Ravenberry - A First-Time Worldwide Reserva Release (+ Limited Edition drop and a free strain!)

Howdy Meph Heads! 

We are buzzing to announce the worldwide release of our Reserva strain Ravenberry! Available for a time at F3 in Canada and the UK, Ravenberry has been a firm favourite at Meph Canada HQ for some time now, now she’s been worked to F4 with selections made in NorCal, she’s finally on the menu for our worldwide audience. We also have a brand new set of Limited Editions releasing alongside their parent strain, an early-adopter discount AND a free strain to giveaway with all seed orders. Ravenberry has been a labour of love for us across 3 different countries, and we’re stoked to be able to bring her forth on a bigger scale to our friends in the US. The drop is scheduled for Monday 11th March at 12pm UK, 8am Eastern, 5am Pacific. (And don’t forget the clocks go forward in the US and Canada on Sunday the 10th!)

A First-Time Release in the US

Those of you in Canada and the UK might well know all about Ravenberry, but he’s an excerpt from her strain description so our friends in the US know what they can expect.

“Sit back and imagine lashings of sweet, thick, juicy jam with overtones of spice and fuel. Like dipping a frosted jam doughnut into a Christmas-themed, mulled diesel can. Our brand new Reserva strain was created by combining a vibrant, pink fading, strawberry milkshake-smelling and soon-to-become Limited Edition Jammy Dodgers from our original 2018 Illuminauto release, with pollen from a very desirable black-leafed selection of Creme De La Chem. A collaborative team effort from the start, spanning multiple years, continents and countries. The parental stock was crafted by Mitch and Tim at the farm in Spain, Ravenberry F1 to F3 selections were made by our newest team member Terrance in British Columbia and then taken to F4 by Nico in NorCal. Recently, and quite heavily sampled by the entire team on a “business trip” to Vancouver, it was clear to us that our transcontinental hard work had paid dividends, this beast has been all hands on deck and now we can’t wait to share that with you.”

A New Limited Edition Drop, a free strain and an early-adopter discount!

Along with Ravenberry F4, we’re also introducing a brand new lineup of Limited Editions, the third in our new drop format. A little explanation for those not in the know: Originally the Mephisto Genetics Limited Edition line was intended to be a genuine once-and-done Limited Edition offering, which back in the day could have been seeds just from one plant, however as our little company has grown and evolved over the years so did the line and the methodology behind it. As demand grew and we wanted to get these gems into more customers' hands, Limiteds became a further worked strain, taken to F3 with more seeds available. However, we’ve switched up our breeding processes for this new format whereby we’ll release our brand new strain with carefully selected standout hybrids to accompany them.



On drop day expect a choice of 11 appropriately bird-named Ravenberry true Limited Editions F1 hybrids, only available in feminised 5 seed packs at Here’s a preview of what you can expect:

12 Assed Raven
(4 Assed Monkey x 3 Bears OG) x Ravenberry
A complex hybrid marrying the rich, fruity essence of 4 Assed Monkey and 3 Bears OG with Ravenberry's unique jammy, spiced fuel notes. Expect a multifaceted experience, weaving a tapestry of sweet, savoury, and spicy flavours.

Berry Beast
Samsquanch OG x Ravenberry
This cross between Samsquanch and Ravenberry offers a wild berry adventure. Its profile is a fusion of earthy undertones and a burst of berry flavours, reminiscent of a forest walk with a basket of freshly picked fruits.

Blackberry Cookies
Forgotten Cookies x Ravenberry
Merging the decadence of Forgotten Cookies with Ravenberry's jammy richness, this strain is like a gourmet dessert. Its sweet, berry-like aroma with subtle hints of baked goods makes for a delightful treat.

Falcon-Berry OG
Strawbba the Hutt x Ravenberry
A fusion of Strawbba the Hutt and Ravenberry, this strain soars with a harmonious blend of strawberry and jammy notes. It's a smooth, sweet ride with a tangy twist, reminiscent of a summer berry feast.

Flamingo Fusion

Hitchcock Haze
HubbaBubbaHaze x Ravenberry
HubbaBubbaHaze and Ravenberry combine to create a suspenseful blend of sweet, bubblegum-like flavours with a mysterious haze. This strain offers a thrilling, exhilarating experience with a twist of the unexpected.

Quadruple Berry
Treble Grape (Double Grape x Grape Crinkle) x Ravenberry
A berry bonanza, this strain amplifies the fruity essence by combining Treble Grape, a previously available freebie that seems to strike a chord with everyone who tried it, with Ravenberry. It's a symphony of sweet, tart, and juicy berry flavours, perfect for berry enthusiasts.

Sweet Tweet
Iced 'n' Baked x Ravenberry
Iced 'n' Baked's cool, sweet profile joins Ravenberry's jammy richness in Sweet Tweet. It's a comforting, dessert-like experience, with a delightful blend of frosting and berry flavours.

Swirly Birdie
