This Chebarkul Siberian Ruderalis CBD Auto is a large and vigorous auto-flowering landrace with high resin production. In this strain's natural environment around Lake Chebarkul in Siberia, the locals use these semi-wild plants to make highly-flavoured, CBD-rich charas (hand-rubbed hashish). These landrace plants show great vigour, being both hardy and fast-flowering during the short growing season that they have. Plants can be grown in all climate types outdoors.
Siberian Ruderalis is most likely to have originated by a process of hybridisation between landraces from nearby Kazakhstan with the local Ruderal variety. This would account for its pungent citrus scent, high trichome production and the very mild psycho-activity of most resulting phenotypes.
Flowering starts after 2 - 3 weeks from germination, plants growing taller during flowering reaching between 120 - 190 cm. during their approx.12 - 14 week life cycle. Indoors 'topping' once or twice is recommended to control height. About 25% of plants will put on a colourful display of purple/mauve.
In order for these seeds to survive the harsh Siberian winters, where average January temperatures are -21°C, they are provided with a very thick, waterproof protective shell that prevents early germination before the Spring thaw is complete. Cold treatment, to mimic natural dormancy, or soaking and scarification is necessary for them to germinate correctly out of their natural environment. Khalifa includes extra seeds in the packs to allow growers to practise this technique.
These plants are adapted to thrive on poor, rocky soil, even more so than other landraces, requiring very low nutrient levels. Very light feeding in the second half of their cycle is all that's required. Yields are medium in size.
The scent/taste of Siberian Ruderalis is sweet, floral and citrus with pine and spice notes. CBD levels are between 4.5 - 9% while THC is very low at just 0.1 - 1%. The effect is mild, soothing and relaxing.
