Renowned for its potential medicinal benefits, CBD flower is often used for its relaxation, anti-inflammatory and therapeutic attributes. Our collection of CBD cannabis seeds have been selectively bred to produce flowers that are high in CBD. By growing your very own plants, you can cultivate your very own natural source of Cannabidiol at home.Read More
What are CBD seeds?
CBD seeds product plants that are high in cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is one of the primary cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Unlike its counterpart, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD doesn’t produce psychoactive effects. Instead, it's main uses are for its reported therapeutic benefits, ranging from pain relief to anxiety reduction.
What is CBD used for?
People commonly use CBD to help alleviate chronic pain, reduce inflammation, and combat anxiety. Some studies suggest that it can also be beneficial in treating conditions like epilepsy, insomnia, and even certain skin disorders.
Because CBD doesn’t produce a "high" like THC does, it offers many of the therapeutic advantages without any of the the psychoactive effects, making it a preferred choice for those who want relief without the other side effects.
What are the pros and cons of using CBD seeds?
Therapeutic Potential: High CBD strains offer therapeutic benefits without strong psychoactive effects that other cannabis strains have.
Cheaper than CBD oil: CBD oils and extracts are very expensive, by growing your own CBD flower at home you can use it as you please. Smoke it, extract it, make edibles; The choice is yours.
Limited Psychoactive Effects: For those seeking the traditional 'high' associated with cannabis, CBD-rich strains might not deliver the desired effects.
What are the effects of CBD?
Unlike THC, which induces psychoactive effects and a characteristic "high," CBD interacts differently with the body, offering a unique set of impacts. While its effects differ from person to person here is a list of the most commonly reported effects:
Relaxation: One of the most commonly noted effects of CBD is the sensation of relaxation without the feeling of being "stoned" or "high." This makes it an appealing option for those seeking calm without altered cognitive functions.
Pain Management: Many users report a reduction in chronic pain when using CBD, attributing this to its potential anti-inflammatory properties.
Reduced Anxiety and Depression: CBD has been explored for its role in managing anxiety and depression. Some individuals find that it helps in creating a balanced mood, though individual results may vary.
Improved Sleep: Difficulty sleeping? Some find solace in CBD's potential to improve sleep quality and reduce insomnia.
Neuroprotective Properties: Preliminary studies hint at CBD’s ability to act on the endocannabinoid system and other neural systems, potentially benefiting those with neurological disorders.
Anti-seizure: Especially noteworthy is CBD's potential in treating certain forms of epilepsy. Its anti-seizure properties have garnered attention, leading to its use in specific medical treatments.
Skin Health: Topical CBD products are growing in popularity for potential skin benefits, targeting issues like acne and inflammation.
How do you grow CBD seeds?
Growing CBD seeds, much like cultivating any other cannabis seeds, involves a series of steps and considerations to get the most out of your plant. Here’s a beginner's guide to growing your own CBD flower at home.
Temperature: CBD cannabis plants typically thrive in temperatures between 70-85°F (21-30°C) during the day and slightly cooler at night.
Humidity: Young seedlings prefer higher humidity levels, around 60-70%. As they grow, gradually reduce humidity to about 40-50% during the flowering stage to prevent mold.
Light: Whether you're growing indoors or outdoors, ensuring your plant gets ample light is vital. If you're cultivating inside, invest in quality grow lights. Outdoor plants benefit most from direct sunlight for at least 8 hours daily.
Macronutrients: The three primary nutrients your cannabis plant requires are Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K). The ratios will vary based on the growth stage.
Micronutrients: Elements like calcium, magnesium, and sulfur are also crucial, though in smaller quantities.
Soil Quality: A rich, well-draining soil can act as a reservoir for these essential nutrients. Alternatively, hydroponic systems require diligent nutrient management.
pH Levels: Monitoring the pH of your soil or water in hydroponic systems is crucial. A pH of 6.0-7.0 is ideal for soil, while hydroponic systems lean towards 5.5-6.5.
Low Stress Training (LST): This involves gently bending the branches and tying them down. It can help the plant grow in a more bushy manner and expose more buds to direct light.
Topping: This involves cutting off the plant's main stem, encouraging the plant to grow two main stems in its place. It can enhance yield and make better use of space.
Pruning: Regularly removing dead or overgrown leaves ensures better airflow and light penetration.
Screen of Green (ScrOG): This method involves weaving the tops of plants through a screen or net, optimizing light exposure and promoting even growth.
How do you make CBD from bud?
Many users simply smoke their CBD bud, but if you want to use it as an oil then you will need to extract it from the flowers. Let’s walk through the basic process:
Harvesting and Drying:
- Begin by carefully harvesting the mature buds from your CBD plant.
- Place them in a dry, cool, and dark environment. Hanging them upside down is a common technique. This drying process can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks.
- Once dried, buds should be trimmed and cured in airtight jars for several weeks, ensuring that moisture levels remain consistent.
- Before extraction, the buds need to be decarboxylated. This process involves heating the buds to activate the CBD compound.
- Spread your dried buds on a baking sheet and bake at approximately 220°F (104°C) for about 30-45 minutes.
Your buds are now "activated" and ready for extraction.
Extracting CBD from your bud
There are several methods for extracting CBD. Here are a few popular ones:
- Coarsely grind your decarboxylated buds.
- Combine the ground buds with a carrier oil like coconut or olive oil in a double boiler.
- Heat the mixture on a low setting for a few hours, ensuring it doesn’t boil.
- Strain out the plant matter using a cheesecloth.
- Place your buds in a glass container and cover them with high-proof alcohol (like Everclear).
- Stir and mash the mixture for a few minutes, then strain the liquid.
- Evaporate the alcohol by heating the liquid in a pot, leaving behind concentrated CBD oil.
