NHS is a hybrid strain that was bred by crossing NL#5 x Haze with Skunk, hence the name NHS which coincidentally is also an abbreviation for the UK's National Health Service. Not surprisingly this strain is claimed to be beneficial therapeutically.
NHS brings together the three strains which made the cannabis world take notice of the pioneer breeder Neville Schoenmakers. The inclusion of 25% Haze in this hybrid ensures that this plant is a practical sativa, one which doesn't take forever to finish flowering. Flowering times indoors can range between 56 - 70 days depending on the pheno-type and yields should be at least 500 gr/m2 under 600 watt lights. It can be used in any growing system whether SoG, SCRoG or simply allowed to grow in a large container. Outdoors plants will be ready to harvest during October in the northern hemisphere with large harvests in good conditions. Some growers report beautiful pink pistils with their NHS plants.
NHS is a classic hybrid strain that has been around for almost three decades and which is predicted to be around for a lot longer due to its undoubted quality.

About Mr Nice Seedbank
Howard Marks and Shantibaba, the men who created Mr Nice Seedbank, met during the late 1990's while living and working in Holland. In 1995, Shantibaba had set up the Greenhouse Seed Company. Coincidentally, at the same time, Howard was released from a lengthy imprisonment in the USA.
During the next few years, the two became very good friends and discussed the possibility of working together. They decided to start a seed company to help growers throughout the world.
In 1998, Shantibaba sold his interest in the Greenhouse Seed Company and, as a sole trader, set up Mr Nice Seedbank, which has always been and remains a Dutch company. He established Mr Nice Seedbank, with its forty parent plants, to make strains and seeds available to all levels of growers in order to help them spread the genetic diversity of cannabis.
Rather than joining any seed companies' bandwagon by merely chasing money, Mr Nice Seedbanks dedicated their efforts to make old and new world seeds available for growers. They did not care how many seeds they sold or whether they had a profile in the limelight.
In 1999, Dutch law changed and no longer permitted the production of seeds. However, selling seeds imported from another country remained legal. Mr Nice wanted to fulfil their project without breaking any country's laws. Accordingly, they moved growing operations to Switzerland, where the law permits growing cannabis for seed production. Many Dutch seed companies lost plants, mother rooms, and seed crops, but in Switzerland, Mr Nice seed production blossomed.
Mr Nice Seedbank has consistently maintained a visible presence on various helpdesks, directly interacting, testing, and researching with the growers of its products. Their aim is to help people, wherever they are, who have worked or intend to work with any of their product.
