Dynamite, an award winning F4 back-cross of Grapefruit, is the work of the Next Generation Seed Company. To create this strain, they crossed Grapefruit, a strain from British Columbia's Asian community, with a strain of unknown origin. A male from that cross was then crossed again with a Grapefruit mother, making Dynamite mostly Indica. Winning first place in 2005 for best overall strain at the Oregon Medical Cannabis Awards, Dynamite can produce a strong but not overwhelming sedative effect, accompanied by an elevation in mood. It can be very effective as daytime medication for pain relief, nausea, and anxiety.
The strain can be grown indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse. Even beginner growers will get relatively good results. As it grows short and uniform, the strain can do very well in the Sea of Green method. Indoors, the strain needs between six and seven weeks to finish flowering. Outdoors, in the Northern hemisphere, it is ready for harvest in early October. Known for its heavy yields, when grown in the southern United States, this strain can produce up to one pound per plant.
