  1. yes ive grown TH seeds hog 6 plants under hps and using co2 and ill tell you ive never experienced anything like it since my friends keep asking me for it it is not for the faint hearted i don’t care who you are or what your tolerance is that weed will sit you down properly for hours to say your smashed is a under statement ive sent numerous emails to TH seeds asking for it but they don’t do it anymore it not on their web site and that is the biggest shame on TH seeds because as i have said ive never been that stoned since what a shame to let it go unforgivable but it is what it is

  2. I am on my fifth grow with this strain for a reason, it is good! Some things to know about the strain. 1) It is pungent stinky skunky whoa, You have to use a carbon filter if growing indoors, even if it is legal in your area to keep neighbors at bay, 2) it has hermaphroditic tendencies on the lower limbs – I have grown this in FFHF and FFOF and combos of both along with making my own organic living soils, every time I get a few Naners or have a couple with balls that I remove without them returning, 3) It makes monster leaves you have to prune to increase light to your other budding sites – I mean these things were as big as my chest, 4) you cannot use a normal bud grinder to break these up as they are so sticky I had to resort to a cannabis only coffee grinder to do my work, just a few pulses and whoa momma the smell, good luck getting it off of your fingers, 5) Medicated city after you puff on this HOG, famous for cotton mouth, couch-lock, and the munchies, with all pain and stress removed, go get a snack! I will be growing this again and again.

  3. Never heard of it until yesterday and now this weed MUST remain within my possession at all times….i was just thinking to myself about how much I missed the Fire og I had a few days before.. Sugar queen and BlackBerry kush couldn’t help at all after the fire.. then HOG came round and has shown me the way….

  4. I’m growing hand of God. And is doing fairly well, but I’m having problems with mold. So I wanted to know if anyone else that’s growing hand of God is having a problem with mold and all my leaves are going from dark big leaves to yellow. And my clones are having the same problem. What am I doing wrong?
