Looking at the names of the parents one could think The Flav came from outer space. TGA Subcool pollinated a female Romulan with Space Queen and therewith created a really tasty Sativa/Indica crossbreed with a very vigorous growth and high yields. The Flav adapts well to any growing method, but she is very demanding in regards to space - she needs plenty of it to spread her arms.
TGA Subcool - The Flav: Produces high yields within only 8 weeks
Looking at the ancestry of The Flav one could come to the conclusion it came from outer space. TGA Subcool took the famed but hard to obtain Romulan (and luckily he also obtained permission to breed with her) and pollinated her with a Space Queen, resulting in a strain with a very vigorous growth and heavy buds.
The Flav is suited for both indoor and outdoor cultivation and adapts well to any growing method, but she is very demanding in regards to space - she needs plenty of it to spread her arms and she exhibits an unusual strong stretch for an Indica dominated strain. Most phenotypes tend to look like the Romulan; no miracle because the Indica share in the genetic mix is 60%. In a small grow-room you need to prune the top and lateral branches or she will simply break the frame and burst through the roof. As a rule of thumb, after sending her into the flowering phase expect her to triple her height until she is ready for harvesting.
The Flav develops large, rocket-shaped, very dense and resin-laden buds growing so heavy you will need to support the branches after 6 weeks of flowering. Two weeks later it is time to bring in the exotic and fruity smelling harvest. The Flav is a very good yielder and experts reported harvests of 120-140g per plant.
The smoke of the properly cured end product is a feast for the taste buds and easy on the lung although it does expand. The flavor can be described as a cool menthol fruity taste with a touch of pine and lemon that turns musky, spicy and oily on the exhale. In a blunt you can taste a bit of a cherry flavor. The menthol coolness is brought out more when using a vaporizer and is very gentle on the lungs.
Directly after smoking you will very likely not feel any significant effect, but after a few minutes you will realize you are blankly staring off into space without really focusing anything and your mouth corners start traveling in the direction of your ears. Despite the Indica dominance it is a great daytime smoke as it does not leave you tired even if you smoke several bowl or blunts in a row. The main benefits of this great weed are the calming effect, the pain relief and a feeling of euphoria. The only downside (if it is a downside - patients with a lack of appetite will appreciate this side-effect) is that you will have a bad case of the munchies - your stomach will start grumbling for food.
