The Kashmir lines deserve a lot more attention then they get also. I have a lolab valley that is supposed to finish in under 7 weeks that I feel will make a incredible breeding tool.
“Donkey dick” being used as a descriptor since at least 1991 is so funny
I doubt a lot of historic cannabis publications and seed catalogs are in Google Books, but the ngram shows that it picked up in published usage pretty dramatically around 1984-85:
I’m more curious about what happened during the 1800s to cause Donkey Dick spikes. Hahah
So, I was looking at the references it found, and apparently the word donkey was interchangeable with donkey dick back then, since they had previously just called them asses?
Ah, a major improvement
Thanks for the info.
That’s a great looking Mexican sativa plant. The Mexican genetics have been slept on for far to long and most are gone or contaminated now a days
We called the flexible spouts used on gas cans “donkey dicks” when I was in the Army in the nineties. So that may account for a few of those mentions.
Also, I hit puberty around 84-85. Not saying thats definitely the cause of the spike, but it’s an option.
I remember this article! I’ve read it a few times. Thanks for sharing @Mithridate !
Here it is in more readable form: 80's Story of Nevil's The Seed Bank
A flyer from Hemp works I saved from a trip to the Dam in 95…
I wish I had the balls to send this in, back in the day! It was a lot scarier back then I guess.
One of the first brick and mortar seed banks near me!
I think this place is still going!
Thanks Joe, somehow I went right by it in the first post.
@HydroPower did a great job transcribing those articles and catalogues.
I have a few more unreadable catalogues I started to make full typed copies of, it’s a work in progress
This topic seems like a perfect place to drop this document, every bit of info from the 2 old sites (rcmc/udg) pertaining to strain information was gathered and added to this compilation
RCMC_strain_guide.pdf (3.6 MB)
P.S. Always looking for seeds related to anything from those days. Pm if ya got some around.
Loving the Two-Tone front man endorsements from Hemp Works, if it’s good enough for the Skatalites and Bad Manners, it would probably work for me!
Anyone ever check out the vintage cannabis thread at icmag?
