Gerrit Slot, founder of Magus Genetics in the Netherlands, developed the well-known Warlock variety. He began his work in the 90’s and created Warlock circa 1997. It was submitted by the Bluebird coffeehouse and won 3rd place in the Bio category of the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1997 as well as the more prestigious award, 3rd place in the Overall Cannabis Cup itself.

In 2011 Warlock once again won at the High Times Cannabis Cup: 2nd place in the Seed Company Hash Cup category, as Hydra-Hash, entered by House of the Great Gardener.

The following year in 2012, Warlock won in a Canadian competition: 3rd place in the Compassion Club Cup.

Most recently, in 2015 and 2016 at DAB-A-DOO Barcelona, Gerrit’s Warlock won 3rd place in the Solventless Extracts category, entered by House of the Great Gardener. A year later in 2016, Warlock won 2nd place in the Rosin category, once again entered by House of the Great Gardener, and also won 2nd place at the Lift Expo Cup in Vancouver for the Rosin category.

Gerrit Slot retired from cannabis growing and arranged for Serious Seeds to take over his Magus Genetics lines. They’ve kept  true to his vision, I believe, and Warlock, Masibindi, and their descendants are still out there, waiting to be used in the next great hybrid. Cheers for the next superstar!

“Spear Pheno”

Warlock also became the foundation for several other respected varieties created by Gerrit, including Biddy Early, Double Dutch, Starwarz, Exile, Motavation, and Masibindi, my personal favorite. It is a superb building block for cannabis hybrids and has a recognizable genetic background stemming from 1970’s generic varieties such as Zamal, Afghan, Mexican, or Colombian. Masibindi’s Zamal A is a particular phenotype of cannabis from La Reunion island, east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean near Mauritius. A historical port for Portugese, Indian, French, and Dutch traders, La Reunion has embraced cannabis for centuries and offers some unique varieties.

Gerrit received approximately 30 Zamal seeds circa 2001-2002 from Gypsy Nirvana, founder of ICMag.com. Gypsy had been gifted these rare seeds from a French grower named Christophe and wisely passed them on to Gerrit. According to Gerrit there are two primary phenotypes, Zamal A and Zamal B:

“One I’ve called Type-A and had the common “octopus shape” but a much stronger aroma than the other (carrot) types, it has a similar “foundation” but with a strong “overtone” changing it into peppery.

This is the one I’ve kept the longest and have used to make the Masibindi, this one tends to auto-flower indeed.

The other one (that I called type-B) had a straight upward shape with less lateral branching, but had exactly the same (carrot) aroma as most others had.”

These two plants are examples of distinctly different Zamabindi phenotypes.

The plant on the left in the foreground was named “Most Fragrant One” due to its outstanding terpene aroma of “Candy Sandalwood”

The deep green, extremely leafy plant in the background was named “The Queen”, the same Zamabindi Octopus pheno pictured in the preceding photos.
