Late flowering varieties for fiber production

This type of hemp consists mostly of very vigorous and late-flowering varieties.

Late dioecious hemp can reach a considerable height and they have a good fiber-biomass ratio. Because of their vigour it is often necessary to have specific equipment for cutting the plants.

Nowadays they are also used with good results for the production of floral biomass from which cannabinoids and secondary metabolites of high interest for pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry can be obtained.

As a result of their vigour and late floweringthey generally accumulate more cannabinoids than other varieties.

Due to the low grain yield and the fact that they cannot complete the cycle profitably at all latitudes, the cost of certified seed for sowing is higher than other cultivar.
