Big Sur Holy Weed

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 10, 2012 by highboldtage

Big Sur Holy Weed is one of the legendary California strains, but not from the Emerald Triangle.  Big Sur Holy Weed comes from the coastal area of California just south of San Francisco and Monterey,  and north of SamLuis Obispo.  It is one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Of course there is a back story to this strain just like with other legendary strains like Trainwreck or Chemdog.  Supposedly there was a monk named Perry living in the Big Sur area back in the 70s who developed this strain.  There are various versions of this story some involving a town called Gorda and an individual named Danbo.  Just google “monk named Perry.”

“now lets go to the book WEED by Jerry Kamstra 1974. this is fairly early report on BSHW. if you read the book you will believe the author really knows what he is talking about. he was down there buying the mexican weed in Zacatecas and elsewhere in Mexico. but he was a very early buyer and smuggler. go to the bottom paragraph of page 149.

“Zacatecas Purple is a variety of marijuana that grows in a particular high mountain valley in the state of Zacatecas. When cured the seeds from the colas have a distinctive purple hue. and the weed is exremely potent. especially if it is allowed to cure properly. in the late sixties a beatnik dealer planted a crop using some Zacatecas Purple seeds in the mountains of Big Sur. The resultant weed came to be known as Big Sur Holy Weed and holy it was too. “”

“heres an article from marihuana monthly feb 1976 (see picture) about zihuatenejo purple a famous strain that did the rounds in the 70’s. maybe simmilar to the zacatecas purple that rellikbuzz dug up. ive even heard the rumours of a band of buddhist monks that originally grew bshw near tasahara in the big sur mountains, giving it the name holy weed by the dealers of that time. ”

There seems to be general agreement that Big Sur Holy Weed is an old Mexican strain called Zacatecas Purple, which may be now extinct, but some stories have it orginally  crossed with an Afghan.   At any rate all reports of the effects of Big Sur Holy Weed suggest that in effect it is mostly sativa, psychedelic and trippy.  There are also reports that the TH Seeds hybrid called S.A.G.E. contains Big Sur Holy Weed as it’s sativa component, and Mazar – i – Sharif as it’s Afghan component.

So we have a legendary strain, apparently held by an individual “Danbo” who sold it to the breeder Reeferman.  According to Reeferman (in one of the threads below) he only germed 10 or so seeds so this line was undoubtedly bottlenecked a bit.  So Reeferman is one source of this legend.  Also known to hold it (though unknown if it is the same Danbo/Reeferman line) are the breeders hothouseflowers (hhf) and the Breeders Choice Organization (not the Sannies Breeders Choice, the Breeders Choice from Cannabis Eye) and perhaps the breeder British Hempire and the breeder Bodhi.  Bodhi’s story is below,  and I suppose the question will be is Bodhi’s line the real deal, a related line, or perhaps as some suggest a Durban-Afghan cross of some kind, unrelated to Big Sur Holy Weed though attractive on its own merits.

So where can you find Big Sur Holy Weed?  It is not clear that Reeferman is still in business, or whether or not he still has the mamas and papas or any remaining seed stock.  Remaining Reeferman seeds are disappearing from the seed banks that carry his gear.  Breeders Choice listed Big Sure Holy Weed and a BSHW x Haze cross on their site a couple of years ago, and they might still have some stock but it is not on their site.  The Bodhi version is still listed at the Attitude under limited releases but it has been sold out for months.  So Big Sur Holy Weed is very hard to find at the moment.  I do think that there are several breeders working to preserve the strain though so perhaps in 2012 we will see new presentations of it.  Short of that I guess you could buy some SAGE and breed some F2s, F3s and F4s and look for some purple sativa phenos.  You will never get the original strain back but you might find something similar.  Or maybe you could mount a strain hunter expedition to the high mountain valleys of Zacatecas, where this strain might still exist (but maybe doesn’t due to paraquat.)  Even better, you could mount an expedition to the hills of Santa Cruz and Big Sur California where the strain might still exist.  Also possible that you might find a clone even if you can’t find seeds.  As long as you are there you might as well score some Blue Dream seeds too, another legend from the Santa Cruz area.

A discussion on Grass City:

The center of the marijuana-growing industry in the United States is in northern California, especially Humboldt County, where growers use the latest scientific methods to produce first-quality crops. California marijuana is not only as good as most foreign varieties but far more likely to reach American consumers in a relatively fresh state, at or near peak potency. Among the best California varieties is one known as Big Sur Holy Weed, which was originally grown from seeds of Zacatecas Purple, a rare Mexican strain.[13]

Smoke report and some nuggage:

A smoke report:


“This strain smelled so delicious! Although listed on the menu as an Indica, the buzz provided was definitely more Hybrid like and “old school.” If your youth years consisted of the 70’s or 80’s, be SURE to get your hands on your this one if you come across it. Big Sur Holy Weed just took me back in time.”

Strain description of the Bodhi Seeds line:

“these were a special gift to a well connected friend from an old grower in big sur, she gave them to me because she knew that i loved seeds, and would do them right. can i 100% verify this is the original undiluted or unhybridized big sur holy weed line from perry the monk, no can do, but what i can say is this is unique, oldschool, mind ablaze green fire time capsule weed from the big sur mountains.

the plants do great indoors and out and can get quite big. it has genetically purple phenos, pink pistilled phenos, indica dominant phenos, a less common sativa pheno, and loads of hybrid phenos, smells range from soggy bread to blueberry menthol, it seems to be a afghani mexican hybrid masterfully bred towards the sativa high and the indica frame. the true magic of this strain is the amazing sublime sativa high, a beautiful blast from the past.

this seed run was an open pollination of 4 males and 6 females, not alot, but enough to get the job done… a small population open pollination in a tent means your going to mostly the beans made from the first two males that opened…. the super quick sativa pheno male… and the fat indica dom male, initial reports are showing that the indica pheno is mostly represented… this line is called big sur holy bud to differentiate it from the big sur holy weed lines by hhf, danbo, and reeferman. everybody that has tried this line has fallin in love with it. im really happy to gift this back to the community.

Haze Brothers Diss Humboldt Pot……in 1980!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2010 by highboldtage

Marijuana is now the top cash crop in California, having recently pulled ahead of various fruits, nuts and swamis. This presents a lot of California farm folk with the unenviable chore of hyping their product across the land while doing their damndest to hide every illegal speck of the stuff.
Take the Haze brothers. For four years they’ve been captivating American potheads with what they brazenly declare to be the “finest pot grown anywhere on earth.”
Using seeds from their favorite imported smoke, the Haze brothers came out with “Purple Haze’ “Golden Haze” and a range of other colors four years ago, and have been breeding and crossbreeding subsequent generations of those botanical wonders. “The colors are a fluke,” says Haze. “We never know what color a crop will come out. One year its tannish brown, next year it’s greenish purple.”
Joe Haze says northern-California pot is upstaging his “brand,” and without justification. “The stuff they grow up there is mostly indica, but it’s harvested early to get it in before the frost,” he says. “in our county the flowers pump out resin until December, and Haze pot is from sativa seeds.”

These lines are some of the founder strains of the modern Cannabis genepool, true Heirloom, Classic Cannabis plants. The Cranberry Haze was created from some of the most prized breeding plants in the Breeders Choice genetic libary. Parental plants where selected over three years of intensive testing of Male and Female combinations of our favourite plants and represent, what we feel to be the best of the qualities in these classic lines.

The quality of High of the is truly remarkable. A wonderful expression of how Haze dominant plants can be, delivering a very clear and totally ceilingless, happy high.�

In the Number 8 we have selected and used the very best of the Purple Haze males in the BCO collection, focusing especially upon the beutiful tastes delivered by the finest Purple Haze. Pure Purple hazes are extremely rare, they carry very high Brix sugar levels and unique aromatic compounds not found in other lines. The very best of these traits is carried over into the Cranberry Haze plants.

”Purple” phenotypes deliver exceptional tasting herbs. Deep grapey aromas will be found in the purple phenotypes along with a unmistakeable oily effect in the mouth on smoking. The taste leans towards fresh unsweetened Cranberry juice and tropical fruit to lemon on the inhale.

Eureka’s New Medical Marijuana Dispensary

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 30, 2009 by highboldtage

Eureka’s New Medical Marijuana Dispensary

That’s the good news for us medical marijuana patients.  The Hummingbird Healing Center is close to St. Joseph’s Hospital and near the bus.

Thanks to the stupidity of the Eureka City Council and City Manager this dispensary will provide NO TAX REVENUE to our cash strapped city because it is located OUTSIDE the city limits.

Way to go.  Now maybe these idiots will come to their senses and allow reasonable medical marijuana in the city that is the capitol of the Emerald Triangle.  One can only hope for intelligence in government.  Of course I mean institutional stupidity.  Councilmember Linda Atkins brought this forth courageously a few months ago and I hope she revisits it now that the dank is out of the bag.

Here is a link to the website for the Hummingbird Healing Center:
