Feeling stressed? CBD strains might be able to calm you down and help you get through your day. The problem occurs with finding strains that won’t make you high – like THC does.
Believe it or not, there are some strains that are very high in CBD and low in THC, or so high in CBD that they sort of cancel out the effects of the THC. If you use the ones on this list, you’ll still fail a drug test, but when you have anxiety, anything to stop the racing thoughts is a life saver.
Here are a few high CBD strains that can give you all the benefits of smoking weed with none of the negative effects that will leave your head in the clouds.
ACDC CBD Strain
ACDC is a hybrid strain with a ridiculously high amount of CBD. You can get some that contain as little as .42 percent THC. A number of things will happen when you start using it.
You’ll feel uplifted and euphoric, with the motivation to tackle your day head-on. It’s like a really good cup of coffee or several good cups of coffee. Due to its uplifting nature, ACDC is a great strain to use at the beginning of your work day because it will make you more productive.
Besides boosting your productivity, it has physical benefits too. A lot of people take it for anxiety, migraines, nausea, bipolar disorder, and arthritis. It’s also good for treating chronic pain because it acts as an inflammatory.back to menu ↑
Charlotte’s Web CBD Strain
Due to its namesake, Charlotte’s Web is a world famous strain. No, it’s not named after the book. It helped ease the seizures of a little girl by the name of Charlotte Figi.
You can probably guess that since it was used to help a little girl, the THC percentage is exceedingly low. It’s actually more than 20 percent CBD. It’s usually taken in oil form, and its effects are so subtle that you probably won’t even realize it’s in your system.
It’s often used to treat muscle spasms associated with seizures, but it’s also good for migraines, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and arthritis.back to menu ↑
CBD Mango Haze Strain
CBD Mango Haze is great if you love the tropical taste of mango. It also boasts a subtle peppery flavor that just simply brings balance to the sweet, fruity taste and makes it a really great smoke.
It has a high CBD to THC ratio of about 2:1 or 1:1, which is not bad in terms of making sure you get the effects without the high. It can pick you up and get you motivated to do those pesky household chores that you’ve been putting off.
If your appetite is low, this strain can bring it back and also help with any mild pain. It’s not as good as treating pain as ACDC but it can work in a pinch.back to menu ↑
Ringo’s Gift CBD Strain
Ringo’s gift is a mixture of the popular strains ACDC and Harle-Tsu. It boasts a high CBD percentage of 20 or more and, in most cases, less than one percent THC. It can give you a little bit of a buzz, but not big enough of one where you’ll be left drooling on the couch.
This strain helps clear your head and relieves any stress that you’re feeling. It has an earthy taste, but it’s not strong enough to be unpleasant.
It has a lot of the benefits that you’d get from ACDC, such as defense against chronic pain, arthritis, and anxiety with added benefits of helping with gastrointestinal disorders and PTSD.back to menu ↑
Harlequin CBD Strain
Harlequin does have a high concentration of THC, but it has so much CBD in it that it sort of cancels out the THC. It has the effect of a cup of coffee or energy drink, keeping you alert throughout the day. It’s ideal for those who want to stay productive or have a lot of work to do.
You can smoke it during the day despite the high THC concentration, but your co-workers might ask about your dry, red eyes.
Harlequin is good to fight chronic pain, inflammation, migraines, depression, stress, and PTSD. If you take pharmaceutical drugs for any of these conditions, you can use Harlequin to reduce your need for medications.back to menu ↑
Harle-Tsu CBD Strain
Harle-Tsu is a rare bud with about 22 percent CBD and less than one percent THC. This strain is good at making you feel mellow, but where it really shines is in its painkilling abilities. It can be your first line of defense against chronic pain and arthritis.
It’s good to smoke during the day because it will get you motivated and keep you energized, but not as energized as some of the others on this list. It’s good against PTSD, PMS, migraines, depression, insomnia, and inflammation.back to menu ↑
