Back in April, we were crowned as Colorado’s inaugural champions of The Grow Off. The competition was based in science, as a laboratory tested plants for terpenes and THC%; yield was the third category.
We’re pleased to report that we won both the potency (THC%) and flavor (terpene) categories! Here are those results:
Potency (THC %):
- Herbal Cure – 23.777
- Veritas – 23.004
- Northern Lights – 22.924
As of 2015, Colorado’s average THC% was reportedly 18.7%. OG varieties typically test north of 20%.
Flavor (Terpene %):
- Herbal Cure – 2.0615
- The Clinic – 1.8603
- The Farm – 1.6506

The Herbal Cure provided some basic garden information that helped set their clone apart from the competition:
- They water their plants multiple times a day.
- The soil/base is coco.
- The grow rooms are small, 20 light rooms designed to dial in genetics and cultivate boutique cannabis. Smaller rooms allow for less variation throughout the growth process.
- The Grow-Off strain used an older vented light. The company will be using Gavitas for next year’s grow off.
- The colas on The Herbal Cure’s plants are some of the largest I’ve ever seen in a grow.
- They staked (not trellised) the plant.
- Above all, they gave the plant LOVE.
We’re pumped to be participating in the medical Grow Off right now and can’t wait to see how that turns out!!!
