    Hey guys,

    I have only prepared the Sour Livers description, as the guys from the vault needed the info for their comparative grow out.

    But i'll work on the others in the next weeks.

    Also we have the F3 grow out of the GG4, creme de la chem and yeti artisanal projects underway, I just need to start documenting it :D


    Mephisto Genetics New Artisanal Strain: Sour Livers

    Strain name: Sour Livers

    Generation: F4

    Type: Auto - Feminised

    Genetic Heritage: 'The Livers' (cutting) x Sour Crack F4 Regular auto

    ............................................................................

    Project introduction and Overview:

    In January of 2015 we set about to create a bx project for our Artisanal collection. To improve the quality of our auto blues and to progress locking down more of the traits from our all time favourite strain into automatic form.

    The main project was to use our Auto Blues as the auto parent to back cross to our livers cut and work to auto again over at least 4 generations. (That is also due out soon as the pure Auto livers)

    At the same time we decided to make two other crosses for the fun of it, also crossing sour crack and chem city blues to the livers.

    Fast forward a little over two years,the work is complete and we're super stoked to launch something that has developed into an astonishingly nice automatic: Sour Livers.

    To those unfamiliar, 'The Livers' is an old school cutting that has been kept alive and spread mostly between growers in the North of England since at least the early 90's,
    the reason being simple it's incredible as both a commercial producer and as a high quality top shelf head-stash variety. Strains come and go over time, but there's definitely a reason cuttings from this era are still doing the rounds, the exodus cheese, Psychosis, Northern lights to name a few others.

    The only slight, if you can call it a downside, of the cutting is the intense level of aroma, and a very distint but delicious aroma that the variety cranks out.
    The catch 22 is that often it's impossible to sell any flowers in those areas that aren't this strain because it's all people want and love, but due to the aforementioned odor level it has been referred to as 'prison weed'- but have a good filter and no problemo.:)

    It definitely sets the bar for high quality dope.

    Mated to our Sour Crack we've blended two of our very favourite strains together, over each generation we selected for the 'livers' aroma and flower structure and the greasy sticky resin that is produced in abundance by the Sour Crack.

    Sour livers is positively loaded with terps, everytime you even get close you want to give the flowers a finger hug, and that aroma sticks on your fingers for hours after. Yes, people may look at you strangely perpetually smelling you fingers.

    She's a really unique strain, and is way up there in the top strains we have made. Definitely expect to see a few special sour livers based hybrids on the horizon too in 2017.


    Strain behaviour and structure:

    To cut to the chase the Sour Livers is not a monster large strain. Given her heritage she is far more inline with the Auto-SOG style of plant, But she is a compact bushy variety of top notch quality, and for her size she packs a lot of flowers into a small area.

    Give her a smooth ride in the seedling stage and it's plain sailing from there on out, she's not over fussy or finicky and once established will handle good levels of feed.

    She absolutely benefits from some leaf tucking to expose those lateral branches she pushes out from early on, and encourage them to grow upwards and you'll be in for a treat of a mini-multicola'd gal.

    It's also worth clearing out fluff on the internal and lower parts of the Sour Livers to ensure all energy gets diverted to the primo sites. A very small amount of work in those areas will result in the best possible results.

    Variation between phenotypes is minimal, even under hps which can make plants stretch more the end size difference is minimal.

    She does respond nicely to some gentle LST if you wish to, but really her natural bushiness makes it uneccesary for the most part.

    Sour livers is a quick strain with a low overall cycle time, she switches from seedling to flower very quickly and then full into bud mode very quickly.


    The flowers she produces are highly aromatic with an intoxicating scent, she really oozes terps and the resin on her fans sparkles.
    The flowers are compact with very nice density, and as a result the end product is properly a looker.

    We definitely recommend to ensure your odor control is fully working, as this is one of our smelliest strains. Don't chance it without.



    ............................................................................

    Strain figures and info in brief:

    Indica/Sativa: 80/20


    in good conditions she will deliver -

    Cycle time: 60-70 days

    Size: 45-65cm Height/Width 35-50cm

    Yield: 90-120g as a single plant grow


    Best method for overall high yield: 12 per 1.2x1.2 space in 12 liter pots under a 600w - 500-600g is easily achievable.

    Aroma and flavour: A Sweet/Sour/Fruity/Skunky combination that is very unique.

    Effect: A nice balance is possible depending on consumption. Sedative, happy but something you can toke all day long at a good rate. Over indulge and expect couchlock.

    Best grown: Indoor/Greenhouse

    Flower Density: 8.5/10

    Cannbinoids: TBA - Estimated over 20% total cannabinoids

    Medicinal qualities: Great for appetite stimulation, aches and pains, and insomnia.

    Some one say skunk??? @mephisto I can't wait. I need these. Like 4 days ago!!! Waiting patiently in this and the others! I'll take em early if you want to send them lol. But really. Thanks for dropping a few skunky strains. My personal fav smell and flavor. Now I really have no need to look elsewhere for a skunk strain. Maybe a dark plasma cross in the future? I hear that stuff is tits too. I can't wait!!!

    Hey guys,

    A litle long over due but here's the info for the NCH and Stilton that will be available soon!

    Mephisto Genetics New Artisanal Strain: Northern Cheese Haze

    Strain name: Northern Cheese Haze

    Generation: F4

    Type: Auto - Feminised

    Range: Mephisto Genetics Artisanal Collection

    Genetic Heritage: Exodus Cheese x Northern Lights #5/Haze F2 (cutting) x Fantasmo Express F4 Regular auto

    ............................................................................

    Project introduction and Overview:

    Back in 2008, long before Mephisto was born, we were adding to our seed collection like crazy and came across some very interesting freebies on the site Seedbay.
    These were made by a community member 'hazeseeker' and (before the exodus cheese was blowing up and being hyped) the genetics involved were the exodus cheese cut as the mother,
    and Northern Lights #5/haze from sensi seeds as the pollen donor. The resulting cross was aptly named 'Northern Cheese Haze', We stored away the actual seeds we'd first wanted to try in favour of immediately running the N.C.H beans.
    More information can be found here: https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=107231
    We ran them 12/12 from seed and were very impressed enough so to make F2's to tuck away for a rainy day in the future.

    Fast forward to 2012 when we began experimenting and growing out too many strains to list in mass to see what diamonds we might uncover, and the N.C.H was ran again.
    She was an absolute beast, really verging on the line between what's comfortable to run inside - She would run 13-14 weeks in flower, which indeed is longer than most people like to venture into.

    But the trade-off (as with a lot of sativa's) is that the yield was astronomical. Multiple Big long donkey dicks, with little to no training, but the indica side to her parentage ensured tight compact flowers, just on exceptionally long colas.

    We selected our favourite lady from these F2 plants to keep a cut to work with. She was also trialled outside, and being a sativa hybrid (similar to amnesia in this respect) they kick into flower noticeably later, by several weeks in comparison to the indica, and OG varieties being run at the same time.

    This actually meant whilst everything around it was battling the late summer/early autumn storms, the NCH was unphased, and again produced massive, tall plants packed of yield.

    We wanted to start exploring and adding more sativa based autos to the Mephisto Catalogue, and decided to pair our most sativa auto; Fantasmo Express to our favourite sativa leaning photoperiod: Northern Cheese Haze.

    And thus began the process to turn the NCH auto.

    Over the resulting generations of breeding we witnessed all sorts of phenotypes emerging, larger structures familiar to the Fantasmo and hazey elements but with looser flower structures.
    We shied away from utilsing those, in favour of more cheese-like compact but musky frosty buds. As with all Mephisto strains we prefer to breed for overall quality and then unique traits over outright size and yield: After all, who wants a plant rammed of flowers if the flowers aren't up to par?

    The outcome may not be the most hazey affair, but overall we're very satisfied with the resulting creation and delighted to introduce her as one of our new Artisanal collection strains for 2017 - find out more below.

    She's also already been put to use for breeding work in a future project involving a super sativa seed club relic from holland 'Old School Haze'.


    Strain behaviour and structure:

    Overall we'd classify the NCH as a medium sized strain, with potential to monster at a fast rate.

    Seedling growth is pretty rampant, and the NCH expresses fair sized internodal gaps and she doesn't put out much foliage meaning light penetrates through her well, which can result in a nice multi-branched plant without too much effort at all.

    There's a few phenotypes within the line, some bring about fatter shorter nugs, and others with more stretch but the end result is a very similar yield and they both have in common a very compact structure resulting in firm buds and a sublime end product.

    She doesn't afford too many trichomes on the fans but the flowers get quickly enveloped in a generous coating and the odor during growth is relatively low unless you set about touching and exploring a little too adventurously.

    The flowers build solidly but can also make some small compact foxtails; Just something to note :)

    When harvested though, even immediately if you get your nose in there you are welcomed by a beautifully spicey musky cheesey aroma.

    Our Northern Cheese Haze automatic, was tested by Canna at an expo earlier in 2017 and a random bag bud came in at 21.07% Cannabinoid content, and this was from a breeding reject with no special treatment or harvest preparations or even a ripeness check.
    So we think with a nice hand this variety could produce some very stellar results.

    The smoke is as you would expect, powerful. A blend of day-dreamy to couchlocking goodness and packed with unique flavours.

    If you want a solid strain to grow that ticks many a boxes, this has to be one to put on your grow-bucket list for 2017.

    ............................................................

    Strain figures and info in brief:

    Indica/Sativa: 50/50


    in good conditions she will deliver -

    Cycle time: 65-75 days

    Size: 60-90cm Height

    Mephisto Genetics New Limited Edition Strain: Stilton Special

    Strain name: Stilton Special

    Generation: F1 Hybrid

    Type: Auto - Feminised

    Range: Mephisto Genetics Limited Edition Collection

    Genetic Heritage: Sour Livers Artisanal x Northern Cheese Haze Artisanal

    Photo credits: Tang x3

    ............................................................................

    Project introduction and Overview:

    A brand new Limited Edition Artisanal to Artisanal hybrid of our two newest Artisnal strains Sour Livers and Northern Cheese Haze.

    For those unfamiliar with British Cheeses (the edible, not smoke-able types), Stilton is a stinky Blue cheese from the Midlands similar to Champagne in that only cheese produced in a small area can bare the name.
    it also is aged for a minimum of 9 weeks - which coincides well with the overall cycle time from sprout to harvest of the stilton strain.

    So for some years now we've dreamt and toyed with the idea of a Mephisto Blue Cheese variety - and here we are.

    The cheese element heralds from the cheese in the Northern Cheese Haze (exodus cheese x Northern Lights#5/Haze x Fantasmo Express) which has a mild but musky spicey cheese aroma,
    and the fruity blueberry sour dank flavours come from the Sour Livers (The livers cut x Sour Crack).

    This has shaped up to be an excellent imalgamation of both parents. The Sour Livers gets a little boost of yield from the NCH and the NCH gets a boost in fan frost from the Sour Livers.

    If you want to know what Mephisto gear is about, this is a great introduction.



    Strain behaviour and structure:

    Stilton grows well from the off, and develops into a stout but branchy specimine that leads to a fine yield.

    She's not too stretchy but also is sizeable enough with good growth, to train and shape to your liking.

    Flowers develop pretty fast and grow to a good size, it may to advised to clear out some undergrowth and if needs be a very gentle defoliation mid-way through the grow, although leaf tucking may suffice well enough.

    The end product is of top shelf quality and she doesn't lack in yield either.

    Give your garden, nose, and body a treat and be sure to indulge in a slice of Stilton this year, You won't regret it.




    ............................................................................
