While the term “chronic” is used by many smokers to describe high-quality cannabis, the Chronic cultivar has been a legendary strain for quite some time.
Chronic is a hybrid from Dutch seed bank Serious Seeds, which created the strain in 1994 by blending Skunk #1 with Northern Lights. Later, in the early 2000s, the seed bank crossed a hybrid of Skunk #1 and Northern Lights with a hybrid of Northern Lights and AK-47 hybrid to produce what exists today. Seed bank owner/breeder Simon said he added AK-47 to the equation to upgrade the strain’s genetics and give it a “complex, full-spectrum high without losing the nice yield and flavor.” Serious Seeds carries both regular and feminized Chronic seeds.
Chronic won seven cannabis awards, including:
3rd prize at High Times Cannabis Cup in 1994
1st at La Bella Flor Cup Spain in 2003
1st at Highlife Cup Spain in 2004.
