    Re: High CBD Strain

    I was looking into this breeder as they produce several high CBD strains. Juanita la Lagrimosa may be just what the doctor ordered!
    A Spanish company, Reggae Seeds, is offering a CBD-rich strain called "Juanita la Lagrimosa," which means "Juanita the Tearful." It has tested at 8.8% CBD, 6.8% THC, according to Canna Research Laboratories.
    All of their strains are medical and breed organically if I remember right... cheers!

    If you live in Canada where hemp cropping is legal, you might consider growing some of that. Many (if not most or all) of them fit the profile you're looking for. And since "non-drug" crop seed is generally sold by the pound/kilo and up, the price will be much less.

    You have my sympathy. I would use caution if you are currently taking prescribed medications, especially if taking a combination of different ones. Someone very close to me had an extreme reaction about twelve years ago that she could only describe as a "frightening, maddening, totally-nonfunctional electrical storm" in her brain. Aside from the obvious discomfort, it scared the sh*t out of her - and she's fearless (at times, stupidly so).

    Unfortunately, she was unable to recall just what combination of meds she was taking at the time. They were playing pill-roulette with her, as they are wont to do, and she was also self-medicating with various other meds/etc. She also later had some pretty bad experiences JUST from some of the combinations they played with while playing around with her mind.

    Please let us know if/when you find strains that help even you out. I'd be especially grateful if you also listed whatever meds/herbs/etc. you were taking in combination with. And that goes doubly-so for any bad combinations. There are quite a few out there - but most are in the dark, and the doctors don't seem to be much more knowledgeable (I think some of them are downright sadists).

    Oddly enough (or perhaps not... they do prescribe Dexedrine to people with ADHD), that friend later had some positive experiences with sativas. Seemed to help slow and focus her racing thoughts - at least enough so that the more intelligent "normals" could follow her - and ease the worst of the (nightly) night terrors. Didn't do a thing for he ability to sleep, of course - but one or more of the meds would knock her out for about 18 hours, so that's neither here nor there I guess. She'd go off her meds and it seemed to extend the time between her doing so and the point where she became more-or-less catatonic. I was unable to ascertain whether or not it helped with her auditory and visual hallucinations although I got the impression at the time that she was reacting less to things that I could not hear/see - but she had long ago become a consummate actress (common defense mechanism) so it's hard to be certain.

    But like any head-med, different things affect different people... differently. So be careful with your experimentation/quest and take ALL advice as only the vaguest of generalities.

    And good luck to you!

    Re: High CBD Strain

    If you happen to be located in the Northern California area there are a few high CBD strains in local dispensaries here. Such as Harlequin (I've seen tested at 8% THC // 8% CBD) and a True Blueberry strain that I saw at my local dispensary (5% THC // 9.5% CBD)

    Best of wishes go out to you though.

    Re: High CBD Strain

    I was going to chime in on Harlequin! HashWreck beat me to it! Good man! And say what?! Blueberry like that? I haven't ever read of it having those percentages! A good testament to the variation, I think. These tests should be taken more as "an average".

    And Cap'in! Thank you^5! I am also searching for CBD rich strains.

    And Tortured! You give possibly the best advice in here. Anyone on other medications needs to be very careful. While cannabis does not interact with most medications, it is known to interact with some anti-psychotics and anti-depressants. And the outcome of these interactions are not well known. Better safe than sorry!

    For example, when I ventured into using cannabis for the first time, I was on a handful of medications. Only one interacted. It's the most well known SSRI in the world.

    The interaction I experienced (and there was no information I found on this at that time... the only info on the net I found in the future is that it interacts in the first place!)... Was that I felt the cannabis for very long periods of time. The first joint I smoked, I felt its after effects for a week. When I quit taking said SSRI, I was really disappointing that my buds had lost both strength and length! However, I would never intentionally mix the two! Who knows what it is doing to your brain. I never thought of it til now, but it could be why I am much less sensitive to buds than anyone I know.
    Then again, I seem to have a weird natural drug tolerance. Which sucks, especially if you have surgery.

    Anyway, thats all I wanted to chime in. Be very careful if you take medications. I will try to dig up what little information on the subject I have found if anyone is interested.

    Re: High CBD Strain

    I tried to check this... Sativa's, from what I remembered, tend to have less CBD.. Hazes being primarily Sativa dominate, your post really struck me as very interesting.

    I found information to be all over the place! I found one haze to be 1.6%, which is considered pretty high! Things being tested at 1% are considered high usually. Then I found some at .2%... I think it may depend what they are bred with... But who knows! I am more inclined to trust what you say though. Some hazes have gotten me more "couch-lock" which (i think) is more associated with CBD rich plants.

    Definitely not out to prove you wrong bro, so please do not take it as such! I found it only to be inconclusive! With at least one result having really high levels of CBD! I will mention that those tests are considered even by the test-doer's to be fairly inaccurate (from what I have read, they say that chemical quantities vary from bud to bud on the same plant, and even on the same bud) and are to be taken more of as an average.

    One thing I have began to think... Maybe "couch-lock" is more due to a certain terpene content? The highest CBD rich plant I have read about (Harlequin) is supposed to have a very short "high". Like half an hour or so! However, they say it still helps with pain after that... That is part of what made me think the whole terpenoid thing. Then again, the THC content of harlequin on average is fairly low. Like 6%-8%... So maybe that is why. I don't know!

    Man, I really wish they could do more scientific research on this stuff! It makes me really mad! I need to know these things! Now! Argh!

    Sorry for my rambling. Just ignore THsea...

    Re: High CBD Strain

    Omrita is a great strain that is high in CBD. It gets rid of my nausea from my meds, and stops spasms in my back and legs, takes my pain from a 5/10 to a manageable 2/10 or 1/10. I am lucky to live close to a collective that stocks it and is active in research into CBD . I do like the Harlequin, does the same as Omrita for me.

    @Smoke2Js

    I think I visited that very collective on Embarcadero in Oakland on my way to the Pacific Cannabis Expo this weekend. If that's the one you mean, of course. Have not tried the Omrita, but I might have to keep my eyes open for it.

    Went with the Chemdawg 4 on this particular occasion.

    Re: High CBD Strain

    I can recommend three excellent high CBD strains by Medicinal Organic Nursery...

    Blueberry Cheese (Blue Cheese)
    Harlequin
    Purp Diesel

    I have grown and consumed their Blue Cheese (POTM 2nd place July) and it was fantastic! I do not care for any of the Sativa like effects either. Even the slightest amount and I start feeling uncomfortable and anxious.

    I believe the Purp Diesel is available right now, while the other two I mentioned will be available later this month.

    Re: High CBD Strain

    What about Hemp? Does Hemp contain nothing but CBD?

    I'm looking into Hemp, because i cant consume any THC as i could go into psychosis easily. Been there before not a fun place to be in. So, I'm not looking to get high.

    What if i grow some hemp and smoke that.. would it have a fare amount of CBD?

    Sorry if this sounds stupid, but i need Cannabidiol for my illness.

    !!!CBD!!!

    [EDIT: Canadian hemp strains are typically very low in THC(sic) and high in CBD. If I'm not mistaken, CBD levels of 6.5%-6.9% are not unheard of. If the "less than 1% THC" is still too much for your particular needs, the Bast Fiber Research Institute in the Ukraine has developed hemp strains with as low as .01% THC. And the cultivation of industrial hemp is not technically illegal on a federal level so much as you might watch your grandchildren grow up - and old - while you are waiting on the DEA to approve the permit you are required to have in order to grow it. For example, do a Google search on Evanescent Press in Mendocino county, California and hemp permit.]

    ^^^^^^

    Thank you, for replaying to my post. I'm still looking into it. But I do not know where i can buy (Industrial Hemp) seeds. As i currently live in the EU, Poland. That's one problem.
