There are a couple of meanings behind American Dream’s name, starting with the obvious link to growing - honest toil, personal improvement, enjoying the fruits of one’s labour.
Some people involved in developing this strain also recall an offhand remark that the aims of the breeder are very well summed up by the idea of the American Dream. When working for long periods with a cherished group of plants, the hope is that each new generation can be even more prosperous than its parents and reach new heights of success.
In cannabis breeding, success and prosperity can be measured in terms of potency, vigour, yield and reliability. Because Sensi Seeds is able to draw from a rich and varied gene-pool made up of hybrids and cultivars perfected over decades or centuries, combining this advantage with expert selection actually makes it possible to attain the Dream of continuous improvement.
By enhancing our elite Afghan-Skunk genotypes with a delicate blend of Jamaican and Hawaiian Sativas, Sensi has created American Dream, a strain which gives growers the best of both worlds - connoisseur quality and cash-cropper quantity.
American Dream produces avalanches of hard, fist-sized buds that bristle with spiky pistils and glisten with a slick coating of trichomes. This very special strain has a sparkling, silly stone-high and a pungent, earthy Skunk flavour that complements her fruity island notes.
Large yields are easy with intensive SOG-style cultivation or larger, multi-stem plants. In the greenhouse or outside in warm climates, American Dream can reach the size of a young fir tree, with staggering harvests of bud that can bend even her sturdy Skunk frame.
A third meaning of her name may become clear when admiring American Dream in full bloom – the frosted, fragrant, weighty plants of this variety are an excellent symbol of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
