Mr. Nice is an indica marijuana strain made by crossing G13 and Hash Plant. Mr. Nice produces effects that are mellow and put consumers into a state of bliss. This strain has a sweet smell and taste.

After his time in federal prison Howard released his autobiography entitled “Mr. Nice”. Medical marijuana patients choose Mr. Nice to help relieve symptoms associated with depression.
Also called Mr. Nice Guy, the strain began as a limited-edition hybrid from the Netherlands’ Sensi Seeds, which crossed a female G13 clone (rumored to have originated in a government research facility,) with a Hash Plant male.
Sensi resurrected the limited-release hybrid in 1999 and renamed it after legendary cannabis breeder, activist and author Howard Marks, aka Mr. Nice.
The strain grows short and compact with dark green leaves and produces large yields of dense, sticky buds. It has a relatively short flowering period of 60 days and grows best outdoors in warm, sunny climates with long summers.
The strain was originally just called G-13 x Hashplant and was a limited release. It was then re-created and re-released by Sensi Seeds and renamed “Mr Nice” after the nickname of Howard Marks, the famous cannabis and hashish smuggler, author, and advocate.
