Our flagship sativa Huron Haze, is just months from first release. We have spent the past several years resurrecting a strain that has skunk origins from 1990 and is bred for the Canadian environment. All parental lineage was climatized in the fertile farmland of Huron County bordering Lake Huron, hence its name. This nearly pure sativa finishes flowering in late September and contains no Haze despite its name, which is more a moniker of the cool and often damp climate it was created for. A medium to large plant that thrives in cooler climates, adverse conditions and finishes late September.
Freestone's Proprietary Sativa strain began with an original Skunk strain acquired in 1990 from a hydroponics grower in Hamilton Ontario. Around '98 the Skunk was crossed with a short Highland pure sativa strain(Nepalese) for vigor and a shorter plant structure. The Proprietary Sativa was then backcrossed until a homogenous medium structure, self supporting sativa was the main phenotype by 2003. The strain was grown sporadically until 2018 when it was crossed with another similar Highland sativa strain with the desired growth period, structure, and weather tolerance we needed to turn out a unique and nearly pure sativa cold weather strain. This cross was a purple highland sativa also known for its pest resistance and ability to thrive in cold climates.
There are actually no Haze genetics in this sativa and on a rare instance the skunk phenotype shows itself.
