I'd love to get my hands on some seeds of this and have a play! I've seen this mutation referred to as mongy weed, dizzy,mutant and abc.

“I have to admit, after seeing these plants in person they’re really something else! They’re so deformed you could walk by or through them and not even recognize they’re Cannabis. They exhibit a leaf mutation that instead of producing typical blades/laminas they form these modified leaflets with little serration(and in select individuals variegation). In some of the photos attached you’ll find a size comparison of fan leaves from a drug variety and an ABC. These were sampled from approximately the same location on each plant and to further demonstrate their size difference I placed an ABC hybrid fan leaf onto a fan leaf of an adult drug variety. In one of the last photos you’ll see a small plant no more than 2 ft. tall. According to our source, this phenotype most resembles the plants from the original P1 generation.”


According to John McPartland (pers. commun., 2015)- “Some Cannabis in Australia has a very unique provenance. William Roxburgh, a British botanist stationed in Calcutta, sent germplasm from India to Australia in 1802. More Indian seed was sent in 1803. Colonists grew it in the Singleton district of the Hunter Valley into the 1820s. It no doubt gave rise to a huge patch of feral Cannabis that covered 30 km2 (12 mi2) grew along the flood plain of the Hunter River 160 km (100 mi) north of Sydney. The feral hemp was famously psychoactive.

Beginning in the 1860s, imported camels and camel drivers helped explore and settle Australia’s outback. The cameleers were Muslims and Sikhs from present-day Pakistan and Afghanistan. Perhaps 3000 cameleers lived in south-central Australia. They smoked from “narghiles,” and ate “marjoms” (Stevens 1989). The cameleers may have grown Cannabis (Rainford 2009).

Another interesting excerpt with pics...
(copied from http://www.cannabisculture.com/content/2005/06/13/4292)

One Australian grower said that the ABC was kwon as Mutant, and that some thought it might be a “colchicine polyploidy experiment gone wrong”.


One local cultivator named “Volcano” grew up some of our last collection of ABC x Flo seeds. He germinated the seeds indoor in BC during March and the seeds had germinated in seven to ten days.

ABC strain first set of leaves identical to regular cannabis, before the first true leaves appeared that differences became evident.

“Those leaves came out completely unlike the serrated leaf ”said Volcano. “In fact, there are no serrated edges on these leaves, they darker green and shiny, looking-they usually got no larger than two inches.”



“The males flowered early, some before the end of July” said Volcano. “The females were compact with short internodes. They were heavily branched with many leaves. The buds formed differently on every plant, but they were all very resinous with cannabis-like buds. But anyway, the developed plant does not look like cannabis”.

The weed were reach an average height of about three feet and harvested in November, trimmed and hung to dry. The plants approximated yield of three dry ounces per plant.

The weed smoked very clean, with a light, spicy flavor.

I don't imagine it's potent, probably similar to a ruderalis, the interesting thing is that it doesn't look like weed opening up possibilities to grow it outdoors without people noticing that it's cannabis which is the holy grail in stealth.
It looks like the "spice brothers" did release or at least experiment with this strain in the noughties but I can't find the seeds anywhere so it's possible that the results were less than awesome. Seems like we'll never know.

I am a newbie when it comes about growing marijuana inside. And i read that growing inside the house is way too expensive than buying it outside. But i think as a starter it would be expensive but if this grows it will lessen the cost. Am i right about this? Appreciated for the reply. Thanks.

doesnt have to be so expensive , im sure Sunshine will recommend a quick cheap DIY set up.
Main point is you can grow better quality and get great strains from the strain supermarket also with a discount from this site.
good luck look forward to seeing you get started.
