Dead Lights is a high-CBD, sativa-dominant strain bred by crossing Charlotte's Web (a special pheno. of Cannatonic) with Pennywise which is derived from a rare cutting of Harlequin. Unusually with the production of high-CBD hybrids both parents possess that quality themselves in this case resulting in Dead Lights having a CBD:THC ratio of approximately 1:1
Dead Lights is a medium to tall plant producing 3 phenotypes. The first produces tall, light green, dense spear-shaped colas; the second remains medium-sized with far less stretch while the third can produce beautifully-coloured flowers with shades of purple and magenta. It responds well to being topped quite early on in its life-cycle to produce multiple tops which can be trained and supported with a horizontal trellis arrangement (SCRoG). Indoor flowering takes around 56 - 60 days. Yields are said to be average.
The scent of Dead Lights is a mixture of fruit bowl and licorice while the taste is of Blackberry. With such a high level of CBD the effect is very clear-headed and relaxing without the anxiety that high THC sativa strains can induce. Therapeutically recommended for pain relief, arthritis, back and neck pain. The hit is fast and cerebral.

About Subcool Seeds/TGA Genetics
TGA Subcool Genetics began in 2001, when a small group of dedicated medical growers decided to start their own seedbank, after becoming tired of the corporate greed that had insidiously seeped its way into the cannabis industry.
Drifting away from the industry norm, TGA Subcool decided to use “open source breeding” as a method of collecting the very best strains. They gathered information and data from thousands of cultivators, both professional and novice.
TGA Subcool became recognised as an official seedbank in 2005 and, more than a decade later, have 37 completely original strains that are designed for specific conditions to help those in desperate need of medical assistance. Including those suffering from: Pain, Nausea, Tremors, Nerve Pain, Anxiety and even Social Disorders.
Over the past few years TGA Subcool have developed a great reputation within the medical community. One reason for this reputation is the dedicated group of legal growers that test all of their creations extensively before being released onto the market. TGA work with the customer unlike any other seedbank in the world.
TGA Subcool Seeds is known for high potency Sativa hybrids. For example, their Jack the Ripper strain has tested as high as 26% for total Cannabinoids. While TGA Subcool offer a large product line, each strain is unique and created with a specific purpose in mind.
In 2011, one of the strains listed on TGE Subcool’s library, Vortex, won 1st prize at the High Times California Medical Cup. It was awarded the best sativa on show, no doubt due to its 18.19% THC content.
TGA Subcool Seeds are also working with high CBD strains that lack flavour and resin in order to create their own, improved high-CBD hybrids. All of these phenomenal strains from TGA Subcool Genetics are available to buy at Seedsman now.
