I’m a bit of a sucker for things with smart names, so I’m considering asking Positronics to marry me. Not only is their company named for the positronic brains that gave robots consciousness in 1940s sci-fi stories by Isaac Asimov, this strain is also named after a small sheet of grey matter in the human brain – a double whammy of quiz show winning factoids. But there’s more the Claustrum than a fantastic name – the presence of Kali Mist, Super Silver Haze and the legendary Jack Herer in its gene pool should be more than enough to prove that, even to the most hardened of cynics. The breeders first crossed Super Silver Haze and Kali Mist, which was then brought up right and introduced to the great Jack Herer strain.
The resulting Claustrum plants are very vigorous in their growth style and aren’t shy about it. They’ll grow quite tall in the vegetative period, even without any additions from you. However, they do enjoy larger amounts of fertilizer and have good nutrient tolerance. While an indoor Claustrum plant can be kept to around 3 feet with a little training and chopping, outdoors is a whole other ball game. Left to grow on their own with plenty of light, these plants can reach up to 16 feet tall – which, to put a little perspective on it, is the same height as two and a half Kobe Bryant’s standing on each other’s shoulders. Such a massive plant can be a nightmare to deal with, but with a little support from staking and the extra strong stems that the wind will give them, your plants should stay strong and lively. You’ll also find that this extra effort is worthwhile when it rolls around to harvest time and you find yourself pulling 600 grams off each of these monsters; though you might want to call some backup for the trimming session.
You’ll notice just before harvest that Claustrum buds look a little different from what you’re used to. This is because, with the right conditions, this strain will exhibit foxtailing, where you find little ‘horns’ or turnouts on the bud, making it look somewhat spikey. This is not a problem, and in fact, it is a rare genetic trait that makes almost finished nugs look even more badass. Once said nugs are cured, you will enjoy a gorgeous taste of pine and eucalyptus and an aroma that is pure Haze. If you harvest at the right time, your smoke will also be quite psychedelic, so don’t be alarmed if your pipe turns blue and starts to melt in your hands.
