High CBD Strains

High CBD Strains

Cannabis geneticists can create strains that are particularly high in CBD, with or without the THC. As the CBD market becomes more sophisticated, some flower on the market is now over 20% Cannabidiol (CBD). These strains can be purchased as CBD cigarettes, prerolls or in a jar for “self service.” However, CBD vape manufacturers such as TribeTokes also sell these strains in CBD vape oil form.

In this article, we’ll explore the top rated high CBD strains on the market so you can decide which is best for you!

Understanding the Benefits of CBD

Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring compound that does not produce the “high” linked with cannabis use. CBD has gained popularity recently for its potential therapeutic benefits, supported by a growing body of scientific research.

Here are some of the possible benefits of CBD:

  1. Easing pain: CBD has been studied for its potential pain-relieving properties. Some research suggests CBD may help reduce chronic pain associated with arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and neuropathic pain.
  2. Improving sleep: CBD may also have a positive effect on sleep. CBD may help enhance the quality of sleep and reduce insomnia. 

It is vital to note that while these potential benefits are supported by scientific research, more studies and clinical research are needed to understand the effects of CBD on the body. Morever, CBD products are not yet regulated by the FDA. So, do your research and only buy from reputable sources.


Factors to Consider When Choosing a High-CBD Strain

CBD has gained popularity recently for its potential health benefits. One of the best ways to use CBD is through high-CBD strains of cannabis. However, choosing the right strain for your needs can be challenging with many options. Here are some essential factors to consider when choosing a high-CBD strain.

CBD to THC Ratio

One of the factors to consider when selecting high-CBD strain is the ratio of CBD to THC. Some people prefer strains with a higher CBD-to-THC ratio, as they offer CBD’s potential benefits without THC’s psychoactive effects. It’s important to note that everyone’s tolerance and preference are different, so experimenting with different ratios can help you find the best strain for you.

Terpene Profile

Terpenes are aromatic compounds that give cannabis its distinct scent and flavor. They also play a role in the potential therapeutic effects of the plant. Different terpenes can have other effects, such as reducing anxiety or promoting relaxation. When selecting a high-CBD strain, consider the terpene profile and its impact on your experience. For example, strains high in terpene myrcene may have a more sedative effect, while strains high in limonene may be more uplifting.

Method of Consumption

Another factor to consider is the method of consumption. High-CBD strains can be consumed through smoking, vaping, or edibles. Smoking or vaping may offer faster effects but may not be the best choice if you have respiratory issues. Edibles, on the other hand, can take longer to take effect but offer longer-lasting effects. Consider your personal preferences and lifestyle when choosing a method of consumption.

Origin and Quality

Finally, it’s essential to consider the origin and quality of the high-CBD strain. Look for organic and sustainable strains that can impact the plant’s quality and potential therapeutic effects. Additionally, consider the source of the strain and ensure that it has been lab tested for purity and potency.




Sour Tsunami was bred in Humboldt County in California by crossing Sour Diesel with NYC Diesel. The flavor is more on the herbal side, and the effects are a bit more calming than its Sour Diesel sativa parent. We find Sour Tsunami to be relaxing (take a rip and feel those shoulders drop!) and helpful for pain management.



Juicy Fruit is a cross between an Afghani indica and a Thai sativa. Flavors are described as ranging from tangy (like fruit punch) to sweet (like a piña colada). We find Juicy Fruit to be happiness inducing and helpful for stress relief, with the benefit of a smooth fruity flavor.



Ringo’s Gift is a high-CBD strain that crosses Harle-Tsu and ACDC. It is named for the late Lawrence Ringo, a cannabis activist and CBD pioneer (RIP RINGO). Ringo’s Gift is popular in the cannabis clubs of Barcelona, known for causing deep relaxation without the “couch lock” effect (making it better for relaxed socializing).



CBD Kush is a mild strain with a balanced cannabinoid profile, known for being a solid choice for people with a low tolerance. Its psychoactive effects are subtle, offering a tame experience that eases the muscles into relaxation without brain fog or paranoia. We find CBD Kush to be helpful for easing pain and inflammation.




CBD Mango Haze is an aromatic blend of tropical flavors that results in a smooth, slightly fruity draw. While CBD Mango Haze is a sativa, we find it to be relaxing and stress relieving, good for daytime use but doesn’t necessarily keep you awake.



Medihaze is a sativa-dominant strain that crosses genetics from 3 different CBD rich parents. We find it to be on the energizing side, and in addition to its uplifting effects it is known for providing relief from pain and inflammation. The flavor profile is a subtle mix of pine, mint and spice.

Hawaiian Dream flower

Hawaiian Dream

Hawaiian Dream is an uplifting sativa strain that crosses Blue Dream with a Hawaiian variety. Hawaiian Dream is best known for its high CBD content which is often twice as abundant as its THC. Patients look to this high-CBD sativa to remedy pain, inflammation, and anxiety without physical heaviness or a foggy head.



ACDC is known for its above average CBD ratios, and provides relief for a variety of ailments. The strain induces little to no intoxicating effects, leaving us relaxed and uplifted. This relaxation is coupled with an increase in energy and focus, making it a great candidate for daytime consumption. The earthy flavor tastes mostly of pine with a hint of sweetness – very refreshing!



A descendant of a Nepali indica, coupled with Thai and Swiss strains, Harlequin is an international lovechild that is known for its clear-headed sativa effects. Harlequin’s high levels of CBD make this strain one of the most effective out there for counteracting potential THC paranoia. Flavors can range from earthy musk to sweet and fruity.



Charlotte’s Web was specifically bred by the Stanley Brothers of Colorado for its high CBD and low THC content. Charlotte’s Web products are hemp-derived and are non-intoxicating. Charlotte’s Web gained popularity after being featured on CNN for helping a young girl named Charlotte.




Sweet and Sour Widow (S&SW) is a 70/30 indica-dominant strain with a subtle sweet aroma. S&SW is derived from White Widow genetics and has a very balanced cannabinoid profile, resulting in mild psychoactive effects and making this strain suitable for novice consumers. For those of you who like sour cannabis profiles but also have a sweet tooth, this is the strain for you.



Remedy is an indica cross between Cannatonic and Afghan Skunk, and is a high-CBD strain that induces little to no psychoactive effects. Remedy has a woody, slightly lemon scent, but a very subtle flavor profile – it’s a good choice for people who don’t like overly powerful tastes from terpenes. Remedy is known for mellow relaxation without the head and body effects.


CBD Shark

CBD Shark is an indica-dominant cannabis strain that helps patients treat an array of symptoms like pain, anxiety, and inflammation without the overly intoxicating effects induced by many high-THC strains. This clear-headed hybrid descends from a Shark Shock indica, but as for its second parent, we can only be sure that it was some high-CBD variety. Its aroma is comprised of sweet notes of fruit accented by subtle hints of garlic and herb.



Pennywise is a cross between Harlequin and Jack the Ripper, a true “killer combination” (knee slapper, we know). BUT FEAR NOT – rich in CBD, its psychoactive effects are mild and relaxing. We find Pennywise to create a feeling of euphoria, along with mental clarity stemming from Jack the Ripper’s cerebrally focused effects.



Stephen Hawking Kush (SHK) is named for famed scientist Dr. Stephen Hawking, and was created by pollenating a Harle-Tsu female with a Sin City Kush male. SHK is known to have berry flavors that mix with a minty note. The soothing, relaxing effects help keep pain away and can suppress nausea. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts it did not make us smarter.
