THC free high CBG strains

Hemp Trading, the Spanish company focused on the international distribution of products for cannabis growth, as well as the main distributor of Buddha Seeds bank, has developed, together with the Spanish University Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (UPV), the first THC free legal cannabis strain with high medicinal potential, free of psychoactive components. It’s a very attractive strain specially for medicinal cannabis patients for its therapeutic properties to treat illness such as Crohn’s, colon cancer, glaucoma, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, among others.

The achievement has been to develop a strain that blocks some steps of biosynthetic route of cannabinoids, avoiding the formation of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the illegal and psychoactive component, increasing the stack of cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinoid with high medicinal potential and since now it was a residual amount, Hemp Trading’s CEO, Ernesto Llosá said.

CBG is the first cannabinoid which is formed in the cannabis plant. Therefore, it’s considered like “the mother’s cell of cannabis because it is essential to create THC and cannabidiol (CBD), which both are two of cannabinoids with a greater presence. As the plant grows in the biosynthetic process, CBG is transformed into THC, CBD and other minority cannabinoids. As a result, CBG disappears basically, Salvador Soler, researcher of the Spanish University, Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) informed.

Thanks to the research work of UPV, one of the only five entities in Spain that have a license for the cultivation of cannabis for scientific purposes, not only THC has been eliminated, but the concentration of CBG has been increased. Nowadays, industrial hemp, as the majority of European cannabis strains, usually accumulates a percentage of THC over the legal allowed (0,2%).

“Thanks to this development we get the plant completely legal and with CBG levels over 15%, when the normal quantity is 0,1-0,5%, Hemp Trading’s CEO, Ernesto Llosá explained. “Until now the CBG present in the cannabis varieties was in a minor quantity because it was mainly transformed into other cannabinoids", the Spanish businessman added.





CBG is the great unknown in the cannabis plant precisely because it is found in small quantities and there is hardly room for further research for medicinal use, as has been done with THC or CBD. "But thanks to this development, CBG can be obtained massively, opening the door to large-scale production in a legal manner, as well as doing more research to evaluate its medicinal properties", Llosá said.

In addition, the CBG extraction process requires less purification than CBD, the other non-psychoactive medicinal component of cannabis that is now booming. As Llosá explained, "plants with CBD contain a fraction of THC that has to be separated and rejected in the purification process. In our case, the CBG comes out pure without the presence of other cannabinoids, that is, we make sure that it is free of THC. Therefore, it guarantees the absence of a psychoactive component ".

At the moment, the company is registering the new strain and has not yet defined its marketing process, but this plant is an incentive for the cannabis sector and is a great attraction for pharmacists interested in making use of the medicinal properties of cannabis legally, as well as for industrial use.


Medicinal properties of cannabigerol


Generally, the medicinal properties of CBG are similar to those of CBD. Several scientific studies such as that published by the British Journal of Pharmacology (Taming THC: potential cannabis synergy and phytocannabinoid-terpenoid entourage effects) indicate that CBG reduces pain, reduces the inflammation that produces some diseases such as Crohn's disease, is a great inducer of sleep and has antidepressant properties. On the other hand, CBG inhibits the growth of cancer cells, helping to slow the progression of colon cancer.

In addition, CBG could be a powerful partner for the treatment of glaucoma, since it reduces intraocular pressure.


Collaboration with a Spanish University


It is not the first time that the company Hemp Trading collaborates with the Spanish University UPV in cannabis scientific research projects. In fact, the previous project used hybridization techniques to obtain plants that maximize CBD production without exceeding 0.2% THC, the legal limit to be grown in Spain. To do this, through the use of varietal crosses, the ability to produce CBD, more typical of hemp plant, is transferred to plants with a high cannabinoid content, without altering their high resin production, which is where cannabinoids accumulate.

Wow. Amazing work! Really excellent.

Hit me up when you are looking for testers, I grow full organic indoors under HID.

Very nice buddha those flowers look robust. really awesome to be able to grow CBG chemotype plants, Thanks to you & Ace for the Hokkaido varietal and this CBG flower variety.


No name yet, may the seeds be available at some point?


The buddha address url is broken, its a blank page that says apache is working.

I commend your endeavors, whatever the intentions behind the work, because it may provide some kind of acess to those who may benefit from the plant medically for their own homeostasis.

However, there at least two people in the world as of this moment (one in the EU, another in the US, both members of this forum) that have done it before publicly, iirc essentially through the same tech (finding a "faulty" cannab pathway that can't "convert" cbg-a into thc-a, very broadly speaking, of course).

One of them even shows it here:
https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=330712

If I need to say the other, I'll only say Haze, Skunk.


Credits for good work, YES, but credits where they are due also.

Cheers

We dont mean we are the first ones, in fact the lack of cannabinoids in hemp varieties is well described in scientific literature, more than 20 years ago.

we just are happy of publishing it and condivide, share and comment about it, we dont want to take any credit corresponding to others wich contribute to improve the genetic pool

There is a little difference as far as i know and it is the complete absence of THC; please correct me if i am wrong.


Edit: i see clear the article says first... tomorrow i will ask the guys to correct it

Hi again. I don't know with certainty about Hortapharm's/GW work but with @socioecologist (username here) his seeds probably must meet the .2/.3% thc requirement to be considered "hemp", otherwise farmers would get their crops destroyed before being usable for market.

In any case, danks for the correction, and as said before, props for conducting the work, looking forward to see developments.

Cheers

"The achievement has been to develop a strain that blocks some steps of biosynthetic route of cannabinoids..."

What method is being employed to stop the synthesis?
