Tips for Growing ACDC Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and Botanicare are teaming up on a series of grow guides that will equip you with all the tips and tricks you need to grow different strains successfully.


Strain Overview: Few strains produce as much CBD as ACDC, and as the demand for CBD increases, so does this strain’s popularity. The THC/CBD ratio of this strain can reach as high as 1:20, which means it delivers little to no psychoactive effects. ACDC has been utilized heavily by the medical community to treat conditions such as anxiety, epilepsy, and pain. Consumers sensitive to THC’s side effects have also come to deeply appreciate the mild and relaxing effects ACDC has to offer.

Grow Techniques: This strain will grow in any medium. The plant structure is naturally bushy and requires little or no training. HST (high stress training) will help level the canopy of the plant, and pruning will keep the energy focused towards the topmost buds.

Flowering Time: 10 weeks 

Yield: Moderate

Grow Difficulty: Hard

Climate: ACDC is a picky strain that likes a stable, consistent climate between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: ACDC can be grown indoors or outdoors successfully. If growing outdoors, make sure you have enough time for the strain to finish flowering before temperatures drop in the fall.

Feeding: During the vegetative stage, feed half the recommended amount of nutrients and increase to full feeding during flowering. As a high-CBD strain, ACDC is sensitive to overfeeding.

Tips for Growing Purple Trainwreck Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and Botanicare are teaming up on a series of grow guides that will equip you with all the tips and tricks you need to grow different strains successfully.


Strain Overview: Purple Trainwreck is a cross between Mendocino Purps and Trainwreck. Both parent strains are well-known in the California scene, and Purple Trainwreck follows in their footsteps. Known for its large yields and resistance to disease and mold, this strain has been a longtime favorite for outdoor cultivators.

Grow Techniques: Grow this strain outdoors if you can. Healthy soils and exposure to sunlight will allow this strain to grow large. Top once when the plant is a few feet tall and again every few weeks until it reaches flowering; this will allow the plant to grow into an even bush of buds. If you prune and stake the branches, you will be well rewarded.

Flowering Time: 8 to 9 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Moderate 

Climate: Purple Trainwreck resists mold well and tolerates colder temperatures. While harsh weather can lower the yield, this plant can push through some tough times. Ideally, Purple Trainwreck should be grown between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: If you have the option, grow this strain outdoors where it has enough space to take off.

Feeding: Healthy soil at the beginning of the season will get Purple Trainwreck started on the right foot. Compost tea can improve the plant’s vitality, and top dressing the soil with phosphorus-dense nutrients at the beginning of flowering will keep Purple Trainwreck growing at full speed.

Government Will Provide Patients With CBD Products for Treatment in Mexico

This article is sponsored by CMW Media, the premier public and media relations agency proudly serving the cannabis industry worldwide.  


Medical Marijuana, Inc., the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, will provide the government of the State of Mexico with medical-grade CBD hemp oil products from its subsidiary HempMeds Mexico®, which will be used in the treatment of patients suffering from a variety of conditions including refractory epilepsy and Lennox Gastaut-Syndrome.

The deal marks the first time a government in Mexico has purchased CBD products for its citizens, and follows a series of steps in Mexico’s courts and legislature that have made CBD products more accessible to patients. These include the approval of CBD products from HempMeds Mexico by the Mexican health ministry COFEPRIS.

Brazil Approves U.S. Cannabis Product RSHO as Imported Medication to Treat Cancer

Mexico is just the latest nation in Latin America to make it easier for patients to integrate CBD products into their healthcare regimens. Since 2015, similar steps have been taken by the governments of Brazil and Paraguay. 

The State of Mexico’s Governor Eruviel Avila Villegas distributed HempMeds Mexico’s flagship product Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™), a CBD hemp oil containing zero THC, to patients during the opening of a new clinic in the Mexico City suburb of Ecatepec. Avila was joined at the event by Mexican cannabis activist Raul Elizalde and César Nomar Gómez Monge, Health Minister of the State of Mexico.

“We want to congratulate the State of Mexico’s government for this historic purchase of our CBD products to help relieve the suffering of its citizens,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. president and CEO Dr. Stuart Titus.  

“We are a company of firsts, and this is another first. We are excited to achieve the historic milestone of having the Mexican government purchase our CBD products to benefit its citizens. The plethora of benefits of medical cannabis in treating several types of indications is undeniable, and we are encouraged to see not only healthcare professionals, [but] now also governments, become increasingly interested in how CBD hemp oil can help heal.”

Paraguay Grants Historic Import Permit to CBD Hemp Oil RSHO as Medication for Epilepsy

Epilepsy is among the many indications that can benefit from medical marijuana products. A new study led by Dr. Saul Garza Morales, a pediatric researcher and neurologist in Mexico, helps expand on that body of work.

Recently, Dr. Garza Morales shared the positive results of a recent study he conducted on the effects of Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s RSHO-X™ product in treating children with severe epilepsy. Dr. Garza and his collaborators found that 86% of the 38 patients included in the study saw the frequency of their motor seizures cut in half. Five subjects were even totally seizure-free for four full months, a result that is usually only achieved following major surgeries.

“With the advent of RSHO-X therapy, doctors have a new approach—using natural CBD in its natural, botanical form,” said Dr. Garza. “This has shown to control seizure episodes in epilepsy children to a significant degree, meaning invasive surgeries are now a resort of last measure.”
