Desfrán feminized cannabis seeds highlights

  • Desfrán is a very special Sativa dominant photoperiod cannabis strain. She has a vigorous growth and flowering phase and ensures a high XXL yield.
  • This Sativa variety has gained an excellent reputation for her XXL yields and relatively short flowering time. The quality of the buds is very high and that is the reason that she has managed to win so many cannabis cups.
  • Desfrán has buds with a unique and pungent aroma and sweet fruity taste. Its fruity and sweet notes are reminiscent of apple, pear, honey and caramel. A very special combination that you must try!
  • It is a strain with an average flowering time of between 9-12 weeks and a very unique high. The effects are sociable, bright, creative and energetic. Definitely not a couch-lock strain!

Desfrán is a legendary South American variety that has won numerous cannabis cups. Desfrán is the result of a crossing of Destroyer with Destroyer, and was originally a three-way cross of Mexican Oaxaca, Colombian Punto Rojo and Meao Thai. Dutch Passion owes this variety to Alberto from Argentina, a master breeder and cannabis connoisseur and the owner of Haze magazine. With our first collaboration we wanted to introduce Desfrán in Europe.

She guarantees strong, fast-growing plants with a considerable stretch. Her buds (with foxtails) are very resinous and sticky. THC percentages are usually around 20%, but some phenotypes can be a bit above this. Desfrán is a pure Sativa and multiple cup winner. Alberto's original Destroyer genetics have won quite a few cups over the years.

Desfrán is a classic Sativa with a vigorous growth and flowering phase that grows long buds and is ideal for a SOG and SCROG. This jungle Sativa has a great stretch during the flowering phase and very potent THC rich buds

Desfrán is a fast growing Sativa dominant cannabis plant with long, slender leaves and a vigorous growth and flowering phase. Once the plants have germinated, they will fill your space in no time.

During her vegetative growth phase, Desfrán needs few nutrients. She grows especially well in soil with plenty of room for the root system and also thrives very well under other growing methods. Desfrán is a full-bodied Sativa, allowing her to grow very tall and develop long branches that can take up all available growing space very quickly.

During vegetative growth, the plant can give off an intense fruity aroma when the trunk is rubbed firmly. In the flowering phase, the plant stretches and can triple its height. Desfrán is a very resinous variety, suitable for SOG and SCROG growing methods and usually takes 9-10 weeks to flower.

However, longer flowering phenotypes can be found that take up to 12 weeks to fully mature. A second internode bloom (or even third) is not exceptional. If you are looking for the ideal plant for a SCROG grow, you should give our Desfrán a try. This lady creates new branches quickly and her thin leaf structure makes for a very pleasant SCROG experience. If you prefer a SOG, Desfrán is also a suitable choice.

Her large and long stretching period in bloom means you can quickly set the plants to 12/12. Even directly from seed this may be desirable. We usually recommend a minimum growth phase of 1 week on 18/6, but this also depends on the size of the pots and the number of plants per m2. In terms of structure, she resembles a real jungle Sativa.

Desfrán grows unusually dense and compact buds. When dried, the buds resemble glazed pine cones. The buds can be very sticky and potent. Most of the flowers are completely covered with a thick layer of trichomes. Most phenotypes have foxtails which also give the flowers the true classic Sativa appearance. With the right lighting and care, the buds will become quite compact. They are certainly not fluffy.

During the flowering phase, this Sativa stretches quite a bit, tripling in size is the rule rather than the exception. This large stretch makes her the ideal lady for a SCROG grow. This also allows shorter pre-growth periods. This also makes her a very suitable plant for a very fast SOG cultivation. Her internode spacing is medium, she has slender leaves and fingers and a very favorable flower-to-leaf ratio.

The genetics used for Desfrán guarantee the following properties:

  • A vigorous cannabis strain that grows rapidly during both the growth and flowering phases.
  • A Sativa with a great stretch during the flowering phase, these ladies typically stretch by 200-300% when the clock is set to 12/12.
  • The flowers are relatively compact for a Sativa and she takes on average around 10-11 weeks to be ready for harvest.

Desfrán is the perfect candidate if you are looking for a true Sativa that has a nice stretch during flowering and is well suited for both a quick SOG and SCROG grow. Its structure makes it the ultimate lady to bend, snap and super crop.

Desfrán cannabis seeds flowering time

Desfrán being an almost pure Sativa variety she also has a relatively long flowering time. On average, this is somewhere between 9-12 weeks. The fastest phenotypes will take around 9 weeks to be ready for harvest and the slowest around 12 weeks. Of course, ideal conditions lead to faster ripening, while problems lead to slower flowering. Due to her great stretch during the flowering phase, plants grow quite tall.

Desfrán can continue to stretch for around 3-5 weeks after the clock is set to 12/12. Plants 1.5-2 meters tall are common, especially when grown naturally in large pots. It is therefore recommended to grow this lady in a SCROG or to top her early and if necessary to check her stretch somewhat with the help of bending, snapping and supercropping.

You can also grow her directly from seed on a 12/12 grow cycle, preferably in a SOG, for a total harvesting period of 2.5-3 months (cannabis seed to harvest). Due to her long flowering period, she is not suitable for outdoor cultivation in temperate climates. However, she is very suitable for growing outdoors in areas around the equator, where it is nice and warm and sunny. Her high elongation in combination with the plant and bloom structure makes her ideal for warm areas with only 12-14 hours of daylight per day.

Desfrán cannabis seeds average yield

This is a fast flowering pure Sativa with a very high yield. Desfrán hasn’t been given an XXL marking for nothing. This lady grows fast and produces a lot of buds. When you grow her in a SCROG you will see that she can fill the entire room in a short time! Indoors in a controlled growing environment she will yield around 500-600g/m2 on average.

However, in the hands of an expert, higher yields are possible and can even reach 750 g/m2. Pure Sativa strains like Desfrán are not always easy to grow and require some knowledge of cultivation before you can achieve top results with them. Novice growers can certainly grow her with success, but don't expect the highest yields if you've never worked with a classic Sativa.

It requires some experience and knowledge before you know exactly how to deal with this. Outdoors in a dry and sunny climate, or in a controlled greenhouse, this strain can grow to epic proportions. The plants can reach a height of 4-5 meters in ideal conditions and about the same width.

Desfrán cannabinoid and terpene profile

Desfrán is a THC rich variety that will average around 20% THC. In the hands of an expert, higher cannabinoid levels cannot be ruled out.

Desfrán is a powerful Sativa with a unique aroma and taste. This terpene profile gives a fruity yet sweet taste like you've never tasted before. The aroma of Desfrán is reminiscent of pear and green apple. As soon as you step into the grow room, it's like you've stepped into a fruit orchard. Sweet, fruity and fresh notes of apple and pear fill the air.

The scent of some phenotypes leans more towards tropical fruits. Pineapple and melon are 2 other fruits that are often associated with Desfrán. Sweeter notes of caramel and honey make it very special and addictive! The taste of Desfrán is tropical and resembles pear mixed with caramel with hints of grapefruit and melon with a sour, fresh and spicy taste on the exhale.

Desfrán cannabis strain effects

The high of this strain is exceptional, it is a very clear high with a strong uplifting and energetic effect. An 'up-high' that gives you a lot of focus and alertness.

A pure sativa to love! An early harvest (still with clear trichomes) can lead to cannabis that provides a very cerebral and psychedelic high. If Desfrán is harvested late, the taste is sweeter and it is a real 'destroyer'.

The combination of the terpenes and the high cannabinoid levels make this a unique Sativa variety. If you consume a little more the effect can be a bit 'trippy & racy' but this decreases as time goes by. Either way, it's a very strong Sativa effect!

Expert cannabis grower tips for Desfrán

This is a strain for the advanced grower and lovers of pure Sativa cannabis strains. Desfrán is a real 'light feeder'. This means that she can tolerate high light levels and also makes excellent use of this to grow even harder and faster. In terms of nutritional needs, she can be quite challenging to perfect at times. A tip is to ensure a lower nutritional dose than you are normally used to and build this up very gradually.

During the complete cycle, this strain requires less nutrition than others. An additional advantage of this variety is that it can withstand warm temperatures. Temperatures of 30-35 degrees Celsius are less of a problem. Although this can provide a slightly more airy structure, Desfrán can handle this perfectly.

For the best results indoors, we recommend keeping it a little cooler and growing her with a maximum temperature of between 27 and 29 degrees Celsius. If you work with large pots and an average pre-growth period, you can achieve the same yield with only a few plants per m2 as you normally get with a room full of plants! Be aware of prolonged stretching and during the first 2 weeks of flowering make sure to manipulate her slightly if you want to control her height.
