It's about time we get this section of our community active! What do you think?
With a reputable source of seeds on your bucket list ticked, what strain do I buy? is the big question for most first-time growers.
Well, It's easy; we would love to hear your story while capturing details to help another grower fall in love with your favorite strain.
Pictures are a bonus, and we get to feature outstanding pictures on our product page.
