Louis Faced is based on a relatively unknown OG, the Louis XIII OG strain. It was popular between 2006 - 2012 but is less prevalent these days for some reason - it certainly wants nothing in terms of its quality. It has been crossed with the Face Off OG BX1 male to create Louis Faced.
The thin-stemmed, lanky tendencies of the Louis XIII OG has been tamed a little but this plant will require support/staking as the branches are still long and thin bearing dense, golf-ball sized buds which can snap branches. It is indica-dominant and grows into a medium to tall plant with very good yields. Flowering time is a typical, for OG strains, 67 - 72 days. The Louis has much less of the earthy Kush flavour substituting instead a marked lemon cleaner aroma/taste. This quality is present in this hybrid and if high-stakes is your game then get ready to play with Louis Faced.
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.
