don't know how accurate this is but I recently found out that Cheese 'GENETICS' originated in the UK, although it is called on here UK Cheese, I'd only seen it for sale by Greenhouse seeds - but apparently they bought the genetics from UK growers.
 
Glad to hear your thai's are surviving the weather- would love to see a pic and of EP's as my ES are no where near done....October 1st is never going to be a harvest date , more like Nov 1st I reckon!
 
......where is that Indian summer?!?!?

Hello CP, long time no post for me. Bank Holiday was good thank you, as far as I remember...
 
Cheese: http://forum.sensiseeds.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=4468&PN=1 (courtesy of Bartmanuk - I hope you don't mind BM. Was actually looking for anoother thread of finished cheese from either Nemo or Solid, can't remember. Couldn't find it anyway, but it's around.)
 
I don't know anything about where it originated, but UK Cheese is a strain which has become famous over here as a one that is only available as a cutting. A few years ago someone told me that it was incredibly hard to come by, and that you had to be lucky enough to be considered friend by one of the priviliged few (I think it's alot more prevalent now). I think the same person told me it came about through cross-polination by people surrounding the underground dance music scene in the early 90's. Whether that is true or not I have no idea. My knowledge of strains/original strains or whatever is close to zero at the mo.
 
It certainly has become alot more prevalent in the last year or so I reckon, suddenly alot of people are talking about it.
 
It is a lush smoke though. Very pungent, sweet velvety smoke, a real lung-filler (bit of a hash-smokers' one in that respect I reckon). And knock-out stone. I've only had it a few times, and am patiently waiting for the day when I'll have the means to go indoors.
 
The "Strawberry Cheese" I am not so sure about. It may have been some kind of cross or I may have been bullsh*tted. It was cheesy, but not like I remember. It also didn't look like it was flowered as far as it should have been. It was still lovely though. People of this forum talk about flowering this strain for 80+ days I think! That is a very very long time for a mainly indica/indica plant AFAIK. With my very limited knowledge, I'd say that must go some way towards explaining the strength that the strain can display.
 
weed%20leaf The Thais are good, still surviving amazingly, despite the weather. I have been pulling buds off probably every three days for the last two weeks, every time I spot the tinyest bit of mould. One still has its top bud, and both still have over 70% of their bud still on the plants. I reckon the weather is looking a little more promising again for another week or so, so I'm still holding out that I can squeeze more out of them. The smoke is already good, and ramping up in strength every new bit I try. Citrusy sweet, very nice. Although I could see myself getting sick of it if it was all I had! Photos- There will be some, one day, I promise. Will stick an update on my thread re: the Early Pearls, and cuttings etc later tonight.
 
Hope you're keeping well, CP.
 
See you around,

I hope you enjoyed my thread CP, hopefully it didn't read like a sequence of panic moments and stupid questions!
 
It makes me smile to hear of all your experience with proper hashes! I guess I'll never really get properly acquainted with the real deal unless I actually go to these places (or the 'dam, maybe, but even then I often don't feel convinced of what I am buying)!
 
Cheers for the words of encouragent, I will stick some pics on the thread in the next few days at last, so you can see what the "Thai" look like.Wink
 
I am particularly familiar with purse-defyingly expensive tonight, having just paid through the nose for a bit of strawberry cheese (strawberry??...) which is essentially straight from crop. It is, however, absolutely lush. Best smoke I've seen for an awful long while. It'll be hard not to tear through it while it's wet as there's nothing clean about at all. Sprayed, brixed rubbish everywhere. Greedy, greedy uncaring barstewards. I continue to pray for good weather, and as you say CP, it looks like it might finally be on the way.

Good day Figment
 
I have read your thread re your garden. I hope all goes well with it. I take it your are in southern England? It looks like the sun will come your way soon.
 
Yes the blonde is magnificent. it was purse defieingly expensive but when growing up in the late 70's and eighties with Lebanese, blond,red & gold it made me weep just to feel the fluffy nature of it again.
 
Oh just to have again a bowl of Malana Cream from The Kulu Valley in India !!

Fasinating stuff, CP. Not knowing much about t'internet I'm too scared to go looking for info beyond this forum so it's great to hear from someone who's had experience of Thailand/Thai weed, and a little while back too! (Not too far mind Wink)
 
You say people's (mis)conceptions regarding the rain in Manc. I do remember some very nice weather, and I loved the place for exactly the same reasons you do, but I'm afraid it was a bit of a dark and cold chapter in my life for other reasons, so I suppose my recollections of the weather up there may be tinted by the grey which inhabited my soul at the time. Melancholy indeed. I'm happy to say life is so very much better since.
:-)
 
The seeds came from three or four different batches of weed, which came wrapped in string, and tasted of "Thai", in the sense that that is the flavour I was once told was Thai. Interestingly, one of the batches was completely brown, and quite different to smoke to the others, much harsher and coughier, and much less tasty. The others were very sweet, but quite aged, and had of course suffered the effects of being dragged accross the globe. I'd say that the nicer ones did have a good strength, and an effect quite different to that which I would get from the usual commercial; a sativa effect, I guess. They all contained seeds though. None of this proves anything, obviously.
 
It's not that I'm desperate to believe that my plants are true Thai, it's just that I'd love to have some confirmation of what they are at all; any kind of indication as to lineage would be interesting. I have searched "Thai" to death on here, and need some new knowledge!!
 
So the Leb's still in your bowl, eh? Have one for me? In the name of original strains, or the quest thereof!
 
Take it easy buddy.joint

Hi Figment
 
Firstly I'm never offended by people's (mis) conception about the weather in Manchester. The way i look at it is that i can go walking in the Pennines and go clubbing,eating,shopping in a vibrant friendly city.
 
On to Thai - funny you should mention string. My man gave me a bit of green the other day. It had a distinctive taste not too dissimilar from what i have tasted in Thailand. There was a lot of blue cotton in it - to hold the bit together. I am no expert when it comes to what's imported into the UK these days. Gone of the days when it was Colombian or African or from Jamaica. It seems that labels are just that. " Yeah man it's Thai Stick - Yeah man it's a Nepalese Temple Ball !!!"
 
I assume that Sensi do sell Thai stock and would be very confident that it is. But if i was given a seed and told it was Thai? emmmmm doubtful. As i said most commercial green in Thailand was shipped from Laos and Cambodia with only a smidge from Khon Kaen ( in the North East of Thailand ) where the famous sticks originate from. I mean the first toot i had in the late eighties in Bangkok blew my head off. It was green and i mean green with no seeds and a beautiful tasteweed%20leaf- but on the Islands - especially near the Cambodian border, it was regular brownish biscuits of grass - large heads, loads of seeds. Earthy flavour that when damp made you cough like a bastard. I have seen grass very much like it in the UK but from where it comes on - well only the importer will know that.
 
The question will always remain that why would anyone risk importing bales of weed from a country with such draconian laws when it comes to drugs.
 
As far as your final question is concerned. Only you can answer that one Figment. From where did you seed come from?
 
I am no expert on grass but one thing i am good at is that the Blonde Leb in my bowl is the real deal

Evening CP, hope you enjoyed your tomatoes.

I also hope I didn't offend you by referring only to Manchester for its rain! I have to say that I very much enjoyed my year there, and was most of the time unfazed by its precipitation. I consider myself to be very English when it comes to the weather, and don't really care if the sun shines or not, at least not traditionally! Although the weather is taking on a lot more significance for me of late... They do keep saying it's going to change, and the prediction is now for this weekend to be the turning point. Fingers crossed... weed%20leaf

Re the Thais. Interesting what you say about scoring real Thai in its country of origin (or not, as the case may be!). My only experience of it is of buying weed which has been described to me as such here in the UK. Most "Thai" that I have smoked has a certain distinct flavour to me, which if I tasted again I would suggest to be the "flavour of Thai weed", but it could mean anything really. On top of that, what colour is green, if you know what I mean?! Plus I'm guessing that the string/thread doesn't mean it's any one particular strain either.

Out of interest CP, do you have any idea why they do the string? Did your Thai in Thailand come in string? And on the subject, is it the case that any weed wrapped in string now gets referred to as Thai somewhere down the food chain, to make it more saleable to people like me?! I can only conclude, in my noobish way, that it is a geographical thing, and that the strains which are grown in that area are of similar/the same lineage, and that the string is a tradition/convention...?
 
Ganja said early on in my grow thread that he considered true Thai to be, in his opinion, "dictionary definition psychoactive sativa". He didn't say, however, how likely I am to have stumbled accross some real unhybridised seeds, of course! So the question remains, what am I actually growing?!

Manchester is my home city so I'm used to it. In fact I love the place
 
Yes live tommy plants - in fact i will be enjoying the fruits for my lunch today.
 
Can't see no let up in the weather for your Thais man althogh i did spend many a wet day in Thailand. Although most of the Ganja had been grown across in neighbouring Laos or cambodia.
 
Only once or twice did we actually score Thai (alledgedly)

I used to cycle everywhere in Manchester, which you may know is renowned for its rain, so I know what you're saying. Although you left out the grit and grime that gets right where you don't want it.
 
Mould- I guess it's quite possible, if the mould bore some kind of airbourne spores or whatever, or I guess it could possibly just transfer by touch? That's something I didn't think about the day I removed the mouldy patches from the Thais, better have a good long ponder over them tomorrow evening... I assume from what you say that it was on live tomato plant leaves so I guess it could equally find a home on other living plants...?
 
Re: Indoor-I must have got someone elses thread mixed up with yours, sorry CP, didn't realise you couldn't do indoor. Neither can I at the mo, hopefully I can change that soon!!
 
So as you say, roll on a rocking Autumn. And thanks for the good wishes! weed%20leaf

Hi Folks
 
It was a disaster year that's for sure. I cycled into work today and i got so wet i might as well have showered in my clothes.
 
Just an update. I cleared the greenhouse and noticed that my Tomatoes had a lot of mould on the lower leaves ( dosen't affect the fruits). I suspect that during the damp humid conditions this had transferred to my buds on my EG. I may be way of the mark but it did look suspiciously like the same mould.
 
I cannot grow indoors for various reasons and am now more clued up for next year- I mean we can't have 3 years of rainy summers?
 
Good luck to all outdoor growers in Northern Europe and lets hope that you do get an autumn that bears buds a plenty.

Me too figment. Even though my Girls gone everyone needs a bit of sun now and again.
 
Lets hope that we do get an Indian Summer - but having said that it was none too pleasant in Varanasi when I was there one summer !!
 
Good luck with your Thais man
