A marijuana strain that has CBD level of 4% or more is considered to being in the upper echelon of strains with higher CBD amounts. Although 1% is already a better level than nothing, strains that have a CBD level of over to 8% are a little more difficult to get but they are considered the best. In a lot of cases, strains of the marijuana that are commercially available have 8% to 12% CBD levels. These are preferred for the production of CBD products because they dampen and modulate some effects that THC has on the users. Studies have also shown that CBD is actually the ingredient of cannabis that has the highest medicinal value.
Here are the top 5 strains of marijuana with the highest CBD amounts:
- Royal Medic
This is another great Marijuana strain. It has THC at around 10% only and CBD at an insanely high level of 12%. That means it is one of the marijuana strains with the highest amounts of CBD. This strain was produced by crossing Juanita la Lagrimosa and Critical. Both of these were originally grown in Spain. Royal medic has a sturdy and small stature and it flowers at around 8 to 9 weeks.
Harlequin is a product of various landrace strains including the Thai and Swiss landraces, Colombian Gold, and Nepali indica. It has a ratio of CBD: THC of 5:2. In most cases, it has between 6% and 15% CBD level. The THC level in this strain ranges from 4% and 10%.
This marijuana strain is also called euforia. It is a Dutch creation and it appeared in the market for the first time in 1996. However, this strain is widely available today. It contains 20% sativa and 80% indica. It is popular for producing pain relief and respite from anxiety. Some people grow it indoors too because it reaches a maximum height of 100cm. Its CBD level is 7%. Therefore, people that want to use CBD for the first time should use products from this plant in small amounts.
- Shark Shock
This marijuana strain belongs to a genetics line that was devised for the first time by Shantibaba of the Mr. Nice Seeds. It has been given numerous names over the years including Peacemaker and Great White Shark. The current Shark Shock is among the marijuana strains whose CBD content outweighs THC content. On average, the CBD content in Shark Shock is 7.28%. This makes it a perfect strain for medical users. It grows in a small stature and it flowers very fast at around 8 weeks.
- CBD Skunkhaze
This marijuana strain has a CBD level of 7.5% and THC level of 7.5%. It came from a project between CBD Crew and Dutch passion. The goal of this project was to achieve a ratio of THC: CBD of 1:1. This stain is ideal for medical patients that want high quality and genuine effect of cannabis without the high intensity that THC varieties produce. To create this strain, Skunk or Haze was crossed with a variety of marijuana with a high CBD level. SkunkHaze produces a minty, citrusy, fresh, and spicy vapor. It flowers at around 10 weeks and it is tall but not overwhelmingly so.
It’s important to note the choice of the marijuana strain should depend on the amount of CBD that you want to achieve. Today, these are among the most popular strains of marijuana due to their high amounts of CBD.
