True G13 Strain, or Government Indica Strain 13, is a pure Indica strain that appeared sometime in the 70s or 80s. After years of crossbreeding, however, the current G-13s generally found in dispensaries are unlikely to be pure Indica. Today’s G-13 strains are typically 70% Indica and 30% Sativa
G13, also known as “G-13” and “G Thirteen,” is a potent indica marijuana strain and is the subject of many urban legends. According to some accounts, the CIA, FBI, and other agencies gathered the best strains of marijuana from breeders all over the world.
Tips for growing G13 cannabis
The G13 indica is supposedly a strain that was taken from a U.S. government research facility — though, considering other images we have seen of government-produced cannabis, this is probably a fallacy. The euphoria produced by G13 is regarded as pleasurable and manageable in social settings, with a sweet earthy flavor that could be enjoyed any time of day.
Grow techniques: Grow hydroponically in a SOG (sea of green) setup to develop huge buds. Give space between the branches to allow the buds room to bulk up while keeping plenty of airflow between plants.
Flowering time: 9 weeks
Grow difficulty: Moderate
Climate: Can handle lower temperatures, but ideally keep this strain between 65 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
Indoor/outdoor: Performs well indoors or out. G13 can handle colder fall temperatures better than most cannabis plants. Growing outdoors is a great option for those seeking large, quality yields.
Feeding: Feed G13 heavily, as it needs plenty of nutrients to pack on its gigantic buds.
