THC content has been the sole indicator of a strain’s potency and quality, but this is changing as the merits of the other cannabinoids, and particularly CBD, are being scientifically recognised. THC has shown to hold its own qualities, but it is CBD that has moved into the spotlight for its wide range of qualities. Particularly the absence of any psychoactive effects makes CBD attractive for a wide range of applications like treatment of anxiety, insomnia, pain, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy and glaucoma are just a few of the conditions CBD seems to be able to assist.
Cannatonic is an award winning CBD-rich strain that is made up of 50 percent sativa genetics and 50 percent indica genetics. The strain was created via the crossbreeding of parent strains Reina Madre and NYCD. The strain is capable of producing strains with a THC:CBD ratio of 1:1 which is ideal for medical users looking for a high CBD strain that will still offer the medicinal benefits of THC.
2. OG Kush CBD
OG Kush CBD is a sativa dominant hybrid strain that is made up of 60 percent sativa genetics and 40 percent indica genetics. The strain is the result of breeding parent strains OG Kush and pure CBD. The strain offers medical users a THC:CBD ratio of 1:1, with flowers containing quantities of 10 percent of each cannabinoid. The heavy amounts of CBD present within OG Kush CBD are reported to assist with conditions such as tension, pain, anxiety and sleeping disorders.
3. Fast Eddy
To produce this strain, breeders hybridized Cheese, Juanita La Lagrimosa, and ruderalis plants into a single autoflowering hybrid. Fast Eddy develops around 9% of THC, which is a small amount, but significant enough to induce psychoactive effects. It also develops high CBD-levels, which complements the experience with superb entourage effects.
CBD-Chronic is an indica and sativa hybrid cannabis strain that is the result of the crossbreeding of parent strains Chronic and Remedy. The THC:CBD ratio of plants is nearly a perfect 1:1. THC levels within the flowers are reported to be around 5.1 percent, whereas CBD levels are a tiny bit higher at 5.8 percent. This balance allows for a calm and gentle high augmented by the medicinal power of CBD.
5. Critical Mass
It is an indica dominant hybrid strain that is made up of 80 percent indica genetics and 20 percent sativa genetics. Plants produce a THC:CBD ratio of 1:1 which is ideal for medical patients as well as recreational smokers. The flowers produced by Critical Mass contain 5 percent THC and 5 percent CBD.
