Since its introduction in 2004, this Austrian based Hanfshop has given cultivators worldwide a showcase of perfect strains suited for any individual style, space or taste.

Cannapot carries a wide selection of both well-known and lesser-known breeders. From autoflowers to regular seeds and feminized, this bank is full of reputable breeders like Barney’s Farm, Sensi Seeds, Ape Origins and Karma Seeds – but those are just a mere handful of the cornucopia of illustrious names.

This one-stop cannabis seed shop features amazing choices in CBD selections as well. Top names like Super CBDX and CBD Crew are only two of the many prestigious names cultivating CBD solutions booming with cannabidiol for medicinal uses.

In addition, an auction system is offered in this cannabis virtual space – “MyCannapot” gives you further access to “true gems, rare hemp strains and cheap dope seeds”. This iron in the joint fire gives cultivators a chance to run rare strains at crazily appealing price points.

Cannapot gives growers the opportunity to embrace the art of cannabis cultivation by hand-selecting its partners. I was linked with Kannabia, a Spanish sister bank, for the grow in this particular review.

Cookies Haze, Big Bull and Gelato-K photoperiods that ooooh’d and aaaah’d in veg through flower. Whether Sativa dominant, a Haze, a Kush, or a nearly pure Indica, all three of these plants delivered tantalizing massive buds coated with gooey, sugary resin.

Their aromas independently were fierce and fervid, but the aromas together were nothing short of extraordinary. Their rapid development was ostensibly effortless. I was so very eager to walk into the grow room each and every day, multiple times a day, just to catch one more glimpse of the magic that was transpiring within the tent.

Cookies Haze, is a Sativa dominant strain whose lineage lies in Afghan x Super Silver Haze. A “grower’s delight”, this strain hit on all the seed specifications noted by the breeder. Said to be high yielding, quick finishing, and capable of producing dense and resinous nugs, this Haze mix did not disappoint.

With a whopping THC percentage of 23.3%, this is an intensely euphoric yet grounded mental high that added to my creative flow. I found it to be a perfect accompaniment with my morning cup of Joe as it was delightfully well balanced, keeping me focused all morning.

A thin leafed and slenderly tall frame made up the foundation for the trichome-laden, cone-shaped buds she produced. Cookies Haze has rich, sweet and fruity notes yet finishes off with a citrusy, earthy dank, courtesy of its Super Silver Haze parent.

Her buds finished expeditiously as the Kannabia specs said she would, at just around eight weeks of flower – two weeks sooner than both the Big Bull and Gelato-K strains. With remarkable aromas and texture along with a color palette glistening with trichomes, it made these nuggets sparkle under an absent moonlight.

Gelato-K is a 70% Sativa dominant, utterly delectable mix of Gelato x Bubba Kush. Its 18.6% THC level is on the higher end of the spectrum but could be misleading in terms of the distinctive “rocketship” effect she was both said to, and does, deliver. She balanced the idiosyncratic traits of each parent that resulted in a truly tantalizing citrus and earthy smoke.

Her violet trichome covered buds shimmered like frost on grass in the early morning sun. In some photos after harvest, her buds nearly appeared white if taken at certain angles.

In development, she was always a tall plant with strong limbs and took 10 weeks to come to fruition. Her Bubba Kush parent provided me the uniquely calming effect that I crave in an Indica, and the reddish hints seen in this strain shone through on her daughter’s colas.

Kannabia’s Gelato-K buds were beyond lush, some of the biggest buds I have ever seen, most definitely the largest out of all my prior grows. I would contend the only place breeder specifications didn’t match up was that this strain was said to have a medium-sized harvest. My assumption would be that under optimum conditions, this strain has absolute potential for massive yields.

Big Bull won itself “Best Indica Seed” at the 2012 Treat Yourself Expo in Canada. Kannabia specs doted on her ability to provide both meditative and relaxing effects.

Being a lover of all things Indica, I had to try this well known strain that, for whatever reason, I had never heard of. Blending Black Domina x Early Pearl x Skunk, this squat Indica has allowed me to be quite present and introspective. A tool that has proved helpful in practicing mindfulness – a trait I search for during seed selection.

It is a calming energy, as much of an oxymoron as that may sound. A nearly pure Indica, she has a THC percentage of 16% and is downright perfect for everyday activities and socialization, (perhaps even a trip grocery shopping, if you loathe doing that as much as I do).

An alluring varietal, her overwhelmingly fragrant, reddish-purple striped buds sat underneath layers of gooey resin. She hits with quite a woodsy taste but the Black Domina parent cools down that spice with a mouth-watering florally sweetness.

Her massive buds sat on thick, stalky branches. Come flower, the girth in her branches allowed her to spread and carry the extreme weight of her luscious developing buds. Taking up nearly the entire front of the 4×4 with Sativa dominant Gelato-K and Cookies Haze, holding up the rear of the tent.

Kannabia noted this plant as a large yielding and intense aroma grow. It was said to finish fast and with gumption. My particular Big Bull was a Big Bull indeed, running nearly 11 weeks of flower to come to fruition but I enjoyed her so much, I immediately ran two more on one of my current grows. It would be remiss not to mention that great things take time and she most certainly was great.
