The new antidote
Balance is the greatest virtue: we must always seek a balance in the universe that surrounds us. In keeping with this yogi maxim, we have worked to design a feminized cannabis seed that contains balanced levels of THC and THCV, one of the most promising chemotypes in the world of cannabinoids. We achieved our goal, and this seed is available in our professional seed bank.
Kannabia’s THCV seed is a very special seed and has been created with those breeders in mind who are always on the hunt for new experiences. Indeed, it has 7% THC and 7% THCV. This component is still in the study phase for us to be able to reach scientific conclusions about its properties, but it is already on the lips of all its followers because the beneficial effect is unquestionable: it compensates for the psychoactive effect of THC and blocks CB1 receptors, stimulating the metabolism to help with weight loss.
It is also a 100% sativa strain –a pure variety– and it shows. Although it has been designed for therapeutic purposes, it is perfectly suitable for those growers with a wish to bring a little more joy to this world.
As a medical marijuana plant seed, THCV does not require special steps or any more instructions than any other marijuana plant. Both indoors and outdoors, it behaves formidably and yields optimal and stable results — faster than one would expect for a pure sativa. The plant is of considerable size and expands in all directions, so you have to dedicate a little extra space to it.
Indoors, it will respond well to a ScrOG technique due to its botanical characteristics. It will need between 60 and 65 days flowering to be able to reach between 500 and 600 grams per square meter. To make it more productive, you can give it some controlled and constant fertilizer.
Outdoors it will rise above your head, growing up to two meters in height, and it can reach yields of 650 grams per plant. Its buds are elongated and breathe well; they will be ready to be picked in late September or early October.
THCV’s Flavor and Effect
The taste of Kannabia’s THCV is the classic of classics; it’s earthy and has citrus nuances, with depth and a lot of aroma. This is why it can also be used for extraction.
Its effect is unique — there is nothing like it. THCV counteracts the psychoactive effect of THC as if it were an antidote. Having said that, a high typical of a pure sativa is still noticeable. That euphoria and that creativity are toned down by this cannabinoid, but they are still there. It’s the perfect seed to maintain absolute control of everything without giving up your happy relaxation.
