The more we learn about the beneficial properties of CBD or Cannabidiol, the more people are becoming interested in finding out which strains are the best for this amazing compound. CBD is the cannabinoid most associated with medicinal relief. As more and more patients are ditching prescription drugs and seeking out this more natural way of relieving ailments, knowing what you're growing is vital. Higher CBD strains with lower amounts of THC are a great way to kick those daily aches and pains and not get bogged down.

Some strains have been bred to produce large amounts of CBD with next to no THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis. While these strains have a distinct benefit for those who cannot consume THC, finding a strain with a near 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC is ideal. THC works with the other cannabinoids to further enhance their relief properties. Also for some, finding a strain that doesn't overwhelm is important and low THC/high CBD strains are perfect for that. Here is our list of the best CBD strains you can grow to help you make it through the day.

FAST EDDY

Fast Eddy is a popular CBD strain, that was bred from a Cheese, a Juanita la Lagrimosa and believe it or not a ruderalis. Fast Eddy is as fast as the name implies, with a flowering time of only six to seven weeks, with harvest coming just a week later. It is an indica-dominant strain with high CBD and a lower THC content. While flowering it has a heavy citrusy aroma, surprising for a strain with a heavy Cheese genetic. It is easy to manage in the garden and won't grow out of control. You can expect pretty impressive yields coming in at around 450 grams per square meter indoors. The high is clear-minded and has an emphasis on the body. The high CBD level makes this a perfect strain for everyday relief.
