    Any of you fellow farmers know of a cut named Harlequin? Very High levels of CBD. Hoping to use in a breeding project. ANY info on this cut would be of great help.

    Peace

    interesting about centennial. Heard some not so positive grow reports on another site and people know. However if the price is right it might be worth a try. good looking out.

    Thanks we got cannatonic Harlequin, and another high cbd variety in seed coming soon.

    I will report on all as things progress

    Peace

    Marijuana dispensary to give out high-CBD strain seeds and clones for free
    By William Breathes Wed., Feb. 27 2013 at 4:20 P

    Elite cannabis genetics aren't shared with just anyone who asks for them. Growers pride themselves on holding certain rare strains close -- and dispensaries have been known to hoard them. For these reasons, you don't often see anyone freely distributing clones of hard-to-find strains. So it's surprising (and refreshing) to see a dispensary not only making a rare, medically beneficial strain available to the community, but to do so without charge.
    Denver-based Greenwerkz medical marijuana dispensary has been touting R4, its CBD-rich strain, for years now, and with good reason. Unlike its cannabinoid counterpart THC, which is known for the "high" associated with marijuana, CBD has been found to alleviate pain with few to no mind-altering effects. While a high CBD amount for a normal strain would be up to 3 percent by weight, R4 has consistently clocked in at between 14 and 20 percent CBD. Not only that, but it also has ultra-low THC -- at times lower than 1 percent.
    But getting the strain -- both in clone and seed form -- comes with stipulations: The genetics can't be resold (only gifted); any strains created using R4 have to be available to Greenwerkz; and, most notably, the finished buds can't be sold for more than $15 an eighth.
    "We believe that this strain provides wonderful attributes to both patients and growers," says Kelly Roller, Greenwerkz vice president of cultivation. "We have had many patients who come in just for the R4. It really does provide a lot of patients pain relief without the cerebral/psychoactive 'high' typically associated with cannabis, and we wanted to share that with the community."
    I checked out Greenwerkz back in July 2011specifically to see how the already well-known R4 would ease chronic back pain I was experiencing at the time. My take? While the strain isn't the most beautiful belle at the ball, she sure knows how to dance.
    "The report from Full Spectrum Labs showed that it was 14.55 percent CBD and less than 1 percent THC, just a hair over what can be found in industrial hemp plants," I wrote. "For all I know, this could be from an industrial hemp plant, as Carstens didn't give any hints to its lineage. It had leafy, underdeveloped-looking buds -- though I've never seen this cut or anything related to it with which I can compare it, so maybe that's just how it grows. Very waxy-feeling, and under the scope you can see globs of plant resin on the teeny, tiny dark-green sugar leaves. It smelled like a hemp shirt when broken up, and the taste wasn't much better. But taste aside, the CBD content is noticeable within five minutes of smoking a hefty bowl. Without a doubt, it helped ease my back pains, especially at night, when lately I've been jolted out of sleep by searing nerve pinches."
    Greenwerkz folks ask anyone interested in the strain to contact them at info@greenwerkz.com or stop by their booth at the High Times Cannabis Cup over the 4/20 weekend. They say the strain should be ready to roll out by April.

    R4 ultra-high CBD, non-psychoactive strain to become “open source”

    R4 ultra-high CBD, non-psychoactive strain to become “open source”
    Denver, CO Feb. 13, 2013
    Greenwerkz, a Colorado cannabis company, today announced the release of their leading CBD strain, named the R4, will be available for both patients and the medical marijuana community beginning next month, free of charge.
    Their program will allow patients as well as medical marijuana centers to grow the R4 for patients under the following conditions:
    • The strain, in its natural form, is not resold as seed or clone form but may be freely given away to others
    • The end product, in bud form, is not sold for more than $15 per eighth
    • Any strains created by hybridizing the R4 would be available to Greenwerkz in clone form free of charge.
    The R4 has recently been tested at over 20% assayable CBD and less than 1% THC content by weight and Greenwerkz has made concentrated forms testing over 79% CBD.
    “We believe that this strain provides wonderful attributes to both patients and growers.” said Kelly Roller, Greenwerkz’ VP of Cultivation. “We have had many patients who come in just for the R4. It really does provide a lot of patients pain relief, without the cerebral/psychoactive ‘high’ typically associated with cannabis, and we wanted to share that with the community”, Roller added.
    High CBD strains have been shown to treat chronic pain and conditions associated with tremors as well as provide appetite stimulation which can be critical to treatment and recovery.
    Please visit Greenwerkz table at the upcoming Cannabis Cup for information packets and R4 seeds as well as the website www.greenwerkz.com for more information as the program rolls out.

    Here is some info from a little bit back

    R4 -- 14.55 percent CBD, 0.59 percent THC.
    The Greenwerkz centers in Denver and Edgewater are the only shops that carry this amazingly rare and potent strain. There's almost no THC whatsoever to this plant, the genetics of which remain a mystery. My first thought was that the cut wasn't anything special or unique -- until I touched the nuggets. The buds left a waxy, soapstone-like feeling on my fingers, possibly due to the shiny, resinous sap coating the sugar leaves of the tiny popcorn nuggets. I was less than impressed by a cut of this back in July, when Ireviewed GreenWerkz; what seemed to be a less-than-mature flower produced a rough smoke with a complete lack of smell or taste. When I visited the shop again, though, I brought home a much better sample. It broke up with a light, grape-Kool-Aid scent, and while the flower burned on the harsh side, it left a buttery-thick ganja taste in my mouth and heavy, stinky smoke in my office. The budtender nailed it when she said that this strain leaves you with a "rubbery body" after a couple of bowls. The potent CBD blast gives this cut a strong sedative effect, helping not only pain, but the anxiety that can come with it. It gave me droopy eyes and a Valium-strength body numbness that eased me into a heavy, restful sleep.

    Harlequin -- 13.65 percent CBD, 6.03 percent THC
    Harlequin isn't as rare as the R4; a few growers create the cut, and it can be found at shops around the country. But Boulder's Flower of Life had a flower that tested the highest so far -- and it was on the shelf the day I stopped in. Astonishing, rust-colored pistils (hairs) coated the bud like fur; with a scope, it was easy to see the delicate crystal trichomes that give this bud its extra THC boost. The combo of old-school Colombian, Thai and Swiss landrace mixed with a Nepalese indica had sticky pockets of amber resin on the green sugar leaves left behind in trimming, and the bud was thick and dense. Breaking it up left a greasy film on my fingertips and created a lavender smell that left a floral scent lingering around my desk as I twisted up a little joint. There was nothing outstanding about the taste, but halfway through the doob, I could feel my spinal column go from al dente to soggy noodle. Compared with the R4, the added THC boost created an almost foggy buzz to start with, then a classically stoned feeling for about two hours after. This was a go-to cut the other night, when stomach cramps got the best of me and all I needed was some pain relief and sleep. The shop has also harnessed the CBD power of the strain for edibles and a concentrate, Harlequin Hope, that, at 39.35 percent, tested out the third-highest for CBD that Full Spectrum's lab has seen.

    Luca Brasi -- 8.44 percent CBD, 10.93 percent THC
    The Clinic hasn't had the cut of Bubba Kush that took home the CBD award at the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup last April on its shelves for some time -- but this Luca Brasi is the next best thing. A cross of that award-winning, 12.35 percent CBD Bubba Kush cut and Corleone OG Kush, back-crossed with the Bubba Kush, brought this powerhouse of a CBD cut to the table. Coming in at 8.44 percent CBD and 10.93 THC, this is one of the most equally balanced and overall potent cuts around town. A very strong, rubbery kush scent cut with an underlying organic-soil earthiness left my hands smelling like I'd been digging in the garden all day. The taste matched the smell perfectly, making it a pleasant puff as well as potent medication. Much more uplifting and buzzy due to the higher THC content, the strain was good for numbing the pain without knocking me down for the count. Actually, the herb had me feeling uplifted and active even after a big bowl, without any tension or anxiety, thanks to the decent THC levels. It was also good at calming nerve pain in my stomach and easing cramping after a less-than-quality street-taco session. Clinicstaffers promise that the award-winning Bubba Kush will be back, but in the meantime, this is a perfectly suitable alternative.

    Purple Diesel CO2 oil -- 35.3 percent CBD, 40.26 percent THC
    Flowers aren't the only way to smoke or vaporize your meds, and concentrates can offer the most bang for your buck when it comes to pain-relieving CBD. Somehow this cut, with her sativa-strong genetics, gave the growers at Kind Love some of the highest CBD levels of any of their plants -- and the resulting hash oil ranked fifth-highest for CBD concentrate on the Full Spectrum list, behind two types of CBD from Telluride, Harlequin Hope from Flower of Life, and a Bubblegum Kush BHO from Boulder's Project Greenergy. When we tested it, this Purple Diesel CO2-extraction was the highest-potency CBD hash oil available on the Front Range. It was nowhere near as sputtering and watered-down as CO2 extractions often are; the oil had a jelly-like consistency that bubbled and melted when gooped on top of a bowl of flowers. Although there was not much taste beyond a bland, hashy finish, the kick it provided to the bowl full of flowers was noticeable within minutes. It also burned when smoked by itself on a red-hot titanium skillet, though too much left my fine motor skills shot, and typing was damn near impossible for a half hour. But lower doses were enough to end eye pressure, body pressure, lower-back nerve pressure and pretty much the sense of anything pressing in life whatsoever.

    Cannatol Pills -- 7.95 mg CBD
    This Project Greenergy product is a pill, so there's really nothing to review with regard to smell or anything like that. When I cracked open a Cannatol pill and tried out some of the coconut-oil-based liquid, it tasted way better than the bland pill itself. So you don't get that flavor benefit when you swallow one of these buggers; instead, you may just enjoy some hash-tasting burps for an hour or so. Still, it does the job. I ate one first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, and while one was enough to give me the floaties for an hour or so and put me in a pleasant (and talkative) mood, I think two would be a more appropriate dose for pain relief or more serious ailments.

    Hey guys.. I'm new here. Based in LVNV. Have do my med card so legal to grow a few plants. My question is where can order quality seeds?? I found a handful of places on a Google search but not sure which are legit. Examples: http://www.potseed.net/seedlist.html http://yourseedshop.net/seedshop.html There are a few that operate out of the UK but not sure that they will mail to me. At the moment I'm looking for Harlequin, Charlotte's Web or R4. Clones would be great but doubt that can happen in my location. Feel free to drop me a PM.. Appreciate the help!!
