Flowering time for indoor is counted from the day the 12/12 light cycle is started and is based on the standard 4 weeks vegetative time from seed. It can vary depending on style of grow (seed plants/clones, hydro/soil, etc.), the products used, and quality of plant care. Outdoor flowering is also influenced by the time of sowing, soil/nutrients/water quality, weather, and pests.
Yield will vary in each individual grow because it depends on many factors that you influence: the size of your plants, light intensity, quality of plant care, cultivation style, products used, etc. Our max. yield is based on gr/m2 under 400W HPS/m2, organic soil cultivation with seeds and a 4 week vegetative time.
Aroma or taste is based on our results in organic soil cultivation. It can vary according to your style of grow, substrates, use of additional products (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) and the drying/curing process. Avoid giving fish emulsion during flowering, using plant or bud boosters, and similar products.
Germination results will vary when pre-soaking seeds in water. Fresh seed stock can germinate under these conditions - but not always. Most often, only pre-germinating in moist paper tissue works for fresh seeds. But this is also not full-proof and should only be done if you have enough seeds to spare.
To prevent complications, and achieve the consistent level of high germination rates that you should be getting from our seeds, please trust our advice and follow our guidelines in the GERMINATION GUIDE. Customers who soak their Mandala seeds in water or wet paper tissue do so at their own risk. We are not accountable for any failure in germination or complications caused by this method. If you have any issues regarding germination please read our Germination Troubleshooting Guide carefully before contacting us.
Please read our Germination Guide before germinating your Mandala seeds. Due to the high quality and fresh stock of our seeds we advise against soaking the seeds in water or germinating in paper tissue. >> READ MORE

For the first time Bhutanese landrace genetics from this mysterious and remote Himalayan country can be savoured and explored! White Bhutanese originates from mother plants cultivated from first-rate wild seed stock. The mother plants are completely authentic and unmodified since the time when these seeds were collected in the natural habitat. White Bhutanese is only one generation removed from its Himalayan source!
To facilitate outdoor cultivation and offer a feminized strain we hybridized the mother plants with a carefully selected pollen donor. The major characteristics of the Bhutanese landrace have been preserved, whilst improving and standardizing the overall quality of the flowering buds. This particular Sativa is from Wangdi Province in Central Bhutan. It grows in semi tropical climate with cool winters at an altitude of 1.300-2.000 meters. Our White Bhutanese is a very versatile strain with high mold resistance. She can be cultivated in tropical to warm temperate environments up to 43°N. The plants withstand heat and have been stress-tested up to 48°C/118°F in a greenhouse. Cultivators in regions with a constant photoperiod or high humidity should especially consider growing this strain.
White Bhutanese is a classical, tall Sativa with long internodes, which has to be taken into account when growing in containers or a greenhouse. Late planting and pruning is essential unless you have the space or resources to grow giants! In a Mediterranean or hot climate the plants can still reach up to 2,50 meters in containers if they are planted in June (northern hemisphere) and left unpruned. If a moderate size is desired, we recommend timing the planting season to allow for just one month vegetative growth. During this vegetative period pruning the main growing tip once should be sufficient. Too much pruning can backfire with landrace Sativas, especially in container cultivation, and decrease yield. So don’t be tempted to cut your plants down to a bonsai! White Bhutanese responds well to LST (low stress training) and, once you have figured out how to handle her size, she is otherwise very easy to grow and not fussy. Trimming the bottom shoots further simplifies plant care and increases the strength of the upper branches. White Bhutanese grows well in quality horticultural grade potting soil, but still requires additional feedings during flowering if grown in containers. Due to her vigour, size, and length of flowering time, sufficient nutrients should be provided over the full life cycle.
The Bhutanese landraces are extremely hardy and not prone to hermaphrodites. Both the mother genetics and White Bhutanese were stress-tested and found to be highly resistant. Keeping your plants as healthy as possible will further ensure a safe and great harvest. Trichome production is impressive. But don’t hold your breath waiting for them to turn amber! The wonderfully clear to slightly milky resin is a trademark of White Bhutanese. Time your harvest according to the strain details, the natural decrease in bud development and, of course, the weather forecast. As harvest nears you can enjoy an exotic variety of scents. It can be a mixture of spice, lemon, fruit, mint, and nuts in various combinations. It took a while before we could figure out a suitable comparison for this complex aroma palette. The nearest was the typical Indian sweets or “mithai” made from cashews, pistachios, cardamom, etc. Once this tasty herb is dried and cured the aroma matures to a unique synthesis that reflects the environment the plants grew in, but the lemon and mint remains typical.
The high has a smooth entry with an enduring effect. It’s a perfect balance between potency and everyday enjoyability. This herb is perfect for concentrating and creative projects, because it is not prone to interrupting your train of thoughts of triggering forgetfulness. The effects are mainly cerebral but also register in the body, with a physical laid-back state in the last quarter of the high which invites you to relax. However, this is a temporary phase and the buzz leaves behind a refreshed state of mental clarity. The relatively high CBG content enhances the medical applications of this strain such as for moderate pain relief, as a sleep aid, and treatment for glaucoma.

Info: LST or low stress training is a technique to keep the plants short and it also helps in developing the side branches. As long as the main stem is still supple it can be bent vertically.
We like to use a simple construction of long bamboo sticks (these are available at most garden centers). The stem is fastened with self-locking nylon cable ties. These are cheap and very practical for tying plants and/or supporting longer shoots.
What is CBG?
CBG (Cannabigerol) is non-psychoactive, sleep inducing, anti-microbial. It lowers intra-ocular pressure (IOP) Glaucoma.
Trends in Pharmacological Sciences Volume 30, Issue 10, October 2009, Pages 515-527
"CBG has been shown to have pain-relieving and anti-depressant effects that are greater than THC (Evans 1991, Musty-Deyo 2006). CBG does not interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors like THC but instead interacts with different receptors, some that multi-billion dollar drugs target. These include adrenoreceptors and serotonin (5-HT1A) receptors (Cascio 2010).
Even though CBG was first isolated in 1964, the first report of a high CBG-producing plant wasn’t until the 1980’s, when it was discovered in a French hemp population. In 2005, a team of researchers identified a CBG plant in Italy.
They crossed this CBG plant with other THC and CBD plants of “good breeding value.” With the help of genetic analysis and chromatography, they were crossbred with different varieties and cultivars, until they identified a strain that produced high amounts of CBG, with little to no THC (de Meijer et al.2005).
Today, the only known high-yielding CBG variety is presently in the greenhouses of GW Pharmaceuticals, where CBG makes up a small but consistent portion of Sativex, a cannabinoid mouth spray. So while CBG and other varieties exist, they’re current exploration and usage seem to be sparse or under lock and key.
Fortunately, CBG, THCV and other unique strains may organically surface..."
