They’re bigger. They’re better. They’re here.
Through a non-GMO process of crossing common diploid plant specimens with their rare-but-naturally-occurring tetraploid counterparts (2 chromosome and 4 chromosome pairs, respectively), our innovative partners at Oregon CBD can breed massively-producing and infertile triploid (3 chromosome pair) specimens, with certainty.
Among these triploid strains, we’ll have among the nation’s largest crops of the high-CBDV strains Forbidden V and Pinewalker that are available anywhere, in 2021.
What’s so great about these strains, and about CBDV?
First, triploid strains are known to produce up to 100% more cannabinoid-rich flower than their diploid/tetraploid parents; they can also be 25-50% richer in terpenes and are completely sexually inert, i.e. they cannot be pollinated to produce seeds and there is no risk of pollinating neighbors.
Cannabividarin or CBCV is molecularly similar to CBD and produced in smaller quantity alongside it in the hemp plant, with high CBD strains naturally containing more CBDV. While similar to CBD in name, it exhibits its own exciting potential, mostly as an anticonvuslivant and for managing various neurological conditions.
Our Forbidden V and Pinewalker harvests expect to yield cannabinoid profiles that are nearly half (or 40-55%) CBDV. Both strains are extremely limited in 2021, with a significant share of the total supply being grown here on our farm in Ann Arbor, MI.
Stay tuned for bulk sale opportunities and for products containing these strains to start hitting shelves in early 2022.
