In the middle of the US genetics fever, we would like to present once again Original Amnesia by Silent Seeds, a variety which has always been on the Amsterdam Coffee shops' menus. It is one of the genetics that has shaped the cannabis world especially that of breeding, as it is a reference in every possible aspect one could wish for in a cannabis plant.
It is a variety developed by Dinafem, and currently marketed by the Silent Seeds seedbank. Both have been working together for 20 years and keep the genetics on the basis of original clones.
Original Amnesia cultivation
One of the points that lead to the perpetuity of this genetics is its easy, fast and for almost all members of the family. It has an impressive growth thanks to the vigour of both the central and secondary branches. It is a plant that quickly acquires a good size and ramification.
Original Amnesia has a medium internodal spacing, shorter than most Sativas. The vigorous secondary ramification develops a large number of branches that easily fill with buds of the same quality or even higher than those of the central one.
It produces large and elongated flowers like the best Sativa, where the Indica genetics add to the hardness. The huge flowers are rock hard and covered with a huge amount of white resin.
Another remarkable feature is its great resistance to fungi, mould and pests, a great attribute when producing such large, dense flowers.
Original Amnesia is a plant easy to cultivate indoors. It does not require a large amount of nutrients, and adapts to all kinds of growing techniques. The SOG method produces a huge amount of large central buds in a short vegetative period. On the other hand, the SCROG technique, with a reduced number of specimens and increased growth period, quickly fills the entire cultivation space thanks to the extension of its secondary ramification. Under optimal growing conditions, yields of up to 600g per m2 can be obtained in as little as 65 days from turning to flowering.
Outdoors, Original Amnesia shows its full potential. Exposure to sunlight increases the vigour especially of the secondary ramification, developing colas of buds that have nothing to envy to the size and density of the central flower. Outdoor cultivation certainly increases yield and size, taking on a shrub-like shape and offering a yield of up to 1200g per plant with the harvest ready in mid/late October.
Original Amnesia, flavours and effects
Original Amnesia offers an intense and particular flavour, with a strong Haze tendency. Citric aromas are combined with incense cedar and spicy notes, making for a highly enjoyable experience.
Original Amnesia produces a very potent effect. It was unrivalled for a long time and was one of the strongest strains on the market at the time. As such, it has lost none of its potency, with a cerebral and euphoric high that can give you a good kick when you least expect it.
