Flavonoids are one of the lesser-known compounds in cannabis, and little is known about the flavonoids present in each strain because they are rarely tested. Like terpenes, flavonoids add to each strain’s flavor and fragrance profile.
Studies have shown that the major flavonoids present in all cannabis plants are cannflavins A, B, and C.

The usual effects of Bianca are pretty standard for indica-dominant strains, with most users feeling tired and deeply sedated to the point of being unwilling to move for a couple of hours.
THC can stimulate the release of the sleep neurotransmitter, adenosine.
Cannabis contains many anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) compounds that can beat stress and reduce the production of the stress hormone cortisol.
Cannabinoids like CBD can help modulate serotonin transmission, giving it anti-depressant and anxiolytic effects.
THC can stimulate the production of the hunger hormone ghrelin.
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.
Cannabinoids can promote neurogenesis, and some believe they can potentially be used to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s.
Deciding on how much of a particular cannabis product to take to achieve specific effects is tricky, and there are no standardized medical recommendations. As a good rule of thumb, start slowly while figuring out your tolerance, which will help minimize your chances of experiencing negative side effects.
Before you begin, there are a few cannabis growing essentials to learn if you’re new to growing cannabis. Bianca plants can be grown inside or outside depending on the climate conditions where you live, and they are a bit more tolerant to changes in climate than other cannabis plants.
Bianca plants usually reach between 30 and 60 inches (76-152 cm) tall, depending on whether they are grown indoors or outdoors and the size of the space they are planted in.
Humidity and Temperature
Seedlings need to be kept at humidities of about 60%, while plants in the vegetative stage can manage anywhere between 50% and 70%. They must be a little drier at 50% humidity when they start flowering to prevent mold or rot.
Once planted, your Bianca plant should start to flower in approximately 55 days, and you may be able to harvest it within 64 days. You can always use the color of the pistils and trichomes as a guide if you’re unsure whether your crop is ready to be harvested. If you want to get healthy yields, this handy guide has a couple of tips.
