Duck foot strain

A few years ago in 1999 Cannabis Culture announced a different new strain of marijuana (CC#19, Grow Down Under), its very different looks and growth patter than what we are used, or we know as normal cannabis.

This new strain by Mr Ayers, as an outdoor grower in Australia. Mr Ayers said CC#19 need more potency, but the strain was extraordinarily hardy and frost-resistant, and unrecognizable as cannabis.

The structure is totally different than regular cannabis we knwo. There are no fan leaves, all leaves are quite small with an irregular distribution of stamens. The plant grows more like a shrub, without typical candelabra aspect of normal cannabis.

They call this new variety Australian Bastard Cannabis (ABC), and we gave away many seeds to interested breeders, as well as giving away a large batch of ABC x Flo.

They received feedback from readers who said to have this strain before. One Australian grower said that the ABC was kwon as Mutant, and that some thought it might be a “colchicine polyploidy experiment gone wrong”.

One local cultivator named “Volcano” grew up some of our last collection of ABC x Flo seeds. He germinated the seeds indoor in BC during March and the seeds had germinated in seven to ten days.

ABC strain first set of leaves identical to regular cannabis, before the first true leaves appeared that differences became evident.

“Those leaves came out completely unlike the serrated leaf ”said Volcano. “In fact, there are no serrated edges on these leaves, they darker green and shiny, looking-they usually got no larger than two inches.”

“The males flowered early, some before the end of July” said Volcano. “The females were compact with short internodes. They were heavily branched with many leaves. The buds formed differently on every plant, but they were all very resinous with cannabis-like buds. But anyway, the developed plant does not look like cannabis”.

The weed were reach an average height of about three feet and harvested in November, trimmed and hung to dry. The plants approximated yield of three dry ounces per plant.

The weed smoked very clean, with a light, spicy flavor.

Definitely ABC can become the ultimate camouflage strain of millennium.

This is what these buds look like when the plant has been grown out – it doesn’t look much like a cannabis plant at all! Still, this growth pattern is a mutation which means that not all seeds will grow like this. This is an important fact to keep in mind with any of the current ‘stealth’ strains.

This Frisian Duck plant was grown outdoors in a greenhouse. More than half of Frisian Duck plants grow bright purple buds!

One of the most popular variations of the Ducksfoot (Ducksfeet?) strain is called Frisian Duck by Dutch Passion. This strain thrives outdoors and grows with the traditional stealthy leaves. This strain also often makes bright, beautiful purple buds (with cold enough temperatures) that have a fresh scent that is sometimes even a little fruity.

“Ducksfoot” strains have a leaf mutation that makes them look less like regular cannabis plants, which can be helpful for stealth. There are a few different Ducksfoot-style strains!
