In honor of Groundhog's Day, we wanted to showcase the closest strain by name to the holiday -- TH Seeds' The Hog.
If you're wanting to cultivate this little piggy though, your time is growing short. It's a discontinued variety, and unless you're lucky enough to come by a clone, the only place to buy it is from Linda Seeds. You won't find a feminized version, either.
She's a gem though -- and even won the Amsterdam High Times Cannabis Cup in 2002 in the indica category (submitted by Hemp Works). Originally from Tennessee, the strain made its way to the cup by way of San Digo, CA, where she developed a cult following for her couch-lock ability.
Flowering time is around 60 days, she grows bushy to an average height of 4.5ft, and yields are above average at 400-600 p.s.m. She's a derivative of Hawgsbreath (aka San Diego Hog), whose origins remain unknown.
Here are some of the hybrids and crossbreeds of this type of marijuana bud:
HogZilla: The Hog x Kimbo Kush
Green Gummy: The Hog x Peyote Purple #7
Piglet: The Hog x Chem Breath
Fat Axl: AK 47 x The Hog
So if you do find yourself lucky enough to be filling a bowl with The Hog today, don't forget to share!
