About Stinky Pete
Stinky Pete is an unusually hard strain to track down information on. Some suggest that Otis Gardens created the strain when they crossbred OG Kush, Snowtracks, and Vortex. Others have found Stinky Pete to be the offspring of an ambitious crossbreeding of the ever-popular White Widow with Original Jamaican. Regardless of which set of parents are noted, the two Stinky Petes are likely the same bud and someone is confusing some parent strains somewhere in the lineage. They are likely the same bud because they are described the same by those who smoke it, despite claiming it has vastly different parents.
Although its name would suggest a pungent strain of cannabis, Stinky Pete is actually one of the sweetest-smelling strains on the market today. Users have noted that its smell is actually pleasant, unlike most strains which end up making the room smell of diesel and terps. The terpene profile in Stinky Pete has been noted as being incredibly tasty when vaped and smoked.
Stinky Pete plants typically grow short, a nod to its Indica lineage, only growing up to 5 feet tall. An easy strain to grow, most users choose this strain because its smell is discrete and not likely to rouse unwanted suspicion and attention from neighbors. Stinky Pete nuggets are often dense, tightly packed dark green/purple buds encompassed by thick, hairy orange pistils and an even thicker layer of trichomes. One of the most notable aspects of Stinky Pete is that the nugs tend to emit a smell of mint that becomes much more vibrant and overpowering as the nugs are broken apart or ground up.
Because there is so much confusion on the internet about which strain of cannabis is the true Stinky Pete, there are few to no lab tests available for the strain. Some report THC counts as high as 23%, and others as low as 10%. Regardless, Stinky Pete is popular among those who are looking to relax.
Stinky Pete is best used in the early mornings when waking up or right before bed. This is because users often feel their stress and anxiety melt away with the first hit. A relaxing, tingling sensation washes over your body and mind with every pull from your bong or hit off a joint. It is likely to make you feel not only energetic and creative, but ready to tackle your day’s worth of plans. Stinky Pete is used by many to treat anxiety/depression in addition to chronic pain and stress. Stinky Pete is also noted by some to cause the munchies, which makes it great for those that suffer from nausea and appetite loss.
I'm Rob, the founder of Otis Gardens and I bred Stinky Pete. It is wonderful to find these nice reviews so many years later. Stinky Pete is 1/2 Snowtracks, 1/4 Vortex, 1/8 Dynamite, 1/8 OGKkush Snowtracks and I won the 2010 OGF Harvest Fest in Oregon when I was a medical marijuana grower and patient. Snowtracks is probably extinct because she was unstable and tended to herm out late in bloom. My Beloved Snowtracks was a legendary one hit wonder that had an indescribable smell that was like catnip for people. Like your first girlfriend and you can't stop smelling your finger, hahaha. I crossed her to preserve her and hopefully improve her stability. That is where the mind expanding trippy effects originate. Snowtracks was a mind warping strain with an aphrodisiac effect. RIP Snowtracks. People called you The Truth. Both the sedative effects and pinene smell twist come from the OG kush and partially, Snowtracks. Can't tell you much about Dynamite. Maybe that's where the very unexpected cheese smell originated. These seeds all came to me through clubs affiliated with the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program between 2009 and 2011. Vortex is a wonderful terpinoline smelling strain that has a sativa amped up effect. Vortex was a strain bred by SubCool who now has a seed company. There was a rumor that Vortex is closely related to another mysterious strain called God's Pussy. It is one of my favorite smelling strains. It can be riveting. SubCool sent me the vortex seeds as a gift after the charity I did as Otishertz at my Bud Bomb pot giveaway events where I gave away hundreds and hundreds of little blue jars filled with snowtracks and other strains to cardholders just for the asking. I grew it all in my kitchen in an apartment on Nw 23rd in Portland. It was no ordinary kitchen. I had room for 4000 watts and an old unused chimney with a perfect 8 inch hole to vent out. There was no water bill there and power was included in rent. Don’t tell anyone. Hehehe. That work became Otis Gardens. This strain is named after Pete Bergeman, a carpenter and friend who died while fishing, doing what he loved the most. Pete did a lot for Otis Gardens and left his mark by building many custom work areas in the garden. He was our guy when we needed to build something. He ran a tight crew and was well liked. He had a nick name for everyone. One of his crew wrote “Stink Pete” in large letters on a scrap of plywood that ended up accidentally, or intentionally, as a permanent part of the exterior wall on one of our bloom rooms. He didn't actually stink. It was more of a stink eye thing. When we popped some of my old seeds we discovered this weird 9 bladed plant (and sometimes 11) that was large, powerful, and smelly we were wondering what to call it. Pete died about the same time this strain was born. We had a rule about not smoking SP at work (medical days). It's that strong. Another weird thing about this plant it that it will sometimes sprout a bud in the middle of a fan leaf. I've never seen that in any other plant. Truly bizarre. I hope this clears up some misconceptions about the lineage. It is available at Otis Gardens in Hood River, OR and about 40 dispensaries in Oregon. Apparently there are some clones out there. I was always pretty free about giving aweay clones. They probably came from Gorge Greenery in Hood River. Thank you so much for enjoying my work.
