Moreover, the initial head high may cause small bouts of dizziness to take place. This may lead to rising levels of anxiety. As such, veterans and beginners alike should start with a low dosage to avoid these adversities to worsen.

Finally, it takes about 8 to 9 weeks of flowering time when taken indoors with a yield of 400 grams per square meter.
Meanwhile, outdoor cultivation would only require a semi-humid climate and should be ready for plucking by late September to early October. It produces an ever age yield of 300 grams per plant.
Moreover, other than its tantalizing aroma of berries, this strain continues the legacy of its Blueberry parent, known for its deeply relaxing quality that rolls from head-to-toe.
Like picking ripe berries from a wild bush, this bud permeates a balance of sweet and sour tones in its initial aroma. Notes of freshly-mown grass are thrown in the mix, bringing users closer to nature upon opening the bag. Rather than a saccharine impression though, it leans more on a pungent tang that adds maturity to the palate. Fittingly enough, its smoke swirls in the lungs as smooth as a titular glass of well-aged wine. As such, the velvety experience is truly intoxicating, enticing users to have another go.
It may not be as fiery or powerful as the Mother of Dragons from the popular series, Game of Thrones, but Mother of Berries is just as revered in the cannabis community as it liberates smokers from the confines of their stressful routine.
One of the few things it checks off is its natural resistance to common molds and mildews. As such, growers don’t need to worry too much about a little bit of cold as this little bud can put up a fight.
Liberating the cannabis community from the confines of their stressful routine, Mother of Berries is not just revered for its aroma, but for its relaxing, body-focused high to boot.
MOB is described as a short, compact plant that performs the miracle of producing its exquisite berrylike and highly resinous buds within a mere 42-55 days of flowering. Quickness and quality aren’t the plant’s only strengths, though; it’s got quantity too. Thanks to their handy size, robust branching and easy management, MOB plants are perfect for novice growers. And, very conveniently, their fat, hard buds possess good mold resistance as well.
However, the buds not only looked gorgeous, but they also fulfilled the promise of an exquisite berry fragrance that made the Doc rejoice: “Ahhh… These aromatic wafts of a fruity-sweet scent are a most enticing treat to my nose. You just have to inhale them deeply! The berry aroma is so smooth, so caressing to my nose, it makes me think of some fruity kind of perfume infused with different forest berries. The Mother of Berries has really lived up to its name here.”
As T.H. Seeds co-founder Doug explains, “In the mid- to late ’90s, a big bag of Cali weed ended up in Boston which had a few seeds—no one knew the strain name. This true bomb weed, apparently 100 percent indica, was originally called MOD, as these were the initials of the guy who grew it out, mothered it and got it going. But since it was getting too popular and they wanted to hide his identity, they changed the name to MOB. The crew that got it out there was the old Boston skateboarding community. The original guy gave a cutting to a friend of mine who brought it to me, and it was originally grown on my rooftop, flowering super-fast. Then we sent it down to Spain for further selection and feminized seed production.”
Two weeks after the light-cycle switch from 18/6-hour light/dark to 12/12, the four plants had already busily begun to bloom—“as fast as an express train,” reported the Doc. The MOB turned out to be the fastest of five varieties growing in his room. “Already at this early stage,” the Doc wrote in his grow diary after four weeks of flowering, “the four plants are looking impressive. Still very homogeneous and still that extraordinarily compact as stem elongation during flowering has been only moderate, with a height gain of merely 60-70 percent. It’s evident that all the buds—top and side colas alike—are about to become thick and chubby. I also love the fact that as early as now, they’re plentifully bestrewn with resin glands. Keep it coming, Mother of Berries!”
Concluded the Doc: “MOB has wowed me with its beautiful appearance, short flowering time and nevertheless high productivity. And its tremendous indica potency makes it a highly effective natural sleep-inducing drug. I’ve called it Sandman’s favorite indica—by means of this stuff, he’ll lull even the most severe insomniacs to sleep. And oh, the icing on the cake is MOB’s mouth-watering sweet berry flavor!”
Additionally, MOB’s pink to purple flower coloration brings variety into the usually green cannabis scenery. The typical MOB effect, fueled by a THC count of up to more than 20 percent, is a very strong indica stone providing deep relaxation, often followed by heavy sleepiness. That’s why this variety is praised and used by many as a very effective sleeping aid. Generally regarded as a strong medical strain, it’s also being successfully used to treat stress disorders and chronic pain conditions.
It’s time to report on a truly legendary strain known throughout North America as MOB (a.k.a. the Mother of Berries), bred and released by the renowned seed company T.H. Seeds. The origin story of this stalwart variety has never been revealed—until now.
The four MOB plants kept their fast flowering speed until the end and reached maturity after 46-52 days of flowering—well within the harvest window stated by T.H. Seeds. Said the Doc: “One of the four plants remained green, but the other three are displaying attractive purples hues, indeed, absolutely nice! Also, the buds have become as bulbous, dense and super-tight as expected. And they’ve put on a splendorous resin vestment lined with myriads of majestically glistening trichomes.”
The total dry yield tipped the scales at 273 grams, an average of 68 grams per plant. Compared with the yield level generally achieved by the Doc, the MOB wasn’t a smasher in absolute terms, but in view of the small plant sizes with final heights of 46, 49, 54 and 58 centimeters, the yield-to-size ratio was superior. After thorough drying and curing, the chlorophyll had vanished from the buds and their delicious berrylike nature had become even more pronounced and sophisticated—“a fine example of a fruity cannabis delicacy,” according to the Doc.
Some strains earn a name for themselves with potency, medicinal value, flavor and ease of growth.
