Yes, these cultivars are able to be grown and kept under 0.3% THC if monitored, tested, and harvested before they go over the limit. We suggest using these if you are an advanced grower that knows what to do with Type III Chemotype cannabis grown compliant within the definition of hemp. Some phenotypes may express themselves as non-hemp cultivars and could be grown outside of hemp regulations and treated as medical cannabis.
Are the seeds feminized?
No, these seeds are “regular”, non-feminized seeds. Expect 40 to 60% males. Real growers know the pros and cons of feminized seeds. We know that feminized seeds often have genetic irregularities and can be more subject to hermaphrodite traits. We also know that seedling vigor is real and often plants grown from regular seed can out perform feminized seeds and clones.
Why grow these seeds?
These are new and different genetics on the hemp and cannabis scene. They are unique crosses of some of the most rare and sought after cultivars. We grow for craft cannabinoid production. These plants grow and look like traditional cannabis grown for THC. They are not derived from typical industrial hemp cultivars. They will grow to look like high THC plants, not fiber and seed industrial hemp. Advanced growers may wish to use these in other breeding projects. These seeds can be used to create specific THC to CBD ratios for those authorized to grow that type of cannabis. People who have always wanted to try a “terpy” high CBD plant in their home gardens or for commercial uses will enjoy selecting from these seeds. Most growers will identify and keep mother plants of the best of the best and populate their farms with clones.
What is the germination rate of these seeds?
We are registered as a seed seller and required by the Colorado Department of Agriculture to follow labeling requirements for seed sold within our State. Each pack sold in Colorado will include a seed label that will include germination rates as well as a lot of other useful information. The vast majority of our selections will germinate at over 90+%. In many of our tests we get 100% germination but your results may vary. Our lowest germination rate is about 50% (we still feel people want some of the low germination rate seeds because of the unique properties of those cultivars). We can provide you with germination percentages of your selections prior to purchase. Please ask.
What is the CBD %?
Our most popular question! This is a very interesting question that has permeated the CBD genetics world. We will make no unsubstantiated claims unless we can back them with real science. There are many other seed breeders and sales people that make a lot of claims that we do not necessarily find true. Over the past few years, we have procured and grown almost all of the common high CBD cultivars in existence. What we have found is results will vary wildly. We have never been able to grow out a plant with zero or non detectable THC. Buyer beware of these types of claims with high CBD seeds and clones. We will leave it at that. If you want to trust your crop to what someone told you or with test results that may or may not be accurate, please go right ahead. We do not feel comfortable making claims that can not be backed up. Having said all of that, we find that hemp plants, under .3% THC will regularly come in at 6-11% CBD. A farmer or grower is doing very well to hit 10% CBD and maintain hemp status. We know that 13-16% CBD may be possible but under very specific conditions and very rare. We released these seeds for people who know all of this and will grow these out to find plants that work for their situations. Many of these plants will show CBD to THC ratios of over 80:1. These ratios will move almost daily during the flowering cycle and at harvest time (for hemp) come in somewhere in the 20:1 to 30:1 range. We also ask growers to consider other attributes in plant selection. Why are we so caught up in the contest for high CBD % when we are not asking better questions such as: what do they yield? When do you harvest? Are they best indoor, outdoor, or greenhouse? Insect and pest resistance? What is the Terpenoid content and makeup? Cold and Heat tolerance? And many, many, more… If none of this makes sense to you, then you may want to gain more education about this space or look into our Network Farmer program where we assist growers with consulting.
How many seeds are in a pack?
We have packs of 13, 25, 100 and custom quantities. All seeds are non-feminized. We can also do bulk seeds, please contact us for more information.
How do we purchase?
For sales within Colorado, we can accept a check, cash, or money order. We are working on online payment systems, please stay tuned. Seeds can be mailed within the State of Colorado. For sales outside Colorado, please contact us for information. Stay tuned to our social media and website as to more locations, brokers, and ways to purchase our seed selections.
Are these seeds “stable”?
Another interesting question. Depends on what a person feels is “stable”. Most of our seeds are F1 hybrids. We also have a few F2’s or Bx1’s available for growers that know what that means. We usually see 2-3 phenotypes and have a hard time with some of these F1’s finding more than 2 phenos. We have yet to find a hermaphrodite or “hermie” in any of our plants. We are sure that it is possible under extreme circumstances, but we have not seen it happen yet. We will also be posting further information on our website about all the cultivars in the future.
