I am looking for the best CBD strains. Not just "it has higher than regular weed, like 5% vs. 1%." More like 20% or something, and the lower the THC the better (wtf?) I would like to try this for personal and for extended family/friends who don't get high. I've heard of Charlotte's Web. Is that the best? Or is there something better? Any leads to where these can be obtained will be much appreciated. I have some beans gifted to me by @Easty last year from his project with CBD. I would like to run them along with any other suggestions.

I've had and grown Charlotte's web from a clone only I got from a med grow here in CO.
It was a very very high cbd, and little to no thc. Was a lab tested cut I got, typically 18 to 20% cbd, and less than 1% thc. No high at all, even for super sensitive folk.

The Atonic CBD from bad dawg imho has a high cbd to it, I can feel it for sure, but it also had a fair bit of thc too. Imho just by my personal guess, I'd say the Atonic is about 10 to 15% cbd and around the same, maybe a bit more thc.
Gives me a little buzz, but a really good effect from the cbd.

These are from comparisons to known tested weed here in CO.

Thanks guys. Top 3 on Deebs' link - very interesting for sure. +1 on ACDC though :punkrocker:. Sometimes I wonder if some of the "all show no go" buds I've bought were CBD lol
The cbd effect to me feels like a weight off my shoulders. Like a non high relaxation.
Sorta like you just took off an 80# pack, and got camp set after a long backpacking hike, boots are off and an ahhh.... moment happens. Lol

cool, I need to know what I'm looking for otherwise I'll think it's bunk lol
When it's got it, it's literally like your knots and tensions ease down and slide off of you. Lol.
Also something I've noticed is if smoked by itself a high cbd strain has no high to it. And if a thc strain is smoked after it acts as normal toking.
But if I hit a high cbd strain after a high thc strain its really a wave of oohhs and ahhs. Lol. The whole synergy working together thing.

I like these kinds of bioassays. I really am intrigued now. My GF really wants to see if they'll work for her. I like that synergistic effect and how different it is based on the timing.

I have been on the CBD quest for a few years now. I grow a few every year. It is really not as simple as finding a high CBD strain since the phenos will vary widely. I have come to the conclusion that the only sure bet is to buy a verified clone.

For me the THC/CBD balance, not the pure CBD, is what works best, especially in edibles & salves. Even my Mom agreed to that with the salves.

The trouble is knowing what you have without lab testing. @Schwaggy P shared some seeds of Green Crack CBD/Jabba’s Stash (I have been calling it Jabba’s Cure) with me that I grew out last year, I have one pheno that I really like & reach for it often, I had it all ready to send out for lab testing when this pandemic started & it never got done. I wanted to understand the high for my own assessments since I am not set up for a mother plant anyway. Need to figure out how to identify it better.

I have come close to buying so-called verified high CBD clones a couple times but have not identified a source I trust yet. Still looking.

In the meantime I buy pure CBD isolate to add to my salves & edibles.

Thank you Baja for the insight. The pure CBD isolate, which one do you prefer and where do you get it? You have given me a lot to think about. I have found a place I'm looking at for ACDC seeds, but in the meanwhile, I would like to try the isolate. I have tried a CBD with high ratings on amazon, but you know how that can be.

I have tried a few different CBD isolates, the one that I have settled in on is from Lazarus Naturals, they have a 5 gm container that I split between the caramels & the salves. I have had good results with their isolate but there are others. I say that but will add I don’t use it on its own, I personally prefer at least some THC, in fact I shoot for more THC to CBD on my edibles. Sleep magic.

I was not overly impressed with AC/DC but I only had one pheno, unless grown from a clone every single pheno will be different so take all the hype talk with a grain of salt. An AC/DC cross might be more to my liking.

I have never heard of the Raspberry Boogie but I like the sound of the write up & our friend @Bodean should know. Still will be different phenos in any pack same as everything.

I was growing something called Cherry Wine as part of my current journal and by circumstance, smoking it. I had gone to a smoke shop in search of the seedy weed they sell. While I don't have any other cbd herb to compare the high to, I can tell you it has a strong cherry odor, not particularly difficult to grow although I plucked them while they were in veg, and in no way did it get me high lol. Had less than 3% thc and 15% cbd I think.

Sebring @OG likes Meditative Medicinals for his CBD isolate. I haven't tried them yet because I'm still working with cannatonic that I grew outdoors. Cannatonic gives a nice body high with its 1:1 ratio.

You know, I can send you a shit ton of Cherry Wine seeds for free if you want. Only thing is, cross-pollination of any kind tends to re-awaken the once dormant THC producing gene in the strain. Also they might be a herm bunch. You might grow weed that is like 7% thc and 7% cbd for example. But send me your info in messages if u want and Ill make it happen.
