As a chucker, I rely on luck most of the time when I cross-breed plants, but lady luck was really friendly to me with a recent cross that I made; Lebanese Landrace x Sweet Pure Auto CBD.
I love Lebanese because it grows so well outdoors in my typically scorching hot and dry climate, it finishes incredibly fast, and the cannabinoid balance is nearly perfect for me. The one thing it is lacking is terpenes.
I wanted to breed some terpenes into it, but I didn’t want to risk driving the THC too high or extend the flowering time. Hence, I chose Sweet Pure Auto CBD which is very high CBD, very low THC, autoflowering, and quite stinky. The mother (SPACBD) of the seeds was a 20:1 CBD phenotype.
I am growing 4 of these crosses right now (all females). 2 in my tent (12/12 from seed) and 2 outdoors. I do want plants that do well in either environment. They are all very vigorous, and very stinky (stinkier than mom). Much more Lebanese-like structure and leaf shape but the terpenes are incredible. The 2 small girls in my tent are the only plants in there right now and when I open my tent to water them, my entire basement reeks for about 30 minutes after. Outdoors, I can be sitting or working many yards away from the two girls and get an intoxicating hit of their smell randomly.
It’s probably too early to get excited, but I can’t help myself. If the cannabinoid balance is good for me, I may have created my perfect plant.
I’ll update this thread as things progress. Eventually I may take these to F2 and then select the inevitable autoflowering plants to breed into a separate line, or I may back-cross to both Leb and SPACBD (separately) just to see what pops up.
