GENUS 40% SATIVA - 60% INDICA THC 4-8% FLOWERING INDOOR 55-60 DAYS HARVEST TIME OUTDOOR MID-OCTOBER TASTE OF CITRUS FRUITS INSID
The crew at Delicious Seeds set out to breed several medicinal-only strains with high levels of CBD for customers with medicinal needs.
It all started more than three years ago when we received the clone of an excellent strain called Carmen.
We looked into it straight away, grew it, harvested it and then smoked it to find that it has no psychoactive effects and doesn't get you high, yet tastes wonderfully intensely tangerine.
Since we cloned her when growing her, we flowered one of those clones, harvested it, and analyzed the buds using gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry. We determined a THC value of 8.5 and a CBD value of 12.5.
We were all very surprised and decided to delve further into this strain. So we immediately crossed our best strains with her and worked on every single cross.
We achieved our first major success with DEEP MANDARINE (DS32), a cross between Carmen and one of our internationally most renowned varieties, the ingenious SugarBlackRose.
The result is a plant that has exactly the same shape and structure as Sugar Black Rose (DS27), but with an intense taste and aroma of orange blossom. They are due to the large amount of terpenes in the plant, which are beneficial to health.
Of course, we couldn't possibly choose a different strain name, since the plant practically whispered it to us.
Analyzes done on all plants so far have revealed ratios of 1:1 to 1:3, and some even contained 4% THC and up to 15% CBD. This surprised us a lot, but also encouraged us to work with this strain to launch it in 2016.
