The Franklin phenotype is a vigorous plant with moderate to long internodes. Franklin has shown, in greenhouse trials, to have above average powdery mildew resistance especially compared to other phenotypes and genetics.
Franklin is also a rapid rooting plant. This plant shows high tests in the terpenes Caryophyllene. The flower at maturity is spicy with hints of pepper and clove with a piney finish.
Although the plant generally has high CBD content, it may produce high THC levels if not properly managed.
To prevent this from happening, IHF measures the THC levels 3-5 weeks before the harvesting period.
Assaying THC levels is particularly necessary during drought or unusually hot weather conditions as this may increase THC levels in hemp.
Average CBD-A: 10% - 14+%
