THC Bomb Seeds About Bomb Seeds. In the previous articles, we have presented some great breeds with lots of history and even intrigue behind them that rose to the Hall of Fame of the cannabis community. Bomb Seeds is a special case; it does not fall into that category but has something to do with all of the famous strains that we have presented in HTG. Bomb Seeds are more of a signature hybrid, that has been developed with one purpose in mind – higher THC levels and in that respect, the Bomb indeed delivers, with THC levels that surpass 20% in most cases. However, this shouldn't scare off first-timers; most of the time, strains that come from this hybrid are surprisingly balanced. The main story behind Bomb seeds is very simple: Dutch seed bank Bomb Seeds have dedicated a lot of time and effort into developing their own signature seeds Bomb#1, 2 and 3. Then, they proceeded into relentlessly crossing and back-crossing them with every successful phenotype in existence, creating some very interesting strains along the way. The results of this experimentation have earned them a very special place in the heart of growers all over the world and created some very interesting series of plants that we will see in more detail in the article below. Despite their secrecy regarding the genetics of their signature plants, Bomb Seeds have die-hard fans that swear by the company’s name and support its endeavors with a passion. #1. Atomic Bomb Sativa/Indica THC: 22-26% Yield: 15.8oz – 19.4oz Per M2 #2. Berry Bomb Sativa/Indica/Ruderalis THC: 15-20% Yield: 10.5oz – 12.4oz Per M2 #3.

Widow Bomb Sativa/Indica THC: 20-25% Yield: 16oz – 19oz Per M2 Bomb Seeds Lineage Usually, in our similar articles, there is a more or less set way of doing things: first, we present the strain, then share a little bit of history, then some biology and genetics and finally, the top ten variations of said strain. Although the final part of the process has –thankfully- remained unchanged, Bomb Seeds require a somewhat different approach. Specifically, what we are missing here, is the history and the genetics part of the strain. What Bomb Seeds have tried to do here is to gather and mix the best of the best, with their trademarked “Bomb Seeds” genetics, to maximize desirable traits, such as the size of the yield, potency, quality, flowering speed and hardiness. What they ended up with, is one of the most highly regarded and potent hybrid families ever developed, that comes in an unbelievable range of assortments. Whether you want an indica or sativa plant, a relaxing or energizing experience, there is surely a variation to suit even the most eclectic of needs, all within the Bomb family. Bomb Seeds have been there since it all started. They provide seeds that are all tested for quality and freshness, stored in a completely controlled environment. All of their strains have been grown in the Netherlands, crossing seeds that are hand-picked by the best growers in the business. With a seed library that large and with the experience of Bomb Seeds, there is no chance that your Bomb Seeds experience won’t be at least, satisfying. Bombs Away Since there is no origins story to speak of – Bomb Seeds remain very secretive about the lineage of their original strain and don’t reveal much: "Well quite simply, if you are looking for the best combination of Strength, Power, Quality and Yield; Bomb Seeds genetics are the best available. Our selection process of the best traits from already world beating strains, combined with our explosive Bomb genetics delivers time after time." Geographically, Bomb Seeds can be – inevitably – traced back to every continent and country that cannabis has been known to take root: From Brazil and Mexico to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Bomb Seeds have been mixed with possibly everything that they can be mixed. To a certain extent, secrecy is understandable among breeders. Especially in the Netherlands, breeding is a highly competitive market and growers work very hard in order to maintain an edge over the competition. However, their stance has been openly criticized in many forums, as they are the only seed bank to be absolutely silent about the lineage of their signature strain. Trying to figure out what the Bomb#1 and Bomb#2 are made out of is a challenge on its own. People have been trying to smell the answer out, attributing Skunk#1 origins to it, due to its earthy, skunky smell. People have also reported ending up with different phenotypes among the same batch, so there is really not a one-size-fits-all guide for this particular company. Their very existence is a mystery to the growing community, although the general consensus is very positive for the product itself. In the end, Bomb Seeds are judged by the quality that their product delivers and they indeed pass that test with flying colors. However, some background knowledge is always interesting, especially concerning strains that popular. Seed Spreads As we mentioned above, Bomb originals as Bomb#1 and Bomb#2 have been crossed with almost every succesful strain in the market, so there is a huge array of hybrid strains available in the market. We will note 10 of our favorites in the list below. Awards Although Bomb Seeds describe their THC Bomb strain as “award-winning”, we were not able to find information about this-- or any other-- awarded Bomb strains. If anyone has any piece of information, please share it in the comment section! Best Strains (feminized, auto flowering etc.) #1 Atomic Bomb With the ominous named Atomic Bomb, Bomb Seeds have done their usual job of taking high-quality cannabis genetics and crossing them with some of their own signature genetics. Here they have crossed a carefully chosen, original clone from the legendary Chem Dawg with a fine specimen of OG Kush, straight from the Emerald Triangle. As if that wasn’t good enough, they have then added some of their own THC Bomb genetics to add yield and vigor. The result of all this is Atomic marijuana, a very potent –and very delicious strain.Atomic gives off a strong and complex aroma; an unlikely feat within the Bomb family. You can expect bittersweet lemony fuel tones, undercut by hints of berry. However, it’s the hit that steals the show here: the Atomic Bomb is relentless and delivers an all-around balanced hit (that is more akin to a balanced punch in the face, depending on your tolerance). The effect is an emotional and physical rollercoaster, that will start with a jolt of rush that will make your heart race and finish with you probably eating any leftovers from the fridge. This is certainly not a strain for novices, although it is indeed, one hell of a ride! Strain: Indica/Sativa Auto Flower Seeds Available: No Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: 15.8oz – 19.4oz (450gm - 550gm) Per M2 Indoors Height Indoors: Medium Height Outdoors: Medium Flowering Period: 8-9 Weeks THC Level: 22-26% Grow Difficulty: Medium #2 Berry Bomb Auto Contrary to the THC Bomb, the Berry Bomb is one of the fruitiest hybrids of the company. Bomb Seeds have crossed Blueberry with their Bomb strain, creating a strain that is as tasty as it is potent. Berry Bomb is also exceptionally fast, with a growing time that will not exceed 70 days from seed. The auto version maintains the fat single kola structure and large internodal distances making it an ideal option for SCROG setups. The signature Bomb-y growth rate helps maximize yields, and you can expect to pull up to 300g/m² in optimum conditions. Thanks to its good looking heritage, Berry Bomb Auto will later turn blue/purple, making it a great choice, if anything, purely for aesthetics. THC production really kicks on in the last two weeks of flowering, with buds becoming super frosty. The signature sweet berry taste and aroma that Berry Bomb has become renowned for are ever present, with the stone offering just the right balance between indica body buzz and sativa head high. Strain: Indica/Sativa/Ruderalis Auto Flower Seeds Available: Yes Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: High (300-350g/m²) Height Indoors: Medium Height Outdoors: Medium Flowering Period: 70 days from seed THC Level: High (15-20%) Grow Difficulty: Easy #3 Big Bomb Big Bomb, along with the THC Bomb, are the company’s highest yielding strains. In order to create this strain, the company carefully crossed a dominant Big Bud mother with Bomb #1 to deliver a plant with massive yields and increased levels of THC, making Big Bomb an ideal plant for the entrepreneurs among you. The addition of Bomb #1 produces very high volume, rock hard buds. Outdoors the plant can produce in excess of 1.5kg (3lb+). Big Bomb is very easy to grow well and has very explosive growth potential. The smoke has a strong skunky smell with a long lasting, all round buzz and a classic skunk flavor. Fairly potent weed that will make your day go with a bang. Although you might feel perfectly functional, avoid driving or operating heavy machinery. Strain: Indica/Sativa Auto Flower Seeds Available: No Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: Very High (600-700g/M²) Height Indoors: Small Height Outdoors: Medium Flowering Period: 8 weeks THC Level: 10-15% Grow Difficulty: Easy #4 Cheese Bomb Somewhere on a wall in the Bomb Seeds grow rooms, there must be a huge motivational poster that says: “There is nothing that can’t be crossed with Bomb”. Cheese Bomb is yet another strain developed by the Dutchmen of Bomb Seeds. For this, they have taken an original Exodus Cheese clone from the UK and crossed it with some of their own Bomb genetics. Although the Cheese strain is well-known worldwide, the addition of Bomb #1 and Bomb #3 has increased its yield and enhanced potency. Speaking of Cheese, if you know anything about it, it is probably the fact that it is extremely smelly; a trait that has been passed onto the Bomb hybrid. So be extra cautious with your setup. Cheese Bomb stays quite compact if grown indoors. Yields are excellent and a bit of training can make them flourish. Its buds are juicy and sticky. The hit from Cheese Bomb is deep, potent and –as ever with the Bomb- complex. Namely, get ready to have your body locked down and your mind racing to the plains of the unknown, asking life’s real questions, like “what happens to us after death” or “why didn’t the eagles take the hobbit directly to Mordor”. Strain: Indica Dominant Auto Flower Seeds Available: No Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: 14oz – 19.4oz (400gm – 550gm) Per M2 Indoors. Height Indoors: Medium Height Outdoors: Tall Flowering Period: 6-8 Weeks THC Level: 10-15% Grow Difficulty: Easy #5 Cherry Bomb Auto Cherry Bomb Auto is a very resinous autoflowering strain with a full-blown cherry flavour. Bomb Seeds have crossed the original Cherry Bomb with a hand selected Siberian ruderalis allowing them to maintain the most desirable traits of the mother plant, without losing the catchy cherry flavor. Cherry bomb is also extremely easy to grow and it will be ready in around 70-75 days from seed. Cherry Bomb Auto is not a very big plant, reaching around 50-80cms in height. However, there’s more than meets the eye here, so don’t be deceived by its compact size:its yields are strong thanks to the dense bud structure and Cherry Bomb heritage and indoor growers can easily expect 350-450 g/m2. Outdoors plants will produce even more providing they get sufficient light, with harvest coming from May – October. Later in the flowering process and given the right conditions buds will develop a blue / purple hue as the buds become coated in THC. All of the characteristic flavour and aromas are still present. Strain: Indica/Sativa/Ruderalis Auto Flower Seeds Available: Yes Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: Medium Height Indoors: Medium Height Outdoors: Medium Flowering Period: 70-75 days from seed THC Level: High (17-20%) Grow Difficulty: Easy #6 Cluster Bomb Next in out “Bomb” gallery, is the Cluster Bomb, a strain known for its phenomenal yields, that is the result of crossing their very own Bomb #1 with a Cinderella 99 and an original Skunk #1 from Sensi. Cluster Bomb forms a typical indica structure: short, dense and sturdy. Cluster Bomb plants are ideal for SCROG setups and the multiple tops can result in multiplied yields. Patient and experienced growers will be further rewarded with crops of over 20 ounces per meter squared. When smoked, Cluster Bomb has a rich Skunky aroma that is accompanied by hints of citrus and berries. The hit is an intense hybrid kick that is a heavenly mix of cerebral stimulus and muscle relaxation. Strain: Indica/Sativa Auto Flower Seeds Available: No Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: 24oz – 28oz (700gm – 800gm) Per M2 Indoor Height Indoors: Medium Height Outdoors: Tall Flowering Period: 7-9 Weeks THC Level: 15-20% Grow Difficulty: Easy #7 Ice Bomb The “Great White Bomb”, Ice was born whenBomb Seeds combined Vanilla Kush with the hard-hitting White Rhino. Once happy with the result they then crossed this with their own Bomb #1. The result is a white beauty, that carries with it all of the Bomb Seeds’ desirable traits . Ice Bomb is an Indica dominant plant and it sure grows like it. It will stay short and bushy with lots of side branching. Enhancing this with multiple topping and/or scrogging can really help bump up the yield. Ice bomb works well in SCOG set ups too and will deliver very satisfying harvests. Due to its indica heritage, Ice Bomb is very forgiving to mistakes and is, therefore, a great choice for beginners. Its hardiness and mold resistance also makes it a great outdoor grow. In colder climates, Ice Bomb may even develop a very attractive purple sheen to her leaves and flowers. The buds on Ice Bomb are very dense and resinous, heavily sprinkled with shiny crystals. Side branches can be very productive as well as the main kola.When smoked, Ice Bomb has a sweet flavor that is chocolaty with hints of vanilla. The hit is smooth, and very very relaxing, due to the indica lineage. Strain: Indica Dominant Auto Flower Seeds Available: No Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: 17oz – 21oz (500gm – 600gm) Per M2 Indoors Height Indoors: Medium Height Outdoors: Medium Flowering Period: 7-9 Weeks THC Level: 17-22% Grow Difficulty: Easy #8 Kush Bomb To develop Kush Bomb, Bomb Seeds have taken a specimen OG Kush from SoCal and crossed it with their high yielding Big Bomb. The result is an exemplary Kush strain that is also an amazing yielder. Kush Bomb is an easy strain to grow. Long side branches lend themselves very well to SCROG systems which can return 21 ounces and more per square meter. Kush Bomb belongs on the tastier side of the Bomb strains: there are noticeable citrus twists in the taste, which are particularly highlighted when using a vaporizer. Like most Bombs, this one also carries the trademark “rollercoaster” effects of its cousins: what starts as an energetic high, will gradually decline to a dazed and confused, couch-locking engagement. Strain: Indica/Sativa Auto Flower Seeds Available: No Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: 21oz – 25oz (600gm – 700gm) Per M2 Indoors Height Indoors: Medium Height Outdoors: Medium Flowering Period: 7-9Weeks THC Level: 20-25% Grow Difficulty: Easy #9 THC Bomb Seeds Auto THC Bomb is among the best-known Bomb varieties and its Autoflowering version carries with it all the attributes that made it famous in the first place. This is a product of an internal crossing between two house specials, the THC Bomb and the Auto Bomb. The resulting plant is a very fast grower that provides growers with a very high yield. Its buds are big and very resinous, so saying that the yield is high would definitely be an understatement. In addition, it is a very easy plant to grow indoors, making it an excellent choice for beginners. In terms of smokeability, you will enjoy a cerebral high, that will gradually relax you and lock you down on the couch. The taste is pretty much default, so don’t expect any fancy fruitiness! Strain: Indica/Sativa/Ruderalis Auto Flower Seeds Available: Yes Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: Very High (400-450g/m) Height Indoors: Short Height Outdoors: Medium Flowering Period: 65 days from seed THC Level: 18-22% Grow Difficulty: Easy #10 Widow Bomb White Widow is one of the best strains in the history of cannabis. What happens when someone tries to mess around with something that is already close to perfection? White Bomb marijuana is the result of an attempt by Bomb Seeds to improve on the multi-awarded White Widow strain. The stakes were definitely high for Bomb Seeds: in order to create this, they have crossed and back crossed their Bomb #1 genetics with a carefully selected White Widow line. The result was a strain that has everything that made the White Widow a household name, plus the usual Bomb potency that you know and love (or hate). The buds on this plantare more dense and heavier than White Widow, although they still carry the heavy frosting of snowy crystals that gives the white strains their name. Apart from its potency and plentiful yield, Widow Bomb is a joy to grow: its compressed structure is easy to keep under control and it will thrive in a variety of environments. Also, with a finishing time of around 9 weeks you don’t need to wait too long for it to give you its flowers. Whether this is a better strain than the original Widow, is for you to decide. We say, give it a go! Strain: Indica/Sativa Auto Flower Seeds Available: No Feminized Seeds Available: Yes Yield: 16oz – 19oz (450gm – 550gm) Per M2 Indoors. Height Indoors: Medium Height Outdoors: Medium Flowering Period: 8-10 Weeks THC Level: 20-25% Grow Difficulty: Easy What’s Next There is no easy way to predict what the future will bring for a company so unpredictable. If I had to make a guess, I would say that breeders at Bomb Seeds are going to continue crossing, back-crossing, mixing and then crossing again whichever strain deem suitable. They have proved they can do so multiple times, so why not continue down the same, successful path that they paved with all their hard work? Sure, they could be a little bit more open with their strain’s heritage, but that’s one for the cannabis historians to determine in the future. Bomb Seeds is a relatively young company and the future looks bright for them and their magnificently grown hybrids!
