For the thousandth time: WHAT STRAIN TO BUY? Solved

by OldFart about July 11, 2018 - report

I'll soon start my next grow and I wonder if I should stay with Aurora or try something else?  Part of me says to perfect an Aurora grow, I know it's foibles.  Part of me wants a new adventure.  I want a strain with similar medical traits.  I haven't even tried the Aurora yet, it's still curing.

    My recommendation would be to pry open a jar and try your Aurora, cured or not. Then you can better access what you like and what works medically for you. Otherwise it's simply someone else's opinion.

      TEN? Holy crap! How much can you consume? How many friends and family do you have or are you commercial grower?

    Auroa is my foverite too. I believe it is better than GSC. I am running on GSC clones but will buy Auroa when it goes on sale. I stick with strains that flower in 8 weeks or less. For what ever reason ther are no seeds on sale this week.

      I originally bought Aurora because it was on sale and I liked the properties.

      I think the sale may be replaced by the free autos with purchase

      And how the hell should I know without consuming such? Aurora has a set of properties. I would buy something with similar leeast on paper. You might say after using Aurora and a bunch of others that you recommend "XYZZY". But...  more

    I agree with Ronp, You should sample some of your cured product!

    as a cultivator, thats part of the process!

    besides, its a good excuse!

      I will suggest Northern Lights because it is an easy to grow strain. Very manageable. Bullet proof and resistant to pests and adverse conditions. Love the big fat Indica leaf too

    You know you are the only one who can answer this question, but i will try and help you by saying you should try the Girl Scout Cookies strain, I just flipped mine to 12/12 today because they are trying to outgrow the space they are in at only 5.5 weeks into veg. A few of them are 22 inches tall and very wide. If you are looking for a new adventure then try the girl scout cookies and hold on my friend. Peace

    I'm a Papaya fan too. My only AI grow was grow #1 so I don't count it for pain comparison. I find the heavy indicas pretty similar in pain control. IMO, take any Nirvana Indica dominant hybrid and make hash for better pain control than buds.

    Strains , Strains, and more strains !!! ALWAYS try at least one new strain with each grow . You have had several comments from growers that know!! Blue D. ,GSC , Hazes , Maui W. , I will add to the list ,White W. , Bruce B. , Chernobyl , Hashberry is really endless . Some old school stuff can be very good too, Humboldt Select , Mantanuska T. , Hash Plant , Blueberry . It's  almost to the point that you put 10 strain names in a hat and pull one out ! Good Growin
