Humboldt Dream is a slow starter. Its onset is a mellow euphoria that clears the mind. It removes distractions, sharpening the senses for thoughts to flow freely.

At the same time, it melts away worries, so users feel happier on the inside.

The deep relaxation kneads the body free from tightness and tension which complements the initial head high.

It allows users to move around flexibly while performing tasks. Eventually, it tapers into a soothing buzz that plants itself in the limbs.

In low dosages, Humboldt Dream helps enhance productivity. It allows users to work check off lists of things to do without feeling tired or overwhelmed.

Of course, this is not to say that growers may not cultivate the plant indoors. Rather, it will need to be subjected to some growing methods like pruning which will help circulate air among the lower nodes.

In this way, it can dry up faster, preventing root or bud rot and the development of either mold or mildew. One may also supplement this with an efficient ventilation system.

It is a good candidate for the Screen of Green method. The advanced growing technique manages its height, keeps it short, and provides support.

It creates multiple budding sites and ensure that light is not only maximized, but also distributed evenly.

To bring out its hints of almost-violet hues, growers must expose the plant to a colder night schedule.

Usually, one will only need to lower the temperature by 4 to 10 degrees from that of the daytime.

  1. I grew some of these last season and I decided to make almost my entire harvest this year Humboldt dreams. I wanted to see how resilient they were and had noticed a random plant leaning onto it, completely covered in white powdery mildew. I left it leaning against my plant for weeks and my plant didn’t care or respond to the mold. It’s like it wasn’t even there. They reached just above the top of the garage in height coming in at about 13ft and I was able to pull 5lbs from that single plant. The smell and buds were beyond sticky and smelly. Had my whole yard smelling like berries. I made sure that I kept them outside for the first couple frosts. As frost doesn’t hurt the plant as long as the frost isn’t left on the plant long enough to cause cellular damage. So a morning frost that is gone by the warm sun before 9am is good for causing the plant to tighten it’s buds and pushes the cannabinoids stored in the plant into the buds. It’s dangerous but worth it if done properly. These are by far my most favorite strain as the yeild is so large and potent as well as it’s resilience to pests and molds. I was concerned I may have had mites so I purchased lady bugs and released them. Within a few days all the lady bugs were dead. The plants had killed them. No grasshoppers nothing. I had a burner cookie get leaf miners and still nothing on the Humboldt’s. I did however right at harvest I noticed one single bud had bud rot. I snipped it from the plant and continued harvest. I lost nothing

  2. I have a clone that I got late. It’s not the biggest but what I’m seeing looks nice. Would buy seeds if you had them.

  3. Wish I had the sunshine that you have in OK Mine only grew 8 ft tall in Maine, but I started this strain late.Was impressed at how fast they grew Putting out 4 footers this year instead of seedlings.Don’t think I will beat 16 feet but I am going to try

  4. Hello my uncle and I grow commercial. We partner with vapen who recently set up shop in OK a few miles from us and buy all of our trim. We got a total of close to 500 pounds dry flower and 300 of trim all of the trim go to vapen. We grew humbolt dream and they grew 16 feet and averaged about 4 pounds a plant. It’s possible to over achieve standards. I’m just wondering if it’s normal or did we do the impossible??

  5. I found some of this strain at a local dispensary and it is great. cant wait to see how growing it turns out I have grown the blueberry headband and it was fantastic so this should be good too.
