The Philosopher Seeds breeding team knows that, while many of their clients use cannabis recreationally, there is also a vast group of people who use CBD strains to treat diverse medical conditions. That’s why they have created a number of strains with different concentrations of this cannabinoid, so that any user can find the variety that best suits his/her needs.
As you may already know, the Golo Line is the result of a collaboration between Philosopher Seeds and Jimi from Reggae Seeds, one of the first breeders worldwide to develop CBD varieties. As we’ll also see, the guys from Old School Genetics also developed an autoflowering CBD strain for Philosopher Seeds, Fraggle Skunk Auto. Let’s take a closer look now at Philo’s CBD varieties.

Heaven’s Fruit is one of the strains developed using the Tropimango parent. Indeed, it is a cross between Tropimango and New York City Diesel. This balanced hybrid (60% Sativa – 40% Indica) is resistant to pests but a bit sensitive to low temperatures. It is ready to harvest in just 9 weeks, and its taste is complex: diesel, earthy and slightly acid. The effect is very pleasant and stimulating, mainly Sativa. Most Heaven’s Fruit phenotypes show high CBD content.

Another strain with high CBD content in the majority of individuals is Spicy CBD / SuperJuani, a hybrid developed by crossing Respect#15 and Juanita la Lagrimosa. Its growth pattern is mainly Sativa, with a considerable stretch during the first weeks of bloom, which takes around 65-70 days. The smell and taste are reminiscent of Haze, with spicy undertones. The effect induces a strong feeling of wellness in both body and mind.
Finally, the Guava Berry Kush / Guayita is a cross between Guayaba (ChemDog x Afghani x Chem’91) and Juanita la Lagrimosa. This mainly Indica hybrid is ideal for the SOG technique and is ready in around 9-10 weeks.
