    • Hi Dan,

      Thanks for your comment! We appreciate you chiming in and are happy to hear you enjoy the buzz this strain produces!

      Happy growing,

  1. I Am a new grower and The Moby Dick Strain is growing good and Looks good. I’m in the 7th week Vegetative stage and I’m Not sure when to start the flowering stage. It Seems like it needs to get bigger but i read it should have been Through the Vegetative and flowing Stage a total at of 10 weeks indoor. I cloned from the First moby dick plant i grew From a seed.

  2. Grew Moby Dick back in 2013/2014. It had an acrid lemony aroma and flavor that was overall pleasant enough. The appearance was satisfactory, a medium dark green with rust orange hairs and decent trichome coverage. Potency was above average and to the best of my recollection more cerebral than couch lock. As a grower it’s #1 most outstanding trait was the large ROCK HARD Colas and ease of trimming! Maybe it was the particular phenotype, but to this day one of the easiest and quickest to trim strains that I’ve ever grown…

  3. I have grown this strain with success. I love the strain. I am a devoted Indica person but the Moby is an exception. I believe it is for conasures. It will really mess up the weekend smokers.

    • ron, that would depend on how and in what climate or region you intend to grow in. I have always found that with proper grow methods and dail;y attention to any MJ plant; One can have a successful grow, despite the fact that some strains are harder to master than others. Good luck and Happy growing
