What is CBD, you might ask? CBD stands for cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabis constituent with a variety of studied benefits such as:
  • Pain relief
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-epileptic
  • Strengthens bones
  • Anti-nausea
  • Counteracting THC-induced anxiety
A strain can be high in THC, CBD, or a combination of the two. Both compounds have unique medicinal properties, some of which are amplified when both compounds are present (e.g. pain or nausea relief).

But keep in mind, while the strains below have a tendency to contain higher levels of CBD, not every harvest will demonstrate a CBD-rich chemical profile.

Take Critical Mass and Warlock as examples. These strains can express a high THC profile with only minimal levels of CBD, but you also see instances in which the cannabinoid content is reversed. 

It all comes down to how a strain was bred and which characteristics the plant ends up expressing.
