  1. We recently announced the next CBD Spring promotion, in which we announced 3 new genetics coming. Here the first, Pink Kush being now availlable. Enjoy!! Pink Kush CBD Auto is the result of crossing Kush Rose CBD Auto with Afghan Rose CBD Auto strains. It is 90% indica, has a fast life-cycle and a CBD:THC ratio of at least 30:1. As an auto-flowering strain it will be suitable for just about all environments. Taking a scant 9 weeks from germination through to harvest yields are said to be good although we do not as yet have any exact figures. Outdoor growers in warm clinmates will be able to achieve 2 or even 3 harvests per year. It displays an attractive pink colour in the buds. The scent and taste resembles pine and damp forest with earthy hints of red fruits. CBD is rated at approximately 17% with just 0.5% THC. Its effect is a soft, light, relaxing body high.
  2. Hi folks, Daily mail at it again The comments give hope though Cannabis oil sold as a health product in Britain can get users 'high', study finds Researchers found driving under the influence of CBD cannabis ‘may be harmful' The products have soared in popularity amid claims they help combat ailments The legal version of cannabis sold as a health product in the UK can get users ‘high’ and even make it dangerous to drive, a study has found. Cannabis oils and capsules said to help reduce anxiety and pain are on sale in high street stores including Holland & Barrett and are used by more than 250,000 Britons. They are sold legally because they contain no more than 0.2 per cent of the mind-altering substance tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is found in the illegal version of the drug. But now scientists have found that the active ingredient in these products, cannabidiol (CBD), is also psychoactive. In the study, subjects used a vape to inhale different strains of cannabis. Those using the version containing CBD but not illegal THC reported levels of intoxication three times that of those who used only a placebo. In addition, experts said subjects felt detached from reality. Scientists from Wollongong University in Australia concluded that driving under the influence of CBD cannabis ‘may be harmful’. The finding comes amid calls for the form of cannabis containing THC to also be legalised for medicinal and recreational purposes. Last night, Tory MP Craig Mackinlay, chairman of an All- Party Parliamentary Group investigating the effects of cannabis on the brain, said: ‘This is a startling revelation. For many years we have been told that THC was the key cause of cognitive issues stemming from cannabis, and that CBD held the “holy grail” of benefits. ‘These studies show that it is far more complex than simply isolating a few inherent compounds. Cannabis in its raw form contains more than 400 chemicals, so how long will it be until the next cure-all is miraculously discovered by pro-legalisers, only to be put down by science once again? ‘It is high time for there to be a full scientific investigation into the harmful effects of cannabis and its chemical compounds to put this misinformation to rest once and for all.’ Almost £6 million of CBD health supplements were sold last year. The products cost up to £60 and have soared in popularity amid claims that they help combat anxiety, insomnia and muscle and joint pain. There is also an emerging market of recreational CBD cannabis. Globally, CBD cannabis is expected to be worth almost £2 billion by next year, with dozens of companies poised to invest in the burgeoning industry. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6712725/amp/Legal-cannabis-oil-sold-British-health-shops-users-high-study-shows.html

  5. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/key-marijuana-chemical-called-cbd-can-no-longer-be-added-n968566 A key chemical in marijuana could spark trouble for a Brooklyn java joint owner who claims to be the first in New York City to have infused coffee drinks with the compound, cannabidiol, or CBD. Ian Ford, proprietor of Caffeine Underground in the Bushwick section, said business boomed when he started selling CBD Coffee and Trippin’ Tea. But now that the New York City’s health department has started cracking down on bars and eateries that sell food or drinks containing CBD, he expects to hear a health inspector to knock on his door. “We were the first ones in New York State to offer drinks with CBD and it became a big deal for us,” Ford told NBC News on Wednesday. “Now I don’t know what’s going to happen.” Ford said he’s aware of other establishments that sell such fare that have been told to cease and desist by the city. A CBD coffee prepared by Caffeine Underground.Ian Ford / Caffeine Underground “They know we sell this, but they’re not talking to us until they show up, apparently,” he said. “All of this is very confusing. It’s legal to buy it and stick it on your tongue, but it’s not legal to buy it and stick it in your coffee? It’s like there’s no rules and too many rules. “ The city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene confirmed in a statement that it was ordering restaurants and other establishments not to sell food or drink that contains CBD because it has not been deemed safe to consume. “Restaurants in New York City are not permitted to add anything to food or drink that is not approved as safe to eat,” the statement read. “The Health Department takes seriously its responsibility to protect New Yorkers’ health. Until cannabidiol (CBD) is deemed safe as a food additive, the Department is ordering restaurants not to offer products containing CBD.” The Health Department supplied NBC News with a list of 11 restaurants — all but two of them in Manhattan — that have been “ordered not to use CBD as a food additive in products.” News of the crackdown was broken by the Eater blog, which mentioned that The Wild Son restaurant and cocktail bar in Manhattan’s trendy meatpacking district was serving cocktails with a dash of CBD. Paul Downie, who runs the establishment, said that for a time they did serve such concoctions. “It wasn’t a marquee thing for us, it was just something that came up because some of our people use CBD oil and we started offering it to see if it would take off,” he said. “It didn’t take off.” Downie said they haven’t heard from city health officials. “In any case, we’ve pulled it,” he said of the CBD-infused cocktails. “We don’t offer it anymore. “ New York City is not the only jurisdiction lowering the boom on CBD. The New York Times reported that states like Maine and Ohio are also barring the sale of food products containing the chemical. Unlike THC, which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol and is the main component in marijuana, CBD doesn't get people high. Caffeine Underground, a coffee shop in Brooklyn, hosts an event with the Psychedelic Meetup Society in 2018.Courtesy of Ian Ford But it’s been touted by celebrities like Mandy Moore and Willie Nelson as a remedy for anxiety, insomnia, pain and a host of other ailments, although there’s little solid research on its effects on humans. Despite that, CBD increasingly showing up in supposed health products like skin creams and other topical oils. Besides the question of whether it is safe, another problem with CBD is that its legality is still, in some ways, TBD. The federal Food and Drug Administration last June approved the first-ever CBD drug to treat epilepsy. But the FDA, on its website, also says CBD cannot be sold as a dietary supplement or in food that crosses state lines. Meanwhile, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration still regards cannabis as banned schedule 1 drug and therefore illegal, despite the fact that marijuana is fully legal in states like California and Massachusetts. In New York State, marijuana for medical use is allowed. A recent investigation by NBC Miami found that certain manufacturers appear to be trying to cash in on the CBD craze — and the lack of regulation — by pushing products that are said to contain CBD but in fact don’t. “Patients are being duped,” said Chris Martinez, president of Evio Labs, which analyzed 35 CBD products and found that 20 contained less than half the amount of CBD advertised and some contained none. Back at Caffeine Underground in Brooklyn, the proprietor, Ford, said, “It’s not just drinks” he makes that contain CBD. He said he also has products with CBD from out of state. Ford said he has called the city health Department, but so far, “I’m not getting any answers.”
  6. Hi, I am from the UK living in the UK and looking to grow my own industrial hemp for personal pain use I suffer from PTSD...etc and other physical and painful health issues. I do not get on with THC and have tried CBD isolate which was ok , but found the full spectrum CBD oils better but at just crazy non affordable prices, I'm on a war widows pension and just looking for some non sterilized seeds that I can grow for my own use making my own oil. No feminized seeds, no THC or the 0.02% that is unavoidable but not illegal, no cannabis , just hemp.... and less pain physically and mentally. Thank you and thank you for having me here x ZB
  7. Heya Guys, I've been away for a while as my Mrs has been very sick indeed. She is in chronic pain and it is breaking my heart more and more each day. Unfortunately we are no way near a diagnosisis yet but I want to start treating at home with CBD oils and Edibles. I've had a quick look through the seedbanks and always have a preference towards Dinafem. But can anyone recommend a strain that is suitable for CDB extraction?
  8. After a succesful season in my new guriella site that I've set up, i'm now looking into making my own hemp oil for this year coming. I'm struggling to find any where that supplies CBD rich, low thc genetics that would perform well in our temperate climate. Maybe i'm asking for too much? but If any body could point me in the right direction of strains to look out for I would be grateful. Cheers
  9. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/wellness/marijuana-gives-you-the-munchies-what-about-cbd/2019/01/07/7a793076-0ebc-11e9-8938-5898adc28fa2_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.95964b86c363 THC produces the well-known cravings for sweet and fatty foods through several mechanisms, according to the experts I consulted. First, “THC increases the hormone ghrelin, which causes you to feel hungry,” says Janice Newell Bissex, a registered dietitian and holistic cannabis practitioner in Melrose, Mass. If your stomach is empty, she says, you produce more of the hunger hormone ghrelin, which tells the brain to generate the sensation of hunger. But THC can increase ghrelin and trigger the feeling of hunger even if your stomach isn’t empty. Second, THC hits a part of the brain that controls hunger. “The appetite-promoting effect of THC is mediated by CB1 receptors located in areas of the brain involved in appetite control,” explains George Kunos, scientific director at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md. And, third, THC boosts dopamine, the “feel-good” chemical in the brain, “so you get more pleasure from eating,” Bissex says. “THC can increase the sense of smell and taste, so people are more inclined to want to eat.” CBD, by contrast, does not cause the munchies, the experts said. But it may boost appetite in a different way if it’s added to foods and beverages or taken as a medication. “CBD helps relieve nausea and can calm your nervous system and digestive tract” Bissex says. “If you feel less nauseated, you may eat more. CBD also quells pain, and feeling less pain may also boost appetite.” For that reason, it’s often used by people with cancer, chronic pain or other medical issues. (Either CBD or THC — or both — can be found in medical marijuana products; the legality of CBD and THC products depends on the state in which you reside.) If THC increases appetite, does that mean recreational cannabis users will weigh more than nonusers because they want to keep eating? You’d think so, but surprisingly the answer is no. “Studies indicate that regular heavy cannabis users tend to be leaner than age- and gender-matched groups of nonusers,” Kunos says. Overall, cannabis use in the general population is actually associated with a lower body mass index. “Interestingly, cannabis may help increase weight in those who are low weight, but not in those who are normal or overweight,” says Bissex. The reason has not been definitively established, but may involve the amount of THC that someone is exposed to, says Kunos says. High doses of THC can suppress the number of CB1 receptors so that fewer receptors are stimulated, which could limit weight gain. And, THC’s hunger-boosting effect may signal hope for weight-loss efforts. Because researchers are able to figure out how cannabis increases appetite, it may help them develop products to reduce appetite, too. Some drugs are “inverse agonists,” which means that they bind to the same area in the brain but produce an opposite response. Using this theory, researchers are investigating how to reduce, rather than increase, appetite using CB1 receptors.

  12. Cannabis Component May Offer Treatment For Psychosis: Study The results suggest that cannabidiol may normalise dysfunction in striatum, parahippocampal cortex, and midbrain -- brain regions which are critically implicated in psychosis -- and this may underlie its therapeutic effects in psychosis, the researchers explained. Brain activity in the people at risk of psychosis remains abnormal compared to the healthy ones. A single dose of the non-intoxicating compound of cannabis -- cannabidiol -- can help reduce brain function abnormalities seen in people with psychosis, results of a clinical trial, led by an Indian-origin doctor, has revealed. Psychosis is a mental disorder characterised by a disconnection from reality. Brain activity in the people at risk of psychosis remains abnormal compared to the healthy ones. But in people who had cannabidiol, the abnormal brain activity was less severe than for those who received a placebo, suggesting cannabidiol can help re-adjust brain activity to normal levels. The results suggest that cannabidiol may normalise dysfunction in striatum, parahippocampal cortex, and midbrain -- brain regions which are critically implicated in psychosis -- and this may underlie its therapeutic effects in psychosis, the researchers explained. "Our results have started unravelling the brain mechanisms of a new drug that works in a completely different way to traditional anti-psychotics," said Sagnik Bhattacharyya from Britain's King's College, London. For the study, published in JAMA Psychiatry, the team studied a small group of young people who had not yet been diagnosed with psychosis but who were experiencing distressing psychotic symptoms, along with healthy controls. All participants were studied in an MRI scanner while performing a memory task which engages three regions of the brain known to be involved in psychosis. "One of the main advantages of cannabidiol is that it is safe and seems to be very well tolerated, making it, in some ways, an ideal treatment," Mr Bhattacharyya said. "If successful, this trial will provide definitive proof of cannabidiol's role as an antipsychotic treatment and pave the way for use in clinic," he noted. https://www.ndtv.com/world-news/cannabis-component-may-offer-treatment-for-psychosis-study-1908821
  13. New Source of Cannabidiol Not Derived From Cannabis or Hemp One of the many chemical cannabinoids found in a garden-variety cannabis sativa plant is cannabidiol (CBD). While CBD is either non-psychoactive altogether or far-less psychoactive than cannabis with high levels of THC, the compound is still listed as a Schedule I drug by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency because it is derived from either sativa or hemp plants that are illegal. A San Francisco company, Peak Health Foundation, recently announced its first CBD product derived from a strain of humulus, more commonly known as hops. Not the ones used to make beer, but a strain discovered in India that contains no THC but high levels of CBD and is not derived from a plant that remains illegal. Once a variety of hops was found in the wild with a reasonably high CBD content, Peak Health founder Bomi Joseph cross-bred the plants to create a new variety known as Kriya brand humulus. Joseph has patented the plant, which has a CBD concentration of around 18%. CBD is classified GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. That means that CBD can and has been used in a wide range of products from oils to edibles. Because the CBD has been derived from sativa or hemp plants, however, these products still run afoul of federal law. The company Medical Marijuana, which trades on U.S. over-the-counter markets, distributes the humulus-derived CBD oil under the name Real Scientific Humulus Oil (RSHO-K). A four-ounce bottle containing 1,000 mg of CBD sells for $165.99 at the company’s website and is available in all 50 states, not just those that have passed legislation permitting the sale of medical marijuana products. https://247wallst.com/consumer-products/2018/08/04/new-source-of-cannabidiol-not-derived-from-cannabis-or-hemp/
  14. Hi everyone We have a new video on our Vimeo Channel, we hope you enjoy it! Sweet smokes! jaypp
  15. Outdoor grower Hi there, Hope you are all well. I would really appreciate some help please! So I'm a first time grower hoping to grow some CBD plants to help with clinical depression and anxiety. Seeds used: 1st Batch 3 x Candida (CD - 1) Feminised Seeds 1 x Dinamed CBD Plus Feminised Seeds 2nd Batch Dinamed CBD Auto Feminised Seeds 1st Batch was started on the 1st July 2nd Batch were sprouted on the 15/16th July and started the process during a waxing Moon as I heard that was good for germination Attached are pictures from batch 1. What I'm finding tricky is how to get correct info to follow. I'm getting really confused as there's so much info online and a lot seems to contradict. I know that I ideally should of started the process earlier but couldn't start until recently. Main question at this stage is how often should these plants be outside in direct sunlight please? The plants are about 2 weeks old roughly and as pictured below Just started to give them a couple of hours direct outside sunlight and the rest time they are either inside in a sunny spot or indirect outside sun. I had to leave the plants unintended for a couple of days and something ate one of the leaves as you can see. Thank you very much for reading and any help would be really appreciated!! It would be so good to be self-sufficient and not have to buy expensive CBD oil especially as the anxiety makes it difficult to work. Thanks again!!! All of batch 1 Close up of Canidida looking good I hope Leaf Partially Eaten
  16. Hi 420 Genius Growers!! Hope you're all growing well. I'm a long time sufferer of anxiety and have decided to grow some CBD strains to help with some of the side effects of anxiety. Anyway just wanted to say hi and would be really grateful on some growing advice on the other forums. Thank you!!
  17. After the release of our first pure CBD strain, Dinamed CBD, our team of breeders had no choice but to go one stage further. We all wondered whether it was possible to boost her cannabinoid content even more so as to create a strain with super-high CBD levels. The result is Dinamed CBD Plus, an incredible plant boasting an impressive 20 % CBD content and less than 1 % THC. Dinamed CBD Plus was created not only to meet the therapeutic needs of medical users but also to offer the best quality ever to pure CBD consumers who, rather than the THC-triggered psychoactive high, wish to enjoy the relaxing effect produced by CBD. Apart from an amazing stability resulting from a rigorous selection and breeding process, Dinamed CBD Plus showcases higher cannabinoid levels than her sister, Dinamed CBD. Exactly like her predecessor, she is part of an extraordinary lineage of CBD-rich genetics and has her origins in a self-cross. Dinamed CBD Plus essentially derives from the self-pollination of an extraordinary plant known as Dinamed CBD 5. The purpose of our using this technique was to narrow her gene pool so that both her stability and homogeneity were significantly boosted. The therapeutic properties of CBD have brought in their wake a deluge of information and scientific research on this cannabinoid. After decades overshadowed by its distant relative, the CBD is no more in the background but at the forefront. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive, a fantastic feature that, together with its multiple therapeutic properties and its ability to fight the side effects of tetrahydrocannabinol, places great value on this interesting cannabinoid. Several research studies have proved CBD to have muscle-relaxing, anticonvulsant, neuroprotective, anxiolytic and anti-inflammatory effects. For all these reasons, Dinamed CBD Plus is a powerful tool for treating neurodegenerative diseases, some serious forms of epilepsy such as Dravet Syndrome, multiple sclerosis and even mental disorders like schizophrenia. Morphology Dinamed CBD Plus is a sativa-dominant hybrid with abundant lateral branching and medium distance between nodes. Her hybrid-shaped leaves with jagged and mid-sized leaflets could acquire purple hues during the last phase of the flowering when the temperature drops by 10°C at night. A beautiful mid-sized/large plant on which to feast your eyes. Yield Dinamed CBD Plus produces heavier yields than her predecessor, with more cannabinoids and stronger scents. Her resin is also different from what we’re used to. It’s less gooey, and this is down to her low THC content (lower than 1 %) that causes plants to produce less glandular trichomes and more basal trichomes. In short, incredibly bountiful crops of sativa-looking cone-shaped buds with a great calyx-to-leaf ratio. Aromas and flavours Dinamed CBD Plus boasts delicious sweet and zesty tastes. Ideal for lovers of fruity flavours with very special and familiar notes. Effects Thanks to her super-high CBD content of up to 20 %, Dinamed CBD Plus is the perfect anxiolytic, muscle relaxant and pain reliever. And, with such low THC levels, you’ll be able to enjoy all her properties without being hit by the typical psychoactivity felt when consuming cannabis. However, this doesn’t mean that Dinamed CBD Plus doesn’t produce an immediate effect. In fact, her high will quickly take you to a state of total relaxation that, without being too narcotic, will help you soothe away your stresses and even fall into a deep sleep. All these features, together with the anti-epileptic, anti-psychotic, anti-oxidant and antidepressant properties of CBD, make Dinamed CBD Plus a therapeutic strain of great interest. Cultivation Dinamed CBD Plus grows vigorously due to her sativa heritage and, although it shouldn’t be a problem, it must be borne in mind when growing indoors. In fact, she’s so easy to grow that a standard diet should be enough. No need for great inputs of nutrients. After a flowering of just 60 days, she’ll be ready for harvest by late September/early October in the northern hemisphere, and at the end of March in the southern hemisphere. Characteristics of Dinamed CBD Plus cannabis seeds Sex Feminised Genotype 40% Indica / 60% Sativa Cross Dinamed CBD 5 x Dinamed CBD 5 Suitable for Indoors and outdoors Indoor flowering 55-60 days Indoor yield 500 g/m2 Outdoor harvest time Late September / Early October Outdoor yield 1000 g/plant Outdoor height 3 m THC 0.5-1% CBD 15-20% THC/CBD ratio 1:30 Enjoy All the best Mark..
