Older Packs & Older Regional Strains - How'd They Do?

Anyone have some older seeds in original packaging? Or is currently growing some older creations they would like to share? Also interested in hearing from folks in different regions that had or have a strain that’s been popular in your area for years. We have a few here in Maine that’s been around for 15-30 years… Burnham Red Eye ( which I have) , Black Alaskan (turns jet black in flower) , Billy Bud, Vermont Mountain Man… I’d love to hear the stories and see pics of these regional older plants that were loved and kept around to endure the test of time. Older plants that survived the test of time intrigue me. Along with older creations still in original packaging… I have a few true stories of plants from our area, and have some older packs I will share. Thanks everyone for your experiences and pics. !

Fellow Mainer here, up in “The County”. Have an older Pack of 3rd Dimension by Subcool. Hope you’re enjoying this brisk and semi-sudden change of weather. Do have a pleasant week, stay safe and, of course, be well.

These were acquired between 2001 and 2004
The SSH are the older of the 2
I have a couple other strains from the same time but they are no longer in the original packages.

Ive been hunting for Black Alaskan cut… I found one 2 year’s ago and it definitely has it in it but it’s for sure a hybrid… I recently picked up a another cut of Black Alaskan that’s supposedly verified but we will see. What has made it thru the test of time is that the buds and leaves get jet black. Not a huge producer of resin but just beautiful to look at… I remember it being great smoke … couch lock material… also recently grabbed these classics, the VA beach Afghani, and Vt. Mt. Man… Vermont Mountain Man is definitely an older earlier release of NL , possibly a NL hybrid that is outstanding…

My area had a couple heritage strains that seem to be long gone I’m still hunting them though

STL Creeper and Ozark Gold

I believe the Ozark Gold still exists as the Ozarks are much like northern california lots of trees and unmarked mountain roads but the STL Creeper is probably gone last saw it on seedbay around 2003

Someone on here was growing Ozark Gold but lost them to deer :deer: unfortunately

A little piece of a 1990 interview about it I found

I dont want to brag, but . . . Ozark gold, the marijuana we produce, is highly prized,'' said Doug Seneker, deputy sheriff of Lawrence County, Mo., about the drug grown in his area. ''Most prefer it to Colombian or Mexican because its not as harsh, fresher tasting.’’

Hey, another Mainer here too! Been kind of looking for Maine strains too, Burnham red eye was one I wanted I track down. I was given a bunch of Outdoor Burnham red eye bud that got seeded, but the buds molded in the jar, and none of the seeds sprouted :sweat:. Though they were likely crosses since the guy grew several strains in the same area.

Gotta love " creeper weed"

Peace out and stay safe
