I am a Veteran in Virginia that is retiring from professional life to focus on my health, which includes the use of Cannabis. Because it is still ILLEGAL (even CBD oil!) in Virginia, I went through the motions to obtain a permit to use CBD and THCA only to be told I couldn't get it yet... Since I also own a small farm, I found that I could now register to grow and process "Industrial Hemp" as long as the THC content is below .3 %, so I am now waiting on those permits and have also contacted the University of Virginia to participate in the only research program in Virginia I am aware of that is studying the medical aspects of Cannabis here. I have also built out a small grow and processing room. What I need now is Seed and/or Clones! I have found some local growers. However, I am finding that they all seem to require large purchases of 1000 or more clones or prices as high as $500 for a few seeds. My next step is to contact them individually to ask if they would make an exception in my case as I just want to keep a few mothers of particular strains that work well for PTSD, Anxiety, etc. But before I do that, I thought I would post here and get some suggestions since I am so new to the culture. I had hoped this would be as easy as buying regular cannabis seeds but it isn't nearly as straightforward with "hemp." So it looks like I will just have to grow and try several strains to find ones that work best. Anyone have knowledge in this area to help a guy out? Thanks very much!
I am awaiting my permit to grow and process Industrial Hemp in Virginia and have registered with the state to participate with several local universities that are conducting research. I can purchase strains from other registered growers in Virginia without issue- but I am hearing that they will require a minimum purchase of 1,000 clones, when I just want to grow and process my own meds, while hoping to sell off the "biomass" to pay for it all. Maybe in the future I might consider marketing extracts or something, but keeping it simple and just want to concentrate on getting the growing right- which I can with the help of the universities. The State of Virginia says that they can assist me with getting seed imported for my use through their DEA license. So I am now trying to find sources where I can obtain seeds advertised as "industrial hemp" and meeting the .3 or less THC requirement. I would appreciate any suggestions, contacts, or tips as I would really like to see this opportunity of a happy retirement succeed even though I am starting it off with a Walmart bought Rosin Press
Some people I know from back in Atlanta that own a large successful craft brewery, created a new and very dank, India Pale Ale. Sweetwater 420 Strain G13 IPA... ha They used terpenes from the G13 strain and melded it to some sort of natural hemp flavoring and put with an already dank IPA. I got this in Texas and don't think it's in Colorado. Buy it if you see it! It's a tasty beer if you love a good dank IPA. I drank the first one real cold out of the bottle and could get the terpenes and flavor.... to me the hops took over after. https://sweetwaterbrew.com/brews/420-strain-g13-ipa/ peace mrG
