CBD Rich Varieties of Cannabis:
CBD or cannabidiol is a compound of cannabis, non-psychoactive, possessing diverse properties recently revealed by medical studies:
- Pain relief
- Strengthens bones
- Anti-psychotic (paranoia, schizophrenia) that can be caused by THC
New varieties high in CBD are constantly hitting the market of medical cannabis. Although illegal in Switzerland and most countries of the European Union (because also containing THC), these varieties have real therapeutic functions. Depending on the ratio (proportion) between CBD and THC, the variety will be recommended for a particular pathology and not another.
A variety may be high in THC, in CBD or both. These two compounds have different medicinal properties, of which some are amplified when the two compounds are present. Add to these properties different terpenes (synonym: essential oils; more than 120 terpenes are present in cannabis), and the synergistic potential become significant.
Although the varieties listed below have a tendency (phenotypes) to contain higher percentages of CBD, you should know that it will not be necessarily the case for each crop. Take the Critical Mass or Cannatonic varieties as examples. These varieties can express a profile of high levels of THC with only minimal levels of CBD but you can just as well have levels of cannabinoids (and terpenes) reversed for these same varieties according to the phenotype. It can vary according to genetics but also with the way in which a variety is grown. To note that even if they are rich in CBD and with recognized therapeutic properties, these varieties are illegal for sale and consumption, in Switzerland and in the European Union, because they also have a high level of THC. For several years, CBD CREW is active in searching for new varieties rich in CBD.
