Two new Spanish seed banks and a competition to win free seeds!

Hello everyone! We hope you're all doing well and enjoying the start of the warmer weather this summer. Over the past few months Mary has being collaborating and teaming up with many seed banks to offer you great prizes. Mary is excited to announce our latest competition in collaboration with GeneSeeds from Alicante, Spain! 

We met GeneSeeds at Spannabis earlier this year and were very impressed with what they had to offer - their plants look phenomenal and the taste and high of the finished product are both stunning too.

These guys like to specialise in beautiful exotic strains from around the world that do well outdoors with very high potency levels. If this sounds like your kind of thing be sure to check out their range on our website: www.marysseeds.co.uk/ collections/geneseeds


Below you'll find what we offer from GeneSeeds at Mary's


Black Lebanon is our cross between two different lines of Lebanese.

First a strain with hints of very pronounced earthy hashish that we selected and used as cross for developing Whiplash, and secondly a strain selected from a handful of seeds brought from a territory involved in the Lebanese war - we selected a cut of this that had a fruity touch which was hard to describe.

The name 'Black' was adopted because with a minimum of cold during flowering this strain achieves precious black/purple colors.

In the fragrance we find hints from earthy touches to fruity and fresh hash.

Black Lebanon is an easy-to-grow plant, and faster if you're running a flowering cycle of only 60 days.

One of our favourite varieties, a plant that brings intense flavour and effect yet is easy to grow with only 65 days of flowering. An exquisite taste that leaves no one indifferent, you will be asking for more until plunging into a deep sleep and a bestial feeling of hunger.  Its shape is similar to that of a fir tree and large amount of resin makes it fully frosted reminding us of its origin: the cold forests of Alaska.

We present to you, Harley Qinn, a variety that stands out for its large central column, with very fine flowers laden with resinous crystals.

It also has an outstanding sweet aroma and fruity flavor inherited from Hellriser and caramelated by the male of Maple Leaf Indica, whose genetics are compact and very productive.

Flowering is around 60/63 days.

This is an old cross from GeneSeeds started as a hobby; the goal was to stabilize the aromas and traits that interested us, discarding intersex copies and unwanted phenotypes.

The choice of name is due to the tonalities that some plants acquire when the temperatures drop, creating visuals reminiscent of the paintings of the Joker and his ally.



Crystal Tears ♀

This plant completes its cycle totally crystallized thanks to a thick layer of shining and sticky resin. Its extremely sweet flavour reminds us of that of a strawberry gum and its strong effect will sedate you and make you happy for a long period of time. Flowering cycle ends approximately in 8 weeks producing fat buds tight as steel. Let Crystal Tears surprise you.



Black Hell ♀

Black Hell is the result of crossing our beloved Black Lebanon with the magnificent Hellriser, getting a vigorous plant, with delicious exotic Skunk aromas, a very high production, great power and a blooming of 60 days.

You will delight yourself with a good plant, great branching, and if you do not lack food, you will take some precious flowers full of resin.

This variety will give you the opportunity to select a good mother that you will not miss any of your crops.

For its vigor is recommended for outdoor.


ExoVania ♀

We have crossed our exotic Evania, with the already mythical Old Skunk Exodus, achieving a robust plant with the structure of Exodus and all the shades of Evania in terms of smell and taste, also providing pretty colors even without the need of low temps.

Production is high and flowering time around 60-65 days - you will enjoy a nice branches loaded with flowers and very resinous glands.

 


To enter our competition, check out the GeneSeeds section on Mary's and comment on our Facebook post or our Instagram post letting us know which strain of theirs you’d love to try out and the reason why. The 6 most creative/interesting answers will win themselves the prizes. As a whole, we admire the cultivation-related responses.
Winners 1 and 2 will receive a GeneSeeds T-Shirt, 2 x Crystal Tears and 2 x Black Lebanon feminised seeds, GeneSeeds catalogue and both GeneSeeds and Mary’s Seeds stickers (pictured above).
The 4 runners up will receive 2 x Crystal Tears and 2 x Black Lebanon feminised seeds, GeneSeeds catalogue and both GeneSeeds and Mary’s Seeds stickers.
All winners will be announced on Tuesday 6th June 2017. Best of luck to everyone who enters!



And thanks to everyone who entered our ACE Seeds competition too - the winners for that were announced at the start of May. ACE are another Spanish seedbank we recently started stocking and we love what they're doing to promote the preservation of pure/landrace genetics. 

https://marysseeds.co.uk/colle ctions/ace-seeds

Here's what you'll find on offer from ACE at Mary's:

 Malawi + 

THE MOST POWERFUL PURE SATIVA ON THE MARKET. ONLY FOR THE MOST EXPERIENCED USERS!


After years of hard work and intense selections with sativas from all around the world, we can confirm that Malawi is the most powerful and psychedelic landrace sativa we know of.

Its dense flowers of enormous trichomes compete with the most powerful sativa/indica and indica hybrids on the market in reference to their size and cannabinoids concentration.

The potency of its flowers is simply devastating, and it is especially recommended for experienced users that seek extreme sativa effects without renounce to an abundant harvest.

 Zamaldelica  

SUPER SATIVA HYBRID WITH STRONG STIMULANT, UPLIFTING AND PSYCHEDELIC EFFECTS.

Zamal is an exotic African sativa from La Reunion Island, close to Madagascar, famous for its extreme vigor and legendary psychedelic effect.

An excellent Zamal mother selected for its trippy effect, fast flowering and remarkable sweet carrot and floral fragrances, was pollinated by the powerful Golden Tiger in order to create Zamaldelica, a super sativa hybrid with strong uplifting and lysergic effect and amazing vigorous growth.

Zamaldelica is receiving an excellent reception among sativa lovers from all around the world.

Its outstanding potency, very high THC content and the quality of its effect have no parallel in recent sativa breeding.

Panama Haze  

ACE'S BEST HAZE HYBRID UP TO NOW!

In 2008 we released a Haze x Panama limited edition which gave excellent results. Back by popular demand, we have decided to recreate this hybrid for our 10th anniversary using even better parental plants this time.

To create Panama Haze, we have pollinated our best incensey Purple Haze and Green Haze parental plants with our F10 Panama elite. The result is an outstanding Haze dominant F1 hybrid, with great vigour, potency and yield, where the lemony, spicy and incensey classic Haze aromas have been enhanced.

Panama's influence is significant in this hybrid, increasing flower density, resin production, potency and duration of the effect. We have improved Haze's indoor adaptability and reduce its flowering time without adding indica or skunk genetics.

We are sure that Panama Haze (along with our other Haze x sativa hybrids) will help to open a new chapter where the Haze recovers its super sativa splendor and essence, thanks to the introduction of 'fresh blood' coming from our best sativas.

Bangi Haze  

FAST FLOWERING STABILIZED SATIVA WITH EXCELLENT RESISTANCE AGAINST COLD AND MOLD.

Bangi Haze is one the most stabilized sativa hybrids in our collection. It is a fast flowering and easy to grow sativa that produces dense flowers, full of generous trichomes, with a sweet, floral, lemony and anisette aroma.

Strong stimulating Congolese sativa effect. Excellent choice for rainy and cold climates or for indoor growing.

Panama

THE GENUINE PANAMA RED ADAPTED TO MODERN INDOOR GROWING AND TEMPERATE LATITUDES.

Panama combines 3 excellent sativas from Panama. It is one of the most popular, powerful and high yielding sativas in our catalog.

Very elaborated hybrid of great potency and vegetative vigor. It produces beautiful, large, dense flowers full of trichomes, often showing reddish and pinkish pistils when flowering, traits usually associated with the mythic Panama Red and Colombia Punto Rojo strains.

Panama is probably the best American pure sativa hybrid bred in the last 15 years.

Its aroma and effect are reminiscent of the best Colombian and Panama Red sativas from the 70s.

Orient Express

SATIVA/INDICA HYBRID OF HIGH YIELD, SHORT FLOWERING AND WARM AND SOCIABLE HIGH.

Orient Express is a potent F1 hybrid that combines the high yield of aromatic and resinous flowers of our selected Vietnam Black mother, with the low height and short flowering time of our Chinese Yunnan indica.

One of our most popular varieties, which has been giving endless happiness to growers since the beginnings of ACE Seeds. Recommended for Asian sativa lovers with small gardens.


Remember, we are still one of the only seed suppliers stocking Rainbow Sorbet AKA Gelato (shown above). It's selling really well for us at the moment! We've also recently restocked a lot of strains that were out for a while, including plenty of The Cali Connection strains like Girl Scout Cookies and Green Crack.

Its chunky, resin-covered buds fill the room with pine and sour aromas inherited from its parent strains.

This strain has a great history behind it. From its beginning, Gorilla Glue #4 was created by Joesy Whales and Mardogg. It won the 2014 SoCal and the Michigan HighTimes Best Hybrid so, since then, it has been considered one of the best hybrid strains you can grow.

Introducing Greenpoint Seeds and Yekke Seeds

Today's post aims to introduce you to two relatively unknown seeds banks whose seeds we stock here at Mary's...

Read to the end to see promotions we're currently offering on Yekke Seeds!

Greenpoint Seeds

www.greenpointseeds.com

Greenpoint is a Colorado-based bank which specialises in making F1 hybrids using an elite male to multiple clone-only and elite females. 

We have recently added a range of Greenpoint seeds to our store and we're one of the only sites to stock the rare seeds from this bank.

Each Greenpoint strain in our store contains 'Polar Bear OG', which is a large yielding, highly potent version of OG Kush. Its specific heritage is OG #17 x (Hell’s Angels’ OG/Biker Kush) x The White/Triple Kush. You can tell the guys at Greenpoint like to use it when creating their hybrids.

At this moment in time we're stocking:

Monster Cookies is a mostly-indica hybrid with relaxing effects and plenty of influence from the Girl Scout Cookies lines. Expect stress and pain relief with a sweet, earthy aroma.

The stuff of legends, Bruce Banner #3 x Polar Bear OG is said to be a sativa-dominant strain from the dispensaries of Colarado. It was released in 2010 and quickly sold out, with many copycat strains then appearing and claiming to be the real deal. Still said to be sought after in Colarado, get your hands on this limited strain while we have it!

Bruce Banner is a great strain for inspiring creativity and providing a nice shot of euphoria before seguing into relaxation. OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel were used by Delta 9 Labs to create Bruce Banner. In terms of smell and taste you can expect plenty of diesel aroma and sweet undertones.

Golden Goat is said to be Island Sweet Skunk x Hawaii/Romulan.

Created by Josey Wales, Gorilla Glue #4 brings you huge calyxes full of resin which makes it great for extractions. Taste and smell is very rich and chocolatey.

 

Yekke Seeds

The second seed bank we'd like to highlight is Yekke Seeds, a small collective of growers and argronomists in Israel growing and preserving the very best genetics possible. Their main project for the past 4 years is the 'Golden Diesel'. From Yekke Seeds, we have:

An inbreed of Reservoir Seeds Chemdog x Sour Diesel at F4, bred with 3-4 fathers with a lot of emphasis of keeping a wide genetic pool for keeper selections.

Tall plants that likes to branch quite a bit and a lot of calcium and magnesium in the medium / feed. Likes a lot of light and is quite sensitive. Will perform well in a somewhat stable room. The buds are quite big with nicely shaped calyxes with a very diesel smell to almost all phenotypes. Fairly good mould resistance.

The high is clear and spacey with a nice punch to it. Barely no tolerance buildup and very very good for everyday - all day smoking.

Jilly Bean (Unknown Orange Skunk x Romulan x Cindy99BCGA) x Golden Diesel F3 (Chemdog x Sour Diesel)

TGA Jilly Bean was chosen for a candyshop pheno - deep candy smell, sedative high and super positive vibe and crossed with 3 Golden Diesel males to increase its potency and add a stronger head effect.

Jilly Bean x Golden Diesel got many different phenotypes to choose from, ranging in smell and taste from sour fruits to strawberries. Very good resin production contributing to a strong potency smoke.

Effects range from indica dominant chill type of high with high couch lock and munchies, to a perfect 50/50 indica - sativa mix that is very nice for all-day smoking and a sativa dominant type that is more active and psychedelic.

The indica dominant phenotypes are very nice for pain relief.

Psychedelic enjoyable high with medium to high potency. Tastes are mainly chem with phenotypes leaning to lemony chem and some to diesel, all with a lot of sour.

Average stink level, airy large buds that can get much purple. Tall bushy plants that usually require staking to keep the branches from falling over by the bud weight.

Lineage: SSSDH (Super Silver Haze x Sour Diesel) x Golden Diesel F3 (Chemdog x Sour Diesel)

The Flav (Romulan(BCGA) x Space Queen) x Golden Diesel F3 (Chemdog x Sour Diesel)

Flav mother was crossed with 3 Golden Diesel males. Flav is a very sweet citrus smelling and tasting plant that grows quite tall and bud up medium sized colas that are sticky and dense.

Some of the Flav is very strong with a super-positive high that is not too heavy. Golden Diesel is a brain pleasing inbreed of Chemdog x Sour Diesel with sour and chem smell and taste aiming for super-strong smoke with minimum tolerance buildup.

Flav x Golden Diesel is still under development - more information will follow soon.

Promotions

We're currently running a couple of promotions on Yekke Seeds.

The first is:

1x free Querkle x Golden Diesel for every 5 Yekke seeds ordered.

Querkle x Golden Diesel is a very rare strain, not even available to buy through our site.

The second promotion is:

With ANY Mary's Seeds order we're going to be giving away Yekke Seeds Clipper lighters, providing you mention it when completing your purchase - there's a little note box that comes up during checkout - just mention it in there!

Please note, this is only for UK customers only due to postage restrictions when shipping lighters overseas. We hope to have more promotions soon to cater for our overseas customers also.

Mary's Seeds offer the best prices around as well as a super fast service, and we aim to get our seeds sent out to you within the working day. If you ever happen to have any questions or queries regarding anything, please do not hesitate to contact us at marysseeds@gmail.com.

Introducing; Mephisto Genetics!

New to Mary's Seeds; Mephisto Genetics.
A group of breeders, dedicated to creating the very best feminised autoflowering strains around.

Relatively new to the market, Mephisto Genetics are making huge waves with their connoisseur grade genetics, and their incredible breeding ethos.
Mephisto are 3 guys from the UK; Mitch, Tim and Bill. Together, they are creating some of the best beans we've ever seen make their way into Mary's collection.
Bred using their combined years of knowledge, and dedicated hard work; Mephisto cut no corners to bring you fast flowering, high yielding, top shelf autoflowers.

In 2012, the Mephisto team took the plunge and moved their breeding programs out of the closet and into the fields! Though they may have upsized, the care and attention used in their breed methodology has only increased!

Mephisto breed all of their stock from scratch, no single-generation breeding of Lowryder autoflower with photoperiod over here; it's all back to the roots! Taking beloved photoperiod strains from photo to auto, one step at a time. 
First they grow out in-excess of 50 photo plants, selecting only a handful of the best. These are then further refined through another breeding period to guarantee only the most vigorous and high yielding plants are used.
After this stage they begin introducing the Autoflowering traits, the strains go through numerous extra breeding cycles that ensure genetic stability, and guarantee their seeds are the best. 
Some auto strains are known for their lower potency and yields, but not Mephisto. These extra steps ensure strains maintain the high THC and killer yields of their parents. Most strains in the Mephisto line-up with gift you with ATLEAST 1g for every 1cm of height the strain reaches!

All of Mephisto's seeds are created via hand pollination, no mass manufacturing, just care and attention at each step. Not only does this given them complete control over their breeding, but they never pollinate more than 50% of a seed bearing mother. This is to ensure it puts all of it's energy into creating the biggest, strongest beans around.
They pollinate earlier, and grow their plants out longer, to guarantee the maturity of their seeds.
All seeds are dried within the plants slowly for several weeks, separated, dried and then chilled until the highest germination rates occur with testing.

Many of their strains are several years in the making, and their work is a labour of love. Several of their offerings come from clone only strains, making for some of the rarest autoflowering strains in the business; and due to their limited runs, these seeds are in high demand!
Their range includes some of the best strains on the planet, turned auto!
Ever wanted to try Ghost Train Haze, but don't have the time to flower it out, or the experience for such a delicate strain? Mephisto's got your back, with their Fantasmo Express!
High THC Ghost Train Haze can now be yours in as little as 75 days from sprout, and with the ease of an Autoflower!

UK cannabis favourite, the big name in skunk; The Blues!; also known as Pukkas, Livers or even 'Sheffield Blues'.
Clone only by nature, this infamous strain will have found it's way into many of your baggies over the years, but never your tent...until now!
Auto Blues; Finishing in as little as 60 days from seed, she fattens up right before your eyes; expect big yields from this short auto. Topping in between a micro 35cm to 45cm, this is topshelf stealth genetics.

Since everything Mephisto does is hands on, small scale, and dare I say...artisan?! They have the freedom to be creative, and come up with some of the most 'out there' strains imaginable. Limited to sometimes as few as 200 seeds, Mephisto's limited editions are a must for any collector!
After heavy yields from a stealth sized plant? Their limited Deep Blue C is the one for you!
Topshelf flavour and high, without the wait? Grab some Tyrone Special before they are gone!

The rare genetics don't stop there. We're lucky enough at Mary's Cannabis Seeds, to have acquired some strictly not for sale, rare genetics;



- Sour Blues - Lip smacking twist on the classic Skunk
- Toof Decay x Ripley's OG - Bubblegum sweetness that's a beauty to behold.
- Blue Cuch - UK Blues meets Mephisto's Auto version the famous, Snoop named, Cuch!
- The White Train #2 - Experimental pheno of Mephisto's resin covered jewel; The White Train #1

    Mephisto Genetics limited edition strains at Marys Cannabis Seeds

    Eager to acquire these precious beans?
    All you have to do is buy Mephisto Genetics through Mary's Cannabis Seeds.
    For every 3 Mephisto seeds that make their way to your door, expect to see one free rare seed by their side.
    Buy a full pack of seeds, and receive 3 free limited editions!

    These limited edition seeds are only available while stocks last; if you have a preference for a certain strain please let us know before your order is posted, otherwise all limited freebies will be supplied at random.

    Tangie Ghost Train; Legend in waiting!

    The guys over at Rare Dankness Seeds and DNA Genetics have knocked it out of the park with this collaborative little number!

    Breeding two award winning strains, Tangie and Ghost Train Haze #1, under the name of 'Little Chief', we have here a strain preped and ready to become legend; Tangie Ghost Train.

    Tangie Ghost Train - DNA Genetics / Rare Dankness / Little Chief - Buy singles and packs cheap at Mary's Cannabis Seeds.

    A rapidly flowering, sativa-dominant hybrid with the very best properties of both parent strains; it's everything you could ask for.
    With vigorous growth, the plants can, and do, double during the flowering period! And with monster yields, this strain requires support when grown. The smell is another beast altogether; a powerful 'Tangie' citrus at the for front, with a diesel fuel chaser, elements of both 'Tangie' and 'Ghost Train Haze #1' shine through in this hybrid sativa. Flavours of rich tangerine dominate the pallet.

    Dripping in trichomes, the resin production of this strain is up there with some of the best hash strains.
    This sea of THC crystals is broken up by bright orange pistils, giving it great bag appeal. 

    High THC, massive taste and heavy yield; it's all right here!

    Truly a strain ready to go down in the history books as one of the greats.
    Stocks are extremely limited, so don't delay.

    A highly resinous strain, with plenty of 'frost' on it's sugar leaves and bud sites. Preferred growth is outdoors, with ideal temperature this strain can yield an impressive 1000g! Plenty of classic hashy bud.

    4. Black Jack by Sweet

    Adapted for indoors, this strain can produce high yields indoors.
    It's Black Domina heretage ensure a highly resinous plant, while the Jack Herer side delivers a potent high.

    3. Mazar x White Rhino by World of Seeds

    The Afghani/White Widow genes within the White Rhino deliver not only highly potent resin, but a bushier plant with more compact bud sites; meaning more buds per plant, and more resin!
    Couple this with the legendary Mazar I Sharif genes, and you'll need buckets to catch the resin bubbling off this strain!

    2. Time Wreck by TGA Subcool

    To say this strain has impressive parentage would be an understatement.
    By combining 2 already potent, resinous strains (Blood Wreck x Vortex), TGA Subcool has created an icy looking beast.
    With THC clocking in at a mighty 26.7%, and a low CBD of 0.1%, this train has no breaks! 
    Long sugar leaves create even more surface area for resin production, with resin spilling onto even the larger fan leaves.

    1. Apollo-13 BX by TGA Subcool

    Subcool must be doing something right, appearing twice on our list this fella knows how to push a strain to it's limits.
    Surprisingly not the highest yielded on our list (but still very high), this strain is about quality as well as quantity!
    Renown for it's 'Red Bubble Hash', this strain is best for connoisseur quality hash. A strong yet manageable high with great taste, it's the perfect pickmeup.

    What is 'in' Cannabis?

    A guide to Cannabis compounds and their medicinal & recreational benefits.


    It used to be that when most people thought of cannabis, it conjured images of a recreational plant.
    All that has started to change over the past 10 years, and has become ever more apparent this year.

    With more medical users than ever before, regulated sales, and more countries reforming their archaic drug laws, there is a higher demand to know;
    What is in cannabis?

    Cannabis (specifically the flower or bud) is made up of Cannabinoids & Terpenoids, each one having a variety of effects.
    Cannabinoids aren't exclusive to Cannabis (they're also found in breast milk, and no, you can't smoke milk), and Terpenes can be found everywhere with a strong odour, more on those later.

    Cannabinoids and Terpenoids


    Cannabinoids
    Cannabinoids make up the bulk of the recreational and medicinal effects of cannabis.
    They work by imitating 'endocannabinoids', a compound already present in the human body. These compounds all work hand in hand towards maintaining stability and good health with-in the human body.
    The manner in which they interact with the human body is so fluid and streamlined it has lead many to believe that our evolution coexisted along side that of the cannabis plant.

    THC (Δ8 & Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol)
    Lets start with the original star of the show! THC.

    THC creates the strong, psychoactive effects we all commonly associate with cannabis.
    Up until recently, THC was a heavy focus for breeders; for years they've been perfecting the perfect high.
    THC in noticeable dosages can be used to treat; pain, insomnia, nausea, stress and lack of appetite.

    But let's have a look at the lesser known puzzle pieces that make up this well loved plant.

     

    THCA & THCV (Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid & Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabivarin)
    Try saying that after a rip!

    The big brothers of THC; THCA & THCV, only occur in trace amounts in your garden variety strains, but they are responsible for much stronger, shorter highs.
    These tend to lead the energetic short highs, right before the heavier long lasting THC stone, but have fascinating medical properties!

    They help to reduce unwanted cell growth (think cancer and tumours) while increasing bone growth. Inhibit both spasms and seizures; and reduce appetite.

     
    Now we begin on the CB's. All the CB's are low to non-psychoactive, but that doesn't make them any less important.

    CBC (Cannabichromene)
    CBC, a trace element in the overall puzzle, but a key piece. CBC is primarily a calming cannabinoid, great for treating stress, anxiety and depression.

    But, like most of the building blocks of this beloved plant it has it's other uses, proving to be anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and stimulates bone growth.

    CBCA (Cannabichromic Acid)
    This is both anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory, only found in trace amounts, but every little helps right?

    CBD (Cannabidiol)
    Other than THC, it's likely that you'll have come across CBD before.

    Due to its large amounts present in cannabis CBD has been studdied in greater detail and we know a lot more about it; as a result some breeders have began work on CBD heavy plants, reducing the THC and aiming to create purely medicinal strains.
    Not only is it a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, it also combats the effects of THC.
    This is great for medical users, but for those looking for a truly 'strong' strain, they need to look for lower CBD levels when stacked up against the THC.

    (A plant with 22% THC might seam like a monster, but with a CBD level of 3%, a stronger high would come from a strain with 17% THC and a 0.01% CBD level)

    CBD is extremely soothing, and can aid in the treatment of anxiety, insomnia and stress.
    As well as aiding mental illness it has a profound effect on the physical body, showing great promise in treating pain, fitting, and shakes; it has already shown to reduce the suffering and debilitating effects of ailments such as arthritis, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.

    CBDV (Cannabidivarin)
    An anticonvulsant, this cannabinoid is know to reduce seizures and fits; 

    it's also a bone stimulant, making it great for those recovering from physical injury or recovering from the effects of an illness, or treatments such as chemotherapy.

    CBG & CBGA (Cannabigerol & Cannabigerolic Acid)
    Another trace cannabinoid, CBG is found to stimulate positive cell growth in both the brain and in bones. This, combined with its retarding of malignant cell growth, has lead researchers towards it's uses in treating many brain conditions, from accident recovery to brain disease.

    It's also anti-bacterial.

    CBL (Cannabicyclol)
    Exposure to light can convert CBC to CBL, while it retains most of its properties, some of the calming effects are reduced.

    CBN (Cannabinol)
    Normally found in trace amounts in cannabis, it's quantity increases as THC decreases. This means that by increasing the flowering time of the cannabis it's quantity can be increased.

    It's one of the main contributing factors towards that sedate, 'couch lock', feeling; this makes plants with higher concentrations great for treating insomnia and stress. It's also an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and is a great pain reliever. 


    Terpenoids (Terpenes)
    The easiest way to describe terpenes would be their use in many 'essential oils' and 'aroma therapy'.
    Many strong odours we associate with their relaxing, or uplifting effects; this is caused by their terpenes; but they also have medicinal effects too.

    Terpene knowledge isn't beyond the reach of the regular Joe though. Without the use of any equipment, other than your own nose, you can at least get a rough understanding of what medical effects lie with-in that baggy of yours.

    There are many terpenes; below we will discuss those with strong medicinal properties.

    Myrcene (Hoppy, Earthy, Green, Citrus, Fruity, Mango, Mint)
    The most prominent of the terpenes found in cannabis, Myrcene can be typically recognised in nearly all strains (though it appears in much higher concentrations within Indica strains)
    It has a strong sedative effect and is a very effective muscle relaxant; it's high levels in Indica strains have lead to their characteristic heavy stone.
    This also makes it an effective sleep aid.
    It also blocks the actions of many pro-mutagens, leading to decreased risk of tumours and cancer.

    Myrcene works in synergy with THC, widening the channels and aiding in the absorption of THC (and other terpenoids) by the brain.

    Myrcene can also be found in mangos, hops, lemon grass and East Indian bay trees. This is where the common believe that eating a mango before the use of cannabis will increase the high. It does work, but with fresh cannabis the myrcene levels are already quite high, so it's best to do this with older/lower quality cannabis (and only if cannabis use is legal where you are).


    β-Ionone (Floral, Berry)
    High anticancer activity and anti-fungal.

    a-Pinene (Pine needles)
    A pine like odour, also found in herbs such as rosemary and sage.
    It aid's in the transition of compounds through the blood barrier, and also widens airways. This means the cannabis compounds pass quicker and easier into the system and the brain, creating the 'rush' smokers have come to know.

    It promotes memory retention and alertness (great for treating ADD/ADHD) as well as aiding in the preventative loss and restoration of memory cells.

    To top it all off pinene is also anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial.

    Linalool (Lavender, Spice)
    The most powerful sedative of all the terpenes and highly potent in odor.
    It relaxes the muscles, lowering the frequency and intensity of spasms and shakes, 
    as well as reducing anxiety and stress.

    Linalool increases the activity and receptiveness of serotonin in the brain, combined with the above effects this creates a happy high, perfect for combating depression.


    β-Caryophyllene (Spicy, Woody, Black Pepper, Cloves)
    In high amounts it's known to lower blood pressure.
    It's also anti-inflammatory, aiding those with arthritis, and protects cells in the digestive lining, helping to reduce feelings of sickness and relieve IBS.


    Limonene (Tropical Fruit, Citrus)
    One of the most prevalent terpenes in cannabis stains, limonene is a bit of a wonder terpene.
    It works to protect the digestive linings, reducing acid reflux and stomach problems.
    Proven to fight cancer in lab tests, and destroy pathogenic bacteria such as tuberculosis. It's also know to improve mood, making it effective as both an anti-anxiety and an antidepressant aid.

    It shares Myrcene's ability to open the receptive barriers in the brain, increasing the effective medical uses of cannabis as well as increasing the high.
    Limonene and Myrcene can be found in high levels in lemongrass and very high levels in lemongrass oil (more than the amount found in 10 mangos in a single drop)

    It's also highly replant to insects and highly anti-fungal. Leading to 'Lemon' strains and their outdoor growing popularity.


    Bonus Terpenoids for growers
    If the germination of cannabis seeds is legal where you are, these terpenes have great characteristics to aid your crops.

    Citronellal (Lemon, Lime)
    Highly repellent against insects and very strong anti fungal.

    Nepetalactone (Cat Urine)
    Extremely strong insect replant, the most repellent of all terpenes found in cannabis strains. 

    Hopefully we've expanded you're knowledge of this great plant and given you all the info you need to educate others on our favourite wonder of nature.



    We have to give a huge shout out to 'Seaf0ur' over on the International Cannagraphic boards, for compiling research papers, and writing an extremely detailed and well informed post; from which we have created a, hopefully, easy to understand and accessible article.
