Hello, im helping a friend with terminal cancer with his grow. Even with terminal cancer he still won't let me grow more than 2 plants at a time (current limit here for "personal/non-dealer grow") which is frustrating, but it is what it is and he has a family and house etc. Anyway I got a dozen different CBD strains to try, Dinamed CBD by Dinafem is the first of the CBD ones we've tried. I also grew it alongside a Cinderella XX (Grimm Bros official feminised version of Cinderella 99). I did Beam's Test (Wiki) for the first time a couple days ago (5gm potassium hydroxide dissolved in 95mls of ethanol -- i used cheap methylated spirits which is 95% ethanol and it worked fine, and you can also use that "Everclear" stuff, and possibly others but I'm not a chemist and you don't want to mix the wrong stuff!) and that produced a very solid result for the Dinamed, and basically no reaction for the C99 - both results as to be expected. Beam's Test is very simple, quick, affordable, and no issues sourcing the two easy-to-buy materials, and after trying it myself I have to thoroughly recommend it to anyone who simply needs to know "does this bud have a significant amount of CBD?" it's basically a Yes/No test -- it turns violet/purple to CBD, but does not react at all to THC. Super handy! Unfortunately though, that's literally all Beam's Test tells you. A few months ago I spent literally two and a half months asking around trying to figure out how to do Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) - you can buy kits like AlphaCat etc but they're quite expensive given how very few tests they give you, but by reading their MSDS and manuals etc I was able to figure out what they were using, and with the help of the one person I could find who'd done it before was able to figure out the puzzle. Beam's Test gave me confidence that I'd get a good result from the TLC, and sure enough the next day I was able to confirm that my Dinamed CBD is a 1:1 CBD:THC, and with very healthy levels of both, as well as strong levels of CBG and CBC (both those two in the C99 also!). I've tested about 7 strains using TLC before and only seen healthy CBG levels in 1 before, so it was a pleasant surprise to see it again - in both strains! It's important to note that Dinamed CBD is supposed to be a SATIVA-dominant thin-leaf plant which is advertised as stable at around 20% CBD to 1% THC. I got a very-much INDICA-dominant phenotype (made even more obvious when growing alongside the very-sativa-leafed C99!), so clearly I did not get "the main Dinamed CBD" ... disappointing in one respect that this pheno doesnt offer the flexibility of a 20:1, but at the same time it's probably also a relief to know that even with this other pheno it's still packing a healthy amount of CBD, so to me that's a good sign in regards to "the main sativa pheno". Unfortunately this indica pheno didn't yield very well though - about 2oz, compared to the 4oz from the C99. Smells and tastes really nice, seems like a complex terp profile, and reminded me of a "perfume flavor" that I hadn't experienced since trying a strain called Sherry a decade ago. Dinamed is a descendent from the Dancehall strain. Anyway here's the TLC result. The Dinamed was at 62 days and harvested, while the C99 was only at 48 days (snipped off a sample) and am not expecting to harvest that until ~58, so I'm guessing the C99 is still packing on a bit more THC: It's important to note that I'm an amateur and don't work in science/chemistry, and don't use precise measurements, so you cannot compare one lane to another, but you can compare all the dots in any ONE lane, as, being not a quantitative but qualitative test, the RATIOS are fairly reliable and don't discriminate. You can easily see for example this is very close to a 1:1 ratio, probably something like 12% THC 12% CBD give or take 5%, but I think it's pointless trying to use TLC to get accurate percentages. Really need a lab with proper HPLC or GC equipment etc for that (and then you can get terpene profile too!), but you can still see how useful TLC is for any home user needing to know the RATIO of CBD:THC in their sample. I think it's a fantastic tool, especially in combination with Beam's Test which you can use to help determine if you even want to do a TLC - for example if hunting for CBD you might only want to do a TLC if Beam's Test comes up positive first.
