Classic Line CBD strains from Philosopher Seeds

Heaven’s Fruit is one of the strains developed using the Tropimango parent. Indeed, it is a cross between Tropimango and New York City Diesel. This balanced hybrid (60% Sativa – 40% Indica) is resistant to pests but a bit sensitive to low temperatures. It is ready to harvest in just 9 weeks, and its taste is complex: diesel, earthy and slightly acid. The effect is very pleasant and stimulating, mainly Sativa. Most Heaven’s Fruit phenotypes show high CBD content.

Fruity Jack / Jack el Frutero is a Respect#13 x Jack the Ripper#1 hybrid, a mostly Sativa cross that needs 9-10 weeks to be fully ripe. The taste is complex and delicious, a subtle blend of Haze and ripe fruit notes, while the effect is deeply relaxing. THC:CBD ratio is around 2:1, with plenty of individuals containing 19%THC and 11%CBD.

On the other hand, they used their Tropimango male and the renowned Juanita la Lagrimosa to develop Sweet Love, a perfect plant for using the SOG technique which is ready to harvest in just 8-9 weeks. The taste is sweet and creamy, absolutely delicious after proper curing. With 1,5:1 THC:CBD ratio (16%THC – 11%CBD) Sweet Love was awarded best strain to relieve pain byBESFES Growmed 2013.

Another strain with high CBD content in the majority of individuals is Spicy CBD / SuperJuani, a hybrid developed by crossingRespect#15 and Juanita la Lagrimosa. Its growth pattern is mainly Sativa, with a considerable stretch during the first weeks of bloom, which takes around 65-70 days. The smell and taste are reminiscent of Haze, with spicy undertones. The effect induces a strong feeling of wellness in both body and mind.

The SCROG cannabis growing system

Growing marijuana with the SCROG method

To use this method we only need from 1 to 5 cannabis plants for each m2 of crop. At the end of the flowering stage, the result will be the same regardless the number of plants, since we’ll get exactly the same yields using one, three or five plants. The only thing that may vary is the time needed to harvest our plants.

To make a SCROG setup we place a screen or mesh (preferably made of 6/8mm diam. bamboo sticks) with 5-10cm holes approximately 20cm above the pots. As plants grow, we train their branches using the mesh to control their height, always leaving the tops at the same height than the mesh. This way, the apical growth of the plant decreases in favour of horizontal growth, developing more branched plants.

This process should be carried on until 70% of the available space is covered, what will highly depend on the chosen strain. Now we only have to change the growing photoperiod (18/6) to flowering (12/12). During the first days, our plants will continue growing and stretching, what allows the plant to fully occupy the growing space. During the entire blooming phase all our flowers will be at the same distance from the lamp, what produces first quality harvests of first quality buds, homogeneous and almost identical.
