If you’re looking for the latest advances in medical cannabis, then you need to know about CBD rich strains. CBD is short for Cannabidiol. It is one of the many cannabinoids that make up the medicine’s active healing properties. In order to qualify as “CBD Rich”, the product must have more than 4% CBD. Research has identified CBD as the main ingredient responsible for inhibiting the growth of cancer cells. In addition, CBD shrinks tumors and inflammation. CBD is also good for reducing pain and helps with insomnia. It has significant analgesic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties and helps in the reduction in anxiety and stress.
All strains that are CBD Rich, have a lower THC content. THC is the ingredient that makes one feel “high” or “stoned”. CBD acts to mitigate the “high” of the THC. For this reason, most recreational strains have been bred to reduce the CBD content. As science delves deeper into the therapeutic properties of cannabis, CBD is proving to be the most significant player in the art of healing. Many of our members have requested CBD rich products. In response, we have searched far and wide for the best strains.

This strain was recently developed from a cross of Canna Tonic and Ruderalis parents. It is the ultimate super rich CBD medicine. It is a 50/50 sativa/indica hybrid. Its lab tests have a content of 19% CBD and .9% THC. This is extremely rare to have such high CBD combined with extremely low THC, making this strain virtually “THC Free”.
ACDC has a fresh pine scent and the flowers have lots of sticky resin glands (trichomes). It is especially beneficial for cancer, shrinking tumors, inflammation, pain, and associated aliments. Because it has a very low THC value, it is good for people that have issues with anxiety, nerve tremors and paranoia. We have had great success with epilepsy, especially in children, showing immediate results. ACDC is very close to a strain called “Charlotte’s Web” used for epilepsy. The high CBD, low THC also gives it anti-psychotic properties. It is very good for people who need to work, drive and function in the world, while providing great medicinal effects.
Black Beauty is noted for it’s rare THCV content, which has only recently begun to be studied. In addition to having both anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, research on THCV indicates the strong likelihood it is an appetite suppressant, regulates blood sugar, stimulates bone growth, reduces panic attacks and curbs anxiety in PTSD patients without suppressing emotion. Tremors, motor control, and brain lesions associated with Alzheimer’s disease appear to be improved by THCV.
Profile: (10.4% THC: 4% THCV) Hybrid 3:1 THC:THCV
CBD Therapy A
This strain was developed by an international team, CBD Crew and took 4 years to stabilize. Its potency is between 20:1 – 25:1. CBD Therapy is good for treating people who do not wish high THC and is great for people suffering with Dravet’s syndrome, MS, Crohn’s, fibromyalgia, inflammation issues, anxiety / depression or Epilepsy. Its a 50/50 hybrid indica/sativa hybrid mix, but because CBD Therapy is high in myrcene, it acts more like an indica and is good for insomnia, relaxation and stress reduction. In terms of flavor and aroma, CBD Therapy is able to produce a variety, ranging from fruity sweet, to dank and earthy. Its potency is about 17% CBD; .6% THC
Another strain developed by Lawrence Ringo of Southern Humboldt Seed Company, Canna Sue is a cross between Canna Tonic and Sour Tsunami. Synergy Wellness obtained clones of this strain from the breeder. These mature buds were lab tested and results were extremely high in CBD. Lab results were 13.8% CBD and 3.4% THC. Canna Sue is good for nausea, pain relief, appetite stimulation, anti-cancer, anti-convulsant and anti-anxiety. It is a muscle relaxant, reduces stress and is a good night time sleep medicine.
Cannatonic is a CBD Rich strain, It is a 50/50 sativa/indica hybrid. Developed in Spain, its name comes from “Cannabis Tonic.” The latest lab results show this strain has 8.11% CBD and 6.9% THC. Even the plants themselves look slightly different than most sativas and indicas. The leaves and flowers are very delicate. Hence, the yield of flowers and buds is much lower, about one third of most other strains.
Canna Tonic has a lemony pine scent and the flowers have lots of resin. It is especially beneficial for anxiety, sleep, pain and nausea.
Cashey’s Honey is a sativa dominant hybrid strain created through a cross of the potent DulcaCanna X AK-47 strains. This bud gets its name from the famous cannabis patient Cash Michael Hyde, who advocated for the use of high CBD cannabis in medical treatments. With potency as high as 18%CBD, it always has a 2:1 ratio CBD:THC. It also has a large number of the minor cannabinoids including CBN and CBC, together with a large number of terpenes, giving it a wide variety of medicinal properties plus an unusual aroma.

Electra 4 is a cross of AC/DC and Otto, one of the first CBD strains identified in 2008. Electra 4, like AC/DC, is a clone only CBD phenotype that grows between 10:1-25:1 CBD:THC ratio. It was created in Northern California in 2011 by breeder Tim Underwood. High in Beta Caryophyllene, it supports and helps regulate our body’s natural response to inflammation, arthritis, bladder cystitis, multiple sclerosis and HIV-associated dementia, all without the THC high. It also provides soothing support to the digestive tract when ingested.
Electra has a tall, gangly tree-like structure with long heavy branches covered with large flower buds and small Sativa influenced leaves.

It is a favorite of many returning patients because of its medicinal effectiveness. Catatonic’s popular and complex compounds, unveiled in an indica dominance that is tempered by Sour Tsunami’s sativa dominant soothing qualities, results in uplifting clarity. Overall, it offers some of the best CBD-hybrid options.
Synergy Tsu has many medicinal applications which include treatment of conditions needing higher CBD ratios, such as pain, stress, Chron’s disease, ALS, inflammation, anxiety and cancer. It can be effectively used in an extract form for skin conditions, beauty products and anti-aging cremes. Its high beta-Mycerene content helps with sleep problems and has a relaxing effect.

Other properties remain to be investigated.
This is our latest and greatest strain. Valentine X, or Valentine as we call it, has the highest ratio of CBD:THC that we have found. 25:1 CBD:THC.
