Considering that there are so many cannabis strains available today, picking the right one can feel overwhelming. Not everyone is interested in the psychoactive effects of cannabis – Some just want the health benefits. In other words, such users are usually interested in CBD and not THC. THC is the only compound in cannabis that is psychoactive or can cause a high. If you want to feel at ease but don’t want to lose your mind, you should consider a strain with better CBD:THC ratio. Here are some of the best low-THC cannabis strains.
Harle-Tsu is among the best strains for those who are seeking relief from pain and inflammation. Depending on the season and grower, the strain contains around 25% CBD with less than 1% THC. The parent strains – Harlequin and Sour Tsunami – are just as popular and can be considered by beginners too.
If you are just looking for a high-CBD strain, look no further. The ratio of CBD to THC of this strain is around 30:1. The CBD content of Charlotte’s Web is around 13%, while THC content is around 1%. The immediate effect of this strain is calming, so it can be considered by those dealing with anxiety, pain, and seizures.
For those who want the CBD benefits but also some level of high, ACDC is the choice for them. The CBD content is around 14-20%, while the THC content is around 1-6%. In other words, you cannot get intoxicated with ACDC, but this is still a good strain with citrusy and earthy tones.
Named by CBD expert Lawrence Ringo, Ringo’s Gift is a cross between two known strains – Harle-Tsu and ACDC. This is entirely a CBD-dominant strain, with almost no effects of THC. The CBD to THC ratio is around 24:1.
The name may make it sound like Cannatonic is high on THC, but it isn’t. This is a 50% Sativa and 50% Indica strain, with THC content of around 7% or higher, while CBD content is around 12%. This is like somewhere in middle of all other strains that either rank high on CBD or THC. You may find yourself feeling more relaxed and at ease with this strain.
If we had to include another strain that has the best of both CBD and THC, it would be Sweet and Sour Widow. Make sure to check all details or talk to budtenders before buying a strain from any dispensary.
