Mr. Nice is named after one of the most prominent cannabis smugglers of the 1970s. A cross between G-13 and Hash Plant, there’s no better herb to pay respects to the late activist and author.
Mr. Nice is a strain with a story. It’s named after Howard Marks, a Welsh cannabis smuggler active in the 1970s and 1980s. At his height, Marks smuggled shipments as high as 30 tons of marijuana and hashish. He was finally caught and extradited to the United States where he underwent trial. He was imprisoned for 7 years.
After release, he published his best-selling autobiography, Mr. Nice. He continued to be outspoken about cannabis and became one of the most well-known activists around. To pay respects to Marks, breeders at Sensi Seeds decided to name a strain in his honor. Mr. Nice the strain was born.
Mr. Nice was cut from G-13, which has a mysterious story of its own. The herb is thought to be an escapee from a government cannabis breeding operation. So, as a G-13 offspring, Mr. Nice the strain is very fitting to Mark’s situation. To develop some seeds that showcase the best G-13 characteristics, Sensi Seeds crossed the legendary strain with Hash Plant. Hash Plant is another powerful indica with strong sedative effects.
