In today’s ever-growing and ever-evolving CBD market, we often only assess the end product and have that marketed to us in differing ways through the different products that are now available with CBD within. What we often forget is that you have to choose the correct components and characteristics for the CBD product that you are looking to create.
This blog post will take a wide look at CBD in the Cannabis Market and touch on everything from Seed to Consumption.
Before we move on, let’s remind ourselves with a definition of CBD according to Wikipedia, a common misconception is that there are only 2 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant but in reality there are well over 100:
‘’Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. In 2018, clinical research on cannabidiol included preliminary studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain.’’
So, this all starts with choosing the correct strains of Cannabis Seeds.
We need to check out the qualities that each breeder states their seeds have. Usually, those qualities are laid out as follows:
Genetics: Critical Mass
Variety: Mostly Indica
Flowering time: 8 weeks
Flowering type: Photoperiod
THC Content: 5%
CBD Content: High (5% +)
Grows: GreenhouseGrows indoors
Medical properties: 1:1 THC:CBD Ratio – a CBD rich strain.
Medical: 1:1 THC:CBD Ratio – a CBD rich strain
These are the properties to be found in CBD Critical mass from ‘CBD Crew’. You can see from this that the CBD content is 5% plus, which is considered to be high.
If we put this into the context you can only legally sell CBD products with no more than 0.2% THC in the UK, so it’s vital to understand the characteristics of each before you put them together.
The write up for the above CBD Critical Mass seed is as follow:
‘’With origins in Spain, many cannabis enthusiasts say that Critical Mass is the definition of the perfect hybrid. It is a truly amazing feminised variety that is both easy to of cultivate and offers a superior yield. It is the perfect strain for those growers who like to grow strains that don’t require an abundance of effort and who champion instant gratification in their growing efforts.
The plants grow quickly and they grow to an impressive size. After just 65-80 days of flowering time, Critical Mass is ready for harvest. The plants grow into huge, almost regal-looking specimens that stretch to produce a truly mesmerizing number of flower sites with ample sticky, resinous buds. The end product of this indica-dominant marvel is a typically indica and exceptionally potent high.
CBD Critical Mass responds remarkably well to virtually all growing methods, whether grown indoors or out, in soil, pots, or using hydroponic methods. The plants will need a good bit of horizontal space if they are to achieve maximum yield, but they are also somewhat short, like an average indica, which makes them a suitable strain for indoor growers working with limited vertical space.
When utilising the end product, be prepared for a long-lasting, heavy couch-locked stone effect. Critical Mass is also a preferred strain for users of medical marijuana. It works well on muscular pain, insomnia and migraine headaches. Its aroma is very sharp and woody with a flavour much like that of tobacco with an additional note of spice and hash. Some users also describe a subtle fruity aftertaste to the smoke.’’
Another consideration to make is the THC level. This is the psychoactive component and generally wants to be low as those looking to use the product for medical purposes, won’t want to be high, generally.
The definition of THC:
‘’THC is the main psychoactive compound in marijuana that gives the high sensation. It can be consumed by smoking marijuana. It’s also available in oils, edibles, tinctures, capsules, and more. – via Healthine.com’’
