Ruderalis

Ruderalis is a low-THC cannabis variety that is primarily selected by breeders for its CBD-rich genetics. Unlike Cannabis sativa and indica, which use light cycles to flower, ruderalis is an “autoflowering” variety, meaning it flowers with age. Originating in Russia, ruderalis is a hardy plant that can survive harsh climates.Ruderalis is a low-THC cannabis variety that is primarily selected by breeders for its CBD-rich genetics.

Ruderalis hemp plants originated in Siberia and had the unique trait of
automaticallycompleting their entire life cycle in just 2-3 months. This was an adaptation to the short summers and cold harsh arctic winters, but an industrious grower realized this trait could be useful to home growers. The initial
Ruderalis plantsproduced tiny buds and didn’t make much THC, but were carefully bred with photoperiod strains to increase their potency and bud quality while retaining their lack of a need for a dark period.
