Autoflowering cannabis varieties automatically switch from the vegetative growth stage to the flowering stage within a predictive time frame.
Las Vegas, NV, Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — MJ Holdings, Inc. (OTC Pink: MJNE) (the “Company”, “we”), a leader in the Nevada cannabis market, is pleased to announce that, on Friday September 6th, we harvested our first autoflower test grow. We planted a small number of autoflowering seeds as part of our second three-acre hybrid mesh-canopy marijuana crop to test the ability of autoflowering plants to thrive in the harsh desert conditions in the Amargosa Valley.
Autoflowering cannabis varieties automatically switch from the vegetative growth stage to the flowering stage within a predictive time frame, as opposed to the ratio of light to dark hours required with photo-period dependent/short-day strains. Many autoflower plants typically harvest in less then 10 weeks from planting.
Noted Company CEO Paris Balaouras: “With the ongoing pursuit of maximizing our three-acre facility, we planted autoflowering strains mainly for test purposes. The autoflowering strains grow much faster – in as little as two months from seed to harvest. In addition, their compact size makes them much more manageable. Because these strains grow so quickly, we can anticipate multiple plantings each year, which should increase our overall production capabilities.”
In June and July, the Company planted more than 5,000 plants, utilizing eight different strains of marijuana, planting only the best performers from our 2018 crop. Our ability to get our plants into our grow facility a full month earlier than last year should facilitate higher yields and greater THC concentrations. The Company anticipates beginning our harvest in mid-October with a planned completion of the entire harvest by late November.
Mr. Balaouras added: “We are happy with the initial results from the harvested plants. We replanted the autoflowers yesterday for an additional 2019 harvest.”The THC/CBD oil derived through processing harvested marijuana is the primary active ingredient for all marijuana based products, including: edibles, concentrates and vapes. Las Vegas, as a leading tourist destination, is one of the fastest growing adult-use marijuana markets in the U.S.
