Ultimate List of Hemp Strains

What is the ultimate list of hemp strains? Believe it or not, not all hemp plants are created equal. Varying hemp strains can determine the formulation, effects and quality of a CBD extract. The reasons for this are plenty – varying levels of CBD content, terpenes located in the hemp strain, overall grow quality of a particular hemp strain – these are all factors in creating a particular hemp derived product.

What’s more, a particular hemp strain can also determine the legality of a hemp product. Different hemp strains tend to have varying levels of THC – still federally illegal in the United States. If a hemp strain is grown that tends to have a higher level of THC, it can lead to a “hot crop.” This means that a test of a hemp grow can be tested and will have to be legally destroyed if THC levels are above .03%. Similar to this, other hemp strains can be grown to contain higher levels of CBG, CBN, and various terpenes to determine a unique hemp product.

In this episode of extrakTALKS, Dr. Jon and Randall discuss the ultimate list of hemp strains. This episode will cover listener submitted survey questions on what strains farmers prefer to grow, which strains have the best flavor, aroma, and cannabinoid content, what they do to ensure the best grow possible and more.

Randall Thompson 00:36
Okay, thank you for being here. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for being here. We had a survey.

Dr. Jon 00:40
Yeah, we did. It was good to who got lots of respondents.

Randall Thompson 00:43
We got a lot of respondents,

Dr. Jon 00:44
Yeah it was good.

Randall Thompson 00:45
I have not heard of most of those.

Dr. Jon 00:47
Yeah, well, I looked on the internet. And I was like, Okay, is there anybody done a survey on ultimate hamstrings or people’s preferences? There’s nothing there. So this is the first Oh, even on Google,

Randall Thompson 00:58
we we break ground every day,

Dr. Jon 01:00
every day

Randall Thompson 01:01
Yeah. So yeah. And it, it hurts.

Dr. Jon 01:04
By the way, having having said that, since we’re on that topic, survey, we’re gonna keep the survey open. Oh, and so it’s just going to continuously roll, we’ll post it on our website. And it’ll just continuously roll. And maybe, maybe, at the end of the season, we’ll get even more respondents.

Randall Thompson 01:19
I think that would be good, because then we’ll see all the strains and we’ll be able to compartmentalize and then I think we should have a big grand prize or something for something cool.

Dr. Jon 01:29
You know what’d be really cool as if we got all the strains that that people have and get like little snippets, little flowers of them so that we can just, you know, take terpene profiles of them and smell them.

Randall Thompson 01:38
Okay, so so far, how many times have we used the word cool? I think it’s just because in the first few minutes of this show,

Dr. Jon 01:46
yes. That’s called the entourage effect. I think entourage.

Randall Thompson 01:51
I can’t feel my feet. Thank you for being here. Oh, by the way, Linda Kelly from Big Stone City, South Dakota. I didn’t even know there was a big stone City, South Dakota. There’s

Dr. Jon 02:03
Where’s that?

Randall Thompson 02:05
I don’t know. Hmm. Linda Kelly, welcome. Thank you. And she want a 10 pack of relief CBG seeds for taking the hemp strain surveys. We so those are gonna be randomly selected.

Dr. Jon 02:17

Randall Thompson 02:17
We won’t harass you too much.

Dr. Jon 02:19

Randall Thompson 02:20
Or at all?

Dr. Jon 02:21
Well, she got CBG seeds. That’s pretty cool.

Randall Thompson 02:22
That’s a great harassment.

Dr. Jon 02:24

Randall Thompson 02:24
I mean, it’s relief. CBG seeds. I like that. So Linda, kudos. Good job. Today, again, we are going to be talking about the ultimate list of hemp strains. That’s kind of cool.

Dr. Jon 02:37
Yeah, it’s it’s a little bit mislabeled a little bit, because we’re going to be talking about the survey results. We’re going to talk about what people you know, what they were looking for in the strains, all that stuff. And I think that here’s what I predict I when we, we get like, you know, 300-400 respondents, I think that then we will be able to publish the ultimate list. Oh, really cool. So yeah, yeah, we only had 53 respondents. But 53 is a lot, but just starting,

Randall Thompson 03:03
I mean, let’s list them. And then we can have people rate them. They’re all they’re all there and you can try them all. Try them all. We’ll do that. So we’re going to be covering things like hemp strains, hemp biomass. We’re going to talk about Wisconsin hemp flower because that’s where we are. We’re going to talk a lot about terpenes hemp terpenes strain terpene profiles. Hi, Myc-

Dr. Jon 03:25

Randall Thompson 03:26
thank you. Hi myrcene strains.

Dr. Jon 03:28
Here’s a trivia question for you guys. Okay,

Randall Thompson 03:31
so 72 was that number right?

Dr. Jon 03:39
We’re gonna keep going so about it will

Randall Thompson 03:41
Did you like the answer. Okay, I know. For you it’s CBD THC ratio. hemp harvest. high CBD hemp strains, high CBD strains, CBD strains, and smokable hemp flower.

Dr. Jon 03:58
Okay, that’s what we’re gonna be discussing.

Randall Thompson 03:59
That’s a lot. There’s more. There’s more.

Dr. Jon 04:03

Randall Thompson 04:03
I thought we go ahead.

Dr. Jon 04:05
Wait, there’s more.

Randall Thompson 04:06
There’s more.

Dr. Jon 04:06
Yeah, I got them all. Oh, yeah.

Randall Thompson 04:08
I think I hit them all.

Dr. Jon 04:09
Well, let’s, let’s Okay, let’s get into this.

Randall Thompson 04:11
So here’s the only other thing before as before I turn it over to the table, man. I mean, Dr. T. I mean, ultimately, you got to turn it up. If you’re gonna use the sound effects far away I know we have all this stuff it is there’s a lot of stuff here. It’s making my eyes water in a good way. Sorry. Okay. fun and safe place ask all your questions. Let’s keep going there will be a replay check out our all of our resources live tour CBD jam session extraction guide, distillation guide, we’ve got our calculators, library, lots of calculators, and mini courses are coming. So we’ve got a lot going. So Introduce yourself. Let’s do it. And the other thing I was going to say Even though this is the ultimate hemp strains, I think the CBD will alleviate any strain.

Dr. Jon 05:06
I think so. That’s the whole point of it.

Randall Thompson 05:07
Right, exactly.

Dr. Jon 05:09
So let’s get started here. All right, let’s

Randall Thompson 05:11
go. It’s all your first of all, how

Dr. Jon 05:13
you like the color? Does it look like a sun? Like the rising sun? a full moon, a super moon?

Randall Thompson 05:19
Oh, I like that.

Dr. Jon 05:20

Randall Thompson 05:21
that’s really good.

Dr. Jon 05:22

Randall Thompson 05:22
that’s the painter coming out in you. Yeah, I

Dr. Jon 05:24
guess so. So there’s the ultimate. Okay, so

Randall Thompson 05:26
we have scientific creative.

Dr. Jon 05:28
A couple was three, four weeks ago, we were thinking, Okay, well, what’s our topic? We had a meeting on what topics we were going to have. And we kind of did a planning session, right? And this was one of the things so we decided, Okay, well, we need to have a hemp survey to find out what people like because one of the topics was, you know, all about hemp strains and in what people are looking for things. So we had our social media manager, Jared, who does a gojira job. He basically came up with a, you know, a list of questions and list of answers, you know, drop down, and he pulled our audience. Okay, so what was really cool is, we got respondents from all over the world.

Randall Thompson 06:09

Dr. Jon 06:10
Central America, South America, Europe, Eastern Europe. We got we there. It’s scattered all over the world, which is really, really cool. So I didn’t even know we had listeners all over the world like that. But we do know. Yeah,

Randall Thompson 06:26
absolutely. Do shout out to everybody.

Dr. Jon 06:28

Randall Thompson 06:28
Asia, Africa, all the continents. Australia.

Dr. Jon 06:32
Yes. New Zealand. But we didn’t have any respondents from Japan. I don’t think they grow hemp there.

Randall Thompson 06:37
Well, they do want to talk to people. Okay.

Dr. Jon 06:39
Yeah, I so I would like I’d like to say

Randall Thompson 06:41
it’s right next to the matcha fields.

Dr. Jon 06:45
Okay, all right.

Randall Thompson 06:46
And matcha rocks, by the way, and I mushroom up my matcha with some chaga.

Dr. Jon 06:51
Okay, nobody cares, comment, no comment.

Randall Thompson 06:54
I know, nobody cares. That’s okay. Okay, that doesn’t prevent me from saying it.

Dr. Jon 06:58
What do we look for in a strain? Oh, that’s that’s the first question that was on there. And there were a bunch of canned answers in there. So the second one is, what terpenes do you want from the strains? Okay, what’s the biggest issue you faced with the strains? In other words, you were growing? And then you had an issue with what you planted? Basically, how to get it to grow better how to get a higher yield? Or how do you get the flavor dialed in that kind of stuff. Okay. And then what was the determining factor in the purchase? Okay. And then of the seeds, we’re talking about the seeds specifically? Sure. And, you know, the strain that you did, I, you know, I think a lot of people research the strains they go, and they they look for, you know, what was reputable? Right. And, and a lot of times, they’ll go to the internet, they’ll, and then they’ll look at reviews and everything. But sometimes you just you miss something. And so what we’re trying to do here is raise awareness as to what you might miss when you are looking for strain. Okay. And then what is your favorite variety? So these are the questions that we asked, asked the crew. And, you know, in my view, the we got 53 respondents here, let me take a look here. 53 respondents, 15 countries Look at that. And they’re, they’re from all over the place. So it’s pretty cool. We had, basically, because some of them were in our database. We know, we know, we know, for example, some of them were farmers. So we’re for Canada, from Canada. So they were LPs. And then because they registered when you register, we know you know who you are, and stuff like that. So and then some of them were manufacturers, so we kind of got a nice smattering, great. Yeah, it wasn’t just the farmers. But I like that those guys would be the only ones who would answer but no, no, it wasn’t the case.

Randall Thompson 08:35
Probably too busy right now.

Dr. Jon 08:36
Well, yeah. Well, that they’re out there all harvesting right now. So that’s when we’re getting this. So yeah, so anyway, so that’s it. And we’re gonna keep this survey open. It’s going to be really cool. Keep answering, I feel that you probably will plug it every now and then. So you guys are reminded by it. But but we have, you know, just a native traffic on our website. And then maybe we’ll do some Facebook posts and things like that. We’ll we’ll see if we can continue this. I’d like to see a whole bunch of, you know, a whole bunch of data coming out of it.

Randall Thompson 09:10
And let’s, let’s get some competition with your friends. Invite your friends see what their favorite strains are.

Dr. Jon 09:15
Yeah, exactly. We’ll share. Okay, so we’ll have another follow up to this. Maybe when we hit maybe 300 responses or something like that. Let’s go up and see how it goes. So anyway, so that’s, that’s just it. So the first question, what do you look for in a hemp strain? So look at this, it says here, you got quality. And so number one was quality. So this is count.

Randall Thompson 09:40

Dr. Jon 09:40
Okay. And then we’re just adding up so the over the 53. That’s how many responded to that particular option. Okay.

Randall Thompson 09:47
Oh, that’s interesting.

Dr. Jon 09:48
You can see that. As the sample size gets larger and larger and larger, we ought to be able to get, you know, even better statistics here,

Randall Thompson 09:57
but that doesn’t surprise me though. That can quality is pretty good. Yeah,

Dr. Jon 10:01
quality is that high. So people are looking when they’re looking at a strain. They’re really looking for Okay, what is the quality of the terpenes? How does it smell? Which is interesting, because here we have all this stuff here. That is good. That’s a wonderful,

Randall Thompson 10:13
very smell. wonderful aroma.

Dr. Jon 10:15
Yeah. And so the question is, okay, so here’s some seeds right here. How do you know that that seed is going to produce an aroma that comes from this plant, or example? Now that plant we picked that plant specifically, because you can see it’s got some genetics, it’s got some issues with maybe some viruses or something. But we’ll get into that in just a little bit. This wouldn’t fall into the problem problem. But you can see there’s little tiny flowers there. So this is just just starting looking green. That is, you know,

Randall Thompson 10:43
that’s beautiful. Yeah.

Dr. Jon 10:44
Anyway, so how do you know that this is going to produce that, right, so with the right strands, we grew a whole bunch of, I think we grew like maybe 40 acres of one particular variety last year, and it came out, we got really nice buds good yield, you know, it went late into the season. But when we got it, it didn’t have it didn’t have the flavor, or the aroma profile that we really wanted, you know, it had, it was little less than aroma. So it didn’t have any of that skunky smell at all or anything along those lines. So, but when we extracted It, it, it had a good aroma to it. So you know that, you know, sometimes that’s kind of interesting. So you can see, number one was quality and terpenes. People want to have a good yield, obviously, right? So, you know, you don’t want to have a plant that’s so small that it’s not going to yield you know, maybe a quarter pound, you know, per plant or something like that. You’re gonna you know, so some people that when in good climates and everything that they’re getting, like a you know, pound and a half two pounds of plant. I’ve never actually heard of two pounds of plant one pound the plan is probably a lot but yeah, I’m sure I’m sure there’s someone in our audience who’s gone. Two pounds of flower per plant. I don’t know, maybe they’d almost have to, you know,

Randall Thompson 12:01
would that be him foie gra, I guess?

Dr. Jon 12:05
Sorry, definitely. You’d have to prop it up, right? Yeah,

Randall Thompson 12:09
that’s gonna be

Dr. Jon 12:11
okay. If somebody has a two pound two pounder flower plant. We’d love to see.

Randall Thompson 12:16
I’d love to see take pictures, send us pictures. Right. I’m guessing Jared would be all over that.

Dr. Jon 12:22
I don’t think you know, I probably when something that big. you’d you’d almost have to extract it because I, you know, the flowers would be so big. I mean, there’s not be no way to Yeah, you know, I don’t know. Anyway, so quantity, it’d be kind of like a you know, how they grow those those big mushrooms? Yep. And the bigger they are the the more expensive they are they Oh, yeah. Imagine like, wouldn’t it be cool if there was a bug like this big? That’s that. That would be that’s big. That would be big. There may be issues with like mold growing in the, you know, in the crevices? So maybe that’s an issue of some anyway, so quantity high yield, I’ll stop talking here. You know, okay, quantity, high yield, weight, quality, quality terpenes. So this is where they had to. Okay, so these people, they, they, it was actually a combination. So by far these two are the ones right? It’s because you really had to add these together onto here. Yes. So this is a combo. Okay. If I had had more time, I would have broken them up and added that but I actually so I would need to add another five on to, you know, six, seven on to these ones. So that would have been really great. And then so that would have made these two characteristics dominate. Clearly sure fibers see there are people who are you know, growing specifically for fiber. Yes. There is a great fiber market, by the way, huge

Randall Thompson 13:41
industrial hemp.

Dr. Jon 13:42
Yeah. export market. That’s a part of the trade deal. Obviously, that was that was ratified. So there are, for example, there’s Chinese buyers looking to buy fiber. So if you are in in that, and then also there’s great USDA programs for export of fibers and for export and you can get you know, they will they’re different programs, and I know that you can actually, once you have the agreement, you can actually get pre paid on the agreement, it’s guaranteed would be nice. Oh, it is wonderful. So botanical or farming exports is a really great

Randall Thompson 14:20
there’s a lot I’ve had people in here farmers and end investors both coming in even last week, I’ve got more this afternoon, but they talk about the industrial side of it and then they they think top the crop. So that’s they and they harvest that for the hemp, right that we’re used to. But the rest of the plant is all right for industrial use, and they use everything down to the roots.

Dr. Jon 14:44
Yeah, right. Isn’t it cool?

Randall Thompson 14:46
It is cool.

Dr. Jon 14:47
So that’s, that’s the fiber and seed. I mean, that’s a obviously they’re putting it into, you know, natural, natural. I mean, we had a guy here a couple weeks ago who delivered Refer to us and gave me a couple like hemp, hemp sweatshirts and hemp shirts. And they were really nice. Oh, yeah, every so often. They’re really great. So anyway, we probably do some business with him. But yeah, anyway, so

Randall Thompson 15:12
they’re turning some of that into like Kevlar. It is don’t try shooting somebody with wearing a head shirt though. It’s not that strong.

Dr. Jon 15:23
But not that strong. Yes. So then there’s a lot of people are looking for quick turnaround. In other words they want to have, they want to have auto flowers. So what an auto flower is, is you grow it in, it doesn’t really rely on the cycle of the sun. Flower.

Randall Thompson 15:38
Well, that’s interesting,

Dr. Jon 15:39
because usually you need 12 on 12 off in order for it to start flowering, meaning the sun has to be up off 12. Okay, so that’s so an auto flower will just flower on its own. So that’s pretty sweet. The plants are typically smaller, you know, and less stock and less pound per plant. But one great thing about auto flowers that I’ve seen is you can have a greater density of, you can put them closer together. So instead of doing you know, maybe, you know, 500 to 1000 per acre, you’re doing you know, 2000 per acre or 2500 per acre.

Randall Thompson 16:13

Dr. Jon 16:13
So it’s you know, they’re they’re very dense eight inches centers. Yeah, or 12 inches center. So that’s pretty cool. So then you got quick turnaround UI and look at that these guys. autoflowers quantity. Oh, these are people who had all of everything, all the all the above. Look at that.

Randall Thompson 16:30

Dr. Jon 16:31
quick turnaround quantity, quality and fiber, Seed. So if I was going to redo this, this probably would have been better in a percentage plot. Yeah. Because then it would have it would have counted all the all the

Randall Thompson 16:45
Well, we’re gonna hold this against you for life. Okay.

Dr. Jon 16:48
But you know, you have to add this on there. So anyway, that’s it. So that’s, uh, that’s the what they’re looking for. I think quality quality wins, by far.

Randall Thompson 16:57
Oh, yeah. Because even in the last one, the only thing that’s off of the last one is fiber seed. Right. So, so fiber received would be the least

Dr. Jon 17:05
Right, right.

Randall Thompson 17:06
So quick turnaround.

Dr. Jon 17:08
Yeah. So when you go and bind, for example, you’re looking for look for an auto flower you’re looking for, hey, show me what this is gonna smell like, Can you send me a bud so I can smoke it or sample it or taste it? And then I would show me a plant. So I can actually see what this looks like. And how long does it take? Okay, so if it takes too long, and you’re in a short growing season, you’re going to need to, you know, you’re going to need that by an autoflower. And if you’re not, if you’re in a longer growing season, you’re going to 90 days or something like that, then you can just do a regular plant.

Randall Thompson 17:33
Sure. And I think that this table is good. It just what this represents to me is that the the respondents, half of the respondents played by different rules than the other half, probably. Yeah, because there’s one half selected one and the other selected as many as they wanted to. Right. That’s true.

Dr. Jon 17:55
I’m actually surprised at the number of fiber people. Yeah, that’s pretty cool.

Randall Thompson 18:01
That is for just standalone.

Dr. Jon 18:03
Yeah, sure. Okay, so that’s that. Um, what are your current favorite varieties?

Randall Thompson 18:09

Dr. Jon 18:10
look at that. That’s pretty look at look at all the colors. I like the pastel.

Randall Thompson 18:15
I want to sing again.

Dr. Jon 18:18
You know what I notice here that these are not listed here because they probably didn’t have room there. But there’s a whole bunch of them here. So we got at the bottom here. The big ones. Okay. Sour space, candy, gelato, tea. One A lot of people are doing betemit CBD Sativa, OG Kush, and super haze and lifter. That’s that those strains 1234 times a

Randall Thompson 18:41
Oregon CBD up there.

Dr. Jon 18:43
Yeah, but okay. Yeah, yeah, that’s true. Oregon CBD. Oh, anyway,

Randall Thompson 18:46
9.6. Now, it looks like we’ve got a 4-way tie- 5 way tie for 9.6.

Dr. Jon 18:52
Okay, so you get 75% of all the strains really tied up in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 different strains.

Randall Thompson 19:01

Dr. Jon 19:01
That’s kind of amazing. Yeah,

Randall Thompson 19:03
you got all these other little ones? Yeah, that’s actually pretty interesting for that many respondents.

Dr. Jon 19:08
Yeah, lots of different varieties, I kind of wonder if they’re all just the same seed pachaged up differently. I know that that’s not the case. Okay. But it could be the case, if you had, you know, you gotta, you gotta, you got to kind of watch out. Um, one of the things that you look for, obviously, with a favorite variety is, you know, did you get a lot of males. So if you have, you know, if you are sure growing acreage first, you don’t want to have to walk through all of that, though, and pull the males but a lot of people do that. They walk in, they pull the males. And then they’ll take they’ll grow a little plot off to the side, and they’ll just replace that one that they pulled out with a with one that they grew off on the side. Oh, well, so that it’s a nice looking field. So that’s good, but you can see I mean, yeah, so all of these will have a different flavor and flavor and aroma profile for sure.

Randall Thompson 19:56
I love some of these names.

Dr. Jon 19:58
Yeah, the lifter right here. We grew. Some of them. That I mean it was it was pretty good it we harvested really late and it ended up going hot on us. So we had to destroy that that portion of it but it was really beautiful. It was we had to but yeah, so that was but it was it was it was. I think that if you Yeah, if you make sure that you have your time your harvest proper. Sure. So you don’t have that. So

Randall Thompson 20:28
yeah, anyway, you don’t want kind of cool. You don’t want it Hot.

Dr. Jon 20:30
So what is your favorite types of terpenes from hemp?

Randall Thompson 20:34
Oh, look at this. See? Now this doesn’t surprise me from the last slide. There’s a lot of fruity.

Dr. Jon 20:39
You smell fruity, you

Randall Thompson 20:41
know from the last slide.

Dr. Jon 20:42
Oh, yeah,

Randall Thompson 20:43
there was a lot of fruity. You know, look, we got strawberry cherry. gelato strawberry, you know, cityfit indicate OG Kush. Yeah, I have no idea if that’s

Dr. Jon 20:54
Sativa, indica. OG Kush. That’s kind of lame. I mean, I don’t know, I guess. Is that a hemp strain? That’s not a hemp strain. Somebody just put that in there. Okay, that’s, and they put it in there a couple more times. So it must have been a must have been selected. Yeah, it was probably selected.

Randall Thompson 21:10
I’m sure it is.

Dr. Jon 21:11
Yeah, well, okay. So look, let’s kind of go down.

Randall Thompson 21:13
Okay, sorry. I didn’t mean to go back.

Dr. Jon 21:15
No, no problem. Look, I got a skunky fruity, fruity, earthy not answered.A lot people didn’t even answer that. That’s interesting. Seeing is how, you know, quality and terpenes are the most important. And you know what, I bet you the people who didn’t answer this so that people are growing for fiber? That could be that’s probably because there were a lot yeah, they probably don’t care.

Randall Thompson 21:34

Dr. Jon 21:34
Yeah. Okay. So that’s cool.

Randall Thompson 21:36
And even because of the the seed, fiber or seed, right, because that’s right where they want to get so here we did like everything.

Dr. Jon 21:44
Yeah, that’s, that’s good.

Randall Thompson 21:46
Skunky, Earthy, fruity, Piney.

Dr. Jon 21:47
I think fruity wins.

Randall Thompson 21:49
There’s only one piney.

Dr. Jon 21:50
You know what, because that’s the least most that’s the least popular I think. Definitely.

Randall Thompson 21:56
Of course,

Dr. Jon 21:56
that’s definitely members. You can see skunky if you add skunky onto here,

Randall Thompson 22:01
you like Skunky.

Dr. Jon 22:02
Oh yeah, well, okay, so this is here’s the here’s the trivia question. See how excited we got to ask you. Okay, so what terpene is responsible for the skunky smell that comes from the hemp or cannabis plant, okay, do not look on the internet. That’s not allowed. But go ahead and put your answer into the drift,

Randall Thompson 22:23
tell the bot,

Dr. Jon 22:24
tell the bot

Randall Thompson 22:24
tell the bot.

Dr. Jon 22:26
We’re gonna we’re gonna do something special.

Randall Thompson 22:28
And what was the answer? What is what is the terpene that derives the skunky aroma?

Dr. Jon 22:33
Yeah, that’s that’s the okay, right, right, which terpene. And you know, what be really cool too, is if you guys, I will add, if you guys put into the bot, you know, what’s your favorite type of terpene. Or if you have a specific terpene, go ahead and put that into the bot, we’ll add it to the results. So

Randall Thompson 22:50

Dr. Jon 22:51
So anyway,

Randall Thompson 22:51

Dr. Jon 22:52
sounds good.

Randall Thompson 22:52
Love it.

Dr. Jon 22:52
But you can see here fruity people like that fruity smell. So that would be like linalool limonene, for example, you know, some of the geraniol you have nerolidol, you know, these are their notice how they’re always have ol at the end, ol, l that means they’re alcohols. Those are actually the most stable of all the terpenes.

Randall Thompson 23:17

Dr. Jon 23:18
they don’t really react a lot. So like myrcene, for example, is a is a highly reactive compound. And it’s also very volatile, because it’s a single, it’s a single monoterpene. Okay, so they’re different types of terpenes, monoterpenes, diterpenes, sesquiterpenes, blah, blah, blah, blah,

Randall Thompson 23:35
blah. You bet. terpenes. I’m looking at my notes. Yeah. Hi. myrcene MYR c, e n e, right? myrcene. Right. That’s the one that he had to correct me on earlier. I asked for his help.

Dr. Jon 23:47
Here we go.

Randall Thompson 23:48
Oh, what are the biggest issues?

Dr. Jon 23:50
What are the biggest issues you faced with hemp varieties in the past? Okay, this is kind of interesting, because, okay, so somebody has a, you know, they got the seeds, they put the time in, they got the harvest, then they got the plant, they dried the plant, they’re either going to make it for smokeable flower, or extractable, one of the two, right? And this is really what people are coming back with, as you know, things that you need to watch out for. They say bad genetics, uniformity. I don’t know, it’s cut off their shoot. I don’t know what that is, but something associated with them uniformly

Randall Thompson 24:26
probably a male growth or a male color or something, right?

Dr. Jon 24:30
I mean, this is a this is a that’s a good example. Or if it’s the plant is too small, or if they’re not uniform in their size and things like that. So maybe get a small plant, the big plant and the small plant. sure this is tested hot. Look at that. 7% tested hot. I mean, we’ve had that happen to us and you know, you have to destroy your crops. So that’s a that’s a problem, right? You got all that time and effort.

Randall Thompson 24:53
And then that could be not your fault, too. Right? It could be because you’re by somebody who’s growing marijuana because there are some states that grow Both Yeah. And if you’re near that, then some of those can float over.

Dr. Jon 25:03
No, no, that’s no, I don’t think so. But But what does happen is, here’s, here’s, here’s, here’s what happens. So you, you, you call the state Hello, I’m ready to harvest, right? And most of the places have have, you know, they’ll send out someone to sample it. Okay? right and then the sample it, and once they sample it, and then the test it and they show, okay, this is less than .3% THC, you’re ready to go, Okay, great, then you get a certificate of a, you know, of merchantability basically, and, and then you can then you’re supposed to harvest and you’re supposed to harvest a certain time after you receive the go ahead to harvest. So, in that, so the tested hot really refers to that, that that?

Randall Thompson 25:44
Yeah, if it’s over the point three,

Dr. Jon 25:46
if it’s over the point three as tested by the state as tested, okay,

Randall Thompson 25:50
on that certificate of comerce,

Dr. Jon 25:51
right. So you gotta watch it out, you know, because, you know, the longer you let your crop grow, the more likely it is that you’re going to have a hot crop, right? So you want to you want to test it, you maybe want to test it ahead of time. That’s what’s nice to have, you know, constant testing of your crop when it comes into the September October timeframe. Sure, you want to test your crop lots of times, just to just to make sure that okay, hey, it’s getting there. I’m starting to see THC. Time to get the time to get the people here sure to test it. So that’s what that is. And then we see another bad genetics, but it’s cut off, shoot off to see what that is. But here we got if you add the bad genetics here and that bad genetics, they’re in one form or another. Oh, and here’s another bad genetics. You add that that’s that’s by far the largest category.

Randall Thompson 26:42
And this probably, again, where somebody picked multiples. Yes. Why they’re in different spots.

Dr. Jon 26:47
Right. Right. Right.

Randall Thompson 26:49
Why would um, when we’re looking at mold or pests, how would that be an issue? Those are the biggest issues, but that doesn’t have anything to do with the variety?

Dr. Jon 27:00
It can Yeah, because, like mold, mold actually can, you know, be a part of the variety it starts to it’s in the, the DNA. Yeah.

Randall Thompson 27:13

Dr. Jon 27:13
It starts to express. So that’s kind of a distorts there. It’s a disease. Right. And that’s a heritable disease and inheritable disease. Pests? Obviously not, though. Yeah. Yeah, they had a problem with this, obviously.

Randall Thompson 27:24
Can’t get rid of me.

Dr. Jon 27:26
Yeah. So then seed vendors to stay without breeding. Okay, so that must mean, they’re getting males or something in there and then not answer. A lot of people didn’t didn’t even answer. Maybe they didn’t have any problems with their crops, which is pretty good. Right? Good for you. 3%. That’s pretty sweet. So nice. So that’s, uh, that’s the bottom line. Now I got some, I got some FAQ’s that we can come up with here. But first, before we do that, I thought I kind of just kind of go over it.

Randall Thompson 27:52
Let’s go.

Dr. Jon 27:52
I mean, yeah, so this is, these are seeds, I think I’ve been I’ve been showing you what you can see what they look like. They’re very, very small. And of course, the quality of seed really has, is really important. You know, the quality of seed is super important. So they’re, they’re really small, though. They are small. So when you some people buy you know, some people produce for seed, and then they they hold take the halls off of those and they crush them and they sell the seat itself. Actually. hempseed is really tasty.

Randall Thompson 28:25
Yeah. Have you? I have Yeah, that’s really good. It is really good. And it’s good for you too. Yeah. Good. Hi. Very good. fiber. So when when you plant the seed?

Dr. Jon 28:36

Randall Thompson 28:37
How many of you plant at one time when you’re planting ones?

Dr. Jon 28:40
one seed, one seed. And usually you have like a little rock wall? Yeah. Little Rock wall disk. There’s a little hole in the disk. You put that in there. And then and it kind of like come on just one. These are autopilot seeds. Oh, this is autopilot seeds here. What do we got? We got cherry wine seeds. They all look the same. Obviously, it’d be really cool. If you could see them differently. Yeah, they’re all nice. Yeah. This is some ground material, cherry wine. And you can I mean, this stuff is extremely aromatic. So much so and you can also see their house that stuck together. There’s so much oil in there that it’s actually stuck together. So there’s there’s a, this is probably what 10 or 15% easy. And even when you when you touch it, you can see it, you could form it. I think there’s so much oil. Yeah, that’s pretty good. That is good. And then this is like a decarbed oil, our decarb mass here. So the decarb you can see it’s a little darker, it’s breaking down the chlorophyll that’s in there. You would do this, and then you would get the terpenes out. So there’s all kinds of wonderful terpenes in this and when you convert it from here to here, in kind of a terpene recovery system. These are the terpenes that you get.

Randall Thompson 29:51
Look at how liquidy those are.

Dr. Jon 29:53
Yeah, they’re there. They’re definitely liquidy they these are Oregon and those are lifted terps basically They they smell wonderful. The terpenes

Randall Thompson 30:03
smell great. Yeah, they are very chlorophyll Li. And so what happens is because this the decarb not only activates the THC and the CBD, but it also removes a lot of most of the terpenes are removed at decarb.

Dr. Jon 30:16
Yeah, right, exactly.

Randall Thompson 30:17
So we capture those,

Dr. Jon 30:18
a lot of the volatile ones are move there.

Randall Thompson 30:20
So, and we call those Angel tears.

Dr. Jon 30:25
Look at them, they’re, they’ve been crying a lot spectacular. Okay, so you would use this type of, of, you know, terpenes in a formulation downstream. So you would add those back in formulation. And they’re strain specific, so that you get the the profile of the plant and they would all be in there. So this is just like Distilled or lifted. materials. What do we have here? I think that’s some Delta eight. That’s, that was from our last show.

Randall Thompson 30:52
Just hanging out. Just a bizarre,

Dr. Jon 30:57
I can’t smell anything I know.

Randall Thompson 30:58
Yeah, it’s but it’s thick.

Dr. Jon 31:00
Yeah, it’s thick. Yeah. So Well,

Randall Thompson 31:02
I mean, all of the other stuff is so aromatic.

Dr. Jon 31:05
Yeah. And then we have a big, big bunch of buds there. So this is some bucket material, right? And, you know, oh, let me see I got this. This is kind of a, so this isn’t like an auto flower plant. Because it’s so small. You can see there’s a bunch of buds on it. Small, it’s dry. This is this is the this is the stick portion here. That’s the sticks and stems. And then this is the root right here. I asked him to bring this in, show me this, but typically all of the CBD and all the THC and all the cannabinoids and all the terpenes are in these flower buds here. And I know that a lot of you guys know this already. I just thought I’d go over it. And sure, These right here are the, the sticks and stems. There’s, there’s really no recoverable. You know, it’s in in those sticks and stuff there. But that’s where

Randall Thompson 31:58
the fiber

Dr. Jon 31:59
Yeah, that’s where all the fibers. And then also you can see these right here. These are the families. Okay, and the family. They don’t have anything in it either. So here, here’s an example of a family here that doesn’t have any, any recoverable material from it, essentially,

Randall Thompson 32:15
just in the bud. But yeah,

Dr. Jon 32:17
this is a good corsage. Well, very,

Randall Thompson 32:19
yeah, very colorful. Yeah, very, very nice.

Dr. Jon 32:22
So anyway, so that’s that, in a lot of people were kind of wondering, okay, well, is there any kind of cannabinoids that are in the, you know, in the root ball? And a lot of people ask that question, just basically, because they want they want to know is it is it worth saving, I think that you can save this. So you can take all these buds off of here, you these sticks are, you know, you can sell those just just kind of bundle them up or chop them after the fact, some people take this whole entire plant, and they chop it up in a negative associated with that is you’re basically diluting you’re adding you’re diluting the amount of cannabinoids per unit weight. So if you took all these buds off, like there, and you, you know, extracted that as a percentage of the weight this as a higher percentage of weight relative to if you had chopped all this stuff, and diluted it with all these sticks, right? So this if you chopped all this up, diluted it, you know, chopped it all up, you’d have maybe, you know, maybe a 4 or 5% by weight material

Randall Thompson 33:28
in your biomass

Dr. Jon 33:29
in this stuff. It has, you know, 15% by weight material. Yeah. So if you’re paying to have your crop told or anything, obviously, you want to block it, because you’d be paying less for more material.

Randall Thompson 33:41
You don’t want to pay for the sticks and stamps that aren’t going to get you the yield to the distillate. Yeah. And the isolate.

Dr. Jon 33:47

Randall Thompson 33:48
Yeah. So you you you want that that’s, that’s the big, that’s the big deal. Right.

Dr. Jon 33:53
Those ones look pretty good. They were let me let me see those again. Are they? Yeah, so that’s a nice. Ooh, smells great. No, they do smoke. Wow, that is wonderful. It looks like someone’s trim them. Now I have to say there’s, there’s also trim, okay, that is you see these little tiny leaves here on the sides of the buds, and other kind of shriveled here, but those are called trim. Okay. And cannabis plants have them and also, also hemp plants also have them in that trim. You know, a lot of people basically have their entire business all they do is, you know, extract trim cannabis leaves. Sure, because there’s all kinds of those trichomes on there. So, um, yeah, so a lot of people ask, you know, what are trichomes

Randall Thompson 34:44
when I trichromes Well, there they are. Little Is it a trichome or trichrome?

Dr. Jon 34:51
It’s a trichrome C h o m, e trichome. No R

Randall Thompson 34:56
no R

Dr. Jon 34:57

Randall Thompson 34:57
I don’t warsh my hands. I wash my hands.

Dr. Jon 35:00

Randall Thompson 35:00
It’s a trichome.

Dr. Jon 35:02

Randall Thompson 35:02
Okay. Just making sure.

Dr. Jon 35:04
Yeah. And so

Randall Thompson 35:06
I’ve heard it both ways. I must be from the northeast somewhere. Don’t they say warsh? Do you guys say warsh up there? Sometimes I’ve heard you say warsh.

Dr. Jon 35:14
No, I think I think that I was I had just been corrected on to the exact pronunciation of that.

Randall Thompson 35:20

Dr. Jon 35:20
Yeah. And so I was like, Okay, well, because I didn’t ever so I’m not a complete moron. Now. I

Randall Thompson 35:25
just half a moron This is fabulous, by the way.

Dr. Jon 35:31
Okay. And it smells so good.

Randall Thompson 35:32
It really really does.

Dr. Jon 35:33
So this is some CBG stuff that we just

Randall Thompson 35:36
That’s CBG?

Dr. Jon 35:37
Yeah, yeah. Smell good.

Randall Thompson 35:40
It does smell good. Look at that. Yeah,

Dr. Jon 35:42
put it in here.

Randall Thompson 35:44
Put it in his pipe

Dr. Jon 35:46
got put it in your pipe and smoke it every patches on your elbows. I need to get some patch. Let’s see if we can

Randall Thompson 35:54
look at that. Let me see if I can. That’s the decarboxylation process going on right there.

Dr. Jon 35:59
By the way, you guys know how to pack a pipe pipe. You pack it first. First, like a man second like woman and third like a child. Oh, okay. It’s already gone out

Randall Thompson 36:10
because I didn’t pack it right. You didn’t pack it right?

Dr. Jon 36:13
Is anybody actually smells pretty good in here. Now. That’d be kind of a little

Randall Thompson 36:18
Well, every day when we come to work, it smells good in here. Because we can tell the days that they’re they’re grinding. We can tell the days that they’re decarbing we can tell the days is very good. Is it? Yeah, I can smell it. Very smooth. Yeah,

Dr. Jon 36:32
I can’t keep it going though. I gotta pack it right. But anyway, so that’s it. Yeah, it tastes good. Very nice. tastes great. Less filling. Okay. Okay, so here I got some FA Q’s. Okay, just kind of go over.

Randall Thompson 36:44
So this is thank you for doing that. This was a great show until very helpful, very romantic. One of the things that I did want to point out, you know, in, you’ve got all of these flowers all the way right in the bud.

Dr. Jon 36:56
Yeah, so those Right, yeah. So this is a very immature plant as it obviously as it grows, the seeds get bigger and bigger. Yeah. But it’s so it’s gotten maybe another month or month of growth. And it should should work out pretty good. So I like it. But yeah, you can see the little flowers in there. Look at all the little white here. Beautiful. Got a little bit of time.

Randall Thompson 37:16
Yep. All right. So how come some seeds are male? Oh,

Dr. Jon 37:21
that’s a good question.

Randall Thompson 37:22
Okay. Okay, next question.

Dr. Jon 37:31
Apparently, you know, when when? Okay, so when a botanist has a breeding program for, you know, they’ll, they’ll select their strains and everything. And sometimes, uh, sometimes, uh, you know, male, you know, it’ll basically be the pollen basically is either male or female. And, and so that that’s where the male female straight as, you know, strains come from or So yeah, I think that I am not a biologist, and any biologist who’s listening to me, you’re like, oh, man, he just flubbed it. But it really has to come with like, if you have like pollens in the air. And that’s why a lot of people who grow, you know, like hemp, and they’re trying to Drow females only. And then if you have an industrial hemp farm, that’s down the way and there’s all kinds of male and female pollen in the air, it’s gonna ruin their crop. So, you know, one thing that you gotta people always have to worry about, you know, their crop seeding out, for example, and not only seeding out, but also when you when you plant them, you got to make sure that you take all the males out, because they’re going to produce pollen, and then your crops going to seed out. So that’s the extent of what I know. But I’m sure there’s lots of people here who are more, more, you know, kind of more of an expert on that. But I think that just suffice it to say that, you know, you want to make sure that you’re always looking for the males, you want to get the males out of there, and you want to grow high quality seed, so that it’s it’s not doesn’t have males and female mix in it.

Randall Thompson 38:22
Yes, it will. Yeah. And so when you buy the seed, they they have a certain percentage there that is

Dr. Jon 39:09
Yeah, yeah, right. Okay. They guarantee like so you’ll want to see, okay, if I’m going to buy Hawaiian haze, for example. Yeah, I’m gonna want to talk to the manufacturer of that and say, Okay, well, you grew this last last year or give me a test, a test case on the crop and and you know, how many males they pull out and go to bat? Yeah, okay. Um, so yeah, what is the difference between hemp and cannabis?

Randall Thompson 39:33
What is the difference between hemp and cannabis? Well,

Dr. Jon 39:37
it has to do with the percentage of THC. Okay, so the Farm Bill basically defined as being a variety that produced less than .3% THC. And so, you know, people grow flowers and as long as it’s produced less than .3% it’s it’s considered hemp.

Randall Thompson 39:57
So, it they’re both right Really technically cannabis?

Dr. Jon 40:02
Yeah, I think that we refer to cannabis as those strains that are bred and you know bred specifically to produce THC. So, there is a distinction. It’s a little confusing, right. But I mean, they look

Randall Thompson 40:17
nearly identical and

Dr. Jon 40:19
look nearly identical. But that’s how I’ve been kind of referring to it because

Randall Thompson 40:23
and I think the industry does too. So it’s either hemp or cannabis. Right,

Dr. Jon 40:27
right. Right. And cannabis then would be, you know, the plant that looks the plant that is bred specifically for

Randall Thompson 40:34
concentration of THC. Yeah.

Dr. Jon 40:36
Maybe 50% THC. 50%, CBD, anything with anything greater than point? 3%? Okay,

Randall Thompson 40:43
excellent. Okay, and what? Okay,

Dr. Jon 40:45
so a lot of those a lot of those cannabis strains, I mean, they can be up to, you know, 20 25% THC, so they can get very, very potent, very potent.

Randall Thompson 40:53
So do that. What are the different parts of the plant?

Dr. Jon 40:56
Oh, yeah, I kind of think I went all the way through a lot of that with a here You can see the fans, the families are there you have the flower, you have the root ball. And then you have the sticks and stems. And of course, you don’t want to, you don’t really want to take the sticks and stems and and extract them. So that’s the main thing. But you also have on the flower itself, you have the trim, you know, the little leaves that are around the flower. So you want to trim those off, and there’s trichrome on their trichomes on there, and you should probably, you know, take those and you can extract that, if you don’t The reason you would take those leaves off there is if you were trying to make a smokeable flower, and all that all that trim and everything and the trichomes

Randall Thompson 41:37
are really kind of that sticky, right?

Dr. Jon 41:39
Yeah. Okay, so they’re like little mushroom structures. Yeah, and they can be all different colors. And, but usually they’re white, and they look like little little mushroom hairs all over the plant. So it really looks looks beautiful. And you know, when you you can squeeze the flower or something, all of that resin that’s in there, you can have a noise, the terpenes all that stuff kind of sticks to your fingers.

Randall Thompson 41:59
By the way, one of the things that I talked to another farmer, a very large scale farmer last week, and they they said that when they would they rotate crops so they grow corn, soybean, onions, everything they rotate a lot of crops and, and hemp. And they said that the season for two seasons after growing hemp in one field? They get almost a 20 to 30% higher yield really on other crop in that field post hemp. Wow. Because for some ever, whatever reason. And if you’ve found that yourself, let let us know. But because that would be an interesting study you were doing for all the farmers out there because when for some reason, the root of the hemp either give that soil more nutrients, right or take all the bad stuff out. Yeah,

Dr. Jon 42:51
I’m not sure which I don’t know, or both. Yeah,

Randall Thompson 42:54
I mean, but it’s a higher yield. And you can see there they’re talking about, you know, what, 812 to 18 inches higher plant structure even like the next season.

Dr. Jon 43:04
I wonder if that’s true. I bet it is.

Randall Thompson 43:08
I don’t know if it’s anecdotal. And it was told to me last week. So I thought I’d bring that up. As we’re talking about different parts of the plant. That would be an interesting part of the plant. So that we’ve also, I think, touched on this, but this is one of the questions that came up what part has the most extractable material?

Dr. Jon 43:26
Okay, so for extraction, you’re going to want to take you know, you’re going to want to have a bucked material that has Yeah, that has all the trim on it. So that’s going to be something along this lines. Yeah, long these lines that is bucked, but yeah, but not trimmed. So, you know, I wouldn’t say that see, this has got some sticks and stems, but this can easily be ground up. That’s kind of that’s kind of just yeah, just bought. So that’s the best type. Now. I wouldn’t dilute this if this is beautiful bucked material, I wouldn’t do this with stems and sticks by you know, crushing everything up into into a different thing. So, yeah, that’s the most so that’s the flour and the trim areas where all of the extractable material is and you’re going to want to, you’re going to want to make sure that you buck your material.

Randall Thompson 44:17
Okay, now coming back to your question to everybody. Yeah. Which terpene creates that skunky smell.

Dr. Jon 44:26

Randall Thompson 44:27
It is myrcene.

Dr. Jon 44:27
Yeah, yeah, but we dropped a bunch of hints

Randall Thompson 44:30
we did. So high mere scene string gives you that skunky smell.

Dr. Jon 44:34
Yeah, and so when you talking about a fresh material, like suppose you get fresh material like this, and if this was all flower, you could, you know, do a rosin press on that. A lot of those myrcenes, they kind of will go away as it’s dried and as it sits, okay, so because they’re mild terpene and also they break down so a lot of the skunky smell is is really evident in fresh fresh material. And then as it ages, the myrcene agents breaks down and then it gets less and less skunky over time. So a lot of people really like that skunky smell. So, you know, sometimes if you have materials that are more, they haven’t been sitting around for a long time, okay, something maybe just harvested, then you can do your terpene collection and get a lot of myrcene in here.

Randall Thompson 45:29
So we had a follow up question that came up what of course right here what is what creates the fruity smell if myrcene creates a skunky smell what terpene creates the fruity smell.

Dr. Jon 45:41
Okay, that’s a whole whole bunch of them. And I think I mentioned like linalool and those are kind of linalool, limonene

Randall Thompson 45:50
limonene Lemon cello.

Dr. Jon 45:57
There’s there’s a while there’s pinene to alpha pinene mining, okay, but those are the Piney ones. People don’t like that very much, you know, really? Well, I don’t know, although it is the most prevalent of all of the Really? All the terpenes Okay,

Randall Thompson 46:11
you know, so there’s a many that you that

Dr. Jon 46:13
you can see from our survey that only one person is like finding an amazing that is just one out of one out of 53.

Randall Thompson 46:22
So that would be the least popular terpene I’m guessing. I think so. At least at least with Arby’s Yeah, with our results. So keep those cards and letters coming in. Make sure you have everybody that you know, fill out that survey. I think that would be fantastic. Yeah. All right.

Dr. Jon 46:35
Yeah. And we’ll just keep on adding it. And maybe in about maybe six months or so we’ll review the results. And maybe we’ll have a growing a growing, you know, podcast. So

Randall Thompson 46:47
based on the results, it sounds like that, like linalool or limit them on the limonium side keep want to say lemon cello. So, when which one is the most smokeable would be dependent on what you like, whether you like that skunky fruity smell Right, right.

Dr. Jon 47:09
Yeah, and I think that’s why you really need to have you know, some sort of like the all the different strains will have expressed different amounts of those. So if you want to have a strain that’s high in like a fruity taste, then you need to really investigate that strain. You probably need to find some of the material ahead of time and and maybe even you know test it out say hey, this is good for me and then buy it.

Randall Thompson 47:34
What is the difference between a when people refer to a hempstrain versus a CBD strain because the hemp is the flower but the CBD is the cannabinoid. what is what is the difference?

Dr. Jon 47:46
I don’t think there is any difference. Okay. I mean, I not that I know. Do you think there’s a difference?

Randall Thompson 47:51
I don’t, I don’t

Dr. Jon 47:52
know most people are growing hemp for CBD or CBG.

Randall Thompson 47:57
Because I wouldn’t I wouldn’t think that there is a CBD strain. I think there’s a hemp strain because that’s the plant. Right? Right. CBD there are the whole entourage of cannabinoids, cannabis oil that is in there. CBD CBG, CBC CBN, right, whatever. But all of those, those are not strains, right? Those are actual cannabinoids. Right?

Dr. Jon 48:20
Right, right.

Randall Thompson 48:21
cannabinoids. Okay, I’m just kind of going through looking, see if there’s any other questions that we need to answer right now. Keep the and by the way, the team is answering a lot of questions. So we’re, we’re, when I see them in, they’re already being answered on there. That’s good. So keep asking the questions. The survey is open and out.

Dr. Jon 48:42

Randall Thompson 48:55
I think that that I think that that’s good. One of the things okay, so of all of this that we looked at the the most interesting to me is the fresh Because it it is so I mean, it doesn’t even pour. No, it doesn’t. It’s got a lot. It’s sticky. I love that probably

Dr. Jon 49:12
10 or 15% in there, actually. And that stuff really smells very aromatic.

Randall Thompson 49:17
It really does mean it’s,

Dr. Jon 49:19
it has a tremendous silent. Yeah. Okay, so even, you know, grinding that stuff up. It’s probably very aromatic experience.

Randall Thompson 49:28
It’s good. And the other thing is the CBG that you put in your pipe. It seems smaller as a bud.

Dr. Jon 49:36
Yeah, I think that’s just because the buds that you know, this is probably some buds ever growing. And it just so typically

Randall Thompson 49:42
typically would be the same.

Dr. Jon 49:44
You’d be the same if I got bigger. Yeah, the same. This is the same. You see, it’s got a lot of

Randall Thompson 49:48
