El Chapo burst onto the North London scene in 2015 having been created by crossing Sour Diesel IBL and Headbanger, the latter a cross between Sour Diesel and Biker Kush.
El Chapo resulted from a rigorous pheno-typical selection. This strain can be grown indoors as well as outdoors. In the former environment, flowering will last for 9 – 10 weeks with the majority of plants taking around 67 days to reach full maturity. It thrives in all grow media but does not enjoy high levels of nutrients – little and often is the watchword.
It is also recommended to multiple-top these plants for the best yields. Indoor odour control is strongly recommended. Plants are large and medium-tall in height. The scent and taste are very sour and diesel-like. El Chapo has a very very hard-hitting effect, just like its namesake.
