That much CBD for me seems to dull the cannabis experience too much and tastes odd. Need to find the happy medium
Interesting that you like CBD at night. I find it works the opposite for me. It's almost like a cup of coffee but with extra clarity. I find THC to do the same in microdoses, but in a regular sized dose I quickly get anxious (with little to no CBD) and tired.
The flavors of today's high CBD strains sure do need improvement. I smoked pure hemp for a couple years and loved the subtle effect, but the flavors were god awful. Once I found a couple bag seeds and started growing my own it significantly improved, but there's a long way to go to breed in some real magic to the flavor profile. Luckily there are a lot of people working hard on that. For now I stick with rosin and bho. Seems like flavors improve significantly when everything becomes concentrated.
My AC/DC #1 has a really nice aroma and flavor when I flower it long and flush it well. I think it will be a great candidate to cross with DJ's lines.
My CBD Mango Haze #1 is an absolute terp bomb. I can't stop smelling my fingers after rubbing the bottom of a bud. Mango/Pineapple candy. I would eat a raw bud if it tasted half as good as it smelled. Best smelling plant in my garden by far. Definitely the exception to the rule in the CBD flavor department.
I'm also looking for a way to get the ECSD flavor into some high CBD lines. The Chem Beyond Diesel looks like a promising start, but seems to have a very overpowering chemmy funk. I'd like to get back to the candy lemony diesel area, with some CBD to balance the raciness of the high.
I think you'll find it much easier to start with a 1:1 strain and work back into the THC side. It will be easy to retain and even add delicious terps. But I bet it will be difficult to find consistency in the ratios initially. I'm following your threads to see how it goes. Are you going for general bioassay for testing, or are you going to use a lab, or other means of testing?
