Grape Smuggler utilises a female Grape Ape, made famous during the Oakland "Purps" craze of a few years back, crossing it with the, by now, well-known Face Off OG BX1 male. Grape Smuggler assumes the best qualities of the Grape Ape adding the dank funk of the Face Off OG.
Grape Smuggler is an indica-dominant plant which is a medium producer taking about 60 days to flower. From the Grape Ape it gets its propensity to grow into a robust plant with strong, thick stems and plenty of side-branching. It sports wide inica-type fan leaves on the end of long petioles. Buds develop very dark purple colouration especially so when night-time temperatures fall and/or as a result of heavy flushing of nutrients in the last couple of weeks of flowering. That deliciously grape-y aroma and flavour carries over to this hybrid supplemented by the Face Off OG BX1 dankness.
About Archive Seeds
In an attempt to preserve original cannabis clones and seed-lines, ThaDocta founded Archive Seeds in the early 2000’s and distributed genetics to closed groups of talented breeders and growers.
A US Company, “The Archive” distributed Clones and seed selections all across the nation, from Southern California, to the North West, Hawaii, the South East, and in every corner of the country.
However, these genetics were only distributed to trusted friends that would uphold the tradition of genetic preservation through verifiable genetic material and strong relations.
ThaDocta charitably donated a large portion of his extensive genetic library of clone only strains to be used in original formation of Rare Dankness seeds (also available at Seedsman).
After over a decade of constant seed growing and clone only comparative analysis and exhaustive verification of authenticity, ThaDocta decided to finally make some of his breeding and rare genetics made available to growers across the planet by creating Archive Seeds.
The long and arduous road that cannabis has taken historically is something deeply entrenched in the attitude of Archive Seeds. The respect for those that came before during prohibition, and made this industry possible is a palpable feeling at the Archive Seedbank, who make many strides to protect and cherish that heritage.
One of the main goals at Archive Seeds is to prevent the corporatization of cannabis and protect the independent farmers. While many sacrifices have been made along the way by Archive, they will never sacrifice their ability to provide the best quality, authentic, heritage cannabis genetics and flowers to the experienced connoisseur, as well as the novice grower looking for the highest quality seeds for a first grow.
Archive Seeds are truly an old school group of breeders who produce their strains with the love and care that the original breeders of the prohibition era did with such dynamism.
