New Strains Alert: Washing Machine, Forbidden Fruit, and MoreJeremiah WilhelmOctober 6, 2017
In this week’s New Strains Alert, we’re showing some love for Ripper Seeds out of Barcelona, Spain.
Ripper Seeds’ Washing Machine and Zombie Kush share a Bubba Kush ancestor that adds weighed physical relaxation to the overall composition of the strains’ effects. Toxic and Lemon Ice lean predominantly on Haze genetics, in the form of Lemon Haze and Ripper Haze, for their strong cerebral effects as well as their specific genetic resistance to certain types of mold and pests.
Forbidden Fruit’s mouthwatering cross of two of my favorite strains (Cherry Pie x Tangie) make it a must have for terpene lovers seeking a complex bouquet and well-rounded effects. But if you’re seeking a stinky OG that will lay you out, look no further than Tuna OG. This strain’s intense skunky aroma is the first cut into a prime grade of sedative cannabis.

Acid Dough by Ripper Seeds is a sativa-dominant strain with energetic effects. Created by crossing Lilly (Queen Mother x Congo) x OG Badazz, this strain offers sweet, candy-like aromas with bright pineapple flavors and a generous yield. Acid Dough has an approximate 65-70 day flowering time and colorful foliage. This strain responds well to cold temperatures during the finishing process, creating buds with deep violet hues and extra resin production. Acid Dough won 2nd Place Best Sativa at the 2017 Spannabis Champions Cups and 2nd Place at the 2016 Expogrow Cup.
Forbidden Fruit is the mouthwatering cross of Cherry Pie x Tangie. This sumptuous genetic cross expresses a beautiful dense bud structure with deep purple hues, dark green foliage, and wiry orange hairs. The terpene profile is a perfect mixture of Cherry Pie’s musky, sweet cherry undertones and Tangie’s loud tropical flavors. There are also notes of pine, mango, and passionfruit candy. The effects hit hard between the eyes and lay into the body with each hit. Forbidden Fruit’s deep physical relaxation and mental stoniness make it perfect for dulling minor physical discomfort and discarding stress.
Lemon Ice by Ripper Seeds is a sativa-dominant strain created from Lemon Haze x Afghani. This collision of opposites creates a unique strain with columnar bud structures that adapts well to “sea of green” growing methods. The strain is also known for its furry buds knotted with pistils and a spicy, citrus-forward aroma. Lemon Ice does have a longer than average flowering time of 75-85 days, but patient gardeners are rewarded with a more than generous yield. Ripper Seeds defines the effects as “bearable,” which translates to “mind your dosage” as strong sativa effects can be hard to handle for those prone to anxiety.
Tuna OG (or OG Tuna Kush) is a 50/50 hybrid cross of OG Kush and Black Tuna. This strain’s robust potency and strong one-two punch to the body and mind make it ideal for seasoned cannabis consumers. The loud terpene profile is also something to take note of, consisting of an overwhelming skunk aroma with intermittent floral and earthy notes. The buds express rust-red hairs and deep emerald greenery that makes the mouth water when coupled with the strain’s intoxicating aroma. Remember to mind your dosage while enjoying Tuna OG, as its strong effects will debilitate even the most seasoned cannabis consumer.
Toxic is a strain created from two of Ripper Seeds’ most award-winning strains, Ripper Haze and Criminal. This combination bends supplementary parts of the Haze and Critical Mass lineages to fashion a potent and dense flower with natural resistance to pests and mold. This natural resistance alongside the 60-65 day flowering time make Toxic an ideal strain for outdoor growers. Its abundance of trichomes and overall resin production also make it a perfect strain for extracting. Toxic won 1st Prize Resins at the 2016 Expogrow Cup in Spain.
Washing Machine by Ripper Seeds is a funky cut created by crossing Exodus Cheese with Bubba Kush. It emits a delicate aroma of moist earth and anise, with effects that lay heavily on the body. This strain’s stout physical effects are designed for heavyweight cannabis consumers and may overwhelm unseasoned smokers. It has a snappy 60-65 day flowering time, and the breeder recommends truncating its vegetative cycle due to its incredible desire to stretch. Washing Machine won 3rd Prize for Outdoor Flower at the 2017 THC Cup.
Zombie Kush by Ripper Seeds comes from two different Kush genetics, resulting in hues of purple embedded within its trichome-laden foliage. Created by crossing Sideral (Lavender Kush x Amnesia) with Bubba Kush, Zombie Kush’s unique genetic lineage and complex terpene profile won it 1st Prize at the 2017 Napoli Secret Cup for Best Extract and 1st Prize Indica at the 2016 UCLA Cup. It has enjoyable and potent effects with a snappy indoor flowering time of 55-60 days.
