  1. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/high-street-swansea-shop-selling-16095183 The Brain Box Shop - situated in High Street - opened in August last year after selling cannabidiol (CBD) and hemp-based products online for several months. South Wales Police said the visit to the shop was part of "Operation Hazardia" which, as well as targeting outstanding suspects, aimed to work with a range of colleagues and partners to detect and prevent further crime. One of the store owners, Karol Cegla, said police and trading standards visited the store last Friday afternoon, adding that he felt they were expecting to find cannabis was being sold from the shop. He said he wasn't sure if it was a full raid as police didn't take everything, just samples, adding that they were now waiting for the test results to come back. Mr Cegla said trading standards told them they needed to do an inspection of the products they were selling and needed samples of their products such as the hemp flowers or teas. Karol Cegla. A CBD and hemp shop "The Brain Box Shop" has opened in Swansea's High Street and they sell all sorts (Image: South Wales Evening Post) Some of the products available at the Brain Box Shop on Swansea's High Street (Image: South Wales Evening Post) "At the same time, police were going through everything in the shop," he continued. "At the moment we are waiting to hear back from them. "Both of them took samples as police wanted to know about the THC levels in the products." Hemp is a cannabis plant with trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - the psychoactive substance in cannabis - and higher concentrations of CBD. Among the products they sell, it is the whole plant extract - in oil, raw or capsules - which they sell as a food supplement. They are not claiming any medical benefits, but say some customers are using them for therapeutic reasons such as to treat anxiety or depression. They sell edibles, tea and hemp flowers as well, which are some of their most popular products. At the moment, they sell several strains of hemp flowers - such as Strawberry Bubble (13.9% CBD), White Widow (15.3% CBD) or Spanish Sensi (6.9% CBD). Other products sold in the store include skin balms with hemp oil and lavender, which can be used for skin conditions or joint pain. Don, also of The Brain Box Shop, has previously said they called themselves a "CBD dispensary" and that, rather than specialising in one product, they were looking at all the possibilities the plant offered, selling all sorts of things. They sell tea and hemp flowers as well, which are some of their most popular products (Image: South Wales Evening Post) (Image: South Wales Evening Post) He claimed their flowers were first tested in Europe and then put through a further test in the UK to make sure the THC was not present. "We have worked as closely as possible with the police and we have been visited two or three times over the past year by them," he continued. "We were very surprised that they turned up - we are hoping to create a transparent relationship with them. "We believe being able to sell the full range of CBD products has benefited the area and our customers. "We feel we are being penalised wrongly and are now thinking of whether we should leave the High Street altogether. "We are working with the emerging market which clearly shows cannabinoids work but we live in fear constantly." (Image: South Wales Evening Post) Hemp tea on sale at the Brain Box Shop in Swansea (Image: South Wales Evening Post) Mr Cegla said they did not know when they would see anyone come back with the results, but trading standards had said it could be about two weeks. "They will let me know if we need to change anything about the labelling," he continued. "As far as I know, all my products are legal and I do not know what they will try to do. "This is a new industry and it isn't fully regulated so you never know what is going to happen next week - they could say that, from next month, it could only be bought on prescription, for example." A spokeswoman for South Wales Police confirmed a joint visit with Trading Standards was carried out at a premises in High Street, where a number of items were seized for further analysis. A spokesman for Swansea Council said: "Council Trading Standards officers recently supported local police during a routine visit to a business in the city centre. "This matter is ongoing."

  3. Are my plants sick? They are 3-4 weeks old I grow lots of Normal vegetables and this is my first time growing Cannabis if my normal vegetables were looking slightly yellow I’d be concerned.... am i right to be concerned? im currently growing seeds from barneys “CBD blue shark” i have a tent that’s in a shed. (120inx120 by 6ft) The light is a dual spectrum HPS 600w but is currently on 400w. The lights were 14in above plants I’ve literally just raised the lights to 17in. i feed 3 times a week. Got fresh air coming in. Warm air being extracted temps are 20-23c during 18 hours of light. Temps are 17-19c during dark. feed with FormuleX
  4. I’ve just started my training of my plants and I see people cut the bottom 1/3 of the plant away as light doesn’t get there. Im not at that stage yet but was wondering when I was would it be worth trying to get the cbd out of those leaves? The plants are now 5 weeks old i use morphine daily to get to work for back issues and I’m sick of using it. I’m 33, and the last 13 years have been lost to opiates. I don’t smoke at all so the plants are for oil only not to smoke. Was wondering would I be able to get some oil a bit earlier from the cuttings rather than waiting till the plants are fully done??
  5. Hi guys, I've been talking to a friend who uses cbd for joint pains, but is paying quite a bit for it - so I thought why not just grow some and give her a stack for free I plan to grow a plant, maybe chop the whole lot up and infuse into coconut oil before placing the oil into capsules for easy dosing. So I have two questions: 1st, primarily which strains do I have to select from? Ideally something indica so it won't take over my whole tent. Needs to be for someone who doesn't get high, so must comply with the legal amount of thc allowed - is this <.5%? 2nd is my thought of doing a coconut oil infusion going to be the best / easiest way to get what I want? Open to any suggestions here, so long as it doesn't involve any additional process - iso is out of the question as I don't have facilities to do a purge. I was going to pop this in a pm to @Dinafem-Mark, but I doubt I'll be the only one to ask this, so having it here for record may prove useful to others in the future. Cheers
  6. Is there anywhere selling cbd seeds that are under 0.2%thc? found plenty of places to buy bud online in uk but nowhere that sells seeds.. obviously dont want to buy bud if I can grow my own....

  11. 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. SEEDS & TEST LAB AVAILLABLES Cookies Chill CBD 2:1 is a high-CBD poly-hybrid strain. The mother is a cross of pure Girl Scout Cookies and LA Confidential while its father is a Totem CBD. It is a high-yielding medicinal strain with a CBD:THC ratio of 2:1. For indoor growers the recommended time for its vegetative growth phase is between 15 - 25 days. Flowering takes 70 - 75 days with the optimum temperature range for growth being between 22°C - 26°:C. It has been tested and found to survive down to 8°C and at levels as high as 38°C. These plants have a robust structure with many closely-spaced inter-nodes or bud sites. Its strong stems are thick and the buds are very dense and hard. Leaves are broad and large too. Typical yields are between 400 - 500 gr/m2 indoors or as much as 1000 gr/plant indoors. Recommended pH levels are as follows: Soil: pH range 5.5 - 6.8; EC 1.0 - 1.8ms. Hydro: pH range: 5.5 - 6.5; EC 1.2 - 2.0ms This strain has scents and flavours of lemon, earth, Kush and fruits. THC levels fall in the range 7% - 9% while CBD is rather higher at 15% - 17% giving a CBD:THC ratio of 2:1. Doctor Seedsman CBD is the crowning achievement resulting from a long and diligent effort seeking to discover a strain of cannabis with very high levels of CBD but with less than 1% THC resulting in healing effects without any psychoactivity. Many CBD-rich strains have been bred now have been but up until now the vast majority have virtually equal amounts of CBD and THC. Dr. Seedsman CBD is 80% sativa and is descended from a plant that its breeders named CBD Asia due to its provenance and high CBD levels. This amazing plant didn't even need the usual inbreeding in order to both emphasise and stabilise its desirable traits. It is a robust plant growing vigorously yet staying quite short and squat in the process. Indoor flowering lasts for 8 - 9 weeks while outdoor harvests should be ready in early October in northern latitudes. Yields are high and the buds nice and dense and covered with loads of resin. This plant is very aromatic but non-psychoactive. CBD production has been laboratory tested at 20% while THC comes in at less than 1%. This represents a CBD:THC ratio in excess of approximately 30:1. The effect is very deeply relaxing to the body with no cerebral effects whatsoever.
  12. 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..
  13. 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

  15. 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.”
  16. 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
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. Chem Beyond Diesel®, C.B.D. This CBD-rich strain consists of a genetic coming from the USA and it is the result of the cross between one of the most famous and outstanding American strains, a Chem Dawg and a CBD-rich European genetic of American ancestors from the Diesel family. The THC:CBD ratio of this strain stands between 1:1 and 1:2, making it a strain rich in CBD (Cannabidiol). The tastes and aromas of this strain are delicious and typically American, very intense and loaded with some shades of aromas, with sweet and woody tones, a touch of lemon and shades of aromatic peppers and spices, with an outlying but delicious background that stands beyond the characteristic aroma of the Diesel family. The plants grow with the appearance of an Indica-Sativa hybrid with Indica predominance, with a big main cola and generous production of side branches, creating large and dense plants with an abundant bud production. This strain produces a colossal amount of highly aromatic resin, excellent for extractions. Data Sheet Variedad SWS66 Indica/Sativa: 55%/45% Ratio THC:CBD (1:1 - 1:2) Indoor Yield::400-550 g/m2 Outdoor Yield::00-700 g/plant Indoor blooming: 8 weeks Outdoor harvest: late September
