Bakerstreet Strain

High up in the mountains, right in between the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, are some of the most powerful Indicas that have ever existed – the Hindu Kush. Once word of their legendary potency spread, many breeders commissioned cannabis explorers to cross the seas and climb the mountains in order to obtain clippings of the landrace strains. Today, it has become a staple in dispensaries all over the world.

Sativa/Indica % Indoor Yield Outdoor Yield Flowering Period
0% / 100% 10 to 12 ounces per square meter 12 ounces or more per plant8 – 9 weeks indoors, early to mid-October outdoors.

One such breeder that took ahold of a variety is Tweed, a licensed producer of medical cannabis in Canada. It is not known if there were any enhancements done on the Hindu Kush genetics, but they did release a variety named Bakerstreet.

Fans of Sherlock Homes may recognize the name as the street where the fictional detective lived. Nevertheless, there is nothing mysterious about the strain at all. Apart from providing relaxation, it also offers a host of medical benefits.

    With 17% THC level, Bakerstreet has an above average potency. It sends users on a pronounced psychedelic high that begins almost immediately after the first toke. It quickly enhances the mood after ushering in a euphoric cerebral buzz. These effects, though, are not enough as to cause debilitating effects. In most cases, the feeling is more akin to that of enlightenment.

    It takes several minutes before the physical effects of Bakerstreet become evident. A tingling sensation from the temple ebbing down to the body announces its presence. As it spreads, users start to feel tensions leaving and muscles relaxing.

    The Indica properties of Bakerstreet does not cause extreme laziness or lethargy. However, it does make the limbs feel limp with heaviness. As users find themselves enveloped by gentle waves of calming and uplifting sensation, most people tend to feel drowsy.

    Despite being a pure Indica strain, the cerebral effects brought on by Bakerstreet is a pleasant bonus. In moderation, the exceptional qualities of the physical effects complement the mental high. However, used excessively, it is entirely possible that some people may experience crippling rapid thoughts.


    Bakerstreet has a fragrant, earthy aroma with woody undertones. To a certain degree, it is similar to sandalwood but a lot milder and sweeter.


    Just as delightful to the palate is the mixed taste of earth, sage, and herbs. At the first toke, a refreshing burst of pine washes over the mouth and leaves a sweet aftertaste with a hint of diesel.

    Adverse Reaction

    The most common adverse effects that come with marijuana use have to do with dehydration. Usually, it reddens the eyes and takes away moisture in the mouth. Thankfully, these are nothing serious. Although rare, Bakerstreet can also cause users to feel a little paranoid.


    Although Bakerstreet has low CBD values, its psychoactive compounds, as well as its other cannabinoids such as the terpene myrcene, are enough to soothe muscles and ease muscle tension. As such, it is attractive to those looking for relief from bodily aches and pain. Similarly, the strain can be used to appease redness and swelling of inflamed areas. The relaxing body buzz can also help calm the nerves of those diagnosed with anxiety.

    We don’t currently sell Bakerstreet seeds. Check out other indica dominant seeds in our marijuana seed shop.

    Bakerstreet can be a source of comfort for those going through depression and PTSD. Its psychoactive compounds induce a happy high that turns users into balls of happiness overflowing with positivity. Those without such mental afflictions may opt to use the strain to wipe out any accumulated stress and negativity.

    Bakerstreet is excellent as a natural sleep aid. That is because one of the terpenes, myrcene, causes drowsiness.

      Bakerstreet, through evolution, is accustomed to the harsh conditions of the Hindu Kush region. It is a sturdy and resilient plant that can withstand abrupt changes in the temperature. For that reason, it thrives well regardless if planted indoors or outdoors. Tweed, though, did not release its seeds to the public.

      Although theoretically, the Hindu Kush plant from other breeders is technically the same as Bakerstreet, the qualities may differ – unless it is a clone of the original possessed by the company.

      Flowering Time


      Grown inside the greenhouse, Bakerstreet has a flowering period of 8 to 9 weeks. It could be cut down by one week under expert care and the use of specialized indoor gardening equipment. Once ready, it should produce some 10 to 12 ounces of buds per square meter.


      If planted outdoors, the plant should transition to bloom phase by early October. Harvest is possible before the month ends with each plant producing up to 12 ounces of frosty buds.

        1. Third round with Clones and it’s amazing . The mother is producing 30 clones very two weeks from the top after 8 months from seed , I have done 3 Grows so far First one was form seed as was the second but the last one was all clones . I am also going to try to Mother a Clone to see what I get . Plants themselves are extremely tough and very easy to manipulate . My first time Super cropping I got 1.7 lbs from 4 legal Baker streets in 18 weeks from seed 2 Vipar Spectra 600 watts non Daisy type

        2. Hi there. My Bakerstreet plants are Very close to harvest, but I’m trying to cut them at the best time. What are the strains flowering Characteristics? Basically tje same as most Pistels mostly orange and mostly milky trichomes with 20-50% amber Trichomes?? I don’t want too much “Couch lock” but as it’s an indica maybe 20% amber trichomes would be better than 30-40????

          • Sorry; I have been away. Harvest now. I am sure you probably did but, with 30-50% amber trichomes, it is well into the harvest cycle. Peace

        3. good quality and yield but takes too long to start flowering and too long to finish budding.i won’t be growing this strain again,even though i have 3 baker street seeds left.

        4. Thanks for the info… Currently have 2 in my garden…. Plants are over 8 ft tall but seemed to be budding a little late…will send an update when done… And by the way, tweed did sell some seeds of this strain , thats where i got them ( through ocs)

        5. I have my Bakerstreets, they are defenantly resilient, but easily rootbound, give those girls big pots if your looking for a 100+ day grow

        6. Just bought seeds never heard of the strain store had only two types of seeds one high in CBD one high in thc the choice was simple, I’ve 20 years raising these types of lady’s looking forward to seeing how they perform $72 for 4 seeds #?&@)+*

        7. Bakerstreet is a very hardy and bug resillient plant,it can withstand Canada’s unpredictable weather,so this is why i choose bakerstreet and the buzz is so relaxing with a thc up to 26% i love to smoke it after work to make me forget the aches and pains of a hard days work i totally recommend this strain i just love it.

        8. Tweed has released it’s seeds to the public now. They can be purchased at the Ontario Cannabis Store online. OCS for short. The seeds are 60 dollars canadian for 4 seed. I’m growing them now. So far looks ok. Will post again after they are done in about 12 weeks.

          • Sativa is the marijuana strain that people seem to like smoking the most. This plant grows quite large, reaching up to 15 feet in some cases. Sativa dominant strains are higher in the THC cannabinoid.
            Cannabis Indica is a more solid strain in comparison to Sativa, but it does not have the height Sativa achieves. Indica strains generally grow between 3 to 6 feet tall (1 to 2 meters. It is a bushy plant with round healthy leaves, unlike Sativa.
            While Sativa takes some time to flower, Indica flowers much faster and can be influenced a lot easier by adjusting the light cycle to promote this phase The buds and flowers on an Indica plant will usually grow very close to each other and are stickier to the touch than Sativa plants.
