Is cannabis ruderalis good for making hash?

An introduction.

Medical cannabis is used when it is a variety of cannabis that contains an effective amount of active cannabinoids and is used for medicinal purposes. The therapeutic benefits of the active ingredients of this plant are therefore in the foreground when using the term ‘medical cannabis’.

The sorts.

CANNABIS SATIVA. Hemp with a high fiber content, tall and originally from the equatorial regions (Thailand, southern India, Jamaica, Mexico ...). This type of cannabis is known for its medium to high THC content (THC =? 9 tetrahydrocannabiol), is one of the psychoactive cannabinoids - mainly intoxicating constituents of the hemp plant) and a relatively low CBD content (CBD = cannabidiol, is hardly psychoactive Cannabinoid). EFFECT. The Cannabis Sativa strains give the brain an energetic "high" effect. A so-called cerebral effect that can be felt both mentally and physically. These strains are most effective in treating e.g. loss of appetite, chronic pain, depression, nausea / nausea, and migraines.

CANNABIS INDICA. Hemp with a medium to high THC content and a relatively high proportion of medically effective cannabinoids or cannabidiol (CBD) and low growth. This type of cannabis is found in Afghanistan, Pakistan and northwestern India and was developed for the production of hashish. EFFECT. Cannabis indica strains act like a sedative. You feel “stoned” and muscle tension is reduced. The indica strains are most effective in treating muscle spasms and symptoms of tremor (e.g., multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's), chronic pain, arthritic and rheumatic stiffness and swelling, insomnia and anxiety.

CANNABIS RUDERALIS. Wild hemp, insensitive to light, low levels of THC / CBD, short flowering time, autoflowering and native mainly to Eastern and North Asian Europe. A culture of Cannabis Ruderalis can be planted and maintained with little effort and can be replanted directly after harvest - since flowering begins depending on the growing time instead of - as with other genera - the seasonal change. EFFECT. Contains very small amounts of THC and CBD, so using it in its pure form is ineffective.

HYBRID. Crosses of indica and sativa strains share characteristics from both types of cannabis. Plant breeding (creating hybrids, developing new varieties) has done a good job over the last few decades, developing a large number of hybrids that have been crossed from sativa, indica and / or ruderalis types. Whether outdoor, indoor, hydro, soil, substrate, large, small, autoflowering, rudimentary, cannabinoid profiles, taste or color, there is a specially bred variety for almost every need. Ruderalis hybrids are particularly popular with cannabis growers because they are highly resilient, self-blooming and mature extremely quickly. Crosses of Indica and Ruderalis are currently one of the earliest outdoor plants to ripen. Ruderalis hybrids are also well suited for medical use, as they contain a relatively low concentration of active ingredients with associated psychotropic effects and are ideal in cases where the therapeutic benefits of CBD are preferred.

The choice of the variety.

During the day, when wakefulness is desired, the “high” effects of the sativa strains make sense, while the indica strains can often be the best choice for the evening and night because of their relaxing effects. When selecting suitable hybrid varieties, many patients can be imparted the best traits from both varieties.

In order to make a choice between these different medicinal cannabis strains, the clinical picture or the nature of the symptoms should be precisely determined in advance. It should also be noted that people differ from one another in their physiological disposition and can subjectively experience the medical use of cannabis differently. A qualified doctor will help here, because the information is only used for basic orientation in the plant jungle.
