Solodiol CBD is the result of a very long and painstaking process to discover a cannabis strain with very high CBD production yet with almost no THC - less than 1% in fact. Elite Seeds have been producing CBD-rich strains for a while now but these tend to have near equal amounts of THC and CBD. This is a first in that CBD levels are sky high but the ultra-low levels of THC mean that there is no psychoactive effect whatsoever.
Solodiol CBD is an 80% sativa strain that is derived from a plant they called CBD Asia. It represented the holy grail of a plant that produced exceedingly high CBD without any inbred crossing to emphasise traits. It is a very hardy plant that grows with enormous vigour remaining quite a short, squat plant in the process. Flowering indoors takes 8 - 9 weeks while outdoor harvests will be ready in early October in the northern hemisphere. Yields of compact, resinous buds are high.
This is a very aromatic plant but one which is not psychoactive. CBD levels have been laboratory tested at 20% while THC is less than 1%. This represent s a CBD:THC ratio in excess of 26:1. The effect is of a very deep sensation of relaxation with no cerebral effects at all.

About Elite Seeds
Elite Seeds was founded in 2007 by a team of Spanish university graduates qualified in such subjects as plant genetics and breeding, agricultural science and biotechnology. With its own laboratory in the University of Valencia Science Park Elite Seeds is ideally positioned to pursue its particular interest to breed strains of cannabis that emphasise certain cannabinoids such as THC, CBD, THCV and CBDV which all have specific medicinal properties.
The scientific methods employed are underpinned by the founders' long-held dedication to cannabis especially with respect to cultivation, having opened Valencia's very first grow-shop, Kanopia, in 1999. The knowledge and understanding of its founders has resulted in the ability to create strains with specific cannabinoid profiles, some with high-THC for a potent psycho-active effect, high-CBD low-THC strains with no such effect or those with a balance of each to deliver a more calm and lucid effect.
High-THC strains include La Rica THC, Llimonet Haze THC, Mota Khan Afghani and Banana Joint. CBD-rich strains include Llimonet Classical CBD, La Rica CBD Auto, Llimonet Haze CBD Auto and Amnesia Ultra CBD.
Furthermore Elite Seeds is the first seed bank to develop strains with pretty much only CBD (Solodiol photoperiod and autos), a strain with high THCV and THC only (Novarine), one with only CBDV and CBD (Sedativa) and finally a strain with near equal ratios of THCV, THC, CBDV and CBD (Quatrovarin). With these exciting developments its medical marijuana programme is second to none.
All Elite Seeds come packed in attractive, collectable key-chain tins with various designs which are perfect for transporting and for storage as well as making excellent stash tins.
