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.

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.

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.

Global trials and partnerships

We work with farms around the country and around the world to conduct field trials to assess our seeds at scale and identify climate-specific traits.

Since 2020, we performed seed trials at 35+ different locations. We also work with select partners to perform large and carefully controlled seed-productions runs.

Short-season crop

Maturing in late September to early October at 42° N, PhotoCBD is an optimal choice for staggered harvests or pairing with other varieties.
