The Delicious Seeds team has been researching and developing strains with high CBD levels for the last couple of years to meet the needs of their medicinal growers.
It all started three years ago when Delicious Seeds got their hands on a clone of a plant called Carmen, which, they realised when they smoked it, didn't get them stoned but did have a magnificent mandarine taste.
After cloning, they grew it again but this time they analysed it and were surprised to find that it tested at 8.5% THC and 12.5% CBD so Delicious Seeds growers all decided to work on it and conduct further research. In fact, they set themselves the challenge of crossing all the best strains with Carmen.
Delicious Seeds first big success is DEEP MANDARINE, which is Carmen crossed with their best-known strain worldwide; SUGAR BLACK ROSE (SBR).
The resulting plant appears to be totally identical to Sugar Black Rose but with such a profound mandarine taste that they really couldn't call it anything else.
As well as giving them its name, this strain's remarkable mandarine taste and smell indicate a high level of medicinally beneficial terpenes. Analyses conducted so far have given ratios of between 1/1 and 1/3 while some plants tested at 4% THC to 15% CBD, which not only suprised those at Delicious all but spurred them on to make sure they could bring it to market for 2016.
