Mandarin-Flavored Marijuana Meets High CBD
Taking the already powerfully therapeutic Carmen and amping up the already sizable 13% CBD seemed like an impossible dream… until Carmen 2.0 came along.
By crossing the original genetics with the also CBD-rich Nightingale Indica strain, we have here in Carmen 2.0 Feminized an exceptional specimen with a 1:2 THC to CBD ratio, a strain born to claim the medical marijuana crown.
With Cannabidiol (CBD) levels ranging from 16 to 20% and the most mouthwatering mandarin flavor and aroma profile you can imagine, you’d be hard-pressed to find a reason not to grab this ganja for yourself at any and every opportunity.
THC tends to sit around the 8% mark at the most, which can put off the more die-hard recreational tokers out there, however, the blend between CBD and THC delivers a subtle and gentle sense of cerebral clarity that you’d be mad not to appreciate.
Carmen 2.0 isn’t going to get you stoned in the traditional sense, but she is more than capable of making you feel utterly incredible - and that’s what it’s all about!
Even better, growing successful harvests from these feminized cannabis seeds is practically a guarantee of sizable outcomes able to fill your shelves with an effortless minimum of 300 grams per meter squared of these high CBD nugs.
Easy enough for first-time growers, downright delicious in every way and therapeutic to the core? Tell me more...
Flavor and Fragrance of Carmen 2.0
With the precise genetic makeup of Carmen 2.0 shrouded in secrecy, it’s tough to guess at the terpene profile at work here - what we do know is that this CBD-heavy hybrid is a fruity sensation you’re not going to want to miss.
This strain bursts with tropical citric tones capable of enticing even those who don’t partake in Mary Jane with their sublime sweetness. It’s a mandarin-driven explosion of fruity personality that’s easily as pleasing to the tongue as to the nose.
If you’re like me, these are the kinds of fruity flavors that make cannabis come alive for you - a citric cornucopia which is so delicious as to almost outweigh the lack of any real psychoactive hit from Carmen 2.0 Fem (even without this strain’s prominent medical benefits sweetening the deal).
Some say the THC of Carmen 2.0 Feminized ranges between 1% and 9%, though it tends to average around the 8% mark. As anyone who regularly partakes in recreational pot will know, this is not a lot.
For old-school tokers longing for ganja with a strength more reminiscent of decades-past weed, this CBD hybrid could be just the ticket (if you’re at all into fruit-flavored cannabis, that is - hey, it’s not for everyone).
Those with high THC tolerance might feel little to no psychoactive influence at work when consuming Carmen 2.0 at all, but dig deep and really pay attention and you’ll recognize what’s happening here.
This strain is all about the sublime subtlety of her effects, slowing sweeping her way through you and lighting up the cerebrum, casting negativity into shadows. You’ll feel a palpable sense of calm as though serenity itself is a passenger in everything you do and everything you think.
Because anything remotely psychoactive is tempered by the huge 16%+ CBD content, you won’t experience any of the potential less desirable side effects when consuming cannabis (though there are those who still say they feel the edge of dry eyes or cottonmouth, especially with higher dosages).
Medical Uses of Carmen 2.0 Feminized
Being a high CBD strain certainly has its benefits, and Carmen 2.0 Feminized is one of the finest of the therapeutic bunch.
Such significant CBD levels have been known to serve as an effective treatment for those who suffer from seizures caused by epilepsy, a trait less common in lower CBD strains of weed.
You’ll also find this hybrid’s mental clearing and calming influence to be a perfect solution for everything from chronic stress to general malaise, depression, anxiety, PTSD or ADHD, which is thanks to Carmen 2.0’s ability to consistently trigger the release of endorphins like serotonin and dopamine - otherwise known as our ‘happy chemicals’.
It’s not just mental maladies with this CBD-rich hybrid either, these buds are also capable of providing powerful analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects which soothe the body of mild to severe aches and pains. From migraines to arthritis or even the likes of multiple sclerosis, Carmen 2.0 can restore a sense of physical balance and peace.
Thanks to this strain’s low THC content and the further tempering influence of such high CBD, you won’t have any real concerns of unwarranted side effects when consuming this cannabis, but it’s always wise to stay hydrated throughout the experience.
Growing Carmen 2.0 Feminized Seeds
While the exact origins of the original Carmen are a bit of a mystery, given the production potential, relatively short stature and decent natural resilience of these plants, it’s fair to say there’s a healthy dose of Indica genetics at play here - certainly when it comes to cultivating Carmen 2.0 Feminized.
Unless you have access to a balmy Mediterranean climate, you’ll want to grow this ganja indoors for best results. Since the plants tend to range between 50cm and 1.5 meters tall, it’s pretty easy to find plenty of indoor space to house these therapeutic beauties in.
If you’re able to then opt for a Sea of Green (SoG) setup which will help you make the most of all your available space and reach the maximum potential for your harvest.
Given that the main reason most cultivators grow Carmen 2.0 Feminized is for the medicinal value this stuff possesses, you’ll want to use an organic soil medium to help encourage the highest possible terpene production in your plants - these terps are responsible for the flavor, aroma and therapeutic effects of cannabis, so this is your best bet if you want the best medical marijuana possible come harvest time.
Overall, you’re looking at between 6 and 8 weeks of flowering time before that sweet mandarin-smelling crop is ready to harvest and net the indoor grower anywhere in the region of 300 to 350 grams per meter squared. Outdoors, it’s possible to achieve an average of 350 grams per plant - though you’ll need warm and sunny conditions for this and should aim to harvest in the first week of October for best results.
With an impressive 2:1 CBD to THC ratio and an average range of 16 to 20% CBD content, it’s fair to say that Carmen 2.0 is one of the medical marijuana market’s most desirable specimens.
Therapeutic weed should be available to everyone, regardless of their clinical status or cultivation experience - with these feminized beans, even the most rookie of growers can effortlessly rear a crop of these CBD-loaded super nugs and treat themselves to a little CBD therapy.
As the icing on the cannabis cake, Carmen 2.0 is also decadently delicious. Put that in your bong and smoke it.
