In our CBG breeding program, we focused on a feminized strain and an autoflowering strain that would be high in CBG and have very little to no THC. After introducing the feminized photoperiod version of CBG-Force cannabis seeds, we are now doing the same with the autoflowering CBG seeds, Auto CBG-Force. After several tests, we observed that Auto CBG-Force had consistently lower THC levels than the CBG-Force photoperiod version. Auto CBG-Force had average levels of 0.04% THC, while the CBG-Force photoperiod variety was closer to 0.14% THC. This is still well below the European legal limit of 0.2%. This may not seem like a significant difference, but for some legal growers, these ultra-low THC levels are very reassuring. We believe that the higher THC levels in the photoperiod version may be due to its longer vegetative period. Auto CBG-Force remains relatively low (well under a meter) but produces large yields of CBG-rich cannabis.
The flowers are white and covered with resin, but are not sticky like THC or CBD-rich cannabis. There are several conditions for which CBG could help, but more research is needed to understand the full potential of this relatively new cannabinoid.
