Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, our seeds are feminized. Our science team has spent years developing protocols using Silver Thiosulfate (STS) that consistently produce 99.9% female plants in our seed batches. We use qPCR testing to confirm our male:female ratio for every seed batch we produce. We also sell the spray used to create feminized seeds if you are interested in creating feminized seeds yourself. We produce it in house to the same proven strength we use ourselves and we also provide our spray protocol to make sure you have great results with your project.

Since 2017 when we received our hemp permit, we have taken every step possible to ensure we were selling products that we can be proud of. We never rush to market because we are in this industry for the long haul. We care deeply about the success of our customers and how we treat them. We would not be selling something if we did not feel we could stand behind it 100%.
The germination rate of every batch of seed we produce is third party tested by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture Seed Lab. The rate is usually around 95% and we always ship extra seed to make sure you get the number of plants that you paid for.
The pollen sacs, if any, that you might find on your plants from feminized seed will not be as prolific as true male plants and thus will not release as much pollen. This will not ruin your entire crop. Males will begin to show themselves a week or two before female plants start to flower. We do however suggest that you walk your fields in late July and early August so that you are able to catch any males and remove them from the field. Whether you are growing for smokable flower or biomass it is always preferable for your flower to be seedless. In an indoor or greenhouse setting you will only need to look for males for a week or so after you turn your grow lights to 12/12.
Yes absolutely. North Carolina has been testing Total THC since 2017 and our variety has consistently passed the pre-harvest THC compliance testing. The timing of this test is important and should be done around week 3 or 4 of flowering. We have been growing hemp since 2017 and have seen and personally grown over 50 high-CBD varieties. Every single one of those varieties has the potential to go hot towards the end of flowering. If someone tells you otherwise there is a good chance they are lying to you. Trust us, we have purchased said seeds each year to try and find the golden goose that tests under .3 total THC at maturity but every one has been a lie. We will not sink to those levels. The only plants that we have found to test under .3 at full maturity are CBG dominant varieties. Click here to check out our CBD and CBG Selections.
Great question. Read our blog post that breaks down this question in full detail.

We have been involved with NCSU variety trials since 2018 as well as conducted our own trials in our greenhouses. We have a comprehensive understanding of what’s available on the market. We only release varieties after extensive testing to make sure we have some of the best performing varieties on the market.
In 2018, our BaOx won 1st place for highest CBD content in the Selectors Cup. In 2019, The head agronomist with Pyxus who oversaw 1,000 acres of production spread out across multiple states said our BaOx was the best performing by all metrics. Currently, North Carolina does not even test BaOx in most instances because it has so consistently passed THC compliance testing.
For the 2021 season we are pleased to announce we will be releasing 7 new lines especially selected for their strong terpene profiles, unique color or CBG dominance.

Top flower testing, while it can show large numbers like 23% CBDa, is not representative of average CBD numbers. If your top flowers test at 23% CBD you should expect a steady drop in percentage as you go down the plant. The same goes for CBG.
We do not buy biomass. We are solely focused on providing the best genetics in seed and live plant form that we can to hemp growers. We do try to connect growers to buyers whenever the opportunity is there. We encourage all growers to try and have backup plans in case your first buyer falls through.
We have sold plants to states ranging from California to North Dakota to Florida to Maine and even Puerto Rico. When plants are grown well we see very little difference in yield, cannabinoid content, or pest and disease prevalence.
