ABC (Australian Bastard Cannabis) This rare mutation has been found in the rural South of Australia in the 70´s or 80´s according to the cannabis Community. This plant has absolutely no resemblance to Cannabis, yet DNA analysis has shown it to be Cannabis sativa. Yet it is the most distant relative in the Cannabis genus having even fewer genes in common with regular Cannabis than Hemp. Often referred to as ABC for Australian Bastard Cannabis or Bindi Bud (Australian slang) the plants start their growth rather slow and pick up from the 6th week to grow much faster. The leaves are tiny in comparison to regular Cannabis plants, they have serrated and non-serrated expression, smooth, thick and heavily fingered sometimes variegated and shiny leaves. Generally, a large range of range variation can be observed with ABC leaves. Most of the time the plant structure is that of a Christmas tree. Yet plants that grow like vines or wider than tall plants have been observed in a relatively small number of the population. There is a common leaf shape for most ABC plants, which best could be described as parsley-like. A tiny percentage features other leaf morphologies, which we currently are working to select for. Another advantage of ABC is that they are super hardy compared to regular Cannabis. Featuring an improved cold-hardiness and heat tolerance, as well as diseases resistance, making them a great choice for difficult climates. The leaf trait is recessive and does not show in the first generations. Flower production and Cannabinoid concentrations are also smaller than in regular cannabis, yet several improved lines and hybrids have been created and we are confident in the coming years ABC will catch up with regular Cannabis plants. We will be offering soon a range of different ABC varieties, some IBL´s (Inbreed lines), as well as hybrids, such as ABC Flo and Subterfuge Power German.
