Put in the marketplace in autumn, this indica-dominant (65%) selection got here as an actual bombshell, securing two first locations at hashish cups (Expogrow Cup and Karma Cup) in the exact same yr. Also, it was included within the prestigious “Top 10 Strains of 2017” checklist compiled by High Times journal. Two extra cup victories have been to comply with in 2018, on the Karma Cup once more and on the Cannazores VI Cannabis Cup.
Remo Chemo undoubtfully boasts excellent genetics, however another excuse for its prompt success definitely was to be discovered within the bonus of recognition it loved proper from the beginning, due to the excessive profile of Dinafem’s collaboration with Remo the “Urban Grower”, a famend grower and also you-tuber from Canada. It was Remo himself who created Remo Chemo as a daily seed pressure a number of years in the past by crossing Bubba Kush to UBC Chemo Kush.
The Dinafem breeders took on the duty then to carry a specific Remo Chemo reducing into feminized seed type and make it accessible to the entire world. Both UBC Chemo Kush and Bubba Kush are true pressure legends. UBC stands for “University of British Columbia” as a result of legend has it that UBC Chemo Kush was bred by Dr. David Suzuki at this college within the early 1970s, in an try to develop a natural medication in opposition to the facet-results of most cancers chemotherapy.
This mission was absolutely completed as that challenge yielded a plant with as much as 29% THC and powerful anti-nausea and painkilling results. Somehow a variety of Canadian breeders managed to get their palms on a clone of this plant in a while. As for the opposite father or mother of Remo Chemo – most likely for sure a lot about Bubba Kush’s story of success right here…Remo Chemo shares the excellent medicinal properties of UBC Chemo Kush, with its THC content material amounting as much as 24% whereas containing solely little or no CBD, no more than 0.1%.
However, due its strongest indica impact, the capturing star of 2017 is just not solely highly regarded with medical marijuana sufferers but additionally leisure customers. Also due to its traditional intense Kush taste which blends earthy with oily and peppery notes that come by way of in each the nostril and style.
Appearance smart, Remo Chemo crops stay as much as their indica-dominant nature, exhibiting dense progress with darkish inexperienced leaves which can flip reddish to purple throughout flowering, thus offering a further attraction. Buds are roundish and compact, showered with tons of trichomes in the long run. They want 65-70 days to develop and ripen, promising a harvest of as much as 500g/m2.
Given an optimum setting (Dinafem underlines the significance of loads of mild and low air humidity), with a peak of merely as much as 2.5 meters single crops are doubtlessly able to producing ample yields of as much as one kilo. Maturity might be reached round mid-October below pure mild, which in most European international locations is early sufficient to keep away from very chilly temperatures, frequent rain falls and the consequential threat of mildew infestation.
The Doc was fired up for this very fashionable pressure and put two feminized Remo Chemo beans into the beginning blocks for a take a look at run. He didn’t have to attend lengthy for the seeds to germinate, as early as 2.5 days after sowing the seedlings raised their heads above the bottom. The Doc scheduled 5 weeks of progress for the 2 crops. It quickly turned out this was actually wanted as within the first 2-three weeks they have been rising at a leisurely tempo, with very tight internodal spacing and hesitant facet branching.
Then one plant began to set itself aside a bit from the opposite by displaying a stronger intuition to stretch vertically and horizontally. Both crops have been characterised by indica’s typical darkish inexperienced leaves. When the Doc triggered them into flowering by switching from 18/6 to 12/12, they’d reached 31 and 41 cm tall. They confirmed a excessive readiness to flower, pushing out feminine preflowers so shortly – after 5 days – it was as if they’d been wishfully ready for that. After that they continued at that pace in order that The Doc may virtually watch the shoot ideas morph right into a knobbly rose bud form.
Two and half weeks into flowering, numerous white pistils had emerged from the younger buds. Another two weeks later, the 2 Remo Chemos have been bestrewn with thick fuzzy white flower clusters. Amazingly, their calyxes and flower leaves have been already displayed a glistening resin carpet at that early stage which brought about The Doc to gladly anticipate an entire gush of resin to comply with.
Well, it was similar to that within the following weeks – trichomes poured out of the buds in plentiful quantities and made them seem as frosty silver white as an aster coated with hoarfrost in a chilly early autumn morning. And the 2 crops additionally exhibited splendorous autumn coloured leaves as they neared maturity.
Especially one specimen was a feast for the eyes with its yellow-pink, pink and purple shade and sugar leaves. The different one remained greener, however its sugar leaves have been interwoven with darkish purple hues, too.
The Doc cherished this gaudy play of colours and mentioned “what a imaginative and prescient of enjoyment this mixture of many various colours and resin in abundance is! However, these crops will not be solely visually interesting, but additionally scent-smart… with their buds giving off a divine heavy Kush scent as robust as it might probably get.
It blends distinct notes of soil, espresso, gasoline and pepper into a real spice bomb which is even refined with a shocking be aware of lavender – merely incredible!” The look of the buds was indica all the way in which, they grew to become as chubby and dense as described by Dinafem, displaying a medium excessive calyx-to-leaf ratio.
In the top, the 2 Remo Chemos had stretched to heights of 61 and 78 cm, the extra colourful one was the taller specimen. With 64 and 68 days of flowering, the 2 completed their flowering job completely on time. A few weeks later, he may fill massive harvest jars with 67 and 80 grams which for him was pretty removed from report-breaking, however nonetheless an interesting quantity. Countless trichomes have been spectacularly protruding of the dried buds which gave them a most attractive, tremendous sugary look.
Their heavy perfume had hardly modified after the drying course of, all notes beforehand perceived have been nonetheless current, making for a compelling Kush scent expertise. The Doc additionally hoped to realize a compelling expertise from the Remo Chemo vapor take a look at after all. When he loaded his Mighty vaporizer with half a gram, he suffered from heavy arthritic pains in his legs once more.
He deeply inhaled a primary draw, and when the therapeutic vapor poured into his mouth, it acquired crammed all through with an immensely intense spicy Kush taste that lingered for an excellent whereas after exhaling. ”Now, that’s Kush relish at its absolute best!”, The Doc swooned.
Immediately after the primary toke he sensed that his synapses have been switching to leisure, a deep inside sigh went by way of The Doc, and some tokes later, the entire thing grew to become bodily, too: little by little, the aches disappeared from his limbs, giving technique to relaxed comfortableness.
Simultaneously it felt as if his head was was one massive wad of cotton – a mighty indica stone was rolling by way of the labyrinth of his mind, making him tremendously stoned! Although he began to starve for some treats from the fridge, throughout the first hour he simply wasn’t in a position to rise up from his seat and go there, too heavy was the stonedness weighing down his physique and thoughts. Then he managed to shake it off a bit, raid the fridge and fulfill his munchies.
The clock mentioned 2.5 hours when that spectacular Remo Chemo indica present was over.The Doc’s résumé: “The big hype around Remo Chemo is definitely legitimate, I can testify to that myself now. This strain is not only a great grow room companion, it has every trick in the book in terms of smell, taste and effect, packing a real wallop. And it’s a real blessing to me that it has got resounding medicinal qualities as well. Three cheers for Remo the Urban Grower, Dinafem and Remo Chemo!”
