Flowering time for indoor is counted from the day the 12/12 light cycle is started and is based on the standard 4 weeks vegetative time from seed. It can vary depending on style of grow (seed plants/clones, hydro/soil, etc.), the products used, and quality of plant care. Outdoor flowering is also influenced by the time of sowing, soil/nutrients/water quality, weather, and pests.
Yield will vary in each individual grow because it depends on many factors that you influence: the size of your plants, light intensity, quality of plant care, cultivation style, products used, etc. Our max. yield is based on gr/m2 under 400W HPS/m2, organic soil cultivation with seeds and a 4 week vegetative time.
Aroma or taste is based on our results in organic soil cultivation. It can vary according to your style of grow, substrates, use of additional products (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) and the drying/curing process. Avoid giving fish emulsion during flowering, using plant or bud boosters, and similar products.
Germination results will vary when pre-soaking seeds in water. Fresh seed stock can germinate under these conditions - but not always. Most often, only pre-germinating in moist paper tissue works for fresh seeds. But this is also not full-proof and should only be done if you have enough seeds to spare.
To prevent complications, and achieve the consistent level of high germination rates that you should be getting from our seeds, please trust our advice and follow our guidelines in the GERMINATION GUIDE. Customers who soak their Mandala seeds in water or wet paper tissue do so at their own risk. We are not accountable for any failure in germination or complications caused by this method. If you have any issues regarding germination please read our Germination Troubleshooting Guide carefully before contacting us.
Please read our Germination Guide before germinating your Mandala seeds. Due to the high quality and fresh stock of our seeds we advise against soaking the seeds in water or germinating in paper tissue. >> READ MORE

400-450 gr/m2; 800-1000 gr. per plant outdoor in the ground.
This is a fragrant, uplifting sativa that delivers quality harvests indoor & outdoor. Special attention was devoted to making this variety a low-maintenance plant that finishes by mid-October in northern climates. Flowering sets in quickly with most plants sexing within one week of switching to 12/12. Another positive feature is the fast and profuse resin production during early flowering that rewards your efforts right from the start. 8 Miles High has proven to be very reliable under various environmental stress factors such as abrupt changes in light and temperature. Plants can therefore be moved from indoor and planted out with no adverse effects. This strain is easy to grow and has no special requirements. It has shown good mould resistance and grows well in soil with no extra feeding*, making it a good choice for growers with little experience or not much time on their hands.
The indica-type females have minimum branching, medium tall growth, and are excellent for small spaces or cultivation in close rows. The sativa-leaning pheno can be grown as a multi-stem plant or trained if this is your preferred method of cultivation. It has longer branching due to the extended internodes and exhibits great potential as a big producer outdoor. For a sea of green set-up in hydro both phenotypes can be used. In hydroponics we recommend pruning the bottom branches on the sativa-leaning females so that all energy is focused on the long central cola.
8 Miles High has a great calyx-to-leaf ratio and slim leaves that make trimming the buds a quick job. Resiny bud production throughout the plant from top to bottom guarantees a quality harvest. The aromatic properties of this strain are delightfully diverse and feature the rare trait of strawberry fragrance. During flowering a slight brush against the plants releases a wonderful sweetness with an earthy undertone. This delicate aroma is followed by the more dominant piney freshness. As the plants mature you can also detect whiffs of a sweet lemonade scent or almond-tangerine. Cured buds may retain the piney-minty smell but, in addition, there is a variety of delicious aromas ranging from strawberry, melon, apple-cinnamon, to hash-candy.
The smoke has a fresh minty taste and lingering sweetness to it. 8 Miles High lifts off straight to the head and triggers a lot of cerebral activity with flashes of insights and long episodes of trippy visuals when you close your eyes and switch to auto pilot. This is a functional daytime smoke, or a wake-up call to keep you on your feet partying at night. The uplifting, almost euphoric, effect sets in once you reach maximum altitude. This energetic sativa glides back down smoothly and leaves an expansive feeling behind.

A Tribute To The Flower Children And Their Musical Heritage
The song “Eight Miles High” was written by the legendary Byrds as they were flying to London totally stoned and spaced out. The Byrds became part of the movement of psychedelic rock. Their rapidly changing avantgarde style birthed several musical trends from folk-rock, space-rock, psychedelic-rock to country-rock, reflecting the awesome metamorphosis the counterculture in the 1960’s was undergoing. Roger McGuinn’s 12-string solo in Eight Miles High is a milestone in rock history and has elements of both John Coltrane’s modal jazz innovations and the drone of an Indian raga; a tonal adventure that foresaw the trend of fusion and world music two decades later. David Crosby left the band in 1968 and became part of the famed Crosby, Stills and Nash group, which wrote it’s own transformative chapter in music history. With this humble tribute we wish to express our thanks to all Flower Children for their courage to explore new frontiers of consciousness and for their far-out music that continues to touch our hearts.
The Byrds Singer/guitarists: Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Gene Clark, bassist: Chris Hillman, drummer: Michael Clarke.
