If your friend is looking for an earlier finishing version of that plant, put them in contact with us (oregoncbdseeds.com). We've figured out a way of altering photoperiod sensitivity in true F1 crosses so that they are guaranteed to finish in September.
We just finished seed production for a similar test cross; a 20%+ CBD cannatonic cut with a 58:1 ratio was combined with a short season 27:1 lady. All of the progeny will be very early flowering (and will add to the photoperiod sensitivity evidence from our work on many other lines this year), but what we are really interested in is the inheritance patterns for ultra high ratio plants. We'll share those results later this fall when we aren't dealing with field harvests! Best,
Damn, that 58:1 is more impressive than 24% - thats just a pinch over 0.3% CBD at 20%! Best of luck with your cross, it sound like a potential monster for the local hemp market. I'm also now wondering if its legal to grow a plant that produces less than 0.3% THC in a recreational grow for dispensary sales, because regardless if its more annoying and way more expensive, the Oregon CBD buying public is mainly in the dispensaries. Swiss Tsu seems to go in the 25:1 range so medical/recreational only for now.
I read something about inheritance patterns for high THC plants with CBD types, it will be interesting to read about how that patterns change at high CBD:THC ratios. I'd love to know more about getting F1s to flower earlier too, that seems like potentially even hotter info.
Some of the stuff on your website kind of make my head spin too. I haven't looked too much into the cannabinoids other than THC, CBD, THCV & CBN. When I worked in a dispensary we had one request for CBC in thousands of transactions & there are all sorts of other cannabinoids out there which are virtually unavailable due to lack of demand or information. CBDV interests me & I'm positive that if THCVhunter (from what I've read of his posts I figure he's somewhere PNW) still posts here he's interested too.
Please give us a briefing on what of the lesser known cannabinoids the hemp world is producing, I saw CBC & CBG on your seeds page. $2/seed is a massive deal for unique genetics like that, anyone could put them in 10 packs & sell them $100/pack. Are you prohibited from doing that?
Here is a pretty crapy picture of the east side of our 1:1 Cannatonic photographed on the equinox, when good plants should be almost ready to harvest. Its under a tarp for most of the time since then & will get cut young when someone gets around to it.
