Seeds a'poppin! Good to see everyone breaking some FDM eggs....
Maybe. I haven't tested or bred for CBD. I'm a THC breeder.
I'm buddies with Oldtimer from the OG days. Haven't made the acquaintance with the other cats, but I like the cut of their jib. Sativa lovers, and landrace curators. Tenemos el mismo corazon! (Mi espanol esta horrible, lo siento...)
That's whorled phylotaxy. Surprised you haven't run across it before. It happens, and it can be beneficial. You could end up with a very tight-noded, fat budded plant. Or it could grow out in a few nodes and return to regular. Hard to pin down or breed for, but worth holding onto a clone in case you end up with a super-producer. Cindy seems to throw them out more than other strains.
That sounds early, generally its the 5-6th node. I believe staggered nodes is a characteristic of age rather than size. 5-6 weeks from germination, regardless of size of plant.
