Hello to the Overgrow Community! As I’ve said a few times before, I’m honored to be here with you all!
This will be my very first grow diary here. I thought it would be fun to share the journey we are on to create a new strain that means the world to us which we plan to name Subcool. I’ve put a lot of thought iNto how I can contribute and continue on with Subs & everyone elses mission here to overgrow the planet, and I don’t believe in my heart that the continuation of this mission is with the old genetics. We like everyone else must evolve.
A little history - Most of you don’t know but while we were with Sub we had the honor of meeting several of his close friends as well as learned a TON about his history from Florida/Georgia times, to Oregon, then onto NorCal, until the house burned down, then down to us in Arizona where we had the honor of building Subcool’s The Dank, recreate Super Soil, and relaunch the company with Subcool as the face and we were the arms and legs per say. (We will come back to this later) To make a long story short (at least for this thread) the time I spent with Sub was like nothing you can ever imagine, full of so many “rock star” like memories! He was an amazing, unicorn of a man that I thank God everyday that I had the honor of spending everyday of the past half decade with… It was fucking insane!!
Though nerds… This is not what the story is about… Here we are going to document the journey of creating “Subcool” the strain. Look, I don’t want to kill you all with the details but “I do not want to continue with Space Dude”, for a couple of reasons. First, Jill has more of a right to continue on with “The Dude” then we do. Also, we weren’t there for the creation of the old strain during the TGA days so I don’t feel it’s right for us to go back and attempt to recreate or attempt to sell those strains. I think if it’s anyones right to create the old strains, it’s the ones that were there during those days. I’m cool with that drama.
So let’s talk about what it would take to truly create a strain called Subcool. It needs to be special. It needs to have story, and connections to Monty’s past. It needs to be connected to his friends. It must be Dank! It must have a connection to the old genetics but with an ability to evolve into a new world of nasty strains that wash, and dump insane rosin. It’s gotta be slightly fruity but since you guys will soon realize that I’m a new school cat, that it must now have a StillWill twist to it.
Enter “The Green Aveneger” by our very good friend, and continued mentor Soul from Brothers Grimm. Soul only created 1000 Green Avenger seeds which happen to still be on the market today via some of our friends across the pond so we grabbed some. I’ve chosen to dedicate myself to this strain no matter the outcome due to the story alone. Since I don’t believe in the previous breeders for Subcool post 2017 ability to follow good grower/breeder protocols, we chose to not use anything bred by them for our continued success, and wanted to find something created by Sub with the original genetics. GREEN AVENGER FITS THE BILL! Pre-2017 Vortex pack gifted to Soul, bred by Subcool, selected by Soul, then crossed back to Genius to make more regular seeds cus “FUCK FEMS” as a tribute for carrying on the lineage.
I think “Green Avenger” is a great place to start our journey so here a couple pics of the pack as it discretely landed to us, along with the cup a little under 24 hours in… Lets get DANKy!
This one is for you brother (BRIP Subcool)
