Oh, there is flower that's just CBD without any THC at all. There are also strains that are mixes.

That's not it.
My guess is someone doesn't know any better and thinks they are going to get high. They're going to put a lot of work in to find that out.

I know that Charlotte's Web strain has like next to no THC iirc.

I'm surprised the DEA doesn't do strategic outdoor grows of hemp to ruin any illegal THC producing outdoor grows in a given area.

A drone releasing a few grams of pollen upwind is all you need to really F up a growers day, and yes, its been thought of before.

Oregon has had some issues with hemp growers being too close to THC growers since it's been legal to grow outdoors here.

I think they've generally worked it out as they have in the past with crops that could cross pollinate though.

That would require money and effort on their part.  They'd much rather bust dispensaries and just confiscate all their cash.  Although I don't know if they still bother playing that game or not now that recreational use is legal in a bunch of places now.

And yes, I know, the DEA considers all grows illegal at the federal level.

Critical Mass is usually a 1:1. A lot of older bud was closer to a 2:1 Thc:CBD ratio before the THC races. Charlotte's Web is an excellent strain. Anything bred from Cannatonic or ACDC is usually wonderful too. East Fork here in Oregon grows the best CBD bud I've ever had.

My late FIL did research on hemp. At the time it was still illegal here and it took him forever to get a permit to grow outdoors but he always enjoyed it when idiots would come by and help themselves to his crop. None of it contained any usable amounts of THCa (the gov't didn't care about CBD levels) but they still liked to steal the plants. Some of them were even potted in soils contaminated with heavy metals but they took those too despite the warning signs.

The funny part is that he had to continuously prove the accessions he worked with didn't produce THCa, so he did have a large bottle of "THCa Standard" that was used for comparison tests. This was in a cabinet in his lab, which would have been easier to steal than the actual plants. Of course the kind of people who end up stealing weed plants from a university research station likely aren't the brightest.

I got a great deal on pot.  I just bought a pound for $12 man !

Maybe a different photo loaded for me, but I didn't see ANY buds. The plants shown even looked as though they might be male.

Looks like the picture did change, but the story is the same.

?
I'm so confused. I spent the 80s smoking pot. And, I'm not seeing this whole CBD doesn't do that! It feels the same to me.
Hum? Maybe none of marijuana I ever smoked had much THC anyway?
Never mind they was apparently always ripping me off.
Little lying punks I went to school with.
