More than 2 years ago we set out on Delicious Seeds research and development to offer high in CBD varieties for our medicinal growers.
It all starts when three years ago I came into our hands a clone of a plant called Carmen, which turned out after harvesting and smoking to have a magnificent tangerine flavour. We cloned the plant again but this time were surprised to find that the analysis gave us 8.5% THC and 12.5% CBD. Pleasantly surprised that we all said, let's try and work with it.
Indeed, we start crossing all our best strains with Carmen, and set to work each as a ̴Ì_separate challenge. Our first major result was the Deep Mandarine, which is a cross of our most internationally recognised strain. Sugar Black Rose (SBR) x Carmen. The result is a totally identical to the Sugar Black Plant rose in form but deep tangerine flavour, hence the name. The amount of beneficial terpenes are those that highlight the deep smell and taste of tangerine.
It was impossible to put another name to this variety, it emerged that the variety itself told us so. In analyses all individuals have so far analysed ratios of 1:1 to 1:3, some had up to 4% THC and 15% CBD, which surprised and encouraged us all to work on this variety and to put it on the market in 2016.
