Spice is an Hawaiian hybrid cannabis strain that was bred from an indica and a sativa plants from Hawaii that were adapted over a number of years. It is a fine-looking plant with a sturdy structure, a thick stem and short, wide leaves and a dark green colour.
Spice is 75% indica although there will be the occasional sativa-dominant pheno-type. It is quite a short plant and one that is very hardy and forgiving. It was originally bred in 1987 and underwent some improvement in the early 1990s but since then it has been untouched. Indoors plants will take between 48 - 60 days to flower with yields being between 500 - 600 gr/m2. Outdoor/greenhouse plants will produce approximately 500 gr/plant and harvest will be in late September/early October in northern latitudes.
Spice is aptly named as it has a spicy, complex flavour. It is a good commercial choice as it has a good relationship between yield and flowering time and this is further enhanced by the quality of the finished product.

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.
