Moby Dick: The Legendary Weed Whale

Moby Dick is a cannabis strain that made Dinafem a legend. A robust Sativa-dominant hybrid, this pungent, woody flower is a blend of Jack Herer and White Widow that blows off a near-psychedelic cloud of fumes.

History of Moby Dick

Moby Dick arrived on the market in 2005, but its characteristics go back much further to the golden age of cannabis cultivation in Holland. The breeder King Kush, with the preserved identity, would be at the origin of the creation of this variety with the support and experience of Doctor OG. 

The crossing of a clone of more than 15 years of the archaic White Widow with another illustrious clone of Sativa, which counts among the oldest members of the collection of mothers of Dinafem, produced one of the most unforgettable varieties in Europe.

Moby Dick thus combines the best qualities of its parents: an excellent yield, a high resistance to parasites, a generous production of resin, and a delicious woody and spicy savor. It adapts itself to almost all the world’s regions, except for the tropical zones and the very coldest of countries.

Awards for the Moby Dick

Not surprisingly, Moby Dick has received many awards. It received the title of “Girl of the Year” in 2010 by the specialized newspaper Soft Secrets, then won the award of the best Sativa in the Summer Cup 2011 or won the Silver Cup in Argentina.

The most beautiful of the rewards, however, is the satisfaction that growers of the whole world draw from it. And its success can be measured by the numbers with Moby Dick shows up in the other seed banks, without link with the original variety of Dinafem. It is today distributed by Silent Seeds.

An All-Terrain Variety

One of the strong points of Moby Dick is that it takes advantage of both indoor and outdoor spaces. It requires, in both cases, a substrate of abundant quality and a generous contribution of water and nutrients.

Outside, it can reach 3 meters and leave more than one kilo of dried flowers with good climatic conditions and the know-how of the gardener, who should already have some experience before tackling the Whale.

If the heritage of the White Widow can be observed in the structure and the knots which accumulate, the Moby Dick flavor profile certainly comes from Haze, with smells of cedar, pine, incense, and even touches of pepper.

King Kush often says that its aromatic profile reminds him of “the aroma of wooden benches of an old church.” Its taste mixes citric accents and sweet, hazy, earthy notes, which make Moby Dick a delicious and authentic variety.

Have a Whale of a Time With Moby Dick

Pay attention when tasting Moby Dick. With a cannabinoid profile that pulls towards 21% THC, the experiment can prove to be perilous for the lungs of a neophyte. We also recommend having a small snack at your disposal to anticipate the hunger that will inevitably arrive.

For those who are looking for more of a walk in the woods than Moby Dick, Dinafem has developed Moby Dick CBD with a cannabidiol-rich plant from the CBD Crew. This last one comes with a THC:CBD ratio of 1:3, with 5% of THC and 15% of CBD, too much for many laws, but which can be found legally in countries that authorize access to cannabis for adults.
