Review: Green Fire Genetics
Green Fire Genetics
Alaina Austin, founder of Green Fire Genetics is a young grower, but you would never guess it from her wisdom in genetics and gardening. Strolling through her garden in sunny Northern California, she spoke with ease and authority about her growing methods. “I’ve just recently dove into the organic methods,” she shared. “Using organic compost teas, compost super soils for feeding your soil and constantly amending microbes is a major key with growing organically.”
Her garden — tucked away in Area 101 — is a beautiful, sunny place. The plants are full and healthy. With her level of care and knowledge, it’s easy to tell why.
A third generation farmer known as “Little Nugget,” Alaina already has years of experience under her belt. As a youth, she started helping her father, a man she credits with teaching her everything. Breeding her own genetics, Austin has since perfected her signature strain: Green Fire OG.
A combination of a Green Crack cross and Fire OG, this strain’s fragrantly dense nugs are covered in a thick layer of trichomes. A deliciously potent strain (test results sitting at 25–28 percent THC), you’ll smell hints of signature OG and citrus from the Green Crack. “I’ve had her for the last four years under lock and key,” Alaina explained, “and have been making exotic, landrace crosses of her to release to the masses at this year’s Emerald Cup in Santa Rosa! I never saw myself getting rid of my genetics; it was really just a way to set myself aside from everyone else with genetics nobody else has.”
“I’m going for the flavors,” Alaina added, listing her favorite crossbred strains while noting that THC to CBD ratio is of the utmost importance when breeding.
Austin is setting herself apart. Her dedication to quality genetics and clean, responsible growing methods, in addition to her experience, is sure to send her to great places.
