MOLD & WIND RESISTANt

“The thick stalks and offshoots of the Midwest Strain plants allowed us to avoid any scaffolding or reinforcement on these plants whatsoever, even through winds that destroyed portions of our other less naturally reinforced fields. This meant major cost savings throughout the season labor-wise, including at harvest time. Midwest Strain exhibited extreme resilience to mold as well, and not one plant was lost to any disease.”

high yielding

“Harvesting Midwest Strain for flower took easily twice the time of other strains in comparable numbers, as it had easily twice the flower development in half of the footprint of our other varieties.”

overcomes challenges

“There are a lot of factors throughout a season during germination, veg, flower, and especially drying and curing which can completely ruin a crop. The Midwest Strain genetics are bred to overcome a lot of these challenges intrinsically, while also producing extreme flower weight for its footprint, with a quality smokable result.”

Quality genetics are the primary factor in a successful hemp harvest.
