Cannabinoids like CBD can help modulate serotonin transmission, giving it anti-depressant and anxiolytic effects.

Organ Systems

  • Brain & Nervous System
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD/ADD)

Utilizing CBD and other phytocannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis may help replace the lost endocannabinoids, helping treat pain and mood disorders associated with NF1 gene mutations. Using THC may help boost dopamine levels in the brain.

Medical cannabis may also help reduce the intake of stimulant medications. Terpenes like beta-caryophyllene and limonene may be beneficial for reducing the intake of stimulants and addiction in general.

  • Mental / Emotional
Seizures and Seizure Disorders

There is now a considerable body of evidence showing that cannabidiol (CBD) can help reduce the frequency of seizures in people suffering from Dravet syndrome or Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, which are particularly severe and treatment-resistant forms of childhood epilepsy.

Dosing

Growing

growing strains

Avi-Dekel seeds are not available for public purchase, so the best option is to clone the strain from another plant. It’s best growing in warm or Mediterranean climates, or inside in a greenhouse.

Height

It’s unlikely for Avi-Dekel to grow higher than 6 feet when grown either indoors or outdoors. The plant tends to grow more laterally than vertically and will need support to prvent the stems and branches from breaking under the weight. The leaves will need to be trimmed so that more light can reach more of the plant. If the plant is in the appropriate climate, it should produce up to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.

Humidity and Temperature

A greenhouse or hydroponics system set at 50% humidity is ideal for Avi-Dekel. The strain prefers a warm climate of around 26°C and will likely prefer the same growing atmospheres as other indica plants.

Flowering

Information on how to cultivate this miraculous strain is hard to find, but the general consensus is that its indoor flowering time starts at around eight weeks.
