How to Grow CBD Compassion Seeds
Long, finger-like leaves define this sativa strain which turns from a dark green to a lovely, toasted orange color when flowering. She grows to medium height and can produce a good, medium-large yield under the right conditions. Because of the unusual mix in this strain, the time to flowering is a bit longer than average, but the resulting resinous and aromatic bud is well worth the wait.
