Golo Line from Philosopher Seeds was born from a collaboration with the breeding team Reggae Seeds, with the intention to offer sweet and fruity flavours in our catalogue. We started developing our strains by mid 2010, when our first hybrids were offered to our testers and to everyone through our Test Line.
The other main aim of this collaboration was including strains which could produce an offspring of plants rich in CBD in our catalogue, CBD ratios that can be close to ½ in certain varieties such as Super Juani, that achieved a spectacular result of 5.7%THC and 9.4%CBD in gas chromatography made by Canna during the Spannabis fair.
By including this CBD line in our catalogue we also have more possibilities to offer the extraordinary therapeutic properties of these strains to all our friends and clients, so they can find their preferred medicinal strain. We are also thinking about those recreational users that are increasingly demanding more CBD strains for their more relaxing and less THC typical psychoactive effect.
We used 3 different males for this breeding project: Jack the Ripper, Juanita la Lagrimosa and Tropimango; we pollinated 15 strains from our gene pool, searching specific features in every cross. Finally, after multiple tests and discussions between our breeders, testers and comments on our Test Line, we decided to offer you the following strains:
Strains developed with Jack the Ripper genetics:
Jack el Frutero: A cross between Respect#13 and Jack the Ripper, the most Sativa plant of our catalogue and one of the best resin yielders. A true delight for the palate, it offers fruity tones, either fresh or dry.
Sugar Pop: To create this variety we also used the Jack the Ripper male, this time crossed with RK#14, a hybrid between a Kalijah male from Reggae Seeds and a fast-flowering White Russian. Like her sister Jack el Frutero, she inherited an insane amount of resin, although in this case it produces a much more relaxing effect.
Strains developed with Tropimango genetics:
Sweet Love: We are very proud of this strain. To create it, we crossed our Tropimango male with the renowned Juanita la Lagrimosa, getting an offspring that keeps the fruity and citric tones of Juanita, but in a more compact and strong structure. A top yielder.
Naranchup: Is the result of crossing our Tropimango male with Naran J (Morning Glory x NYCD). A very easy to grow plant that offers excellent results, very stable and suitable for SOG setups.
Strains developed with Juanita la Lagrimosa genetics:
SuperJuani: We used Respect#15 (Juanita x Cannalope), a strain with an intense fruity flavour inherited from Juanita, backcrossed it again with Juanita in order to enforce this fruity taste and also increase the chances to get CBD individuals in the offspring. In the absence of tests that we are performing right now, we can guarantee that SuperJuani transmits CBD to 75% of its offspring, making it a perfect strain for medicinal users.
Guayita: Reggae Seeds’ breeding team decided to cross the Guayaba cut – a present from an American friend which has intense earthy flavours – with Juanita la Lagrimosa with the aim to get a sweeter offspring. The result is a variety that maintains these earthy tones, but in a sweeter, smoother and tastier fashion.
