In the growing CBD industry, it is important to know what you buy, and Veritas Farms Inc (OTC: VFRM) is a company that understands it perfectly
Cannabis sativa is a famous plant that is reproduced through the pollination of a male plant to a female, whose result is the formation of seeds that possess the genetic combination of their progenitor plants. If you are interested in this plant and want to buy cannabis seeds online or CBD-based products (e.g. Veritas Farms’ products), you must be aware of some important facts about the different cannabis seeds.
Currently society no longer considers the cannabis plant as a taboo, since even science has been responsible for verifying that its consumption has several benefits for the human body. In fact, its consumption has been legalized in many countries and states, which has initiated a worldwide debate regarding the legalization of this and other drugs, of which side effects and advantages are well described in the scientific literature.
These seeds are obtained through the pollination of the flowers of a female plant with its respective pollen formed in a reverted male; that is to say, a female that has been converted into a male using the compound called silver thiosulfate.
It is also possible to cross the reverted male with a female of the same genetics or it is even possible to cross the reverted male with a female of another genetics. In case you decide to cross with the same genetics, then the daughter seeds will have a greater stability.
These seeds have high levels of cannabinoids and are used to obtain very leafy indoor crops. However, we do not recommend that you sow these seeds in outdoor crops, as they require ideal climatic conditions to thrive.
With respect to these seeds, we must emphasize that they are obtained through the pollination of the flowers of the female plants with pollen that has been formed in the male plants without reverting. The seeds resulting from this crossing are cannabis plants (males or females), which once they show their sex, should be separated; or you can simply discard the males, if you decide you don't need them to hybridize new genetics.
These seeds are perfect for indoor crops, in case you want to cross plants to get different genetics from each other. In order to grow them outdoors, you will have to have plenty of space and light so that the plants can bloom without problems.
Autoflowering or Automatic Flowering
In case you don't know, lately many seed banks offer this type of seeds, which tend to be obtained in three different ways.
One of the most conventional ways is to cross genetics from photodependent seeds with Rudelaris genetics. The latter begins to flower with the maturation of its hormones without the need to receive light during the day. It is also possible to cross autoflowering seeds with light-dependent or photo-dependent varieties.
Finally, it is possible to cross autoflowering seeds with others that are autoflowering.
On the other hand, you should keep in mind that almost all autoflowering flowers are feminized, because they are used for small indoor crops. Also, these flowers do not have high levels of THC or so much bud production.
The differences between CBD and THC
Cannabis plants contain both THC and CBD, the two main naturally occurring cannabinoids. While tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is known for its high effects, cannabidiol (CBD) is non-psychoactive, which means it won’t get you high. Main difference between the two cannabinoids is the effects on people's health.
CBD is becoming widely accepted thanks to the medical benefits it has. Researchers have shown that CBD-based drugs have helped people suffering from pain, inflammation, nausea or chronic diseases. While CBD is tolerated even in large doses, THC side effects include increased heart rate, dry mouth, memory loss or coordination problems.
That is why, it is advisable for individuals interested in purchasing CBD-based products to inform about the whole process of making them. One company from the US offers full transparency regarding their manufacturing process.
