Our Story

After investing years of building relationships with some very talented breeders and growers, we have obtained some of the best genetics in existence. Our decision at Elev8 Seeds to carry a strain depends on whether we believe that strain to be a definite “keeper”. By working with large medical marijuana growers, we at Elev8 Seeds have had the opportunity to compare countless strains side by side in the same environment to find that top 1% that people search so hard for.

Elev8 Seeds’ mission is simple: to provide the best genetics in seed form to those that know the value of world-class genetics.

Elev8 Seeds

The Elevation of genetics

The People

As Matt – the mad scientist of Mary Jane behind the increasingly flavorful seed options coming out of Elev8 put it – “Some people breed strictly for yield. Others cross strains just because. We research the flavor and the high, we read forums and grow reports. When I have the idea that two strains will complement one another well, I try to locate the strains; I want to breed something I’m excited about and I’ll enjoy smoking.”

The Plants

The collection of elite genetics at Elev8 leaves growers with a multitude of options. These include quality options like Strawberry Cough crossed with Sour Diesel, resulting in a whole room smelling of sour strawberries from the appropriately named Strawberry Diesel. By crossing Sour Diesel and Strawberry Cough (Strawberry Snow Cone), Elev8 produces seeds certain to deliver rare connoisseur quality frost.

One of the latest and greatest strains to spring from the Elev8 gardens is Sour Patch Kiss. This cross of Sour Kush and Kimbo Kush comes complete with eye-popping jar appeal and a loud as hell odor pouring off every piece of this primo plant specimen. A staple of their genetics is Blackberry Dream – a cross of the award-winning Kimbo Kush from Exotic Genetix and Super Silver Haze. By injecting some sativa into the equation, the end result is an effect Matt describes as “euphoric and almost opiate like…unlike anything I’ve smoked before.”

Top 10 Cannabis Strains of 2018

Dosi Sherbet

Elev8 specializes in preserving elite clone-only strains and reproducing them in stabilized seed form through backcrossing and meticulous selection from a large gene pool. Its Dosi Sherbet, a cross between 2 Scoops (Grape Sherbet x Orange Sherbet) and Dosidos, represents some of the frostiest flowers available anywhere with terpenes that smell and taste like sweet candy and fruity ice cream. These are regular seeds, stable and perfect for growing out a chosen mother plant from which to take and root clones for many future harvests.

Is Harlequin the Best High CBD Strain?

So, how does Harlequin stack up?

Harlequin usually clocks in at a 5:2 CBD to THC ratio with 4-7% THC and 8-16% CBD. Harlequin is sativa-dominant strain that boasts an impressive genetic lineage: Colombian Gold, Thai and Swiss landrace strains, and a Nepali indica. Given the influence of sativa properties, Harlequin provides characterist effects that ease anxiety, while increasing alertness. The nice balance of cannabinoids makes it a great candidate to use Harlequin to treat anxiety and pain.

What's so special about Harlequin?

Harlequin has gained a following as a high CBD strain since it was discovered. These feminized seeds are made from two Harlequin females. The benefit of feminized seeds in CBD strains is that phenotype expression can sometimes be more predicable in the offspring, producing a more consistent CBD to THC ratio.

Flavors range from earthy musk to sweet mango but what makes Harlequin so popular is its ability to relax without sedation and to relieve without intoxication.

After harvesting seeds from the plant, we had the strain tested by a nearby lab. Generally, plants that have produced seeds tend to test lower in Cannabinoids than unpollinated females but these tests still came in on the high end of other Harlequin tests throughout the country.

THC

Vs.

CBD

As you may know, cannabis is a complex plant with hundreds of compounds – of which over 100 are cannabinoids. The two most prominent and best studied cannabinoids are; delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC, and cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD.

Chemical Structure

Both CBD and THC have the exact same molecular structure: 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms. A slight difference in how the atoms are arranged accounts for the differing impacts on your body.

Both CBD and THC are chemically similar to your body’s own endocannabinoids. This allows them to interact with your cannabinoid receptors. The interaction impacts the release of neurotransmitters in your brain. Neurotransmitters are chemicals responsible for relaying messages between cells.

Medicinal Benefits

CBD and THC have many of the same medical benefits. They can provide relief from several of the same conditions. However, CBD doesn’t cause the euphoric effects that occur with THC. Some people may prefer to use CBD because of the lack of this side effect.

In June 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Epidiolex, the first prescription medication to contain CBD. It’s used to treat rare, difficult-to-control forms of epilepsy.

CBD is used to help with other various conditions, such as:

  • Seizures
  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Nausea
  • Migraines
  • Depression 
  • Anxiety

THC is used to help with conditions such as:

  • Pain 
  • Muscle Spasticity
  • Glaucoma
  • Insomnia
  • Low Appetite
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
