Flowering time: 60-67 days,
Yield: 400-600 grams/m2
Chronic is the plant to grow when yield and quality are top concerns. Mostly an Indica this plant can produce up to 600 grams per m2 while not compromising quality. Chro nic has a strong high with a heavy resin content. Smokers that know and grow choose this plant for both appearance and it's sweet scent. Winner of 3 place hydro division in the 1994 High Times Cannabis Cup, this is chronically the best rd choice for growers that are tired of loosing quality when gaining yield. Indica/Sativa bred with powerful effect and sweet smell in mind. Quality without compromise, serious flower power!
I've gro wn Chronic. I've heard several different ideas about the genetic origin. The first was NLxAfghanxNL. The second was NL x Big Bud x Afghan. I am personally more prone to believe the NLxAfghanxNL. Big Bud has a certain mildly sweet aroma and taste that I didn't notice at all in Chronic. I didn?t identify with any Big Bud characteristics other than a giant fucking yield. Chronic has a very slightly spicy scent with an overpowering stone. If you are looking for the best quality and yield combination I would recommend Original Misty from Homegrown Fantaseeds. Misty is a stabilized sister of white widow with a bigger harvest potential and a sweet taste. I've heard that all of the white widow hybrids are very unstable, but I saw almost zero variation between plant growth patterns in my experience with Misty. I got an even larger yield from this strain than from Chronic, but only a very little bit larger. It did however have a sweeter taste and an even more powerful stone than the Chronic. Flowering period for Misty was 8-9 weeks, and I harvested a little more than a 1/2 oz per SOG style planting. After 2 weeks rooting under flo's I veg for 2 weeks under MH and then flower for 8 weeks under HPS. - Stoned Silly
Chronic is a strain developed by Cerebral Seeds. After this company split up into Serious seeds & Sagarmatha Seeds, both parties kept the strain. Serious sells it under the Chronic name and Sagarmatha sells it under the name Slyder. Actually Sagarmatha ran into some problems with the germination rate of some of their Slyder seeds. They have stopped carrying it FOR NOW until they get a few new batches going. They assured me personally that the Slyder would return very soon. The origins of this classic Indica strain are " a Northern Lights crossed with an Afghani ". Very, Very Heavy/ sleepy buzz. Tons of resin, relatively fast maturing with dense bud structure. Very well suited for SOG application.
As for the Chronic, I'm extremely impressed. All the claims of high yield and potency seem to have been true; haven't got the total weight of my grow yet cause the MONSTER colas (two feet long x four inches thick) are still drying, but the first three plants (which weren?t the biggest) gave over 100 grams, which I consider a lot. The last three look like they'll weigh in even mo re. There is a bit of variance in the strain. I saw two d istinct phylotaxies/growth patterns indicative of the Sativa/Indica mix: thick, luscious buds on short plants, and thin, slightly fluffy buds on stretchy tall plants. Nevertheless the result was excellent. The high is half bo dy, half mental and will lock you to your couch for a long time. I?d give it a 7.5 or 8 out of 10. - KGB
All 10 started with germinated and sprouted. The seed gave up 7 females with 3 males. During veg these plants were similar in appearance but differed somewhat in growth rate under flouros. All of these plants had long leaf stems with leaf blades somewhere between an indica and sativa as far as width and color. The color was a darker green with a nice shine.
1 and 2- These two were practically identical in all aspects so what the heck. They grew like sativas. They were cut down around 10 weeks and could have gone on longer. All of the chronic were cut down in approximately 10 weeks. Some were probably ready a few days earlier though. Braided bud look with good size calyxes describe the bud structure. Buzz was good and yield was decent but both these plants were chopped because of the long flower time. These plants also had the city skyline look to the buds since they were trained so that the branches were just about all horizontal.
3- Got shaded bad and after a test smoke was chopped since it wasn't as good as the others. It could have been a decent plant but we'll never know.
4- This one here was the winner as far as yield goes but since they were all somewhat crowded it's hard to tell if its the real champ. This will be a nice plant to grow since it gro ws like a sativa. Sativas tend to tolerate more hard times than indicas. This plant placed well in the buzz department too, 2nd. Buds have the braided look with smaller calyxes than 1 and 2. They were fairly tight buds considering this plant was on the edge of the grow.
5 and 6- Yep these two were practically identical as well. Heck they even yielded the same. These were completely different in bud structure than all the others. They have small calyxes without the braided look; they are much more compact than the others are. Buzz place was a close 3rd for both of them.
8- Don't know how this one yielded since it was the buzz champ and got chopped during flowering like the hand was a ginzu. This buzz is nice and the yield won?t be too bad either. This was the prettiest plant of the bunch too. It had the braided look with smaller calyxes than 1 and 2 with a nice orange color for flowers as they withered. How this one does from clone is information that's highly anticipated because of the buzz. It was the first to show pre flowers prior to induction and what was left on the plant on the 58th day was ready for harvest so this one is definitely the earliest finisher.
Aroma: This had possibly the most pleasing smell for weed, ever smelled in these parts. The stuff smells like light perfume or garden flowers, very nice.
Buzz: The buzz from 8 is about the same for all of them except for potency. When the plant was chopped early it had a definite sativa feel to it and it was even reported that someone had visual distortions after smoking it when tired. Once the thing matured the buzz turned more into and indica type thing that could knock some folks down but really isn't couch lock at all, its just that the potency causes burn out when the buzz wears off. But mo stly the weed has the sativa edge. Since little was smo ked when the plant should have been harvested let's leave this until the final report from clone, it's better than average right now.
Taste: The taste was pleasant and tasted somewhat like it smelled. More on the final report since not much attention was paid to this characteristic.
Yield: Because these plants were flowered for 2 weeks under flouros before moving to Jr., and because they were somewhat crowded, and because they yielded as much or more than any other plant grown from seed in cc jr. - flick
