But when this lucky cross began taking home cups at local medical competitions, Odie’s in-house genetics became in-demand amongst those in the know. Eventually, Odie folded his Oregon Diesel into heritage favorites of the Pacific Northwest, like Trainwreck—resulting in Tardis —and these delicacies were distributed by third-party wholesalers and retailers.
Before Odie Diesel created Oregon Diesel through a happenstance pollination of NYC Diesel by a hermaphroditic Blackberry , the patriarch of multi-generational, father-and-sons medical grow and breeding operation Homegrown Natural Wonders made seeds only sometimes and mostly to keep his garden going.

From the sleek digital branding to the data-driven breeding program, Compound Genetics represents the now-est vision of consumer-available cannabis genetics that we can imagine. Breeders can finally look under the hood to see what makes our chronic tick thanks to improved lab access, and by doing so, a whole new world of experiences and flavors awaits.
Crosses like the Rogue Blue Cheese and Jager OG are created once a year in full sun, as has been Massive’s tradition for decades. The resulting seed lines are an excellent choice for the backyard enthusiast grower, offering a pedigree of full-flavor cultivars bred to resist local pests, as well as survive the inevitable tests of foul weather, while still rivaling the bag appeal of indoor.
Growing cannabis is a lot of fun, and if you wish to break free and try your hand at cultivation, a number of breeders are doing the work to make world-class genetics available in seed form through Oregon’s dispensaries.
Exotic aromatics like Compound’s Purple Apricot —a delicious citrus treat—have been making their way to Oregon dispensaries in flower form over the last year, and from what we’ve seen, we’d be proud to run Compound’s gear in our tents.
In addition, you could also keep an eye on the trichomes on your plants. Also known as the frosting on the plant, these small crystal-like blobs will turn a milky white color.
OG Kush is an excellent example of the medical marijuana seed sold at an Oregon seed bank. This stress-relieving sativa offers a piney aroma and relaxed high. Many medical cannabis proponents tout OG Kush as an aid for depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Bred with some west coast strains, OG Kush provides 19 to 26 percent THC and maybe the right sort of medicine for what ails you. This herb is best left to experienced growers who desire a harvest in roughly 56 days.

AK-47 are some of the most popular feminized seeds at Oregon seed banks. This sativa-dominant strain derives from a lineage that includes Thai, Mexican, Columbian and Afghani cannabis strains. Uplifting and energetic, the buzz from AK-47 is long lasting and creativity-inducing.
Seeds do age over time, so seeds that break are typically ones that are old and way past their prime time. However, immature seeds will have a light green or white color to them. Young seeds aren’t likely to germinate, but if they do, they’ll take longer than other healthy seeds.
The appearance of the seeds you receive will tell you a lot about the quality of the product that you purchased.
