I recently lucked out and a buddy of mine who also grows marijuana produced a high THC strain.
He allowed me to cross breed and get seeds with a guaranteed higher THC content.
Why would someone want a high THC strain? THC is the part of the marijuana plant that gets you high. A lot of cannabis users don’t want to feel mellow and just relax. They like the mental and psychoactive effects that marijuana sometimes can give off. With medical marijuana, higher THC levels does in fact help those who need to reduce nausea, chronic pain and muscle spasms. So I can have a whole range of buyers with a heavier THC strain. Just having the right seeds to start the growing process isn’t enough. I have to really care for the plant and influence the THC along the way. The two to three week period of the growing process is called the flowering stage. This is the make it or break it stage when it comes to the THC content. The mature buds are where the highest THC content will come from. It is pretty easy to tell this time due to the buds almost looking like they have white hairs on them. The best thing I have learned is that people say to avoid harvesting the crop early. Wait as long as possible to keep that high THC and don’t damage the product when harvesting. I am hoping to have some luck with my THC content. It would really help my business out to have more diverse products available to the masses.
