What would you guess to be the presence of THCV in the Malawi line you have been working with? I know malawi's have been rumored to have lots of THCV, and from the one hybrid I grew I got very beautiful psychedelic visual pattern recognitions when the buds where eaten (namely looking at trees and plants..hard to describe, but very beautiful). The preparation was with coconut butter and a bit of hemp oil under low heat to avoid oxidation/degradation, and Co-Q10 was added as a preservative (if that matters).
After periods of frequent consumption of the oil, the visual effect lasts a long time, even weeks after...in a mild way. For me, this was very unique. My girlfriend experienced the same. I must say though that the plants were harvested very early due to severe PH problems (tap water changed from PH 6.8-7 to 8 in a few weeks during my absence), so that may have contributed to it.
The visual effect when smoked was harder to get, though the high was more powerful, trippy/paranoid but also a bit dirtier if that makes sense. The visual effect was the strongest when smoking and eating were combined
Perhaps this is the "cartoon vision" people talk about with THCV.
I am sure you have tried the Thai used in the Destroyer by Cannabiogen that you mentioned has lots of THCV, so perhaps you can compare the effects?
Thanks for all your great working! Looking forward to growing your Panama and more bangi haze F6 in the near future...and hopefully more! The benefits of ACE's work on cannabis will be felt for generations to come!
