** It depends on the cultivation techniques. and the harvesting method used.
The seed, if stored in a cool and dry place, retains the germination capability for the following year as well.
*** The seed booking season runs from November to March, the seed purchased outside the distribution campaign has an extra cost of 10% compared to the original price.

Cannabidiol (CBD) in the FINOLA oilseed hemp variety
For industrial scale production, a dioecious field crop of FINOLA will typically have about 1-3% CBD in the dried vegetative material, and may exceed 5% in some circumstances. These results are highly dependent on the method of cultivation, the time of harvest, the type of sample that is being analyzed, and the method of analysis.
This recent opinion on CBD from Ruokavirasto followed a statement made by the Finnish Medicines Agency (Fimea) on 27 June 2019: “Cannabidiol (CBD) is a known medicinal substance and used as a medicine. A preparation that contains cannabidiol is equated to a prescription medicine in Finland. Each preparation is assessed separately, and Fimea decides, by means of an individual classiLcation decision, whether the preparation concerned is to be considered as a medicine in Finland.”. So, without any justification, and at a time a time when Finnish policy makers should have been enjoying their summer holidays, CBD was categorised as a medicine. No one was there to object.
– Laboratory competence- is the lab reliable for this type of analysis?
So, which is it? Did they find evidence for “potential adverse health effects“, or do they not know “enough to be sure about” anything. You decide!
As of 19 November 2020, according to the European Union’s Court of Justice in Luxembourg, CBD is not considered to be a narcotic in the European Union.
For carefully tended female flowers without seed, the amount of CBD is typically between 5-10%, and may even exceed 15% in some apical samples.
– The cultivation environment; indoors or outdoors?
In the European Union, policy makers are required by law to make evidence-based decisions. So far, we are waiting for our policy makers to comply with that law and justify their opinions. Otherwise, it would be a violation of our basic human right to good administration for European policy makers to continue with faith based decisions. It is also worth noting that this is the only human right violation where a civil servant can be held personally responsible for damages caused by their personal opinions and faith based decisions. If you are such a civil servant, and you decide to remain ignorant of the facts, then perhaps we will see you in court.
