AutoCBD

Discover the glory of uniformity

A compact, short-season hemp crop ideal for low-cost farming production and extraction.

AutoCBD Packaging

AutoCBD is a compact, short-season hemp crop ideal for low-cost farming production and extraction. Our flagship AutoCBD is a price-effective option for high-density in-row mechanized planting and easy harvest. AutoCBD matures in an average of 75 days, making it an optimal choice for staggered harvests or pairing with a photosensitive variety to achieve multiple crop cycles.

• Avoid industry bottlenecks—harvest in an average of 75 days
• Lower your risk with lab-verified feminization rates
• Suppress weeds with dense planting canopy
• Lower labor costs with mechanized harvest due to uniform, compact plant size

Highest feminization rates

With lab-verified feminization rates* of 99.98%+, you can avoid the risk of high-cost accidental pollination.

AutoCBD Hemp Field

Bred for yield, tested for compliance

The importance of obtaining a state compliant pre-harvest COA is paramount.

Our pre-harvest COA is compliant in Oregon. The 2021 Final Hemp Rule requires laboratories to provide a Measurement of Uncertainty (MU) and changes the THC threshold for negligence.

Contact your State Department of Agriculture to understand the local rules regarding testing and harvest windows.

Refer to the USDA Rule “Establishment of a Domestic Hemp Production Program” (01/19/2021) and the 2018 Farm Bill to understand the federal laws regarding hemp production and compliance.

Autoflower Growth Chart

Optimized for extraction

With a flower harvest index of 61%, AutoCBD plants produce more flowers per plant than stems and stalks, meaning less unwanted byproduct and higher value per pound for your processor.

Easy-to-grow compact size

Grow 22,000 plants per acre for better weed suppression and more biomass per acre than orchard-style photosensitive varieties. Dependent on your cropping system, plant population may range from 15,000-30,000 plants per acre.

2020 U.S. Trial Regions

Trialed across the US

We partner with growers, universities, and private businesses across the country to ensure we supply only quality-assured seeds and to confidently offer the best placement and management advice for grower success.

Short-season crop

Reaching maturity in an average of 75 days, AutoCBD is an optimal choice for staggered harvests or pairing with a photosensitive variety.

Order Phylos AutoCBD

We recommend planting approximately 22,000 seeds per acre, dependent on your planting and cropping preferences. AutoCBD is available in quantities as low as 1 acre.

* The feminization rate of AutoCBD is >99.98% based on lab results showing zero males in 4,304 plants. It is expected that the feminization rate is much higher but would require larger samples (>43K to get a rate of >99.998%, >430K for a rate of >99.9998%).

AutoCBD Resources

Our hemp seeds produce stable, CBD-rich female plants; and are thoroughly tested to ensure cannabinoid content, feminization, germination, purity, and genetic results meet or exceed our quality standards.

Autoflower CBD Primer Guide

Growing Preferences for High CBD Cannabis

Day neutral hemp, scientifically known as C. ruderalis or colloquially referred to as “autoflowering” hemp, prefers long, dry, and sunny days. During establishment, autoflower hemp requires regular watering to maintain even moisture. The soil should never drop below 50% of capacity, and on hot days (above 80° F) should stay above 80% for optimal establishment.

Early applications of a balanced vegetative feeding program are critical to developing a well branched, large hemp plant. The goal is to create as many flowering sites as possible within 3-5 weeks of growth, at which point the autoflower cannabis plants will begin to show signs of flowering. At this time it is best to maintain a strong vegetative feeding program and begin to slowly introduce more phosphorus, potassium, and micronutrients to prepare for the hemp plants reproductive (flowering) phase. The plants should continue to grow quickly and stack up flower sites from weeks 3-8. During Weeks 8-12 the flowering sites will bulk up and become dense, especially at the very end of the cycle. It is important to let the autoflower cannabis plants finish and fully mature before harvesting in order to maximize the biomass yield and cannabidiol content of the crop.

Plants that grow during the summer when the days are long, warm and sunny will ripen and be ready to harvest quickly. In the winter, the shorter and colder days with less light can add anywhere between an extra 10-20 days of time to harvest. Autoflowering cannabis plants have a strong appetite for light! The more light they receive, the faster they grow and come to maturity. True autoflowering plants can come to maturity even under a 24 hour daytime light cycle (no darkness/night). Weak, low watt lighting typically used to keep clone plants “vegging” will not speed up the growth of autoflower plants nor prevent them from flowering.

One of the most important parts of growing day-neutral hemp varieties is to minimize transplant- shock. Any shock resulting from improper transplanting, can significantly contribute to reduced yields. Unlike other agricultural crops, especially vegetables and flowers, autoflowering hemp varieties want to be transplanted as fast as equipment and handling will allow for, or within 10 days of emergence. Please see our propagation guide for more information.
