Hi all: I was wondering what the chemical differences are between Sativa and Indica as they both have THC? Sativa meds seem to work better for me as no couchlock or no hangover. What are your suggestions for next year outside in Denver (average 1st frost is first week in October). I figure a high percentage Sativa strain would work. Thanks

Sativas outdoors in Denver don't stand a chance dude, not unless you put them outdoors already 4 weeks into flowering. You might like an early harvested indica, as you're a sativa lover. Early harvested indicas sometimes seem to have a sativa like high, more giggly.

Last year we grew a variety of strains, including kali most x cocoa kush x dp flo which was a 16 week sativa (tall ass indoor monster, thankfully I have very high vaulted ceilings in my flowering building and can jack up my lights as far as I need them), and most of last year was sativa heavy with few indicas, but I am always growing something new and breeding something new.

This year I'm planning a indica heavy garden, and I'm proving out more breeding projects. I have grown a few autoflowers, and the yield I got just wasn't worth it to me. I grew himilayan blue deisel and solid bottom, and I think a deisel x ak-47 autoflower cross.

I'm looking for grapefruit or iced grapefruit, mikado, and breeder steve's sol shishkaberry.

THC is not a MUST. I developed a high cbd cbn low thc strain to make extracts and cannacaps for my 16 year old daughter (she is a mmj patient, don't even think of giving me shit because I want to ease my child's suffering and big pharma is not helping) after a week on the cannacaps of the new strain I developed for her (thank you flying goat for the landrace ruderalis seeds I used to create the new strain I made JUST for my KID). She isn't going to the doctor or hospital as much anymore, taking 1/3 of the meds she was taking. She is young, she didn't want to be high or stoned at school and didn't want to smoke. It was her idea, "mom, create a strain for me to help me with my medical issues". Don't tell me if you guys were in the same situation you wouldn't do everything in your power to make your child healthier. I was just lucky, I had the seeds, knowledge and ability to create something to help her but not make her a zombie.

High times said lemon skunk was genetically engineered? In a way that is true. You chose a prime female and male and cross them to make a new strain that you hope will be better than the separate strains you began with, so that can be construed as genetic engineering, but as we usually call it, breeding new strains. Don't get caught up in technical language.

Interesting to read this thread again after a few years. A lot has happened since then regarding the cannabinoid profiles of the various strains of marijuana. They can now test for a number of different cannabinoids not just CBD or THC. And it seems the balance of cannabinoids is what determines how effective each strain is at relieving particular symptoms.

So now, rather than state what medical issues a particular strain can help with, you are given the cannabinoid profile so you can see the amounts of each cannabinoids in a strain.

They are finding that strains high in CBDs are great for inflammatory conditions, skin conditions (including melanoma), pain relief, all without getting high from the cannabinoid.

As the effects of each cannabinoid get studied, they're finding more ailments that can be treated with them. In fact, the science of cannabinoids is still in its infancy, with cannabis showing promise to not just help, but cure some diseases and prevent others.

Beyond that cannabis is teaching scientists how the human body regulates itself, opening up doors to cures that no other plant has opened before...

Wow that definitely looks and sounds like bubba. I agree with categorizing strains based on effect/benefits such as pain relief, and cerebral stimulation.

Looking for CBD rich strains

Dig what your saying about your daughter, developing a high CBD strain for my pain is the main reason for me coming to ICMAG. https://www.icmag.com/ic/images/smilies/comfort.gif

Sounds like you have figured out some crosses that are helping your child, any chance you can point me towards the right varieties to begin my own CBD breeding program?
Peacehttps://www.icmag.com/ic/images/smilies/thank%20you.gif

medical,
You might want to start with Resin Seeds Dieseltonic. It [fems] is currently and probably only for a short time available as of last week. I haven't found any in many months. Available from a very well known UK seed vendor. They claim that 50% of the females carry the 1:1 THC:CBD trait. If you're interested, PM me, since I don't think IC Mag would appreciate my putting a link to their competition. Good luck. -granger2
