What are High CBD Cannabis Strains and Their Effects? – Ask Your Bud Tender


As the realm of medical marijuana dispensaries has expanded rapidly in the last few years, breeders of high-quality marijuana have turned their eye on high-CBD medical cannabis research.

CBD Strains

As a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, many recreational growers had worked to reduce CBD in their strains, but today it is making a resurgence mostly for medical purposes.

Here are a few of the most popular high-CBD strains available today and their most common medicinal uses. 


This notable strain is a very high-CBD option with up to 24 percent CBD. It is commonly used for treating seizures and epilepsy-related disorders. It has also been used for patients with Alzheimer’s and other diseases that affect their motor skills. For recreational users, it can be used to achieve clarity and focus in your tasks. 

Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte’s Web gained widespread notoriety a few years ago when it was featured in several news articles about the potential for treating children with concentrates. Demand for this strain skyrocketed and now it is available in many different formats and widely regarded as one of the best strains for pain management. 


Warlock is actually a hybrid strain that is high in CBD but still contains a notable amount of THC as well. Many people choose Warlock for pain relief as well as treating anxiety and depression. Ask your local dispensary about CBD-heavy Warlock variants for your ailments. If you are lacking motivation, this is a good choice, even for recreational users. 


Harlequin is noted for having an extremely potent CBD content. It is touted as a prime choice for dealing with chronic pain and stress. It has nearly three times as much CBD in it as THC, putting it up there with ACDC for strength. 

Ringo’s Gift

A newer hybrid that has seen lots of variation is Ringo’s Gift. This is another strain that requires some research as the actual CBD content can vary widely from a 50/50 CBD/THC mix to a 90/10 ratio. Generally used for extreme stress relief, this particular strain can be very versatile for treating other health issues as well.
