The genetics of the strain Brainstorm by Dutch Passion were introduced by the company in 1996 and the strain was then updated again in 2006. This update involved the talented breeders scouring the original stock of seeds and selecting a clone which simply stood out from the others. Thus they created their current Brainstorm seeds; new and improved. From this the breeders went on to concoct something even better by feminising the seeds.
Feminising is simply the act of genetically modifying seeds so that they will grow into a majority of female plants. This breeding technique, now used so often all over the world, was perfected by our very own Dutch Passion who were the first breeders to create a 95% female crop. Many breeders feel that this is very much the way to go when breeding since in the day of regular seeds, which produce a 50/50 split of males and females, breeders would have to plant double the number of seedlings to produce the desired number of females. The only real use that the males have in a crop is producing the pollen necessary for reproduction but in these days of technology and growing-wizardry, one does not even need them for that. It is entirely possible to stress the females into producing the same pollen which can render a more impressive result. This is, however, significantly more difficult to pull off.
The strain has a mixture of Northern Lights #5 genetics, giving it is superior power and yield, combined with the genetics of Haze giving it a softening effect. The strain is a Sativa, Indica cross which grows to a medium height and can be grown both indoors and out.
