A remarkable medicinal strain, Charlotte’s Angel from Dutch Passion is an 80/20 sativa-dominant hybrid that is non-psychoactive. She provides all the flavor of strong THC varieties but without the high. Yet, you will still feel the distinctive mellowing effects of the crazily high concentration of CBD (15%).
Heritage / Genetics: CBD Charlotte’s Angel is a cross of CBD rich Dutch Charlotte x Red Angel, a CBD strain unique to The Netherlands. Dutch Charlotte has strong indicas in her lineage, like Reclining Buddha, plus Skunk, and further back Afghani (indica) and Mexican (sativa) landraces. Red Angel is a newbie specially developed in Amsterdam to be rich in CBD. The combination of these parents has produced an exceptionally high quantity of CBD (15%) and a rich palette of other cannabinoids to boot.
Flavor and Aroma: Indica lovers will immediately recognize the strong herbal qualities in CBD Charlotte’s Angel’s aroma. Underneath it, you will get a whiff of diesel, with plenty of the terpene Pinene giving the strain a distinctly piney scent too. In the flavor, you will catch skunky notes with some spicy, incense-like hints as well.
Effect: The effects of CBD Charlotte’s Angel, while not getting you baked, are still noticeable. You will have a feeling of warmth and wellbeing, clear-headedness, and relaxation whether you are using it for medical purposes or recreational. There are benefits to this kind of effect for recreational users too: it can be a great daytime toke, help you manage your tolerance without having to take a T-break, and reduces any cravings you may have while still allowing you to feel medicated.
Medical: CBD Charlotte’s Angel THC ratio is so low that she produces little to no ‘high’ effects. Her CBD ratio though is through the roof, usually between 10 and 16%. CBD is key to cannabis’ medical benefits and is thought to help in the relief of anxiety, stress, pain and seizures. In addition, she has a pretty high CBN ratio (0.3%) which may be particularly helpful for inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. Lastly, there is a good deal of CBC too (0.6%), the cannabinoid being further researched for its potentially useful properties in assisting with the treatment of cancer. CBD Charlotte’s Angel may be a good strain to try making concentrates and creams with.
Grow characteristics: Taking about 60 days to flower, CBD Charlotte’s Angel can produce an above average yield under ideal conditions. She’s not too picky and produces large, dense, colas with few branches making her relatively easy to harvest and manicure. Bud is dark green, frosty and sticky. Dutch Passion have worked on CBD Charlotte’s Angel specifically with medical users in mind. That goes for the grow too, also making an autoflowering variety for those looking for a really easy home-grow with the same ultimate benefits as the big sister variety.
