Some growers are specifically looking for weed seeds they can use to grow cannabis that is rich in CBD. Should you be such a grower, Dinafem Seeds serves all your needs with the weed seeds of the Shark Shock CBD. The cannabis seeds of the Shark Shock CBD are an ultimate combination of the CBD Crew and the Shark Shock.
The people at Dinafem Seeds are rightfully proud of this type. In order to please fans of a high CBD-content even more, the breeders have developed a CBD-rich variant that evidently has the same premium qualities as the ones that have given the original Critical Mass such an excellent reputation.
CBD weed seeds are weed seeds that will grow into plants containing CBD or cannabidiol in full. Beside Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, CBD is one of the many chemical substances found in cannabis. Until recently THC was central to the entire cannabis culture. THC is the psychoactive substance responsible for making you stoned or high. It can mainly be found in the flower resin of a female cannabis plant. CBD on the other hand has no psychoactive influence but a great number of other effects that make this substance very attractive.
Recent discoveries have shown that in specific cases CBD can contribute to the treatment and cure for a number of illnesses or even replace existing medication. For example, people who are suffering from epilepsy can benefit greatly from CBD to reduce or even stop epileptic symptoms and fits. According to different scientific research projects, CBD possesses anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, painkilling, antibacterial, antianxiety, anti-epileptic and cancer inhibiting properties. At this point in time, CBD as a cannabinoid has the largest medical potential. Cannabis containing high levels of CBD are currently being used in treatment of multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, aids, cancer, rheumatism, Crohn’s disease, Tourette syndrome, Alzheimer’s, chronic disease, migraine, Parkinson’s or fibromyalgia. It can also contribute to stop smoking tobacco.
In theory any cannabis variety can be used as a medicine. Yet when people talk about medicinal cannabis they often refer to cannabis varieties which contain CBD. Beside CBD these species also contain THC but in different levels. Some weed seeds have a relatively low level of CBD substances; others have a higher level of CBD substances. On the other end, some have a higher or lower level of THC. And in between lie all sorts of combinations. Industrial grown hemp, which is related to our cannabis plant, also contains a tiny amount of CBD substances yet no THC.
Because THC is a carrier for CBD (the so called entourage effect) many users of medicinal cannabis choose cannabis that contains both THC and CBD. Only recently growers have started to show interest in plants containing CBD. For a very long time, weed seed producers have mainly focused on the development of cultivars with the highest possible level of THC values. They never considered to work with the available CBD substances. As a result, most weed varieties today contain very little or no CBD at all. Plants that do present certain CBD levels are still an exception among commercially available weed cultivars. Except for high CBD cannabis species, specially developed cultivars that hold a specific CBD level and in some cases also a percentage of THC. CBD levels in such high CBD strains can differ from 2% to up to 20%.
Users of medicinal cannabis will often prefer not to become high or stoned, so they will look for the best cannabis seeds with low THC and high CBD levels. Their best option is to buy high CBD cannabis seeds. This particular cannabis cultivar is grown from medical cannabis seeds and incorporated in cannabis oil or cannabis butter. This will allow them to use cannabis in a healthy way that involves no smoking. An alternative that will also avoid having to smoke is the use of a vaporizer. This device will heat cannabis without the risk of burning it. Active substances like THC and CBD will vaporize from the plant (no burning of plant material) so this vapour can be inhaled. Vaporizing cannabis is a lot healthier than smoking cannabis, so it is definitely recommended when it comes to medicinal use of cannabis.
Cannabis oil made from high CBD cannabis seeds is often referred to as CBD oil. CBD oil can also contain certain levels of THC depending on the cultivar where the cannabis was taken from. CBD oil that contains THC has psychoactive effects and it will make you become stoned or high. This oil is not to be mistaken for CBD only oil that mainly comes from industrial hemp or from hemp seed pressing.
We always recommend consulting a physician or obtain professional medical advice when using medicinal cannabis. Please do not try to be your own doctor! Finding the right cannabis for a specific disease usually takes some time and mostly boils down to ‘trial and error’ of different species, with or without CBD. Each person will react differently so the effect on one person will not always work best for someone else with the same disease.
