CBD-rich cannabis varieties Posted on 23 Mar 10:14

Traditionally, the THC content is the sole indicator of strength and quality of a variety, but that's changing, while the benefits of the other cannabinoids, and in particular the CBD are scientifically recognized. THC is the cannabinoid that is largely responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis and is at recreational users because of its intoxicating properties still the most sought-after connection. For this reason, most breeders have focused on increasing the THC content, but neglected other cannabinoids such as CBD.

With more and more scientific evidence supporting the medicinal effects of cannabis, we see not only a revival of the legal and socially acceptable use of medical cannabis, but also a shift of focus to other cannabinoids. THC has proved that it has its own medicinal qualities, but it is the CBD, which has moved because of its wide range of medical qualities into the spotlight. Especially the lack of a psychoactive effect makes CBD attractive for a variety of applications because it was administered successfully children without it caused a frenzy. As a result, produce cannabis breeders now many new varieties that have high CBD values.


While the mass media CBD pick up on stories of how the little girl Charlotte, who beat her epilepsy with a CBD-rich variety, the consciousness spread all over the potent medicinal qualities of this cannabinoid. The legalization of cannabis for medical and recreational use in a number of U.S. states has the availability of CBD-rich varieties increased even further. However, not all medical users lucky enough to be able to buy cannabis in pharmacies legal and illegal cannabis from the road is not suitable for medical use. Therefore, many take it into their own hands and build their own supply, from which they produce their own drugs such as tinctures and concentrates.
