Cannabis 101: what are high CBD strains and how do they differ from high THC strains?

Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two main ingredients in the cannabis plant. Both CBD and THC belong to a unique class of compounds known as cannabinoids.

While many strains of marijuana are known for having extremely high levels of THC, high-CBD strains are less common. But CBD has recently started to draw attention from the medical community, who seem to prefer CBD over THC.

The most sought after high-CBD strain is called Charlotte’s Web because of it having little to none THC. As a medical strain, Charlotte’s Web has been used successfully to treat PTSD, epilepsy, and much more. Another high-CBD strain is called Harlequin and it is renowned for being able to treat pain and anxiety.
