Grow CBD Next To Your Tomatos

As the news spreads about CBD and more and more people are experiencing the amazing benefits, the dilemma arising is how does a patient get CBD rich medicine. Sure, there are some collectives that carry various forms of flowers and extracts, but these are available to relatively few. Also, as the demand rises, how will it be met?

As you all know, I am a big fan of dosed medicine; just like all other medicine. However, smoked CBD is also an awesome medicine. Little chance of getting stoned and a great possibility that you will feel a whole lot better with regard to pain, anxiety, inflammation, etc. Even anti-cancer properties will be conferred upon the smoker of CBD. Dosing is not as important in some ways, as there is little to no chance of taking too much.

Most people have never grown cannabis and many just don’t have the space or light or any easy way to grow the plant. So, we need:

1. An easy to grow plant
2. A VERY easy to grow plant
3. Short grow cycles
4. Grows well under various lighting and environmental conditions

Well, of course I am describing a ruderalis cannabis plant. Ruderalis is an offshoot genetically of Sativa plants, but have some very unique properties. They are more popular in Europe but they will be catching on much more here. The unique property of ruderalis cannabis plants is that they are “auto-flowering”. This means that they are not light cycle sensitive as are typical cannabis plants. Typical plants, grow first in a vegetating cycle. This cycle shifts over to the flowering cycle when light is below 12 hours/24 hrs. The auto-flowering plants just do the entire process, i.e. grow the plant in under 70 days. It does not matter what the light cycle is; it will be done on day X. So, these plants with VERY minimal care can grow indoors, outdoors and they would probably do well next to the tomato plant in your kitchen garden.

What if we had a ruderalis or auto-flower, that was rich in CBD? That would be truly awesome. Patients anywhere could obtain seeds and approximately 70 days after germination, the patient would have pretty decent CBD rich cannabis plant. One of the huge advantages of CBD flowers/leaves is that if the patient does not want to smoke, edibles or extracts can easily be made where the patient can tolerate the low amount of psycho-activity as a result of the CBD.

I have looked a fair amount for CBD Rich ruderalis seeds. Perhaps we will need to cross a very rich known CBD plant with a ruderalis and test the seeds.

Anyone out there who can help? Thoughts?

With COVID, we have never been more aware of critical shortages of masks, ventilators, hospital beds, etc., all leading to rationing. In this BLOG, Dr Frankel, examines how rationing in our medical care is a much bigger problem than just face masks.

Cannabis May Prevent COVID-19 Infections

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD's effect on COVID-19's ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
