The images below are of a Jackberry cross with Herebei seeding from a grow of those strains SEVERAL YEARS AGO! I wanted some seed to practice with as I learned and, despite those seeds sitting in a medicine bottle for at least 3 years- you can see they are still very viable and STRONG! Thank you SANNIE! I double-seeded a 72-cell starter kit in late March and had 100% germination. I selected 24 from those and set out in my garden the beginning of April. Despite a freeze and very wet weather, and having to cull the males, I have 20 females in the garden now with these pictures taken at 11 weeks of vegetative growth. Several are well over 40" tall with several showing very strong BLUEBERRY phenotype that are beautiful and smell delicious! One of the images below I believe to be a male, but giving it some time because it began growing dark PURPLE and just continued that way, while the others (females) took longer to develop that way. If it's a male, is there any reason for keeping it to save the genetics? Or should I just settle for the females I have? If it's worth keeping, what should I do? Never anticipated this situation, but the damn thing is captivating to me with its color! While it isn't nearly as pretty as the two Blueberry females pictured with it, look at that color man! As I recall, I got roughly 2 ounces of dried flower from the grow that produced the seeds for this grow and the plants only reached about 3' high. These are already taller at 11 weeks than those! Any ideas what kind of yield I can expect from these that I don't expect to harvest until October or November (7 to 8 months of total growth)??? Thanks to everyone for helping me get this far. Outdoor growing seems to work much better for me than trying indoor grows- but I'll be taking clones of these soon and giving cloning a first attempt with my Ez-Cloner! Any recommendations on when would be the best time to take cuttings from these young ladies that are just 11 weeks? Peace!
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
