Cannabis Chemotypes


Cannabis is generally classified by type. With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, we are now moving into a world where type I varieties no longer dominate the cannabis market. In this new market, the cannabis type classification system is needed more than ever. Without a consistent language to differentiate the chemical makeup of cannabis chemotypes, consumers and industry insiders will struggle to communicate on the same level.

Type I is THC dominant. 

Type II is 1:1 THC to CBD.

Type III is CBD dominant. 

Type IV is CBG dominant. 

 Type V is cannabinoid free

Last but not least are the varins, which include THCV, CBDV, & CBGV. These are new minor-rich varieties of which additional chemotypes may need to be created.

(We produce Type 3, Type 4 and the Varins at our HEMPBEST farm and offer products made from these chemotypes).
