    Default Old fashioned weed

    on my worldly travels some of the best weed I smoked was in Thailand, its a personal thing I guess but I liked how I felt.
    where can one obtain bog standard old fashion weed seeds?

    my guess is you cant its been driven out by skunk strains.

    any ideas?

    If you grew indoors the seed of the land race weed you smoked it won't end up with anything like the chemotype of the land race parents.

    I made my first seeds in 1972 and have smoked proper Thai stick and Durban Poison and would love to be able to grow cannabis like these legendary originals but it can't be done because growing indoors is a poor approximation of the environment of the original parents. It's not just genetics involved in the shaping of the overall chemotype/resin profile as phenotype is the result of the genotype after it has been shaped by the environment in which it grew.

    It would be closer than any other strain. But might disappoint as Rockster said.

    if you can grow outdoors then you can just grow all three seeds near each other, hope there is one male, if there are two, pull the least desirable before pollination.

    if i breed a stock outside, and the same inside, i will get different pheno characteristics?

    interesting. so if you're an indoor grower should you look for seeds breed indoors? what if the strain has been breed indoors for 15 years? will that negatively effect it?

    Yes of course you will. The resultant phenotype is the genotype as shaped by that particular environment.

    But answer to your question: Take strain X and breed it indoors and outdoors and the resultant prodigy will be genetically identical. The genotype will be the same but when those seeds are grown out in any given environment phenotypical differences will occur as shaped by that environment.
