Where and how the CBG and CBD flowers are grown and harvested can have a significant role on the potency, flavor, and appearance of the hemp plants. State laws legalizing the production of hemp have afforded more options for a hemp cultivator, and in Oregon, we can offer hemp products of each kind.

We work with more than 15 farms, mostly located nearby us in Southern Oregon. We also have our own small hemp farm to provide high quality greenhouse flower with unique hemp genetics. We are strong believers in regenerative farming and sustainable practices. If you’re a farm looking to work with us or a wholesale hemp buyer looking for direct from farm prices, check out our hemp marketplace.

Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill classified hemp (or cannabis with less than 0.3% delta-9 THC) as an ordinary agricultural commodity under federal law. Hemp is a legal product across the United States, and we can ship CBD hemp direct to your location (except Idaho).

We’re located in Southern Oregon and licensed by the Oregon Department of Agriculture. All of our CBD flower is sourced from small American family farms. We have a variety of products including: CBD flower, CBG flower, CBD cigarettes, and CBD joints. With more than 20 hemp strains, we source the highest quality outdoor, greenhouse, and indoor flower.

Plain Jane offers the widest variety of new products in the CBD industry like CBG and CBD-rich hemp flowers, CBD oils, CBD cigarettes, buds, accessories and more. For those seeking the recommendations of hemp products for therapeutic purposes, we are not medical professionals and do not suggest strains or products to treat a serious medical condition and would direct you to seek a doctor’s advice. However, we can make recommendations and point customers in the right direction when it comes to flavor, prices, and which products contain higher concentrations of cannabidiol.

The best way to grow hemp plants depends on the strain, and the CBD industry is continuing to perfect cultivation practices to provide a wider variety of quality products. Ask us to learn more about which form of hemp product will best meet your needs, flavor preferences, and budget.

A hanging mesh drying rack is only one option for your drying needs.

The vegetative phase is also where you begin monitoring the sex of your plants and then remove and destroy the males as soon as you identify them. If you have access to female clones, this step isn’t necessary, but it will be if you grow cannabis from seeds. You can check out our guide to sexing your plants here. Again, this is a step you need to take when growing from regular seeds. If you use feminized seeds you can be nearly 100% certain that all of your plants are female (1 in 1000 feminized seeds may turn out male).

The flowering stage is when your cannabis plants will develop their buds. Again, if you choose to grow from “regular” seeds, you’ll change up the light cycle from the 18-6 you used in veg to a 12-12 cycle (12 hours on and 12 hours off up until harvest); autoflowering varieties won’t require this change as again, they flower when they are mature enough.

Before You Purchase

Genetics is just a fancy word for your seeds, and that’s what you need if you want to grow cannabis from seeds! The term can also refer to cannabis clones, but for the beginning grower, seeds are much easier to source. If you are interested in starting from clone stock, you can generally purchase them from a qualified local grower, assuming there are no laws against clone sales in your jurisdiction.

More than likely, you’ll be growing indoors in a grow tent and in soil. There are a variety of media types available including soil, peet, and coco. We recommend soil for the beginner, but whichever you choose it’s important not to skimp on the media. Spending a little extra money on your media will pay off in terms of cannabis quality and help you avoid problems such as pests, unbalanced pH, and poor nutrient delivery. You can see a few recommended soil and other media products here.

But even though you can grow cannabis without any special equipment, there’s an advantage to spending a little money on the right equipment. Industry experts are constantly improving their products which in turn help produce higher cannabis yields and a better flower. So today, as part of our mission to educate and provide valuable information, we’re going to go through each stage of your cannabis grow and highlight some of the equipment that can help you maximize your harvest.

With proper temperature and humidity control, you’ll be able to dry your cannabis in the same space you grew it. Most growers I’ve spoken with dry for a minimum of one week and often up to 10-14 days. There are a number of drying racks available that will allow you to spread out your buds for even drying. If you choose to dry trim, you’ll do this after drying but before curing.

Flavonoids may also modulate the pharmacokinetic of THC, via inhibition of the hepatic P450 enzymes (3A11 and 3A4) (McPartland and Russo, 2001; Russo, 2011).

Terpenes, along with cannabinoids, have successfully been used as chemotaxonomic markers in Cannabis, as they are both considered as the main physiologically active secondary metabolites (Fischedick et al., 2010; Elzinga et al., 2015). When grown in standardized conditions, a significant and positive correlation was found between the level of terpenes and cannabinoids (Fischedick et al., 2010). This may be explained by the fact that mono- and sesquiterpenes are synthesized in the same glandular trichomes in which the cannabinoids are produced (Meier and Mediavilla, 1998). This association was, however, not confirmed on a larger panel of samples coming from different origins (Elzinga et al., 2015).

Biosynthetic Pathways Leading to the Different Classes of Terpenes

In Cannabis THCA is accumulated in the heads (glands) of both capitate-stalked and capitate sessile trichomes, but in the former the content is higher (Mahlberg and Kim, 2004). Notably, in the textile variety, the cannabinoids CBDA and CBCA occur at high concentrations instead of THCA, while the reverse is true for drug strains (Mahlberg and Kim, 2004).

Numerous chemicals are produced in hemp through the secondary metabolism. They include cannabinoids, terpenes and phenolic compounds (Flores-Sanchez and Verpoorte, 2008) and will be further described in the next sections. Although the pharmacological properties of cannabinoids have extensively been studied and are the most recognized hemp bioactives, the other components have no reasons to envy them, as they have also been associated with potent health-promoting properties. Research on Cannabis phytochemicals, as well as the widespread therapeutic use of Cannabis products, has been limited due to various reasons, including illegality of cultivation (due to its psychoactivity and potential for inducing dependence), variability of active components, and low abundance of some of them in planta. Further attentions is now drawn toward non-THC Cannabis active components, which may act synergistically and contribute to the pharmacological power and entourage effects of medicinal-based Cannabis extract (Russo, 2011).

Cannabis is a precious plant with multiple applications, hence the possibility of engineering it genetically to produce useful compounds/raw products is highly valuable. In this section of the review we will: (i) discuss the progress made in Cannabis in vitro propagation together with the biotechnological prospects of Cannabis genetic engineering, by highlighting the challenges and benefits, (ii) describe the hairy root culture system as a tool for the scalable production of cannabinoids and (iii) discuss the advantages of the Cannabis cell suspension culture system.
