In creating The Potion Archive Seeds used its very first hybrid marijuana strain from 2004, a cross of Malawi and a (1995 NL5 x Haze F2) fertilising it with pollen from a Do-Si-Dos. The African sativa hybrid mother is a true connoisseur strain with massive buds and an old fashioned metallic/cat piss stink and an unusual potency.
The Potion grows into a tall plant with above-average yields and a flowering time of just 70 days thanks to the influence of the Do-Si-Dos male. These are extremely vigorous during the growth phase providing large yields at maturity. The flavours bear little relation to the standard Dutch Haze hybrids with their sweet lemon character. The effect is potent and very uplifting unlike some of the Dutch ones which can leave some people feeling a bit shell-shocked. For those who adore sativa-hybrids this will be something that will be of great interest and may just become a new favourite strain.
The Potion - just what the doctor ordered.

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.
