Island Girl is a new hybrid strain that seeks to put more emphasis on the sativa side. The mother is a complex hybrid, that took more than 10 years to develop, consisting of African, Dutch and Hawaiian sativas amongst other strains. The father was Archive's Do-Si-Dos.
Island Girl itself is a tall plant producing average harvests in 70 days of flowering. While the mother has what are virtually unique aromas these days, smelling nothing like Dutch Haze hybrids, it was felt essential in the current Kush 'n' Cookies dominated market of shorter flowering times to reduce this by the judicious crossing with Do-Si-Dos.
This poly-hybrid cannabis strain has a very different aroma and flavour profile compared with other Do-Si-Dos hybrids. Growers and smokers can expect to detect a musty, menthol character fused with incense and a cookie, floral Hawaiian quality that is truly dank. Older smokers may well recognise some of the flavours going on in this weed.

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.
