Anyone know how the strain came into being?  If not, is it clone only or are there seeds of it?  Thanks!

Try doing a Google search: What is Snowcap Marijuana's genetics? Or just look up Snowcap Marijuana. =Judy=

Got a little bit of info from that, but not much.  Some folks say it's a humbolt indica, others say it's a sativa that came from bag seed and grown in Fort Bragg.  Nobody claimed the lineage on any of the sites I read.  Oh well.  Good stuff, though!

i like the fort bragg cut :thumb:, and that is mostly what we see in this area. it has proven to be challenging to get a proper cut, although my psychic powers are telling me :sorcerer: a proper cut will be available soon.....

good luck

Here's a site that has Jason King's review of it.

http://cannabisculture.com/v2/node/371

He thinks it's a haze cross from a Sensi Seeds indoor mix, and it looks like one in the photo on that site.  Let me see if I can find more on this.  I love this strain because it really beats down my depression, and this time of year is when it is at its worst.


Here's another site on the lineage from icmag where people are arguing over it.  There is a fantastic photo of an indoor grow of snowcap, and it looks like some kind of skunk IMO, but I'm no grower.  IF you look at the leaves, you can tell it's a sat. dom hybrid.

BTW, if anybody is able to paste those photos, that would be cool.  I'm technologically challenged.

OK, after years of smoking snocap, and then not smoking Snocap, I've got a couple ideas what it could be: old Sensi Seed strains that aren't currently on their website, but existed until fairly recently.  I'm sure somebody still has these strains - and maybe somebody made Snocap with them.  

Silver Pearl x Haze/NL #5
Silver Pearl (NL #5 x Skunk #1/ Early Pearl)

But I'd bet it's the one with the haze nl cross.  I feel haze in Snocap buzz, and having some NL5 doesn't surprise me either.  It's got the top of the Early Pearl - a big, huge cola - just like Early Pearl .  Anyway, that's my guess.  I'm done.

Found some Mr. Nice seeds that might have similar (or the same) genetics:
Early Pearl x Skunk #1 crossed with Haze.  I think though that there's some NL5 i Snocap, but maybe I'm wrong. It surely has Early Pearl and Haze in it, that much I know.

Photo of somebody's grow.  Doesn't look exactly like it, but the yield is something amazing.  I think it takes 70 days.

What strain from Sensi is it?  Does it have NL5 in it too?  Really smells like lemon.
