We took one of the superstars of cannabinoid production (“The White,” an elite THC variety) and converted it to a pure CBG chemotype. Plants grow into stout bushes with large frosty flowers. Beautiful bag appeal makes it an excellent choice for cut flower, with some producers even running it in light deprivation greenhouses. This varieties dense flower production is better suited for drier climates.
• Fast growing with potential for large quantities of A grade flower
• A varied but solid terpene profile
• Our highest testing CBG flower
• Huge colas better suited for drier climates

Through a science-based approach, he surveyed thousands of varietals in search of a high CBG strain. Working with several European geneticists and a Swiss pharmaceutical company on trials, he finally landed on Matterhorn CBG. In 2019, he registered Matterhorn CBG at CPVO Europe.
