Think Fast Outdoor Grow + Med Smoke Report

Average User Rating:
  • I want to upgrade the quality of my reviews further, so i started a new more indepth template. Your might notice that i am a kind of a tough rater. 10/10 ratings rarely exist, as i feel there is almost always room for improvement. If I rate more than a few 10/10 ratings overall, you can expect this strain to be really topnotch. My ratings are based on a single plant, but will be updated to include updated review on multiple plants as grown. I am striving to make these medical based outdoor grow reports, to be the most indepth available. Some of my ratings from the medical side will often seem low. That is due to the severity of the 24/7 Chronic Pain and migrane headaches cause from an upper neck spinal chord injury. The best weed i have smoked so far only has a rating of 7/10.

    Outdoor Grow report:

    Mold Resistance 6/10 Right at the end of this plants life there was a bunch of minor mold spots. I found around 10 small specks on final trim total. Lost almost nothing. This plant suffered from main trunk rot, and though i was able to keep it in check thanks to some great advice i got about powdered sulfur. This is why this plant was rated lower for mold, the 10 small specs werent bad at all.

    Insect Resistance 7/10 Had some minimal rainbow leaf hopper troubles on the Think Fast . She got through the bug damage no problem. Once very early crystal formed no bug issues at all.

    Bud to leaf ratio 8/10 Really a decent bud to leaf ratio.

    Bud Density 9/10 These are some of the hardest outdoor nugs i have ever grown. If they were any denser if would be impossible to break up effectively with fingers.

    Tolerance to Nutrients NA/10 - I didnt make any mistakes throughout this plants life.

    Tolerance to Wind 7/10 Very thick rigid branches. A few points lost as the main stalk rot caused weakness at the main trunk.

    Tolerance to Cold 8/10 We got a stretch of below 10 degrees celsius for 3 days with one day hitting close to 0. Minimal stress showing on the Think Fast.

    Trichome Production 9/10 Extremely nice trichome production, and it was the first to produce solid crystal. Some of the best crystal i have even grown.

    Ease of Training 5/10 Very hardened thick stalks were a pain in the arse to LST. Tight nodes when small also made training a bit of a challenge. Coupled with the stalk rot training was super risky on this plant.

    Scent Strength 7/10 A slightly lower profile odour that is well suited for stealth grows. Smells reminiscent of pine, but with a unique side smell than i cannot seem to pin point. Smells really nice and potent in the jars.

    Overall Recommendation as an outdoor plant 7/10 - Though i have only grown a single plant of the Think Fast, i will certainly be running this strains again next season. The main stalk rot posed the biggest challenge, and next season as a precaution i will be constructing a mini tent to keep water offf the main trunk. Fairly minimal mold considering the buds density, and the smoke is extremely potent.

    Outdoor Average 6.6

    Medical Effect Report:

    Migrane Headaches 7/10 - This strain does help migranes, as it takes you so high that you are totally distracted from them.

    Muscle tension/spasms 7/10 -The think fast works pretty well for shutting down muscle spasms.

    Severe Chronic Pain 6/10 - A fair bit of pain reduction from this strain, mostly from a distraction point of view.

    Anxiety/Depression 8/10 - Extremely powerful up high, not to be taken lightly. I generally roll a joint and smoke myself usually slightly smaller than a cigarette. Not with the think fast, joints keep getting smaller and smaller, and i have yet to feel the need to smoke a whole joint. At half way done a joint the effect is very intense and no more is needed.

    High Duration 9/10 - I find the buzz to linger on forever on this strain. Easily still felt after 2.5hours, even 3 hours on a good half of a joint.

    Overall Medical Effect Rating 7.4/10

    Final Thoughts - DP has hammered out a winner on this strain. This is very, very potent herb and a nice piney smell and taste compliments its potency strength. An early october finish was nice timing. The main stalk rot(pythium?) was very concerning for an outdoor grow, but she held together until the end, and produced a very fine yield of some of the best herb i have ever grown. If you don't have a super humid rainy fall to deal with try out the Think Fast. I know i am impressed!

    I am super impressed with the crystal count on this plant!

    Dried Bud

    Main Trunk Rot(the white stuff is powdered Sulfur)

    I would like to personally thank @Waira for his very sound advice on using powdered sulfur to suck the moisture out of the stalk, and to halt the fungal growth. Thanks so much man!! Not sure this plant would have held together without you bud!

      For the frame size of the plant she did a fine job. Lost only a tiny bit of bud to mold, and I don't think the trunk rot affected the flowering too much. I am trying her again this summer for sure!!

    "Amazing strain overall!!"
    Overall this strain is fantastic. Not a perfect outdoor strain, but she did quite well despite the issue of main trunk rot. I will certainly grow again. This photo strain would be monstrous under lights. Grown SoG style I could see yields being off the charts...

    Great write up and review @912GreenSkell :clapper:

    It's a really nice variety of growers and styles of growing here on afn. Nice how you can go from looking at a solo cup challenge and have a grin from ear to ear in amazement. Then click on a review like yours and see a plant like this! I envy those who can grow outdoors.

    Again, great review!

    Jumping Jones GreenSkell, this is an impressive review and grow. I heard you give credit where it was due, so let me swing for a minute....lulz. I'm looking close at this and imagining all the work this must have taken. I bet there's people who would have NEVER even caught that main stalk problem because the'yd never crawl in there to inspect it. Well played man. Beautiful work. I need this kinda grow in my life ! I can't imagine all the buds and all the butter ! I'm gonna shoot ya a pm so I can end this small book of a comment.
    Great growing, great review :thanks:

      Hey thanks so much for the kind compliments my friend!!
      I find the most amount of work involved is under the canopy and bracing huge branches to cope with heavy wind and buckets of rain,

    WOW! Your beautifully written and organized review is so inspiring. I am planning my first outdoor grow this summer and I am now so stoked looking at your pictures. If I can get a plant half that size I will be happy. Thank you for that post, it helps me out tremendously!

    BTW, I had the same type of stalk rot happen to an established hollyhock when it got to tall (over 6 feet) and heavy with blooms. I cannot help but wonder if the weight of flowers creates tears in the base of the stalks, compromising the protective layer thus creating an environment for the rot to grow.

      I believe some strains are just more susceptible than others when it comes to boytris and pythium. The heavy blooms did indeed create stalk splitting and when moisture got into it created an environment for mold to flourish.

      Oh hey...I have written two different guides on growing monsters, one for photoperiod plants(on potpros), and one for Maximizing Autoflowers(here in the outdoor section). Good luck and don't hesitate to contact me!

    @trailanimal - stratospheric! :D Haha nice :)

    @Waira - It really is tremendous bud!! Staggering density. It may seem like I am lowballing some parts of the review, but stuff like density it would have to be absolutely rock hard bud to get a 10. Or a 10 scent strength would be the instant you open a jar with 2oz you could smell it from 10 feet away. I believe I am being fair, but also tough on ratings. When/if the day comes you see an 9.0 outdoor average rating, you can be sure its a ridiculous outdoor strain!!

    Thanks to both of you for the comments! Wish you guys were closer to help me smoke it all!
