Specially selected genetics from the famous Dutch Passion Research Gene Bank were selected by renowned cannabis guru, Jorges Cervantes, to create Jorge’s Diamonds #1. This sweet and potent strain produces bud as sparkly as the name suggests: a real jewel in this breeder´s crown.
Heritage & Genetics: Jorges Cervantes has had a cannabis career spanning 25 years, in which he has authored multiple books on the plant and how to grow it. He’s literally written the (Indoor Grower´s) bible on it! So you would expect only an exceptional strain would bear the name of someone so knowledgeable. You´d be right. Jorges Diamonds´exact parentage remains a closely guarded secret, (though some suggest there is Afghani in there somewhere). She is definitely mainly indica (80/20), with just enough sativa to provide a soaring head-high. Winner of the 1st prize at the 2013 Highlife Cannabis Cup, Jorge’s Diamonds still boasts a reputation as one of Dutch Passion´s most popular indica hybrids.
Flavor & Aroma: The scent from Jorge’s Diamonds is soft, dreamy and shouldn’t be too overwhelming, which is a boon if you´re growing indoors. She´s immensely fruity, both in aroma and in flavor; you will get a mouthful or raspberry and honey. A particularly sweet strain: totally delicious!
Effect: Tingly and relaxed, with a very strong head-high; especially notable considering she’s largely indica. The powerful indica effects may make you sleepy after a time, especially if taken in large amounts; so she is very much an evening strain. If you do fall asleep after Jorge’s Diamonds you should sleep sweet and deep though, and the effects are known to be very long-lasting.
Medical: Ongoing research has found that in higher doses THC may help with Glaucoma, by reducing pressure in the eye. THC and CBD have also been found to have pain-relieving qualities that are thought to amplify when the cannabinoids work together. Meanwhile, CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Considering this, this high THC, moderate CBD strain may be somewhat useful for relieving pain and inflammation often experienced with joint pain, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
Grow Characteristics: Growing Jorge’s Diamonds is a piece of cake. Bred to be almost maintenance free, she is good at resisting pests and molds. Best indoors, if you´re in Europe, she will also grow well outdoors in warm southern hemisphere climates and seems to prefer soil over hydro. Talked to nicely she should give a large yield of dense, resinous buds that are sparkly as… well yeah, diamonds.
