A winning showpiece
This feminised marijuana seed has an enviable list of awards, and with good reason. We’re talking about the best indica seed on the market with therapeutic possibilities, beyond which there’s an authentic delicatessen for smokers with some experience. Its cultivation requires little attention and the result is extremely enjoyable. Mataró Blue is a hybrid indica with three variants crossed in a winning and particularly beautiful combination.
Its name bears the Catalan city of its origin (where we at Kannabia Seed Company shine a light on it) and the blue colour that its flowers acquire when the end of summer approaches and it’s subjected to a lower temperature.
As stated, it’s a hybridisation of Black Domina with Blue Monster and a pure Afghan from the north of the country – Mazar-i-Sharif, where the mythical Milk of Mazar is produced. The first gives it a consistent branched structure, the second gives it a very productive character and a bluish hue, and the third gives it that unmistakable pure caramel resin. To all of this, we must add Mataró Blue’s own qualities, which none of our other feminised seeds possess.
We’ll obtain particularly powerful gear (23% THC is not for novices) with a strong kaleidoscopic aroma (orange, berries, sandalwood), and which prompts a jubilant and exciting feeling.
How to: Mataró Blue
We can see that Mataró Blue tends to form flowers in vertical clusters after the vegetative stage, with strong cuttings that are suitable for cloning. It’s a marijuana seed that gives rise to robust, resistant plants that won’t pose problems with unwanted attacks or nutrition (enhance its flavour with carbohydrates; use fertilisers without worrying).
It works especially well outdoors (a virtue that also earned it a prize at the Axarquia cannabis Cup), reaching two metres without too much difficulty. It produces a large central bud and its huge, dark leaves form bushes that really need space around them. This expansiveness may make it necessary to use guides or a SCROG when it comes to supporting the weight of the buds. It’s also suitable for indoors although we recommend the use of a powerful light.
Its flowering takes place between 58 and 62 days, and it can produce 800 grams per plant in optimal conditions. Indoors we could obtain 600 grams per square metre with plants one metre in height. Before the harvest arrives at the beginning of September, its smell is intense and penetrating.
Mataró Blue from Kannabia Seed Company is especially valued for the quality of its resin (thanks to its Afghan parent, Mazar-i-Sharif), which can be cold-extracted or using the Rosin technique and produces top-quality material.
We would like to remind you of its extremely important therapeutic qualities, which have earned it awards such as “Medical Indica” at the TreatingYourself Expo in Toronto.
Taste and effect of Mataró Blue
The effect of this marijuana seed’s buds is very special. Powerful, inspiring and even stimulating in small doses, it’s more calming and relaxing in larger samples. It’s a reaction that comes and goes and provokes a deep, pleasant joy.
Given its high levels of THC, you have to be prepared for its effects. If you’re looking for something smoother, you should consider other marijuana seeds.
There’s a whole world of nuances in its taste: distinctly bitter orange but also fruits of the forest and jasmine. Fruity in any case, with a background of incense that provides a great deal of atmosphere.
And although we’ve previously mentioned it, the fact that it’s a beautiful plant is worth emphasising.
