Dr. Grinspoon is an heirloom sativa strain that was named after Dr. Lester Grinspoon, researcher, author and advocate of the cannabis plant. It is an extremely potent strain that produces 26% THC.
It is a tall, slender plant that grows to about a meter and a half tall, give or take 10 cm. As a pure sativa strain it takes a long while to develop its flowers and mature - about 100 days is the norm. Yields are very average with 350 gr/m2 being usual. It can be grown very successfully outdoors but only in warmer climate regions as its late harvest time means that, in northern latitudes, it won't be ready until the end of November. Unlike most other strains of cannabis that the reader might be familiar with Dr. Grinspoon does not produce recognisable buds but, rather, the flowers resemble a loose collection of beads dusted with resin along its stems.
It is a very fruity strain with the piercing aroma of lemon and sumac; its light smoke is a cocktail of tropical fruit aromas that leads in to a very strong, long-lasting high full of cerebral energy. Definitely not a night-time smoke unless you want to stay awake all night!

About Barney's Farm Seeds
It was the late 1980s and high atop the Himalayas, heavy snow hurling its way down from the skies, a small group of breeders began to cross-breed marijuana strains carefully selected from every corner of the Middle East and Asia. Bountiful harvests of sativa and indica hybrid cultivars kept the group's spirits up during a 3 year stint in the rural, desolate mountains. One member of this talented group would go on to create one of the most prominent cannabis seed production businesses in the world. That business is Barney's Farm and the man who started it all is Derry.
After his period of successful cultivation in Asia, Derry returned to Amsterdam in 1992 with his newly created cannabis seeds and took the helm at Barney's Coffee Shop. The popularity of his strains made Barney's the must- go-to place for interested parties worldwide.
The unique nature of the beginnings of a company like Barney's Farm only adds to its already vast popularity. The winner of countless awards and a never ending desire to produce 'new and exciting' strains of cannabis, it's no wonder that there is an international demand for Barney’s Farm creations.
