Agree with your assessment that it's not just thc. My bet is you got a lot of cbg in there, though idk if that is responsible...So yesterday I was looking at buds - immature larf I cut off a couple weeks ago. Anyone who saw it would agree it's garbage - not many trichs and no smell. For shits and giggles I decided to smoke a bowl. I expected it would do nothing and was totally shocked by how powerful it was. How's it possible for immature garbage to get you higher than top shelf, covered in frost, mature buds?
I've known for decades that Colombian leaf makes super potent oil while indica leaves make garbage. I believe there is something besides delta 9 thc at work. IDK if its thcv, thcp, or something else- but I love it. Can't wait to try the mature buds in a couple months.
I use a kit from here btw. https://www.cannalyticssupply.com/Agree with your assessment that it's not just thc. My bet is you got a lot of cbg in there, though idk if that is responsible...
You may have seen i have been playing with thin layer chromatography....at home kits are fairly reasonable now. Might be interesting.
The last one I grew was in a terrible environment with 1000w mh. It made very potent loose buds that never really finished like it should. I know it never reached her potential-but the hybrid seeds did.Landrace Columbian was essentially all I grew, back in the 70s, with some Hawaiian thrown in now and then. I usually had to harvest in mid-November, in Connecticut, so I doubt I ever grew it to its full potential.
