Oh, sweet antidote
When working with autoflowering marijuana seeds, one tends to think in practical terms: yield, speed, stability, strength, etc. But there are breeders who do not want to give up the flavor in exchange for all that. Thanks to seeds like CBG Auto seed, we obtain this type of plant with controlled growths and chemotypes that have been studied in the laboratory so as to meet your expectations with all the reliability in the world. If we can also get all that with a sweet and tasty resin, it’s even better! Mary Poppins said it best: “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.”
The distinctive quality of CBG Auto is included in its name: Cannabigerol. This cannabinoid is the original ancestor of all of those known and it continues to be the object of fascination for the scientific world because of the properties that are added daily to its list of benefits. It is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, neuroprotective, perfect for treating glaucoma or an inflammatory bowel condition, and according to the most recent research, it is thought to be a possible natural antibiotic that our hyper-medicated society would greatly appreciate. We have a lot of faith in the future of this seed.
As with other autoflowering marijuana seeds (a category in which we are experts at Kannabia Seed Company), the combination of genetics rich in CBG with very pure ruderalis gives rise to a very reliable automatic seed. This is something that we take very seriously and that we have tested and analyzed intensively before being able to offer it on the market.
As is expected, its THC level is practically non-existent (less than 0.1%, a lower result cannot be given) and, therefore, its psychoactive effect is completely canceled out.
Growing CBG Auto
The cultivation of this autoflowering marijuana plant has no special secret to it. It is very simple to bring it to the optimal point. Its light and golden colors, crystalline in the trichomes, can give the appearance of a conventional automatic plant. It is resistant to pests and needs standard feeding — no more and no less. If we had to highlight something about its cultivation, we would say that it is quite fast for being an automatic seed.
Indoors, you will have to provide the classic 18/6-hour or 20/4-hour light photoperiods. In a full period of between just 57 and 63 days (we told you it was fast), you will have a plant of approximately 75 centimeters in height (approx. 30 inches) and standard production of approximately 400 grams per square meter.
Outdoors it grows a little more and offers a harvest that is likewise ordinary: 100 grams per plant under normal outdoor cultivation from March to October. It works great on large and discrete balconies.
CBG Auto’s Flavor and Effect
Believe us, it’s delicious! Its sweet and floral aromas –soft but succulent– are a bit uncommon in automatic plants, but they are there. It is thanks to those aromas that this plant can awaken your appetite.
The chemotype includes the great secret of CBG Auto. It has a 7% Cannabigerol level and practically non-existent THC and CBD (ratio of 70:1 — you aren’t going to find it even with an atomic force microscope). Therefore, the psychoactive effect is non-existent, and lucidity is at its max.
Nevertheless, its healing effect is undeniable. In addition to the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that we have already mentioned, we could add a subtle soothing effect, similar to that of a good infusion with sugar.
