Strain review by Discretepete2676: Ruby

Strain: Ruby

Grower Name: Discretepete2676

Breeder: Stone

Ruby

Medium: Sunshine aggregate plus, Coco, perlite

Nutrients: Advanced nutrients

Lights type and schedule (indoor): LED (amare technologies)

Days from Seed: 70

Harvest Points: Harvest was great for these girls. Super fast and easy because of the great bud to leaf ratio. Got a good chunk of some tasty scissor hash as well!!!

Dry Yield (grams): 80-100 grams dry…. Couldn’t keep my hands off it.

Growth Comments: Growth on these girls was great, honestly! Very very uniform and came out almost identical in height and bud structure. They took nutrient feedings exactly the same as well which is always a huge plus when working with autos and very important in my book at least!

Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.): In the beginning of flowering I had light fruity/ earthy smells up until midway through when the shark kicked in and took over. In the end the red pheno had a super strong diesel smell with a hint of background berries. The green pheno was a fairly even diesel/ earthy smell.

The Smell: Diesel, Earthy, Floral, Mango, Meat, Citrus, Musk

The Smoke: The smoke on both these girls was great. Green pheno Ruby was a more all around smoke while the red phenoRuby was more narcotic. Both very smooth and tasty without much of a cure even.

Do you personally consider this strain a keeper for long-term use
Yes

I am a Medical cannabis user.

If you are a med user, describe briefly your health conditions and how this strain affects them
I’m a medical user with terrible pains in my lower back, hips and knees. I have scoliosis and one of my legs is 1/4 inch longer than the other. When I was younger I was prescribed an instep to balance me out but I was hard headed and didn’t think I needed it. Now I wish I had with it ask these years…
Anyway I always have multiple strains going and this was more often than not my go to for pain relief over all the strains I had at the time. There was more than a few times I found myself reaching for Ruby, over some of my other strains, to alleviate my pains and the tightness in my back. Ruby worked great. The red pheno Ruby is more narcotic even and helped me sleep great.

Rate the noticeable medical and negative effects (if any) on a scale of 1-9 mild-severe.

5 Sense of well being

4 Euphoria

7 Anxiety relief

7 Paranoia relief

8 Sex drive

8 Sleep

8 Pain relief

8 Ability to rest or sit still

7 Thought process

1 Speech process

3 Imagination/creativity

4 Humor perception

6 Appetite stimulant

3 Introspective dreaminess

2 Decreased reaction time

5 Bloodshot eyes

2 Reduced coordination and balance

7 Increased heart rate

5 Dry mouth

Final Comments: Overall a great uniform strain to run and a super easy grow. Would love to have about 20 of these identical Ruby  girls going. The growth was very uniform and they were the exact same height at the end with a very close yield. Both were fairly dense but the green pheno was like little hard rocks. Very similar in size and feeding which are very important in a lot of gardens, specially working from seed. It was nice to have similar effects in the phenos but slight differences so I was able to use the red pheno at night for sleep and the green pheno during the day for pain relief and all around level high. These would be great in a SOG setup.  Really great stuff with awesome med properties. I’d definitely grow again. Always autoflower portal gear in my garden.

    Oh no, I swore I wrote out a huge reply to this. So sad..

    Must of forgot to hit submit.

    Amazing grow. Those rubies are very stable. I had the same structure in all of them. I had 80-85℅ purples.

    I thought the potency was devastating. I marked it as A 9 but I could say 8.5. some days it seemed like a 10. It was weird. Someone with an average tolerance would get slanty eyed. :yoda::yoda:

    So glad to see this grow! Thanks for sharing

    Thank you all for the kind replies! To be honest it's hard to take credit because these girls basically grew themselves to be honest. Out if the group I was running at the time they ended the happiest and healthiest probably. Really enjoyed it and be on the lookout for a full start to finish grow log and some more reviews coming your way!!! Thanks for stopping by everyone!!

    Great review Pete, having read this review I hope Stone threw some of these seeds into my order as a freebie
    (I ordered Stone Dragon and Moonstone) – have you had any experiences with these?
    Should really be following more of your work, here and on AFN
    sure you would be seeing a little more of me
