A Letter From Our Founder Twenty two years ago, driven by my passion for the positivity the plant can bring to the universe, I planted my first ganja seeds right here in Vermont… After a decade of honing my skills in breeding, growing, and selling in the northeast, I headed to the capital of cannabis … Continued
A Rebel Grown History of The Emerald Cup
Ever since I was a young teenager, I’ve been unusually intrigued with cannabis. From the first joint I smoked in the alleyway behind the old neighborhood hardware store, it has created a distinct enthusiasm and new purpose for my life. Since that moment, I immediately wanted to learn everything I could about this mystical … Continued
How to Select Male Plants for Breeding & Seed Making
Try to plan your goals ahead of time when you’re breeding or making seeds. Visualize what you’re trying to accomplish and spend time with your plants, really getting to know them. Observation is key, as it builds experience, intuition, instinct, and understanding. The better you get to know your plants, the more they will tell you and the more you will learn and understand.

The Importance of Diversity in Feeding & Fertilizing Cannabis
By diversifying your approach to feeding and plant nutrition you will see your plants respond to the advantages you’re providing them with. We all want to increase our quality and production while remaining cost and labor efficient. This is a great way to do it. Your patients, friends, family, buyers, lungs, taste buds, and brain will thank you.
From a Counterculture Past to a Better Future

A Growing Obsession
I’m here to share my experiences and evolution with cannabis as a cultivator, breeder, consultant, and educator. I hope my articles inspire growers to always improve their methods, efficiency, and quality and to have a better understanding of cannabis.
Featured Strain: Headband OG Sour
This backcross is one of our personal favorites. Our choice OG Sour male was a perfect match for the famous Headband clone. It’s a pleasure to grow, as this cross is more vigorous and high-yielding in comparison to the original clone. The Headband clone takes about 11 weeks to finish properly, but these will finish a bit more rapidly due to the OG Sour.
Featured Strain: Girl Scout Cookies
This variety of GSC is “forum cut” crossed with a male created from our favorite female phenotype of our Double OG Sour line and a male Starfighter gifted to us from a friend and elite seed collector. The plant has an above average yield with extremely high-potency flowers that are dense, frosty, and resin-encrusted with colors that range from purple to light lime green.
Featured Strain: Rebel Haze
With long, thin spear-like flowers and lengthy flowering times, this sativa-dominant hybrid of Super Silver Haze has all of the traits traditionally found in an equatorial sativa plant. To improve upon this legendary strain, we’ve added a vigorous Sour Diesel genetic line which has increased the yield and given strength and size to the flowers, which have an intensely spicy lemon and menthol flavor that penetrates.
Rebel Grown @ The Emerald Cup
We’re stoked to be a part of the 2015 Emerald Cup and thrilled to announce our new line (including these flavorful bags of Rebel Sour). Keep an eye out for more announcements and new strains on the way.
