REVIEW: SEEDSMAN LAUNCHES HIGH CBDV AND THCV STRAINS
March 19, 2021
Seedsman are excited to launch two brand new medicinal Seedsman strains: CBDV 1:1 Auto and Diet Durban THCV 1:1 Auto. These novel strains emphasise the production of two lesser-known cannabinoids CBDV and THCV. You may or may not be aware of these cannabinoids, but on account of their potential therapeutic effects, they warrant a place in the experimental medical grower’s garden.
CBDV, like CBD, is non-psychoactive and won’t get you high, but it appears to produce an array of anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects. Interest is growing in its potential role in the treatment of epilepsy, autism and a range of other conditions.
THCV is similar in both structure and name to THC but produces an array of effects that differ greatly from those of its more famous cousin. There is growing interest in this cannabinoid as a possible treatment for obesity, or as an aid to weight loss, because it famously suppresses the munchies. THCV is also being researched for its potential to treat inflammation, pain and possibly even protect against dementia.
CBDV 1:1 Auto Feminised Seeds
Seedsman CBDV:CBD 1:1 Auto Feminised is a novel cannabinoid strain that has elevated levels of CBDV and CBD with correspondingly low amounts of THC. This 75% sativa and 25% indica auto has a short life cycle and is suitable for indoor and outdoor grows. Indoors plants are ready for harvest after 9 – 10 weeks while outdoors such a short life-cycle provides the opportunity to raise more than one crop per year in lower latitudes. Growers can expect generous yields for their medicine cabinet.
The scent of these dried flowers is very fresh, reminiscent of pine and tree resin (balsam). Its effects are incredibly calming, and being non-psychoactive it is a perfect strain for relaxing the mind as well as the body and should prove very useful for medical cannabis patients. THC is less than 0.3%
Diet Durban THCV 1:1 Feminised Seeds
Diet Durban THCV 1:1 produces equal amounts of both THCV and THC with approximately 7% of each. The scent and taste are pine-focused, like a walk amongst the conifers, with some citrus notes. The combination of these two cannabinoids with 2% CBD offers a highly lucid, stimulating, cerebral effect that also acts as an appetite-suppressant.
Although Diet Durban THCV 1:1 performs extremely well outdoors its later harvest time towards the end of October means that growers will need to be sure that the autumn weather will remain fine and sunny until then if the crop is not to be ruined unless a greenhouse is used thereby extending the range of cultivability. Indoor growers will be able to harvest after 8 – 10 weeks of flowering. Yields are very high.
