After years of research and testing, the TGA team finally developed a marijuana hybrid that has a high level of CBD Cannabidiol.
Over 70% of the tested samples showed elevated levels of CBD between 12% and 15%, with similar THC levels.
For patients who seeks a strain with high CBD level and great taste, here is your entry ticket to something very special.
Genetic composition of Pennywise
To create Pennywise, TGA Subcool crossed the Harlequin marijuana plant, rich in CBD, with a Jack The Ripper male plant strain, rich in THCV, a particularly active THC form.
The Harlequin is a female marijuana clone, known for its high CBD level, its sweetness, its solid and coloured buds, as well as for its very effective medicinal properties.
Like many great discoveries, the origins of the Harlequin clone are a bit accidental. A small group of private Breeding in Switzerland was working with a marijuana strain for Hashish production, creating a 75% Sativa and 25% Indica strain, by crossing a Colombian Gold Sativa, a Thai Sativa near the region of Laos, a Swiss Landrace Sativa and Indica from the Mustang region in Nepal.
A phenotype of this crossing become famous with the name of Alchemy, while another was given to a friend of this group of breeders who brought it to California in late 2009 to treat his glaucoma.
The buds of the first harvest were brought to famous clinic Harborside for testing, with the surprise of having a very high level of CBD.
Clones of this plant were provided to Harboside with the request that these be shared with the most growers and dispensaries as possible.
At the end of flowering the Harlequin plant produces purple, red, green and wellow coloured flowers which evoke the costume of the jester of the king where the name of this strain comes from.
The big smile that gives the Harlequin plant to your face can also have a clear relation.
Furthermore, Pennywise is the last name of the evil clown of the famous novel “It” by Stephen King.
