Colorado Cannabis Clones

Todd Davis - Thursday, January 07, 2016



Clone Strains

-by Robert Degen.

When approaching the subject of marijuana clones, one obvious factor in your endeavor is what strain of marijuana you intend to grow from a clone. A marijuana clone (like any other ‘clone’ which is an identical copy from a source –or in this case a ‘mother’ plant’) is a cutting from a marijuana plant used to expand a nursery without needing to grow a new plant from seed. (1) “Cloning is a way of propagating plants through asexual reproduction of the plant by cutting and rooting a healthy shoot. This creates clones. It is also known as ‘taking a cutting’.“

It may seem complicated, but there’s no need to muddy the issue just by adding the word ‘clone’. You’re still dealing with the marijuana plant itself and subject to all the natural ways it grows and also the many different types or strains of the marijuana plant. It still breaks down to an Indica, a Sativa, (also the lesser known ‘cannabis ruderalis’ which refers to landrace strains or those that grow in the wild) or a hybrid of/between the two. (2) “Cannabis strains are either pure or hybrid varieties of Cannabis, typically of C. sativa and C. indica Ruteralis. Varieties are developed to intensify specific characteristics of the plant, or to differentiate the strain for the purposes of marketing it more effectively as a drug. Variety names are typically chosen by their growers, and often reflect properties of the plant such as taste, color, smell, or the origin of the variety” Hybrids bridge the gap between Sativa and Indica and allow for taking advantage of desirable qualities from both ends of the spectrum. (3) “In addition to pure indica, sativa, and ruderalis varieties, hybrid varieties with varying ratios of these three types are common. For example, the White Widow hybrid containing about 60% indica and 40% sativa ancestry. These hybrid varieties exhibit traits from both parental types.”

As is the case when selecting a strain to consume, desired effect is likely the primary influence in the selection of a specific strain. There are also some strains available ONLY as clones, fittingly referred to as ‘clone-only’ strains. However, these ‘clone-only’ stains can be particularly hard to get a hold of, especially in states with less lenient laws on marijuana. (4) “If you don’t live in a medical marijuana or legalized marijuana state like California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington, and you’ve heard of clone-only marijuana strains, it’s a little frustrating because usually you can’t get those clones unless you travel to those states and qualify as a permitted clone buyer under the state’s marijuana regulations.” Even if you can find a source for purchasing a clone-only strain -depending on the rarity and popularity of a certain strain- it may well cost a pretty penny to bring it in to your nursery. (5) “A single, legit commercial clone of a top-shelf, clone-only strain like Girl Scout Cookies or Cherry Pie can sell for as much as $140. But ultra-elite cuts shared in the top ranks of marijuana breeders and clone developers can sell for thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars each! Why so expensive? Unlike cannabis seeds, every clone from a premium marijuana plant is guaranteed to be a female cut from a unique motherplant.“

And as with any purchase, it’s very much buyer beware. Unless you’re dealing with an established shop or dispensary (many shops and dispensaries are now offering cuttings/clones as a service to their patrons… ask your budtender!), not only the question of quality and price must be considered... but also (unfortunately) the question of legitimacy. Beyond a visual checklist (several resources can be found online to guide you through the clone buying process like to double check that you’re purchasing a healthy plant, you’re at the mercy of the seller with regard to whether the strain you desire is truly represented by the little potted cutting you just bought. (6) “When you are looking for clones for sale in Colorado, California, or Michigan, there is no way to know for sure if the clone the person is selling you is really the strain they claim. Unless you are dealing with someone that is deperate for money people are usually honest about what strain they are selling”

Colorado Medical Marijuana Advertising Banned

Staff CMM - Wednesday, September 12, 2012
In a unanimous vote that lasted less than a minute, the Denver City Council has voted to ban all types of outdoor advertising for medical marijuana including billboards, posters, bus benches, windshield leaflets and sign twirlers. The Denver City Council also voted immediately afterwards to kill an alternate, more limited plan that would have blocked outdoor advertising within 1,000 feet of schools, parks and daycare facilities. The position of the Medical Marijuana Industry Group is that this will show good faith by businesses to fit into their communities. Businesses will still be allowed to advertise online, in newspapers and magazines and also at any charity events they sponsor. While the Cannabis Business Alliance is not happy with the vote outcome, they feel that clear rules have now been established that will enable them to move forward.

COPD Not A Major Side Effect Of Marijuana Use

Staff CMM - Friday, August 03, 2012
Conclusions drawn from a nearly 20 year study conducted by government-funded scientists has shown that smoking marijuana – whether for medical use or recreation – does not appear to affect lung function. The new research is said to be one of the largest studies to date on the effects of cannabis and whether long-term use causes pulmonary damage, specifically whether it is as harmful as smoking cigarettes. Researchers worked with over 5,000 people in three cities for a period of 20 years and were able to find that smoking regularly – the equivalent of up to a join per day over seven years – did not impair lung function. However, after a period of ten years, researchers did begin to see a decline in lung function, particularly among those who smoked more than one joint or equivalent per day as well as with those who also smoked cigarettes. Researchers believe that because THC has anti-inflammatory properties, the decrease in lung function among those smoking marijuana may have been staved off to a certain degree.

Oregon The Latest State To Join The Medical Marijuana Movement

Staff CMM - Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Oregon may soon join other states such as California and Colorado by legalizing marijuana for medical use. The Oregon Cannabis Tax Act has shown nearly twice the required amount of signatures it requires in order to make its way onto the ballot in November of 2012. Known as Initiative 9, the Tax Act will regulate cannabis not only for adult use, but will also license it for commercial sale. Farmers will see a definite benefit as it will allow them to grow it for biofuel, medicine, sustainable fiber and food uses. Although the Tax Act required at least 87,213 signatures in order to make it to the ballot, the Tax Act was turned in to the Oregon Secretary of State’s office with approximately 167,845 signatures, showing the large support group the Tax Act has in Oregon. The state will have 30 days to determine if enough of the signatures are valid to qualify the Tax Act for the ballot in November.

Recent Research Shows Medical Marijuana Benefits

Staff CMM - Saturday, July 28, 2012

In recent studies presented in ‘The Open Neurology Journal’ by the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research, conclusions have been drawn as to the actual benefit of marijuana in medical situations. Currently, medical marijuana uses are classified with the government as 'not tenable.' The study states that this federal classification, along with many of the political obstructions associated with it are considered a detrimental obstacle to marijuana’s medical process. Over the past ten years, the CMCR has conducted 13 studies showing the benefits of marijuana for a variety of serious illnesses including HIV, cancer, Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. The drug has proven beneficial to those afflicted with these and a variety of other illnesses in controlling and easing pain, reducing vomiting and nausea and increasing appetite in those suffering from these illnesses as well as from the side effects of chemotherapy and has proven to provide patients with long-term pain relief. The Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research aims to change the government’s classification of the drug with its findings.

Are Medical Marijuana Drivers a Road Hazard?

Todd Davis - Monday, November 21, 2011

Recently, a question has begun to arise among law officials and lawmakers in Colorado who work with medical marijuana laws in the state. Is a driver who is under the influence of medical marijuana a hazard on the road? The answer seems to be yes. New regulations have begun to present themselves in the form of large billboards seen along most major roadways such as Santa Fe Drive stating that anyone caught driving while under the influence of drugs – whether medically recommended or not, will be charged the same and prosecuted. Currently, a state Department of Public Safety group working with the issue is considering whether to re-introduce a bill limiting the amount of THC, the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana, a driver may have in their system when on the road. Earlier this year, when 2,600 blood samples were tested from drivers who had marijuana in their system, over 500 came back over the limit of 5 nanograms per milliliter, which is over the current per se limit. While most law officials agree that some sort of limit is needed, it has yet to be decided just what that limit should be.

Medical Marijuana in Colorado Becoming a Stinky Issue

Todd Davis - Wednesday, November 16, 2011

A common complaint by those opposed to medical marijuana in Colorado is perhaps the smell of marijuana in general. Most dispensary owners are aware of this problem and are instructed by law to provide a clear ventilation system that will filter out all smells of product cultivation outside of the establishment. However, what about outside the establishment? While Colorado law permits patients to use medical marijuana for a variety of physical ailments, it cannot thoroughly stop patients from using the product in public. There will always be festivals, gatherings, sit-ins and general get-togethers where those who simply want to smoke will do so regardless of others around them. This issue falls under the same area as cigarette smokers. While there will always be those who believe it is their right to enjoy their product regardless of where they are, there will also always be those who believe it infringes on their right to clear air to breathe, untainted by the smell of either marijuana or cigarette smoke. 

High Driving A hot Topic for Colorado Law Enforcement

Todd Davis - Tuesday, September 27, 2011

As the legalization and use of medical marijuana in Colorado grows to new heights, Colorado law enforcers are finding themselves busier than ever with traffic violations related to marijuana usage. While all states currently have a law against driving while impaired, there are some lawmakers in the state of Colorado who are proposing to set an impairment standard which would allow prosecutors to charge drivers with a DUI if they have 5 nanograms of THC per milliliter of blood while behind the wheel.  Currently, Nevada and Ohio have a limit of 2 nanograms of THC per milliliter for driving and 12 other states have a zero-tolerance policy for driving while under the influence of any illegal substance. Arizona, Illinois and Rhode Island are just a few of these states with a zero-tolerance policy. Colorado has yet to set a limit for driving while under the influence of THC, but until a law is passed, those driving while under the influence of marijuana beyond the state-allowed limit for impairment will be prosecuted.

State of Colorado Tightens Regulatory Belt on Dispensary Owners

Todd Davis - Wednesday, June 01, 2011



Owners of medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado are finding it harder and harder to keep their businesses going and profitable as the state continues to pass stricter rules and regulations for business operation. Recently, the state made it mandatory for dispensary owners to have video surveillance cameras on 24/7 over their sales counter to record each and every transaction as well as a requirement that each store grow at least 70 percent of its marijuana itself. Dispensary owners feel that they are under too much scrutiny and that there is a lack of privacy which will result in patients simply going back underground to buy their product.
