Another incredible hybrid with roots in the Jack Herer breeding
program, this next-generation Sativa is one of Sensi’s more recent
creations. Upon release, Mother's Finest was an instant hit, winning
first place for Sativa at the 2002 Cannabis Cup just a few months later. Mother's Finest is more a Hazey offshoot of
the Herer line than a direct Jack-descendant. However, just like Jack
Flash, Mother's Finest is best understood as a purposeful fine-tuning
of Jack Herer’s multi-faceted gene pool.
Jack Herer sits right
on the cusp of the Sativa-Indica divide, Jack Flash is a Skunk-heavy
variant and our gorgeous Mother's Finest - with her sweet-sour flavour
rush and ecstatic cerebral high - represents the Haze-dominant side of
the family Naturally, the most Sativa-leaning examples of Mother's
Finest will require the full flowering time, though this is still a
considerably shorter period than comparable Haze hybrids. Less frequent
phenotypes with a stronger Indica influence can mature in eight weeks.
Mother's Finest gains height quickly when blooming, even in her more
Indica form, so growers with limited upward space should flower early.
Like other mostly-Sativa hybrids, this strain can be put into 12/12 as
rooted clones or small seedlings.
The divine sight and smell of
Mother's Finest in full flower will delight any lover of cannabis,
right up to the most dedicated Sativa worshiper. Her conical bud
formation takes shape early in flowering as profuse sprays of
long-haired calyxes sprint along the stem and branches to join up the
clusters at each internode. In later weeks, the spear-shaped colas
expand into impressive lime green stalactites of crystal-smothered bud.
As her pistils darken, the calyxes of Mother's Finest swell and harden,
maximising the surface area available for resin glands to multiply.
Some phenotypes display extra-vigorous production, forcing calyxes into
miniature peaks at the top and sides of large buds, giving the main
colas a wickedly horned look. Elements of musky, fruity skunk and
earthy Afghanica are clearly detectable beneath the sharp pine-Haze
aroma of Mother's Finest buds.
