The aptly named Goliath is a varietal that doesn’t mess around and definitely doesn’t do anything by halves. This biblical behemoth reaches astronomical heights, produces high levels of cannabinoids, and ensures that farmers always stay within the legal THC requirements.
Sold by Sunbelt Hemp, a leading hemp seed retailer and researcher based in Georgia, Goliath is a high-yield, easy-growing hemp plant that has already found its way onto many farms across the United States.
The Goliath varietal is so-named because it can reach heights of 12 feet. It also produces dense and large buds, allowing for a sizeable yield.
Sunbelt Hemp recommends planting Goliath between late May and early June, depending on the location and climate. It should be planted at a rate of between 2,000 and 2,500 during these times, but as many as 3,000 can be planted if left until late July.
Goliath has a 99% germination rate and a 99.9% feminization rate. For optimal results, this hemp variety should be started in a greenhouse up to 4 weeks before you’re ready to plant in the fields. The flowers begin to show between July and September and are ready for harvest as little as 5 weeks later, with the plant life spanning between 5 and 6 months in total.
Goliath is a monstrous hemp varietal and can produce as much as 7 pounds of material per plant, making it a good choice for biomass production. It is also popular with CBD producers and is described as providing a medium to high potency.
This generally means an amount between 10% and 15%, although the exact potency will depend on a number of factors, including the climate, seeding date, time of harvest, location, soil quality, and more.
Sunbelt Hemp provides tips to help you with the seeding, growing, and harvesting, ensuring you get the most bang for your buck.
Tests have shown that Goliath remains well within the federal legal requirements for THC. However, there are no guarantees and farmers need to practice due diligence to ensure their harvest does not exceed the 0.3% levels.
Sunbelt Hemp has a very low minimum order of just 500 seeds. Goliath costs just $1 per seed when between 500 and 2,499 are purchased, but this drops to $0.85 for between 2,500 and 4,999, $0.70 for between 5,000 and 9,999, and $0.55 for more than 10,000.
If you plant at a rate of 2,000 per acre and have 10 acres to cover, you’ll pay just $11,000. All orders are shipped free of charge and are fully insured. The company ships to licensed farmers all over the United States and also deals with clients overseas.
