Resin Seeds Experiment. Looking to nature for guidance.
Conducting a test , a brain child of @resinseedsofficial , who discussed placing plants out for the animals explaining that perhaps the cannabinoid profiles that attract the animals naturally may perhaps be the ones better/best suited for us naturally . Pictured is a #DieselTonic 1:1 pheno from #ResinSeeds ., put half a dozen clones in 1gal pots outside 3 months ago in a 3 ft hole . I actually forgot about them during the work flow and a week ago I stumbled upon them . The only water given was a 2 gallon container full the day I found her . She seems to have acclimated to zone 3 . She has obviously seen harsh freezing conditions and yet , she rolls along , certainly much slower than her sisters aboard the spaceships but nevertheless .., intriguing , I'm learning , and so sharing . Not much evidence of much eating to current @resinseedsofficial , a few leaves have been munched maybe 2 or 3 I see . Tracks are all around , they certainly know it's here .??. Perhaps when it grows up out beyond the hole further , we shall see more ., the chickens are loose now too ., adding them to this farmyard experiment we are …, yes ?? #GreenGoddessGardens #ResinSeeds #cbdreads #experiment
Listening to an interview with Resin SeedsÂ´ friend Dr. William Courtney, we learned that deer and other animals will occasionally encounter cannabis plants but eat only from the leaf and not from the flowering bud containing the majority of the psychoactive resin. It is thought these animals are consuming on average 30 micro-grams per session; a typical heavy cannabis user may consume up to 300,000 micro-grams in edible form. One major point to consider here is the plantÂ´s bi-phasic effect, meaning higher and higher doses of cannabinoids can induce the very effects it is known for mitigating. Is it possible that the deer and other animals, who may return to ingest the raw cannabinoids just a few times weekly, instinctively know that a lower dose will be more effective in maintaining a healthy endocannbinoid system? We may have a lot to learn in dosing, nature appears to prefer microdosing as a regular alternative. Perhaps we should consider re-evaluating our relationships with our healing plant to allow it to truly bring us its highest medicinal benefit.
Our enthused grower set-off to plant some healthy Dieseltonic cuttings along his property, which is visited by friendly deer and other animals on a regular basis. His relationship and connection to nature is truly impressive, and the animals trust him well enough to be hand fed apples and other such delights.
The idea is to have several plants, not only the 1:1 pheno of Dieseltonic, but other chemotypes and strains as well, and try to see if the deer will help us decide which plants may be better suited for general endocannabinoid maintenance. It may be a useless or crazy experiment, as we already understand a fair amount of our traditional cannabinoids and their roles in providing homeostasis.
