Seedsman CBG #1 is a photo-period strain which has been specially bred to produce very high levels of CBG (Cannabigerol), a cannabinoid which is usually present in low concentrations in typical cannabis samples.
CBG (cannabigerol) is the non-acid form of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) which itself is the pre-cursor to the three main cannabinoid lines tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). Through the action of UV light or heat enzymes in the cannabis plant break down CBGA and in the majority of strains it is converted into either THCA and CBDA. It logically follows that the higher the CBG the lower the THC and CBD levels and vice versa.
CBG is very interesting as it is thought to offer great medical potential. It lowers intra-ocular pressure thereby helping to treat cases of glaucoma. Early research reveals promise as an anti-bacterial, it inhibits colo-rectal cancer cells in mice, has been shown to protect neurons in mice with Huntingdon's Disease, it has also been shown to increase appetite in rats and it reduces inflammation in cases of Crohn's Disease.
Seedsman CBG#1 grows in all environments, indoors, outdoors and in a greenhouse. Its indoor flowering time is between 10 - 12 weeks with yields expected to be between 400 - 500 gr/m2. Outdoors, northern hemisphere harvests will be ready towards the end of September - early October with each plant capable of producing up to 350 gr. Colourful displays of purple will affect some plants towards the end of flowering especially in the presence of cool night-time temperatures. Flavours are tangy, from the terpene limonene, with berry notes.
N.B. It is very important to germinate CBG #1 seeds at a constant temperature of 80° Fahrenheit (26-27° Celsius) for optimum viability. Avoid temperature swings and fluctuations.

One of the most trustworthy and professional seed banks in today’s industry, here at Seedsman, we have over a decade of experience in selling quality products at a very reasonable price.
Our initial concept was to help expert breeders package, market and sell their cannabis seeds. We are not - and have never claimed to be - breeders ourselves, but we do work very closely with our suppliers in order to maximise the exposure of their high quality inbred, hybrid and landrace cannabis strains.
Our cannabis seeds have come from pioneering breeders, some who prefer to remain nameless and others who are known worldwide for the quality of their breeding. Sacred Seeds and Sam the Skunkman are our most famous suppliers. The huge breeding programme helped to create seminal marihuana strains such as Skunk #1 and Original Haze.
As well as mass hybrid cannabis strains with mass market appeal, we are also very keen to maintain high quality landrace strains, as we see these as the fundamental genetics in cannabis evolution.
In 2007, we launched the Seedsman Feminised cannabis seeds range, which was put together from strains created by breeders we had befriended in previous years. We have kept the number of strains to a minimum so that we can maintain the highest quality possible. Each strain offers a unique taste, and importantly, growth characteristics which display each strain’s individual genetic make-up.
In 2011, we introduced our Autoflowering Feminised strains which, like all cannabis seeds under the Seedsman brand, offer great quality at a very reasonable price.
