Wow!! Thank you for the lead! I just messaged him now so hopefully I will get some feedback and even more importantly, those long sought after pine flavored budsStarted an account just so I could post on this thread lol. Try Hazeman's Pine Tar Kush, a LOT of people are saying this is XMAS bud, super cheap so worth a look. Hope it's the same thing you're looking for. Instagram him @infinitygenetics
I've actually posted a similar thread in about 5 different cannabis forums trying to seek out the christmas buds origin, and there has been a few mentions of Tom Hill's pine tar kush. I've looked all over to find beans or a lucky clone but no success so if they have them available, I definitely will be picking some up. I really miss those pine flavored strains of the 90's....Glad I could help keep me updated! He's a good breeder so no matter what you'll get something decent I'm sure. Plus he has a good selection otherwise. Story goes it's from an old pack he got already opened with Pine Tar Kush written on it. Which is an old Tom Hill strain, but it could have very well been mislabeled. Good luck!
I looked into the story behind the Pine Tar Kush, as well as Hazeman and that seems to be the story from other forums, and that Hazeman is the one who has the original Christmas Bud strain... PTK... well lets say that I reached out to him and I excitedly will be testing out some PTK very soon. Thank you so much for the lead on Christmas bud... I literally have been looking for this for years and now have that opportunity to have it Thank you BTW follow my journal and you will see them in action in the near futureGlad I could help keep me updated!

Thanks Weaselcracker!Let us know how it goes, Icemud (!!).
Imagine the glory - bringing back the beloved Christmas bud.
Imagine the zombie-like hordes of Christmas bud addicts stalking you if you do...
I'm about to pop a couple seeds someone kindly sent me last year - acquired from their father that he labelled 'Christmas bud'. A long shot but worth a try. What you've got going on sounds way more promising. Good
Dr. grinspoon isn't it. Screams haze, spicy smell and earthy taste. Most definitely not rage against the machine/ bone thugs blaring xmas bud! LolStarting to wonder if it had a long,,long flowering time.I tried everywhere to get Dr.Grinspoon,finally got a 5 seed pack in the original Barneys Farm package.Barneys Farm didn't even list it anymore.
My theory was the 100 plus days of flowering.With the changes in marijuana laws it seem more are going for shorter flowering times for their commercial aspect. They call Dr.Grinspoon an heirloom sativa strain.We may lose a lot of old strains to commercialism.
I had a college friend that came from Ann Arbor and she always talked about a strain that they got that was gold/brown in color and was absolutely amazing. I can't remember what she used to call it but she said the same thing that it was golden brown/blonde and was that stuff everyone wanted....This sounds a lot like the stuff a relative used to grow in the UP of Michigan. Tasted and smelled just like a pine tree and left you with a happy perma grin buzz that lasted for hours with just a hit or two. Best buzz ever! But this was always gold and blonde in color, no green so unfortunately I don't think it's the same My relative no longer grows and I have never found anything like that since the mid 90s. Hence my stumbling upon this site in search of that long lost golden glow. Guess I'll just have to see if he had a name for it the next time I'm up there. If I get any info, I'll be sure to share. Good luck.
I started a journal to highlight the journey in which you are welcome to join along for the ride :Hey no problem! Congrats on the testers! I haven't popped any Hazeman gear yet but I have a bunch and hear nothing but good things.
I have another lead for you in case you're interested, CSI Humboldt aka Pirates of the Emerald Triangle (@csi_humboldt on instagram) has '79 xmas bud crosses right now. I know they released the pure IBL at one point, not sure if they were anything more than testers though you might be able to grab some if you talk to them a bit. A couple of the crosses sound good, from what I've seen so far they have: durban poison, trainwreck, purple urkle, triangle kush, irene kush, girl scout cookies, chem 91, black death, mendo purple, big sur holyweed.
So how are the little ones doing?? I have some CSI gear going right now, chem d x humboldt snow aka dirty snow They're stinking real good I just did my first top on them at the 5th node. I can say they're super hardy after what they went through as seedlings LOL

Icemud's 2018 Journal: Pine Tar Kush pheno hunt and more...
...Also, yesterday I came across another potential "Christmas Tree Bud" strain, called Mighty Mite, which was popular around the same times. Its a short indica which a pine flavor and also carries the ruderalis trait of autoflower (sometimes). I will have to do more research on this but also worth looking into.
I am popping some Santa Sativa right now. Maybe not the true xmas bud I have been looking for.
But it does sound pretty close. I will let you know how it goes...
Dinafem - Santa Sativa: A high performer on every level
Santa Sativa by Dinafem is a very potent fast finishing sativa strain, that has become a firm favorite among lovers of Haze. This predominantly Sativa superstar shines brightly, brandishing dense resinous buds with a heavenly scent. To create this exceptional specimen, Dinafem crossed a Haze#1 and a (Skunk x Northern Lights). Resulting in a premium pot hybrid, bound to impress Sativa devotees and cannabis connoisseurs alike.
Capable of being grown indoors and out, Santa Sativa stretches to monstrous heights. Under an experienced hand, she will explode, soaring to a astronomical 4.5 meters tall! Comparable in many ways to the ever-popular Moby Dick, as she share its skyscraper-esque physique. If you're looking for a strain that is adaptable as well as powerful, then look no further than Santa Sativa.
An absolute beast in every way, shape and form, Santa Sativa brings a real sack-load of bud - arriving before Christmas (yay!). Outdoor growers can expect to be harvesting from late October/early November - but how much? Well, grown under optimal conditions she is capable of producing an incredible 1300g (per plant) of high quality cannabis. Indoor growers needn't feel left out, for once she has completed her 70-80 day flowering period, expect to be bestowed with a yield totaling around 500g/m².
Flaunting a pungent (but pleasant smell), Santa Sativa fills the room with a delightful mix of lemon, cedar, incense and pine. This authentic cocktail of flavors and aromas help to enhance the strain's long-lasting cerebral buzz to no end. Once you've inhale her smooth smoke, Santa Sativa delivers you a mind-blowing present - one that has bouts of euphoria, ecstasy and clarity. Rich in THC goodness (16-20%), she ensures users experience a high of insurmountable delight. The perfect marijuana strain to share among friends.
Yea I'm running the Hazeman Pine Tar Kush Aka 79' Xmas Bud.Oh interesting that's similar but slightly different to the story I heard haha. Are you testing for Hazeman now? I have been told his Deep Chunk aka Monkey Balls is not the original Tom Hill's Deep Chunk. Gonna watch your journal for these!
