HIGH CBD SEEDS
High CBD strains have experienced a surge in popularity in recent years. CBD is becoming widely recognized for its ability to provide relief from everything from pain to depression and anxiety.
WHAT IS CANNABIDIOL?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD is often used to produce medicated oils, distillates and tinctures. Many of the more popular CBD strains have a very low amount of THC, and lots of CBD. However, breeders have recently crossed some of the popular high CBD strains with equally high THC strains, resulting in a 1:1 ratio of THC & CBD.
High CBD Strains
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is one of the many cannabinoids identified and is similar to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is responsible for the high associated with consuming cannabis. Unlike THC, CBD interacts differently with the body's cannabinoid receptors. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it won't produce a noticeable high. That is why CBD can be sold legally in places where cannabis containing THC is still illegal.
Cannabidiol is often used to produce medicated oils, distillates, and tinctures. Many of the more popular CBD strains have low amounts of THC and high levels of CBD. However, breeders have recently crossed some of the popular high CBD strains with equally high THC strains, resulting in a 1:1 ratio of THC & CBD.
What are High CBD Seeds?
Cannabis seeds themselves don't contain any CBD. The CBD resides in other plant materials like leaves and flowers. High CBD seeds infer that the seeds come from parents that presented above-average levels of CBD. The breeding is carefully done by selecting only chemotypes with elevated amounts of CBD. The offspring are tested to verify that the desired traits got passed down to the next generation.
CBD strains are complex. Some say they’re the most beneficial strains for sleep and relaxation. While others contest that CBD strains provide energetic and uplifting effects. This is because a CBD strain can be a Sativa, Indica, or Hybrid. The total cannabinoids and terpenes are actually responsible for much of the effects felt, not just one individual molecule like CBD.
The Effects of High CBD Seeds
CBD is nonintoxicating. However, some users report feeling a calmness or release of tension when they consume CBD. CBD use has been associated with the decrease in symptoms of insomnia, arthritis, PTSD, certain kinds of seizures, anxiety, inflammation, stress, and a host of other illnesses and ailments. When it comes to relieving serious pain and insomnia CBD in a 1:1 combination with THC seems to offer the best of both worlds.
Why Use High CBD Seeds?
Some of the most common reasons individuals use CBD are for a wide range of physical and mental health symptoms and also for improved general well-being. CBD is also in some cases, seen as a safer alternative to opioids. One reason for this is that CBD is non-psychoactive or addictive. Since CBD does not get you high, there’s no reason to feel uneasy about consuming it when you have to go about your day.
It's important to consider that not all cannabis users want a strain with high THC levels. Many of them are only using cannabis because of the perceived benefits of CBD. CBD plants can be legally grown and consumed in places where THC is currently outlawed. So growing CBD seeds means that you can cultivate and use these strains no matter your local government's stance on the issue of cannabis. Even general gardening hobbyists can grow CBD seeds without fear of violating local laws.
Or maybe you are a breeder looking to add some higher CBD levels to your current strains. To do this, you need some high CBD strains as a genetic base for this type of breeding.
How to Grow High CBD Seeds
Whether growing a high-THC or a high-CBD strain, there’s no way to coax your plants into producing more cannabinoids than they are genetically capable of. The key to growing high-CBD marijuana seeds at home is identifying a strain likely to produce cannabidiol in greater (or equal) amounts as THC. That is exactly what a high CBD strain is. Once you have recognized a plant with the desired genetics, make sure you use clones instead of seeds to avoid any guesswork and cannabinoid variation in the future. To find these CBD-rich strains, focus on cultivars with a known high-CBD content.
The same basic rules apply to growing CBD strains and THC strains. They can be germinated and propagated identically. When harvest time approaches, pick and dry the buds carefully. Both CBD and THC gradually degrade. Do your best to limit the amount of cannabinoid breakdown that occurs post-harvest. Save the leaves. CBD is in the leaves and the buds of the cannabis plant, and it can be used for extractions or making edibles.
Buying High CBD Seeds
Whether you like Indicas or Sativas, both types of plants come in High CBD varieties. The same goes for how much THC you're looking for. Some strains have little to no THC while others high both high THC and CBD. All our strains have been carefully bred using top-quality genetics and undergo testing to ensure healthy plants with high germination success rates.
