There is no definite origin as to where this strain came from. There are a lot of urban myths emerging about the source of this plant.
The legend of G-13 begins at research facility located in rural Mississippi in the late 1960′s and early 70′s where the Government was developing marijuana strains with help from the University of Mississippi. Here, they grew many different plants in hopes of developing a super Indica.
These pure Afghani clones were supposedly labeled as G-1 to G-23. Each clone had slightly different characteristics and performed differently. It is rumored that G-13 was the most stable of these 23 different clones.
Rumor has it, that a man named Nevil Schoenmakers. got in contact with someone working at the facility that was known to be a bit of a rebel. One way or another, Nevil eventually convinces this research assistant to provide a sample of G-13 to inspect — which is then spread all over the United States through Nevil’s pre-established network of growers and connections.
G13 is a very strong strain of cannabis indica that is the subject of many urban legends. According to some accounts, the CIA, FBI, and other agencies gathered the best strains of marijuana from breeders all over the world. At a super-secret installation at the University of Mississippi, they bred many new super hybrids in the late 1960s. Allegedly, a single cutting of this plant was liberated by an unnamed technician and bred for the masses.
G-13, supposed “King” of all marijuana strains. Story goes that in the 60’s the government procured the best strains of MJ throughout the world, took 13 generations to finally produce the MJ strain. Other myth’s follow a similar scheme, G (government) 13 – alphabet – M (marijuana) A slightly more believable story is G-13 was created at University of Washington’s cannabis facility. Once again no proof to support any of these “Myths”
