There were quite a few potential hybrids passing our test labs during the last ten to twelve years, but the most obvious strain to cross them with had been put aside due to the desire to breed with some of the more modern strains. Being such a strong dominant strain there were a lot of phenotypical inconsistencies in their F2-F4 offspring, and due to the unstable nature of the modern hybrid parents we found it difficult to get beyond the F4 generation and still have the original donor plants in good health. This bring me back to that obvious strain that we put aside, which has proven to be at the top of the list for many successful breeding programs, 'The Pure' aka Skunk#1 from the Flying Dutchmen. There are a few female 'The Pure' phenotypes in our library, ranging from great growth improvement to the incredible aromas from the Skunk #3 (Drietje) and 'The Pure' males are very predictable in regards to breeding with them. The Elvis is a combination of two powerhouses of the cannabis world, with the intense AK47 sativa high that made this the most popular strain ever made and the sweet skunky aftertaste that improves the smoothness of the overall smoke. These sweet skunky aromas are not overpowering the spicy AK47 but adding an extra dimension, almost like a sweet and spicy mango chutney. One of the main benefits the Skunk #3 adds to the Elvis is a shortened growth and flowering period, with a more stout appearance and a few weeks faster to mature the Elvis has the potential to become the biggest surprise of 2012. 2012 is the year that the King returns, so no more lonesome nights - it's time to put some rock 'n' roll in your grow room.
