Mr Nice - Ortega: A pure indica that is easy to grow

Ortega by Mr. Nice is a mix of NL#1 and NL#5, making it a pure, thoroughbred indica. It is an old school strain that has roots back in the mid 80's, it is still popular today and is a classic that can be enjoyed by all levels of smokers and cultivators.

This strain has peppery aromas and fruity, berry tastes that will induce a potent sedative buzz – in both body and mind. It is ideal for relaxing when you do not have to get anything done. It has great couch-lock potential and will get you giggling away with friends before taking away all tension within your body. This makes it a powerful strain, ideal for those looking for some night time medical relief. Ortega is great for treating chronic pain, stress, anxiety and insomnia. There is something that every indica smoker will enjoy here and it is an exemplary strain to try if you have never really had any indica – there is great potential to use this strain as a go to, everyday smoke for unwinding after a hard day.

Ortega is a very easy strain to grow, it is well suited to both novice and veteran cultivators alike. Commercial cultivators will be happy with the yield to flowering time ratio – you get a lot of product for your time. The flowering period is roughly 42-56 days for optimal yields. It grows as you would expect a pure indica to, with a compact, Christmas tree structure ans stick, resin covered buds.

Ortega by Mr. Nice is suitable for indoor, outdoor and greenhouse cultivation. This strain will respond well to both hydro and bio methods of cultivation. You can expect a yield of roughly 500-750g/m2 for your time and effort – a very bountiful yield by most standards! This is a classic and one of Mr. Nice's recommended first steps into the Mr. Nice catalog – it is a must try.

Information about Mr. Nice

Mr. Nice Seeds

Mr Nice Seed Bank is one of the most respected seed banks in the world. Its founders are among the pioneers of cannabis breeding. You can find all their knowledge and passion in both the potent old school strains and the newly awarded hybrids.

In April 2016 Howard Marks, alias Mr. Nice, left this world. He was one of the first pioneers of today’s “regulated” cannabis business, and he left us with a rich inheritance of unique cannabis strains. After being imprisoned in the United States for smuggling, he founded in 1990 the Mr. Nice Seed Bank together with other two notorious breeders, Scott Blakey “Shantibaba” and Neville Schoenmaker. All cannabis strains bred by Mr Nice Seed Bank actually incorporate the talents and the huge wealth of experience of their breeders, resulting in a large amount of international awards.

Today, Mr. Nice Seed Bank still owns the original genetics which were saved from the Dutch authorities’ repression in 1995, and then saved again from the shutdown forced by a Swiss Prosecutor in 2003. Thanks to the actual owner Scott Blakey, the spirit and the smiles of his friend Mr. Nice still live today in both the old school and the new descendant strains. Preserving genetics and biodiversity has always been Shantibaba’s and Mr. Nice Seeds Bank’s philosophy, reflected in today’s precious cannabis seeds such as Lights 5, Super Silver Haze, White Widow, White Rhino and White Shark, to name a few.

Mr Nice Seed Bank produces all its seeds in its own controlled breeding research laboratories and has always interacted with the growers who work with its strains to help getting the most of them and increase the shared knowledge. Shantibaba is also committed in spreading information about medical cannabis genetics and cultivation techniques. His company is today involved in the CBD Crew project for the research on high-cannabidiol strains. Zamnesia offers you some excellent strains from the Mr. Nice Seed Bank which will all make you smile.

Awards Mr. Nice

Since the foundation of this company, original strains from Mr. Nice Seed Bank started to win the most important international awards. Year after year and all around the world, a lot of connoisseurs have recognised in these breeders’ varieties all the traits that make exceptional cannabis. Here is a selection of all the Mr. Nice Seed Bank strains that won a prize at cannabis contests.


Critical Mass (Mr. Nice)


  • 2008, Copa Highlife BCN 2008 - Yervagüena for Critical Mass
  • 2008, Highlife Planta del año 2008 - Mr Nice Seeds for Critical Mass
  • 2008, Copa de la Marihuana de Madrid, 2nd prize
  • 2007, Marijo Taxpalketa, 2nd prize outdoor
  • 2006, Copa de la Marihuana de Madrid, 3rd prize

A robust cross between an ancient Afghani and the notorious Skunk #1 gave birth to an excellent version of an old breed. This is a high yield strain for commercial farmers and outdoor crops. The heavy Afghani pedigree makes you expect a yield indoors around 650-750g/m² with a flowering time of 45/55 days. Outdoors you can harvest 500-600g of heavy flowers per plant. Critical Mass needs you to keep the humidity under control because her exceptionally compact flowers can attract mould. With this precaution she will greatly reward both the inexperienced and the professional grower. 


Dinafem AwardsBLACK WIDOW

Black Widow (Mr. Nice)


  • 1995, High Times Cannabis Cup

Mr. Nice’s Black Widow is a classic blend of two old school genetics. One is an original South Indian Indica and the other a native Brazilian sativa. This strain has a potential huge resin production which requires from 8 to 10 weeks of flowering indoors. Even amateur breeders can expect yields of 350-450g/m², and 300-400 g/plant outdoors.



Super Silver Haze (Mr. Nice)


  • 1997, High Times Cup, 1st prize Hydro Cup
  • 1998, Cannabis Cup, 1st prize Cannabis Cup
  • 1999, Cannabis Cup, 1st prize Cannabis Cup

This is a legendary crossing that’s still delighting connoisseurs. Breeders Neville and Shantibaba put together a family of 25% Skunk with 25% Northern lights, and 50% Haze. This strain might require an experienced grower to express all its genetic potential. When properly grown, Super Silver Haze results in a highly valued final product. Yields can surpass 450-550 g/m² indoor with 8-10 weeks of flowering, while 500g/plant outdoor are easily obtained.
