Eagle Bill Regular has been created by crossing selected cannabis genetics including Pure Haze, Colombian, Thai and Jamaican among others to honour the "Father of Vapour" Eagle Bill Amato. This 70% sativa strain is vigorous in the vegetative growth stage but the stretch in flowering is not excessive so that it is quite manageable indoors. Super-cropping or Sea of Green techniques are very successful indoors; outdoors it is suited to warm, Mediterranean type climates.
Eagle Bill's flowering period is average at between eight and a half weeks to ten weeks (60 - 70 days) and the yield is certainly above average. An extra week to ten days really makes a difference in terms of final yield, quality and flavour which develops more intensity. Its sativa dominant heritage is exemplified by the large inter-nodal length of its budding sites but as it nears maturity these really fill out to form long, contiguous, fox-tail buds. The indica genetics result in the buds having a much greater density and weight than those from pure sativa plants.
The calyx to leaf ratio is such that manicuring is a relatively easy task. The taste is smooth with some spice in evidence and, true to the person after whom it is named, it makes a great choice for vapourising. The effect is uplifting without being overwhelmingly strong thus making it a nice, uplifting choice for daytime and is sufficiently energising allowing for both physical activity as well as thoughtful conversations to be enjoyed.
About Sensi Seeds
There is no other seed bank in the world that has been coveted with more awards than Sensi Seeds. From the Highlife Cup to the Cannabis Cup, Sensi have achieved unrivalled legendary status in the seed bank world.
In the early 1970’s, the founder of Sensi, Ben, opened a clothes shop in the Dutch city of Rotterdam where he sold homemade clothing. A few years earlier, at the age of seventeen, he smoked his first joint. But it wasn’t until he began making regular trips to Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan to purchase textiles that he became aware of the plant’s versatility. He learned about hemp fibre’s suitability as, among other things, a textile and was given cannabis and cannabis seeds by local farmers. Ben discovered that the cannabis plant had so much to offer in spite of it being prohibited and vilified in all corners of the world.
It became one of his passions to collect cannabis seeds from Central and South East Asia and the Asian subcontinent. Back home in the Netherlands, he started to cultivate these seeds in order to learn more about the growth process of this very special plant.
At the start of the 1980’s, the first examples of innovative, stabilised hybrids, such as Haze and Skunk, arrived in Europe from the United States. Ben was one of a mere three Dutch cultivators who were granted access to these hybrids, which are considered an important blueprint for the development of European hybrids.
At the end of the seventies, Ben found out that cannabis seeds did not fall under the cannabis prohibition; it was only the plant that was prohibited and not the seeds. As it was not illegal to sell seeds, Ben reasoned that the production process should not be illegal either. He started his seed company after a lawyer confirmed this insight and in 1985 the Sensi Seed Club, also known as the Sensi Connoisseurs’ Club, came into being. Ben took over a company called the Seed Bank in 1991 and the gene libraries were merged to create the Sensi Seed Bank as we know it today.
Sensi Seeds search for cannabis genetics has never ceased in the last 30 years. Their dedication towards genetic preservation has also never diminished. To this day, Sensi are true to their roots and are now, more than ever, aware that the future of cannabis genetic research lies in its past, in the genetics that started it all.
Sensi genetics offer not only the high yield and range of effects people search for, they actually represent a part of Cannabis’ history.
With a host of award winning strains, it would be unwise to overlook Sensi Seeds, available to buy at Seedsman now.
