The resin produced in the trichomes of the cannabis bud contains many types of cannabinoids that consist mostly of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). Consuming a combination of the two, in any ratio, can help users feel a sense of calm and happiness with a balanced mental state.  THC helps fight pain directly and also alleviates depression, while CBD soothes the nervous system and fights inflammation, which is the root cause of most diseases today.  Some medical patients prefer to consume low doses of THC and high doses of CBD, which has inspired many growers to create specialty strains for people looking for the mild therapeutic effects of the cannabis plant.  Even with all the choices today, here are 5 high CBD strains you should try!




OG Kush CBD by Dinafem Seeds is a Sativa-dominant version of the famous OG Kush strain, known for its sedative properties.  Testing between 10-15 % CBD, with an equal amount THC content, this 1:1 cannabis strain is perfect for anyone looking for a balanced high. Most cannabis enthusiasts know OG KUSH as an Indica dominant hybrid strain, which promotes relaxation and feelings of euphoria.  Dinafem Seeds were able to create this new strain from a pure CBD parent so the effects from OG Kush CBD will be mentally stimulating. Heavy users should still experience a functional, cerebral high. The aroma of this bud is a combination of petrol and lemon, hinting that this strain contains terpenes that have been said to fight cancer.


CBD helps your mind deal with stress, anxiety, and depression by protecting your brain cells from “neurotoxicity” and inflammation. This therapeutic CBD strain should be easier to find in states like California, now that recreational marijuana has been legalized.




AC/DC is an award-winning sativa-dominant CBD strain that is popular for its low THC content.  The known parent strain, Cannatonic, is usually a 1:1 ratio, whereas AC/DC can have a 20 times higher CBD content than it’s psychoactive sister, THC. This hybrid strain is perfect for anyone interested in feeling happy and relaxed, without the risk of being too stoned.  This high CBD strain is also known to help people with mental focus and should be kept around to keep energy levels up.


AC/DC flower has been tested at up to 19% cannabidiol content, which could be enough to counterbalance the harsh effects of chemotherapy. Whether you need some powerful medicine, or you’re just looking to “take a chill pill”, AC/DC is a specialty cannabis strain that every marijuana enthusiast should try this year!




Harle-Tsu is a cross breed between two popular CBD strains, Harlequin and Sour Tsunami.  This therapeutic strain, created by Southern Humboldt Seed collective, is known for its low THC content of 1% compared to the potential 22% CBD content. Harle-Tsu has been said to help people with chronic pain, inflammation, depression, stress, and it can alleviate headaches. Sour Tsunami is a cross between Sour Diesel and NYC Diesel, which could produce a talkative energy, having the sativa-dominant Sour Diesel as part of the mix.


The high concentration of cannabidiol will make sure that users avoid the psychoactive effects of tetrahydrocannabinol, which could cause anxiety and paranoia if consumed in high doses.  Harle-Tsu would be a great strain to help keep you energized during the day, and relaxed by the evening time. If you are looking for one of the best high CBD strains, you have to try Harle-Tsu as soon as you can get your hands on it!
