A Detroit native, but currently operating out of Oregon, Daniel John “D.J.” Short has been practicing his magical marijuana alchemy since 1978, when he started experimenting with cloning techniques under a fluorescent desk lamp at the foot of his bed.. Since then he has crafted many popular cannabis strains, the most iconic being Blueberry, which actually smells like fresh blueberries.

Short has inherited his passion for cannabis and natural ability to successfully crossbreed Sativa and Indica varieties into award winning super strains from his Romanian great-grandmother. She was a gypsy herbalist who grew cannabis and other herbs for medical purposes, eventually passing down her acquired knowledge and skills to her daughter.
