Moonbow 112 by Archive Seed Bank

Jelly Doughnut, Citrus Zest, Floral Laundry, thick Diesel backend.


Large, dynamic nugs with a rich, bright green hue. Marvelous cure, dense. A+


Sour Pine, Lemon Pound Cake, Smarties Candy Dryer Sheet, Lavender, Sweet Soil & Evergreen Diesel, Mixed Berry Spice.


The first time I had Moonbow 112 was brought back to me from Oregon by @cali.budshots, who procured some on a road trip. Thank you,, again. I was so excited to try this strain, considering that I went to go pick it up once and it had sold out too quickly. I liked it, but wasn’t blown away, and I definitely thought it wasn’t worth the prices that the CA market was trying to get. Since then, it’s gone down a bit, and I was able to score another jar thanks to a recent shoot I did for

Holy hell these terps are loud. Sweet candy and pastry collides with shaved citrus zest, Zkittlez floral candy dryer sheet and a rich sour gassy backend. It’s a welcoming, sweet, acidic, juicy, aroma topped with an OG pine fuel and GSC dough at the same time. Let’s go.

I don’t even have to pull these nugs out of the jar to see that they are gorgeous, but as I break down a nug to pack, my brow sweats a little. This is sticky, and pulls apart like dense cotton candy.

I scramble to take mental notes as I’m immediately hit on the inhale with sour milk pine with a soft, vanilla lemon floor cleaner sans astringency on the slight on backend of inhale but will still linger through the exhale. The exhale brings a tart, floral laundry sheet, like a lavender fun dip. Then in comes an earthy OG fuel, followed by blue raspberry myrcene-like hops. It’s packed with flavor that lingers long after the exhale. Outstanding.

I feel like I could ramble on about this strain for a long time, and maybe one day, if I was getting paid to, I will… but for now, you get the idea. One of the best strains I’ve had this year, no question.

                                    Next-generation Dosidos and Moonbow strains are Archive Seed Bank’s next legends

                                    Leafly’s 2021 Strain of the Year is Dosidos, the brainchild of the legendary geneticists at Archive Seed Bank in Portland, Oregon—and if you love Dosi, you’ll want to keep an eye on its Archive-created children and grandchildren. Archive’s team, led by legendary breeder “Fletch” aka The Docta, are renowned for tinkering with phenotypes until they create the best expression of a strain. Dosidos is far from their first big hit; for the last two decades, they have been preserving classic clone-only varietals from the 90s into seed form, like with Face Off OG.

                                    The next greatest Archive invention since Dosidos, the Moonbow line crosses two household-name strains—funky hybrid Dosidos and fruity indica Zkittles—to get one of the greatest rising stars in cannabis genetics. Leafly users rate it a 4.9 out of 5, a slightly better score than even its already-legendary parents.

                                    Phenotypes of Archive’s Moonbow F1 Generation, including #99 and #112, have hit the recreational market, but Moonbow 112—yes, 112—is the latest and greatest… so far, at least. The strain placed in three 2021 Michigan Cannabis Cup categories, winning people over with its fruity-floral candy taste and euphoric, creative, and social effects.

                                    Two new strains are about to hit Archive’s shelves: One is the next evolution of the Moonbow line, while the other is Dosidos’ most excellent grandchild. These seed packs drop on Sunday, May 15, 2022, at 1 p.m. PDT, so get ready to grow some out-of-this-world cannabis this season.

                                    Moonbow 112 IX: The boss-level Moonbow strain

                                    Moonbow #112 F1 x Moonbow #112 F2 #60

                                    It took three years of work to create Moonbow’s ideal form: Moonbow 112 IX. Instead of backcrossing with the mother Moonbow plant, Archive put in the work identifying phenotypes in later generations to create more reliable results. By breeding siblings F1 and F2, Archive combined the best the line has to offer into one strain. This produced something that re-creates or even improves on the original Moonbow #112 mother plant without cloning—so you can capture that lightning in your home grow.

                                    The full-grown crops are impressive on their own, with great structure, impressive height, foot-long colas, and sticky buds that are each a handful on their own. Moonbow 112 IX was bred with flower quality as a priority, with a strong terp profile evoking blackberry, currant, and lime with a hint of gas. This one is truly the uber-Moonbow.

                                    Moon Glow: A fresh and fruity Dosidos-heavy cross

                                    Moonbow #112 x Planet Purple F2 #144

                                    Moon Glow has Dosidos lineage from both its parents, with Moonbow #112 on one side and a male Planet Purple F2 #144, the offspring of an in-house selected Sherbadough (Sunset Sherbet x Dosidos #8) crossed with a Moonbow male (Zkittles x Dosidos), on the other. This magical strain boasts the dense, colorful buds that made its grandparent a legend, along with denser resin, zesty Zkittles fruit, and a touch of earth, kush, and red wine tannins from Sunset Sherbet. The beauty of these buds starts in the bag and continues throughout the entire experience.

                                    The plants have a medium, well-branched profile, do well both as a cola dominant and topped, and take about 60-72 days to flower. Hashmakers can enjoy more than a 6% yield with some phenotypes.

                                    Legendary genetics, straight from the source

                                    Looking for strains like Scooby Snacks, Junior Mints, or Duct Tape? All of these come from Archive Seed Bank’s genetics, and you can even sort them by your favorite Archive parent strain to round out your crop with something you’ll love (or just nerd out on cannabis breeding).

                                    Moonbow 112 IX and Moon Glow will be ready to purchase on May 15, 2022, at 1 p.m., so get ready to do some seed shopping.
