Lot's of modern genetics moved away from the pure sativa structure. The market focuses mostly around indica and indica dom hybrids for a number of reasons. Resulting in farmers (mostly far northern california) only growing what people want.
I am sharing my first hand experience from living and growing in the emerald triangle. The farmers here grow what people buy and honestly people would skip over a sativa dom. due to bag appeal. They look great in my opinion although, tend to be lighter and stringy like buds. People like solid, dense buds for the most part.The thing with landrace sativas isn't that there's no market for them because there sure is. It's just that as far as I know, they're pretty painful to grow requiring much more time and effort for lesser yields compared to something that was bred for high potency, short flowering and great yields. Even the aesthetics matter quite a bit when dealing with dispensaries, saw some documentary about the California medical scene where they were checking the nuggets thoroughly with a microscope as to whether to take them in for sale or not. With landrace genetics you most likely won't get the prettiest looking buds so I would imagine it's a pain to get a dispensary to accept such a product, especially if one were to ask for a higher price than what's paid for the bestsellers (to even make it worthwhile for the grower). It's a pity I would say, but that's the world we live in right now.
2lbs+ / plant. You can make pretty good trees with her. Im running some of DJ Shorts Azure Haze. Supposed to be related to BDH's parental line. My friend and I have run bdh for at least 6 years now.I like the chill antidepressant effect blue dreams gives someone. Its very nice and smells like incense after its burnt IMHO sometimes. Depends on the harvest I guess.
Anybody else had Cotton Candy? it's a stimulating strain thats delightfully cerebral, but it's supposedly an indica-dominant which surprises me.
