Sourcing CBD-rich hemp clones can be a difficult undertaking due, in no small part, to the preponderance of fly-by-night operations that have cropped up in the wake of the 2018 Farm Bill. Procuring low-THC hemp plants requires finding a reliable and experienced farmer with proper facilities and growing methods.
Federal law prohibits industrial hemp from containing more than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis, so discrimination is key when considering the parentage of your clones. You will want clones derived from the cuttings of an indica-dominant hybrid.
The following steps should put you on the right track and make clear why Industrial Hemp Farms is a consummate source for flawless CBD-rich hemp clones.
CONSIDER THE MARKETPLACE
Kentucky was once the greatest producer of American hemp in the 20th century with thousands of acres of hemp in production. With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, farmers have been able to put the Bluegrass State back on the map.
Hemp production has grown rapidly in Kentucky over the last year and the financial potential is virtually limitless. Each acre of hemp plants is worth a minimum of $60,000. With more than 50,000 acres of Kentucky land approved for hemp production in 2018 alone, it is obvious that figures will soar in the fiscal year ahead.
With the warm weather in full swing, now is the time for Kentucky growers to get their hands on top shelf high-CBD hemp clones.
KNOW YOUR MOTHER
Understanding genealogy is vital to yielding a prosperous CBD hemp crop. All too many online sources for industrial hemp provide scant details when it comes to the lineage of their CBD clones.
Here at IHF, we never keep our customers in the dark about anything. Instead, we firmly comprehend what makes for upper-echelon CBD hemp clones and go out of our way to impart this wisdom on all who do business with us. The mother plants and mini-mothers used to produce our CBD hemp clones are carefully chosen for their many unique characteristics, all of which are considered on an individual basis before, during and after the initial growth phase.
We always ask ourselves the same questions you should be asking yourself when growing your crop. What are the dominant terpenes of our CBD hemp plants? What cannabinoids will be present? How strong will these CBD hemp clones be? Are they better for indoor or outdoor implantation?
These and several other factors are kept in mind throughout growth, preliminary light exposure and rooting. They are also factors you will want to think about prior to choosing one of our CBD hemp clones.
Kentucky hemp farmers would do well to follow this paradigm when cultivating their hemp clones. Rooting is key to a successful crop as are growing applications.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR CLONES ROOTS
A hemp clone’s rooting environment is an essential factor when sourcing industrial hemp. As with any plant in the cannabis family, CBD hemp plants need sufficient humidity and warm temperatures in order to thrive.
This is why you will want to maintain your clones in an appropriately outfitted facility with plenty of heat ((>90% humidity at approximately 25 degrees Celsius). Hemp clones need at least 18 hour photoperiods with light intensity fastidiously calibrated and monitored. For the best results, your facilities should be equipped with sprayers that can keep a fine mist on your hemp clones’ leaves a minimum of twice daily.
Once cuttings have been rooted, the acclimatization period should allow the plant to slowly adjust to full light exposure and less humid conditions. This is the kind of information which is vital to growing strong, mature and healthy CBD-rich hemp clones. If a company does not share such information with you, they are unlikely to be legit.
IS IT LEGIT?
Last but not least, when you are searching for CBD hemp clones, you want to look for a farm whose industrial hemp is certified. Do a little digging and see if they are a company in good standing with Hemp Partners and/or HFA (Hemp Farmers Association). This reflects their reputation and legitimacy.
When sourcing CBD hemp clones in Kentucky, you will invariably come across companies that outsource their plants from third parties. That is never the case with us. Industrial Hemp Farms’ wholesale clones are developed in-house using cutting edge technology, all-natural recycling and internet-based solutions to achieve optimal results.
When you’re dealing with us, you’re dealing with a friendly, knowledgeable source for renewable crops and top notch genetics.
