I revel in my canna nerdiness. Lol! Welcome to the discussion BeanTownFan420.
I believe that light plays a great part in the production of the plant's essential oils, I'm just not certain that it's photosynthesis running that show. Certainly photosynthesis is the process that drives plant energy stores, but the oil output may be something else altogether.
I'm not saying you're wrong, just that I have my doubts that photosynthesis is the creator of phytocannabinoids, which are believed to be part of the plant's protective shield.
I read about that virus. Neat little idea, even though it feels kinda loose and free and ever-so-convenient to explain chaos in the ancient world of botany. One of those things I’ll leave to the experts.
That portable analyser looks awesome and I totally want one! As I was checking it out though I noticed it’s only usable for material that’s 6-80% THC (my German translation comes from Google so could be wrong). It doesn’t specifically say the same about CBD but I suspect it’s the same. Not trying to rain on this awesome revelation, it’s just something I noticed.
