CBD Med Gom Auto is a high CBD autoflowering strain from CBD Crew. It is the result of a long research and development process carried out by Grass-O-Matic and CBD Crew, who worked together to obtain a high grade medicinal cannabis strain with the advantages of automatic flowering.
All the seeds will generate females plants with a minimum guaranteed content of Cannabidiol (CBD) of 4% and which are ready to harvest within 60/65 days from germination. THC and CBD ratio would be between 1:1 and 1:2 and depending on the growing conditions, the cannabinoid content may reach up to 10% THC and 15% CBD.
CBD Med Gom is usually a medium-sized plant which will rarely reach more than 1 metre tall, with compact buds completely frosted with sticky resin which exude an intense citrus aroma, and spicy nuances.

OG Kush CBD takes the qualities and complexity of one of the USA’s favourite strains OG Kush, and combines them with a high CBD-producing plant that reduces the profoundly psychoactive effect of the original and makes it more suitable as a medicine for those seeking to reduce anxiety, increase appetite and relieve muscular pain. It also possesses wonderfully complex aromas and flavours which include lemon, petrol, wood and spice. OG Kush CBD is 60% sativa.
OG Kush CBD is easy to grow and the yields of dense, aromatic buds are very good indeed. The plants themselves are slim with a very close inter-nodal distance which helps to keep production high. Pleasantly and gently euphoric this strain has a quite long-lasting effect.
Dinafem recommends the use of organic nutrients for the production of medicinal cannabis and its related products. Easy to grow indoors it will yield 550 gr/m2 in 55 – 60 days. When grown outdoors it can reach a height of 300 cm. yielding 1100 gr/plant in mid-October in northern latitudes. It produces THC:CBD in the ratio 1:1 at a level of 10% of each cannabinoid although the occasional plant will achieve a 1:2 ratio, providing even better medicine.

Nightingale (NN-1), named after Florence Nightingale the founder of modern nursing, is a poly hybrid indica bred from the legendary Shiskaberry and CD-1.
During testing, its CBD levels have ranged from 20.3% to 10.3%. The THC level varied the most out of all of the strains sold by Medical Marijuana Genetics, meaning this strain varied from between a 1:1 strain to a 20:1 strain. If you need fairly precise THC levels and do not have access to testing then beware of this strain. If you are looking for a high CBD, low THC strain and have access to a laboratory then this is one to test.
It is worth noting that from our research – and unlike its CD-1 parent – it appears that the indica phenotype that this plant produces is the 20:1 pheno, with the more sativa pheno producing a 1:1 strain.
Nightingale’s berry lineage is evident in many of its characteristics, with striking purple leaves in flower, sweet berry aroma and high yield. It is perfect for night time use and can be utilised for those suffering with insomnia and anxiety, as well as a host of other medical conditions. Nightingale (NN-1) is suitable for all growing environments and is suitable for making extractions and vaping/smoking.
