Hey everyone, wow this stuff smells amazing, if computers only had noses and you could smell them, you would agree ;) So I have been growing these Tree's for around 9 months now and they have been budding for a few weeks. The faster they grow the more they do, on an exponential basis. Cannabis growers will understand this.
Given recent world events, I feel that this plant certainly has a place in the search for optimal health. I don't smoke pot much, maybe once or twice a year but I do make CBD oil.
As per wikipedia check out more here: Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract. As of 2019, clinical research on cannabidiol included studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain, but there is insufficient, high-quality evidence that it is effective for these conditions.
Cannabidiol can be taken into the body in multiple ways, including by inhalation of cannabis smoke or vapor, as an aerosol spray into the cheek, and by mouth. It may be supplied as CBD oil containing only CBD as the active ingredient (no included tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] or terpenes), a full-plant CBD-dominant hemp extract oil, capsules, dried cannabis, or as a prescription liquid solution. CBD does not have the same psychoactivity as THC, and may change the effects of THC on the body if both are present. As of 2018, the mechanism of action for its putative biological effects has not been determined.
In the United States, the cannabidiol drug Epidiolex was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2018 for the treatment of two epilepsy disorders. Since cannabis is a Schedule I controlled substance in the United States, other CBD formulations remain illegal to prescribe for medical use or to use as an ingredient in foods or dietary supplements.

I recently harvested from two plants, the one plant is very yellow but buds really green, the other plant just a sea of green. I hear the yellowing of the leaves during budding is quiet common for some plants. Just have a look at those incredible trichomes.
THC the active compound in Cannabis check out here more as per wikipedia.org :
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis. THC is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis. With chemical name (−)-trans-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol, the term THC also refers to cannabinoid isomers. Like most pharmacologically active secondary metabolites of plants, THC is a lipid found in cannabis, assumed to be involved in the plant's self-defense, putatively against insect predation, ultraviolet light, and environmental stress.
THC, along with its double bond isomers and their stereoisomers, is one of only three cannabinoids scheduled by the UN Convention on Psychotropic Substances (the other two are dimethylheptylpyran and parahexyl). It was listed under Schedule I in 1971, but reclassified to Schedule II in 1991 following a recommendation from the WHO. Based on subsequent studies, the WHO has recommended the reclassification to the less-stringent Schedule III. Cannabis as a plant is scheduled by the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs (Schedule I and IV). It is specifically still listed under Schedule I by US federal law under the Controlled Substances Act for having "no accepted medical use" and "lack of accepted safety". However, dronabinol is a synthetic form of THC approved by the FDA as an appetite stimulant for people with AIDS and antiemetic for people receiving chemotherapy. The pharmaceutical formulation dronabinol is an oily resin provided in capsules available by prescription in the United States, Canada, Germany, and New Zealand.
We had a large storm recently and funny thing is the storm did not destroy this plant. The sheer weight of the water and the buds caused this whole Tree to collapse, however nature been as amazing as it is, the branches are still growing, just no longer in a vertical fashion, but a horizontal one!
Last year when I harvested my plants, no where near as big as these ones, I put all the harvested branches in my house to dry. This was a really bad idea as I have a one bedroom cottage and I literally woke up the next morning as high as a kite, so this time around I had to come up with a resourceful plan, but what?
I broke a whole bunch of branches off that had matured and placed them horizontally on another tree's branches to dry, this was a really good idea I feel and as soon as they dry out nicely in a week or two I can simply store them in bottle for further CDB and THC processing and extraction later! Neat plan right?
Free the Weed!
Nature the incredible!
I trust you have an incredible Sunday!
Love and Light, Be Blessed!
