How To Increase Cannabis CBD Levels When Growing Marijuana

Published

on

Cannabidiol (CBD) is found in a medical marijuana which is known to offer relief for various medical symptoms such as anxiety, chronic pain, nausea, and spasms. There are various reasons why most people want to increase the levels of CBD in your plants, which may include it provide relief for a range of symptoms and to silence the psychoactive effects of the THC.

Regrettably, it’s not possible to make a marijuana plant to produce higher levels of CBD than the amount limited by its genetics and not all the cannabis strains have the right DNA for the job. Most of the cannabis strains available today can only produce a minimum amount of CBD which is usually less than 0.5%. As cannabis significantly become popular, it’s obvious that people are looking ways to have more CBD than THC. Let’s look at how one can increase the levels of CBD in the growing plants.

Select High-Quality Genetics

One of the essential things to do is to select the right weed strain that has good genes capable of producing high CBD content. It’s important to consult your local farmer for a high-CBD strain or purchase seeds from specialized breeders. According to the study conducted by the United Seed Banks, about half of the plant strain grown from the seed can produce a 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC, while a quarter of the seedlings will be high in THC and low in CBD. Another quarter may produce a 1:30 ratio of THC to CBD depending on the phenotype.

Soil and Temperature

Though there is no study that has concluded on the matter, there is some belief that if you keep the temperature above 70°F/20°C and ensure that the soil is not cold, it’s possible that the CBD levels will increase although this should be combined with good genetics. A study on industrial hemp found out that temperatures and precipitation seem to influence the production of CBD.

Harvesting Methods

You need to harvest at the right time probably 2-3 week period of the flowering stage when the buds are already mature and have the highest CBD content.
