Honesty, Integrity, and Healthy Plants
Putting the success of farmers first
Bonafide Seeds breeds hemp genetics that provide competitive CBD oil/acre yields while maintaining compliance with the total THC standard 15 days before harvest. Varying Outdoor fields and local climates can alter THC potency so it is imperative that THC levels are monitored via laboratory testing well before the USDA mandated sampling date to ensure compliance.
Our indoor facility is where breeding and development takes place. Here we go through a vigorous plant selection process that includes flowering the hemp indoors and getting state certified lab tests performed on each plant multiple times during the flowering cycle. We keep only the plants with genetic traits that are favorable to producing abundant yields of high CBD low THC flower.
In the field we plant duplicate clones of our single most promising genetic type. From these plants we produce and harvest feminized seeds. Once harvested we take random samples and put them through a rigorous verification process. First the samples are sprouted so we can determine the germination rate. Next a sample of the germinated seedlings is selected and put into flowering to identify the percentage of plants that are female. After this, a sample of these plants is retained and tested multiple times between weeks 2-8 of flowering to gather data on the CBD and THC levels. Once this data has been collected we make it available to those interested in our seeds.
