Nesta Robert Marley, OM (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981), more widely and commonly known as Bob Marley, was a Jamaican singer-songwriter and musician. He was the rhythm guitarist and lead singer for the ska, rocksteady and reggae bands The Wailers (1963-1974) and Bob Marley & The Wailers (1974–1981). Marley remains the most widely known and revered performer of reggae music, and is credited with helping spread both Jamaican music and the Rastafari movement to a worldwide audience.[1]

Marley’s music was heavily influenced by the social issues of his homeland, and he is considered to have given voice to the specific political and cultural nexus of Jamaica.[2] His best-known hits include “I Shot the Sheriff”, “No Woman, No Cry”, “Could You Be Loved”, “Stir It Up”, “Get Up Stand Up”, “Jamming”, “Redemption Song”, “One Love” and, “Three Little Birds”,[3] as well as the posthumous releases “Buffalo Soldier” and “Iron Lion Zion”. The compilation album Legend (1984), released three years after his death, is reggae’s best-selling album, going ten times Platinum which is also known as one Diamond in the U.S.,[4] and selling 25 million copies worldwide.[5][6]

Heath Robinson’s Black Rose

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2012 by highboldtage

I am posting this up here because there is some controversy about this strain, and whether or not this is the legit strain or not.

I haven’t ever had the pleasure of smoking the Black Rose but it does look good so I won’t comment on the controversy.  From what I can gather Heath Robinson’s seeds are being sold on the Highlifeseeds site with his knowledge and approval.  I can’t guarantee it, its the internet.  Anyway for those who are interested find the Black Rose here:

From the site:

Black Rose by Heath Robinson

The Big Purple one.. sticky, sweet & smelling delicious!

Genetics: Purple Black Russian x Purple Shive Skunk
Variety: Sativa/Indica mix
Feminised: Regular (not feminised)
Grows: Greenhouse, Grows indoors, Grows outdoors
Flowering Time: 9-10 Weeks
Harvest Month: October
THC Content: 18.07% CBD 0.53

Black Rose by Heath Robinson is an interesting variety with its genetics coming from carefully selected breeding.

In California there are many different varieties such as Purple Sativa, “the Purps” & Californian orange of course. These strain are as interesting as much for their colours as for their fruity tastes & zingy highs

Black rose belongs to the “purple family” of cannabis strains,  these plants are called purple even if they are lightly coloured e.g. light pink or light violet, contrary to the Black Rose ones which are sometimes almost black . Unlike other purple strains, temperature  does not play a role in the colour definition of the Beautiful Black Rose.

Black Rose has a healthy dose of the Shiva Skunk characteristics, genetics and growth patterns. It is easy to cultivate and finishes flowering to perfection in 9 to 10 weeks although can be harvested sooner.

Its has a very high THC for a “purp”content being around 18.07% and CBD 0.53.

Black Rose gives the smoker a energetically cerebral high, perfect for enjoying the great outdoors or for partying & clubbing with your friends, and obviously the strong purple is a welcome bonus!

‘Master growers’ cultivating a higher grade of marijuana

A new breed of connoisseur is producing pot that is potent, tastes smooth and has a pleasing aroma — the kind of product now expected by ever-more discriminating consumers who frequent medical cannabis dispensaries.


By Joe Mozingo, Los Angeles Times


March 25, 2012

“Consumers have quickly developed a sophisticated palate,” said Andrew McBeth, publisher at the marijuana niche Green Candy Press. “Like fine wine, the marijuana must look amazing, have a distinctive bouquet and have the cachet of being a well-known and popular strain.”

Wally, in-house grower for a warehouse dispensary in Long Beach, spent years honing his skills on the underground market after realizing pot helped tamp down the tics he suffered from Tourette’s syndrome. A 36-year-old native of Santa Cruz, he first worked trimming the marijuana harvest for older hippies.

“I learned everything about growing, and I had a million questions and they were happy to share,” he said. “So many little tricks: They would run molasses in the last weeks of flowering to have sweeter buds. Or they went into caves in Santa Cruz to get bat guano and make it into a tea to put in the soil.”,0,3385996.story
