Royal THCV feminised was the result of crossing a pure African landrace strain with Durban Haze.Breeding was followed by a subsequent rigorous selection process to produce high levels of Tetrahydrocannabivarin (a.k.a THCV), a novel cannabinoid that is produced in equal proportions to THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) in this interesting new strain. THCV has special properties that are not only enrgising but appetite suppressing as well!
Royal THCV is a 95% sativa strain with the desired balance of THCV / THC at 7% each of these two cannabinoids. CBD content is sdecribed as being very low at less than 1%
This strain's growth pattern is typical of African sativas, tall and stretchy. For this reason it is better suited to cultivation outdoors although growers with some experience should be able to get good results indoors by vegging for a shorter period of time and then by training, pruning and carefully defoliating during flowering to control growth and expose bud sites to good light penetration.
Indoors, plants can be kept to a height of 80 - 120 cm. with flowering taking 9 - 10 weeks resulting in yields of 500 - 550 gr/m2. Outdoors, plants will grow to a height of 180 cm. or higher, being ready for northern hemisphere harvests in late October, making this a strain for regions with long summers and good early autumn weather. Yields are about 425 - 475 gr/plant.
Royal THCV has an earthy, herbal and fruity taste and an uplifting effect that offers both clarity and a high degree of motivation. Therapeutically, THCV has been shown to act as an appetite suppressant as well as helping to curb tremors associated with Parkinson's disease, relieving anxiety, inflammartion and pain.
