CBD Chronic, Chronic (hybrid) x Remedy (indica), was purposefully bred by Serious Seeds to get a high CBD level and be easy growing; a special medicinal strain perfect for new growers.
Heritage & Genetics: CBD Chronic is a mix of Chronic and Remedy (from CBD Crew). Indica parent, Remedy is – like its own parent Cannatonic – super high in CBD. CBD here is 1:1. So you will find an average THC of 5.4% matched by average CBD of 5.8% and for a little context, anything over 5% is high for that cannabinoid.
Flavor & Aroma: Our terpene friends Pinene and Limonene are busy here, giving CBD Chronic a great citrus and pine scent, with woody, earthy undertones.
Effect: Very mellow, and relaxed but with little to no psychoactive effects. Great for those needing to medicate during the day, or who wants the health benefits of cannabis without the THC high. Keep fruit juice at hand as she can give you a dry mouth.
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: CBD Chronic grows quickly and easily, which is great for beginners, and produces a high yield thanks to massive top colas and few small branches; it is not advisable therefore to ‘top’ this helpful strain. The yield can be very high, given the right conditions.
