Homegrown Cannabis Co. takes on a fresh perspective on the manifest destiny ideology by believing that it is only a matter of time before cannabis becomes legalized and widely accessible. And when it happens, American Haze x California Haze, OG Kush, and Super Skunk will be at its forefront. So, these strains were combined into one incredible mixpack.
American Haze x California Haze is an excellent wake and bake variant. Stronger than a cup of espresso, the Sativa’s energizing push gets the body moving with ample liveliness. It is also favored for its cerebral psychedelic high that encourages creativity, as well as its unparalleled citrus flavor with gasoline-like undertone.
The legendary OG Kush, on the other hand, is sought-after for its stable and superior genetics which later became the backbone of West Coast strains. Blending Lemon Thai and Old World Paki Kush genes with that of Chemdawg resulted in this progeny bearing a classic citrus tang accentuated by subtle flavors of spice, pine, earthiness. It is also cherished for having stellar THC level that ushers forth an intense cerebral buzz and a calming, sedative effect.
Super Skunk then completes the trifecta by taking the last spot in the mixpack. The strain derives its moniker from an incredibly skunky scent outlined by an earthy, sweet aftertaste. Borne out of the union between Afghani and Skunk #1, this hybrid exerts a distinct body balanced out by equally phenomenal revitalizing effects.
It is by no means an accident that these three strains ended up in one incredible mixpack - it is destiny. With the Manifest Destiny mixpack, cannabis connoisseurs can now relish the invigorating, relaxing, and therapeutic effects these strains have to offer.
Growing Manifest Destiny Mixpack
Cultivating the strains in the Manifest Destiny mixpack requires prior experience and knowledge in cannabis horticulture. Thus, it is usually not recommended for beginners. This is because while American Haze x California Haze and Super Skunk are relatively easy to cultivate, OG Kush is quite finicky and some degree of expertise because it tends to be susceptible to many maladies.
It is possible to cultivate the three strains simultaneously. However, the space must be able to cater with the tall and lanky American Haze x California Haze, as well as the bushy Super Skunk and OG Kush. They are best grown indoors for easy maintenance and control of environmental factors. For best results, it is recommended to maintain the temperature of the grow room at approximately 20 to 26 C° and the RH level between 40 to 50% during the flowering period.
American Haze x California Haze
Like most Sativa-dominant strains, American Haze x California Haze can reach up to 6 ft if left to its own devices and given ample space to grow. The leggy plant needs training if vertical room is limited. Scrogging or the use of screen to keep the cannabis from stretching upwards is most employed as it encourages a lateral grow and boosts yield potential.
Although sunlight is still the best source of light energy for cannabis plants, growing American Haze x California Haze outdoors may entail difficulties because of its sensitivity to inclement weather, pests, and pathogens which could diminish the overall harvest. As such, it is best to grow it indoors, wherein these environmental factors could be easily managed. Also provide support to its heaviest colas to prevent branch breakage.
When cultivated under optimal conditions, expect the indoor yield to reach up to 400 grams per square meter after 11 weeks of flowering. The most optimal outdoor fruiting size could be as heavy as 600 grams per plant, which can be harvested by mid-October.
Without a doubt, OG Kush is a popular strain among breeders due to its incredible genetics. However, it is perhaps the most difficult to cultivate among the three. This is because it tends to be vulnerable to White Powdery Mildew (WPM), diseases, and pests. It is also not too resilient when exposed to harsh and fluctuating climatic conditions. As such, it is best cultivated indoors wherein the environmental factors could be easily controlled.
OG Kush features broad-fingered leaves and sturdy stems with relatively short internodes. Pruning its fan leaves is essential to improve airflow and prevent air stagnation in its lower branches. When cultivated indoors with limited vertical space, fimming and low-stress training such as mainlining are also necessary to encourage compact and lateral growth.
This plant adapts well to either SOG or SCRoG. Either one helps maximize the space as well as increase the yields and bud size. Although it has sturdy stems, OG Kush’s buds tend to be extraordinarily voluminous and heavily coated with resins. Thus, supporting the branches is necessary to prevent it from collapsing under the weight of the buds.
A hydroponics setup is ideal for growing OG Kush as it helps keep the immune system healthy and robust by directly delivering the needed nutrients to the roots. It requires ample amounts of calcium and magnesium during the flowering stage to allow the buds to reach its full potential. Feeding it with compost tea will also strengthen its immune system against WPM.
Provided that it received optimal care throughout its vegetative and flowering stage, OG Kush will yield 500 grams per square meter (indoors) or 450 grams per plant (outdoors) of top-shelf dense, resinous buds after 8 to 9 weeks of flowering.
Super Skunk grows to be a compact plant with heights ranging from merely 2 to 3 feet. Hence, using the Sea of Green method is ideal for maximizing the space and light exposure while boosting overall yields.
It is relatively easy to grow due to its high resistance to pests, diseases, and various environmental fluctuations. As such, Super Skunk adapts well to both indoor and outdoor cultivation as long as the climate is warm, dry, and temperate.
This plant does exude a pungent smell - and often an unwitting disclosure of its presence. As such, the use of an efficient carbon odor control filter is needed to tame the odor. When grown outdoors, the best bet for preventing its skunky smell from wafting across the neighborhood is to ensure that the garden is located in a secluded area with lots of sunshine for optimal growth while maintaining discreetness.
This strain is the fastest growing among the three in the mixpack, especially when a hydroponics system is used. After just 7 to 9 weeks of flowering, it will yield 500 grams of fat nugs per square meter when cultivated under a 600 watt LED/HPS lamp. When grown outdoors in organic soil and exposed to ample sunlight, expect larger yields of 600 grams of buds per plant.
Fragrance and Flavor
The Manifest Destiny mixpack offers a potpourri of flavors and aromas that will undoubtedly appease the senses with a blissful blend of lemons, spice, pines, and a mask of earthiness.
Upon breaking up the buds, American Haze x California Haze will fill the room with the pungent fragrance of freshly squeezed lemons with subtle undertones of spice. Such aroma is further complemented by an earthy flavor and a hint of pine.
Similarly, OG Kush exudes a sweet citrus scent with an earthy, musky element reminiscent of the smell of damp soil. It also awakens the senses with a surprising yet pleasant dash of spiciness.
Super Skunk is perhaps the most aromatic of all the strains in this mixpack. It effuses a pungent and skunky fragrance with undertones of pines, dried sandalwood, honey, rubber, ammonia, and cheese. Flavor-wise, it has a unique appeal on the palate due to the blend of earthy, citrus, fruity, and sweet flavors that finish off the experience with a pleasant hint of spiciness.
Manifest Destiny is perfect for those seeking a mixpack that can provide your everyday cannabis needs, regardless of time. It also delivers unparalleled and long-lasting euphoria that keeps the experience blissful from the first hit down to the very last puff.
American Haze x California Haze
Better than a cup of morning coffee, American Haze x California Haze is an excellent wake and bake strain. It awakens the mind with euphoria, allowing users to start the day with an uplifted mental state. Plus, it boosts creativity, which welcomes a stream of new ideas, and increases energy to keep the body on the go. After some time, as the bud’s Sativa influence subsides, its soothing Indica effect starts to manifest. The transition leads to a smooth, relaxing come down.
Although it has almost equal Indica and Sativa portions, the slightly Indica-dominant OG Kush is famed for its robust, couch-locking high that induces a body-melting relaxation. Upon consumption, prepare to get swept by a rush of euphoria that eventually puts the mind into a trance-like state while enhancing self-awareness and sensitivity to colors, images, and music. It will make the head feel like it is afloat in cloud nine, whereas the body is heavy with calming sedation. Right when the effects are at its peak, expect to experience pangs of hunger as this strain also induces intense munchies. Finally, the relaxing effects will usher forth sleepiness.
Super Skunk takes the classic Indica characteristics to a whole new level with its profoundly relaxing and blissful effects. It fills the mind with calming and pleasant thoughts which result in a clear-headed euphoric high. After a few moments though, expect the relaxing body high to creep in slowly. Starting from the temples down to the toes, the sedation will gradually weigh on every limb, leaving one blissfully couch-locked in contentment.
With soaring levels of THC amounting to 19% up to 25%, the strains in this mixpack ensure that its effects are rewarding in both recreational and medicinal aspect. Given its high therapeutic value, American Haze x California Haze, OG Kush, and Super Skunk provide long-lasting relief from maladies of all forms - be it mental or physical in origin.
The variants are widely used in mitigating anxiety, Bipolar disorder, depression, and stress. Chronic pain caused by the likes of PMS, migraines, and arthritis are reduced or temporarily eliminated as well.
In many ways, these strain’s high THC levels are responsible for its highly therapeutic effects. However, it is also the reason why these strains are quite easy to overdose. As such, it is advisable to stick to low to moderate doses to prevent overconsumption, especially if the consumer has a low THC tolerance. Otherwise, it could trigger unpleasant side effects such as anxiety, paranoia, and lightheadedness. Regardless, some adverse effects such as dry mouth and bloodshot eyes are inevitable because these are inherent reactions of the body upon interaction with cannabinoids.
Mixed Manifest Destiny Pack
As cannabis continues to extend its reach far beyond the dark alleys where it was usually dealt, countless other strains are continuously surfacing.

Not only that, its growth characteristics such as the high-yielding capacity and relatively fast growth rate are also something that growers cherish.
