Yet Another Sour-Crack Smoke Report!

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

3BOG, 4AM, Sour crack
SeedBank : mephisto
Strain: sour crack
Did it autoflower?: yes and it wasted no time doing so
Soil/hydro: roots organic soil
nutes: megacrop, sweet candy, bud explosion, calimagic calmag, cocowet wetting agent
Light (kind and schedule): @BigSm0 ’s autocobs, lit up 24/7
From seed to harvest: about 60 days give or take a few
Dry Yield: about an ounce per plant
High/Effect Duration: about 2-3 hours when smoked, longer in edibles


BAG APPEAL: it’s so so sticky, the density varied.. I got 2 different phenotypes one was very dense the other mostly dense. You can see the sparkle from the crystals and it’s gorgeous weed. One of the plants foxtailed a little and was harder to trim but still looks beautiful

THE GROWTH: this is where sour crack shines.. it just wants to be alive, eat and grow with minimal fuss and it wants to do it all fast and aggressively... no time wasted, showed sex early went into flower early and then it sped to the finish line so fast. I have never seen a plant go from start to finish this fast & despite some germination challenges no other mephisto strains have given me issue since the sour crack so it seems to be an isolated fluke. While I seem to end up with a lot of picky strains... I did not find the sour crack at all picky and it rewarded me with lush growth throughout with almost no complaints... I have quite a few other mephisto strains about to finish soon but I have a feeling the sour crack is going to be a permanent member of my little garden

THE SMELL: the smell is amazing!! Hard to describe but after a few weeks cure it’s definitely a combination of smells.. like sour candy with a hints of fuel, like grapey sour sweet tarts. It’s quite a stinker post cure too.. I had it in several bags that were also inside a smell proof bag (they’re never really smell proof) and it still stunk up the car on a road trip.. It ended up triple bagged and then put inside a leak proof airtight glassware container and as soon as you crack that lid the entire car all the way to the back seat Would have a whiff in like 2 seconds

THE SMOKE: I don’t find it harsh at all, tastes great, lovely aftertaste, sometimes you just want to smack your lips afterwards. It definitely benefits from some cure time in the jars but it tasted pretty good even before that (I was impatient lol). Tasted super strong in edibles I may water cure it next time.

THE HIGH: it’s definitely indica but it doesn’t really put me to sleep. Everyone’s different I suppose, my better half avoids smoking this strain in the morning before work but I find it to be pretty well balanced honestly. I’ve had some indica that make me comatose or stare off into space when over indulging but the sour crack hasn’t done that to me. It’s fantastic for ptsd, autism related anxiety as well as nerve damage (my reasons for using) but my better half primarily uses it for appetite nausea and migraines and it fits the bill just fine for those too, so if you have medical needs I think you will be quite happy with how the sour crack meets them.

———————————————————————

Overall I rate this strain 6 stars out of 5 (yes I can do that lol) based on 3 main pro’s. 1: ease of growth, I would recommend this strain to beginners for many reasons, the biggest of which is this and number 2: how quickly it finishes. The 3rd is The fact that you get quality along with ease of growth & speed.. and that makes this a winner for me. I will most definitely be ordering this strain again and will give anything crossed with it a higher consideration

Struggling to come up with any cons here & it’s hard to think of any, my germination rate could have been better but again seems like an isolated issue, every other mephisto seed I’ve germed from then until now has germed ok. The yield was a bit on the low side BUT, I had then in 3 gallon containers. In the future I would not put them in anything higher than a 2 gallon container because... the plants would end up the same size but I could squeeze more in for a true sea of green. If you’re going to run sour cracks I recommend a container on the smaller side, and more of them. If you’re new to mephisto this is a great strain to start with, it’s the first one I started and now after smoking about an ounce of it after a decent cure, I can’t wait to run it again. Stay tuned for future reviews, sweet n sour will be next

Didn’t grab too many pics but here’s a few I snatched up not too long before harvest and a shot of some wet buds

Fantastic smoke report, very thoughtful and detailed. Sounds similar to my first run with Sour Crack. And my buddies loved her so much. The only problem is that there is not enough to go around, after I kept my share! Great job!
