Mr. Bob Hemphill, a longtime breeder and collector of rare genetics since the early 1990’s, grew up in northern Virginia. The first cannabis seeds he sprouted were pulled out of a bag of Mexican brick weed.
During a frost warning, he decided to bring his outdoor plants inside. This was his rough introduction to growing indoors. After a couple years of trial and error, his third year of growing resulted in an amazing harvest of homegrown citrusy sativa.
While still in high school, he attended a Grateful Dead concert, and for the first time experienced the high quality of cannabis being grown in California. It became evident that in order to have a consistent and reliable source for excellent cannabis, he would need to master the art of growing for himself.
He got his hands on some really dank seeds at a Phish show, after scoring a bag of kind buds grown in Humboldt. Mr. Bob Hemphill grew those seeds and the results were absolutely incredible.
