WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol, or “CBD”, is a compound in Cannabis that has medical effects but does not make people feel “high” and actually counters some of the effects of THC, the euphoric component of hemp’s cousin, marijuana. The reduced psychoactivity of CBD-rich Hemp may make it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety and/or anti-spasm effects without any euphoric results. Scientific and clinical studies indicate that CBD could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult to control conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, PTSD, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections and neurological disorders.
WHY SHOULD I PLANT CLONES INSTEAD OF SEEDS?
If you intend to raise hemp for industrial applications like Hempcrete, textiles, or hemp seed oil, planting seed is fine. But if you wish to grow hemp to produce a CBD-rich harvest, which will fetch a much higher price on the wholesale market, clones are your best bet. First, our strains all come from female plant stock, or “mothers”. These strains have been tested for their CBD/THC levels. When planting seeds for a rich CBD yield, you don’t know what the results will be. There’s a good chance that a large percentage of your plants will turn into males, thus pollinating the females and reducing your CBD output.
