia and Mexicocrossed with their Canadian Ruderalis, whichbrings the magic of autoflowering. It reaches up to 120cm (4 feet) in height and needs 9 weeks to end its complete cycle, yielding up to 250gr (8 ounces) of sativa buds that induce a highly creative and funny effect. It develops long and thin leaves of light green colour, being suitable for all kinds of environments. We just have to control the humidity levels at the end of the flowering period, since its buds are compact and need good ventilation systems. Moreover, this psychedelic wonder is extremely fragrant and tasty, with sour and spicy notes reminiscent of ginger on a Skunk background.
Other FastBuds strains
Apart from what we’ve seen, FastBuds have other interesting hybrids worth mentioning. An example of this could be their automatic version of the Green Crack marijuana, a strain that stands out for its fruity flavours and intense, uplifting effect.
They also have the automatic version of the renowned Girl Scout Cookies, a hybrid between Durban Poison and OG Kush which has earned its fame in the USA due to its strong, relaxing effect, suitable to treat several conditions like mood disorders or pain relief.
Six Shooter is a hybrid between Haze, Northern Lights, Super Skunk, Brazil, Pakistan and Trainwreck, a unique genetic combination with sour and fruity flavour and physical effect.
On the other hand, BlackBerry brings the stimulant effect of Sativas in Indica shape, with purple and dark colours and buds hard like stones.
Finally, the West Coast OG stands out as a a high grade OG Kush phenotype that preserves all the spirit of this lineage.
Stay tuned, since FastBuds is here to stay as one of the major cannabis seed banks of automatic strains. They will continue working hard to develop excellent strains which they test in areas with adverse climate conditions – like Canada and the Scandinavian peninsula – thus ensuring robustness, durability and reliability, accompanied by stunning colors and waves of bright resin glands.
