BEYOND THE BRAIN – medical strain. Beyond the Brain is the definitive connoisseur high for the discerning cultivator. If you have tasted your share of sativas and are searching for the purity that only exceptional genetics can offer then you will appreciate this strain. Let Beyond the Brain open your doors of perception to new realms of awareness! This is so far the only strain out of our genetic repertoire where we are willing to break tradition and offer a better version as a limited collectors edition. Those who have never grown a Mandala strain may find BTB quite similar in terms of growth to what they usually see in their garden. But seasoned Mandala growers are used to expect amazing vigour and generous, if not marvellous, yields from our strains and rightly so! These outstanding traits have always featured high on our list of breeding goals along with other essentials such as potency. Beyond the Brain, however, is a modest plant that discreetly hides her secret until the very end, when all her inherent power is revealed as a true consciousness expanding herb of incredibly clarity and power. To preserve this undiluted, pure gateway to transcendental realms is our main intention in the future development of BTB, as we hope to infuse it with more dynamic growth over the coming years of this ongoing project. In the meantime, we would like to share this special high with you! Beyond the Brain requires a good light source. We recommend the standard 400W-600 HPS/m2. If you are aiming for a higher indoor yield than indicated this is of course possible via the usual techniques. For example, in soil cultivation you can extend the growth cycle to 6-8 weeks. In hydro the yield can be improved by switching to 12/12 after the plants reach an adequate size such as 25-30 cm. Pruning, SCROG and other such methods are only sensible if the plant receives the appropriate additional vegetative time to develop its shoots. The height of mature females in soil cultivation reaches approximately 75-95 cm based on 4 weeks vegetative growth under a 20 hour light cycle.
Since there is only moderate stretching this is a sativa that can be easily grown in a homebox too. The height of a Mandala strain is also always under your control by deciding when to switch to 12/12. For indoor soil cultivation you basically only need to provide quality horticultural soil and the correct container size. Beyond the Brain will grow by herself if you let her and is a low-maintenance strain. Although BTB gets off to a relatively slow start the mature plants show lasting health. They retain their fresh green foliage till the end of flowering and do not exhaust themselves like other varieties may do. This greatly simplifies plant care throughout flowering. BTB is not for growers who will feel motivated to fertilize her to death in order to force growth or extra bud development! If you extend the vegetative time then you may need to provide a mild feeding to top up nutrients in the soil in case you are not repotting soon. Experienced growers who are familiar with their soil brand and organic or mineral fertilizer will know what to do. If you are uncertain, simply go with the flow and repot your plants into fresh soil once they get rootbound. Hydroponics Use a low EC of 0.8-1.2 and adjust requirements on the basis of plant health and by comparing the EC of the drained nutrient solution with your fresh solution. This is a standard procedure that can be successfully applied to all Mandala strains and most cannabis plants in general. If your tap water is of low quality and already has a high EC you should use a household osmosis filter and mix the osmosis water 50-50 with tap water (experiment to see what ratio gives best results). Outdoor In the greenhouse Beyond the Brain will grow to a medium-range height and can be planted in an SOG (sea of green) style if required. For best results avoid uncontrolled pest infestation of spider mites or other sap-sucking insects, especially in a greenhouse where pests can reproduce unhindered by predator insects and wind & rain. When planted outdoor this strain is a good choice for warm temperate, mediterranean, and subtropical regions. Mold resistance is high.
POINT OF NO RETURN: is a medical strain. This exceptional medical strain should not be missing in any garden if you are looking for a one-hit wonder with a good yield and delicious aroma. Point of No Return (P.N.R.) delivers a beautiful crop of thick cone-shaped buds crowned by towers of resiny calyxes. The long head bud tapers at the end like a peak and has a sufficiently airy structure that contributes to the high mold resistance. Although this is not a large plant it focuses a tremendous amount of energy into bud development and has potential as a high yielder – especially in hydroponics, a greenhouse, or outdoor. P.N.R. grows to a broad christmas tree shape with very long leaf stalks that allow light to pass through the plant, thereby allowing close planting despite the branchy growth. Pruning the the bottom side branches at the first two internodes can be beneficial, especially if you intend to grow in SOG or hydroponics. Due to itâ€™s growth pattern P.N.R. may also be a good choice for SCROG and for cultivating a multi-branch plant. With 4 weeks of vegetative growth, under 400W HPS/m2 in quality soil, you can expect the plants to reach a height between 70-125cm and most will average between 90-100cm. To select the highest yielding mother plant with exceptional resin production we recommend focusing on the taller females. If you require shorter plants for a Homebox/grow tent/closet you can simply reduce the vegetative time to 3 weeks. The medical properties are very promising for persons who require the benefits of a narcotic or pain reducing strain. The easy growing/low maintenance feature typical of our Mandala genetics adds to the many positive traits of Point of No Return which medical growers will appreciate, especially if they are unable to care for their garden in an intensive way. Flowering time can be extended a few days to further enhance CBD levels. The high is first felt in the head and an immobilizing effect sets in – emptying the mind of all thoughts. There is literally no turning back once you inhale the first tokes of Point of No Return. Itâ€™s best to smoke P.N.R. sitting down! After about one hour the intense stony feeling abates leaving you in a pleasantly relaxed, dreamy state. You can experience the full medical benefits from the indica stone without uncomfortable side-effects such as a hangover the next day. The pain reducing properties work similar to a massage: at the onset of the high you may feel a heightened awareness of the discomfort zones in the body, this eventually gives way to a series of warm wave-like sensations that initiate the relaxation and pain relief phase. Cramp related pain responds well to P.N.R.â€™s soothing effect. The medical benefits are long lasting and can be felt for many hours. We recommend a calm environment to get the most out of the stress releasing and sleep inducing properties. Smoke this strain about Â½-1 hour before going to bed if you suffer from sleep disorders (experiment and see what works best for you). This is a goodnight stone that makes you wake up refreshed. We wish you sweet dreams!
Medical Marijuana Seeds can suppress pain and alleviate the symptoms of a wide range of illnesses and ailments, and is therefore being legalized in more and more U.S. states as well as other countries around the world.
As researchers, doctors, patients and growers continue to explore the possibilities of Medical Marijuana, the realization is beginning to dawn that Medical Cannabis has few to no side effects, especially when compared to prescription drugs.
