As one of the few dispensaries who take the time to display plant genetics on the packaging of the flower they sell (I can’t speak to the labels on clones or seeds the sell), I feel like it’s a huge faux pas to mislead patients with these labels who may very well get a lot out of knowing precisely what they are consuming genetically speaking. Especially when this misinformation happens in such isolation that it might be believed.
For the record, from the breeder (“unknown”):
Purple Lemon Ghostbuster is a strain that was bred in two phases, by myself and the late Loofaman (RIP). It is a three way hybrid containing genetics acquired from Harborside Health Center in Oakland California (Purple Urkle and Harlequin) and a Super Lemon Haze male (at least 1/2 SLH) from the Emerald City (Seattle).
I personally named and crossed PLG (Purple Lemon Ghostbuster) with Medi Haze, a CBD strain SB carried but discontinued, and as a gesture of goodwill gave a portion of these seeds to Sandia Botanicals, in hopes of improving their CBD flower offerings. I did not name this cross for them, I figured if they used it they would ask, or else come up with something creative (and credit me).
Now, they are selling in seed and flower form, “Purple Lemon Ghostbuster,” with genetics listed as Ghost OG X Purple Lemon Haze. I didn’t even get a thank you. They must feel entitled to this gene pool because I spent a lot of money on Medi Haze flower at their shop and eventually found two bag seeds that produced offspring that were undeniably pure Medi Haze based on lab work?
