breeder tip:

When growing feminized seed, it is best to flower the initial variant from clone as opposed to directly from seed. Stability will increase dramatically throughout the phenotypes. 

Genetic threads exclusive interview

Cannardo started his growing endeavors around 1994-1995 when he popped some Purple Kush bag seed he found in some really nice flowers. Immediately,y he was intrigued by the breeding process, how seeds were made, as well as what may come from the progeny. Rado made his first crosses in the late 90's with some seeds brought back from Amsterdam by a friend. He pollinated some of the elite cuts going around Colorado at the time like Cough and Black Domina with a Shiva Shanti male. After working filial and back cross lines for a while he found his niche in feminized seeds. He has crafted some of the most popular strains in today's market like Sundae Driver and Strawberry Shortcake. By filling the gap in the market and keeping up with current trends, Cannarado has become one of the premier feminized seed producers in the world.
