Hello guys, as I mention before I am growing in Europe some CBD flowers. My goal is to make those flowers fully legal in my country where is legal to have Total THC under 0,3%.
In my first grow cycle which was more like a “small phoenohunt” Ive choose 3 phoenotypes, which were tested great. Than I decide to take one phoeno (3 cuts), which has the THC around 0,28%. When I was growing this batch firstly, I was thinking I am doing my best, so I was expecting those flowers will be at their top, with content of cannabinoids. So I wasnt expecting, it can have more THC, than those first few CUTs from same mother.
As I wanted to be sure, Ive changed the nutrients from minerals fertizing to organic fertizers and used lower wattage of LEDS. My expectation was that the content of both (THC, CBD) will be lower with those steps.
My grow finnished with weird results. CBD raised by 0,5% while delta9-THC raised by 0,2… THCA is same, CBN is same, so the only different is that stupid active delta9 and I really dont have anything how to explain this. I will be doing test one more time, as the results looks weird to me. But I guess the lab didnt make mistakes…
But my question is, if the new test will prove, it has new Total 0,45% is there any way, how can I change this to CBN, or some other thing I can do for those flowers to become legal? So transfer the 0,15% of THC into some other compounds.
Ive read a lot about storing, and how can bad storing and curing influence the potency, but I didnt find any exact informations like, keep flowers in 20°C for 2 weeks and you will reduce THC by 0,1%.
So please, does someone here know about some steps I could do to degradate the THC in flowers and not drasticly destroy the aroma of buds? Can I use high temps, humidity or light to reduce the THC in already harvested flowers? Thank you very much for any tips
