Looking to jump-start your hemp and cannabis clone farm, but you do not know where and how to get started? Well, you are not alone as many people out there have similar concerns, and this article will provide you with much needed information.
It is important to note that all hemp clones are not created equally. Some varieties exhibit better resilience to mold, insects, diseases, and drought while others require more or fewer nutrients. We have yet to mention humidity and soil types, but the truth of the matter is that these latter factors dictate the kind of the clone you will be able to grow in your area. Of course, you will need a strain that will grow throughout the seasons and produce the best yields possible.
Well, if you are living in the Pacific Northwest, Northwest, Southwest, and South, then you need to consider planting strains that will tolerate high humidity and do well in soils such as Alfisols, Andisols (volcanic soils), Aridisols, Mollisols, and Inceptisols. Fortunately, through genetic engineering, clone varieties have been established that do exceptionally well in these regions. These genetically engineered clones include the following:
Sativa Cannabis also looks Different than Indica
Sativa genetics is known historically to thrive well in the equatorial areas around the globe. However, research has shown that it can do exceptionally well in California and other regions in the Pacific Northwest and south. The bud and plant structure are typically airier, and this helps the clone withstand high humidity levels and extreme temperatures. For this reason alone, sativa hemp clones are incredibly popular in areas with higher rainfall and humidity.
- Somango XL
This clone has been genetically created to produce an uplifting cerebral rush. More importantly, its users do not feel lethargic or tired. Derived from cloning Critical 47 and Somango X, this strain boasts of immense resilience to adverse weather conditions like prolonged dry spells. This perhaps explains why it can thrive well in most Southwest and Southern parts of the US. It grows to a height of two meters and can produce 600 grams of high CBD flowers in optimal conditions. This clone is always ready for harvest from mid-September.
- Green Crack
Hemp clones from Green Crack are definitely the right clones for growing in California, Arizona, and other western states. This plant is excellent for growers wishing to try out their green thumb. It is a long-standing strain with high-energy effects and sweet citrus aroma. Most high CBD products that give rise to motivational and uplifted feelings are derived from this clone. While most hemp clones are difficult to grow because of their upward stretch and long-flowering time, Green Crack is easily managed. The presence of Indica genetics in the plant gives it improved yields resulting from a quick flowering time. The only drawback to this cannabis plant is that it is a clone-only strain – hence it is difficult to find.
Critical is yet another hemp clone that does well in these regions. This plant is an excellent all-rounder doing well in all growth aspects. It is a resilient, vigorous, potent, easy to grow, and robust plant. It can do well in seasons where temperatures are incredibly low. Its short flowing time ensures that farmers get their harvest way before the frost begins setting in. This great cannabis strain can grow to reach 2.2 meters high and yield extremely generous produce of deeply relaxing buds. Since it blooms faster, it’s harvesting time is around the end of September.
Many other hemp clones can do well in these regions, but those explained above are the most common. So now you have some hints on where you can start your farming this year as far as clone selection is concerned.
Hemp clones have attracted headlines and excitement in equal measure lately as a potential plant of the future. It is poised to shower people in the United States of America with a long list of benefits in food, biofuel, textiles, recreation, and medication. Report from reliable scientific studies shows that hemp clones are a great source of cannabidiol (or CBD) – a trendy compound billed to cure many ailments from chronic pain to anxiety and headaches.
That is good! Right? Perhaps your New Year’s resolution was to start hemp farming, and you are now wondering where to begin. Well, your success in this industry will largely depend on whether you planted the right type of hemp clones. Remember we are not talking about just any cannabis strain! It all depends on where you are located; your garden’s soil type, availability of water, and the region’s humidity.
If you are located in the Midwest, Southeast or along the East coast, we have the information you are seeking. These regions have an annual average relative humidity of 56.1% to 80.3 %. You also need to be aware that main soil types in these areas are Alfisols, Histosols, Inceptisols, Spodosols, and Entisols. With this information, you can focus on the most suitable hemp clone that can do exceptionally well in your area. Again, it is a task finding the best strain for your region. Fortunately, we have detailed four of the best yielding strains for Midwest, East, and Southeastern US as the follows:
- NYC Diesel
Cloned by Soma Sacred Seeds, NYC Diesel is arguably one of the most popular strains in these regions. It is a perfect hemp clone that is better known for its cerebral effects, grassy aroma, and full-body relaxation. The grapefruit aroma and pungent line are two of the plant’s properties that demonstrate its mark of quality.
This strain can be grown both outdoors and indoors. Since requirements needed for fruitful outdoor cultivation are often hard to come by, indoor gardening of NYC Diesel in Minnesota, for example, is on the rise. Nonetheless, outdoor growing requires a warm fall and dry climate to yield the best produce. Famers planting this strain can benefit from a nine to eleven-week flowering time.
- NY Kush
The Kush hybrid hemp clone is named after the Empire State, and it is one of the most cultivated strains not only in the state of New York but also in 38 other states in the US. This plant is widely known for its high CBD levels and low THC. Over the years, it has been planted in this region for the sole aim of treating seizures, physical pain, and other medical conditions. The dominant Indica genetic clone also delivers an energized, focused, and incredibly cerebral effect.
- Speedy Chile
Speedy Chile is a recent entrant clone in the cannabis industry, and it has already found its favorite place in the Midwestern US. It is a feminized version of the novel auto-flowering strain. It does exceptionally well in both outdoor and indoor environments. The clone is a mix between Chile Indica and Green Poison, so the derived plant is a 70 percent Indica-dominant strain with great genetics. When grown outdoors, this plant can reach a height of 100 to 170cm while reaching only 100cm when planted indoors. In just six weeks from time of planting, this clone is ready to flower, and it yields up to 500 grams per tree.
- White Widow
If you have been in the cannabis industry for a while, then there is no doubt that you have heard of the famous White Widow. This is an iconic cannabis strain grown in almost all climates of the world. It is particularly common in NY, Michigan, Ohio, and other states in the midwest, southeast, and east. The plant features exceptional genetics having properties of Brazilian Landrace strain and Indica. It is, therefore, a potent clone with robust grow genetics ideal for growing in these specific regions.
Grown both in both indoor and outdoor environments, this clone reaches a height of one meter and two meters respectively. They do incredibly well in days when there is plenty of sunlight as it can hold up under harsh conditions. It starts to flower when it is about eight to nine weeks old yielding 600 grams per tree. Its buds feature a complex blend of aromas and flavors with a whopping 19 percent CBD levels.
