A magical combination of CBD-rich Juanita Lagrimosa and high-yielding Critical, Royal Medic is one of Royal Seeds special 1:1 medical varieties. With a balanced cannabinoid profile (10% THC/10% CBD ) and gorgeous fruity, hazey flavor.
Heritage & Genetics: Critical (with its strong skunky, Afghani origins) x Juanita Lagrimosa (Reina Madre x NYC Diesel) combined at the hands of Royal Queen Seeds’ master growers to produce a high CBD, medical strain, Royal Medic. Suitable for both medical and recreational users this 75/25 sativa/indica hybrid combines lovely flavors with a light buzz and great, soothing properties.
Flavor & Aroma: Fruit, skunk, and a hazey citrus is what will come over most strongly in Royal Medic. These aromas also come through in the flavor and the smooth smoke, which is also notably sweet. In well-cured bud, you will also detect some lovely spicy and earthy notes. All in all, very sativa-like and generally delicious.
Effect: Clear-headed and sativa-like, the high from Royal Medic is uplifting and mellow. This strain will relax you, removing day-to-day cares, and the light body-buzz will take care of any general aches and pains. So, if you’re a recreational consumer, don’t be put off by the ‘medical’ side of this versatile little phenotype; it will also be a great daytime smoke for staying active, happy and focussed.
Medical: CBD strains, particularly with a 1:1 THC/CBD ratio, are thought to have a broad range of medicinal uses including helping with pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, and seizures associated with some forms of epilepsy. Strains with a balanced cannabinoid content have also been indicated to have calming effects that could help with nausea, gastrointestinal disorder, fibromyalgia, and muscle spasms. While not definitive, some research has also suggested that strains with a balanced THC and CBD ratio may help improve the restlessness, hyperactivity and inattentiveness associated with ADD/ADHD.
Grow Characteristics: Yield is a modest medium, but the balanced nature of this strain and its speed of flowering (8 weeks on average) make it well worth trying, whether you’re a home-growing medical consumer or a recreational minded sort looking for a good medical strain. Royal Medic CBD is pretty hardy, so good for in- and outdoors. Under ideal conditions, it produces lovely lime-colored bud, with an even dusting of frosty trichomes. Experienced growers can expect excellent results with this strain.
