High CBD Strains
Cannabidiol(CBD) is an active chemical(cannabinoid) that has taken the forefront of medical marijuana science. Not to be confused with psychoactive THC, CBD is claimed to be a pain-relieving, relaxing and sedative component of cannabis – without the psychoactive effects. The demand for high CBD cannabis will only get greater, as it’s benefits are seen more and more often.
The cannabis seed breeders at Medical Marijuana Genetics have been selectively breeding high CBD level strains. All starting from their flagship Candida strain, which has been tested 20.65% CBD to 0.7% THC. Bred with a line of quality hybrids, these new high CBD strains pack a punch!

Claiming to be the highest CBD and lowest THC content of any strain currently available on the seed market, Candida (CD-1) is a test destroyer 20.65% CBD : 0.7% THC strain. Apparently named after the founder of Medical Marijuana Genetics’ late mother and translates in Latin to ‘bright light’.
A consistently high CBD strain when grown from seed, Candida lab results come in at CBD levels of 20.6% to 10.9% CBD content. The THC levels rise with higher CBD levels, however they never seem to break past a low 1% THC content. Compared to other popular high CBD strains, Candida’s CBD and THC balance holds more consistency in selections.
Little to no psychoactive effects. Candida can be grown both indoors and outdoors. The fragrant terpenes can be brought out strong with a correctly prepared soil mix (check out True Living Organics). Yields: 400 gr/m2, flowering time is about 9 weeks.
This hybrid cannabis strain’s genetics come from ACDC x Harlequin. Cracking Candida feminized seeds will produce two varying phenotypes; a sativa and an indica. The sativa pheno has more distance between internodes and a larger height, which can be a challenge for some growers. The indica pheno pumps out higher yields on an easy compact plant.
The sativa pheno has been tested with containing the higher amount of CBD, however not yielding as well. The indica pheno is the prized high yield producer. Pick wisely.
What do you get when you cross a Blue Dream, Girl Scout Cookies and Candida? You get that Hiydrow boii. This sativa dominant strain flaunts a high 300-500 gr/m2 yield.
Producing full structured large colas, Hiydrow (HY-1) is a hybrid 2:1 CBD to THC strain. Tested, Hiydrow’s CBD levels ranged from 16.5% – 11.1% and it’s THC count ranged from 8.4%. to 6.3%. The higher CBD plants were also found to posses higher THC content. These seeds are offered by Medical Marijuana Genetics.
Hiydrow is a high CBD ratio strain that has a slight psychoactive effect; her small THC levels does not mean no THC levels. Be warned. However, the elevated CBD content of Hidrow seems to null out any real heavy psychoactive effects.
Hiydrow’s flowering time is 7-8 weeks and can be grown outdoors, indoors or in a greenhouse. Large green calyxes on solid buds. Bright red hairs during the end of flowering, density and yields are a plus.
If you’re a sativa haze lover, Green Doctor is the high CBD strain you need to try. Experience a higher THC version of a CBD strain that leans towards it’s haze genetics.
Green Doctor has a high CBD level: 16.9% – 10.2% combined a moderate THC count: 12% to 3.7%. Perfect for users who want both CBD and THC. Green Doctor yields: 300-500 gr/m2.
Green Doctor is sativa dominant, and finishes it’s flowering process in about 10 weeks. Indoors, outdoor or greenhouse environments all work well with this mold resistant strain. This sativa dominant strain will need more room than other high CBD strains, 10 weeks of flowering is 10 weeks of growth!
The buds are spear-like and solid, with an aroma of lemony pine cleaner. The energetic sativa psychoactive effects bring a not-the-usual option to quality high CBD strains in cannabis seed banks.
A rare Mexican cut strain ‘Tijuana’ adds some spice into this high CBD cannabis plant. This tall growing plant is mostly sativa and does well outdoors, as well as in a greenhouse or indoor environment.
Txaki stretches and grows large during flowering, and is ready in a worthwhile 10 – 11 weeks. Indoor growers may have difficulty if they are growing Txaki in a small area. Outdoor growers should provide adequate direct sunlight and a complete nutrient regime.
A high CBD strain, Txaki’s CBD levels tested ranged from 17.5% to- 8.9%, while it’s THC percentage ranged from 11.4% to 4.5%. Txaki is ideal for the user who want’s a cerebral THC effect along with a therapeutic high CBD content.
Yields 300-500 gr/m2.
Another UNREAL high CBD strain, Nightingale has tested a whopping 20.3% to 10.3% CBD content in studies. THC levels vary significantly from plant to plant.
Nightingale flowers in 8 – 9 weeks. Indoors, outdoor or wherever you are, give this candy hybrid strain a dry location with good airflow if you want to finish these dense A+ grade nuggets right. Yields are 300-500 gr/m2.
This Nightingale strain is named after Florence Nightingale, a trailblazing figure in nursing. Nightingale has very high CBD levels in an easy to grow Indica dominant plant.
Super duper berry flavor and aroma. A prime example of a ‘candy hybrid’. Nightingale buds are top-shelf top-quality dankness. Purple color steaks during flowering and a high yield make for a perfect high CBD strain.
What is a high CBD strain?
A high CBD strain is a variety of the cannabis plant that contains high levels of the cannabinoid CBD. CBD is the prime choice of medical marijuana users looking for a relaxing, sedative effect.
- CBD stands for cannabidiol, an active chemical(cannabinoid) in the cannabis plant.
- Present in high quantities, CBD ranks in as the second most voluminous cannabinoid in cannabis, with the first being psychoactive THC.
- Revered for it’s usage in medical marijuana, CBD’s soothing qualities do not induce any noticeably ‘high’ effects. Rather CBD provides relief and relaxation.
- High CBD strains are defined as having over a 3-4% CBD profile.
Cannabis seed breeders try to hit or exceed a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio for their strains. The less THC present, the less psychoactive effects there are going to be. The option to choose your effect opens the cannabis door up for users who do not want to feel high, or do.
Medical Marijuana Genetics Seeds
Medical Marijuana Genetics was founded in 2014. The founder’s mother was fighting late stage pancreatic cancer. After the mother’s first dose of cannabis oil, she was able to tend her garden, get up and move around fairly pain-free in the time leading up to her death.
Cannabis oil had given her a therapeutic effect that was easily seen by those close to her. This evoked inspiration to explore the science of medical marijuana. Medical Marijuana Genetics started out as an informative medical cannabis website that now has evolved into a full scale plant and seed breeding company.
For the majority of cannabis strains available on the market, breeders found out quick that this illusive cannabinoid CBD is not always easy to produce in quality regularly. A few breeders were up for that challenge. Medical Marijuana Genetics was formed by award winning growers and breeders from the Basque region of Spain. Focusing their efforts mainly on developing CBD dominant marijuana seeds and strains.
Using top quality hybrids and established cannabis strains, Medical Marijuana Genetics successfully created their flagship Candida (CD-1) strain. First lab tests results blew minds, with Candida testing up to a monstrous 20.65% CBD – 0.7% THC content. Claimed to be the highest known consistent ratios in a high CBD seed strain yet. These excellent results fueled the fire for the creation of a whole line of high CBD strains fit for each and every grower.
These seeds just dropped as of February 2017, so get them while they’re hot! Medical Marijuana Genetics strains all contain a high amount of beneficial CBD. THC and terpenoid levels vary per strain.
