70% Sativa / 30% Indica
Spain’s Blimburn Seeds is a relatively new company, founded by growers with fifteen years’ experience in the scene, and the breeders there believe that seeds are a better way to start new plants than working with a cutting from an old plant, as long as the seeds are of very high quality. They aim to produce highly stable strains that have psychoactive qualities. Their Guanabana strain is a particularly strong cerebral plant that comes from the powerful Amnesia Haze, crossed with a White Widow plant. Amnesia Haze encompasses Hawaiian, Asian and Jamaican traits and is known to give a very strong heady high – and its offspring is no different!
Despite being more sativa than indica, this strain is recommended for indoor growth, but it is also suitable for outdoor cultivation, and can be harvested in the Northern hemisphere in late September. The resulting buds are intensely compact and very resinous, and give off a very intense aroma. The breeders recommend, if growing indoors, that the plants be put to flower straight from germination, as this will avoid any problems with the plant growing too large for your compact space. In the flowering stage, the buds grow extremely quickly, so it is important to check the flowers on a regular basis, and ensure that the humidity in your grow room doesn’t reach beyond acceptable levels. If the humidity gets too high, rapidly growing buds can become susceptible to mold, and your gorgeous nugs will be slowly ruined from the inside. The good news is that Guanabana is highly resistant to botrytis, so you can worry less about that and more about sustaining the best conditions in which your ladies will flourish. Indoors, she’ll finish in about 50 days, which is great news for any grower looking for a consistent and fast finishing crop.
If Guanabana doesn’t look like a sativa dominant plant, she certainly smokes like it. The taste, which gives this strain its name, is very fruity with a sour tang; imagine a mix of strawberry and pineapple with a hint of apple and you’re just about there. When you’ve almost finished pondering over the flavors, your brain will feel the hit of the high, and you’ll be riddle with an infectious energy. Anyone who’s been lucky enough to smoke Amnesia Haze before will recognize the pulsating feel in the head and back that lingers pleasantly and leaves you feeling like you’ve just had an intense massage.
