A lot has been made of the developing world of cannabis and, in particular, the CBD strains that come from it or the original source. With a number of people suffering from a lack of THC, some say these are the best strains going around. The question is, though, what makes a good CBD strain?
To answer, we’re going to take a look at how to identify good quality CBD strains since there seems to be quite an array of them out there. The article goes on to explore the reasons for a good CBD strain and just why it can be such an excellent addition to your medicine cabinet.
There are a number of things you should consider when choosing your CBD strains. In particular, you should be aware of the following: A CBD strain that is too strong will cause insomnia and increase anxiety due to the heightened awareness of every little pain sensation or ache you have (aka “The munchies”). A high THC strain may lead one to develop paranoia or not feel as relaxed after using it at all. A CBD-heavy strain may cause dry mouth or a dulling of the senses.
The most notable thing to consider when choosing a CBD strain is exactly what it is you are looking for; there are a lot of variables in your medicine cabinet, so it can be a challenge to choose the best one (or even know what they are). There are quite a few different types of CBD strains available, and many of them have very different properties and effects. It can be alluring to buy the first strain you find and then have a go at growing it yourself, but this may not be such a good idea, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing.
A strain high in cannabinoid acids like CBG and CBC should be soothing and relaxing. Those high in terpenes should provide a variety of pleasant flavors and smells, particularly when vaporized. Good CBD strains will have relatively low levels of THCA, which are designed to turn into THC over time which is why this cannabinoid is generally considered non-psychoactive. The presence of large amounts of CBN may indicate poor quality, just as large amounts of THCA can indicate an inferior product. Although there is still a lot to think about and discover about cannabis and CBD strains, one thing is for sure; it’s a beneficial medicinal plant, and with the help of proper research, we can get rid of the stigma attached to it once and for all.
