Overview(top)

The best known strain in our catalogue, it is also one of the strongest and very typical sativa.
It is the result of crossing the 2 best clones of our Mother Plants, a sativa with an indica. Moby Dick is our most psychoactive strain with a concentration of up to 21% THC and the presence of THCV, a substance present in equatorial sativas produced in response to the sun’s ultraviolet rays; this substance makes the effect of the THC stronger, to the point that the effect can be felt after just 2 or 3 puffs. The low CBO concentration helps to make the effect psychoactively intense and lasting; it speeds you up both physically and mentally and the come down is long, slightly physical and noticeable.
It produces great hunger and thirst, and it is advisable to eat and drink well, to counteract its effects. Due to this increase in appetite, it is recommended to treat the secondary effects of chemotherapy and anorexia. There are 2 main phenotypes for this cross, a dominant sativa which is present in 65% of the plants approximately, and the rest, that are usually smaller and faster.
The sativa phenotype has a wood, pine, incense aroma, and the indica type is sweeter.
To develop this strain to its full potential, it needs a lot of light, up to 800 watts per square metre and a very high E.C between 1.5 and 2.00 as this strain needs more feeding than most of the strains.
It is highly recommended to control the pH as well, making sure it does not exceed 6.5 otherwise it could demonstrate symptoms of iron deficiency in the form of progressive yellowing of the inter-venal spaces on the leaves and wrinkling on the tips of the leaflets. This defiCiency does not really affect the plant’s health but it could restrict the harvest if it is really serious.
Outdoors, full sun, plentiful soil and water and widely spacing the trees 3 m apart will ensure trees which grow to 3 m tall and a harvest of up to 1500 grams in optimal conditions. The flowering period is quite fast indoors (60/70 days), 15th October outdoors with good mould resistance inherited from the sativa parent plant.

Strain History(top)

In 2005 Dinafem seeds introduced Moby Dick into the seeds market and it immediately gained praise among the growers that grew it. Back then it was the first time really that a Spanish feminised seed surprised everyone and convinced them that Holland was not the only reference in regards to quality cannabis seeds. It was a first class strain, vigorous, productive and very strong with much better genetics than many of those available a few years ago. The years have passed and it has become the most well-known variety in the Dinafem catalogue. Over the past few years some growers have been pleading for another Moby Dick. Although not really knowing what they would change in this strain, the general consensus was that the new Moby Dick seeds should be more productive. The strength and vigour of this plant were not its strongest points.
Crossing a JYD Haze mother plant with a highly productive Northern Lights indica mother plant Dinafem have managed to keep the sativa character of flavour and strength but managed to increase productivity at the same time whilst keeping that same strength and identical flowering period.
The increase in productivity is hugely noticeable in warm climates – as the sun is the principle factor which marks the difference and in indoor cultivation, where the plants are always intensely fed and well lit. In cooler climates, an increase in productivity is also obtained with noticeably heavier buds.
As with the original Moby Dick plants if we want to take advantage of this variety’s yield, it should have all the fertilizer it requires, as well as plenty of light – about 800w per m2 is ideal or it should be placed in a sunny area in summer. Equally important is to make sure it gets lots of feed/nutrients with special care given to levels of iron, magnesium and zinc.

Moby Dick Feminised is the strain which sealed the reputation of Dinafem Seeds. This sativa dominant hybrid cross of Haze and White Widow delivers in excess of 22% THC coupled with high levels of psychoactive THCV present in equatorial Sativa Strains. The low CBD in Moby Dick accentuates and prolongs the intense high and it has been reported that the hunger and thirst that this strain can generate have proved very useful to those suffering with chemotherapy and anorexia.
Moby Dick loves both high light intensity and a high nutrient regime. Outdoors Dinafem recommend at least three meters between plants as these mould resistant plants can develop into monsters in the right conditions. About 2 in 3 plants will be the heavily sativa phenotype with longer flowering with the remaining third being slightly more indica with a faster flowering sequence. Expect a woody taste, pine aroma with the more indica inclined plants being noticeably sweeter.

The most famous of our catalog, is also the most powerful and most sativa. It is the result of crossing the 2 best clones of our bank mothers, and the other a sativa indica. The Moby Dick is the most psychoactive plant that we produce so far, with a concentration of THC up to 21% and presence of THCV, a compound derived from equatorial sativa and that occurs in response to solar ultraviolet rays, which enhances the effect of THC to the point that with 2 or 3 puffs, and the effect is powerful. The low concentration of CBD aid to the effect that, in addition to cerebral and intense psychoactive, is very durable; acelerón produces physical and mental, and the downhill is long, slightly physical, and remarkable. It produces much appetite, dry mouth and so far, so you want to eat and drink well to counter its effects. For that same reason, increased appetite, it is very suitable to treat the side effects of chemotherapy, or for anorexia. There are two phenotypes at this junction, which tends to be a dominant sativa, with 65% of the plants, and the rest who tend to be faster and smaller. In the FeNo sativa dominates the scent of pine wood and with notes of incense, and the FeNo Indica is sweeter and less sativa.

Moby Dick is the most famous strain from Dinafem. It's also one of their most powerful and most typical sativa. Moby Dick is the result of crossing the 2 finest clones of Dinafem's Mother Plants, a sativa with an indica.
Moby Dick is Dinafem's most psychoactive strain with a concentration of up to 21% THC and the appearance of THCV, a compound present in equatorial sativa's produced in response to the ultraviolet sun rays; this substance makes the impact of the THC more powerful, to the point that the effect can be experienced after just two or three puffs. The low CBD concentration helps to make the effect psychoactively intense and long lasting; it speeds you up both mentally and physically and the come down is extensive, a little physical and apparent. It produces great food cravings and thirst, and it is advisable to eat and drink well, to deal with its effects.
There are two primary phenotypes for this cross, a dominant sativa which is found in 65% of the plants approximately, and the rest, that are commonly more compact and quicker. The sativa phenotype has a wood, pine, incense fragrance, and the indica variety is sweeter. To develop this particular strain to its full potential, it requires large amounts of light, up to 800 watts per square metre and a very high E.C between 1.5 and 2.00 because this strain needs more feeding than the majority of the strains. It is highly recommended to control the pH as well, making sure it does not go beyond 6.5 otherwise it could show symptoms of iron deficiency in the form of gradual yellowing of the intervenal spaces on the leaves and wrinkling on the tips of the leaflets. This deficiency doesn't actually affect the plant’s health but it might limit the crop if it is really serious.
