Strain: @bodhi seeds’ Good Medicine
Genetics: Good Medicine is Harlequin x Appalachia, aka Wade Laughter’s high-CBD Harlequin (Swiss Landrace x 70’s Columbian Gold x Thailand close to Laos x Nepal Indica) pollinated by Appalachia (Cecil’s Green Crack vs JJNYC’s Tres Dawg)
Strain Description (from bodhi on seedfinder.eu):
I made these seeds as a tool to use in a high cbd project, I made alot more than I need and so I want to share the love.
Harlequin is a famous californian cbd rich clone, it’s a sativa dominant cross of columbian gold, thai, and a nepali indica brought to the community by Wade Laughter. Appalachia is a beautiful hybrid of green crack and jj’s tres dawg created by h & l. I wanted to create a functional pain relieving starting block to cross to other cbd rich plants. There are only a few non feminized high cbd seeds lines available, so I figured this is a good starting point to change that. Initial tests on vegetive leaf samples are showing 2/3 of the plants are rich in cbd, in ratios of 1 to 1 up to 1 to 3. Outcrossing this line to other high cbd plants or inbreeding of this line could be a rewarding for someone looking to generate their own cbd rich plants for juicing, extraction, cooking and combustion.

bodhi’s comments on BreedBay in various places, edited/paraphrased by me:
out of 6 [Good Medicine F1] males tested, 4 were cbd rich.
(paraphrased) good medicine has 1:1 and 1:2 thc:cbd phenos to be found, but also high thc phenos with no cbd.
the cbd rich releases break down like this:
thc rich x cbd rich = 20%-50%cbd rich offspring…
cbd rich x cbd rich =50%-80%cbd rich offspring…
also the males seem to carry the cbd gene more than the females…

Method & Environment:
I’m putting this thread together late, after the plants have hit 8wks in flower, so it’s a bit of catch up. Please keep that in mind when replying. This is how it started:
I have a single F1 pack of bodhi seeds’ Good Medicine with the clear plastic and silver label, apparently packaged before they were given the name/label Good Medicine (March 2013). These were donated by @Torontoke who got them in trade from another Canuck afaik. I soak for 48hrs in a cup of water, then germ in a wet paper towel on top of a small heat source. These seeds are 8 years old at the time of germination (per this post - login required to view: https://www.breedbay.org/community/threads/bodhi-seeds-release-info.201345811/page-154#post-692997) and were claimed to be stored in the fridge that whole time. We’ll see.
Upon germination, I’ll veg them until space opens up in the flower tent, then open pollinate in week 4 from flip with all available male and female plants. I’ll clone them and hope for roots. They’ll get as much time as they need to ripen and then will be harvested, dried, and shucked by hand.
They’ll be grown in a fully recycled organic living soil environment under DIY LED lighting with an AC Infinity T6 exhaust fan and Phresh filter in my spare bedroom. I mix the soil myself and use only water the entire lifespan of the plants, going from solo cups to 1/2 gallon square pots to final pots based on what’s available in my inventory at the time - 7gal cloth pots or, if not available, 10gal plastic bag planters with 2 plants per bag and 7-8gal of soil. No teas or topdressing in most cases, just R/O water the whole way.
