Earlier this year I decided to have a go at a new project of growing my own.Having no idea about what was required,I popped his seed and instantly regreted it.Not because of any fault of the seed but because it was mid march and the weather was pants.Having no room inside I was left with no option other than out into my tiny greenhouse.I left it out there and at some points the temps dropped as low as 2degrees.YES 2 DEGREES!Expecting it to die or at best go hermie,as the weather improved it went from strength to strength.When it decided to flower(mid June)I waited with baited breath.A word of caution on this,this strain does smell quite strong so if its stealth your after beware.(My neighbour commented that some lowlife was growing weed!)After what seemed an eternity,it was finally ready.When smoked it was a good daytime smoke.Quite social and beautiful aroma.Although not the biggest yield I would surely grow it again it's well worth it!

wow, what a surprise this was. I grew Taiga over autumn 2012, It coped very well with high loft temperatures at the end of summer and it also coped well with cooler temperatures later. One word of caution, this really does stink. It is up there with White Widow in terms of penetrating aroma. In the same grow I also had Think Different and by comparison Think Different has a really mild smell until the last stages.
Taiga yielded well. It was ready to chop down at 9 weeks but I let it go to 10 weeks for extra couchlock. It is a really smooth high, no initial paranoia at all. Maybe it has high CBD? But it was a strong smoke that lasts all night, very pleasant yet not at all weak. Smoke too much and you will want to lay down and sleep! The aroma and taste are complicated. Quite unlike other stuff I have smoked, it is a pleasant taste yet seems to have its own unique earthy flavours without the usual spicy, pine flavours I often get.
it is really resinous and sticky. Very easy to grow and I would say easy for a beginner too. For me this is just as good as any traditional variety I have grown, just as strong. Yes, I am impressed with this one.

Taiga is classic mid 90's style weed. High spirited sociable and full of giggles.
The taste is spicy, fizzy and classically skunky. An absolute pleasure to smoke with solid buds and lovely purple blushes to the buds.
High is strong and very much a fun party high. I find it makes my mouth numb too!
The FX wear off into a deep sleepy feeling after about 3 hours.
