Hey OG. I’m a hobby breeder and I want to share my latest creation here with you all. Guava Hashplant x C99. I never imagined this would turn out as nice as it did so I’m very excited to share this.
Lets start with the Mom. The Guava Hashplant is one of the best if not the single best strain I’ve ever grown. There’s tons of amazing cannabis out there but this one just really vibed with me on a different level like two pieces of a puzzle fitting together perfectly in my brain. Very potent but functional and heady, easy to grow, not finnicky at all, good branching structure, frosty as can be with a mostly gas and pine profile. I originally test grew this strain for Bodhi but I didn’t take any clones so after testing I knew I had to have more of this in my life. So I bought another pack and popped half the pack. Out of the half pack I found 3 ladies and 2 of them were outstanding and very reminiscent of phenos I found during the test run. No intersex traits were found on any of the Guava Hashplant’s neither in testing nor afterwards in subsequent runs with her. I couldn’t decide which one to keep so I ended up keeping them both. I proceeded to grow primarily the 2 GuavaHP cuts for 2-3 years and while I loved them a ton it came time in my life where I needed some more variety in the garden so I made the decision it was time to let them go, but before letting them go I knew I had to pollinate them because they were very special. I decided to use PeakSeedsBC C99 F7.
The story goes that MikeJ(PeakSeedsBC) received his C99 seed stock from Frost Bros when they got out of the breeding game, who worked the original Bros Grimm release to F4. At the time I purchased the seeds MikeJ told me he had worked 3 generations onto the line himself. I had previously test grew this C99 for him. I grew out about 40-50 C99 ladies in 1 gallon pots over the course of a couple runs and learned that the strain was completely uniform/homozygous. All plants are the same with minor variances mostly only in height and nuances in smell. Growing this many out I got to know this strain quite well. Not a single banana or ballsack was found on any of the C99 either, she’s rock solid in that regard. Truly ripe at 56-63 days she smells of pineapple funk and spice with a potent but functional racy daytime git-r-dun type of high. Now being a non professional/hobby breeder who lacks experience in male selections I figured this strain is perfect to try for a pollen chuck. If all the females are the same and fire I figured so must be the males. So for the first time in my life I popped a pack or seeds and culled out all of the females for space constraint sake. I can’t remember if I used 2 or 3 males to be honest but I then culled out a couple males and used the shortest, least stretchy males of the bunch and mixed their pollen together upon collection and proceeded to pollinate everything I was about to let go and thus the Guava Hashplant x C99 was born.
Now for the best part. Pictures!
Here are the 2 Guava Hashplant moms I used. #1 on the left and #2 on the right. (I had to prop the #1 up a bit to get her at the same height as #2 for the picture).
no. 1 was shorter and slower growing than no. 2 by about 20-30% but I liked the high from this one a little better. It just hit the spot for me. She also had a godlike calyx to leaf ratio and hints of purple on her with addition of cold air.
no. 2 was faster growing and larger with a bit better yield. Louder and a stronger gassy diesel fuel profile. If I was a commercial grower I would have chosen only this cut. It checked all boxes and everyone who tried it loved it.

Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures of the males that I used nor did I flower them past the point of pollen collection so there is nothing to show in the way of the C99 males but I did find some old budshots of the female flowers. Quality herb no doubt. Have a peak.
