Edelweiss cannabis strain (literally 'noble white') was named after the famous white flower which grows in the high Alps.
Though the bulky Indica buds and the delicate white blooms of the mountain flower may not look similar at first glance, they share qualities such as the star shaped leaflets around the flower-tops and the thick white coating on those leaves. Naturally, in the case of the cannabis strain, this is coating is sticky resin that also frosts the buds.
For a brief period, Edelweiss ganja could be found growing in all across Switzerland, in much greater abundance than its namesake. Those tolerant days are sadly over, but Edelweiss ganja lives on as an indoor, feminised strain.
About Flying Dutchmen
It is an impressive transition when you realise that The Flying Dutchmen started with one man, 40 years ago, conducting some cannabis research for personal satisfaction.
Eddie, the founder of The Flying Dutchmen may have had humble beginnings but that all changed by 1984, when he opened a wholesale genetics business, cultivating new hybrids for the market with fellow breeder Skunkman.
Together, Eddie and Skunkman introduced the very first Skunk#1 (available to buy at Seedsman) to the market along with a host of other new strains.
In order to find unique parental stock, tens of thousands of each strain were grown out in greenhouses, the best were selected and preserved. These best plants were inbred until the strain was considered stable or pure breeding. Crosses between two stable varieties are known as F1 hybrids.
You can buy Flying Dutchmen Seeds at Seedman with confidence, and enjoy some of the classic strains that Eddie and Skunkman created over 30 years ago.
