Feminized Hemp Seed

ABACUS 2.0™

Abacus 2.0

OG x Purple Urkle x Hemp

Our Abacus 2.0™ is one of the most desirable smokable hemp cultivars on the market. After years of genotype selecting, Abacus 2.0™ feminized hemp seed is finally available. This cultivar has a unique terpene profile as compared to all of the hemp cultivars currently on the market. It has a true OG terpene profile which is especially nice for smoking. Because Abacus 2.0™ is a vertically growing hemp strain, we recommend some additional spacing if you’re growing for smokable flower production. Abacus 2.0™ is a proprietary strain, please contact us about licensing agreements.


This cultivar consistently test between 10-16% CBD and well below .3 THC


ABACUS EARLY BIRD™

Abacus Early Bird

We recommend our proprietary Abacus Early Bird™ feminized hemp seed for our large-scale agricultural hemp farmers. If you are looking for a fast-growing, large flower-producing cultivar that can be harvested early, Abacus Early Bird™ is for you. This cultivar is not an auto-flower strain, which typically tend to stay small, but instead a vigorous growing strain which not only allows you to harvest early, but maximizes your yield per acre. Furthermore, depending on location, Abacus Early Bird™ can potentially get you multiple harvests per year. In 2018, we harvested on Aug 24th (in Colorado) and yielded over 1.5 lbs. per plant. This was from seed sown directly into the ground. Abacus Early Bird™ produces flower that has minor cannabinoids CBDV and CBC which comes out to be almost 5% in the extracted oil. This is a vertical strain which can be row cropped. Based on past success, growing large-scale outdoor, we recommend planting up to 10,000 - 15,000 plants per acre.


This cultivar consistantly test between 10-14% CBD and well below .3 THC

ABACUS EARLY BIRD 2.0™

ABACUS EARLY BIRD

This proprietary cultivar is our Abacus Early Bird™ back crossed into our Abacus 2.0™. Bred to provide the stable and unique terpene profile of the Abacus 2.0™ combined with the vigorous growth of the Abacus Early Bird™. The Abacus Early Bird 2.0™ was developed to be a smokable or full spectrum oil hemp cultivar. What is the difference between the Abacus Early Bird™ and the Abacus Early Bird 2.0™? The Abacus Early Bird™ is for large scale production of CBD and other minor cannabinoids whereas the Abacus Early Bird 2.0™ should be grown more for boutique smokable flower or full spectrum oil, where the unique terpene profile is essential.


This cultivar consistently test between 10-20% CBD and well below .3 THC


CHERRY ABACUS™

CHERRY ABACUS

Original Cherry crossed with our own Abacus™ that we bred in 2016. Out of 2000+ plants we selected two genotypes with the best terpene profile and continued to breed these together to stabilize the cultivar. Imagine the strong Cherry essence combined with the wild berry smell of the Abacus™. This is the personal favorite of the team for smokable hemp strains. Cherry Abacus™ is more of a vertical grower, therefore we recommend planting the seed at 5000-7000 plants per acre.


This cultivar consistently test between 10-18% CBD and well below .3 THC

FEMINIZED SEEDS EXPLAINED

Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD from hemp is now federally legal. This is a huge opportunity for farmers looking to increase their revenue without expanding their land. Of course, because CBD comes from cannabis (in this case, hemp) flowers only, the best way to increase revenue is by growing female-only (a.k.a. feminized) hemp seeds.


Feminized hemp seeds grow into plants. Plants, like all living things, must reproduce. They do this either asexually (single-celled organisms) or sexually (those that require both male and female genetics to produce offspring). Hemp CBD represents the latter. 


New generations of hemp are born from the fertilized seeds of their parents. Generally, these seeds have a 50 percent chance of growing into a male plant and a 50 percent chance of turning out female. The thing is, male plants don’t produce the high volume of therapeutic compounds like CBD that their sisters do. In fact, the highest concentrations of cannabinoids come from the female hemp flower. Moreover, the highest levels of CBD come from unfertilized female hemp CBD flowers – once fertilized, females lose much of their potential potency. And, because a male can fertilize thousands of females, letting the girls hang with the boys is not recommended.


Now, thanks to advanced seed-breeding techniques, there is no need for growers to cultivate male plants only to toss them later. Instead, they can buy quality feminized hemp seeds from a reputable hemp seed distributor to save time and money and witness a significant return on their hemp seed investment.


If it were up to Mother Nature, every seed would have an equal opportunity to become either male or female. However, thanks to advances in cannabis seed production, breeders can now manipulate mature female plants into producing seeds without any males at all. The seeds produced through this process contain no male chromosomes and therefore produce no male plants.


The practice of creating female-only seeds is called masculinization. This process uses specialized solutions of colloidal silver or silver thiosulphate to stress the female into producing seeds. Note that after treating plants with either of these solutions, the plants, themselves, are no longer fit for consumption.



WHY USE FEMINIZED HEMP SEEDS 

Commercial hemp cultivation is a considerable investment. In addition to the cost of tools, supplies, and labor, farmers must also purchase the seeds to get the whole thing going. It would be a shame after such an investment to either toss half the crop or risk reduced product quality. However, by growing only feminized hemp seeds, farmers can:  


  1. Save money on lost plants (and lost potency) .
  2. Use space more efficiently by only cultivating the plants they want
  3. Reduce labor by omitting the de-seeding process.
  4. Maintain full control of the plants’ genotype.
  5. Improve over-all value to benefit themselves, their distributors, and their stakeholders.


When it comes to hemp plants, gender is definitely not equal. In fact, the most successful hemp CBD farms take special care to cultivate only the finest female hemp plants. They do this by purchasing quality feminized hemp seeds such as those offered by HempSeedFlorida.


Our seeds come from only the best hemp genetics and regularly test well below the minimum .3 percent THC threshold. We are passionate about hemp CBD and proud of the community of which we are part.
