Until a few years ago, people only heard about THC, the psychoactive substance of cannabis, when it came to Marijuana. The substance that made you hallucinate, do crazy things and made you, as a user, the weird pariah. What other substances were still in the plant? People were not even interested in that and only the name ‘THC’ was enough to include the plant in the Opium Act to ban the entire use of it. Fortunately, there are always dissenters who look beyond their noses and lucky for all of us, they went in search of the other components of the cannabis plant. One of the most striking substances that was found was CBD and this component did contain very special properties, so these scientists agreed.
CBD seeds are the result of crossbreeding where the intention was to obtain the highest possible CBD content from the plant. Through years of experimentation, by crossbreeding more and more plants that had stronger genetics, today’s CBD seeds produce up to 15% CBD. The result of all these crossbreeding experiments is that 2 strains of CBD have obtained seeds that are different from each other. You have, on the one hand, straight CBD seeds and on the other hand, the CBD seeds with a very low percentage of THC.
The CBD seeds that we, at the Cannabis Bakehouse, offer are all seeds with a high CBD and very low THC content. The percentage of some strains is so low that you won’t experience a high or get stoned while using it. Strains like Solomatic Purplematic Automatic, with 0.5% THC and CBD Automatic with only 1% THC, have all the benefits of CBD and also the beneficial effects of THC, because those benefits realy do exist. Just think, for example, of stress and pain relief.
Countless users of CBD oil and products have experienced its beneficial effects and more and more people are using CBD seeds to make the famous oil. The laws regarding the use, even of CBD seeds, are very unclear especially for small growers who grow the ‘tolerated’ five plants. That is why you should inquire very carefully about the relevant legislation in this regard, before you run into problems with certain authorities that do not consider the cultivation of cannabis in high regard. The Opium Act, which should provide more clarity, is also confusing. For example, one speaks of the maximum allowed 3 milligrams per liter, but this refers to blood values. The maximum percentage of THC would be 0.2% but, not to make it too easy; not all agencies follow these regulations and adhere to 0.05%. A big difference when it comes to paying fines.
We would like to emphasize that it is best to find out about the regulations and laws yourself regarding the cultivation of CBD plants and that the Cannabis Bakery cannot be held responsible if you, in one way or the other, do not comply with those regulations.
