• Stable F1 hybrid seed delivers consistently uniform results and reliable yield performance.
• When you start clean, you grow clean–eliminate diseases like HLVd and reduce costs for pest management by starting with seed.
• Maximize space utilization in your existing production system to get the highest return per square foot.
• Dependable, short flowering cycles with potential for multiple harvests.

Photosensitive Growth Chart

Optimized for extraction

With a flower harvest index of 40 - 50%, PhotoCBD plants produce more flowers per plant than stems and stalks, meaning less unwanted byproduct and higher value per pound for your processor.

Easy-to-grow compact size

Grow 4,800 plants per acre for better weed suppression and more biomass per acre than orchard-style photosensitive varieties. Depending on your date of transplanting and your cropping system, plant population may range from 4,000-5,000 plants per acre.

• Adaptable to higher densities than most photo varieties
• Lower labor costs with mechanized harvest due to uniform, compact plant size

PhotoCBD in field

Bred for yield, tested for compliance

The importance of obtaining a state-compliant pre-harvest COA is paramount. Access Phylos Hemp Seed COAs and additional information found on our Phylos Hemp Seed Label Reference page.

The following COAs for PhotoCBD are available:

• PhotoCBD biomass PRE-HARVEST COA.
• PhotoCBD flower POST-HARVEST COA.

Our pre-harvest COAs are compliant in Oregon. The 2021 Final Hemp Rule requires laboratories to provide a Measurement of Uncertainty (MU) and changes the THC threshold for negligence.

Contact your State Department of Agriculture to understand the local rules regarding testing and harvest windows.

Refer to the USDA Rule “Establishment of a Domestic Hemp Production Program” (01/19/2021) and the 2018 Farm Bill to understand the federal laws regarding hemp production and compliance.
