The Case Against Chemically
Hemp is a healing plant. Hemp produces the most powerful anti-inflammatory medicine in the world. The medicine which is derived from hemp treats cancer, epilepsy, and countless other ailments of which we are only beginning to learn and understand. If there is one plant which should not be compromised and/or subject to forced genetic mutations, it is hemp - especially when simple farm management will not only generate a successful natural crop, but a superior yielding crop grown for the harvest and utilization of the WHOLE Hemp Plant. The Hemp plant has over 500 plus valuable compounds why would you buy a mutated seed, just to grow and farm it for only one of those beneficial compounds ?
“Feminized seed” is the forced RNA mutation, modification and manipulation of hemp genome for profit.
Go Farm Hemp refuses to participate in the production or sales of "feminized seed"or in the trade of plant material derived from feminized seed.
WHY FEMINIZED SEED WAS CREATED
Because farmers were told to farm for just one or two compounds of the plant, typically CBD or CBG.
Female hemp plants produce oil in-order to attract pollen from male hemp plants and to guard against drought. As a female fails to attract male pollen, it creates more oil in the hopes of pollinating.
The reason that farmers have been told not to have male plants, in their field, is due to the fact that once pollinated, the crop stops producing oil and starts producing seed. This is due to the plant’s purpose in life, which is to procreate and produce the seed for next years climatized generation.
The concept of “feminized seed” was born with the goal of eliminating all males from a field of hemp so that the female hemp plants could be harvested for their flower without seeds. This was achieved by chemically altering a female hemp plant, mutating female hemp plants into thinking they are male so that they produce pollen, through the repeated spraying of known poisons and mutagens, RNA manipulation.
The truth is, there are ideal levels of male plants a farmer would want to have growing in his or her hemp field during vegetative growth. The female plants sense the males in the field, which stimulates them to produce their optimal levels of oil. As a farmer you should also be able to reproduce and develop your own cultivars on your land. Male plants in your field will allow you to do just that.
Evidence shows that natural seed derived female plants are healthier and more robust than the mutated un natural female plants derived from feminized seed. But don't take our word for it, the proof is in the field at the bottom of this page.
The truth about feminized seed.
Feminized seed was created because of misinformation, lack of knowledge as to how hemp grows naturally and a fear of the male plant.
The male plant poses no danger to the female plant during vegetative growth. In fact, in vegetative growth the male plant is necessary to let the dioecious females in the field know that everything’s okay and as it should be – dioecious males and females together during vegetative growth.
If you want to grow dioecious hemp for one or two compound flower production you can cull the males prior to pollination.
We as a company grow natural dioecious seed with males and females present, the way it grows in nature.
The natural way is the only way, in our opinion.
There is nothing wrong with the hemp plant, there is something wrong with many of the farming practices of conventional farmers and people who are messing with the genetics of the sacred hemp plant Cannabis Sativa L.
We grow for the whole plant not just one or two of the oil compounds.
There is nothing wrong with pollination as we grow non mutated natural hemp plants for protein, hemicellulose, fiber, oil, and each and every compound that is in the whole natural hemp plant.
WHY would you grow just for CBD, or just for CBG, when the Hemp plant contains over 400 plus valuable compounds ?
THE DAMAGING RESULTS OF FARMING FEMINIZED SEED
The hemp plants grown from feminized seed are altered and un natural they can not be considered as natural seed, nor can the plant material be considered natural or certified organic as it came from genetically modified seed. If any seed IS produced, it will be unstable at best, producing less yield and unable to climatize. Therefore, the farmer is unable to grow his own seed from his own crops and must repurchase feminized seed annually, greatly increasing his annual crop costs.
The hemp plants grown from feminized seed are unable to climatize to the specific microclimate of the farm they are grown in. This is because the feminized seed creates altered plants. Natural hemp plants are able to climatize significantly in one to two generations. Feminized seed is produced in a controlled environment, typically in a greenhouse or indoor. It has no chance to adapt or thrive in a specific microclimate, and no chance to pass on the specific microclimate information to the next generation to climatize.
The oil (CBD) yield per plant is lower with feminized seed than with natural seed. This is due to two factors. First, because feminized seed is altered, it is unable to climatize to specific microclimates and performs poorly due to this factor.
Plants which are not climatized produce less oil than plants which are allowed to naturally climatize and thrive in specific microclimates. Secondly with natural seed, good farming practices allow a small percentage of natural males in the field during vegetative growth in order to fully stimulate the female plants. With feminized seed, the lack of males in the field is so unnatural and confusing to the mutated female plants that some females literally transform into a hermaphrodite to make certain that pollen is released to pollinate females and itself.
The fact that feminized seed causes so much stress and danger to the plants that some females will transform into hermaphrodites, which is a safety valve for the plant when she feels stressed, shows that everything IS wrong. Using feminized seed is not how nature intended the plant to grow and this kind of unnatural environment thwarts the vibrance of the oil producing female plants.
Stop growing for one or two compounds and start growing for the whole plant, please.
Did you know hemp flower contains anywhere from 25% to 35% pure plant based protein? Corn typically contains 7% protein by weight.
It is a true tragedy that, after arguing for SO long the virtues of the cannabis plant, and focusing on its medicinal properties in order to achieve legalization, that there are seed companies mutating the genetics - ON A PLANT TO BE USED FOR MEDICINE - for the primary purpose of forcing the farmer to grow sterile plants so that the farmer has to repurchase the same mutated seeds again for every new crop grown. These Genetic Mutating seed sellers have NO substantiated research supporting their "hope" that the medicine grown from their mutated plants is as effective as the natural hemp plant's medicinal natural output.
We as farmers need to be growing the plant naturally with natural seed for the harvest of the whole hemp plant.
We do not need to grow for just one or two compounds when the natural hemp plant contains over 400 valuable compounds.
Feminized seed is being sold with "fear" -- Fear the males plants, fear pollen, fear managing your farm.
Say "no" to Mutated Seeds. Hemp produces medicine. This is what we told lawmakers. Hemp is a healing plant. Say "no" to the feminized seed fear sale. Don't buy the same feminized seeds -- Over and over again. Buy natural seed -- Once. Let's make good medicine, good food, renewable and sustainable the way nature intended it to be grown.
Go Farm Hemp does not participate in the production or sales of “feminized seed”. We believe that the hemp plant in its purest and natural form is the way nature intended it to grow and will create the most beneficial healing qualities the plant has to offer. We believe our natural heirloom seeds and farming techniques will maximize the yield of the whole plant and provide the grower with the full confidence that his or her hemp product will satisfy any level of buyer - even if it’s for a cancer patient.
