Titans story....an inspiration to us all.....thankyou Titan for allowing us to post this here and thanks to Marco Renda and Treating Yourself and thank you subcool for writing this!!





hemp chronicles 38•Treating Yourself, Issue 23 - 2010

By Subcool


Imagine you’re 18 years old, riding along on a nice spring day on your new Honda CBR 600 sport bike. You down shift to make a sharp right hand turn in the city and run head-on into a huge city bus that has drifted overinto your legal lane of traffic. In just an instant "BAM” your life is changed forever. This is what happened to my friend "Titan" a few years back. The bus was forced to swing out wide into his lane and since it was a blind corner, Titan never saw that his lane was blocked. In a Coma for some time the legal sys- tem rolled right over this young man and he received no compensation for this life changing accident other than the insurance that covered a portion of his med- ical bills.

Paralyzed at the T5 vertebrae with loss of function from his upper chest down, my little bro is now confined to a wheel chair for the rest of his life. The injury did not however dim his amazing spirit or pas- sion for life. Titan is a very accomplished musician and a very exceptional grower. I am sure he faces some heavy demons in the wee hours of the night, but his warm smile and his inner passion is contagious to every- one fortunate enough to be around him. I would like for any anti- medical cannabis person to explain why this young man should be denied any form of relief available to him? For sure he faces challenges most of us couldn't even begin to imagine.If a natural plant can give him some pain relief and possibly a good night sleep, who has the right to prevent him from using anything to get through the day?


People that say med- ical marijuana is just an excuse should be forced to spend a month in Titan’s chair! I first met Titan on the internet in a marijuana forum, when he responded to a few of my DIY threads, asking me to clarify a few points I had made. He was eager to learn and very respectful so it wasn't long before we became pretty good friends. I learned of his accident and while I watched people complain about the normal challenges of life I saw Titan operating a medical grow-op from a wheel chair. I bitch about my work while I am able to walk around on two feet, but this young man does everything that all grow- ers do while only being able to move the top 1/4 of his body.The words, “I can’t” are not in Titan’s vocabu- lary it seems. So the next time you’re having a bad day just deal with it as Titan does every day!


In the summer of 2009 MzJill and I attended the Seattle Hempfest and we invited many of our online internet fans to come hang out with us. Hempfest in Seattle has been a very safe place for us and one of the best gather- ings around. On a Saturday afternoon our tent was rag- ing with old friends and new fans, I was talking and sharing full melt bubble and in the middle of this com- motion of melting bubble and swirling smoke Titan rolled up. Titan is a Rasta and he has some bad ass duds but what I noticed was an amazing warm cherub smile. I was in the middle of a conversation with others and I stopped in mid sentence to give my little bro a big hug. He hugged me back and then proceeded to pull out a jar of Pandora's Box, a strain he had grown out from my seed. It was the best sample I had seen at Hempfest all weekend and in the top 5 samples I’ve seen all year. Regardless if he likes it or not I kinda adopted Titan as my little bro and we have become good friends over the last year. He showed me pictures of a cutting he grew out and it looked really fire. He told me it was a Killer Queen female he had received from a friend as a clone.

I am always on the lookout for exceptional Cannabis, I have said many times some of the best medicine is held by private growers in small gardens all across North America. Because of the variation in Cannabis it is com- mon for many growers to have different cuttings of a strain and each to be very different from the other. Many collectors will run across a strain and after one look decide that it’s not what they are looking for, but I know that selection is everything. A grower who is real- ly in touch with the plant will most likely do a better job of selection than someone who is strictly driven by prof- its. Titan and I agreed to swap some genetics and since we are both legal it’s completely safe for us to trade clones with each other. However, pests are always a worry so I put the two Killer Queen clones through a strict quar- antine before transplanting and then later taking cuts from healthy fresh growth. I pretty much ignored the plant until just before harvest when I noticed her literally ‘dripping with resin’. While the plant had a high leaf to pistil ratio every surface was glistening with trichomes. At week 7 I did a sniff test and wasn't all that impressed mainly picking up a G-13 odor, which I am not a fan of. I did a small report on what I saw stating that I did not think it looked to be a keeper strain. Only a week later I re-inspected to find a completely different smell. In that short seven day peri- od the fruitiness of the Cinderella-99 seems to come through. Killer Queen is a hybrid made up of G-13 and Cindy99 and according to the phenotype chosen each female can exhibit traits from mom, dad or both. I have grown out a Cindy Dominant female before but she was not as potent as this plant.

The first surprise was the ultra white bubble the sugar leaf produced when it was run through a set of Bubble Bags. The water hash came out almost completely dry and was very pure, being the color of sheet rock mud and bubbling completely leaving no residue when burned. The second surprise was how potent the dried buds are, this is not creeper weed and one hit smacks you clearly between the eyes and sets you back in your seat. For someone who’s job is describing the subtle nuances of the smell and taste of weed I struggle defin- ing this one. As my back was starting to hurt a few moments ago, I took a break to medicate on some Killer Queen.MzJill, Dioxide (my card holding friend & TGA partner), and I all took turns trying to describe the unique smell of this amazing dank pot.I smell some sort of exotic spiced tea and Jill smells Champagne, Dioxide says it reminds him of some fancy designer can- dle with a fragrant smell like artificial pineapple. It is a very pleasant smell to a smoker but it is hard to put into words the exact smell and taste. Titan is coming for a visit soon and I can't wait to get his opinion of the buds I grew from his clone. I am also happy that we put a clone of this lady into our library because recently Titan lost his due to an outbreak of mites. We will have a healthy clone waiting on ‘little bro’ as soon as he arrives along with a phat bonghit & a huge hug! Medical Marijuana has many faces; I wanted to intro- duce you to one of the faces that has touched my life.

As Titan would say; Jah Bless

I praise up with a six string Gweegie, and even tho my story is sad please remember that thru trial and tribulation the beauty of the human spirit is reveled, tragedy has taught mi many positive things and i have taken those things along with the message Selah, to built a house. this house is one of a holy foundation and strong walls of faith that protect InI from de ills and pain that accompany the blessings of life. so when ever someone reads my story and is met with sadness i simply wish to remind them that sometimes the weakest plant makes the most beautiful flowers. bless high ~Titan
