Welcome SKUNK peeps to today’s Blast from the Past MILF, Cherry Hemmy; yowza! I wanted to revisit this insane recombination because I have recently brought her back into the mix for breeding purposes. Over at KOS there is a variety called Hemmy Heavy, and she is a BX1 Cherry Hemmy, outcrossed to KOS’ Darkling Sativa which has Vietnamese Jungle Black in it, then BX’d back to the Cherry Hemmy. A treasure-trove of serious genetics here folks.

Another real ass kicker with 50% Cherry Hemmy over at KOS is the Red Sky; and the Hemmy Black, which is Cherry Hemmy x Darkling Sativa, and is pure cat-pissy goodness. So, let’s have a little looksee at the goddess of exotic power, the Cherry Hemmy—check it out…

THE DEETS

Cherry Hemmy’s potency is straight up “murder-death-kill” in a very crazy recombination that consists of, of my olden F3 Cherry Bomb male (P1), out of Hawaii, built from 3 landrace Hawaiian sativas, and the legendary Cherry AK47. The female P1 was a hybrid of Rez Dog’s old Firecracker (NYCD/William’s Wonder), x Tibetan Gasilia (landrace/cultivar), that we all affectionately called “Butane Gas” due to her extreme fuel/diesel/Honey Oil smells and flavors. I believe Gasilia was the name of the province or town this strain came from.

Frosty Cherry Hemmy Bud

The female P1 Firecracker/Tibetan hybrid itself was called Hemmingway. The Tibetan came through the hybrid strongly, with regards to space-cadet potency/resin production, supernatural vigor, and large yields. That’s all the good stuff, however, as we all know, it’s not all “roses” all the time, especially when dealing with landrace/cultivar types, so the Cherry Hemmy (like the Hemmingway as well) has harder rules when it comes to her needs, and will freak out if those needs aren’t met. You need to be an enlightened grower to pull these off well; and you’ll need experience growing landrace types too.

I have hybridized the Cherry Hemmy as I mentioned above, using other KOS stock, and this has mellowed out her fussiness to a large degree, but if you are growing or planning to grow any of the Cherry Hemmy hybrids, get your selection skills on man! Because there are super-gems in there my green friends.

THE SMOKING RUN DOWN BY REV

I have found 80% of the Cherry Hemmy females to be deadly and huge; but, about 1:7 (one out of eight) females are crazy killers. These females are fairly easy to spot once you have seen the Cherry Hemmy females, and they are (a tad) smaller and branchier than the other females, and the buds are rock hard. Still great yields; just more buds, of smaller size each is all. This is always the female I breed with, or hunt for when growing this hybrid.

That being said, if you looked up the phrase: “Why do you think they call it dope” in Wikipedia, you should really find a photo of the Cherry Hemmingway there—LoL—truly an apex example of what I like to call “drooling on your shoes weeds.” One caveat here is the unique nature of the Cherry Hemmy due to the Tibetan influences, while she is devastating and difunctionally potent, she is smiles for miles. When under her influence I often describe it as “golden” because my outlook and state of mind is so peaceful and happy. She’s that uncontrollable laughing kind of resin profile—wink.

Growing Cherry Hemmy Hybrids

POINTS TO CONSIDER WHEN GROWING HEMMY BASED VARIETIES:

  • You need to have any light issues under control totally and have total darkness during flowering. She does not dig light pollution or photoperiod inconsistencies, at all!
  • As I always recommend, if flowering in containers, flower clones if at all possible. If you cannot do this, you need to at least allow the plants to be in vegetative state for at least 60 days before initiating flowering.
  • High odds you will see one of these special female Cherry Hemmys manifest itself in her hybrids, one out of 8 females, but it’s essentially a 100% dealio you’ll find one out of 16 females. The hunt is well worth it amigos. Well worth it, you savvy?
  • KOS’ Hemmy Heavy hybrid is ripe hunting grounds for those special recombinations and the Hemmy Heavy also leans towards that real Cat Piss range for smells and flavors—it’s an acquired taste for reals, but one of my favorites.

Final Thoughts

Kingdom Organic Seeds

Hope you all enjoyed today’s Blast from the Past MILF, Cherry Hemmy, she is fully unique in a world where a lot of the cannabis is actually very similar in my opinion. I am not one of “the many” when it comes to my cannabis palate, but I used to be. As you experience more variety and keep your tolerance in check somewhat, you will begin to become a true connoisseur of the wide range of experiences you can have enjoying cannabis. Variety matters baybee! L8r G8rs.

The Rev
I'm The Rev, and I have been with SKUNK for about a decade now. I hail from Southern California, spent mucho time in Northern California, and now reside in Southern Oregon; always coastal. I am an all natural style cannabis grower and I have written a couple books on the subject - check out True Living Organics 2nd Edition on Amazon - I have been growing for over 45 years, and I have been breeding cannabis for over 30 years. Check out kingdomorganicseeds.com to see some exotic selections. Growing connoisseur cannabis is what I teach mostly, growing it in living soil without using liquid organic nutrients to feed the plant. I am also a highly skilled synthetics grower, hydroponics, aeroponics, DWC/SWC/NFT, Ebb and Flow, and soilless, but I cringe when smoking synthetic grown herbs, so for the last 15 years or so I preach the artisan style of all natural growing, specializing in container growing. Cheers and welcome aboard.
